Why Jumping Right Into Bed On Your First Date Is A Bad Idea

We all know that the first date is always the most important date. After all, it's pretty much the foundation of a new relationship. Sometimes, it goes so well that you two feel really connected and want to take things up a notch. This the moment when you'll have to make a choice: Do you risk your budding relationship by having sex or wait until you've gone on a few more dates?

Seriously, Are There Any Emotionally Mature Men Left?

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.

Here's The Secret To Making Your Marriage Last

There's no question that all relationships take work. Even though it's a really hard thing to hear, we sometimes have to realize that simply loving someone isn't enough to make a marriage last.

With the divorce statistics stacked up so high, it makes us wonder if there really are ways to make our relationships work.
