During my many years of counseling couples, I have frequently worked with the sexual problems that often occur in committed relationships. The most common complaint from men regarding sex is frequency, and the most common complaint from woman is lack of emotional intimacy. There is a very good reason why these are the most common complaints - men and women are very different when it comes to sex!
There are many obstacles in dating as a single person over 40. Yet, many of my clients initially resist trying online dating for fear of the unknown. As I see it, you can continue the path of least resistance (meaning less potential partners), or you can embrace online dating as a viable way to meet someone wonderful. It's one of the quickest, most efficient ways to expand your dating opportunities and increase the likelihood of finding a happy healthy relationship.

Laura is a beautiful woman with a dazzling smile and an easy, delightful way about her that makes her a real standout. She has a graceful, high-spirited air that makes people sit up and take notice. I met Laura for the first time in a restaurant where we met to go over the results of her CORE MAP, an in-depth assessment she had just completed. During our conversation Laura shared with me that she had always purposefully diminished her natural charisma and shine because she had found early in life that it made other people feel insecure.
I started out writing this article as a comparison between training your man and training your puppy. Then I realized that even though I don’t mean it that way, there is no possible way to make that comparison without someone, or almost everyone thinking I’m comparing men to dogs or insinuating men are stupid. They aren’t. For the record, I think men are way smarter then most women give them credit for. I also think the thing men and dogs have most in common is a very high code of loyalty.
Many women love to play "fix-it"--transforming people, problems, or relationships, usually in the name of "helping." And one of our favorite targets is men. Have you ever leapt into a relationship with a man you thought you could "fix"? Have you ever told yourself that you're the game-changer--the one woman this man will change for? Chances are good that you've been there. Maybe you're there now. And it's time to stop--because this mission only leads you to one place: misery.
How does your house look right now? And maybe I don’t mean your whole house but do you ever have a room, a closet, or a pile that you mean to get to, sort through and organize but one day leads to another and another and nothing gets done? I’ve done this so many times myself, and it drives me nuts. I will procrastinate and find a zillion other things to do rather then focus on the actual thing that’s bugging me.
1) Visualize Your Success I don't mean to sound hokey but if you have no idea what success in your weight loss endeavor is supposed to look like, how will you be able to measure or even gauge whether you're making progress?
