Over the years I have had so many different kids of friendships. When we're kids we share toys and have fun sleepovers. As adults we can be friends first and trying dating second... oops, that doesn't really work now does it? Then there's the notion of becoming a couple and hopefully friends too, ouch!
Today’s couple building assignment is to snuggle on the couch for an evening and talk, without turning the TV on. This positive interaction will especially fill the love tank of anyone who has “Quality Time” as a primary Love Language. When children enter the picture, it’s very easy for the couple relationship to morph into a sort of business partnership.
Many have their own personal laundry list of qualities for the "ideal mate." Some of the items on the laundry list might include: loyal, kind, attractive, generous or successful. The technical term for meeting our laundry list is called the self-ideal-perception consistency. But what happens when our date does not meet all of the requirements on our laundry list? Can we change him to meet our expectations? Does he meet enough of our laundry list to qualify to be a cookie mate?
5 Tips for Family Resilience - Bounce Back From Adversity © Judy Helm Wright http://www.judyhwright Family resilience is the ability to bounce back from the adversities and bad luck that befall us. No family or individual is immune from misfortune and tragedy. Daily life is filled with challenges to individual members of the family and sometimes to the family unit itself.
The only sexuality education I received in secondary school (or high school in the U.S.) was in the form of annual school talks presented by pharmaceutical companies promoting sanitary pads or tampons (depending where they were from). The boys got to first jeer at us, as they went out to play in the sun. We, the young ladies, had the burden of listening to instruction on menstruation and the need to clean up after ourselves.

Many people identify approaching a potential partner as still being one of their biggest fears! In this article, I've decided to use my experience of getting over stage fright, to help you boost your confidence to approach that special person who’s caught your eye! I will never forget the first time I sang in public. I was put in a position where I was performing in front of an audience of about 120 people.
At the risk of sounding like I’m going back to caveman times, the secret of a true sizzler is when a man is in his masculine and a woman is in her feminine (your "core energy"). Relationships are like batteries....if you put them into a TV remote control the wrong way around, they are NOT going to work. They need that spark! For the men, this means not being afraid of taking charge and taking care of your lady. For the ladies, don't be afraid of using your femininity; we all know how to do it, but don't do it often enough.
If three men who are best friends can't get along well for a mere forty-eight hours cooped up together, what chance do men and women have who are trying to be together, build a life together, and love one another unconditionally forever? You see, as men and powerful, confident men at that, we clean up very quickly when we have a disagreement and move on to more important things.
Joy and success in relationships are built on trust. Without trust, what’s really left? Certainly not fulfilling sex! Who and what you trust will have a great impact on the results of your intimate relationship and life. You can look at the quality of trust in your life from four different perspectives: How well you trust in your divine source, how well you trust yourself, how well others trust you, and how well and wisely you trust others.
