    My First Date

    If you haven't read my previous post "What Do You Do When You Don't Know How to Date"... well it's actually not a problem at all because it was awful to begin with. If you are so inclined you can take a quick look at it, but I can sum up the train-wreck that was that post faster than you can read it.

    What Are Soulmates & Karmic Relationships?

    What Are Soulmates & Karmic Relationships?

    Throughout time the definition of soulmates has become a likeness to fairy-tales, Prince Charming and happy ever afters. The deeply spiritual and often turbulent connection between soulmates has been reduced to ones marital partner, boyfriend or girlfriend- when in fact, the two relationships aren't one and the same. A soulmate isn't the person you married just because, well... you're married to them. Not all soulmates are romantic partnerships, and people can certainly have more than one. It's often a case where two soulmates struggle to have a successful relationship due to the karmic debt they share and the pain they've caused each other during their spiritual journeys. It's certainly not all doom and gloom, but not always the romantic fantasy that is sold to us in movies.

    Rocky Balboa’s Expert Dating Advice

    If you are a self-motivator, a sports fan, or simply a Sylvester Stallone fan, then chances are that you've heard Rocky Balboa's speech that he gives his son in the 2006 film. (Need a refresher? Check out the movie scene above. A written transcript of the speech can be found here.) A motivational gem, it has helped carry me through everything from sporting competitions to traumatic life events. While sports and difficult life experiences go hand in hand with the theme of the speech, it doesn't take much to see how it can apply to another aspect of life: Dating. Here is why parts of this speech really stood out to me in my dating days and why it can be useful for you too.

    High School Sweethearts on How They Made Their Relationship Last

    Romance is hard no matter how old you are, but high schoolers might just have the most difficult time with it of all. After all, the whole point of high school (besides, I guess, academics) is for adolescents to learn how to participate in the social world. At my high school, however, there was no class on how to date and make friends with other people. Instead, I had to learn everything through trial and error.

    Is It Okay to Be Bi-Curious?

    I don’t think it’s a secret that the MOGAI community is complicated, or that there are a lot of misconceptions about the many, many identities encompassed within that umbrella. From contention around the term "queer," to questions about what the “A” in "LGBTQIA+" stands for, there’s a lot to learn and remember and unpack—and a lot of misinformation to contend with. Moreover, when dealing with such a large community, it’s inevitable that you encounter differences of perspective and opinion, which unfortunately can turn heated.

    Queer, Umbrella Terms, and Alternative Language

    There has long been contentious and problematic language surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community. Even the aforementioned acronym can be controversial, as our understanding of non-heterosexual, non-cis/non-binary, and generally non-normative identities expand and more letters are needed to encompass the whole spectrum. One word often used for such an umbrella term is “queer,” but this isn’t universally accepted, either.

    Peter and Fred boarded a plane six days after I arrived in Beijing. I was busying myself snapping photos at every turn, recording expenses and conversations, for the Travel feature. The sunlight slanted across my frequent haunt, the Palace Museum, in the early mornings of a beautiful spring. I satisfied my homesickness for Washington, D.C. by wandering through this temple to the arts. For the sake of the article, I’d also visited the typical tourist destinations of China, and was now preparing to tour various Buddhist temples in and around the city.

    Breaking out After the Breakup

    Are you ready to leave your shell? I talked about giving yourself time to learn about you in "Surviving The Art of Cheating". When you are getting over a breakup, especially one that involved cheating, you have to take all the time you need to heal. The mind and heart battle is hard, and it's grueling. You can’t rush it or you will end up back in the same place of blaming and trying to go back to the cheater. There is no race. You will know you’re ready to break out of your shell and face the world when you can evaluate your past relationship with honesty and not fall apart at the mention of the cheater’s name.

