When you first learn about an affair, you feel like a hurricane just passed through your heart. Surviving an affair usually means dealing with awful emotions like grief, anger, frustration and losing most of your self esteem. What you need when you first discover about an affair (right after your heart starts beating again)—is some emergency intervention.
Have you ever wondered why there are quite a few girls who stay single although there is no objective reason for them having difficulty in finding a partner? On the contrary: they are beautiful and smart, and successful… a personification of the perfect spouse and, yet, they are suffering a chain of failures in relationships. And they are really neither picky nor ill-tempered! I have a hypothesis from the series “Convenient theories for me”, which is a bit of comfort to me :)
Fueled by pure primal instinct, our sex drive is a compelling physiological desire for copulation. Unlike most female mammals, women can enjoy immense pleasure from sexual activity. Of course a partner is not necessarily needed to achieve sexual satisfaction and orgasm, however it is always more fun to share erotic experiences with someone you care deeply for. Whether you enjoy solo play in stimulating yourself, or you have assistance from an adoring lover, orgasm can be profoundly powerful and extremely gratifying to a woman.
I have had three miscarriages. Each one more painful then the last. The final one came after 18 months of trying to get pregnant and 6 months before I got pregnant with my now two year old son. I'm 31 and have been married for almost 7 years to my High School Sweetheart, it's been 13 years together. I went away to college and we maintained our relationship through nightly phone conversations. After a year of dating we got engaged so it was a 5 year long engagement. We didn't have sex for the first time until we were engaged for 2 years, six months later I got pregnant.
Cheating statistics in the United States are increasing every year - at an amazing rate. Long lasting marriages or relationships seem to be harder to achieve and even rare. When I first found out about my husband's affair with his coworker, one of the first things I asked myself is: "Am I alone? Am I the only one in my neighborhood that is going through this awful crisis? Do I know anyone else that was cheated by her husband?"
So the nice, not-too-young man I remet this weekend, is either not interested or an expert at pacing himself. What I'm sure I couldn't take yesterday seems like an unattainable goal today. Though our weekend was spent steeped in honesty about past episodes we missed in each other's serial dramas, what I want to tell him is that I could totally take him for who he is, not what he's done or what he thinks I want. Like I explained to him...I've done the hard stuff, I just want someone to share it with, sounds corny but I'm at a loss for words.
Dear Dr. Romance: I am confused, i am in love with this woman but she refuses to remove the dozen roses her ex gave her and are now dead. She says she doesn't want him she just wants me but it's hard to swallow when every time we are in the bedroom there are the dead roses from her ex-boyfriend. Help me understand whats going on.
The latter does not contend to be a manual – just a biased opinion grounded on personal experience I first registered with a dating site about 10 years ago. Since then, sometimes out of boredom, sometimes out of curiosity or just for fun, I have been exploring the secrets and getting the knacks of online communication. Whenever I happen to mention it to someone, I receive a curious and suspicious scrutinising look and the underlying question is: "What is wrong with you", implicitly inferring that I must have some kind of problem.
Dogs: they have it all figured out; and because we are the more intelligent of the two, I suppose we think we have nothing to learn from them. My 9-month-old puppy so obviously and effortlessly puts himself first. I don’t fault him for this and, in fact, I applaud him. Let’s go through a few lessons we should learn from our four-legged friends:
So I sort of met someone this weekend....or rather re-met them. Old friend from high school. He lives out of town but asked to come and see me, but I deferred to travel to see him, and keep my home as a respit for me. After a great weekend, I contemplated the idea of spiffing up the palace for an official visit. I looked around to see what needed addressing besides the obvious cleaning, and in the corner of my room, like an old purse or courtesy hotel toiletries from my last trip is this stack of Christmas ornaments.
