Do you ever feel like you and your beau are hitting a love rut? You’ve been going out for a while now, beyond the honeymoon phase and need to spice things up? Or you’ve been married for years and feel a little distant? Well, it’s time to bring the fireworks back to your relationship and what better place to start than the very beginning… kissing.
When January rolls around, tradition suggests making all sorts of resolutions. However, they all have one thing on common: They get broken. Statistically, 25 percent of New Year's resolutions are broken in the first week, and 90 percent by the end of February!
"Hugs are what I miss the most." A deep sigh followed by a painful silence. Not knowing the frail little lady in front of me, I was not sure what to say. Her skin at 85 was nearly transluscent and it looked like a hug might break a bone. "How long has it been?" I asked. "Thirty eight years next week, two days before our anniversary."
Men and women usually go to the club for vastly different reasons. Men go to the club to find women, find women, and to find women. Women go to the club to sometimes find a man, but also to enjoy themselves by dancing and drinking the night away with friends. Men are reactionary creatures. If you want to know what we think about you at the club, all you need to do is evaluate one thing: Your activity at the club. Men read what women give us to read. It’s as simple as that.
Happy holidays! Here's something I want you to think about today: when was the last time you gave a real hug? Today I want to talk about real hugs, reflection & being honest.

Is your guy totally into someone else? Plan B may soon be available over-the-counter. Good-looking friends make you look... better. Hugs may not be as innocent as you think. France may ban prostitution.
This morning, I found myself yearning for love. I just wanted to be in the arms of someone who would tell me that everything would be okay. For various reasons, the past week has been a rough one for me. Truth be told, I’ve been mired in what I call The Dark Place, which is exactly what it sounds like. In The Dark Place, there is no light, warmth, or hope. It’s not a rational or fun place to find myself, but I was there nonetheless. I knew my husband was the person I needed to lean on. Yet, from my vantage point in The Dark Place, my husband was part of the problem. He seemed distant. I felt as if we spoke two different languages. I also felt some sort of odd tension between us. But one thing I know about The Dark Place is this: human interaction and touch is one of the fastest ways to get out of it. A HUG A DAY KEEPS THE DARKNESS AWAY

Sometimes spooning is a good scene. But for some reason there's a stigma against straight dudes who like riding inside spoon. I know that being held isn't very manly but that doesn't explain why it feels so darn good, does it? Maybe one day we can live in a world where a man can be hugged from behind while lying in bed and still be able to look himself in the mirror.
