Many people only date through online resources. This is mainly due to age, time and busy careers. (You don’t even have to dress for the occasion unless you’re socializing with them through a Web cam.) It is almost too easy, and this is what causes the addiction. It can be very exciting for some people who have always had a minimal personal life. All of a sudden they are getting 5 to10 e-mails a day from prospective dates! The addiction is not necessarily even with meeting the contacts.
Connection is created, navigated, ruptured, and repaired daily from the moment we are born. At the heart of being alive lies the vitality of being connected to others- feeling that what we do matters. What’s more is that we rely on being deeply understood by those around us in order to thrive. But how do we learn about healthy connection? What does it look like to build strong ties with others? Where do we learn about relating with people and the world more broadly? If connecting is so central to happiness, why does it seem so challenging to create deep bonds that last?
Often times as women we are so busy taking care of everything and everyone in our lives that we forget to take care of #1 (ourselves!). I’ve compiled a short list of simple little things that you could do everyday to show a little self-love. After all, you deserve it for all the hard work you do!

Maybe there was even a test scheduled for that day – even better! What about other times when you’ve been spared some sort of undesirable fate?
Porn is happening. Porn is everywhere. Porn can be light and for fun, or porn can be a multi billion dollar profit for some and detrimentally expensive for others. So, I'd like to start off this by saying that pornography in and of itself is not a ‘bad’ thing. We have preconceived notions about porn being something bad. Men feel guilty about it. Women feel threatened by it. And it exists for a reason right? It wouldn't be such a gi-normous industry if people didn't love it.
Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to eat a little healthier, without even noticing that I’m doing it. Now, I should probably confess that I genuinely ENJOY eating healthy. I am one of those people who actually gets excited when I see things like brown rice, tempeh, and kale on the menu. With that said, I do not eat every single meal in a vegan, macrobiotic restaurant (though I would sorta, kinda love that).
Have you ever had a friend who told you she was starting a new diet or exercise regimen – but at the end of 8 weeks, she looked exactly the same as when she started? No thinner, no healthier, no more radiant or energetic? And when you asked her how it was going she just kind of……changed the subject?
Why do you get this sinking sensation when you look over at your husband one morning and your heart fails to flutter? What if you're not in love with him anymore? A woman calls her friend, panicked. "I don't think I'm in love with my husband anymore!" "What happened, " her friend asks.
