If you do a Google images search of the word "springtime," pages come up full of colorful wildflowers, fluffy animals and couples enjoying romantic outdoor moments. So, gorget about those New Year's resolutions. Springtime is about new beginnings, shedding old habits, cleaning out your closet and finding new love.
It seems to me that a lot of effort is going into meeting large numbers of potential partners in the hopes that somewhere among them one will find their soul mate. Yet statistically, young people are waiting longer and longer to marry and when polled express fear of making a commitment because "What if he isn't my soul mate?" or "What if she's not the right one?"
There are several myths when it comes to dating, sex and relationships. One myth you've probably heard is that it's too late for you to find love.

As you may know, I’m American. And one thing us Americans tend to value above all else is self-sufficiency and independence (wait, that’s two things... but you know what I mean). I mean, most of us have rebellious pioneers in our DNA and we pride ourselves on being “self-made”- not that there’s really such thing.

I started out writing a list of New Year's Resolutions to recommend for this post – a collection of a few that I had made myself over the years. As I reviewed the list I started crossing some off, and then I started combining the similar ones. I soon realized it really all came down to one single, simple resolution. Just one simple goal to strive for this coming year (which is so much easier because it’s hard enough to keep just one resolution!).

Spending Holidays with In-Laws Can Make Or Break Your Marriage If you want to keep your marriage going strong during the holidays, you might not want to spend too much time with your in-laws.
