7 Things You Should Feel Comfortable Doing In Front Of Your Man

I think it’s so annoying when girls won’t eat a big meal in front of their date, or just have to wear a full face of makeup whenever a guy they like is around. We’re humans, not dolls with no organs, and last time I checked, men feel pretty comfortable burping and the rest around us. This piece on Madame Noire listing “7 things you should be comfortable doing around your man” is right on target. Unless he accepts you the way you are, it isn’t true love!  Read more

I’m A March Madness Widow

We had just sat down to breakfast at a quaint Connecticut inn last Monday morning, during a romantic midwinter getaway.

The fireplace was roaring. Calming new age music piped softly, and our innkeeper was busy preparing us a small feast. Perfect, I thought. It was precisely the kind of escape I’d imagined when we planned the trip weeks ago. Jon turned to me and smiled. “Can you hand me the sports section?” he asked.

I suppose I should have expected this: It is mid-March, the time when many a man’s fantasy turns to college hoops. In the coming weeks, I knew from experience, there would be brackets to fill out and seemingly endless games to watch with hawk-like vigor. But that wasn’t all. Read more…

How A “Man Cave” Can Strengthen Your Relationship

My husband’s birthday was the day after Valentine’s Day, so celebrating is a double whammy. Buying him gifts for the two holidays was tough because I like buying him sentimental things for Valentine’s Day and useful things for his birthday. He is a practical man; he enjoys working in the yard and fixing things in the house. I encourage this part of him because he has a stressful job and working on things seems to relax him. I had been bugging him since the holidays about what he wanted for his birthday, so the week before his birthday when he came to me with a big grin on his face pointing to a magazine telling me, “This is what I want,” I paid attention. It was inside a Prime Living Magazine, for which I write, where he found his dream gift: a “man cave” you could build at home.  Read more …

Heidi Klum hasn’t utter a peep other than a small tweet on January 31 regarding the end of her seven-year marriage to Seal. It seems she’s uncomfortable telling anyone about it, but she’s finally opening up a little. In the latest issue of Elle, the 38-year-old shares her emotions about the whole break. ”I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado,” she says. “It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness—with you wanting it or not wanting it—is another tornado… But as hard as it is, so is life. And sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn’t expect.” Read more…

Sex With Your Ex: Always A Bad Idea?

If you asked someone on the street, “Is sex with an ex a good idea?” The answer would likely be a resounding, “No!” In fact, according to our Break Up With Your Ex research, a whopping 81 percent agree that ex sex is always a bad idea. Psychologists, however, seem to disagree. A recently released study published in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology suggests that sex with a former lover isn’t so bad after all.

Researchers observed the post-breakup adjustment of 137 married couples who had recently separated. Many stayed in touch with their former partners, and of those couples, the ones who were still having sex were actually doing better psychologically than those who weren’t. Read more…
