Your partner is supposed to be there for you to make life's hardships easier, but do you ever feel like he makes it more difficult? If you want your knight in shining armor back, here's some must-read marriage advice: stop trying to make him into someone he's not.
WOMEN AND MEN
Did you know that 67 percent of divorces are initiated by women? Marriage educator and author Lesli Doares lets us know why blaming men is counterproductive to a successful relationship — and why it's important for women to take some responsibility.
Hi Lovelies! Today I decided to do something new – and record an audio of my blog post. It’s short, sweet and to the point. So whether you’re on the computer, phone or at the gym – you can listen to it whenever you’d like! Check it out here: http://bit.ly/153IL6v
If I could have sex with a woman by giving her a"Promise Ring," I would do it. It’s like leasing a car. You get a new car, you have the option to buy, and you take the car off the market. Have you ever had someone say to you, “I won’t do it again. I promise.” I rest my case.
So here's the thing ladies . . . if you don't feel good about yourself, you will not feel good about a man or any relationship you create. You will not value yourself and what you have to offer. You will accept poor behavior because you do not feel good about you. You do not feel you deserve to be treated well.
While indulging my craving for french-fried deliciousness; I saw a handsome 40-something man in perfectly pressed grey slacks, button down shirt, and designer leather shoes walk up to the counter. After a brief flirtatious exchange with an extremely attractive and vivacious 20-something behind the register, he ordered his meal. When she called his number he seized the bag with a wink and a smile. I watched him exit through the double doors; nearly 5 feet from his freshly detailed sports coupe, he slowed his stride and began to shake his head.
The word relationship scares the crap out of otherwise grown, capable and responsible men and women alike. And really all I have to say is NONSENSE. Think about it. Haven't you known at least one person who frets about someone they're dating, subjecting you to hours of “uh God, what is he/she thinking”--only to end with “but it's not like I want a relationship or anything”. But in all fairness, there's no “or anything” about it. What your friend is saying is that they don't want a serious relationship when they are in fact already in one, albeit a casual one. So what's the problem?
A kiss is one of the most intimate things you can do. Many men have won many ladies with a good kiss. Even Disney knows you can live happily-ever-after, if the right man kisses the right woman in just the right way. Many men (and some women) view kissing as a prelude to sex, rather than the ushering of deeper connection, be it emotional, spiritual, or sexual. Humans instinctively know kissing is intimate,that’s why almost every romantic movie culminates and consummates with one amazing kiss.
Breaking up is hard to do. What can be even harder to do is when you feel like you want to get back together with your ex, especially if he doesn't want the same things. But is it a good idea to get back together with him? And why do you want to as well? Our expert reveals what could possibly come from this.
The Depth of a Man I was greeted this morning by a love note from my beloved. He had written an essay about love, and read it to me. Of his love for me, he said, “It is deep and profound, like the ocean." I felt undulating waves of affection rise up through me as I heard his words. I embraced his tenderness, his love, and the depth and glory of him. Every woman wants to be loved this way!
As promised, here is the second installment in my exposé on men’s dirty little secrets. As I’m sure many of you know, men are visual beings. We are motivated to action and stimulated most by our sense of sight. As such, when we see something provocative it can have a profound effect on us. And by profound effect, I mean, we get an erection. It’s automatic, we think very little about it and are fairly accustomed to it, as we have regularly had to deal with this “affliction” since we were but mere lads. And all o
Everyone is a mixed bag, the kindest person will become irate at times, and the meanest person can be found every now and then throwing some change at a homeless person. Dating, that effervescent mix of loneliness, want, desire and impatience, leads to blurry vision. How do you know when the person who is sharply ordering that second dessert to the slow waitress is mean or just having a bad day?
Question: I am fairly young, 23, and I've been hooking up with this guy for 7 months now. When we started hooking up he stated that he didn’t want a girlfriend, and he still feels the same way. Recently I told him that I was developing feelings for him. To protect me from getting hurt he decided that we should end things, saying that he didn’t want to hurt me in the long run (which he believed was inevitable). Knowing that he said that and that he was capable of doing such a hurtful thing,
Question: I have been with my boyfriend for over two years. He often complains about my seventeen-year-old daughter. When we’re together she will sometimes tease him or say something that bothers him, and he will get up and leave, then call me and tell me why he left. I have spoken with my daughter and she doesn’t feel that she’s done anything wrong. What should I do? ...Cherise
In the middle of a serious conversation a few weeks ago, my husband got up to get himself a cup of water. I was incensed! Here we were, having this serious discussion and he has a sudden urge for water that he couldn't control? In a fury I tell him, "I would never have done that to you!" I felt totally dismissed by him. You know what else he does? He sleeps when he is tired, and he goes to the bathroom when he has the urge. For women … these actions are revolutionary. For men, setting aside these needs would be insanity.
