One of the delectable things I found out about being with a grown up is: they WANT to connect! And he opened me up to that feeling of "partners" again ... NOT to be a wife (we have both done enough marriages thank you) ... but loving again ... and in a new way.
In this day and age, women have won the right to vote, to burn our bras, and to climb the corporate ladder. Why do we still find it a challenge to be honest in the bedroom? And could this duplicity potentially lead us astray when looking for Mr. Right?
Sometimes love takes time ... and we should know. Bill and I met in kindergarten in 1962 and went to school together through high school. We always liked each other, but it wasn't until the ripe age of 53 that our orbits finally aligned and we were together, as it should have been all along!

I lost count of the number of times I thought I was in love, but it still took a while before I acknowledged the reasons for so many failures. Most of my relationships were what I call, unconscious entanglements; two dysfunctional people meeting and partnering quickly.
Just before Valentine's Day last year, the naughty little girl inside me started stomping her feet and trying to get my attention. She threw herself on the floor in a tantrum screaming "You need to spice things up! You are a hot, sexy woman with needs and its high time you seduce your husband through some flirtatious emails."
I met Ross my freshman year in college. Eleven years my senior, he was my philosophy adjunct professor at Temple University in Philadelphia. He was cute, Jewish, and intensely attentive. Just my type.

Whether you love or hate Valentine's Day, at the very least it's a reminder to reflect on our relationships, and to think about how we can love better...

I wasn't the girl who dreamed of a great big wedding. Marriage to me was never a must and I believed in commitment without the certificate; yet I knew without a doubt that I wanted to marry this man. So I said yes.
Ok ladies, we're going there... we're talking about sex. I know it's a bit of a taboo subject, but really, it shouldn't be! I'm a happily married woman (for nearly 12 years now) and I think a good sex-life is an EXTREMELY important part of what makes our marriage so happy in the first place.
"I have been dating a great guy for a year and a half, and he moved into my condo 6 months ago. I knew going in that he was divorced (for five years) and has an eight year old son. He is close to his ex, and it's good that they get along, but it's a bit too close."
Even in couples that are 'happily married,' it certainly feels like a majority are mismatched sexually. Somebody -- often the husband, but definitely not always -- isn't happy.
