Rather than trying to figure out all the different components of how to make love last, focus instead on creating an atmosphere of respect with your partner. The more you can do this, the more other vital elements of the relationship, like trust, intimacy, passion, love, and so on, will naturally flourish.
I hear a lot about the importance of honesty in relationships, but I'm a believer in telling kind or polite lies. Honesty can hurt sometimes, and doesn't always leave a winner, instead just making both parties lose. So here are the lies I think you should tell when dating.
For all of you singles out there, it took me way longer than I hope it takes you to learn what it means to really know yourself. Because if someone really loves you? They won't care if you own a sweatshirt with the logo of their crappy football team on it. And if you really, truly love someone? You'll never even consider buying one.
We have completely romanticized the notion of marriage. It's why people seemingly spend more time planning the wedding than their actual life together.
So slip into those tight leather jeans. That dog collar would look fetching. Add a piercing in a place your mother wouldn't imagine. Or take your l...
If you're part of a couple -- or have ever been part of one -- you know that couples do some pretty strange things. Here's a few of those things all couples do that seem a little wacky but really are completely normal.
I'm not attracted to women my own age! Sound familiar? I've heard this statement from countless male acquaintances & friends in their 50s and 60s. Men -- you're probably nodding your head in agreement. Not all of you -- but quite a few!
If in your 40s, it seems OK to me to date guys in their 30s, 40s or 50s. But 50 is a different story. Guys in their 30s are definitely out, guys in their 40s might work, but they might want women in their 30s or 40s, guys in their 50s want girls in their 30s or 40s, and guys in their 60s just seem too old.
There's a zillion reasons why we love women. Here are the first few.
The first year of our son's life was the most difficult of our marriage to date and it is also the year I learned a very important lesson: My husband must always come before our children. Don't get me wrong; I love my kids and would do anything for them. But I love my husband more.
I wanted to know how men feel about dating fellow boomers, so I gathered up a few of my middle-aged guy friends, bought them a few beers, and picked their brains about their dating life: the good, bad, and ugly. They were buzzed just enough to let it rip.
Sex was my primary measuring stick to evaluate relationships until I turned 50, which was when I learned the best sex includes an emotional connection. I realize casual sex might work for some over-50 guys, but it can't compare with loving sex.
If your relationship's broken in some way, then it's time to repair the damage. Don't bury your feelings in a ditch hoping they'll disappear -- your emotional wounds will just get bigger. So let's dig into how your relationship could be hurting you and get you on the road to recovery.
Women spend months, even years, fantasizing about love. Yet blinded by what we think is true love, we frequently marry or commit to someone who we don't really know.
I've been with my husband for 20 years. And we've had a pretty awesome marriage by most measures. But they say you'll either fight about sex or money. And for us, it wasn't money.
We're tempted to believe that the great and valuable things of life are somewhere "out there." But more often than not, the priceless pearls of our lives are hidden in the open -- the greatest treasures of our lives are things like home, family and dear friends. With that in mind, I made this video for my wife to celebrate our anniversary.
