Even though dealing with all of the challenges that come along with connecting with someone can be pretty hard, it doesn't mean that we should throw in the deal just becaue the going is getting tough. No matter how difficult it gets, you have to remember to give it your all—especially if you think that your relationship is worth fighting for.
Even though your palms are sweating and it's getting harder to speak, you've finally mustered up the courage to confront the cute guy that you've been crushing on for months. It's almost as if time stops for those first few seconds after you push your nerves aside and just tell him how you feel; and when he says that he feels the same, you can't help the smile that breaks. But even though you both seem to be on the same page, there's a difference between having the guts to be open about your feelings and actually being ready for a relationship.
Whether you're in a relationship right now or are happily single, you probably know what it's like to feel romantic love and loss. Even though we've all heard the adage "Love conquers all", it's hard not to believe that it's true when we see how powerful it can be in our own lives. If you've ever been in love before, you know that there's no greater feeling in the world than being with someone who just gets you and respects you. That's what makes finding a partner who you can be yourself with so special. This may sound crazy but falling in love can bring out different trays that you never knew knew you had. It can also change you for the better.

Trying to shake off our nerves that just won't seem to go away as we get ready for a first date can be pretty hard (not to mention frustrating). From figuring out what to wear to where we should meet up, jumping right into the dating field sometimes feels way more complicated than it should be. It doesn't matter if we're testing out the waters for the first time or are total pros at the game, we could all use some tips on how to have the perfect date (that'll hopefully lead to more).
So, we're pretty sure that we've all been told that if we want to find the perfect guy, we have to be willing to work on ourselves. Even though that is sound advice (when taken in the right context), it can get pretty out of hand. For starters, is there even such thing as being "perfect"? What's even worse is that the common misconception that the only way to find the right person who will want to date you is to completely change who you are can be really hurtful to our love lives because it doesn't really encourage us to put our best feet forward. Love isn't about pretending to be someone you're not.
As kids, there's no doubt that we're influenced by everything around us. So, it makes sense that watching the dynamics between our parents can have a lasting effect on how we see family and love.
Alice is going on her first date with Timmy and she's as nervous as a model airplane enthusiast in an airplane full of enthusiastic models. What should she talk about? Where should they go? What should she do at the end of the date? She checks in with a few lady magazines for some tips and tricks on what to do on a first date.
After everything we've been through in our relationship, that moment when we finally hit our breaking point can be really heartbreaking. Even though we may have been with our partner for a long time, the fact that things have not been going so well can make us feel like enough is enough. Having to lie awake at night, overthinking every single problem seriously sucks; that just makes it even harder to figure out whether our relationship is worth saving or if we should just throw the towel in and walk away. Sometimes, love isn't enough to save a sinking ship—But that doesn't mean that we can't try if we really think that there's a possibility that it'll make a difference.
All of those dating rules that people keep saying that we should follow are totally bogus! This may be an unpopular opinion but there’s no such such as giving too much information on your first date. If you want to find love, you've got to be completely honest.
There's no question that the older you get, the pressure to be in a committed relationship or get married by a certain age will pretty much have a constant presence in your life. But do you really have to have a boyfriend on your birthday just because the big 4-0 [insert fabulous age] has rolled around? Contrary to popular belief, your shelf life has not expired.
Expert power couple Carl Studna and Cynthia James join forces to discuss what factors determine a successful and long lasting relationship. Along their 15 year marriage they've gained some essential knowledge on how to establish and maintain a successful relationship.
Ladies, we've got to be honest with you. It goes without saying that trying to find the right guy to settle down with can be super frustrating. It doesn't help that this whole idea of falling head over heels for Prince Charming and waiting for him to sweep us off our feet is pretty unrealistic. The crazy thing is that we become SO dedicated to finding love that we forget that just because we're in a relationship doesn't mean that we can't have our own life. In fact, having something that we love to do is super sexy!
Based on our own experiences, we know that the dating scene is rough out there. Instead of meeting men who are both secure and emotionally mature, we sometimes run into guys who pretty much act like they are still in high school—Which is seriously frustrating. But even though these less than stellar dates may make it seem like all guys are immature, the fact is that there are still emotionally mature men out there. If we want to find a great guy (who acts his age and not his shoe size), we've got to be upfront about our wants and needs.
There's no doubt that we love our parents. But we can admit that they can sometimes be a bit insufferable, especially when it comes to our love lives. Even though it's incredibly sweet that our parents are so invested in making sure that we find love and settle down with the right person, the pressure can end up becoming super intense. To be honest, having them constantly cross the line is just plain frustrating. Just because we're single doesn't mean that we aren't actively looking (or that we need the help). Now, convincing our mothers that we're happy with our lives (not to mention saying that without it coming across in a really negative way) is the hard part.
