Once people enter into a relationship and become a couple, it’s common for them to start doing a lot of things together. As a former speed dating host, I got to talk with a lot of people about the dating process – their frustrations, their hopes and fears. There’s nothing I love more than bringing a fresh perspective to people, specifically how to have more fun with dating, especially skeptics.
Interesting hub! I think what’s important to remember though is that a lot of long-distance relationships don’t start out that way, they do start when you’re living in the same place or relatively close by, it’s just that life might drag you apart. In this case, I really have to disagree with the first two points you made. It’s not hard to trust someone you love, and if it is then you probably shouldn’t be with them in the first place. And if you truly love someone, then you won’t even think about cheating on them.
Anyone who’s spent a lot of time with a narcissist knows, deep down, that the person causes them pain – especially if it’s a love relationship. If you’re still in a relationship with your … Read more
Note: Though this article is directed towards Muslims, it applies to everyone in the realm of dating, those looking for love and coming up unsatisfied etc. I hope that those of us who recognize this trend take it upon ourselves to be laser focused about raising up our male children to be something different. I heard someone say once that being a male isn’t the same thing as being a man. This world needs more of the second one.
I don’t have kids, so I may not be the best person to give advice on this. I can tell you that Narcissist thrive on negative emotions and getting a rise out of people – so it is a good idea to keep a lid on your emotions when dealing directly with the Narcissist, remaining very calm doesn’t give them any ammunition. Staying calm also models for your children how to deal with their Narcissist parent. Seek out a support group like CoDependent’s Anonymous. A lot of people with kids go to those groups, so you might be able to develop a network of friends who can guide you. Good luck!

Of course that goes without saying. You will be quite surprised that one out of every three couples gets married for all the wrong reasons. Two out of three couples get married in too much of a hurry without knowing what they are getting into. That leaves only one out of three marriages that will work. If you are having trouble in your relationship investing in relationship guides to help you is nothing to be embarrassed about! Set a date with the people in your life who need your time. Schedule your time with God daily and write it on your daily planner if you have one. Plan a date with your husband and arrange for a sitter if needed. Sit down and listen to your children one on one. Let them know you are interested in them. Plan a fun girls’ night out next month. Maybe go to dinner or a movie or play tennis with a friend. Just remember to keep God’s perspective and balance when making your plans.
But this past weekend, I did something horrible. I went to a concert and drank so much alcohol. After 8 or 9 shots, I was making out with a … Read more

I actually believe his feelings for you are sincere. His arranging to have you with him, his breaking into a rant to your friend, it feels to me like his intentions are really good. I don’t think he’s an asshole. And I am not judging. I am just … Read more

By the way, it was I who sent that comment yesterday about the article I wrote for a school magazine! 🙂 I was having internet trouble and couldn’t guarantee my post would turn out right. No worries mate – good to see that you’ve moved beyond that initial question about your looks.

Ellie arrives in my office for her first session. She‘s visibly nervous. As we sit and talk, she places her eyes intently on her feet, breaking away periodically to catch my eyes and smile shyly. Your comment suggests sex is the prescription for a personal utopia… and that seems to me to be at least a ‘constricted’ understanding of humanity and happiness. You say ‘stop living out others repressed ideas’; the alternative is to live out someone else’s trigger-happy lifestyle.
Let’s say that you take a look at yourself and realize that your finances are not in the best of shape. Take the time to get this in order and see how you feel when you do. Probably a little bit better. Then, let’s say that you also realize that you are not in the best of shape. You can take the time to get in better shape and when you do – again you will feel better about yourself. And that is only going to enhance your chances for winning back your ex girlfriend or being able to attract someone else so that you don’t even think about her anymore.
It can be tempting to think you are more … Read more

It’s hard to meet people after college..so chances are you’ll find yourself at least considering dating a coworker one day. After all, that’s where you spend most of your time! Dating a coworker can be difficult—and in some cases, downright disastrous—but depending on the company you work for, it may be acceptable (though probably not advisable).

If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not – but listens more, so you can win her heart. That is why I advise our boys to read stories and watch movies more and to learn more beautiful phrases to tell girls.
Giving more and expecting less is one of the golden rules of every relationship. When you give more and expect less, you are being the best person you can be with your partner. I’m not saying you’re not going to get anything in return by being so … Read more

If he expects you to bend then he has to do some bending in return. You’re right – pragmatic, economizing,… and the truth is if he really wants to see you he will make the time. Especially if you meet him half way. High level of trust must be embedded in every relationship. With a lack of trust your relationship will never be long-lasting and healthy.
Go on vacation. A vacation is a great way to experience new things, build a new life without your ex, build relationships with friends and family (if you’re traveling with them or visiting them), and keep yourself occupied. Based on past advances, researchers believe data processing will become even more efficient in the future. The report speculates that computers could eventually … Read more
Dates in the future may not happen in coffee shops — instead, you might just sit in your living room with a virtual reality headset, according to a recent report from Imperial College London and eHarmony. RealHousewife – Yes, it sounds like you have such a jealous husband! Hahaha. You are lucky. Not sure about cashing in on that alimony just yet though. 🙂 Thanks for the comment! Text and email and send pics to each other more, if you’re not already doing that.
I don’t want to stop believeing my religion. It’s I know, but the more I grow, the more I get away from it. The more I age, the more being an athiethis sounds more logical to me, and I don’t know what to do. I am really scared. I’m 18 and I need help. I don’t have anyone to talk to about this. Both of my parents will probably disown me if I talked about my stuggles with my faith in Allah.
Simon, both sexes are frustrated. You had mentioned that divorce benefits women financially. That is not accurate, unless the husband was very wealthy. In most cases, his income was average and things get divided. … Read more

In my case, the realationship lasted almost ten years. I knew all along that was something very wrong with him, but I couldn’t quite put my fingers on it. It was very hard for me because I met him very young and naive and I dedicated myself completely to make him better. It took me a very long time to realize I couldn’t and even than I was unable to leave, regardless of how much I wanted it.
My general advice is that an Orthodox Christian should marry an Orthodox Christian because religion matters-especially after the honeymoon. However, you are right. There … Read more
