Your kids need you to really love them. And loving them is more than just financially providing for them. You need to love them for who they are and who they want to become.
Today, I know that needing a partner to compensate for what is lacking in my life, and wanting a partner to abundantly share my life, sets the stage for two very different relationships. It's the difference between having someone who completes you, and having someone who enhances you.
If you're under the impression that it's mostly men who cheat on their wives, then you are mistaken. According to new research, many married women are seeking affairs for romance and sexual satisfaction without any plans of divorcing their partner.
In my mid-twenties I was in constant relationships with little time to myself. Each new partner brought some hope for great love, but inevitably ended up falling into a similar pattern as the last. It wasn't their fault; it was mine.
Don't take your love away from me, Don't you leave my heart in misery, If you go, then I'll be blue, 'Cause breaking up is hard to do... -- Neil Sedak...
The relationship was a total roller coaster, and it definitely had it's thrills, but the thrills came at a cost. Every time we'd go out I felt pressured to drink more than I was comfortable with. I did it in part to impress them and also to ease the anxiety I was feeling.
In order to get a better sense of what may be considered a normal and healthy sex drive these days, I asked four experts (or sexperts) for their opinions about what constitutes a normal sex drive.

It does not appear that the youth of America have surpassed the drunken fumbling in backseats of the previous generation or of their fathers' fathers. And what would healthy intimacy resemble in a world of texting, sexting, swiping, Tweeting, Instagramming, and Facebooking?
By cultivating tolerance for our own feelings, and softening to one another rather than constricting, healthy and mindful marriages have a fighting chance.
As gay men, sometimes we find ourselves subconsciously choosing to do everything in our power to avoid looking foolishly vulnerable and admittedly undesirable in the face of other gay men, but at the end of the day, doing that almost NEVER makes us feel any stronger or masculine by a long shot.
Love is not a choice. It exists, everywhere and in each of us. We all know it well. To act from love, however, is a choice. To make love a priority, no matter what, is a choice. To commit oneself to being a messenger of love is a choice. The single best choice anyone of us can make.
Before you date, know and love yourself first. Get your life together. Do not go into dating expecting someone to take care of your emotional welfare. Your emotions will always, first and foremost, be your job. You must look out for yourself first and not expect someone else to do it.
When we have an opportunity to explore a once great relationship again, we have an opportunity to explore ourselves too. We can look at it with new eyes and hopefully the courage to follow our heart wherever it may lead.
