Awakening to Love Is A Membership For All

Love is democratic. Unlike a Country Club it doesn’t require expensive initiation fees or arduous tasks to prove one’s worth. We are all already worthy of love. Everyone deserves to have it for themselves and others. In the search for love it can almost become like a quest for the Holy Grail. In reality love is found within and not on some exposition trip to all dating events within your state or country.

3 Secrets to a Successful Marriage

A long hard day dwindled down to me walking my sorry butt into a car service station in Park Slope, Brooklyn and buying a ride home. An older women, in her mid-late 60s, is the driver. She wears her bleach blonde hair in a small high pony tail atop her head with a bright pink scrunchie and has these fantastic thick black glasses with a hearing aide. She is stunning. Oh and she has a GPS, as she states several times throughout the ride home, because 'I get lost all the time.'

Jodie Foster Outs Herself! "I'm Single!"

During a heartwarming and sincere speech at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Jodie Foster proudly announced she is single. Using her wit and charm, she coyly set up the speech to make it appear as if she was inferring to her sexuality.  If being single makes you feel like you are in the minority or are part of an unaccepted group - think otherwise! You are part of a very large majority that is welcomed, embraced and accepted. Being single does not require you to use a separate entrance, sit on the back of the bus or file special citizenship papers.

Table For One: What My Breakup Taught Me About Dining Alone

It all began when I was in New York City killing time before a business meeting. Having always loved dining out, I was happy to stumble upon an enticing-looking restaurant called the Banc Café. I walked in and requested a table for one — I was freshly out of a relationship, so this seemed like a bold move at the time.

If Pinocchio Had a Brother, He'd Be It!

WOW…..That’s how I can sum up the week I just had. Well here it goes… I've been seeing, dating, hanging out (whatever the F you want to call it) this guy for a couple of months now. I had to get him back on track a few times which should have been a sign for me from the start. BUT I was becoming emotionally attached to him even though my conscience knew something seemed fishy. He takes me out for my birthday before hand because he says he won’t be around my actual birthday weekend.

A Christian's Take: God Doesn't Approve Of Gay Marriage

To be honest, in the beginning, I wasn't sure about writing this piece. I usually don't mind giving my opinions on a range of topics, especially involving Christianity. However, this issue is far more complicated than anything I've ever been able to verbalize. But I decided to do it, to write about homosexuality just after New York's historic vote to legalize gay marriage, because I think the Christian view on the subject is widely misunderstood.

Online Dating Is 50 Years Old: The Humble Beginnings

Who knew that online dating got its start in the 1960s on New York's Upper East Side? Project TACT, the first-ever computer matchmaking system, was designed by New York accountant Lewis Altfest and his friend Robert Ross. The two were inspired by the Parker Pen Pavilion they came across at New York's World Fair in 1964, where a giant computer selected pen pals for anyone who wanted one. All they had to do was "fill out a questionnaire, feed it into the machine, and almost instantly received a card with the name and address of a like-minded participant in some far-flung locale—your ideal match." Sound familiar?

Sound Off: After New York Legalized Gay Marriage, I...

Where were you when New York legalized same-sex marriage? While we're a long ways from passing any federal laws in favor of gay marriage, it's tough to deny that last Friday's events mark significant progress for the LGBT movement.

America's Most Chivalrous Cities

In a recent "chivalry smack-down" between five major cities, young women and elderly men were stationed on high-traffic corners and loaded up their arms with boxes until they were visibly struggling to hold them. Which cities were the most helpful, and which gave the struggling shoppers the cold shoulder?
