So you may have heard by now that Ashlee Simpson Wentz and Pete Wentz are on the journey towards divorce. According to sources, “they’ve just grown apart.” For you regular readers, you know that I rarely comment on celeb love lives or lack thereof, but I thought this particular dissolution bore a little insight and discussion.
What is it about bumping into your ex that turns you into a bumbling fool? How can someone you no longer love cause you such emotional havoc? I'm out shopping with a girlfriend, and we're wandering around the mall, having a great time, when suddenly she grabs my arm, shoves me in front of her and says, "Don't move. Hide me. He's coming right at us." "Who?" I ask, immediately panicked. I look around. I'm expecting a gun-toting madman, but all I see is this somewhat distracted fellow trying to balance his packages.
What He's Really Looking For In A Woman By Christian Carter Author of best-selling eBook Catch Him & Keep Him and free newsletter Are you the kind of woman a great guy is attracted to and wants to have a deep, connected relationship with? Just what is it that makes a man see you as someone he thinks of as relationship material rather than something casual?
By Carol Allen Have you ever had a man not GET you? Isn't that just THE WORST? Especially when it's a man you thought really loved you. When a man doesn't get you, he questions or criticizes something fundamental about you - making you feel like it's wrong and that you should change it. But changing that thing would be as though you were changing something as much a part of you as your height, or race, or ancestry.
Where in your life are you holding yourself back because you think: • Someone will laugh at you • You might look stupid • You may make a mistake • You’re not 100% sure how to do something • You think it may not turn out a certain way
They say Italians do everything better: style, fashion, food, art, fun and yes, SEX. We can generalize all we want, but somewhere within lies the truth. So what is their secret? Why do they do it better? The secret ingredient is Confidence. Italian men are confident and self-assured. They dress the part, they look the part, they act the part and they also smell the part (I have to tell you, a good smelling man can flip the switch, if you know what I mean!). They walk out the door with “I am the MAN!” written on their forehead and just make it happen.
Valentine’s Day is closing in on all of us, and many of us are beginning to think about how to score big points with our sweethearts. How can men and women score big over Valentine’s Day? What if we knew how the opposite sex keeps score? What we may not know is the way men and women score points with the opposite sex is NOT the same. We are from two different planets, Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus. From the ways we communicate to the ways we reduce our stress, we do it differently.
Valentine's Day is all about love. On this one day, we focus on love and romance above all else. But it has become another vehicle for big business to push their products upon us. Beautiful roses or an assortment of seasonal flowers are often a high priority. However, no matter how beautiful, flowers don't last - unless we buy silk flowers. We are encouraged to buy chocolates, even though so many of us are attempting to diet and lose those extra pounds to look our best.
If you have any sense at all, you are currently ordering Valentine’s Day flowers for the woman you are dating or married to. Theoretically, Valentine’s Day is about proclaiming the love you have for the woman in your life; she’ll appreciate your token or gesture of love in any setting, whether you hand her flowers in the privacy of your house, take her out to a romantic dinner, or just whisper “I love you” in her ear when you arrive home from work. But take it from me. Want to really score brownie points this V-day?
