Plus, going through your HMO’s provider book isn’t going to tell you what you want to know about the therapist you’ll be working with. I’ve been seeing therapists on-and-off for a decade and a half now, and I’ve learned a bit about shopping for a new one on the way. Here’s how it goes… Keep reading »

New Year, New You
Everything you need to kick 2012 off right. Read More »

My main goal for self-improvement this year is simply to be kinder to myself. I’ve realized that my stringent standards, constant self-criticism, and inability to say “no” have done nothing but suck the life out of me. Lately, I’ve been too exhausted to do anything at all. And I know that’s not good. I don’t want to stop being driven. I don’t want to stop growing as a person. But I need to learn how to ease up on myself so I have space to grow and achieve. This year, I’m endeavoring to cultivate more balance in my approach to my life. After the jump, some ways I plan on being kinder to myself. Keep reading »

The right sentiments expressed in a sincere way can turn a guy we’ve barely noticed into someone we’d like to make the center of our universe. Don’t think we only have long memories for the things guys have said that have turned us off. Hot things men have said also live forever in our minds. No, I will never forget the guy who told me he wanted to live alone in a yurt, but when given the option, I prefer to remember the guy who told me he could listen to me talk forever because he “loved the sound of my voice.” It turned me into a goo puddle. I keep that memory in my pocket for rainy days. After the jump, a collection of the sexiest, most goo-ifying compliments we’ve ever received. Good work guys. Keep reading »

Enthusiastic Consent. I’m a fan. For any of you not in the know, Enthusiastic Consent is a way to make sure that yes really means yes and no means no, during sex. It’s an ongoing conversation during sex itself, where partners listen to all manner of cues to make sure that what’s happening is really wanted. Scarleteen has a good definition here. Enthusiastic Consent is a term designed to get people talking to each other about sex so that when the sex happens, everyone is on the same page, happy and in alignment with what’s supposed to happen.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Think before you speak, as you’ll need to soften your words for your baby to fully grasp what you want to communicate. However, don’t be too gentle or they won’t get the clue that there are repercussions if they don’t heed your warning. Yes, there’s a fine line you’ll have to talk, but if you pay attention to the response, you will know how to adjust your words accordingly.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Don’t bust a nut trying to appease anyone now. If you have to slow it down with the emotions, feel free to follow your heart. After all, you have to be honest with yourself if you want anything to turn out the way you desire, as in setting ground rules and a pace you can live with. Plus, if that other can’t agree to your peace of mind, what other red flags do you need? Keep reading »
