Are These Young Girls Just Looking For a Father Figure?

A common judgment of women-younger partners in age gap relationships is that they are looking for a father figure, and have "daddy issues". This opinion, among others outlined in Arnold and Banks (2001) study shows that there is a common bias that age gap relationships are not socially acceptable. It has been shown that these relationships are highly marginalized, and partners in them feel that they do not receive support from family and friends; much less society.

My Crush, His Girlfriend & The Massage

Ok, I have had a crush on  my friend Mark for sometime and knew of his new girlfriend. Yet I still wanted to jump his bones. When told me about how bad she treated him I wondered why was he with her.

Marriage: When You Least Expect It

Marriage: When You Least Expect It

You are perfect just the way you are. Stop preparing for marriage and know you are perfect. You don’t need to do anything. You just need to be you. It’s not about the size of your thighs or your bank account. You are perfect just the way you are.

Patience Is a Virtue

Patience Is a Virtue

Patience is something I never thought I would have, but now with motherhood I realize that just maybe patience has been there all along and I just never saw it or drew upon it. As a child I can remember my parents often reminding me to be patient, to wait, to be considerate while another has his turn, and to trust my turn will be soon enough. They were right is so many ways that it is sometimes difficult to comprehend.

How to Lose Virginity - Dangerous myths

Hi guys, As I’ve been working on my new book I discovered that many of you start your sexual life totally unprepared.

He giggled when I talked dirty to him in bed!

I ran into an old yet very young  ex lover over the weekend. Although we have maintained a friendly attitude towards one another I couldn't  help but be  reminded of how he giggled when I talked dirty to him in bed the last time we were together. I had never had anyone giggle before. I hadn't told a joke, but merely stated in not so many words how good he was making my body feel and what I wanted him to do . If anything it should have intensified the sex. After that I just was not into him anymore  because I saw him as immature.
