About 6 years ago, a year or so after we were married, my husband forwarded me an email he had received from a friend.

He stated that he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

Life is meant to be full of happy endings.
We can’t talk about dating without mentioning the ‘R’ word: Rejection. It’s a basic fear that prevents many people from putting themselves out there. No one wants to feel rejected, unloved, or worse, unlovable. It’s easy to feel stung, or rejected, when we reach out to someone to invite a deeper connection and they do not share our desire.

We may not even be aware that positive thoughts are a golden key to thriving – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, sexually, and even financially.
I believe that emotional intimacy is the MAIN component of a love relationship that keeps a man invested long-term. Most older women can’t compete with 25-year-olds and 30-somethings sauntering through their husbands’ work spaces in miniskirts and push-up bras, but the wise older wives have something much more significant than toned bodies and flawless skin: they have years’ worth of happy marital memories, which have enhanced their ability to hold their husband

How To Get the man of your dreams.com has decided to tackle one of the toughest and most controversial subjects of our century, with a solution and explanation through mathematical and economic deductive reasoning. It is purely a mathematical equation. If you talk to 100 black women and get one decent one, and you talk with 100 white women and get twenty decent women, it just makes mathematical and economic sense to date the women with whom you would have spent the most amount of time and had the least financial burden.

We've all heard at one time or another someone use the excuse, "I was so drunk, I can't believe I woke up to a troll in my bed! Tequila is never the right answer for Fun Fridays..." And sure, "Accidental Lushing" is an overdone (and in my opinion, completely falsified reasoning to fall back on), but what about those horrific, purposeful encounters?

My mother says it's unbecoming to talk about wanting to get married. It's the man's job, leave it to him. He will decide when he is ready. My father says children are overrated. "That was harsh," he backtracks, but too late - my already unsteady and wavering mind is flickering with signs of my future child feeling the same way he just made me feel. The fear and the anxiety is too much - how could I ever want to do that to someone? After all, I am his daughter.
