How we met: ‘I told her I loved her – in Uzbek. She had no idea what I was saying’

Relationship
‘“She would come to my house to teach me English, and I would teach her Uzbek,” remembers Akmal. “But my motive,” says Sarah, “was to get as physically close as I could – so how do you turn a lesson into a date?” They ended up kissing.This wasn’t real life, but a scene they developed and performed as part of a theatre course in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 2009. Akmal was from Uzbekistan; Sarah, from the US. Both had enrolled for three years at the renowned Ilkhom Theatre of Mark Weil.“Everything we felt chemically and emotionally was on stage for everyone to see,” says Sarah. “Our professor saw it, our classmates saw it. We were like, ‘We’re just kissing because it’s a sketch.’ But it was heated. It was very magnetic.”

Our relationship is perfect – except we don’t have sex | Dear Mariella

Relationship
The dilemma I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year and it’s been near perfect, if not for the fact we don’t have sex. It dwindled after three months and I attempted to initiate it – even though it’s not really my character – to no avail. Now it’s not only barely existent but unenjoyable for me as he feels obliged to do it. I’ve always had a high sex drive and at the moment it’s all I think about. I really care about him and feel this is the man I could marry and have children with – he’s voiced several times that this is what he wants, too. I’ve brought the issue up no less than five times now and each time he either changes the subject or blames stress at work. The problem is, he wants me to move in with him, so this has well and truly come to a head. I need to make him see that this is a huge issue for me. I would have considered moving in and seeing how it went, but we don’t live close so this will be a big upheaval. How do I tactfully broach the subject?

'It's a violation': the war on (unwanted) dick pics has begun

Relationship
Earlier this month, after waking up to find an unwelcome dick pic in her Twitter account’s DMs, web developer Kelsey Bressler, 28, co-created an AI filter she claims is capable of preventing over 95% of sexually explicit images from reaching her inbox.To test the filter, Bressler solicited pictures of male genitalia en masse, receiving hundreds to the trial account @ShowYoDiq, “for science”.(Bressler is unsure of the exact final number of volunteer pics because she is still processing them manually and many respondents jokingly messaged her pictures of President Trump, which she must now weed out).Some of the more unusual images sent to Bressler slipped through the filter. One penis, covered in purple glitter, confused the AI, which was trained to spot flesh-toned appendages by processing a lot of porn. But when it comes to regular appendages, the filter sees and deletes them before the recipient must.

It’s Time to Quit Trash-Talking Handjobs

Relationship
If there’s a single sex act most associated with being a teenager, it’s undoubtedly the infamous handjob. More intimate than French kissing or heavy petting, manual stimulation of the genitals — by another person, specifically — crosses a clear boundary from sensual into sexual. At the same time, it’s a sex act that many people leave behind, intentionally or otherwise, when they begin engaging in oral sex, anal or vaginal penetrative sex. Compared to those heavy hitters, handjobs can be seen as less impressive, less desirable, less special, or even less sexy. And yet, handjobs are incredibly versatile. They can be performed by almost anyone — all you need is a person with a penis and a person with a hand. They can be performed almost anywhere in any position, whether sitting, standing, lying down, or even underwater.

My partner ‘jokes’ online with other men that she loves them

Relationship
After a lifetime apart from my college darling, we reconnected by chance and picked up again, each of us divorced with grown children. I thought we were happy and in love until, scrolling through photos on her iPad in search of more of her selfies, I found a recent full-frontal nude of another man. I then discovered torrid writing between her and at least two men, one of them the naked one, which she has apologised for but defended as “merely a joke”. While I love this woman, not least for our past, I cannot get over how she has told me she loved me, while saying the same thing to at least two other men. Can we really have a future?• When leaving a message on this page, please be sensitive to the fact that you are responding to a real person in the grip of a real-life dilemma, who wrote to Private Lives asking for help, and may well view your comments here.

If being married is so ‘great’, why do people cheat so often?

