This series is designed to address personal boundaries and help you to identify those that you or someone you know may be having some difficulties with. By identifying boundaries and knowing when they get crossed, we stand a greater chance of protecting ourselves and gaining more fulfilling relationships. Sometimes we focus on meeting someone else’s needs and end up sacrificing our own. By putting limits in place you will find that not only do you feel healthier, but you have also surrounded yourself with others who feel the same!

The caption read, “Hold that thought a second. I want to pull over and ask for directions.” I didn’t stop clicking. The next file was a photo of a man vacuuming.

As relationships become more egalitarian, author Simon Dumenco writes, some men feel more pressured to seek sex on the sly to prove to themselves testosterone still courses through their muscles as they empty the Diaper Genie. If a boyfriend or husband acts immature or selfish, is he just acting out of frustration? We beg to disagree: asshole doesn't mean the same thing as masculine. We think we know which show to blame for this confusion: Mad Men, which is about Madison Avenue advertising men in 1960's America.
