I “suffered” with bouts of depression for most of my teenage years and on and off through my 20’s, 30’s and early 40’s. What I now understand is that my depression was simply anger turned inward. I happened to be angry for all kinds of reasons: because I didn’t get the attention I wanted; I was made to do things I really didn’t want to and made to feel quite powerless; I was told how I “should” be, or that how I was being was “wrong”, which made me feel “not good enough” (which is a big, fat lie).
Dо yоu ever wonder іf thеre are any secrets that you could use tо attract men and fall іn love? Тhere аre somе women who seem tо be ablе to get any man they desire. Most women aren't quite as lucky. Therefore, learning what men really want can drastically change your love life.
Some of the greatest pleasures in life come from food and love. Eating can affect people in more ways than just satisfying their taste buds. You probably didn't know that that food can enhance your love life as long as you choose the right recipes. You can find aphrodisiacs in certain foods that will trigger the senses and ultimately end up enhancing the chemistry with your partner. Cooking for your date is inherently romantic, but consider taking it to the next level by spicing up your ingredients and enhancing both of your moods.
If you are getting ready to go on a first date, or have already had a few that have been a bit of a disaster; you need to know some great first date advice. The time women take to prepare for their first dates, either takes several nerve-wracking days, a few hours before that first date, or minutes before without a second thought.
This is one skill I want you to master: Rejecting online rejection. Learning to accept rejection gracefully, with as few “dings” to your self-esteem as possible, is key to finding your true love. As a dating coach, I’ve found the #1 reason you won’t have success online is giving up too soon. What you perceive as online rejection can exhaust you mentally and the positive attitude you started out with will quickly dwindle. Here are 4 things to know to help you move forward in the online dating world with your self-esteem intact!
by Julie Robinson Our hodge-podge group of friends / acquaintances met for football and dancing (odd combination, I know) at a local lounge rented out for a private party late last fall. Wearing my thigh high leather boots and sequin mini-skirt, I was ready to get down to some serious boogie-ing. The energy felt ripe for a woman who exudes confidence.
Okay, so now that I have your attention ladies, I need to inform you that this article may get a bit, shall we say “racy?” If you’re good with that please, continue reading. If not, well, okay then! In this article I’ll be discussing passion, I’ll be discussing control; I’ll be discussing confidence, erotica, guile, and I’ll be discussing a way to surprise your man and knock his socks off in a way that he will never forget. So what will that accomplish?
You and I both know that you are all that, but right now he only knows that you look great. So what will make him realize that you really are the girl he's been waiting his whole life for and make him want to retire his little black book for good? Here are 6 personality traits that will make just about any guy fall head over heels for you.
Unbeknownst to myself after evaluating a seven year relationship, I realized that a woman can make a man better or make a man worse. Many of the principles that I learned such as sticking it out or finding another way rather than breaking up, all came from examples given by my ex. A young man’s nature is to run from a situation. It is said that women mature faster than men so let’s look at this statement a little more closely: Women mature faster than men. What does it really mean?
All right, girls, we’ve all heard the hype and the “reasons” (AKA excuses) for why we shouldn’t have to be the ones to buy condoms. We’ve heard that it’s a man’s responsibility to protect himself, just like we've heard it’s our responsibility to be on the pill or some other form of birth control.
In case you missed it, Samantha Brick, whose name even sounds made-up, wrote about how "pretty" she is, and how it leads to constant spontaneous gift-giving by men around her. "There are downsides to being pretty," she wrote. "The main one being that other women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks."
As a therapist one of the first things I say to people in a first session is that they can talk however they want with me including swearing (just not at me, please).

We don't always acknowledge our power to shine, to make the most of our lives, to accept and to feel that we truly deserve the best life for ourselves.
Are you excited about the notion of hopping into bed with your new guy? Slowly undressing, eyes locked, savoring each others bodies...lust so intense that you both might explode? Or does the thought of it make you so nervous you want to puke? For many of you—especially if you're dating in your 40's, 50's, or beyond—it's been a while since you stood naked in front of a man.
If you’ve been following the news, you’ve heard of Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who testified before Democratic members of the House of Representatives on why she believed free contraception is essential. She got a beat down of a lashing from Rush Limbaugh who called her a slut and compared her to a prostitute. Rush sent out a public apology after his rant caused him to lose several sponsors for his radio show. This story represents on a large scale the deep wound of shame that so many feel when they speak up. Shame is the feeling that “something is wrong with me.” Shame pops up in three main areas for women: in speaking up and using our voice, in feeling comfortable with our bodies and our sensuality and in the way we mother and raise our children.