    Dating After Cheating

    Dating After Cheating

    
You don’t realize how strong you really are until your heart is broken and you go through the process of making yourself feel whole again. It takes time, sometimes a long time, to heal a broken heart, but it’s not a race you need to win - take the time you need to know who you really are. We sometimes forget that in a relationship you give part of yourself to make compromises. Remember that when it's over you can take that back. Take ownership and to learn what YOU want, not anybody else. 
Dating is not something you should rush into, especially if you want it to turn into something serious. You have to take your time to get to know people as friends first. A relationship without friendship will never be a lasting relationship. When you date someone, don't look at them as a potential love interest, but as a person you just enjoy going out with, with no sex involved. You should get to know the person first, and that takes times. I don’t mean just the good act that people put on, but the real stuff they hide deep inside because it may not be so nice to face. It's up to you to decide if that is something you can and are willing to deal with. It takes a honest discussion with yourself. The more you date, the more you get to see not only what you’re looking for, but also what you don’t want from a person. Be patient. Don’t get serious too fast and throw yourself headlong into a situation just because all your friends have somebody. You are still fragile in your heart, so don’t go on a date and think you’re in love just because someone said all the right things on that first date. The second date you might see a totally different person that you don’t like at all. When you feel like you are ready to date, do it with another couple. This way, you have someone to make you feel a little less nervous and you have a second set of eyes and ears on the person you are dating. If possible, even if it may sounds strange, don’t just date one person - remember these are supposed to be casual, amicable dates, not romantic dates with no 'hidden agenda'. Romance shouldn’t be in your thought process for a long while. If you think it's a 'love at first sight' kind of situation, what you need to do is go back home and stay put until that feeling goes away. Sure enough, there are rare occasions when you meet someone and both of you immediately know that love is in the air, but since you just got over a bad experience, I wouldn’t trust my judgement. Again, take your time, have some fun and be true to yourself. You want to feel whole, and if you think that sleeping with somebody right away is going to fix you, then you’re wrong. You will only hate yourself the next day, don’t do it. This is another situation where the intervention, the interference if you will, of another couple could help you avoid making that big mistake. The more you go out and the more people you meet, the more you can and will trust yourself. There’s nothing worse than having your heart and mind fighting, and that happens once you get into a relationship. Don’t forget all you’ve been through to get to this point. Another thing you need to steer clear of at all costs is comparing people to your ex. That’s a big no. You should never compare and contrast people, and if you do then you aren’t ready to date. You still have some issues that haven’t been resolved. You have to be able to look at each person individually, and not judge that person based on your past experiences. Everyone has their own qualities and you need to accept them based on what you think will contribute to your happiness, regardless of what your relationships were like in the past. You want to be yourself, not who you think that person wants. You, and only you, know who you are, so don’t put on any act because eventually it will be exposed. Have some fun dating, and enjoy just being able to breathe some fresh air, because now you are free.

The next blog will be about the struggle between heart and mind when a relationship ends.

    The Forgotten Art of Romance

    The Forgotten Art of Romance

    This article does not apply to everyone, because there have always been those whose main focus is the sex act, even from childhood. This story is about the lost art of boy meets girl and romance follows without complication. When I was in the fourth grade in elementary school a boy in my class wrote on a piece of paper, balled it up and threw it on the desk of the girl sitting next to me. When she opened it the note asked? “I love you do you love me?" She replied, then balled up the paper and asked me to send it back. Throughout the day this “couple” had several occasions where they passed notes like this.

    I Found My Voice

    I Found My Voice

    I’ve been crying ever since I woke up this morning and I can’t stop asking myself “Why?” I also can’t stop asking myself, “Who?” or “What?” I’ve been trying to just move along in my day, but I am finding it impossible. I am losing myself, slowly, into the depths of something I cannot understand. And nobody will explain it to me, no matter how much I plead. And now it’s come down to the moment that I have to be honest with myself. And everybody else if there’s ever going to be closure to this sad state in the world. The thing about it is, I haven’t been honest throughout this entire book. But I’m going to be honest now. Because no matter how hard I try, I just can’t see things any other way. I see it in my head, no matter how hard I try to convince myself it isn’t real. And no matter how hard others out there try to beat me down to silence. I’m going to do what they’ve been promoting me to do all along. I’m going to speak my truth and be honest, as I see it from my point of view. From the picture in my head.

