I believe though, as Huffington posits in Thrive, that coincidences are the miracles that God performs anonymously.
While you can't force attraction, there are definitely some things you can do to cultivate it. Personality and conversation are dramatically underappreciated tools in the toolkit for finding a mate.
What does it mean to be happy? It is the most elusive of questions, and permeates much of our daily lives. While we toil away in our work and personal lives, we secretly pray for happiness. "I just want to be happy," so many people say. But do we even know what happiness is?
Applying for college is very stressful -- not just for your sister, but also for your mom and dad. If they're like most parents I've met, who spend a lot of time and energy helping their kids, it might feel as if they are being judged.
Let's get something straight, right now. The heart does not want anything. The heart does not have a brain nor does it have the ability to make com...
Seeing ourselves and others as commodities makes dating stressful and no fun. So instead, why not see the date for what it is: a meeting of two people, trying to connect.
We may live in a country with social mobility, but the rules of dating still resemble the caste system of India. Here's how to date way outside of your own kind of average, not-so-impressive league.
Most women are conditioned to believe that their hopes and dreams should dim in comparison to a mans. How often do you hear of men quitting their jobs because their woman got a new position that requires them to relocate?

I'm too old to fake it (yes, I mean that in every way you think) anymore, so in this "adult" phase of my dating life, I've decided to approach it entirely differently by promising five things to myself.
If you want to take your relationship to the next level (meaning less talk and more play!), but don't know how to break the ice sexually, there are a few things you can do to get your partner's attention without being too obvious.
How many times have you heard yourself say, "He's just not my type" before you've even gotten a chance to know a man? Sure, it's hard to think outside of the box, but if your relationships are causing more grief than good in your life, then it's time to end this pattern.
I have repeatedly seen strong women fall into certain destructive relationship patterns, so I have developed a handy checklist I call the Big Three Don'ts. If you keep these in mind, I truly believe you can save yourself a ton of wasted time and energy.
No relationship comes without risks or baggage for that matter. I would have missed out on a life-changing relationship if I made his single dad status a deal-breaker. Being in a relationship with a man who has taken on raising kids makes my life that much richer and rewarding, mostly in unexpected ways.
I believe we have it quite backwards and maybe even upside down and inside out. We must first apply the "L" word to ourselves. Then, it blossoms into something quite remarkable and supremely enriching.
There may very well be 31 years worth of flavors in ice cream land -- Jamaican Me Crazy, anyone? -- but, to ward off diabetes, lactose intolerance, and clichéd husband jokes, here's just a taste.
You can control the amount of time and effort you spend trying to meet people. You can control your behavior on your dates -- your promptness, the way you dress and how you treat these gentle strangers. But you can't control whether the two of you fall in love.
