There is something oh so powerful about sisterhood. The wounds that block others from seeing your inner light connects you to your soul sisters even more, because they can see the REAL you--even in your darkest moments.
One stormy night in my beachside Florida city, I plopped down at my computer and frowned at the gently glowing screen. On it was a photo of a smiling man who was looking for a new best friend, a "no drama" woman, and someone not his own age.
It's true that married sex is the best sex, but expecting your sex drives to sync up from the start might be a mistake.
What would you do if you saw yourself in another person's body? Not in a Freaky Friday sort of way, but in a spiritual "this must be kismet because nothing else makes sense" kind of way? This other person may very well be your soul mate, or perhaps, they were sent to teach you.
Yes, we love our spouses and family, but there's something about a girlfriend that helps us see life differently.
Once upon a time, I had a friend who was very important to me. I actually had two friends who were important. We had been a threesome during much of high school, Annie, Michael and me. Just before we turned 40, Michael, who had been HIV-positive for a number of years, moved into full-blown AIDS.

Cramping, bloating, a craving for salt and excessive fatigue let me know a week in advance that, once again, I've failed to become a mother.
Arguing in and of itself can be very upsetting, so it isn't surprising that some people look to avoid it completely. The problem is that if you do that you will close off an important channel of communication that can eventually lead to a better place.
You can listen to other people's advice and experience, but because you are a completely new and unique combination, your relationship will blossom only through trial and error.
As we get older, friendships become even more important. We pick and choose to keep those people in our lives that matter most, cull down the list of those that don't warrant the effort and maintain those that pass the test of time.
When you're in a serious, long-term relationship, the terms "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" can begin to feel a bit juvenile, or at least insufficient for describing your level of commitment.
