Last night, my husband of 32 years asked me if I was up for a 'Date Night.' Soon we were nestled into a secluded booth, in the bar of a popular restaurant. My husband, mused, 'I'll probably die before you do, but if for some reason you die first, I don't think I'll go too young on my second wife.'
Almost everyone I know who's tried online dating complains that it's a major time suck. And it takes time to screen all those messages, compose responses and then arrange to meet up. I've wasted so much time on lengthy email exchanges, sending messages to prepare for meetings that never happened.

At the beginning of the relationship, it's all kisses, touching, and fantastic sex. You can't get enough of being with her. As the relationship progresses, the work begins, and you're faced with a new reality. You find yourself dealing with feelings and emotions you're not used to having.

True Talk. Love is to be expressed. You can't claim to love your spouse if you don't say or show it -- in fact, you may even say it and he/she won't believe because you don't show it.
When you're going through a breakup, a little escape can be welcome relief.
Remember, the more you fertilize your relationship the greater the connection you will feel and the faster you will want to drive home after you get off work!
Men can only focus on one thing at a time. Again, here's another area where we expect men to be like women but due to a part of our DNA that has been in humans since the caveman days, we are totally different here too.
Rather than putting a lot of pressure on your relationship, it is better to learn when and how to use the different negotiation tactics so that you can still be mostly happy. Hopefully, you can learn to negotiate your needs and desires in a fun, respectful way.
