As an online dating expert and matchmaker, I believe that love and relationships can be found online and off. In the summertime, it may be easier for singles to head to the beach or go to house parties to find a plus one. But once the cool weather sets in and holiday season kicks up, it can be harder to find spare time due to schedules, extracurricular activities, work and a little thing called sleep. Dating apps are a great way to still maintain a social life while trying to manage your daily life.
The sad truth of the matter is this—human beings get sick from time to time. No great revelation here, but when your doctor or the doctor of your spouse or lover tells you that "surgery is required" it can be traumatic—to both of you! It can definitely ruin your day. When we get married we promise to love and cherish each other "until death do us part." Those are the traditional marriage vows most all of us recite when we get married.
We had a wonderful interview this past week in Southern California with a couple who had a marriage based on a 17-year, cross-continent NON-relationship! And what a wonderful story it was. Why 17 years you ask? What is this NON-relationship all about? Here is the bottom line. Steve went to high school with Sherrie. Their high school was in the state of Maryland. They dated steadily during their sophomore and junior years.
As love and marriage experts, our favorite research question for a woman whose marriage has failed is : Why do you think your marriage failed? The answer we often get from our female respondents is this, "I thought I could fix him." We wish she had asked us about this issue before she decided she could change him into "Mr. Right."
Earlier this week, we posted an interview with John Gray, whose newest book, "Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business," examines how men and women could better understand each other in the workplace. Here are the highlights.
John Gray and Barbara Annis' newest book, "Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business," addresses the false assumptions and miscommunication between men and women, both in the workplace and at home.
Studies have proven that there are four behaviors that (when avoided) greatly improve your chances of avoiding divorce.
Without a general agreement between the two of you about core values, what issues that you care deeply about and how you want to live your lives together as a couple, your chances of being happily married for a lifetime are not good. As love and marriage experts, we know that you simply cannot marry a man who doesn't share your values.
With our fast paced society and the extreme demands hitting us from every side, more and more couples find negativity taking over their marriage. An abrupt injection of positivity into your relationship is the only way to change the environment before it is too late.
St. Patrick's Day is notorious for green beer, corned beef and hash and cabbage. A mix between New Year's Eve indulgence and Mardi Gras fun, St. Patty's (or St. Paddy's) Day is more known for parties and festivities rather than for its cultural and Christian origins. You don't need to wait to find a four leaf clover to meet someone. Let the lucky leprechaun help you find love this festive weekend. Put on your best shade of green and join in on the fun. It's the one time of the year we are all Irish!
It's safe to say that, for the most part, everyone has the same general fear when it comes to online dating. The biggest concern is usually if the person on the other side of the Internet will match their profile. Thankfully in this day and age, technology has made it a little bit easier for you to help ensure you are meeting is actually the person in the picture.
The truth is you never know and in some cases you never know the answers to the many “why” questions that are associated with online dating.

So when someone never texts you but will always respond when you text, when someone just randomly stops responding after weeks of great conversation, and when someone blows off your plans three or four times… You si
When two people start dating, it's common practice for one person to pay for the date. Traditionally, it has been the man who pays but modern times now sees a trend of women paying for dates or helping to offset the cost of a night out on the town. Because of financial times, sometimes dating can become more of a burden than a blessing. Paying for dinner, drinks and a movie can cost upwards of $100 or more. If you are going out every weekend, your budget has now increased by almost $500 for the month.
"If the head and the body are to be well, you must begin by curing the soul."

The couples we have interviewed around the world who have great marriages know the importance of being healthy in BOTH a physical AND mental sense. Don’t shortchange your relationship by thinking otherwise.
