Are we hard-wired for love?
I co-hosted a radio show this week with special guest Dr. Adam Sheck, an Imago Relationship Therapist. He and I became friends via Facebook and realized we think alike and often write about the same things at the same time. One of the things we discussed last night was the three C’s of relationships. I thought it would be helpful to share them here.

After a new man enters your life and he becomes your boyfriend you naturally want to fold him into every aspect of your life. Over time you will want to introduce him to your friends, your colleagues and ultimately your family. But introductions should be handled with care and as we have learned, should be timed appropriately.

The results of the man survey (otherwise known as Askmen.com's Grate Male Survey) are in. And they have given us a rare, coveted glimpse into the male psyche. One of the questions, in particular, piqued our interest. It's semi cheating-related and reads as follows: "Have you ever fantasized about a girlfriend or wife's friend?" See how the men answered.
We're not going to lie. A man boasting abs chiseled to perfection and biceps that pop just enough when flexed (without shredding shirts He-Man style) will no-doubt turn our heads. And even if caught mid check-him-out glance, we're not about to look away. But for a man to achieve a skyrocketing score on the sexiness scale there's got to be more to him than physical assets. Throw in these seven traits and he's guaranteed irresistible.

Here's how the first episode of Dating in the Dark went down. Three single men. Three single women. They meet for the first time in the dark, all sitting at a conference table. Each single makes first impressions of his or her dating options based on voices, accents (there were a few foreign, Australia and England, in the mix) and question responses.
We're entering another weekend at the heights of wedding season. We have to admit as much as there may be gripes about the logistics of getting to and from a wedding location and budgeting for what to wear and what to give as a gift there are three things we absolutely adore about weddings.
In the cover story for this week's Time magazine, Caitlin Flanagan writes about what she deems the assault of marriage and the loss of the American ideal. Lately, we've been hearing other views—that the tumultuous economic times would inspire searches for committed relationships.
As her sister edged toward her 40th year, Deidre Fishel noticed a panic slowly building and taking hold of her. She feared the dip in libido that comes along with age. Fishel wanted to see if there was real reason to fear, or if there were older women out there bucking the myth, that they were sexless, cranky old things.
Sexiness is not about your dress size. It has nothing to do with your zip code, either. And don't even tilt your head a tad at your hair color, length of bangs or shoes in the mirror. Nope. Your sexual appeal, writes Lori Gottlieb in the July issue of Self magazine, has everything to do with the vibe you're giving off. So brush away any dust that's settled on your sensual side with these, our favorite three tips from Gottlieb and her West Coast pals. Isn't it time you get back in touch with the fox in you?
