That’s right, I said the “F” word…FIGHT!!! This misunderstood, undervalued and feared experience that people avoid and couples run from has got a bad rap. The possibility of “the fight” stirs up so much for people and yet, without it the passion wanes. The point that I want you to hear is that fighting is not bad, unhealthy & does not mean it’s beginning of the end.

If you’re in a serious relationship with a man, chances are you’ve nagged him about taking out the trash, throwing away his junk mail, making a dentist appointment or exercising. The list goes on and on with the same conclusion: Most men procrastinate. And they are even less likely to accomplish a task with a woman over their shoulder complaining. Although it may be tempting to fly into a rage next time you trip over your man’s wet towel, it’s best to keep your cool. Here are some ways to avoid acting like his mother.

Dear Dr. Romance: I'm in my mid-twenties and a professional. I recently broke up from a bad relationship with my fiancee, and lost everything. Its been sometime and I've moved on I'm doing well, but find myself attracted to a woman that is everything that I'm looking for, almost ten years my senior. She works in the same field, and understands me completely. She is someone I could marry and settle down with, but with pains from previous engagement I'm terrified to recommit. What should I do? Dear Reader:
I got a note from a woman who said she’s a Feminist and not interested in what I teach about how to have a deeply loving relationship with a good man. But she was searching for help in the relationship arena, which tells me it’s not going the way she’d like. Duh! What this kind of woman doesn’t realize is that she’s sacrificing having a good relationship so she can be ‘right.’ That’s because Feminism pits women against men, where the women are trying to be better ‘men’ than the men. That doesn’t work for most men.
Once upon a time, I received a phone call from an entrepreneur who told me that she was going to build the best online dating site ever: Fuego Connect. The problem with dating sites, she said, was that you have to sift through so many people who are nothing like you. Wouldn't it be great to have a website where everyone on the site shared your same passions?
Falling in love can come from two different inner states. When you fall in love from the wounded self – the ego self – you are in love with how the other person loves you. You are handing over to the other person the responsibility for your self-worth and wellbeing, and if he or she does a good job of attending to you in the way you want to be attended to, then you may say you are “in love.” However, it is not so much the person you love, but how he or she loves you and connects with you. When it feels as if you can’t live without the other person, it is emotional dependency. The part of you that is ‘in love’ is really a child or adolescent who is needy for love because you are not giving love to yourself or to others. There is an emptiness inside that you expect someone else to fill, because you are not taking responsibility for your own feelings of aliveness, joy, passion and self-worth. You are attaching your worth to another’s love, which is why you can’t live without that person.

Baseball season is winding down, but there’s a lot couples can learn from the game to help keep their romance alive. In the beginning of a relationship, hardly anybody complains about romance, since you’re still on Cloud 9. And if you don’t know how to keep things flowing, it can eventually start to die down the longer you’re together. Here are five tips to rejuvenate and enhance you and your honey’s relationship and keep it as romantic as possible:
If laughter is the best medicine, Mary Ellen was seriously overdosing. She had always had a habit of laughing when she was nervous, and first dates were nothing if not a hugely nerve-wracking experience. “I laughed too hard at their jokes, and I giggled inappropriately,” she recalls. On one date she’ll never forget, she laughed out loud when her date told her about his dog getting hit by a car. “I can’t explain it,” she winces.
It’s been said that if you’ll love yourself, no one else will, either. Maybe that’s not quite true, but when it comes to falling in love, it certainly is true that you will have an easier time of it — and will be much more likely to find lasting, true love — if you love yourself BEFORE you try to find that “special someone.”
Most men don’t want to admit they might be going through midlife crisis. When a man does, it’s meaningful. I wrote a book on the topic, and right before I was ready to publish it, my computers were stolen and that book as well. I need to write it again, but first, because I have so many women who are begging for it, I’ve got to finish Feminine Grace.
The holiday season is almost here. It seems like yesterday we were making our New Year’s resolutions for 2011: to lose weight, maybe, or get out of debt, find a better job, find love. Was 2011 the year all your romantic dreams came true? Or do you look back on the year with regret? Was it full of exciting, intelligent men or missed opportunities? Laughter and genuine connections or awkward situations? Dates that make you cringe even now?
Jennifers Story: Jennifer took a few years after her divorce to work up the nerve to start dating again. When she did, her first dates were complete disasters. And they only got worse from there. Dating over 40 was nothing like dating at 20. She was so keenly aware of her inexperience with men that she started every date almost too nervous to speak.
When you are dating and want to find love, wouldn’t it be great to have a magic mirror where you could see your future with that person? You wouldn’t have to guess about whether or not you would have a “Happily Ever After”. It would play out before you in that magic mirror. Or what about a crystal ball? You could take your date to a gypsy and she could sit you down and let you know whether or not you should even bother ordering dessert.
