May-December Romance

There have been a lot of discussions in the media in the last week about Donald Sterling’s relationship with V. Stiviano.  One of the commentators on a prime time news panel discussion even went as far as to comment that because Donald Sterling is 50 years V. Stiviano's senior, he must be a sexual predator (!!) What made the statement even more ironic was that it followed right after the same commentator’s defense of V.

How to Stop Laying Guilt Trips on Others

In my first article for YourTango, I talked about how to stop being taken on a guilt trip. In this article, I'm talking about how a guilt tripper can ditch the trips. Of course, before we can let go of any behavior we first need to understand the purpose that behavior serves. When we understand this, we can then choose a more constructive behavior that's going to get us what we want--rather than backfire bigtime the way guilt trips always do.

Showing Love Through Touch

When I say touch I’m not referring to touch of a sexual nature either. Touching each other is a way to communicate feelings in addition to your words. Think about how much a simple hug can do for you. Some people are naturals at the art of touching and some need to put some effort into it. If you are the type of person who is a natural at expressing your feelings through touch, you will probably find that touch is something that is also very important to you.

How To Grow Your Masculine Balls Back Part 4

I am going to start this article by making a statement that I feel that ALL women need to listen too.

When A Selfie Becomes More Than Just A Selfie

There is a ton of research on the negative effects of social media on both friendships and relationships. Often I find myself nodding my head in agreement in front of my monitor, as if to tell the article’s author, “Yes, you are totally correct!” And, generally, they do have some good topical advice on the subject. But, there is an opposite point of view: sometimes, social media can be helpful instead of harmful.  And this includes turning the selfie into an usie*.

Are Relationships Ruled by the Heart or the Mind?

This essay brings to your attention the two very frequent scenarios of behaviors in relationships. A lot of people go through similar experiences and wish to change the situation. I suggest a different view at the problem, in fact, I shouldn’t call it a problem, rather an adaptive mechanism of your mind.

My Lucrative “Play Date” with a Very Rich Older Man

The phone rang at 11:45 p.m., just as I was drifting off to sleep. It was my new billionaire sugar daddy, Michael. “Hello?” I asked still half asleep. “What are you doing?” Michael asked chuckling. “You aren’t sleeping are you?

My friend and his ex-sugar baby, Kate, said he was exhausting, and boy was she right.

Can’t Find Love? Intuition to the Rescue!

You can avoid losers and heartache by listening to your intuition instead of ignoring it. Time and again, I hear my clients say to me the following: “Something told me he wasn’t who he said he was.” “I had a feeling that he was cheating on me.” “I knew I should have never become involved with him.”