Relationship
Being married, typically speaking, comes along with a plethora of benefits to the individual: you are, according to studies, healthier, wealthier, happier and sexually satisfied.Moreover, you would have happier and more successful children to top everything off.However, regardless of all the mentioned above benefits, nearly half of marriages fall apart and end in divorce while many other people choose the single parent life.The circumstance, quite frankly, is that people seem to not want to be married.An added element to this occurrence is the fact that extramarital sex is deemed as a prevailing factor in troubled marital relationships, despite it posing a risk to their health, family, financial resources, and social status. Furthermore, it is said that married people have the tendency to have a better and more satisfying sex life in comparison to single people due to their commitment.

He Wants to Have Sex With You, Just not a Relationship

Relationship
He wants to have sex with you. And has proven that over and over. He contacts you late at night asking to come over and it always leads to sex. As a matter of fact, every time you are together it always leads to sex. (With him taking the lead of course.) The chemistry between the two of you is there, so the sex is great. You want more yet nothing seems to be progressing in this “relationship” between the two of you. And you want to know why.Well, it could very well be that the only relationship he is interested in having with you is a sexual relationship. Nothing more than that. Why? Because he doesn’t need to, and because he doesn’t want to. It’s that simple. He can have sex with you because he enjoys it. That doesn’t mean he wants you as a girlfriend. It doesn’t mean he wants to take you out and date you. He doesn’t need to talk to you in between meeting up for sex because he really doesn’t want to get to know you. This isn’t going anywhere, and he knows it, so why put in the effort?

7 Ways to Make Sex Much Less Awkward

Just like some people are naturally gifted athletes, some people are just natural lovers.RELATED:First-Time Hookup Sex PositionsBut for plenty of others sex, can be … well, kind of awkward.

My life in sex: ‘My partner’s lover visits our place once or twice a week’

Relationship
My partner and I have been very much in love for about seven years. Early on, she told me about a man she had met briefly, years earlier, to whom she felt a sexual attraction unlike anything she had experienced before. Nothing happened, so it stayed an unexplored fantasy.A year ago they met again by chance, and the chemistry was (she explained) instantly electric. We had a frank discussion about her desire for him, which resulted in her taking him to bed one afternoon for what she described as the best orgasm she had ever experienced. This was followed by weekly lunchtime sex (at my apartment in London).Soon afterwards, my partner and I decided to live together, and her lover began to visit our place once or twice a week. The challenge, for me, was to recognise that the chemistry she had with him was no threat to her love for me. I could not ask her to forgo such enjoyment (he is 20 years younger than me, 15 years younger than her, so there is a huge difference in the pleasure she gets from each of us). I recognised that the problem was mine, not hers.

We still share a house, though, for financial reasons and because we wanted to bring up our daughter (now six) together.We have a great friendship and eat, socialise and sometimes go on holiday together. But we have separate bedrooms and have developed as individuals.Dating other people was initially tricky. Now we won’t bring someone new to the house until it’s an established relationship. We also have a joint Google calendar to organise when we want to go on a date.Our living arrangement might not be for ever – we have an agreement that if we meet someone new, one of us might move out – but it’s right at the moment.

Let Chef Michael Symon Show You How to Grill the Best Burger Ever

Relationship
It is officially summer and that means one thing. No, not just summer skirts. Although we’re aware that’s a thing too. But the official start of summer also means it is time to dust off the grilling if you haven’t already.And to make sure you’re doing it right we caught up with celebrity chef and restaurateur Michael Symon, co-host of ABC’s The Chew, to make sure this year’s barbecue is more than just a selection of hot dogs, plain hamburgers and beer. Is there any “it” food this summer?I think the classics are classics for a reason so for me the it for is always a grilled rib eye or burger. I think people are having a bit more fun on the grill. Like my wife is a vegetarian so a lot of great vegetables on the grill are very common this season. Maybe tossed with a beautiful cheese and a simple vinaigrette. People are doing a lot of smoking outside and getting a little more adventurous. I think it’s good to stick to something you love to cook and if you love to cook it the people you have over will probably love to eat it.

