The word relationship scares the crap out of otherwise grown, capable and responsible men and women alike. And really all I have to say is NONSENSE. Think about it. Haven't you known at least one person who frets about someone they're dating, subjecting you to hours of “uh God, what is he/she thinking”--only to end with “but it's not like I want a relationship or anything”. But in all fairness, there's no “or anything” about it. What your friend is saying is that they don't want a serious relationship when they are in fact already in one, albeit a casual one. So what's the problem?
An occasional, mildly jealous episode might actually heighten the interest in your relationship but chronic, pathological jealousy is like a cancer that will destroy any loving feelings that exist in your relationship. With that in mind, here are five signs you are a jealous mess.
By the JOY Professor, Johanna Lyman, for GalTime.com I’ve noticed that people tend to believe that feeling insecure is a character flaw. While it’s true that we don’t value insecurity in our society, it may be worthwhile to re-evaluate that position. When we face an insecurity, it allows us to access vulnerability, which can be a very powerful experience.
This morning I discovered a new post and blog by Lady Gaga which showed un-retouched photographs of her in minimal clothing, looking thin. The post was in response to reports that Gaga had gained weight.
continued from part 1 Excessive calls to his place of employment What are you trying to do? Get him fired? Now your man cannot pay his phone bill or even his rent, because you assisted in getting him fired. Now he must move in with you because you overextended yourself with phone calls to his job.
If you are someone who occasionally lies, you know where your line is. You know when you feel it’s OK to tell a lie, and when you feel you must be truthful. But here's the problem: No one else will ever know where you draw that line. If you lie about even the littlest thing, your spouse or significant other will wonder about everything you say. You will never be able to articulate to your partner how you come to the decision to lie. And just as important, you will never be able to justify it.
Insecurity. We've all experienced it. Whether it flares up when you're standing next to a gorgeous woman or because your current flame is in contact with his old flame, we've all been insecure. And, while most of us wouldn't care to admit it, many of us have been needy too.
We’ve all probably done it - looked up his ex-girlfriend on Facebook. Curiosity is not a problem. That’s normal. You want to know what she looks like. You want to know if you are prettier, sexier, and have a better body. That’s very normal. But if you have googled, played detective, researched, and practically STALKED his exes, you need to take a look at yourself and why you do it.
"OMG. OMG. Please don't let him see my kangaroo pouch. The lights. The lights. We need to dim the lights. He can't see my flabby thighs or the cellulite on the back of my ass." You retreat. The fire inside you dims. The pleasurable sensations dull all because you can't let go of those damn body hang-ups.
Dating Insecurities is not the same thing as dating inhibitions but both scenarios will cause havoc in your love life if practiced on a regular basis. While the two are related, inhibitions can just be lack of experimentation or fear of the unknown. Insecurities can be a lot stronger where help may be needed from a therapist to change the deep rooted problem. What are some of the more common insecurities within our relationships?
Have you ever noticed your husband or boyfriend casting a glance at another woman’s cleavage or tight jeans? If you haven’t, then you probably haven’t been paying attention. Now and then I have a client ask me something like, “Is it normal that my husband was pointing out the college girls in short skirts at the bar last night?” These women ask out of true curiosity, fear, confusion, anger, hurt and even amusment.
Relationships are kind of like therapy—they bring all your dirt to the surface so you can work through it and move beyond it. This makes perfect sense because relationships and therapy have the same purpose: growth. Therapy is especially hard in the beginning because you’re becoming aware of all the dirt you’ve been hiding under the surface for so long. Therapy doesn’t create the dirt, it just shines a spotlight on it.
You'll never see a dude turn to another dude and ask, "Do I look fat in these pants?" But that doesn't mean men are invulnerable to insecurities, no matter how much we'd like to think so. Women are upfront about their fears, doubts, and self-esteem. I used to think it was just compulsive gabbiness, a quirk of the fairer sex. But, in fact, it is an admirable coping mechanism that's even a little bit courageous. That said, I'll sack up and admit that I've spent a lot of my life feeling like a fatty, a chubasaurus, half-man and half-marshmallow.
