Failed relationship after failed relationship: When will it stop? Try getting to know yourself, and then worry about getting to know someone else.
[Contributed by: Most Brave Girl] We all know one of these girls. She’s an absolute sweetheart and she deserves the best but she always gets stuck with the worst guys. Every single member of her parade of boyfriends has disappointed her but she never sees any of the red flags along the way. Don’t be this girl! Know what to look for in a man and save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are the top 6 indicators of a good guy that you can watch for on the first few dates.
So, you've finally met a guy who is husband material, marriage-minded and wants to make a commitment to you. Wow. Now that you have this unpolished gemstone in your hand, you can either bring out the brilliance, or you can seriously waste the opportunity.
I loved "Mamma Mia!", the ABBA movie. I loved "Hairspray." So of course I also loved "Pitch Perfect," directed by Jason Moore: Watching a group of misfits perform everything from Ace of Base to Rihanna together is infectiously, vicariously fun. But aside from the singing (though the singing is so good!) this is a story of unexpected friendships and life-changing love.
So after years of being happily single, you find yourself falling in love again. You didn’t plan it… It just happened. What started out as casual date has turned into something much deeper and you are thinking about settling down. One of my friends asked the question: When you have been single for years, how do you transition from the “selfish me” mindset into a “we” oriented relationship?
Conventional wisdom says that people in relationships usually gain weight, thanks to a variety of factors like high-calorie date nights and skipping yoga in favor of snuggling at home. In addition, people who work out in the hopes that their toned physique will snag them a suitor might relax their gym routine once they’ve found a mate. Obviously this isn’t true for everyone, though...
So let's say you are in a long-term relationship with the guy or girl of your dreams. Or, let's say you are trying to rekindle an old relationship or you're in a situation with someone whom you have a lot of history with, but you keep sensing some things just aren't the same. In many ways it may seem that a lot of stuff from the past no longer exists in your relationship and you wonder if you can ever go back.
There you are, finally dating the awesome dude of your dreams (or just a guy you like very, very much). Suddenly, you're inseparable. You can't go anywhere without each other. Instead of taking time for yourself, you manage to spend every possible second with each other — and you like it!
We’ve all heard the saying, “Out with the old and in with the new,” and when it comes to love it couldn’t be more beneficial. There is an exchange of energy that occurs with every person we connect with, and when we are intimate with someone that energetic exchange becomes even deeper. When we hold onto the past, it's as if we have ropes of energy holding us back and keeping us from moving forward toward our desired goal. When we do not release our exes, it's as if we are in a tug-of-war with the past. This is true whether or not we are “carrying a torch” for someone.
Joy and success in relationships are built on trust. Without trust, what’s really left? Certainly not fulfilling sex! Who and what you trust will have a great impact on the results of your intimate relationship and life. You can look at the quality of trust in your life from four different perspectives: How well you trust in your divine source, how well you trust yourself, how well others trust you, and how well and wisely you trust others.
