When you meet a new man you like, it’s tempting to think you need to actively do something to show him why he should be attracted to you and interested in you. You might think you need to show him what a great cook you are by making him a meal or helping him with a problem so that he sees that you’d make a good partner.

For Jane, marriage was great once. When she was in her 20’s and even early 30’s it felt romantic and satisfying doing all the domestic things together, having kids, creating a home. Then one day she realized that 15 years of marriage to Robert had was stifling her. She didn’t know who she really was any more, except somebody else’s wife and mother. “Who am I? How do I find myself? I’m just in my forties, but my life feels over” she complained.
Find out your deep desire for finding a partner so you can avoid making a poor choice in love. Some women look at being single as something to fix. After age 25 and your friends all start to marry, the process of filling that perceived hole in your life begins. Family, friends and co-workers ask if you are dating someone and it feels like something is wrong if you are not in a relationship. You get drawn into the need to find a man that you find it silly to answer the question, “Why do you want love?”
Elizabeth Taylor, Love, Marriage and Life Married three times and widowed by the time she was 26, no one can deny that Elizabeth Taylor led a complicated life when it came to romance.

When it comes to dating there are certain number of women who feel that because they are a good catch the relationship gods are being cruel to them.

This guest article from Psych Central was written by associate editor, Therese J. Borchard. PBS/This Emotional Life is hosting a webinar in two weeks about the internet’s impact on relationships and marriage, in particular. As a panelist on the webinar, I wanted to explore this issue a bit so I can offer you my two cents.
Last week I found myself having to swallow some of my own medicine. I didn’t like it, but it reminded me how hard it is to manage oneself. I’d gotten into a major disagreement with my trainer, a man I’ve been friends with for at least 10 years. I really like him. It’s always been a smooth relationship between us, so the fight took me by surprise. Him, too, I’m sure. Why we fought doesn’t really matter, but we really didn’t speak for about a week and there was a lot of tension between us.
It's time to start feeling good in order to maintain a healthy state of mind that is attractive to love. In today's world, very little value is given to the feelings we experience on a daily basis. We are bombarded by images of war, starvation, natural disasters, the disappearance of species, melting icecaps, global warming...and I ask you, how much can any of us stand before we start shutting down emotionally to all this horror? Shutting down and living in denial wreaks havoc on our hearts, and that leads to romantic disconnect, for sure!
