Maybe it's something in the water on the set of Two and a Half Men. On the heels of Ashton Kutcher stepping in to take over after Charlie Sheen left the show, news emerges that Ashton may have cheated on his wife Demi Moore (http://bit.ly/oN7VFH). Affairs are all-to-common with the rich, famous and powerful. Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil says if rumors of the affair are true, it's likely those three things that helped push Ashton to that decision. "With power comes a perceived need for risk-taking, and with more risk-taking comes even greater feelings of power.
When a man notices a beautiful woman he has a choice of how he directs the energy in his body. He can feel desire in his mind or in his genitals. He can make a mental judgment or critique of her looks or how she puts her energy out. He can go through a quick mental exercise of assessing the likelihood of interacting with her in various ways and his chances with her. He can perhaps judge himself for his lustful thoughts.
The recent statistics from the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) has reported that about one-third (33.8%) of U.S. adults are obese. That number rises every day, and keeping up with it is more difficult than keeping up with your stocks. I work with the finest bariatric surgeons in the U.S. They are dedicated to helping their patients lose weight in an effort to thwart diseases, and minimize current disease progression. I also run several 12-step food addiction groups in the city of Houston and online in many cities. I talk to morbidly obese patients everyday. I teach them, counsel them, eat with them, and spend endless hours reading their journals. These patients have a story to tell, but we aren’t listening and we continue asking the wrong questions.
It seems that all of us want to compare the sexes at some level, especially when it comes to break ups. Maybe it is our never-ending quest to get this thing called love figured out. After years of talking to hundreds of men and woman one thing has definitely appeared as a pattern when it comes to the way men vs. women handle a break up. We don’t get it!
Couples in long-term relationships often take each other for granted. Although our partners mean the world to us, sometimes we can get bogged down in the everyday pressures of life and we unknowingly ignore their sexy side. How can someone we once thought to be the sexiest person walking on the face of the earth slowly turn into more of a friend than a lover? Actually, this stage of a relationship is normal.
When I set out on a quest (for my book, 'Are All Guys Assholes?') to prove that guys aren't actually as bad as we assume, I thought women would embrace the message as good news. "Guys actually want relationships and care about more than just sex? That's awesome!" Instead, many of them have wanted fight me on it. I've been met with an army of "evidence" seemingly suggesting that my own research is wrong, and that the stereotype we have about men being commitment-phobic, sex-fiends is firmly rooted in scientific fact. The problem is, many of these so-called facts have been used to jump to faulty conclusions.
Secrecy and privacy are different, and understanding these differences may be crucial in your relationship. For instance, what if you think that talking to a friend of the opposite sex on the phone or having lunch together is simply a part of your private life and doesn’t need to be shared with your spouse? You are not purposely keeping it from them, but what if they find out? Will they feel that you were keeping the information from them?
"It's over, it's done and we won't ever talk about this again." Those were the words of my boyfriend when we walked out of the state hospital where my abortion happened. Well, one thing for sure...we never did talk about that.
Ah, the sex-and-run. For some, it's like being the victim of a crime. Like the hit-and-run, the sex-and-run catches you totally off guard. It often involves alcohol or drug use by one or both parties. It usually happens after dark and much more quickly than you'd ever imagine. One minute you are talking, ignoring anything but the moment, guard down. The next, it's like something creeps up on a girl like The Situation on 'The Jersey Shore.'
