Did you know that eggs are considered to be an aphrodisiac? Not only are they cunic shaped, but they are filled with ingredients that are great for your libido. The aphrodisiac appeal goes back to the days of the Greeks. They ate sparrow eggs because Aphrodite declared it the bird of love. While sparrow eggs are not that common to eat today, all types are eggs are included as aphrodisiacs whether it is caviar or a carton of Farmland eggs right out of the grocery store.
Are you filled with dread thinking of being alone on the biggest "date night" of the year? The pressure of being single on New Year's Eve is even more daunting than being dateless on Valentine's Day.

"We never seem to be able to solve any problems," Kaylee told me in a phone session. "Every time we sit down to solve a problem, we end up fighting. It doesn't really matter what it is about - it always ends up the same. Is this normal? Aren't couples supposed to be able to solve problems?" "Kaylee, who usually initiates problem-solving talks?"
