The Five Elements theory makes a strong link between summer, the heart, small intestine, fire, red, joy, laughter, vitality, warmth, growth, speech, the depth of communication, sweating, language, blood, bitter taste, arms, and shoulders. Fire is in our energy every day from 11am to 3pm, which is lunchtime. Thus, in summer, informal lunches with friends or family (joy, communication), especially outdoors (heat), around a barbecue (fire) are particularly suitable!
When someone you love betrays your trust, it can feel like an insurmountable hurdle. Our experts beg to differ. With a little TLC, it's completely possible for your relationship to survive infidelity. Here's how:
Being newly single can be scary, but it also opens up a whole new world of opportunity. Consider all the men that you never noticed while you were in a relationship. You may be surprised by whom you might connect with 1. The guy you see every morning on your way to work: It used to be that you’d have to rush out the door, coffee mug in one hand, keys in the other, bag in your mouth, unable to even acknowledge his presence.
Read this article to find out when you should end your relationship. When you are in a relationship, you should always be tuned in to your inner voice. Meaning, you should always feel happy and confident. If you are frequently feeling annoyed, depressed, or mistreated, then it’s time to move on. Here are nine signs that show you it’s definitely time to get out:
Read this article if you are shy but still want to understand what men think. For a typically shy girl, it may be hard to pick up men. But, I have compiled a list of pick-up lines that have worked wonders for my clients. You can try them as is, or create different versions. 1. I couldn’t help but notice that tie you’re wearing; it really brings out the color of your eyes. 2. The leather on your briefcase is really magnificent. You have great taste. 3. Is that your cell phone ringing or mine?
When dating, be sure you are sending the right signals. 1. Be playful, not a tease: Studies have shown that men respond positively to flirtatious touching. While it's cute to the rest your hand on his arm while you laugh at his joke, it’s inappropriate to stroke his inner thigh. Unless you’re aiming for a one-night-stand, avoid anything too sexual
Everyone tells you what not to eat on the first date. Often they’re foods that are messy, phallic, or make your date feel like he’s dining with a rabbit. However, rarely is there ever advice on what you should eat when a prospective boyfriend takes you out for sushi when you hate fish. Or what to do if he takes you to Italian and INSISTS that you try the pasta of the house. It’s easy to say “don’t eat ribs on a first date” until you find out he’s taking you to the best barbecue place in town.
Gyms, pools, tennis courts, yoga studios and running tracks are all great places to meet people and begin to date. So, there’s no reason to go into hiding while you’re losing weight and getting into shape. Don’t be shy, you may be in the process of looking your best but you can still look terrific while you work out. It’s time to throw out those old stained, ugly sweatpants and baggy t-shirts. If your gym gear is stylish you’ll actually feel better about going to the gym. So, please, go invest in some gym attire that is flattering.
When dating him and he’s pursuing you and you’re not interested, then you are the one holding all the cards. You always hear women talking about how they want the guy that is not available, so if you’re not into it just be upfront with him about it. You have to be firm but kind and just say, “I’m flattered that you’re so interested in me, but I think I am looking for something different”. Men hear what they want to hear, so you need to make it very clear that you are not interested in a romantic relationship with him.
One of the relationship questions I get that comes up often by my clients is about when to meet the kids. There are many factors to consider: the age of the child(ren), the length of time you are dating, the circumstances under which you met your partner and whether this is a serious relationship or leading to a more committed arrangement.
