Is Power Play in a Relationship Worth It?
Power is defined as the ability or right to control people or things. We’ve all heard the saying "he wears the pants" to refer to a man who basically holds all the "power" in a relationship. But I always say…the best relationships are the ones where no one is wearing pants. But all kidding aside, to maintain a healthy relationship there must be a delicate balance of power. Each party involved should feel the freedom to truly be themselves and that their opinions and concerns matter. Everyone has something that they are good at, and the best partnerships work together as a team, acknowledging each other's strengths and weaknesses. So you want to have a balanced relationship? I’ve got a few ideas on how you might get there…
Why Communication Is Key in a Relationship
Good communication is the basis of any healthy relationship. Whether you are talking or listening, both are equally important. Men and women communicate in different ways, but it’s clear that for any relationship to work we need to find a common ground. Communicating happens not only through words but by body language and tone of voice as well. As human beings, we have a basic need to connect with others. In fact, true intimacy comes from revealing your "true self," which is done through proper communication.
When Is the Right Time to Bring Your New Relationship Into the Bedroom?
I’m sure everyone has read at least one book about relationships from the so-called "experts." Each author has a different opinion about intimacy, but an overwhelming majority of them advise waiting for two to three months before "hooking up." Personally, I’ve never dated a man that is willing to wait that long (and even I couldn’t/wouldn’t hold out for months on end). The truth is that everyone is different and there are no rules. I know couples that hooked up on the first night they met and are happily married with kids. Still others waste time dating for months only to find out there’s no sizzle in the bedroom. When to get intimate is a personal call only you can make. But I do have a few guidelines regarding this subject.
How To Drop the L Bomb the Right Way
Love makes the world go around. Love conquers all. It’s all about the love. Truly, love is one of the most important basic human needs. So why is it so hard to say? The L bomb is just what it sounds like…the first time someone says "I love you." Apparently, some men (I’m guessing the eternal bachelor types) compare saying "I love you" to an explosion with potentially disastrous consequences. But falling in love is an amazing experience and life just wouldn’t be the same without it. Nothing else in the world can make a person feel as special as when they are told they are loved. So I have come up with some helpful guidance when it comes to dropping the L bomb…proceed with caution!
How To Navigate Social Media and Dating Like a Pro
As if dating in the modern world wasn’t complicated enough, with the advent of social media, it’s become downright convoluted. While social media can be a great vehicle to obtain more information about the person you’re dating, it’s made the mating ritual awfully chaotic. From Tweets to Facebook statuses to Instagram hashtags…is anyone else feeling confused? Well, it doesn’t have to be if you follow my guidelines. Here we go…
Tips to Make the First Date Great
Chemistry is a very tricky thing. The definition of chemistry is a strong attraction between two people. Science can’t describe it or explain why it’s there. It could be anything from the sound of his/her voice to the way he or she smells. But if you’re really listening to your intuition, you should be able to tell if there’s any chemistry on the first date.
How To Make the Dating Revolution Work for You
In this Modern Age, there is a revolution going on between the "old" and the "new" way of thinking when it comes to relationships. As the divorce rate climbs higher, we celebrate because life is too short to live unhappily. But part of the learning process in life comes directly from intimate relationships—yet many of us today find ourselves single. Nature ensures that we continuously seek out a mate by the modern ritual we call Dating.
Defining the Relationship
The moment a man hears the phrase “we need to talk”, he immediately breaks out in a cold sweat. Yes, I’m talking about the dreaded where is this relationship going talk. Well, I have news for you men, some women dread it too. But wherever you fall on the dread scale, defining the relationship is something that needs to be done. After all, who revels in waking up day after day not knowing where your relationship is going? It’s brutal! And so DTR (defining the relationship) becomes a necessity…