Watch Snob Uncovers Why Erotic Complications Are So Unstimulating

Relationship
In a previous column, you discussed erotic watches and answered a question about the Perrelet Erotic watch. I am interested in your thoughts on erotic repeaters and strikers. These watches generally use automatons for their complication. These would include the erotic hour strikers from Ulysee Nardin and the Piece Unique Erotic Minute repeaters from Blancpain. In particular, the Blancpain seems quite captivating, offering an elegant dial with an intriguing case back.Your take would be most interesting.To be utterly unsparingly honest, erotic watches both fascinate and repel me. They are certainly and undeniably part of the history of Swiss watchmaking and they reflect all sorts of things — Calvinism, I suppose, and the deep discomfort which human sexuality produces in religiously repressive cultures, and the desire no matter the circumstances, to maintain some sense of connection to the deep and powerful current of sensuality upon which the propagation of the human species depends. So all that is perfectly all right.

Male Biological Clocks Are Ticking Too

Relationship
Men often escape discussions of biological clocks, with popular wisdom proclaiming that men can easily put off fatherhood until their forties, fifties, sixties, and even beyond. However, research seems to suggest that men should be aware of their own biological clocks as well.RELATED:Trying to Conceive: Male Fertility GuideAccording to ABC, at the most recent Fertility Society of Australia conference, Franca Agresta of Melbourne IVF presented new findings which challenge the traditional orthodoxy surrounding male fertility and aging.“There is an ageing effect that men should be aware of,” Agresta said. “It's not surprising given most biological processes are impacted by aging.”And 40 indeed seems to be the magic number, or at least the age which fertility researchers were zeroed in on. Collecting a sample of IVF patients and the results of 1,400 single embryo transfer cycles over a period of five years, scientists were able to conclude that men under the age of 40 were able to produce an early pregnancy in well over one-third of cases, or 39 percent of the time.

Today’s demisexual kids are swimming against the tide of hookup culture. Good luck to them

Relationship
If you’re of an age to remember LGB marches and felt perplexed when the T and the Q folk joined the throng, but are now up to speed, I bring you news of another letter. D, for demisexuality. Or D for, “Duh, well, of course demisexuality, you antique,” because in the main, it seems to be teens and twentysomethings doing it. Or more accurately, not doing it unless they really want to.Demisexuality means – loosely speaking, since capturing any sexuality in a neat definition is like herding cats – being only sexually attracted to people you already know. Hookup culture leaves demisexuals bewildered. For them, blind lust for strangers on dating apps or in the street does not often, or ever, occur. They need friendship first, before sexual feelings awaken.

Should I go to my son’s wedding? His mother poisoned everyone against me

Relationship
My 30-year-old son is getting married. When his mother and I split up in a messy divorce about 20 years ago, she did everything she could to sabotage my relationships, assassinate my character, and make as many people as possible think I was total scum.It was so horrible I ended up moving to a different part of the country. I do not have good relationships with my siblings, either, many of whom will probably be at the wedding. The situation is that virtually everyone will hate me being there.It feels like a reprehensible thought, but it is hard to imagine going to the event. At times, I think I must go and really have no choice; then my mind swings in the other direction and I feel there is no way I can subject myself to being in the presence of so many people who despise me. When my son invited me, he did it with a voicemail and said, “If you can get that day off work.”

8 Kinky Things Women Secretly Want in Bed

If you’re a straight guy, you’re probably used to asking for (or even just taking) what you want in bed. You want to switch positions? You flip her over. You want a blowjob? You subtly nudge her until you get one. You want to try a threesome? You not-so-subtly suggest it when drunk one night. Even if you get turned down, at least you expressed what you wanted. For lots of guys, that’s just how sex works. But lots of guys also have at least one or two things they’re a little bit shy about. Things they might watch in porn and get turned on by but never bring up, or things they feel guilty about liking, are ashamed of or wish they didn’t find quite as hot as they do. If you recognize that feeling, well, you’re getting just a little taste of what it’s like to be a woman.

