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.
Trust your intuition Intuition is based on feelings we have about people, places, situations and things. Our intuition is the most powerful decision-making tool when it comes to love. The answers to matters of the heart reside in our intuition. While there is a time and place to make decisions with your head, letting your intuition guide you in decisions about love yields the truest answers. Paying attention and being aware of how and what you’re feeling in the moment helps you listen to your intuition.
Men are pretty unconscious about what makes them attractive. According to most women, it is not their looks that make them attractive, it is who they are and how they produce in the world. So...this married man goes to work and comes home and goes back to work the next day. At work there is a woman. She is single, attractive, smart, capable, speaks his language and someone who has time to pay attention to him. It starts as an innocent flirtation.

This is the beginning of the affair.
I got whipped. And I liked it. Last week I sauntered up to a brief but fierce call with the high-priestess of straight-talk herself, Erika Lyremark. In case you’re not in the know, when the creater of The Daily Whip offers you an ass-kicking- you show up. Hey, I like a good lesson. Dish it up sister.
You’ve removed any pre-breakup photos from your frames, packed up every picture, re-gifted your teddy bears and torn up your love notes! So why after virtually erasing your ex... are you still struggling to mend your broken heart?

Reality and truth travel a very narrow path. What is the truth? It actually is a perception. There is no proof in the universe that anything is a truth. Many things perceived as truths have been disavowed after more is discovered. So in terms of relationship, where is the line between truth and a lie, or truth and dishonesty? What does it mean to have truth in a relationship?
Stress is a normal and expected part of our lives, but it's not a part we always know how to deal with. We learn how to handle stressful situations by watching our parents and peers as we grow up. If you didn't have positive coping modeled for you, it may make it harder to handle even everyday stressors.
Growing up in a relatively typical Chinese family in Singapore, I received very little sexuality education. Let me give you the context: I did not know that what I had "down there" was called the vulva even though I had the "bits." I did not attempt to pronounce the word penis until I was 26, and as if that by itself was not awkward enough, I was then told that I said it wrong!
