If one is not interested in truly seeing the other, love cannot exist.
I was just watching an older woman (at least 75) and her husband. She was enthusiastically pointing at something, wanting to share with her husband. When he ignored her, she turned to follow him, her head down, obviously feeling bad for not being acknowledged. Watching her brought tears to my eyes.
I had a client tell me she’d forgotten how to actually flirt, and I believe it. It's a lost art.
So much of our contact with other people these days is completely virtual. Text messaging, instant messaging, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, e-mail, and the list goes on. There are an infinite number of ways to communicate in the virtual world. Most of us are pretty good at it. However, face-to-face, girl meets boy flirting is getting to be a lost art. I recently had a client tell me she'd forgotten how to actually flirt, and I believe it. I think most people feel awkward flirting. That said, practice makes perfect.
Understanding a sexual problem is the first step toward treatment, and chances are, you can get help
Sexual disorders are like people -- they come in all shapes, sizes, and kinds. A sexual disorder doesn't mean something is "wrong" with you, only that you're experiencing the kind of issue that can suddenly affect anyone, at any time in their lives, for any reason or no reason whatsoever. While many sexual issues can be traced back to a physical problem or a sudden change in one's life circumstances, many sexual disorders' causes are not well-known or understood.
Were you aware that there are women out there who have their eyes on your man? Keep your eyes open.
In my practice I have seen a new phenomenon that is currently being studied. This phenomenon is “mate poaching”. It has long been suspected that men had a stronger tendency to go after other people’s partners. No one knew if that’s just because men have a tendency to brag about it more or because they are more upfront with this activity. Now new research reported from the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology is finding some evidence that single women are more likely to be drawn to other people’s partners.
Do you have doubts? What they look like, sound like and how to say goodbye to them once and for all!
There is a problem out there that is affecting the masses and it’s not being acknowledged. I then start to wonder if anyone else out there is noticing it because it’s one of those taboo topics that people don’t seem to want to admit. It’s an epidemic that unfortunately affects kids and adults alike, men and women. It doesn’t matter your age, your gender, what you do as a profession or even where you grew up. Maybe you were raised in an affluent neighborhood, or maybe you were raised in an environment where there was a constant struggle with money.
This is a gift from the land of the Faeries to bring you healing and love.
In the past week, I was blessed with information that brought incredible healing and love to my meditation students at Equinox Fitness. I want to share this with you, since it was, and is, such a powerful meditation. You can record it for yourself, or do it with friends with one person reading the meditation:
Who do you let define your sexuality? Who defines whether you are good enough or not? Media,TV,me???
“Today you are you! That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”
You have curly hair, but you want it straight; you spend hundreds at the salon to get that look. You are curvy, but you want to be stick thin; you spend thousands to achieve that look you want. You have brown eyes, but you want blue; you spend money for those colored contacts to achieve that look. You are getting older, and you want to be young; thousands are spent to achieve this look.
Caution: Stepmothers' Emotions May be Mixed, Shaken, or Stirred by this Exhibit
One of the most unique things about stepmothers that I have ever seen on the internet is a website called, "The Other Mother." The website is dedicated to stepmoms "for all that you do...and have been put through..." by artist and stepmother Karen Piovaty.
Karen warns viewers, "Enter with caution! The faint of heart need not apply to the world of stepmotherhood!" Admittedly, I have never studied art before. But, this exhibit is compelling.
Offering a reality check of Charlie Sheen's blended family
Unless you live under a rock, you probably have heard about Charlie Sheen and his two goddesses. Let's pretend for a minute that he gets remarried to just one of the them. And, let's imagine that his fourth marriage succeeds for a while, despite the nearly 80% divorce rate for fourth marriages.
If you are still playing along, let's get real now. What I want to know is:
Making it easy for a guy may not be the best way to make it work.
I recently did short interviews with approximately 50 married men. I asked one simple question. "How did you know she was the one?" Two answers came to the top over and over again.
1. There was something about her that knocked my socks off from the very beginning, some undefinable quality that caught my attention.
2. I knew I'd have to work to get her.