Less than a week later, he flew Elisia from their home in Toronto, Canada, to the UK, where he proposed in a capsule of the London Eye. Their fellow passengers were an incognito musician, who performed their favourite song, Ed Sheeran’s Perfect, and extras who lined up to reveal T-shirts that read: “Will you marry me?” She said yes.The number of marriages in the UK may have been in decline since the 70s, with barely 240,000 couples tying the knot in 2016, but weddings are still big business, worth more than £10bn a year.

Sex and romance are significant aspects of most people’s lives, from the ways we live, love others, the media we buy and consume, our dreams and fantasies, and to how we think about and engage with our sexual health. If you know, love or are intimate with trans and gender-diverse people, it’s no secret that we have sexual and romantic lives just like anyone, and yet until now very little research has been done about how these are expressed and experienced.In response to this lack of research, the 2018 Australian Trans and Gender Diverse Sexual Health Survey was initiated late last year, in an online survey hosted by the Kirby Institute at the University of New South Wales and conducted in collaboration with community advocates, clinicians and researchers from around Australia.

Do not give them a chance to enter your life!If an emotional vampire starts knocking on your office door, or social media door or whatever else, do not let them in.If they start a neverending monologue about how unfair and cruel life has been to them, and how disgrace seems to follow them everywhere they go, just slam the door (well, maybe not the real door but the proverbial one). Ask them politely but with conviction, if they would be willing to change the subject to a merrier one.

7 toxic things that can be more harmful than cheating

Relationship
Cheating is surely a big way to totally demolish a relationship, but there are a few other things that are much more destructive when it comes to ruining even the tightest of bonds.Some of the ugliest things that can lead to a breakup (besides cheating) start out as small and indiscernible, and that’s exactly what makes them so dangerous. 1. LyingThe act of lying to a romantic partner is often the worst signal of a dying relationship. Lying is not something impulsive and uncontrollable – it is a habit which, in time, becomes part of who you are. Should you find your partner lying to you about little things, be wary. Ask him or her to elaborate on the reasons why they chose to lie to you.

Other cocktails have relied upon the dark roasted tang of coffee as well, but now it looks like beer is the latest beverage to adopt the coffee bean. Though the usual blend of beer and coffee calls for dark, thick beers — Blue Moon's Iced Coffee Blonde is different.

How we met: ‘Two girls had broken in. I threw on a towel and ran out to meet them’

Relationship
The Christian Brothers – “kind of like monks,” says Dreux – would not have been happy to know that two teenage girls had broken into the dormitory of their all-boys’ boarding school in Louisiana. “These men had taken vows of poverty and celibacy, and they didn’t deal with women very well at all.”Dreux was 18, and was working at his old school during the holidays, helping to run its summer camp. He had been having a shower when one of the boys ran in to tell him two girls were in the dormitory. “I threw on a towel, ran out and met these two young ladies and said: ‘You can’t be here,’” he recalls.One of them was Dianne, who was accompanying her friend Penny, who was trying to find her boyfriend, also working on the camp. They didn’t know which room was his, so they went round knocking on doors until they found one that was open. Dreux smiles. “This is a secure residence – there are minors here. The doors are supposed to be locked. Someone must have left a door unlocked intentionally. All the young men were very excited to find young ladies in the dormitory.”

How to Master the Art of Kissing and Leave Her Speechless

Relationship
Humans have been kissing each other for probably as long as they’ve had lips, and it’s no secret why: A good kiss is a blissful experience, like taking a bite of a delicious snack, high-fiving the coolest person you know and acing a difficult test all at the same time, while fireworks go off in the distance. It’s physical, it’s psychological, it’s emotional — hell, in some circumstances, it might even approach the spiritual. A couple kissing on the lips is almost a universal stand-in for the concept of romantic love, and even before we’ve ever locked lips with someone for the first time, most of us can detect what subtle variations in kissing mean: a quick peck is unemotional; a tongue-heavy French kiss is passionate; long is intimate, short is nervous and shy.

