New Years Eve, 2015 - it kinda sucked, I've got to say. Six months ago, my 25-year marriage ended. This was my first New Years Eve post-separation. I...
Marked differences between male and female sexuality was supported by solid evidence around the globe. Such distinctions are getting blurred in developed countries.
In the same way, people progress and grow at different stages. Sometimes we teach and lift in relationships, other times we learn and take but the most fulfilling association is where there is a degree of equity in psychological evolution.
A real man knows what he wants in a partner, and once he has found that special someone, he commits himself and his whole life to them. Your happiness becomes his happiness. He stays loyal to you because he understands that one true love is enough for a lifetime.
Last week, I found a love note. Or what I would classify as a love note even though it was written on a large, yellow Post-it. I read it 4 or 5 times and something stuck with me about it.
Patience might be one of the hardest things to manage. But, if you are wise enough to find it, your divorce journey will be a lot smoother. AND it will have a happier ending. Instead of ending up in the garbage shoot, you'll find yourself polishing your golden egg.

It's down to the wire. You've only got a few days to figure out what you can give your divorcing friend for Christmas. You don't want to get too personal, yet you don't want to seem insensitive either. You want to be helpful, but you don't want to meddle. So, what is the perfect gift? How about a book to either help them through their divorce, or forget about it for awhile?
