The Meal-Ticket Guy

Lately I've been reading blogs written by women, mostly young ones, who confess to dating men that they're not really interested in in order to get a free meal.  "Times are hard," they say, "and it's a good way to get out and have a good dinner in a nice restaurant."

Is There an "I" in "We"?

What does it mean to be in a relationship? Does it mean you are supposed to deny your own personal wants and desire to satisfy the desires of “us”? Or better yet, does it mean that you must give up all of yourself to demonstrate how much you are willing to put into the relationship? The selfish person in me believes that neither has to be true.

Is The Way You Trust Holding You Back?

 The Threshold of Trust If anyone has ever broken your trust, you know how difficult it is to hit the reset button on the relationship.  You develop this gnawing sense that if you forgive and restore the relationship, the person could hurt you again and you’d have no one but yourself to blame.  Most people would assume that the biggest issue in a relationship like this is the inability to let go of the past....more
