Post-divorce is no time to be thinking with your heart. Yep, your heart is bruised and battered and you feel disillusioned by everything that's unfolded. Perhaps you feel like you were run over by a truck. Still, you have to think with your head.
That vulture came into your life and stole your man. You knew she wanted him the moment she layed her eyes on him. What could you do? You thought you could trust your man, right? That he would never leave you for her and break the special bond that you shared, but that just didn't seem to happen. Now, you sit wondering what happened - your relationship has come to an end and it's all because of that snake who slithered her way into your man's pants.
When you eat or drink, do you often find it difficult if not impossible to stop eating or drinking when you’ve had enough, even when you’re full? You’re definitely not alone…countless people have just the same problem leaving a few chips or cookies in a bag, leaving soda in a can, or leaving unfinished food like pasta, steak, or whatever on a plate. I know I once did, too. A friend once asked me “How can you throw that away?” after I ate only half of a small ice cream cone? I simply told her that after years of dieting and deprivation (in my late teens and early twenties), I have learned to have what I like, savor and enjoy it, and stop when I’m comfortable..I don’t need to eat the whole thing.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word Sadomasochism also affectionately known as S&M? My mind immediately does to Madonna’s video hot video “Erotica”. I can still hear her purr “erotic, erotic, put your hands all over my body” in my mind. I will never forget seeing Madonna in the black mask wearing a tight black dress looking ready to dominate. Then there were the erotic visuals in the video of people chained up, licking each other, kissing, and other titillating positions.
The other day I was talking with a woman I know fairly well (let's call her Mary), and asked her what has kept her 25 year marriage going strong. Mary replied that she was a bit embarrassed to tell me this, but that she and her husband practice something they call night on-night off in which they have sex on the nights on, but not on the nights off.
For once, my teenage daughter decided to talk to me. We were driving home from school and she said, "Dad, I have something to tell you." Here it comes, I thought — either some overwrought teenage drama or a parent's worst nightmare is about to escape my precious firstborn's lips. With a quavering voice she delivered the punch: "Jackie and I are dating."
Have you ever met a guy online or in person and thought wow, he could be the one. That wonderful feeling of excitement and possibility starts to grow inside of you and start to envision all the things you have been longing for might actually be at your doorstep, holidays together, what kind of father he might be or what vacations you might take. But wait as your fantasy grows you notice so does that nagging voice in your head and that the excitement gives way to fear and doubt.
