In a day where the Internet has replaced dating, and texts are sent far more often than flowers, it’s no surprise that men and women alike have begun to re-evaluate what they need out of a relationship. In the recently released movie No Strings Attached, Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman weave their way through a “Friends With Benefits” (FWB) relationship, all the while attempting to stay uncommitted and unattached.
Statistics show that many people are getting married later in life, and many are questioning whether they want to get married at all. If you’re a twenty or thirty-something who has put your climb up the corporate ladder (in Louboutin heels, of course) or achieving your personal dreams, ahead of the traditional 3-step plan—get married, get pregnant, and live happily ever after (or get divorced), you will see married couples with kids or newlyweds with babies on the way, everywhere you look.
Sex is beautiful! Unfortunately, it is so badly misrepresented and used by porn. It was given to us as a gift! Wildly enough, sex is known to greatly improve your health, looks, and mood. Health-wise, did you know that men who orgasm 3 times a week and more lower their chances of stroke and heart attack by as much as 50 percent? Crazy huh? Looks-wise, sex can shave up to 4 years off of your physical appearance, depending on your age. Sexual intercourse also can improve your mood. It increases your dopamine because of a chemical in the semen.
By Elizabeth Hanlin of We Love Dates Right now, it seems the internet is a buzz with the news of Jesse James and Kat Von D's engagement. I was fairly surprised at the intense debate their announcement fueled, but then I got to thinking about second chances and leaving the past in the past.

It is safe to say that I have an addictive personality. I've struggled with several different types of addiction: drugs, alcohol, shopping, food etc. I'm pretty much by the books with a pretty stereotypical upbringing that festers addictive situations. Today marks my 3rd week of no smoking and I am so proud of myself. The cravings have significantly died down. I'm also working to kick my addiction to junk food and sweets. My body is really starting to feel lighter and my body feels less toxic (minus the 24 hour flu I had yesterday). Mentally, I feel better too.
Relationships are fragile, one wrong word, one stupid argument or one thoughtless comment might break the beautiful world built, nurtured and cherished for days, months and years in a moment. Most of the time, relationship problems occur because they were too careless, too ignorant or too busy to understand what the other wants or cares for. If you are finding your relationship crumbling like a pack of cards, here are a few things that might be causing the problem.
I can understand feeling uncomfortable about having your fiancé's old wedding photos in your home, but if it's really that big of a big deal, a simple request to move them elsewhere — his parents' home, for example, or a storage unit — would have sufficed. To deface them behind his back because you simply can't handle their harmless presence in your closet says a lot about your character and maturity, and I wonder if you're prepared for the challenges you'll inevitably face as a married woman — challenges that far surpass dealing with a few photos of an ex.
