That said, we live on a part of the planet that is not as subject to some of the on-going violent and destructive forces found in other parts of the world. From a physical safety point of view, those of us who have the privilege of reading words like these about safety, tend to be actually relatively safe — at least in a physical way.
How can I be sure infidelity won't happen again? It was probably quite painful and difficult to discover that your partner was having an affair.

Accepting a compliment, especially from a man, has never been easy for me. In fact, I probably spent most of my life shutting their compliments down before they could even get the words out.

Every once in a while, I meet a potential client whom I consider to be a dating snob. What is a dating snob? Someone who thinks they are too good for everyone out there and would rather sit home alone or hang out with their married friends than mingle among other singles and subject themselves to singles events.
Hell yes! Believe it or not, the woman is in control and it is she who dictates the energy. It’s unbelievable, but it is true! Understanding this fact and learning how to use it to your advantage can dramatically improve your sex life and your partner’s sexual enjoyment. A woman can make a man feel like King Kong or ding dong depending on what she says to him in bed. Why do you think men go to strip clubs?

by Julie Robinson When it comes to sex, there are more than a few questions that make me squirm in my seat: What’s your “number”? Do you ever fuck girls? Is mine the biggest you’ve ever seen, baby? Who’s your Daddy?—they all leave me a bit perplexed about how truthful I want to be without having to launch into a full-blown explanation about my answer.

If any of you saw "The Hunger Games" recently, you were in for a bloodbath — a very entertaining, very well-produced bloodbath. I'm a huge fan of Suzanne Collins, and the movie was one of the best I've seen in a long time.

Spring has always been a magical time of the year because it is nature's illustration of whatever appears to be "dead and without life" can come alive once again.
