Are You Lonely Or Just Addicted To An Unrealistic Romantic Myth?
Contrary to what you may think, romance rarely just shows up at one's door, and can take some work.

I understand that physical attraction and social skills have a lot to do with our success in relationships also. In that vein, make yourself as attractive and happy as you can be, smile a lot, be outgoing, be open minded, be kind and friendly. Go out of your way to help others. Stop focusing on yourself and give back to others. Let yourself go. Love freely. And above all else be honest and real about love. Ask yourself, are you holding out for that one true romance or is there something you’re missing like the knowledge that romance might actually be a myth, in that it doesn’t just show up on your doorstep and you never have to raise a finger. The truth is that romance takes work, commitment and dedication to find, build, manage and maintain. Are you willing to do the work?

We are such a clothed society. As a soceity we definitely like to show a lot of skin, we like fashion that exposes the midriff, the shoulders, short skirts that show off legs, low cut blowses that show some cleavage, but when it comes down to it, at the end of the day, nudity as a whole is something that is not highly accepted, nor is it publically legal in ...

Yes! 6 Steps to Having Healthy Hook Ups

I read a lot of articles bashing "hook up culture" — its a term du jour, kind of like "menage a trois" was in the 80's — but this term unlike the latter, is not associated with being sex positive and it's usually not written about in a positive light. We live in a society where it often seems like we ... Read more
