Do you feel like your partner is sincere and genuine when making promises to you, only to disappoint you later by not following through? How does it affect your ability to trust and believe your partner when promises get broken over and over again?
Rita is head chef at a gourmet restaurant. She is renowned for creating unique dishes that keep customers coming back.

Travelers Digest Magazine recently ranked the top 10 cities with the most attractive women. Stockholm, Sweden came in at the #1 spot. They explained that Stockholm looks like the set of a fictional show, “What Happens When Supermodels Work at a Convenience Store.” Farrah Fawcett was recently ranked as one of the “100 Hottest Women of All Time” in a 2011 edition of Men’s Health magazine.
Finding our perfect mate involves chemistry. But it’s a complex equation! If I could go into a laboratory and invent a powder called “romantic chemistry” that I could sprinkle around to make people fall for each other, I would be famous. Not to mention rich! It’s a total mystery why people are attracted to one person and not another. Why do I feel the “chemistry” to kiss my husband but couldn’t imagine kissing his equally attractive friend?
I hear about it week after week, month after month. From men and women. No, it is not affairs. Here's what it is: "When we are home together, life is great. But when we are with friends, family, workmates, bosses (take your pick—all are mentioned by various clients of all ages), he/she does things that make me want to hide under a table, or better yet, run." The examples are endless...
When I make this statement during my speaking events or to clients, I get instant resistance from everyone. After I explain, the resistance seems to dissipate. Although it is true that men are very visual and are attracted to the most beautiful women in the room, they usually won’t approach them. The women in the room are usually intimidated by the beautiful people, both men and women. They don’t approach the most beautiful either. So how does this work?
By: Malia Karlinsky, Love and Sex Editor from GalTime. “The relationship between what you eat and your sex life is like the fuel you put into a car,” says nutritionist Elizabeth Somer. “Pump the nutritional equivalent of sawdust into your body and you are more likely to feel like a jalopy than a race car. Put high-octane foods into that system, rev it up with a bit of exercise and you will pump up your thrill quotient and reconnect with the Maserati within.”
If it was up to me I would get rid of LOVE from the dictionary. I would even go so far as to completely remove it from our vocabulary. And to go ever further I would imprison anyone who uttered the word love from their mouth. I would then replace it with a different four letter word. One that also begins with “L”. But this word would be easier to understand and would not cause so much confusion in your life.
Ladies, Have you ever been made to feel silly, stupid or simple when trying to buy a car? You are not alone, and even though women make up a full 51% of auto purchases in the US, and influence 96% of all car sales, the majority of car dealerships are still sub par when it comes to treating women fairly.
Condoms get a bad rap. We understand and sometimes even agree, but it's certainly not deserved in all cases. (We'll get to that.) With every new relationship comes the uncomfortable but critical "talk" about health status. This means disclosing if and when you've been tested for HIV and STI's, deciding if you need to schedule a test, and discussing the preventative measures you will take (condoms and/or dams) to stay safe. Even in monogamous, long-term relationships, today's women are weighing their contraceptive options more carefully.
