Seriously, Calm Down About Marriage

friends-get-engaged

Hey, guess what? I’m here with good news! Stop worrying about getting married.

I know this seems sudden. It’s only a normal Friday in May and you’re probably just living your own life.  But let’s be honest with ourselves. We think about getting hitched all the time. We think about marriage with awe and a sense of wonder, the way we look at marriage on Pinterest; and the pretty lace, peonies with twine around them, engagement pictures with your honey gazing at you like he NEVER has before. We also think about marriage in a state of terror and panic. When is it going to happen to me? Why are engagements popping up everywhere on Facebook but avoiding my life like the modern-day plague?

6 Annoying Couple Habits And How To Break Them

Nick and I were at a dinner party recently, and one of the couples there had the most annoying habit: whenever one of them was telling a story, the other would correct them constantly. And these weren’t major, necessary corrections like “no, silly, his death sentence was exonerated!”, they were trivial corrections about tiny, insignificant details, like the color of a car their mutual friend was driving, or if something happened in April instead of May. It was so bad that by the end of the night I wanted to scream, “Just let them tell the damn story!” This experience got me thinking about bad couple habits — the annoying habits that often manifest themselves when people get in relationships. What are they, and how do you fix them? Read on to find out! Keep reading »

13 Signs Your Relationship Is In Trouble

Your relationship is also always changing in perceptible and imperceptible ways. Even the most rock solid union is in a state of flux. Like nature, relationships have seasons and rhythms. During each “season” you build a stronger union or drift apart. Your thoughts, words, attitudes and behaviors dictate the direction in which change moves. Are you headed toward more intimacy and closeness or away toward isolation and alienation? Read more on Your Tango…

Life After Dating: The Inescapable Logistics Of Love

The Inescapable Logisitics Of Love

“I just assumed that when I met my soulmate and fell in love, all of these annoying day to day things would fall into place.”

I’m on the phone with a friend of mine, who’s a couple years into a relationship that is overflowing with romance. Their pairing has everything: the meet-cute; the deep, spiritual connection; the sizzling sexual chemistry; the stimulating intellectual back and forth; the aligned life goals and values; the mutual belief that the other is the most amazing human to ever grace the Earth.

They’ve committed to a life together, they own a house, they’re very, very happy. There’s just one problem: they can’t for the life of them figure out how to plan their weekends. Her go-with-the-flow attitude clashes with his get-shit-done vibe and all of a sudden their dreamy love connection is imploding into a cranky spat about how long they’re going to spend at Home Depot and who hit the snooze button for the fourth time.

“I know we’re meant to be together,” she says, “so why can’t we figure this out?” Keep reading »

5 Everyday Things That Drive Us Nuts (For No Reason)

things-that-make-us-angry

We all have pet peeves. We all have rage triggers. For some people, it’s loud chewing. For others, it’s people who point when they talk. But sometimes, even though our hearts race and our fists clench, we know we’re wrong. Or if not wrong, we know we’re overreacting. And it just doesn’t matter. We can’t help it. These things drive us nuts, and somehow knowing that we shouldn’t get upset only makes us more angry. Read more on Cracked…

10 Physical Signs That Someone Is Lying To You

woman-who-lies

How do you spot a liar if their pants are not on fire?

No one likes being lied to. Wouldn’t it be excellent to be able to just smell a lie as it comes out of someone’s lying mouth? Yes, if you’re kind of paranoid and think everyone is lying to you.

Lie detection is not at perfect art. Experts have managed to pin down some signals of dishonestly, but even the most technologically up to date polygraph can be deceived by skilled fibbers. Since you’re likely not a forensic specialist dealing with a sociopath and just want to know if your friends and family are pulling fast ones on you, here are 10 physical clues that indicate someone is lying to you. Read more on The Gloss…
