"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.
From the beginning of our relationship, I felt something for him. It wasn't my intention to find love when I went online -- it was just to be happy, have sex and a nice time. But this relationship is more than a nice time with a nice man. It's not the same as the first time I fell in love. Is it the real thing? Can I trust it?
Anything worth fighting for will usually put you through the ringer, and monogamy is no exception.

Waiting until you're "in the mood" can lead to one very long dry spell. As Kerner says, "sex begets sex." So grab your partner -- and your planner -- and find some time not just on Valentine's Day, but every week.
I'm a 26-year-old woman who has never been street-harassed. I don't know the fear, embarrassment and/or anger that comes with unwanted sexual attention. A not insignificant part of me wishes I did, though.
Are you secretly turned on by the idea of being spanked? Have you ever considered turning things up a notch with your partner? Some people get weak in the knees at the thought of their underwear being taken down and having a firm hand applied to their buttocks.
According to an article, these are the things men find unattractive about us women, written by a woman. But if you want me to love my man just the way he is, then he can sure as f*ck love me the way I am.
A few months ago, a college friend of mine who's an avid online dater, received a note in her dating site inbox. It's a love letter of sorts, in that the guy who wrote it was genuinely interested in her. But as you'll see, the love didn't last long.
A first love is innocent. You go in blind, with no understanding and no standards. Second love, now that's the real stuff.
Maybe my marriage didn't end on my terms, but it was an opportunity to better myself. And I've found peace, love and success as I've changed the things that may have helped create cracks in the foundation the first time around.
My client, Karen, is a powerhouse at work and she knows how to get the job done quickly and efficiently. At the office, she's a true Alpha Female. An inability to flip the switch to her softer side after work meant her Alpha characteristics were showing up in her dating life, sending men running.
I won't make you read until the end to figure out my answer. I believe that the answer is actually an important starting point. So, drum roll please, I am a realist. I am not a romantic. I get that this may come as a surprise considering my professional field is human sexuality and relationships.