The only one who wouldn't go out. The one always upset. Always jealous and longing for love and attention.

    What Color Are You Seeing?

    What Color Are You Seeing?

    Like many people you’ve probably heard phrases such as ‘never give up!’ Truly a powerful phrase, although you can only keep tackling the same situations with the same approach until it comes back to bite you in the butt. This in turn becomes stressful and very hard to keep up with especially if it’s scolding your kids every time they don’t finish their chores. Why does this happen? Ultimately, when situations arise that aren’t ideal we tend to emphasize things in a way that takes power away. I have witnessed this myself with how people talk to each other expecting things to be ‘done’ correctly. This color of seeing something as ‘wrong’ and fighting to fix it creates two opposing sides. With two opposing sides the reaction is to defend yourself and fight back because it’s human nature! Of course a child will fight back, they might even cut deep with their words which perpetuates this duel further. Wouldn’t it be swell if there was a way to skip that stress and extra fight just to make sure your child not only gets their chores done, but also learns mutual respect?

So you weigh things out and try to explain why a person might be this way or that.. what/who helped create these “bad” parts? Can you help them? Can you support them? Take their abuse?

    How Bisexuality, Monosexism, and Transphobia Are All Connected

    Commonly, bisexuality is defined as attraction to both men and women. For this reason, some people would argue that bisexuality is transphobic and cissexist – by specifying attraction to men and women, you exclude non-binary people. (Joyner 2016; Bailou 2015; galiagodel 2018; Collins 2017) This, like many accusations against bisexuality, doesn’t show the whole picture.

    Top 5 Things I Didn't Know Before I Got Married

    Top 5 Things I Didn't Know Before I Got Married

    First off, let me start by saying I am the wife, and I am very happily married. My husband and I have been married for about a year (which I know is not very long); however, everyday feels unique, and I fall in love more and more. That is not to say it hasn't come with its challenges like most wives would say. And I know for a fact I am not the only new wife out there discovering new and unexpected things about their husbands or themselves for that matter in such a committed relationship. I grew up in the South, where getting married is just something people do at a certain point in their life. I also haven't known many healthy relationships and haven't seen many successful marriages around me, but I had heard of them and believed in them and it never discouraged me from longing for that dreamy wedding and the idea of that handsome beau holding flowers in his hands to take me to dinner. I knew one thing and one thing only: anyone whom I have ever seen that is happy and successful are emotionally stable, live for more than just themselves and they eventually get married. I wanted to be this person. So I could tell you the short and dreamy way I met him, but I'll keep it simple. In short, we met at work (wouldn't recommend doing that however it happens), started to hang out and a few months later he proposed. We took a marriage class because, like I said before, I have never really seen a successful marriage in action...only heard of them. It was obviously very insightful with things that you kind of learn as you become an adult like communication is important, be respectful of the other's point of view, how you both are with money, how to deal with merging family, etc. So with my short time of being married to the most wonderful human being who is my husband, here are the top 5 things I didn't know before I got married.

    I'm terrible at replying to texts. I really am. Most people who know me know not to expect a swift reply. Some of my friends even have a running joke going that I'll get back to them in three to five business days. This does not mean I don't care, don't love the person who sent the message, or that I'm mad at them.

    Love 2.0

    Hi, I'm a 31 year old girl. I just separated from my partner after five years and I've been single for a while, but I can not know anyone. I would like to start having a relationship with someone, but my life is very stable and routine, and I find it difficult to meet new people. I've signed up for social activities but I haven't met anyone either. I'm thinking about downloading some apps to meet people but I'm a little embarrassed and afraid that it's not for me. Is it good that I sign up for these apps? Thank you.
