Statistics show that the average family spends $369 per day on lodging, gas, food and fun on a vacation. Do we go simple or extravagant, kick back or active??? And let’s face it, each option has a price tag associated with it. Deciding what kind of vacation to go on can be confusing, frustrating and sometimes cause an argument between you and your loved one.
The first 10 minutes of a date often determine whether a second date is even going to happen. And let's face it: second dates are not the norm for many. That was definitely my story until I learned about (what I now call) "Date Waste." Date waste is when a date is a drag but has little to do with whether you're a potential match. It's a drag simply because neither of you set the date up to succeed. These aren't the dates with jerks that you can't wait to end. They're the ones that are just a little boring, lack sparks, or just go nowhere.
By now, most men have heard of the G-spot, but have never attempted to locate it, let alone attempt to heal it. Likewise, many women are equally ignorant of its location and its potential for being healed. It is quite difficult for a woman to access her own G-spot without the help of a friend.

When this happens, frustration builds and we can spiral into mental abyss. But, by incorporating little things into your routine, you can increase your happiness factor. So, make "YOU" a priority and use the tips below to improve your overall sense of happiness and wellbeing.
Lately, I’ve gotten so many anguished questions from people who are being criticized and rejected by family for making relationship choices the families don’t like, usually for cultural or religious reasons, that I changed my mind about what I was going to write this month.
Online dating is frustrating to say the least. I hear from many of my clients that it's making them crazy. But of all the Internet dating mistakes you can make, there is one that I see over and over again. Here's an example of an email I received from a client: Virginia, I have been online dating for 3 years on 4 different sites, and I can't get a date!
