In this day and age, most of us have friends of the opposite sex, whether they are co-workers, casual acquaintances or close confidantes. The question is: how close is too close when you're in a romantic relationship with someone else? Here are some signs that your so-called friendship may be entering the not-so-gray area of emotional infidelity.
I was mid-air in the middle of a cavern underneath the ground that is bigger than the Statue of Liberty (165 feet tall). Stalactites and stalagmites surrounded me, lit up by strategically placed lights in an otherwise dark space. Hanging by what seemed a thread (but was really a solid harness, ropes, and carabiners), I was sweating in the cool and damp cave.
Here at Lucky Bloke: the Ultimate Condom Subscription Service we know how much size really does matter. Once upon a time there was a darling, young girl named Goldilocks and she…Oh, wait. You’ve already heard her story? Okay, that’s great. It means we can jump forward to this modern day tale featuring Goldilocks (now sexy and sassy, of course), and introducing her very thoughtful and über sexy boyfriend, Goldie-Beard.
This afternoon, I decided to have some vanilla bean ice-cream after my lunch. To start, I had yummy stir-fry with curry and sea salt rice. After, I decided to top it off with two scoops of delicious and refreshing ice-cream. I had eaten my entire lunch, yum! For my dessert I began taking small and very mindful bites. I wanted to enjoy every morsel and not miss out on the creamy, cool flavor on this hot summer day.
I love our house. I loved it from the moment I saw it online. If there was such a thing as “love at first sight,” it would apply to me with this house. It’s the house I’ve been dreaming about my whole life and when we drove up into the driveway for the first time I said to my husband, “I’ll do anything for this house.” It’s not perfect, but it’s perfect for us, and not a day goes by without whispering prayers of gratitude for the blessing of living here.
This guest article from Psych Central was written by Julie de Azevedo Hanks, LCSW When I upgraded to an iPhone 4s I had no idea what to expect from Siri, or how she would actually help manage my busy life. Over the past couple of months I’ve grown to appreciate Siri’s suggestions, assistance, and dry sense of humor. While she occasionally misunderstands my requests, I can’t fault her entirely. I have to take responsibility for my part in our communication breakdowns.
"The attitude you have as a parent is what your kids will learn from more than what you tell them. They don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are." ~Jim Henson, 1936-1990, Creator of The Muppets Half of good parenting is being there for your children and the other half is being there for yourself. What would you have given as you were growing up to have had parents who role-modeled taking loving care of their feelings, their health, their finances, their environment?
A distraught 21-year-old respectful and responsible young Indian woman asks whether it is wrong to go ahead and marry the man she loves even though her parents object. Nita has discussed this with them and their only objection is that this otherwise outstanding young man comes from a different religious background than she does.
In a couple of days it will be my birthday. I have noticed over the years that most people seem to be in one of three camps when it comes to celebrating this day. One birthday camp is all about it! Lets celebrate in any and all ways possible. Another camp is pretty nonchalant. They go about their day as usual with a few special touches to mark the occasion. Yet another camp wants nothing to do with noting the day for themselves. As anyone who knows me well, or even casually, will tell you, I fall very firmly in birthday camp number one!
A Trip Down Memory Lane Memorial Day is traditionally a day to honor those who gave their lives in service of our country. This is not something I was bound to forget living in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, as I did for most of my adult life. In Gettysburg we pulled out all the stops to make this holiday a special occasion.
