One of the most important things to consider when selecting a partner is compatibility. The definition of compatibility is “capable of existing together in harmony”. Well duh. That sounds like a no brainer. Of course you would want to exist in harmony with your partner. Otherwise, what's the point???
Men can get into relationships easily. Some men find that a challenge. Then there are times relationships fizzle out, become toxic, was a lesson or they will last. There is so much to this complexity of a relationship and of a woman. I have written my most beloved piece called, “How to Keep Her.” This time I want to dive into the things that turn a woman off and on. The things that make her lose interest. I’m a woman who wants to help our fellow men try to navigate the complex nature of a woman and their brain.
Abuse is an understandably uncomfortable topic for most people, sometimes because of the way we've been treated in the past, but more often it is about the sense of unease that we feel knowing it's more common than we'd like. Recognising abuse isn't always easy, however, especially when you're living in it.
You've gotten this far. A date is finally set, but it's just a matter of what you plan to do together. Typically your thought process would suggest the classic, "Dinner and a Movie," would be perfect. Wrong. If this is your first time meeting each other, or you've seen them a few times in real life, this option might not be comfortable for you or your partner. Here are a number of other suggestions for your first date:
It's Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day, Christmas, Anniversary or the birthday of a loved one and we have the same problem every year. What could the perfect gift be?
The moment you wake up, tossing about, flipping your pillow over so many times, you reach out and all of a sudden there is nothing but a cold pillow on the other side of your bed waiting to greet you! Other than the 3 seconds of pure pleasure from feeling that cold pillow touch your rosy cheeks, fades just as easily back to the disdain you're feeling for the reality that you are, indeed, single!! Say it again, and again, louder for those in the back... I am SINGLEEEE... and I hate it, but I don't know how to get out of it!
If you've never been in a relationship before with a gaslighter, consider yourself lucky. What is a gaslighter? The term comes from a 1938 stage play about a man who psychologically manipulates his wife's perception by playing tricks on her to convince her that she is insane. For example, dimming the gas lights in their home and pretending that nothing has changed, or convince her that she is misremembering events and conversations that did in fact take place.
One of the biggest mistakes a couple can make during their relationship is not moving in with one another. Why you may ask? There are steps to take in a relationship to keep it moving in the right direction such as taking vacations together, spending holidays together at one another relatives, and of course marriage. Moving in together is just another one of those steps couples should take together to keep their relationship healthy and on track. There is a strong belief that skipping some of these steps or not doing any of them at all could mean a few different things... your partner is afraid of commitment, he/she is ashamed of you, or they don't see having a future with you, so why bother? But, we aren't here today to talk about these depressing issues. Instead, I have compiled a list of Do's and Don'ts for moving in with your partner.
Sometimes, there are two events that a girl looks forward to in her life: prom night, and tying the knot with their soulmate. Both involve flowers, getting dressed up, celebrating with friends and proposing to that special someone.
My father always advised that living with a woman is not always going to be the easiest thing to do in life, however, if I ever wanted to be happy and achieve true equilibrium within my marriage and within my home, then I would first have to master the art of doing the things that make my wife happy and focus on creating a happy environment for her. My father always said: "If Mamma's happy, everybody's happy. If Mamma's not happy, ain't nobody happy." One of Dad’s goals was to create a great environment for Mum and doing so meant that happiness filtered down to the rest of the house. He based a lot of his relationship advice to me on this saying. Where did he get this from...? His father maybe? Nope... a fridge magnet.
The 5th grade is when I learn that girlhood is a battlefield.
