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
Keen to meet someone this summer? Here are some tried and tested ways where you can be out and about enjoying the amazing weather and also meet men… 1. Find a dog to walk Take a friends dog for a walk in the local park, good times to go include lunchtimes, after work or on the weekend. Then, while walking your dog, smile at men as you pass by. People (men included) are more willing to stop to talk to someone who has an attractive (make sure it’s friendly, too) puppy with them

Is it a summer romance? Perhaps you broke up from your long term relationship earlier in the year and you are wanting to get back in the swing of dating and have some fun, particularly if your last relationship wasn’t the best at the end. Whatever you are look
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
We all know breakups are the worst, but after a while you get sick of being sad and start flipping through Tinder. And then what? The dating scene is terrible enough, but when you’ve been in a relationship for the last year(s) you may not even know how it works anymore and Valérie Duval is a living proof of such experience, please ladies, read 100 dates and a Wedding to find out more and related. Some people go straight into rebound relationships and some feel like they could
Here are the four reasons why: It was an absolutely lovely evening by all accounts. My date was handsome, kind, thoughtful, and the complete opposite of my narcissistic ex. He made me feel safe and comfortable in a way that felt foreign to me. After the date ended we said goodbye and he texted me an hour after I got home to say that he couldn’t wait to see me again. I sat down on the couch, took a deep breath, and burst into heaving sobs. Why did I feel absolutely miserable?
Does your partner put up a wall? Or is it you? “He’s emotionally unavailable,” a woman said of her partner. “I can’t seem to break through and figure out what he’s thinking. I can’t get close to him. It’s like he doesn’t trust me with his feelings.” She’d been dating this man for six months and it didn’t seem to get any easier. She wanted to know if emotional unavailability was an actual “condition”; was it something that could be changed? It’s a good question. “Emotional una
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
These are the games you don’t want to play. Are they in? Or out? Do they want to see me? Or not? Am I wasting my time? Or do I need to hang in there? Let’s be honest, a little game playing goes on at the start of most relationships as you test the water, gauge interest and try to figure out what’s going on. But ongoing mind games can drive you crazy with frustration. Because when the ground beneath you keeps shifting, it can feed an anxiety that never quite goes away. My part
Because most of “the signs” they tell you are garbage If you try to Google “how to know you’re in love,” you’re gonna have a bad time It also doesn’t involve fear of “never being with another woman.” I don’t even know what that is. Low self-esteem? Lack of conviction? Here’s a small sampling: “They’re always on your mind” This is infatuation. If someone’s “always” on your mind, you’re not focused on other Really Important Things and that’s a problem. Real love fits into real
Finding the right person, especially in today’s modern dating world, is pretty fucking difficult. 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
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. If you have enough trust with your partner, making porn with them can take your sex life to the next level. 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

It’s still the worst thing I’ve ever done This is the story of how I lost myself and broke a heart. He didn’t deserve it. He loved me in armfuls. He loved me so hard and so fully that he took that love and continued to dump it onto me. Load by load. Until finally, I couldn’t move at all. We met in college. We met after I had felt my heart ripped out of my chest by the boy I thought would be in my life forever. We met at my own apartment where our friends giggled off to the si
Use it for information, not communication. A couple of years ago, my now husband and I attended a workshop for couples aptly titled “Rules of Engagement.” It would be at this very workshop where we’d learn something that would change how we both viewed texting and help improve communication within our relationship. At least twenty couples were present at this workshop, all of different ages, races, ethnicities, religions, and orientations. Some were engaged, and some, like my
It happens to be the one thing women find hard to give. How many times have we heard the phrase, “All men want is sex?” When I was 17 years old I was sure it was true. When I was 37 years old, I suspected it might not be true. And now that I’m 73 years old, I know it’s not true. Now don’t get me wrong, sex can be wonderful at any age, but there’s something that is more important than sex, but it’s something that men have difficulty admitting and women have difficulty giving.
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. I vividly remember asking this same question. And, like her, I reached out for help and called a friend. “He’s
