After the Breakup, Change Up Your Playlist To Put On A Happy Face

What do Lucinda Williams’ Essence, Annie Lennox’s "Bare" and Steely Dan’s "Everything Must Go," have in common?  They're all breakup CDs that came out roughly around the time of my divorce.  Perhaps gray skies were gonna clear up, but in the meantime, I had to have them.  I’m not even sure I knew why when I bought them.  Warren Zevon’s "The Wind" is not a breakup CD, unless you count the fact that he was dying, kind of a breakup with the universe. I had to have that one too.

Women Need Time To Get Their Sexy On

If you are a woman you can relate to the fact then many men always seem “on.” They may work all day, come home exhausted, but if you mention sex, most of them are ready and raring to go. Women are not like this. We need time to make a transition into sexy. A big mistake many couples with small children make is on date night, if dinner is set for 7p.m. they have the sitter come at 6:30 or 6:45.

When a man is in a bad mood, withdrawn, sad, or whatever, a woman’s tendency is to want to support and nurture him. Women do this to other women and it’s welcomed. But when you do it to a man, he wants nothing to do with it. Men process their feelings and emotions differently than women do.

When he’s ready, he’ll come out, with the mood usually gone.

5 Surefire Ways To Say No To Sex

There comes a time in every girl's life where we find ourselves in a heavy (but not so hot) sexual situation. Namely, we just don't want to do it. At times this mysterious anti-sex aversion doesn't make any kind of logical sense. We'll rationalize that he smells fine, has bought us five dinners and seems to be in decent shape, so surely we should want to sleep with him, right? Yet the harsh reality? Nothing would make us happier then to read a book alone fully clothed in our own apartment—and we'd like to leave now. While our convictions might be strong, some of us ladies have an annoying tendency to bend our own wishes to mesh more easily with his. Our motives for doing this are two-fold, we're empathetic, want to protect his ego and we'd like a harmonious post-date atmosphere.  Sex Does A Body Good Here are 6 no-fail tips that won't make him feel unsexy.

Mood Music: Suggestions From A Master

There is any number of horrifying things on my laptop one could discover, not the least of which is a playlist on my iTunes called "Chill Out." But here's my confession: It's not actually for chilling out. It's for making out. While trying not to humiliate myself further, I thought I would share some of the music I consider appropriate for an intimate night in. Music taste is highly personal, and I don't expect these will work for everyone, but you might find something here that gets your blood running just the right way.
