We all know what it’s like to become sexually comfortable with a partner after the novelty of a new relationship has worn off.
We often find ourselves having what some refer to as, “married sex” where you inform your partner that you want to have sex and then you both proceed to undress in front of each other while discussing the days events, never missing a beat.Read More
“Women would do well to make an effort not to change. There’s an old saying that I believe Albert Einstein said and it goes something like this: Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.” -A 49-year-old married professor from N. Dakota.
How eloquently his advice sums up one of the fundamental differences between men and women, especially when it comes to relationships.Read More
I’ve learned plenty from one failed marriage followed by three not so serious relationships. But I wondered if men share the belief that every relationship has something to teach us? And do they ever reflect on why their relationship ended?Read More
It’s the age-old question; does he cheat just because he can, or because something’s missing from his relationship?

Not too long ago I was out with some old work colleagues and I met a (let’s just say much younger) man. We ended up talking for about 15 minutes and he asked me for my phone number.

As a woman, I’ve always thought that men either talk to their wives, close female friends if they have them, or to their male friends. However, what I found in my interviewing is that most men don’t talk to anyone.Read More
“What were we thinking?” says my friend in response to my asking him what he’s learned from his 15 year marriage, “We had it all when we were younger, had all the freedom in the world, and we chose to end it by getting married. It’s still fun and I’ve been happily married, but now I have to be patient and calm and more understanding and it’s just different now.”
The definition of marriage has changed over the years but essentially it has become a partnership between two people who choose to make that partnership legal.Read More

Anthropologist, Helen Fisher PhD discusses in her article, The Realities of Love at First Sight appearing in O, Oprah Magazine November 2009, how real the experience of love at first sight can be for both men and women.

I believe that close male friends can add a wonderful perspective to a woman’s life and diversity to her friendships. But what happens if you find yourself having more than friendship feelings for one of those male friends.
Do men ever consider dating their close female friends and is it possible for them to see something more between the two of you?Read More
Without a doubt, the word pornography can elicit a variety of responses from many different types of men and women. Some people cringe just hearing the word while others have absolutely no issue with itRead More
Someone once asked me, “Do you think men ever get lonely?” My response at the time was, “It sure doesn’t seem like it.”
About eleven years ago I was going through a divorce and found myself feeling incredibly lonely. I knew that over time things would get better, but I always wondered if my ex-husband felt as lonely as I did.Read More
As a single woman in my early 40’s, I’ve occasionally asked myself the question, “Should I go with the moment and sleep with him, or should I wait for the right time?”
And when exactly is the right time?Read More
At various times in my life I’ve found myself sitting with my girlfriends, usually drinking a glass of wine, discussing what it is that makes a man decide to marry a particular woman.Read More
