Many have their own personal laundry list of qualities for the "ideal mate." Some of the items on the laundry list might include: loyal, kind, attractive, generous or successful. The technical term for meeting our laundry list is called the self-ideal-perception consistency. But what happens when our date does not meet all of the requirements on our laundry list? Can we change him to meet our expectations? Does he meet enough of our laundry list to qualify to be a cookie mate?
5 Tips for Family Resilience - Bounce Back From Adversity © Judy Helm Wright http://www.judyhwright Family resilience is the ability to bounce back from the adversities and bad luck that befall us. No family or individual is immune from misfortune and tragedy. Daily life is filled with challenges to individual members of the family and sometimes to the family unit itself.
The only sexuality education I received in secondary school (or high school in the U.S.) was in the form of annual school talks presented by pharmaceutical companies promoting sanitary pads or tampons (depending where they were from). The boys got to first jeer at us, as they went out to play in the sun. We, the young ladies, had the burden of listening to instruction on menstruation and the need to clean up after ourselves.
Count the Compliments Its nearly Valentines Day, which means the season of love is upon us!

Many people identify approaching a potential partner as still being one of their biggest fears! In this article, I've decided to use my experience of getting over stage fright, to help you boost your confidence to approach that special person who’s caught your eye! I will never forget the first time I sang in public. I was put in a position where I was performing in front of an audience of about 120 people.
At the risk of sounding like I’m going back to caveman times, the secret of a true sizzler is when a man is in his masculine and a woman is in her feminine (your "core energy"). Relationships are like batteries....if you put them into a TV remote control the wrong way around, they are NOT going to work. They need that spark! For the men, this means not being afraid of taking charge and taking care of your lady. For the ladies, don't be afraid of using your femininity; we all know how to do it, but don't do it often enough.
If three men who are best friends can't get along well for a mere forty-eight hours cooped up together, what chance do men and women have who are trying to be together, build a life together, and love one another unconditionally forever? You see, as men and powerful, confident men at that, we clean up very quickly when we have a disagreement and move on to more important things.
Joy and success in relationships are built on trust. Without trust, what’s really left? Certainly not fulfilling sex! Who and what you trust will have a great impact on the results of your intimate relationship and life. You can look at the quality of trust in your life from four different perspectives: How well you trust in your divine source, how well you trust yourself, how well others trust you, and how well and wisely you trust others.
Trust your intuition Intuition is based on feelings we have about people, places, situations and things. Our intuition is the most powerful decision-making tool when it comes to love. The answers to matters of the heart reside in our intuition. While there is a time and place to make decisions with your head, letting your intuition guide you in decisions about love yields the truest answers. Paying attention and being aware of how and what you’re feeling in the moment helps you listen to your intuition.
Men are pretty unconscious about what makes them attractive. According to most women, it is not their looks that make them attractive, it is who they are and how they produce in the world. So...this married man goes to work and comes home and goes back to work the next day. At work there is a woman. She is single, attractive, smart, capable, speaks his language and someone who has time to pay attention to him. It starts as an innocent flirtation. What goes through his mind is something like "Let's see if I still have it!", so he starts flirting just to see what happens. Not a surprise, she responds by flirting back. This is the beginning of the affair.
