The 90 Days program is a four-pronged approach. The first thing you do is identify and break your "Deadly Dating" patterns. Then you go on what I call a "Dating Program of Three," where you date three guys—no sex with any of them. Number three—you do the inner work where you work on your self-sabotaging ideas, your beliefs, like "I'm too old," "I'm too fat" or "There are no good men out there." You also cultivate what I call your "Diamond Self," which really helps you bust through shyness. The last thing that you do is you get yourself a "Love Mentor." Now this is somebody who is like a fairy godmother, who gives you the most profound support and really helps you find "the one." And all of these things work together and help you succeed in creating the love you really want.

Qualified therapists can tell you what science and history have to say about various relationship issues. But who knows more than someone who has been through the same exact issue as you? I am, by no means, discouraging therapy as it’s an incredibly valuable tool for a healthy life. However, there is tremendous value in a personal understanding of raw human behavior as it relates to a specific situation. And by that I mean...it can be extremely helpful to talk to someone who has "been there". We know that relationships can be very complicated and situations can get very specific. Our goal at YourTango is to help you find each other and connect around common relationship issues (good and bad). Comment, rate comments, use our forums and meet people who share your views and experiences. Learn, share, connect and affirm...because after all, you are the experts.

Us romantics subscribe to the notion that, lingerie is a window into a woman's soul. It shows how she feels about herself and how she wants to express herself to her lover. And while communication is essential for any relationship, nowhere does a lover risk potential miscommunication in gift-giving than in the purchase of lingerie! We've all dated someone too bashful to step inside a Victoria's Secret. That's a recipe for under-the-mistletoe rejection! Fortunately, over in England, a shop called John Lewis thoughtfully created a"lingerie academy" for men, complete with leather couches, Wii and free beer, to take the terror out of T&A gift-giving. What are these daring men learning? We scoured the observations of the Times of London's brave reporter and here's the top tips for buying lingerie.
