If you are not getting the relationship outcomes you want, there may be one thing that’s getting in your way of happily ever after….
“There’s a lot of people you can love. There’s not that many people you can build a life with.” Key observations from relationship therapist, Esther Perel.
As children, we picked up the good and bad habits of our caretakers, and without even knowing it, started to mirror such habits until they became our own.
Before you dish out your two cents, here are three things you need to know about giving and receiving advice.
Studies show that friends infect each other. In fact, each additional happy friend boosts our levels of happiness by nine percent.
A lot of men only saw me for beauty and did not value my personality or the depth behind me as a human being. Such men are attracted to the social stigma that beauty is power.
One day you will meet someone, and he will love everything about you that you were so sure was unlovable.
Want to spot the people who are toxic to your life? Here are a few types of friends you might want to avoid…
The more you wait the more special it is and the more willing he will likely be willing to work harder to win you over.
Love really happens when you least expect it . I definitely was not expecting to meet Mike after a 20-hour train ride. You can’t put so much pressure on yourself. But you have to be open to meeting people and going out.
Being in a state of lust comes and goes and is not necessarily a constant. Give each other space when one of you doesn’t feel like being intimate. And when you do, celebrate it.
We do special things for each other not only on holidays and birthdays.
Ask yourself when the last time you made out was. Sex is initiated by making out, not a peck on the lips.
When you are in a relationship and you want to go out more than you want to stay with your partner, it’s a sign you aren’t ready to settle down.
The right person will make you wonder “how” instead of question “why”. If you often catch yourself asking: “why am I with him?” he is likely not the right fit for you.
Don’t give everything away right in the beginning. You have to portion it out and keep us coming back for more or else we get bored quickly.
If you conclude you are not with the right person, instead of dragging it out, honor the fact that the person has a life to live and a love that’s waiting for them.
What it really means when you say “Don’t judge me”.
Recently we interviewed former bachelor about town, Chris Neary on his thoughts on changing from bachelorhood to fatherhood. This week, we sit down with…
Sexual attraction can be built in time. When you spend time with someone and draw out the process of dating you can see the person as a whole, versus purely on a physical level.
There’s always that guy (or girl) at a dinner or party. The one who always shows up late, the one who flakes last minute, the one underpays the bill, the one who constantly hijacks the conversation…
The bill is a non-issue. It’s a nice gesture. If they do pay it is appreciated but if they don’t, it’s not a deal breaker.
When you do ‘come out’, you understand that there is a vast variety of people and different relationship models that work.
If someone doesn’t bring out the best in you they are not for you.
Here are some tricks on how to host a great dinner party.
Looks are important to only an extent. Pretty is physical. Sexy is an attitude.
Sometimes you will do things for love without rhyme or reason. And sometimes love is the only reason you need.
Take time to know someone, let things evolve. The best relationships are the ones that are built on friendship and care first.
Another weekend, another one-night stand. The cute guy you slept with from the bar still hasn’t called. The guys that do contact you only…
Love your life first and foremost. The people who are meant to fall into that will come.
What you need to know about how NOT to argue.
Don’t become jaded by rejection. You may have to meet a lot of people but hey, it only takes one.
You decide how you want to show up. You choose who you want to be in that moment. What values do you stand for, and when you witness a breach of those values do you take a stand or do you sit back?
Go outside of your comfort zone … try new places. Talk to all kinds of people.
Attention can be put in the same bucket, but know how to recognize the wrong kind of attention from the wrong type of guy.
It’s important to know the difference between what you want and what you need. You can compromise on a want, but not on a need.
