Sexual Regrets: I Wish I'd Experimented More When I Was Single

On the other hand, the holidays throw into sharp focus the fact that I’m alone. Every year I try very hard not to let that overshadow all the good, but it's still always there. ...more

Stop Telling Me to Get Married!

“When you’re young, everything seems so black and white,” I say to my friend. “As you get older, grey areas become more and more frequent.”Later, when the third person in two weeks tells me that I should get married, I find myself returning to this conversation. Did I ever dream, when I was young, of being married? I’m sure that I did, I mean, all little girls do, don’t they? And yet I don’t remember thinking much about it....more

The Comeback Kid: 6 Ways You Can Improve The Holiday Handover

No matter how much you know and trust that your child is safe, loved, and well cared for with your ex, it can be difficult having your kids away for a week or many weeks at a time.

When Did You and Your Parents Have "The Talk"?

I grew up surrounded by friends who seemed not only fascinated with sex, but were also perfectly comfortable discussing it in front of other people, regardless of our age. Yes, in elementary school my friends talked about sex. Although they weren't sexually active (which, now that I think about it, would have been horrifying), they spoke about sex in funny ways or as if they actually knew what it was all about....more
I'm still waiting for my talk...I'm now 36 with a son, so...might be moot at this point!?!? :-)more
