Because once you fall in, it’s hard to get out. Wouldn’t it be great if relationships got easier? If, once the sizzle subsided, we just boarded a luxury train that took us on a journey to Happy Ever After. Especially if they served cocktails. 🍹 We all know it doesn’t work that way — far, far from it. That beyond the sizzle is where the “fun” really starts, the terrain gets more challenging (or more boringly predictable) and our relationships truly test us. And sometimes the
We crossed paths frequently in a small, shared gym in a sprawling office building.
Scott was a 37-year-old architect. He was cute, with pronounced, proportional, masculine facial features. He stood about six feet tall, had a thin but built frame, formed from his rolling calendar of upcoming triathlons. We frequently rode recumbent bikes next to each other, that was where the majority of our interactions took place, half-winded conversations about our relative status quos. Sco
We all know the answer 😉 As someone who has had experience in being cheated on and has saw countless of her friends gone through the same thing, my mind wondered to the question: “Are men or women more likely to cheat?”I recently got in touch with a very handy and interesting website that can provide a private investigation on husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, significant other, etc., called Buzz Humble.

Et oui, yellow flag are a thing too!!!! Beware! You’ve started a new relationship, everything is perfect. Your partner is caring, wants to spend time with you, covers you with thoughtful gifts. This is the right one, you’re thinking to yourself. Finally! No more dating apps, no more awkward first dates, you found it. Fast forward to a year later.

With so many potential matches right at our literal fingertips, it’s easy to become both overwhelmed by the number of choices and underwhelmed by the lack of connection between swipes. Now, I know this is not a new thought and that I’m not saying anything original here. Dating apps, as well as modern dating, have both been widely researched, reported on, and discussed. The times

However, for a layman who receives an email out of the blue stating that he/she has won a lottery of Rs 50,000 would surely believe it. So,
Things I know now I wish I knew then I received an email today from a woman. A stranger. She wanted to know if my last marriage was to a sex addict. Unfortunately, it was. I discovered the truth two months after I’d married him. She, then, shared she likewise had the misfortune of marrying someone with the same addiction. “Should I stay or should I leave?” she wrote.
