Are You A Fight Thief?!

I see a lot of couples and have -to my knowledge- finally self termed “Fight Thief.” Here’s the scenario: Partner A brings up a conflict they would like to discuss.

50 Shades Of Grey: Do You Like It Rough?

I just saw a video clip from The View, during which Barbara Walters asked her co-hosts if they like it rough. As in do they like their sex rough.

Diabetes & Gut Health

Did you know that 25.8 million children and adults in the US have diabetes? That is 8.3% of the population. WOW! That's a lot of people.

What Is A Despicable Mom?

Subtitle: Women who abuse their power to give future baby mama’s a bad name. There is nothing worse in this world than a mother who uses the children against the father in a relationship. If you are going to rank sins against men in this world, this act would be right up there with the biblical Eve’s sin committed in the Garden of Eden against God.

I am sure by now you have heard the report that was on Good Morning America (GMA) about a new weight loss procedure, known as the K-E diet, which has become increasingly popular with brides, so they can be skinny for their special day. This procedure promises to shed 20 pounds in 10 days.

3 Signs You're Not Over Your Ex

When a relationship ends, it's natural to miss certain things about your ex.  At one point in time, you loved them (or at least really liked them) and didn't think there was anyone else in the world you'd rather be with.  But somehow along the way, things changed and you've parted ways.  There's a difference between missing certain qualities about your ex-the way he filled your car up with gas or someone to cuddle with for example and flatout holding on to them, hoping for a reconciliation.  Here are three ways to tell if you're not over your e
