It all began at a diner where I was having lunch with my boyfriend. I can't even remember what we were talking about, but somehow the conversation shifted to me complaining about being a single mom with not enough time and some other typical challenges that go along with being divorced.
I understand this type of bizarre lifestyle does not work for everyone, however, the ones it does work for absolutely live by it and love it. If all of the rules and boundaries are followed and everyone is happy, there really isn't any harm in living together this way!

This was the problem with these well-meaning people in a nutshell. When Beth gets upset, or fights Larry on an idea, he withdraws. I'm not sure if he's protecting himself or her, but my guess is that it's a bit of both.
I'm an unlikely sex podcaster. Wildly unqualified. I've never been in a sex shop. I have no degree in sexology. I'm a middle-aged married mom of two whose work and hobbies generally bore fellow dinner guests, if I were invited to dinner parties, which I haven't been, of late.
This is news that is probably not all that surprising to most people: men are less likely to embrace religion than women.
Being ready to meet someone means being ready to shed preconceived notions and open to the possibility of being taken by surprise. It means making an effort to put yourself into vulnerable situations and curbing negative expectations.

Men and women can equally be insecure and it takes some time to push them out of their comfort zone. But men more than women can look clueless when tackling styling.
Ghosting is definitely one trend in dating I will never understand, the fact that we have a universal definition of it is worrisome enough. To try an...
If even 10% of the single men in New York who are even 50% interested in entering into a committed relationship would begin to reflect on thoughts like these -- or, actually, those exact thoughts -- there would be much less loneliness in this city.
Think about this concept. A couple separates. Wife makes more than Husband. Her income will enable her to live at a higher standard of living post-...
I've been asked by men and women, young and old, acquaintances and strangers and family and friends. In intimate settings and public forums. By medical professionals (with no regard to my health), cabbies and cashiers.
Henry and I had been married for 10 years when I made him meet me for a blind date. It came with a simple requirement: We had to pretend we didn't know each other. After initially balking, Henry agreed.
When it comes to love in a post-divorce world, do you feel sick of guessing, settling, dealing with fakes and jerks? Hello bathroom & car selfies and ...
Self-awareness is defined as "knowing self well," but put in the context of divorce, I think it means having the courage to look in the mirror and say, "Hey, a lot of this (or all) was my fault."
