Small gestures like holding hands or putting your arm around each other increases closeness, which is always a factor in the lives of happy couples. When you hold hands, you're subconsciously reminding yourself that you care about each other.
I'm on the record as saying that physical attraction remains (almost) as important at 50 or 60 as it was at 20 or 30, and even though some of us will be blessed to have working parts forever, some of us won't.
These 10 questions are things you should ask each other in order to have a more harmonious, fulfilling marriage together. The answers to these questions shouldn't be deal-breakers -- but knowing the answers to these questions should help make you a better spouse.
Begin by making your own happiness a priority. What does this have to do with dating? When you're happy, you glow. When you glow, men are attracted to you.
After each date, I feel the urge to call someone, to tell them what I just did, to brag. That I wanted to do something that seemed porny, unattainable, and weird. And I got it. I'm getting it. I'm getting it on the regular. It's the most overtly sexual life choice I've ever made, and it's fun.
The magic of intimacy is that it can be of the soul. To be intimate simply means to be empathetically in tune with your partner, feeling their fears, desires, wishes, and needs as if they were your own.
I was tentative about saying the "L word;" it was a big step for me -- especially considering that Lucas and I had never actually met. In person, that is. The Internet has, indeed, made the world a very small place.
Parenthood and dating can co-exist but those who manage them well are not struggling to acclimate to newly single lives. And they've healed to where parenthood and dating no longer collide but can share space in their life so they can mindfully and healthfully meet someone new.
Fellas, if you're in your 50s, single and dating (and feeling like you're not getting anywhere), consider this a little friendly feedback from the ladies.
Sometimes, I think we take sex way too seriously. We can talk the sexy and the pleasure right out of sexy. And if you are like most people, you're yearning to laugh, play and get out of your head and into your body again. When was the last time you played with your sexuality?
The idea was to become a woman who this particular man would love, and at that I failed completely. But in the process, I achieved something more important: I started to become the woman I wanted to be.
Divorce doesn't mean you are a failure. What it means is that you failed at one thing. Everyone fails at something, and most of us have had a bunch of failures. So what?
These are three simple things. So simple in fact that we forget to do them. We did these things effortlessly in the beginning, when we were pursuing a romantic relationship. Like I said, this will work in any relationship but let's stick with the romantic side of things first.
Men age like a fine wine. It takes awhile, a long while in fact, for a man to mature. When a woman finally meets a 'real' man, she's very very happy because she has waited so damn long for those sour boy grapes to mature into a luscious, velvety viral gentleman.
It's one of the biggest fears anyone who has ever agreed to meet up with someone on an app has -- what if your date is lying to you?
Falling in love is about loyalty. It's about being in your partner's corner at all times. It's about making them that one person who comes before all else. It's an allegiance, a commitment to always support one another, even when you can't stand the sight of them.
