Take a trip down our favorite quirky, hilarious female lead, Liz Lemon’s romantic memory lane.
Our favorite glasses wearing, junk food loving, nerd-chic heroine has officially taken her bow. And after seven years of laughs, what better way to pay tribute to the comic 30 Rock series than to take a trip down Liz Lemon’s romantic memory lane. The show paved the way for some new funny girl’s like Zooey Dechanel’s quirky Jess and Mindy Kalling’s adorably disheveled Mindy. So in Tina Fey’s immortal words, “Ain’t no party like a Liz Lemon party cause a Liz Lemon party is mandatory.”
Ditching that list of deal-breakers could help reboot your love life.
I hear singles complain about the hardships of dating and being lonely. They will blame everybody else for not living up to their expectations, but the reality is that they have closed themselves off to many possibilities by failing to be flexible with their preferences. Newsflash! This is the type of B.S that will keep you single!
Having the proper expectations about your marriage is important for it's success!
Aside from being a relationship expert in private practice, I also teach at a local university. Recently, I had the opportunity to teach a class on Relationships and Marriage.

And what happens? You end up getting disappointed a year later, two years later, whatever it might be.

Don't See Romantic Potential...But Is It OK to Continue?
I met a guy last year online. While we seemed to have little in common, he expressed interest and I responded.
After communicating via email and phone for a couple weeks, we met in-person. While meeting didn't change my initial impression regarding having little in common, it was an enjoyable evening and I did feel attracted to him.
For a lasting relationship you need to be completely happy with who you are and good self-esteem!
Different people have different views when it comes to the idea of a romantic relationship. One clinical study stated that romantic love is basically one's unique emotional state of great calm, intense excitement, and improved well-being when the partner is present.
Scientists also believe that a romantic and loving relationship is powerful but an irrational addiction or attraction. They mainly characterize the feeling as a temporary phenomenon that is mostly comprised of sexual fantasies that easily diminish over time.