What I Want to Remind You About Regarding Purpose

I know that “purpose” is an incredibly hot self-help buzzword these days. If you were to do an internet search on the word, you would probably find dozens of events, workshops, and even blogs hoping to teach about the importance of purpose, and how you can find it.For a long, long time I lived in the purpose rabbit hole. I read the blogs and attended the workshops because I believed that purpose was incredibly important, and that, if I really wanted to be successful and better yet, live a fulfilled life, I had to find my purpose.While deeply stuck in that hole, I believed that purpose was a tangible, knowable thing that functioned outside of myself. And it felt very, very elusive to me under those circumstances. I thought that if I dug deep enough and did enough work, I would magically come up with a title or answer that would completely define my purpose, and why I’m here on this planet.

Instant relationships, although tempting, should be avoided. It may sound romantic to have your relationship pick up speed faster than a hurricane. The problem is,though, that instant relationships often stop just as quickly as they started. We live in a world where we want everything FAST. We want fast food so we no longer have to wait and cook, we need high speed internet, faster cars, faster phones, faster EVERYTHING.Nobody wants to wait for anything anymore, including love and relationships. Clients often want to know if the guy they just met, just started dating, or was recently hired at work and they find attractive, will lead to a relationship.

Tips for Moving On From a Relationship

Relationship
Many people write in asking for help with moving on from a relationship. Moving on is easier said than done, and it can take a long while to truly be able to say you have actually moved on. It isn’t a snap decision, it is a process, and processes take time.Don’t beat yourself up that you are not over a relationship in record time. You may have been in a relationship for a long time, and had deep feelings for that person. You cannot rationally expect to be able to move on from something like that in a month or two. Regardless of what your well-meaning friends and family might say, you are a human being and it is going to take however long it is going to take.Don’t rush into another relationship right away. You emotions are raw right now, and you still have feelings for your ex. It isn’t fair to be emotionally unavailable and to be dating someone new. Whoever you are dating doesn’t really stand a chance if you are emotionally unavailable. If you are not really ready to be dating and are pressured to do so, it can just make things worse and make it harder to move on.

Why I Want to Stop Being Nice

Relationship
For most of my life I have held a deep desire to be nice. I’m not exactly sure where that intention was sparked within me, but I think the virtue was likely ingrained in me as a child. “You must always be nice”, “be a nice person”, “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”. I truly worked so hard at being nice, it felt almost like a competition to me, how could I become the “nicest” person I know.About a week ago, I was having a conversation with my mom, and I made a comment about being nice, and in an unusually terse tone, she asked me, “what do you mean by nice? what does the word nice mean to you?” Her questions stopped me in my tracks, because in my whole life I had never considered what “nice” really meant. I just felt like I had to embody it, as if it was some universally sought after trait. It’s what “good girls” do. I gathered from her tone, though, that my mom didn’t really hold the word “nice” in high regard, which shocked me. So I naturally, looked up the word nice in the dictionary to find the following definition: pleasing, agreeable.

The reasons people cheat in relationships, according to science

Think you can spot the telltale signs of a cheat? Perhaps someone who settled down too soon before playing the field, or a cold, calculated type who's adept at covering their tracks? Well, you'd be wrong.It's actually people who have had higher numbers of sexual partners, or have impulsive tendencies, who are more likely to cheat, according to a study.Although each relationship is unique, researchers at the University of Queensland studied why people are unfaithful found that there are certain factors that indicate a person is more likely to cheat.According to the findings, published in the British Journal of Psychology, people who are impulsive may cheat simply because they do not pause to consider the situation, instead acting on their immediate thoughts and emotions.

Based on her commentary of this person, she didn’t really like the person, she didn’t understand the person, and she wasn’t gaining a whole lot by following and engaging in this person’s content. I asked my friend why she didn’t just unfollow this person, if they were truly this distressing. While giving a blank, and serious stare, she replied, “I can’t do that, I’m too invested now”. And so, she decided to continue to “hate follow” this stranger on the internet.This whole conversation gave me great pause.

