The biggest discrepancy between men and women is the way they look at relationships. Women need a relationship to have sex. Guys need sex to have a relationship. That says everything. Guys could do without the relationship if they just had sex, most of the time. Women think they could do without the sex if they had a great relationship. But…they can’t, nor should they. Women’s ambiguous feelings toward sex and relationships tend to initiate most of the conflict within the relationship and marriage. It’s not that women don’t want sex; it’s simply that they want the relationship more. Guys cannot understand this, and they go to great lengths to try and “trick” the system, but the system is set in place, and the only one who gets tricked is the guy and whoever he is in a relationship with.
Why is it that some men are able to get as many dates with women that they can handle while other men are barely get a first date much less a second date? Life can sometimes be cruel and among the cruelest things for a man to deal with would be when women seemingly pass them over without even a second thought. Those men that find themselves so seemingly unattractive to women will always wonder why they are so unlucky.
Giving your children an age appropriate and respectful explanation of your decision to split can even be a relief from the constant feeling of tension not knowing what could happen. The costs of living in an environment that always feels tense and strained is toxic for overall health and well-being.
The only thing that stays the same is change. When we begin to see our lives as being routine, then any deviation from the way it's always been done can cause panic. Take New Year's Resolutions for example. If you have not consistently followed through on achieving your resolutions from previous years, then why start now? Many people make the mistake of creating resolutions with no idea how or what skills they'll need to achieve their results.
This guest article from Psych Central was written by Margarita Tartakovsky, M.S. Western culture views independence as a virtue. We’ve been taught that a truly strong person doesn’t need anybody to survive and thrive. But being attached to your partner is actually a good thing.
It's as if something takes over. When jealousy gets triggered, it can quickly build and seem to take control of you. It can even feel like you weren't the one saying or doing what you did. The spying, relentless questioning, accusations and more can all come from jealousy. And it can all be unwarranted. Maybe your spouse has proven to you over and over again that you actually CAN trust him or her. Maybe you've tried to convince yourself of this too...but you always seem to forget.
In "The Zone", a self-hypnotic, meditative state, bring up your POWER IMAGE, a dynamic see-feel-hear-smell-taste representation of you exactly the way you want to be. See him or her first from a distance, then zoom in close, floating all around, above, and below your POWER IMAGE, then for a few moments, STEP INTO and BE that person, looking out on the world through his/her eyes, moving with his/her arms and legs, feeling with her/his heart and spirit. Experience what it's like to have ALREADY RESOLVED some of the issues you USED TO struggle with.
Presented here as a hypnotic induction, "Finding the Zone" blends self-hypnosis and meditation.

By SMF Marcus Osborne for GalTime.com One of the cornerstones of any relationship is trust. That, of course, begins with forthright and open communication. We all want it. We all expect it form our partners. Rightfully so. Years of trust can be shredded by one breach of a couple's virtual relationship contract.
