Written by guest author Brian J from The Beta Male Chronicles found on www.datingloveandsextips.com If you're looking for ways to get him to commit, I believe hearing from a commitment phobic man who has "been there done that"; may open HIS eyes to what life may be like 16 years in the future.
TRUST IN RELATIONSHIPS
When a couple goes through a divorce process, many times there is the assumption by various divorce professionals involved with them that they are seeking a divorce. While on some level that may be true, it is frequently far from being their main goal. Quite often the true agenda is hidden, disguised, or not clearly stated. In my experience these agendas represent 80% of the divorce process, while the actual tasks are no more than 20% of work.
When January rolls around, tradition suggests making all sorts of resolutions. However, they all have one thing on common: They get broken. Statistically, 25 percent of New Year's resolutions are broken in the first week, and 90 percent by the end of February!
Caroline would like to say that she is a trusting person, but she’s not. She can’t bring herself to trust one of the most important people in her life-- her own husband. Before she met her husband Andy, she was in a nasty and painful relationship. Her ex stole money from her and cheated again and again and again.
In a recent interview, Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake Harper in the wildly popular television show Two And A Half Men, called the show "filth" and encouraged people to stop watching it. And while he has since apologized for using the word "filth," I agree with Jones to the extent that his show portrays a family whose members share a common inability to maintain coupled relationships.
Some say flirting is harmless: some of those same people would argue that engulfing a male body part in one's mouth isn’t sex (we won’t mention names, given the trend to repent), while others insist that the mere thought of indiscretion is cheating. Given our culture’s penchant for bending the English language (and morals) to suit our purposes, wouldn’t it be nice if we had a few less erroneous benchmarks for foul play? Here are a few to consider:
The song, R-E-S-P-E-C-T, was made famous by Aretha Franklin, and she sure had it right as far as it being a really important aspect in relationships. But as you may have guessed, respect is only one of the main ingredients to building a solid foundation. As a relationship expert, I’d like to discuss another very important foundational aspect to any solid relationship: trust. The online dictionary defines it as “a firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing.” I have no
We all had that one person that got away. Whether it was timing, or they moved, or just things got to hard because of one of their lives. But how many people do you want to say in your life that, they were the one and they just got away from no fault of their own, but because of you?
When you are wrong in a relationship grow a pair and admit it! At the end of the day it will save your relationship if you want it saved. The worst thing you can do is argue over something you do not want to admit that you did. In the end that person will appreciate you a lot more when you admit it and apologize for it.
If you've been around sex addiction meetings long enough, you've no doubt heard people talking about "disclosure." While there are many different ways to go through the disclosure process, I thought I'd spend a few minutes discussing what disclosure is all about and why you might consider going through it.
This past month, I have been enrolled in a 7 week therapist’s course given by Melissa Orlov on the ADHD effects on marriage. Melissa, who is an expert on this subject, and who has written the book (by the same name) The ADHD Effects on Marriage, offers its’ readers one of the most comprehensive and clearly written books that I have read on this subject.
Peggy had been married to James for 14 years when she first consulted with me for help with her relationship and her anxiety. "I can't stand being in this marriage anymore. We have two wonderful children and I don't want to break up this family, but I'm miserable and anxious much of the time. I feel like I'm always walking on eggshells and I can't be myself."
Bad news: Americans have serious trust issues. Of course, that's a broad statement, so allow me to elaborate: We don't trust our partners, which leads to snoop through their cell phones as a result.
Learning how to connect with an emotionally unavailable man is like learning how to gain the trust of a beaten dog.