Four weddings, four babies, one pair of lost knickers: celebrating 10 years of Blind date

Did Saturdays even exist before the Blind date column? Not as far as I’m concerned. The start of the weekend was a joyless desert until, in 2009, Weekend magazine started sending two hapless (my words) strangers out for dinner in the hope that three courses, a bottle of house white and the terror of appearing in a national newspaper would be the accelerant a romantic spark needs to go full inferno.I have been obsessed with Blind date for most of its 10-year existence. Its simplicity is deceptive: what the daters say leaves plenty of room for interpretation. On the surface, the questions are formulaic – somewhere between inane smalltalk at a stranger’s house party and the sexless interrogation of a dietary questionnaire from your GP. But in the context of the column, they are traps – and I love to see the participants fall right in, revealing themselves via the short aside that they shared a pudding with their date. And let’s not forget that score out of 10. Brutal to have adults rate one another, you might say. Delicious, I say.

Is Your Ex Orbiting You?

Relationship
Is your ex orbiting you even though it has been quite a while since you broke up? If an ex is orbiting you, it can be unclear to you what their true intentions are.First, let’s explain orbiting. It’s when an ex attempts to stay friendly with you but still keep you at arms length. They may like your social media posts from time to time, but won’t actually have a conversation with you. It is their little way of keeping a watch on you without actually dealing with you in any substantial way.Do they do it because they want to get back together with you? Some may, and their little attempts of making their presence known without really doing much could be their way of trying to get you to think of them or react to them. It may be their way of opening the door just a crack to see if you walk in. It could also be their way of attempting to keep the spark alive on your end, in case they do want to revisit the relationship down the road.

Cookie Jar Relationships

Relationship
Cookie jar relationships have been called a new dating trend, but in fact it is just a new name for behavior that has been going on for a long time. So what exactly are cookie jar relationships?It is when someone is keeping you as an option, but never really considers you for a monogamous, long-term relationship. They are keeping you as an option, and whenever they want a “cookie”, they pull you out of the jar.Have you been dating someone who never makes plans in advance? If so, you may be in a cookie jar relationship. Keep in mind, there are other cookies in that jar as well. Not just you. You may not know about the others, it depends on whether or not they wish to let you know. They are keeping their options open, and you are one of many.

Honoring Your Desires

Relationship
The other day I was driving down A1A, one of my favorites drives in South Florida as it’s right on the ocean, and out of nowhere, I felt a wave of sadness wash over me. Honestly, for no apparent reason. Racking my brain for what could be the cause, I noticed that along my journey, I had been driving behind a Jeep for the past few miles, and my answer became clear to me.You see, for most of my growing up life, I wanted a Jeep. As a kid, I dreamed of turning 16, getting my license, and saving up my money to make my dream car, a reality. When the internet became a thing, I would go on the Jeep website and test out all the different colors and options, so I knew exactly what car I would want, and its price, when the time came.

Saying ‘No’ Doesn’t Make You a Bad Person

Relationship
Saying “No” to someone you love can make people feel guilty. They feel mean for saying no. Nothing could be further from the truth. When you tell a child “no” you are saying it for good reason. That doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you a good parent. So why can’t it be the same with adults?Saying “No” is how we enforce our personal boundaries. Whatever your reason is for saying no, it is good enough for you, so it should be good enough for the one you love. We all want to say yes to the one we love most of the time. We feel it is a way of showing how much we care. But that doesn’t mean that when you say “No” to someone you love that you don’t care about them.If the one you love gets upset if you do not say yes to their every demand or favor (or whatever) then there is a bigger problem going on in your relationship. Someone that tries to make you feel bad for saying no to them is trying to manipulate you. They want you to feel bad so you always say yes. That kind of manipulation is mean, and nice people don’t behave that way. Selfish, entitled, spoiled brats do. If you are experiencing this kind of dynamic in your relationship then it is time to put the hammer down to change it. That is not a healthy relationship, and it won’t get any better without major change.

