On our third date, he told me he had sex with hundreds of prostitutes…while he was married. You might be picturing a toothless unemployable criminal, but he was a charming, intelligent, attractive, and successful lawyer. I had fallen hard for him in a short time period. His confession blindsided me. I immediately wondered the obvious — why would you admit that to someone you are dating unless you were in self-sabotage mode? I asked a few friends. One friend's reply was enligh
Ladies, when we pull away, it’s instinctive for men to chase us. But sometimes this results on us pushing even further away. It can be frustrating for men when things turn around. One day, we are sending flirty texts in the middle of the day, and available whenever they want to hang out, but all of a sudden, we can get distant. We begin to take up to two days to reply to texts. And when men ask us to hang out, we have excuses like, “Ooh… I can’t make it; it’s my cousin’s birt
Winston Churchill once said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” What is your attitude—right now, at this moment—toward your spouse? Your kids? Your supervisor? Your employee? Toward life in general? Are you feeling . . . like a victim or a victor? ungrateful or appreciative? bitter or tender? angry or joyful? betrayed or beloved? critical or congratulatory? negative or positive? pessimistic or hopeful? resentful or content? ON A DATE THIS WEEKEND??? 🛑
Do you worry much? One of the things I see a lot in my coaching practice is worry about relationship decisions and relationship mistakes from the past. Many of the women I talk to worry they’ve made the wrong choices. Stayed in the wrong relationship too long. Let go of the wrong guy. Put off looking for Mr. Right until it was too late. They’re worried they’re going to pay a steep price for what they’ve done. They don’t know if they’ll ever get the love they desire, and it’s
You’d think it would be so easy. If someone texts you, text them back.
If someone calls you, call them back.
If someone DMs you, message them back. So why, then, have so few men got the message? Angelika was sure her new love interest was ignoring her. She’d left him a number of messages on Facebook, and he never replied. Lola wrote lovely texts to her guy, full of exclamation points and emojis, and all she ever got back were an “ok” or “sure” or “c u then.” Callie would call
The first rule when it comes to texting women is to always be straightforward.
Here’s a simple truth: From the moment you exchanged numbers with her, she already knew you wanted to hang out and have a good time. If you decide to wait two days or a week before contacting her, thinking she’ll be filled with excitement when she hears from you, you’re simply delaying the inevitable. Besides, from the time you got her contact info to the time you eventually contact her, she would
Each human being is hardwired to find certain traits attractive. In our youth, those things are different — they’re part of evolution, really. Science teaches us that our reptilian brains want us to seek out partners for reproduction, searching for the mate who will help us make more replicas of ourselves. But over time, those qualities are less necessary and, also over time, often less attractive. A well-regarded study on mate value from Mexico State University notes that wo
The lipstick, the eyeliner, the blush, the mascara, the foundation, the eyeshadow, the eyebrow pencil, the concealer, the primer, the bronzer, the contour, the highlights, the works. Did I miss anything? Makeup is so complicated. There are just too many things to keep track of. It’s so hard having to be a woman. You have to remember a lot of this stuff and your efforts don’t always pay off. So many girls will go overboard with their makeup to the point that men will think it’
Attraction is a very tricky thing. Yes, there might be certain standards of attractiveness that are present the world over. However, it’s always a “to each his own” kind of situation. We all have our own specific tastes and preferences. We aren’t always going to like the same things. And that’s okay. We are all individual human beings with our own personal likes and dislikes. That’s why even though you might like a particular person, not everyone you know is going to like tha
The digital age is, for the most part, uncharted territory. One person leading the exploration of this new romantic frontier is Writer, Director and Filmmaker Jonah Feingold. In this interview, Mr. Feingold gives us his take on what makes a good Romantic Comedy, why it’s important to be transparent, and how dating is more of a game than it ever has been before. On his work in the Romantic Comedy film space: At the heart of every movie is relationships. I want to make films th
I was lucky to grow up with two parents who pushed me and my brothers equally to achieve our goals in life. My father always told me that, in order to be successful, I had to work at things — the second I slacked off or stopped advocating for myself, I’d be surpassed by someone who hadn’t slowed down. So I took that advice and applied it to my entire life: I landed my first job four months before graduating college; I shifted my career focus from beauty to relationships; and
Self-love gives you the courage to walk away Most of us have been in situations where we’ve loved someone enough to work hard at keeping the relationship moving forward and hurdling through all obstacles. Others of us have made the decision to throw in the towel, knowing that loving ourselves is much more important than continuing to deal with a relationship that brings more negative feelings than positive. I’m in the group that threw in the towel. My ex and I had a child tog
Well, we can not travel, yet, it does not mean that we can not escape the routine of our flats or homes and treat our partners. Here are 4 romantics getaways in London. Enjoy and stay safe! The Mandrake, Fitzrovia What makes the Mandrake so special is its truly immersive atmosphere – guests enter through a dark tunnel and emerge into a rainforest lobby complete with a vaulted ceiling and showstopping chandelier. Book into a room here for an experience that will tantalise the
Some red flags dudes may see that you don’t. I’ve often heard the phrase, “It’s so hard to meet guys.” Or similar sentiments from my lovelorn friends. Yet there are so many people looking for love in the same city, town, or small English hamlet. So from where does this belief that it is impossible to meet anyone in the real world arise? Have you ever felt the same way? Sorry to break it to you, but you are mostly likely part of the problem. Without meaning to you’ve sabotaged
In need of some rest and relaxation? We can’t blame you. Whether it’s the post-holiday blues or the grim weather, the start of any year tends to be a bit of a challenge. But fear not. We’ve got just the thing to get you through. Honfleur, France Normandy is another place that should be better known for its spa breaks. Tucked away in Honfleur, a port city in Normandy, is La Ferme Saint Simeon Hotel Spa, which was once frequented by impressionist artists. Drawing on the natural
Get ready for a better response rate. Early in my career as a copywriter, I learned something useful: If I wrote something that did not work, it was not in my best interest to write the exact same thing again. And yet, it’s what texters everywhere do when trying to get a response from someone they’re into. Hey Hey Hey Stop it. You sound like the mashup of a 7-year-old and a horse. Never fear, my clueless friend. If your texts constantly get crickets in response, you have come
AND IT IS NOT QUITEE LIKE IN THE MOVIES! Books and movies have long perpetuated the idea that there’s this one single person who’s destined to be with you forever. This idea doesn’t always seem very realistic and the concept of soulmates can be a polarizing one, especially because everyone has its own definition. But if you have a not-so-strict definition of the term soulmate — someone who you know instinctively, who gives you a sense of peace yet allows you to grow as a pers

The secret to spice up your sex life Making porn with your partner is the perfect way to spice up your sex. With that being said, it takes a great deal of trust and consent between both participants.

The best thing about making porn with your partner is no one needs to know except you and them. There’s something extremely sensual about watching yourself be vulnerable an
My boyfriend and I made the mad decision to share a place of residence about four months ago (just over a year into our relationship). We merged eggcup collections, bought new sheets, adopted a puppy. We made bottom-dents in our sofa, crowded the shower floor with bottles, learned to wake up together each morning. If you’ve ever lived with a partner, you know all the little joys and quirks and squabbles. If you haven’t — well, please enjoy a chronological succession of the th
