With the emergence of so many new online dating apps, it's inevitable that most single people will dabble online at some point during their single lives. However, online dating isn't for everyone. Want to see if online dating is a good match for your dating goals? Here are a few points to consider.
It's not always easy to identify which friends will become clingy -- sometimes low-maintenance friends go through rough patches and need more TLC -- but there are certain friends who will just continually suck the life out of you.
Sometimes it just makes it easier on you, easier on your heart and mind, if you simply stop trying to explain. Refusing to explain or defend your grief doesn't mean you let other people go on and on about it, continually telling you how you should live.
In life, three things are certain: death, taxes and occasionally having to clean out your closet. Whether you're as spare as Ghandi or as lavish as Imelda Marcos, it can be hard to muster up the chops for Spring Cleaning. A little strategy can help make the cuts less tough.
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.
We've been told through movies, music and literature that we're incomplete if we're alone. Only the presence of "another" can alleviate the void we feel inside and make us feel whole. In actuality, we feel the void when we're not aligned with ourselves.
For any mother or father to-be, becoming a parent brings a tidal wave of unexpected feelings, normal insecurities and new opportunities. Adjusting to this new identity offers the opportunity to deepen your relationship with your partner.
The Omega guy has been around forever, not just since the economic downturn. He is the ultimate narcissist, feeling entitled to live off anyone who will support him and make little, if any, contribution to the household.
The notion that there is one soul mate for everyone is ludicrous. If you expand the definition, a soul mate doesn't even have to be romantic. My best friend is a soul mate; my son is a soul mate; a man I knew but never even kissed is a soul mate.
Relationships do end, and it is important to stop viewing this as failure. The success or failure of a relationship should not be determined by it's length, but by our ability to allow another human being into our heart and grow from the experience.