The Truth I’ve Learned About Purpose

Relationship
For much of the past few years I’ve felt completely obsessed with purpose. I distinctly remember years ago, hearing in a seminar that finding your purpose was the key to unlocking the life you truly wished to lead, and that once you knew your purpose you would certainly succeed in life. I really, really believed this, and so I went off on the journey to uncover what my purpose really was. I wanted so badly to find “the one thing” that my soul was brought here to do, so that I could live that fully aligned, happy, and successful life.The interesting thing, though, is that on my journey to finding my purpose, the clarity, or that major “aha” moment never really showed up. I would get glimpses of things that interested me, and causes I wanted to pursue, but that high ideal of true “purpose” didn’t really completely grab my attention and light up my soul.

Are They Ready for a Relationship?

Relationship
Are they ready for a relationship? You may want them to be, and they may even say they are, but how can you tell? People often talk the talk, but do not back it up with action. They say the right things and make you believe they really want to be in a relationship. They can waste your time, and break your heart if you are not careful.So how can you tell if they are really ready to be in a healthy relationship, as opposed to a dysfunctional one? Here are some signs they are ready for a relationship, and the flip side, that they are not.1. If they are open about their feelings, and are not afraid to show vulnerability, then that is a good indication they are ready for a relationship. If they keep their feelings to themselves, and think being vulnerable is a sign of weakness, they are more than likely not ready for the kind of healthy, loving relationship you are.

The Right Relationship Will NEVER Make You Sacrifice Your Identity

Relationship
I’m going to be as brutally clear as possible in this post. No fluff. No introduction. No sugar-coating.A relationship should be a consistent evaluation of the person you are committing to.You should 100% and absolutely be able to envision a future with them and COMMIT to building it.But, you should ALSO be abundantly clear at every step of the way on whether or not this person is the right fit for you.People change. Circumstances change. Life situations change. A commitment today does not give anyone permission to begin treating you badly or stop putting effort in, 5 years down the road.ANY emotional or physical abuse is NOT NORMAL. This means throwing things, hitting things, tearing down your confidence, making you feel “lesser than,” gaslighting you…anything that is designed to take away your ability to leave the situation, or to harm you.

5 Reasons Men Succeed at Work but Fail in Relationships

Relationship
Why do you think so many traditionally successful men have failed relationships or problems connecting with women?Men, biologically, are programmed to be hunters and providers. Our self worth (incorrectly) often rests on what we make, what we have, the value we bring.This puts many men on a path of chasing external validation and accomplishments. A good job, a big house, whatever it may be.

Why So Many High-Achieving Men are Unhappy (and 3 ways to fix it)

Relationship
One of the many false narratives we are fed through social media and society in general, is that becoming wildly successful will make you happy.The houses, the cars, the travel, the beautiful people, places, and things…you’ll get respect from other men. You’ll get attention from women. You’ll be free from stress and worry.How could you NOT be just “living the dream” every waking moment?The reality is, though, that none of this guarantees even the slightest shred of fulfillment or internal happiness.Often times, it actually causes the opposite.Constant pressure from work or your business brings stress, which can translate into health and relationship issues. On top of that, it perpetuates pressure to perform at a high level at all times.

My 5 Favorite Summer Reads

Relationship
It’s officially summer! I’m so excited to finally be able to say Happy Summer. At least to my friends in the Northern Hemisphere. To my friends elsewhere, Happy Sunday! 🙂I remember looking forward to summer so much as a kid, particularly the time and space that summer created for me. I had time to play, to do what I wanted, and to read, learn and grow in my own way. One of my favorite summer pastimes was reading. My teachers would prescribe a summer reading list to prepare me for the next school year, and I was always so excited to see what would be on the list each year.Even though I no longer have teachers giving me lists, I’ve kept this tradition going, but in this case, prescribing my own summer reading list, as a way to prepare me for the remainder of the year ahead.

