Choosing Monogamy

I was reading a Blogher blog by Susan regarding choosing monogamy or NOT choosing monogamy.  I really enjoyed reading everyone's comments although most of the comments aired on the side of polyamory.  Polyamory is, in my definition, the practice of open love.  Certainly it seems to be a much more openly discussed topic lately appearing on sex talk shows to Dr....more

"I Don't Need A Man" - I'm Calling BS On This Catch Phrase

Over the past three years since I got divorced, it is by far THE most popular statement I’ve heard from women: “I don’t need a man”.  And it’s been said with passion.  Power.  Ownership.  As if it’s been EARNED.   ...more
I totally agree!!! I desire to be with a man!!!more

I Know Our Love Is Real....And That's Good Enough For Me

It’s always a tricky situation when you get back together with your ex. It’s not enough to convince yourself that things have changed and are better (which is a feat in and of itself), but you also have to convince your friends and family that things have changed! I’m in the process of attempting to convince people right now; and either I’m not that convincing or they are not that forgiving. Whichever one it is, I’m failing. Therefore, they are failing to see the great MAN my ex is now, the great spiritual leader he has become and the great supporter he continues to be....more

Finally on One Accord

Here it comes…we both knew it was coming, but we were both avoiding it. Well, we can’t avoid it any longer. We were both anxious to understand “what we were doing.” We both know that we love each other; we’ve expressed that. And I think we both know the level to which we love each other, which is immensely, completely and entirely. But we had been doing too much thinking and not enough knowing. And the only way to know something is to say it. I needed to hear the words. I needed for him to say exactly what his intentions were for our relationship....more

Prelude to "The Talk"

As a couple becomes more attached to each other, I find that they are also more sensitive to things. They are more easily excited and more easily affected, but they are also more easily annoyed and more easily angered…...more

Dating Sucks

Breaking the legend about Italian men

Letting go

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who seems to have weeks with recurring themes -- a phrase, issue, or conversation that comes up again and again, sending you a message (and for me, a blog post idea). But I talked about it with my friend tonight, and she has the same experiences...feeling like after we've heard something at least twice in a week, it's a sign....more

Freak out!

Freak out! You feel like you're tied to the rails, and there's a train coming down the tracks at top speed.  There are tampons in your medicine cabinet right next to yo...more
