Some men today fear and shun a relationship with a “successful” woman. Obviously, it takes a secure man to emotionally handle being with a woman that is more highly educated, more successful, or with a greater income. And it takes an even greater man to support her morally and unconditionally.

She gave it a shot, but instead of discovering she enjoyed it, she was assured she never wanted to do it again! What is a girl to do when our ideas of foreplay or sex aids don't match up?
It would be excellent if there was an equation, a check list, or some elaborate chart to complete on a spreadsheet in this post to help you determine whether it's a good idea to move in with someone. But there isn't. This is only a story about how I finally decided to take that step.
Fall is gaining ground, but that doesn't mean things need to cool down one bit. In fact, now that summer is drawing to a close, we think it's time to take things up a notch, and here are some ideas for going about doing just that.
