By Rabbi Arnie Singer for GalTime.com Breaking up is hard to do -- that's an understatement. But as terrible as it is, breaking up is a part of dating and relationships. It's something that everyone experiences at some point, so it's important to know how to do the deed in the best and most sensitive way possible. No two relationships or people are the same, but here are five general tips:
Just as we all start resolving to lose, we’re hit with the news that it may never work. If you’ve been overweight for a while, if you’ve dieted only to keep regaining, the problem may well exceed willpower. In this season of “20 Lbs in 20 Days!” other headlines ask “Do You Have to be Superhuman to Lose Weight?” Or, “Are We Programmed to Pack on Pounds?” Unpopular questions, for sure, but ones to which science increasingly answers “probably”.
You’ve just joined that Online Dating Site you promised in your New Year’s Resolutions, huh? You’re in your Match.com account, and you are surfing through all of the yummy and not so yummy profiles. All of a sudden... WINK! Score! Some gorgeous guy just sent you a wink - but you don’t know yet if he is of the frog or toad variety. Whoa there. Don’t do anything hasty. As cute as he may be, looks can be deceiving.
You’ve found out your husband is having an affair. You’re shocked, angry and sad that betrayed you. You don’t want to leave him but you can’t stay with him while he’s with someone else. All you want is for him to stop having the affair so you can figure out if there’s any hope for the marriage.
After dating for several months, Adam and Theresa realized they had fallen in love. Adam adored Theresa’s passion, honesty and independence. Theresa never thought she would find a man so affectionate, funny and articulate. Sounds like a match made in heaven, right? But along with Adam came 2 children and Theresa added 2 more. In their haze of love, they assumed their children would happily live together, since they were so much alike and loved each other so much.
Riding on top doesn’t mean crushing a man with all your weight. If it did, even a 110 pounds woman would be too heavy for most men to handle. Think about what you really do in the saddle. Don’t you use your thighs and, sometimes, your outstretched arms, to support you while your hips bob up and down or gyrate to an inner rhythm? The trick is doing enough strength training outside the bedroom to manage the workout that your legs get during sex.
For being well known as a woman with considerable psychic gifts, I sure turned a blind eye when it came to picking men. My first relationships were filled with drama and trauma, believe me I kissed way too many frogs, had way too many blind dates and the singles parties…. Don’t you love to hate singles parties? I had no trouble attracting men. My dark and exotic looks always got me noticed. But no matter how hot the guy, once he found out I was “psychic” or “clairvoyant” he was out the door.
The Holiday’s may be over but, if you’re single, you might still be feeling the sting after being backed into a corner at family gatherings and forced to answer the question; “Why are you still single?” Ouch! Friends, family and co-workers have no idea their committing a major social faux pas and how uncomfortable it makes you feel. So today, I’m sharing insights and tips for both those asking this question and those on the receiving end.
The holiday season has come and gone. This year was a particular wonderful time for me. I spent many days entertaining people that are most special to me…it was my way to express love and appreciation towards them. During this vacation period, I got into my body, my mind and spirit even more. I allowed each encounter to be a full body experience. Now, I know this sounds sexual…but I mean it in a sensual manner. So what the heck am I trying to say?
Before I tell you how to sign up for these great benefits, I really have to get something off my chest. Ok, here it goes… I once met a friend who thoroughly enjoyed ringing the Salvation Army bell each holiday season. My response was, “why would you spend your time ringing a bell for free when you could be out having fun?” I admit, standing around ringing a bell did not sound like a fun time, but neither did any “volunteer” activity when I was in my 20’s. If I did not receive a pay check for my time, why would I want to d
