When asked in one of my workshops to give a statement that described an ideal relationship, a participant said “He gives me what I want before I can ask for it.” The other women in the room replied “Does that even exist?” I told them and I’ll tell you, I can attest to the fact that it does. It’s all about being willing to give and trusting that you will receive.
For Valentine’s Day, Hemal was out of town. He travels off to Toronto every week for work. He flew in last Friday, the day after V-day, and he had bought tickets to see the Broadway musical, Wicked. It was off the hook! I loved the musical. All I had to say is “we aren’t doing anything romantic” and boom! He is booking tickets! Yes, I find a musical romantic. However, it wasn’t always like this…
Was Valentines Day special? Did it help you to remember that you mean something to your partner? I hope so. After all, that's the purpose of this day. However, now it's over. So, does that mean waiting another 364 days until you can be reminded of how special you are?
As a dating and relationship coach, I share my advice with people in need. The advice I give, especially on my newsletter is "you should do this or you should do that" type of advice. Basically, I'm telling peolpe what they should and shouldn't do in order to improve their love lives. It's only natural that some people will ask themslves, "Why, Why me?" .I don't usually write articles about the questions I get asked but this one was so popular, I just had to do it. Here's what some of my readers wrote: “Alex,
In political chambers throughout the country, including in our national Capitol, political leaders give annual addresses to talk about how we are doing and what challenges we need to face in the year ahead. Thinking about the highlights offered in the State of the Union tonight, there are similar categories that you could use to evaluate your union. How would you rate your marriage, domes
When you think about Valentine’s Day what is the first feeling that comes to mind? If you’re like me or my husband, then our initial feelings tends to be one part apathy mixed with a lot of excitement. We want to celebrate our relationship, but we also do not want to fall prey to over-commercialization. We’ve celebrated enough Valentine’s together (ten and counting!) that chocolate and roses seem thoughtless, instead of thoughtful. This got me thinking about what three presents are perfect for both him and her.
I wanted to get away from the more standard type of Valentines Day articles that seem to surround gifts and hot sex, so I asked this question on my Facebook page: What topic should I write about for Valentines Day?

As you read this I am moving into my new place, which is AMAZING. I have been waiting for this day for at least 3 years and am especially excited because I’m moving into a building that I’ve dreamed about living in for years. I am so grateful to be ALIVE and empowered to create a life that I absolutely love. It wasn’t always like this though; I used to be stuck and afraid. One excuse I used to use frequently to stop me was wondering what others thought of me, aka judgment.
I believe that a woman will always find that sexual chemistry is key--with the man of her dreams, a life partner or even a date. When a woman meets a man, within the first few sentences she already knows if they will “click.” It is not always about coincidences or about subtleties with a woman. Sometimes a woman will tune you out completely in order to focus on the cues that you send with your body language. They say actions speak louder than words and they are right. Actions do speak louder than words.
Let’s face it, for most guys, approaching a girl is no easy task. But figuring out when and how many times to call her before you can label her a bad apple can be even more of a challenge.

Reality check: Would the girl you are dating want to date herself? The scary thing is, most girls would not want to date themselves, because of their age, their immaturity, and wanting to play the field like men do. It is so hard being a woman trying to date, especially if living in a major city, having just relocated from a small town. This is the time when the super-slut comes out. It’s like being a kid in a candy store.
Advent is the season Christians observe leading up to Christmas. During this season, Christians traditionally focus on hope, peace, joy and love. These very same themes can also be important things to focus on in our relationships in order to enhance our relationship whether it is at the beginning early stage or is more mature. This focus can occur during Advent or can be something that is worked on by a couple at any time. For each of these ideas, here is two lessons you can take from Advent to understand the
Let’s see if we can figure this out together. You have the altar, the man and you. What is the one variable you can change in this equation?
