If the chemistry of attraction fades for most couples within six to nine months of being together, how are you supposed to maintain a satisfying sex life for the years and decades you hope to spend with your spouse? If you're hearing half of what I am, you know this is not just an issue for long time married couples. Sexual doldrums, or just quitting having sex, happens at many different points in a relationship. Let's go beneath the surface to first understand what might be occurring for the two of you, and then what you can do about it if that's not what you want.
I recently watched a video on YouTube and realized it was a perfect way to illustrate a resource I’ve been wanting to share with my readers. The video features two self-made multimillionaires asking self-help guru and motivational speaker Tony Robbins why some people follow through while others don’t.
Masturbation. There…I said it. The "Big M." I don't generally talk about this, so it may shock you. But the time has come to chat about the role sex – or lack thereof – plays in the life of a woman in her later years who is single and looking for love.
When babies bond with their parents, they create an “attachment style” based on the bonding experience. Most people have more than one attachment style, due to more than one significant adult in the life of a baby. This attachment style influences all the relationships of life including friendships, work relationships, mate selection, and family dynamics after marriage.
Bonding with your baby might sound like getting Krazy Glued together, but it’s actually more like a dance. You learn to read and respond to your infant’s nonverbal cues -- her body language, cries and giggles -- and she comes to trust that you are reliable and that she can find ways to connect, communicate her needs, and find comfort. Mutual attachment grows between you. A baby who develops a secure attachment is off to a healthy start. Her strong connection with you helps her grow more independent.
"I hate breakups." "But I hate being alone too." "I feel trapped." Can you relate? http://www.yourtango.com/200920861/how-break-man ">Breakups can be paralyzing. Blindsided by your partner's change of heart, a sudden disappearance can throw your entire life into chaos. At times it takes years to recover. And then you want to try again? Many say "No Thanks."
You’re on the couch and he’s in the bed, but neither of you is sleeping. After the heated argument over your summer vacation destination, he stomped angrily upstairs and you sit sobbing on the couch. He wants to go to camping with tents and backpacks and you want to stay at a resort by the ocean.
Many, many years ago when I was new in my search for figuring out who the heck I am and how I can make a better life or feel better about myself or something, I spent lots of time in a monthly workshop here in Los Angeles called “Making Love Work”. It was taught by the very young, unfamous married couple, John Gray (Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus) and his then wife, Barbara deAngelis. (John’s been married to his wife Bonnie for 26 years currently.)
By Julie Fishman If you do have trouble acting “normal” around men, you probably admire the guys’ girl, that rare breed of female that can almost automatically relate to dudes. From talking sports to tossing back drinks, these women seem completely comfortable in front of their male cohorts. However, I can tell you from experience that being a guys’ girl isn’t all fist pounds and high fives.
Mars Venus Coaching talks about social media and relationships. Today we use social media like FaceBook, MySpace, LinkedIn, and Twitter to check on the lives of many people whom we call family and “friends.” Our relationships run the gamut of son or daughter, to best friends from high school, college drinking buddies, alumni, acquaintances, co-workers, bosses, exes, and the nebulous is he or isn’t she my boyfriend/girlfriend?
