With the premiere of Fifty Shades the movie widely anticipated this Valentine's Day, I think it's important to look at what heterosexual men can learn about what women are seeking in the fantasy that is Christian Grey.
Oh, yes, it's true. Sad, twisted, and slightly demonic, but true. Just in time for both Valentine's Day and the much-anticipated release of the Fifty Shades movie, the Vermont Teddy Bear Company has come out with a Fifty Shades of Grey Bear.
Since Elizabeth Bennett first began to warm to Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice after getting a look at his country estate at Pemberley, many a literary heroine's feelings for a man have been influenced by a setting that suggests wealth, power and good taste.
With a Valentine's Day release date, the timing couldn't be better; couples around the world are seeking romantic getaways with sex appeal for the holiday. Nothing ups the ante more than whips and chains, right?!
If you're not happy with your current relationship (and it's not abusive or destructive), do everything you can to shape it into what your heart desires. Only then, walk away peacefully. Ask yourself: 'Have you done everything you could possibly do?'
