Turns out the qualities people find most attractive about others are ones we can control: Grooming, diet, posture — not the beauty you were born (or not born) with. So, rejoice: You don't have to be a supermodel to get dates and be noticed by men.
I've never been afraid to ask for what I want in bed. The idea that some women can't ask for what they want, or don't know what they want in the first place, is foreign to me. However, I'm well-aware that I may not be in the majority here. Guys have told me other women become self-conscious when asking for something risqué or kinky — and that's a crying shame.
Taking a break is one of the most challenging, frustrating, and saddening parts of a relationship. No one wants to feel as though their relationship has failed or that they themselves have somehow failed. But sometimes, a break is necessary. Not only is it necessary, sometimes, it's a good thing.

The Journal of Marriage and Family recently conducted a study which found that there are few advantages for married couples as far as psychological well-being, health or social ties, compared with unmarried couples living together. The study shows that while there are great benefits to marriage and cohabitation over the single life, these benefits weaken as couples depart the "honeymoon period."
I've never been afraid to ask for what I want in bed. I guess because during my teenage years I figured out I was/am a perv and I just owned it. But in my decade-plus of hooking up with dudes, I've come to see being clear about what I want is a bit rare: Guys have told me other women become self-conscious when asking for something risqué or kinky.
January and February don't have the happiest reputations, as far as months go. The short days and cold nights, the post-holiday hangover, the fact that summer is such a long time away... This can all take a toll on your relationship if you're not careful. The good news: There are many fun, easy ways to inject some fun into your relationship in the winter and keep from getting bored.
Love is in the air as we approach Valentine's Day, the sexiest of holidays for serious and not-so serious couples alike. And whether your V-Day date involves staying at home with a movie or a weekend in wine country, the best way to set the sexy mood with your partner is by donning some hot lingerie.
Every month, I always enjoy reading Jake's column in Glamour magazine. Since 1956, it's been penned by a slew of anonymous, single men who've helped countless women navigate the dating world by writing honestly and openly about the game of love from a man's perspective. One of the more recent Jakes has written a book, "Always Hit On The Wingman: And 9 Other Secret Rules For Getting The Love Life You Want."
If you have yet to hear the term slut-shaming, then you're a wee bit behind the times. Slut-shaming is when someone "shames" a woman for, basically, being sexy or having "too much" sex. For example, you see a girl walking down the street in barely-there clothing and you turn to your friend and you say: "What a slut!" You've just slut-shamed her. You don't know anything about her; you're just judging her by her looks.
