We all know love is blind. But we can most definitely train ourselves to be better at seeing. These are my 6 tips to gain better sight through your rose-coloured glasses, before someone else crushes them.
People try to find loopholes in their friendship, but sometimes there are real doubts. If you have been in a close relationship or in a married setting, it can be difficult to deal with a cheating partner.
Relationships are a lot more complicated for this generation since the way people meet and communicate has changed drastically. Younger people are taking love a lot less seriously and the idea of it in the traditional sense has pretty much disappeared entirely.

I was driving in my area and I happened to be on a road that was lined end to end with beautifully designed houses. As I continued to drive down the road, I noticed that my admiration for these houses had momentarily taken my attention and I was no longer focusing on the road ahead as I made my way home.

Do you love the thrill of a new person? Like a child on Christmas Day with a shiny new toy?
If you know me, you know I love online dating. I think it’s amazing. You can be as shallow or superficial as you want, but so is everyone else!

And every time I start swiping, I realize that men don’t really have great profiles.
Have you ever been inspired to help someone with a disability, or support an agency or group advocating for a disability?
In the fast paced, hectic, and often stressed out world we live in, it can be difficult to catch a break. People are usually out for number one.
