Telling your partner you are unhappy with your sex life could be one of the most difficult conversations you may ever have to discuss with your significant other. You may have even git plenty of thought, opting to remain silence. Afterall building a successful sexual foundation requires work, just like maintaining a job. Developing key strategies such as, communication, consistency, commitment and compromise could be a great start to regaining your intimate connection.
Let’s take a look at the emotions and relating. This will be a five part article series with each article taking a deeper examination into each of the primary emotions and their fixed counterparts. Enjoy! In my recent article on communication I assert that the problem is not with communicating but rather with relating. There are five core emotions I am most interested in: Grief/sadness, fear, anger, love, and envy.
You’re on the couch and he’s in the bed, but neither of you is sleeping. After the heated argument over your summer vacation destination, he stomped angrily upstairs and you sit sobbing on the couch. He wants to go to camping with tents and backpacks and you want to stay at a resort by the ocean.
Challenged with how to respond when a man does something that ticks you off? Are you an independent, smart single woman who is dating and looking for love? If so, you've likely been challenged with how to respond when a man does something that ticks you off. What are realistic expectations? What should you tolerate? I get asked this question in many forms. It can be confusing. On the one hand, you have a strong desire to be liked and finally find The One. On the other hand, you are a confident woman who doesn't want to put up with nonsense or be a pushover.
Most men know that women sometimes experience pain during sex. But many women don’t know that men can experience pain during sex, too. And I don’t just mean the emotional pain of not getting an erection or of climaxing quickly. A small number of men experience pain during sex for serious reasons, ranging from syphilis to an infection in the prostate or urethra. It’s a rare guy who will proceed with sex when it brings that kind of misery. But other reasons that sex can hurt are far more common, even if they’re not quite so serious.
You might be suprised how much you can help your relationship in just fifteen minutes. Maybe it would sound better in a Cockney accent, a la the Geico Gecko. Fifteen minutes could add fifteen or more years to your marriage. However, there is a catch. Ask a typical group of couples what they feel would help their marriages and the usual response is communication. Pry further as to what communication means to them and answers vary: “Having any communication would be a nice change.” “Really listening to each other.” (Usually this translates, “That jerk doesn’t hear a word I say.”)
The dynamics of a great kiss are multi-layered and complex “A kiss can be a comma, a question mark or an exclamation point. That’s basic spelling that every woman ought to know.” -Jeanne Bourgeois If ever there was a communication mechanism that predicted the destiny and longevity of a romantic interlude, it is the kiss. What we say with our kisses, as well as how they are received and understood is the basis for all the sexual conversations that they initiate.
Guys get a bad rap when it comes to feelings. Basically, people think we don't have them, don't want to share them, and don't want to listen to them, either. But that's not true.
