This is one holiday that I either love or dread but mostly dread depending on my relationship status as well as most of the people that I know. In fact even couples that are together for some time seem to dread this holiday, especially the men. This is not an article to be negative or take away from other people’s festive romantic time, but to add a little anti-Valentine’s Day humor to the rest of us who would rather just wish the day away.. Let’s start with the meaning of this holiday:
Are you dreading Valentines Day because the dream of romance never quite pans out? Rather than remind yourself of romance gone bad or a partner that went missing in action, make this Valentines Day a true celebration of your love — whether you have a partner or not.
Stuck in a sexual rut? Try one of these 11 games and reignite the passion in your marriage. Hint: they also make great birthday or anniversary gifts!
Have you ever been in involved with a guy you thought was "the one"? In the beginning, and even for the first few months everyhting was great...or so you thought. Then all of a sudden, the sun burst and the happiness facade soon dissipated into the ethers. And once the dust settled and you took off the rose colored glasses you realized that Mr. Right was Mr. Wrong right from the beginning.
Would it come as a surprise if I told you recent survey shows that fancy diets aren't any more likely to result in weight loss than a phone app or sensible eating plan? Even the CEO of Weight Watchers cites routine as his primary weight loss strategy. While he makes healthy choices, my guess is that the routine really sets him up for success.
Sometimes life doesn't turn out as you had expected. But the truth is, when you are dealt a bad hand, you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back in the game. Giving up, feeling sorry for yourself, and crying over the unfairness of it all doesn't cut it. Parents of special needs children know this to be true.
If you’re like many women, Valentine’s Day can be tricky; it’s a big deal for you, and your man somehow blows it more often than he gets it “right”. How can you deal with this annual dance of angst leading up to February 14th, so often followed by hurt, angry, disappointed or resentful feelings afterwards?
Marie fell in love with Steve the first night they met. June was right, he was perfect for her-handsome, a good listener and in a similar line of work. Soon she was madly in love to the point of going over the top in every way to enjoy their love affair. Sleep didn't matter. Food didn't matter. Her job didn't matter. Only Steve mattered. The love making was unbelievable, and so was the connection. The magic would go on forever....
Jen can’t remember the last time she and her husband Bob, had a date or a moment purely to themselves. They both have demanding careers as well as a busy family life. All four of their kids are active in sports so free time is spent shuttling one (or more) to practices and games.
Déjà vu, the feeling that you have experienced a similar situation before, happens to all of us. We walk into a new restaurant and it feels familiar. Someone says something to you and you know that you have heard them say the same exact thing to you previously. Feeling like you are reliving a moment in time can be eery. It reminds of us the comedy Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray where his character lives the same day repeatedly.
