Throughout the history of cinema, there has never been another screen legend quite like Marilyn Monroe—although her talent was often overshadowed by her many failed loves and her sex-symbol status. But even through the tough times, fighting illness and battling back from relationship woes, she was never without her sense of humor and many words of wisdom.
Nothing says "long distance relationship" like waiting months on end just to hold your partner's hand. Miserable, right? Enter the Taion Heart, a Japanese handheld gadget that mimics the sensation of holding hands by sending your pressure squeeze, pulse and hand temperature to your partner's matching device.
With each man who enters my life, I think I'm making a better choice than the last. Yet even though I'm in my 40s, I keep making the same mistakes again and again. When my current relationship started (temporarily) to nosedive, I began wondering if I'd learned anything from my relationships with men. I decided to take inventory. Starting at 17 and continuing until the age of…don't mention it, here's what I've learned.
As of 7:02 am EST on December 16, the moon is in Sagittarius. New moons are often characterized as bringing forth new beginnings, and a new beginning in fire sign Sagittarius, known for its candid, honest nature, means (as astrologer Lynn Hayes writes) an "expansion of our sense of what is possible and what is correct."
A relationship, much like rush-hour traffic on the interstate on a Friday evening, requires no small amounts of patience, determination and smart maneuvering. Some of us were born good drivers, others manage by the skin of our bumpers. For those of us in need of a defensive driving course or two, here are five pieces of advice for the road that work just as well as on the rollercoaster of love:
One way technology is making infidelity more seamless than ever before. There's an app that allows you to find an adulterous partner with a few taps of the keyboard – or handheld device. A website named AshleyMadison.com is a dating site specifically for committed individuals who want to cheat, and now it can be accessed by Blackberry and iPhone, reports Jeremy Caplan in this week's Time magazine.
What do you call the guy you've been seeing for the past few weeks? Because, as Big asked Carrie in the Sex and the City movie, when you're both adults, isn't he a little old to be your boyfriend? It sounds so, well, high school. In the spirity of maturation, YourTango has come up with ten alternate names to call your man.
Stubborn love can drive a wedge between a man's competing passions, forcing him to make torturous decisions. As the old adage goes, you can't have your cake and eat it too. In this case, you can't marry the woman you long for and remain a priest in the Roman Catholic church. That's the thorny predicament in which Miami-based celebrity priest, Father Alberto Cutie , finds himself as YourTango told you on March 7.
Phone sex is popular for a myriad of reasons. Number one, it's safe. You literally talk your way to a place where you want to touch yourself. No protection needed. Phone sex can also be intensely intimate, and it can bring you and your partner together, even if you happen to be on separate coasts or in different countries.
It's definitely not the type of light and airy chat you want to strike up on your first starry-eyed date. Let's be honest: Dredging up the past and owning all things that went right and wrong can be about as pleasant as having a root canal. But precisely because spilling the beans requires such a high level of comfort and trust, a Q&A session (topic: all things past) with your guy can bring the two of you closer in your relationship.
