We laugh and joke all the time about how men don’t want to get married.
“Often a man gives up his dreams: dreams of being a bachelor and dreams of the work he desires. Not only is he giving that up, but, if marriage and family have been your priority, you’re getting your dreams fulfilled.” Men Made Easy
We laugh and joke all the time about how men don’t want to get married. But men do get married…all the time; two and a half million of them every year. And how many adult men (who are straight) do you know who have never been married? Hardly any.
Women make New Years weight loss resolutions differently then men.
You may be making a list of all of your resolutions for 2011. However, if you are like most women, they may not stick. Although women make New Year’s resolutions twice as often as men, less than one half follow through more than thirty days. And most of these women will not stick to their resolution past Valentine’s Day. The reason may be the “way” that women make resolutions.
Tips for making sure your New Year's Resolutions result in success!
Ah, New Year's..... Assuming you are like the rest of us: you've had enough of your family and in-laws, you've indulged a bit too much and you are ready to have more routine again. And as the clean slate of 2011 dawns, perhaps you consult your horoscope to see what destiny has in store for you. Or for those of you who prefer to take a more active role in your lives, you make New Year's Resolutions, setting an intention for what you hope for in 2011.
Don’t drag your old relationship into the new year.You’re establishing new ways, new approaches.
You’ve made your New Year’s resolutions, and this year you’re sticking to them, by gum! You’ve set new diet goals, fitness goals and spending – oops, make that budgeting - goals. You even have a new relationship this year, or one that solidified as the New Year began. Oh happy day, all is well. You feel energize, thrilled to start the New Year with so many good things in place.
Resolutions are promises. What promises will you make in 2011 that will impact your relationship?
Have you ever stopped to consider how powerful a promise is? With a promise we steal some of the uncertainty from tomorrow. We stake a claim on the unknown future and declare that we will not leave it to chance or whim. With promises, those we make to others and to ourselves, we become leaders of our lives and loves rather than victims of uncertainty.
Promise-making is what we’re doing every time we make resolutions, whether they be New Year’s resolutions or otherwise. Every resolution is a commitment to be intentional about what comes next.
Alicia's dating history was nothing short of disastrous. As much as she wanted a great relationship, she found herself attracting—and being attracted to—men that had personality traits she didn't want... personality traits that left her feeling worried, anxious or insecure about where she stood in her relationship, or if her partner liked her as much as she did him.
Tis the season for surprises – but hopefully the good kind, not anything along the lines of the seem
Tis the season for surprises – but hopefully the good kind, not anything along the lines of the seemingly surprise divorce announced by Dexter actors Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter. After nearly two years of an apparently healthy marriage – at least from the outside looking in – the couple announced recently they would be splitting up, although they'll remain working together and the decision seems mutual and amicable.
Welcome to my end of the year rant on what the $#*% are you up to with your life~I dare you to read!
You may not want to hear this, but you could be living a much more extraordinary life than what you've got going on. We all have access to so much more potential than what we tap into each day. There are some really good reasons, life circumstances and how comes that explain why we are not reaching our highest potential. What will get you the life you deserve? Being a victim to these or stepping up and taking charge of your destiny?
Dr. Adam Sheck writes about the myth of the "New Year Kiss" and creating a passionate 2011.
What are your thoughts about the New Year Kiss?
The common myth is that if you don't kiss someone at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve, you will be condemned to a year of loneliness. Yes, it's a superstition, yet if you look around at five minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve, I have no doubt that many singles will be looking desperately for someone to kiss.
There is so much expectation when it comes to New Year’s eve celebrations. The pressure on single people is even stronger to make it a big night. They want to send off the past year of heartbreak and romantic misfortunes and see themselves as a success in love in the new year exclaiming, “this is going to be MY year.” Secretly, though, they dread the thought of standing alone at the stroke of midnight yet again.