Top Relationship Mistakes to Avoid

Relationship
Relationships mistakes are often unavoidable. There are certain things that you won’t know about in advance, and you find out too late. But there are a lot of relationship mistakes you can avoid if you make a conscious effort. He is our list to help you avoid these relationship mistakes instead of making them.1. Do not look to far ahead. Stop writing a romance novel in your head. Deal with the reality, and stick with the facts and only the fact of what you know, not what you assume. Don’t look at future promises as things you are being given today. Sure, you got the promise they will spend more time with you, or end their other relationship, or be more affectionate. But until they do, you have NOTHING.  Just a promise that has not been fulfilled. Until it is, it is worthless. Use your time in the early stages to see things for what they are, are honestly ask yourself if this person is organically compatible with you in the most important ways. If they are too much work, then perhaps they are not the right one for you.

5 Ways to Be The Man Every Woman is Looking For

Relationship
Let’s be honest here: The title of this article either intrigued you or aggravated you to the point where you just had to click it. How could this random guy on the internet know what every woman wants? What an idiot.Who is he to tell us how to date? How to live? How to be?I will tell you one thing, in nearly a decade of writing and speaking about human relationships, I have yet to find someone who disagrees with the points I am about to make here.So crack those knuckles and get your typing fingers ready to rebut me in the comments, but bring your reasoning and evidence with you.Stability does not have to be boring, and adventure does not have to uproot your entire life. Many relationships get stale because there is no excitement left, no thrill, no passion – and much of that fades because routine takes over and we become complacent.

I Wish I Had Known This Truth About Relationships Sooner

Relationship
This might come as a surprise, but I’ve never considered myself someone who is “good” at relationships. Throughout my life I’ve had many falling outs with girlfriends, really rocky break-ups with boyfriends, and uncomfortable dysfunction with family.I can vividly picture myself every time a relationship went sour, wondering what I had done wrong, trying to figure out why the relationship didn’t last, and writing crazy stories about what it meant about me, as a human. I thought it reflected something really subpar in myself, such as I was unworthy of having healthy relationships. I wondered if I was too difficult, high maintenance, or weird to be loved in the way that I felt I should be.

Give Yourself Permission

Relationship
As children, we are taught to always ask permission. You want to go somewhere? Ask permission. You want to eat something? Ask permission. You want to do something? Ask permission. You want to see a friend? Ask permission.Permission was always asked before doing anything, at least if you wanted to be an obedient child. I was a follow-the-rules kind of girl, so this was very much me. However, I know there are rule breakers out there, and we can chat about this dynamic in another blog.While I obviously understand the immense importance of children seeking approval in doing things at a young age, it seems to me that the habit of looking for approval seeps into adulthood in ways that I only recently uncovered.

You Can Be “Nice” Or You Can Be Respected – But Not Both

Relationship
I spent the first two decades of my life always trying to be “nice” to everyone around me. You may have heard the term “Nice guys finish last” a few million times, and it’s true. Not just in dating, but in life.Why could this be?Have you ever described someone as being nice? When you do that, what are you really saying about them?Oh, he’s nice though.*Shrug* She’s nice I guess.“Nice” people typically are people-pleasers or those who don’t like to make waves.Besides that, it doesn’t really mean much of anything, because you probably don’t know much about the person since they are always doing what they think other people want them to do.Like the moon reflects the sun but doesn’t shine its own light, being nice simply shows us who you think we want you to be. It doesn’t show us what your own brightness looks like.

Is it Really Love or Something Else?

Relationship
Is it really love or is it something else? Sometimes what we think is love is actually something else entirely, and that something is not a good thing. Almost everyone has heard the quote “If you don’t love yourself you cannot love anyone else.” It really is true. If you love yourself you know what love looks like. You know how to treat people, and how you should be treated. You know what loving dialogue sounds like, and what demeaning dialogue sounds like.When you love yourself, you respect yourself. You also recognize disrespect right away and will not tolerate it.  You attract, and are attracted, to people who treat you with love. When you do not love yourself, you are insecure. You are attracted to people who make you feel insecure. You want to win their affections, but at the same time, feel unworthy of them.
