Does Going On The Pill Curse A Potential Relationship?

I’ve been on birth control pills off and on since I was 21 years old. I started taking them in college, when I was sleeping with someone off and on. Looking back, I suspect that going on the pill is what made that relationship so irregular, because I have this theory that deciding to go on the pill is a complete relationship curse.

For The Week Of September 21-27, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Make your man work it and love it. There’s no reason you always have to be the one working it in bed, as that isn’t going to give your mind something to truly get lost in during those long hours when you are all alone and need that grand romantic fantasy to get inspired. After all, what else will drive you to get your eager beaver back in the saddle over and over again?

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Your patience is starting to wear thin and this is when you’ll be starting to get restless. As the places you think you should be are not aligning with the places you are in, you’re going to have to get brave to get your trajectory back on track. As of now, this is not the time to be wasting your energy on waiting.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your standards aren’t easy. The fact that you think that the ultimate prize you’re after should get handed to you on a platinum platter is hysterical. You know you would feel suspicious if it occurred miraculously, since it’s the drama, the struggle and romance that make you thrive. If it’s not a page turner, drop it.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

There will be a lot of things motivating you this week. Among them won’t be a sweet love affair that’ll take you into the winds of oblivion. Instead, drama may unfold at the office, as in a flirtation with someone that could make for a potentially messy situation. Of course, trouble has always been something that excites a girl like you. So, sure, get blown away!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Every time you sabotage yourself with some kind of reality-based comments that have you thinking in a purely linear way, smack yourself! Life is the product of your thoughts and ambitions. If you aren’t willing to see past the glass ceiling, then only you will be to blame. Options are there. Choose wisely.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Time to pick up the pace and forge a deeper intellectual connection with whomever you have on the speed dial. Just joking around and being all cutesy is fun, but it’s not giving you the juice you need to really feel the love. Brains matter. There is no reason you can’t break out those MENSA questions at will. Until you have Einstein on your reel, keep fishing.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

If you are going to sign on the dotted line, this is the perfect time to do it. Love and commitment are in your stars this week, as you will be feeling the peace of mind it takes to figure out what exactly it will take to make you happy and be in it to win it. Go ahead — work it out with your baby and let the love shine in, because it’s all there for the taking.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Timing is everything. If you find you and your object of desire aren’t synching up so well in the scheduling department, then this is the time you really will have to see how much you want it and how much time you are willing to sacrifice to make it happen. Of course, if this isn’t a two-way street and he’s if he isn’t making the first move, don’t even bother turning on your ignition.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You won’t have any self-control when it comes to lust this week, nor should you have to hold back. Your tastes will be sublime and there is no reason you can’t taste the fruits of your desire. After all, why dwell on the consequences when painting in the whole picture will take time? In fact, the slower the burn, the hotter the sensations.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Turn up the charm and make them worship you. This is your time of the year to let love affairs get out of hand. Seems you have powers beyond even your comprehension that will lure them exactly where you want them. So if you want to make it matter, don’t waste it on just anyone. Aim your target accordingly and you will surely capture yourself a bountiful feast.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you can feel your way through another flirtation that seems to have potential. This time around, you’ll need backup. It’s time to really be clear with yourself about what you are after — and go with it! The less you leave to the imagination, the more real it will be. At this stage in your game, it’s time to learn that honesty and directness have their good points.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

According to researchers, a man shows how much he cares with time and money. This week keep this in mind: If you don’t have both in spades, it’s time to negotiate with yourself what he is worth to you. Patience is great, but not if it is costing you valuable time and self-esteem. Look at the cold hard facts — they don’t lie.

How Dirty Dancing Ruined My Love Life

I was 10 years old when my mother took me to the movies to see “Dirty Dancing.” I, like so many women, fell head over heels in love—with the movie, with the soundtrack, and most definitely with Patrick Swayze. I loved that movie so much that when I couldn’t sleep at night I used to recite the movie in my head line by line.

Even in a relationship or marriage, a little bit of flirting goes a long way. Here are seven tips to get him in the mood for loving.

1. Leave a sexy note in his jacket, briefcase, or on his computer screen if he is working virtually from home. Continue reading Keep reading »

Couple Who Met As Kids Got Married 70 Years Later

How we missed this cuteness in last weekend’s New York Times, we have no idea. Rowland Fellows, 84, and Beth Ashley, 83, met when they were 13 and 12 years old, respectively, and their families were both vacationing in Five Islands, ME. Back then, they were friends, but Ashley had a major crush on Fellows. “I thought he was very, very cute,” she said. “I kept wishing he would kiss me and become my boyfriend. It was a little girl crush, but it was very serious on my part.” They saw each other every summer for four years, but crush never developed into anything. “I guess I just wasn’t a very romantic young man,” Mr. Fellows told the Times. “But Beth was sort of a tomboy, and I looked at her as more of a buddy.” Poor Ashley had been relegated to the virtually inescapable friend zone.
