I want a better love life, and so I have already begun making better choices. These choices are different for me, and it feels uncomfortable because it's not what I'm used to.

Marriages and relationships are much more likely to succeed when we don't put the need to be married or in a relationship ahead of the person we choose. In other words, the person we end up with should be the one we really want to share our lives with, not someone who fits the role.
A girl will move mountains for a man that adores, appreciates and truly loves her. A woman can sense a fake so don't do these things without pure intentions in your heart.
When you're single, there is so much pressure to assure everyone around you that you're okay that it's easy to fall into the reflex of saying "My career is amazing!" and "I'm having such a blast with my friends!" But the truth is, most people -- married and single -- don't have that.
If you are looking for love online, a great profile is key. Of course you need compelling photos, but those who are looking for a real relationship will look beyond a pretty face to find out what you are about.

I don't want someone to rush how I live my life. My life is just that: mine. The men and women around you who are single? It's their choice whether they want to hit the bars and have fun or try to settle down by finding the right person.
My socioeconomic background (and the teen mom status and high school level of education that came with it) was always lingering in the back of my mind, making me feel very inadequate. But it also made me work even harder to keep up and grow as much as I possibly could.
There's a groundbreaking new sex book that could change my life. But I'm afraid to read it.
There are more than 124 million single Americans, by choice or chance, outnumbering those who are married. Clearly, the vision we have of the nuclear family, living with a white picket fence somewhere in suburbia, is outdated.
You don't have to be dating in midlife to know that dating in your 20s was a whole lot easier and more fun. We all know people who are divorced, widowed or never married and we've all heard their common lament: It's hard to find an interesting date when you are no longer young.

I polled over a dozen single women and here are seven things they want their married friends to know. One item on the list? They're not after your husband.
My biggest regret is that I didn't cherish my old, retired machine, until it was too late. Going forward, I will refrain from making trivial complaints about the new machine. I won't push the machine to do things it shouldn't do. Instead, I will appreciate all of the things it can do.
