A very attractive single mom recently told me this story: She had met a man and felt sure he was the man of her dreams. There was a synchronicity about their meeting she could not ignore; the chemistry was electric and the sex, she said, was the best she had ever had—in her life, I might add. It had to be love, she gushed!
If you had showed me this Time Magazine cover, featuring a mother breastfeeding her toddler who is STANDING UP, one year ago, I would have laughed. "Not me! That won't be me! I will breastfeed until she's around one. 10 months maybe?" Yet there I was the other day, nursing an almost one-year-old who was...standing up.
Should E.L. James have made the Time 100? Not everyone likes women kissing in the Urban Outfitters catalog. Why do bankers buy sex? Dudes, start talking about feelings. Face it, he's never going to propose. A new dating site hooks you up based on Twitter and Facebook usage. Men fake orgasms too. How to keep your guy friend from falling for you. How much masturbating is too much? Who is the funniest lady out there?
When life bumps you along into a roadblock, understanding the true nature of time will save you a boat load of trouble. Every time you are faced with outer events that repeat in cycles and patterns, you have the chance to change the course of your destiny by the response you choose to make.
What makes women happy? Believe it or not, it tends to be the little things that make women the most satisfied in relationships. We spoke with Dr. M. Gary Neuman, family counselor and author of "Connect to Love," who, based on his research, gave us some insights on what women want.

I'm lucky. I'll say that right off the bat. I have a job that recognizes that I have a life outside of work. That is a rare and magical gift. I don't know what I would do without that. I know a lot of women aren't so lucky. They have to support their families financially, care for them emotionally and protect their physical well-being, all while maintaining jobs that make it hard for them to be the kind of parents they want to be. It makes a tough situation tougher.
Most think of time management, but I like to think of it as time mastery. When you master time instead of managing it, you create time instead being a victim to it.
