When In A Relationship Do You Need To Disclose Everything?

When we fall in love, everything seems so simple. We want to be with someone and that someone wants to be with you too. But unfortunately, the rest of life isn't as simple as all that. We're entangled in other committments whether it be our jobs, our kids and other family matters. So at what point do you owe it to a new partner to give full disclosure of your past?

Declare a New State of Independence for Yourself

As I rule, I try to resist the pressure to write articles with holiday themes. It just feels a bit cliché and there are so many of them running rampant out there in cyberspace. Sometimes I feel the spirit that lies within our holidays gets lost within the onslaught of messages.

7 Tips For Better Oral Sex!

Don't you think it's kind of funny how we expect ourselves and our partners to just magically “know” where our sexual sweet spots are? Especially because chances are, no one has ever taught us about our own "pleasure anatomy," much less how to communicate, stimulate, and bring pleasure to others.

We all know we should spend more quality time talking to our partners, but knowing how to have heart-to-heart talks in the busy-ness of everyday life is easier said than done.

The One Thing That Will Save A 'Hopeless' Relationship

I help my clients see beneath the "fog of war" and get down to what's real — that's where the solution can be found. When two people constantly dig in and fortify their positions, the conflict only blinds both partners and prolongs the battle. That is, until one partner steps up.

Communication is the key to a woman's heart.

Want to know how to suck the life out of a woman? Stop communicating with her.  Stop returning her phone calls, or her text messages. Or answering the phone.  Just stop talking to her.  But don’t tell her why. And then watch her shrivel into someone you don’t recognize.

Oh, The Stories We Tell Ourselves!

It’s just amazing at how good we are at the stories we tell ourselves.  Making up stories happens so fast that we don’t even realize what champions we have become at story-telling!

5 Steps To Resolving Conflicts In Intimate Relationships

It may seem obvious to some, but not all, that the best relationships are ones born out of trust and vulnerability.  Each partner approaches one another as an equal.
