We can learn a lot from animals about parenting. Plus, there is a ton of research to support the benefits of relationships between humans and animals. Here are just a few of the things that I have learned.
Most people I know have been affected in some way by the awful stock market and the current recession. Be that as it may, you still have a choice when it comes to your dating or love life.
Most women are multi-taskers by necessity. Our culture says we can do it all. We can achieve an education from a good university, have a career, be a wife and mother if we choose to, have fun with our girlfriends, and enjoy a full social calendar with our life partner. We expect to be able to to have it all without negative physical and emotional consequences, and worse we believe we are failures if we can't.
Finding reasons to hope are the handholds that put us back on our feet, help us see bright possibilities in the world and, once more, believe that life can be good.
Astrology, if you believe in it or not, does influence many people when they date. On most dating sites, you can go through profile after profile and see what Zodiac Sign a person is and for some it can be a deciding factor if they want to contact you.

When I review my clients’ profiles for online dating, I look at their search ranges for a mate of age, height, income, personal status (never married, divorced, children) and distance you would go to meet someone. What I see is many are limiting themselves too much and are missing opportunities!
If you're like many women, there was more than once in your life you thought you found Prince Charming, only to find out he was Mr. Wrong in many ways. This happens because often times Mr. Wrong is charming and says the right things to make him appear to be better than he really is.

You know what I mean? You see your “friends” (some of them you’ve never even met in person! posting pictures of their amazing vacations)Envy Are you counting other people’s blessings instead of your own?
Most of my favorite relationships in the 13 years since I've been divorced have come through personal ads. Since I can ask directly for all the qualities I want when I place my ad, and since “collecting people” is my favorite hobby, this way of finding special persons has worked well for me.
