Emotional Cheating vs. Physical Cheating... Which is worse?

Ok, I’m not going to touch the question “who cheats more, men or women” right now, because I could argue for days that women are just as bad as men, if not more. So for the time being, I would like to figure this out; if cheating does occur which is worse… emotional cheating or physical cheating? For most people once you’re cheated on, it really doesn’t matter why it happened, how it happened, or how many times it happened; cheating is cheating and this is over. But should it be? Sometimes the situation and circumstance matters more than people think it does....more

I am Relationship.

 'I don't think we should date anymore'. Stop. I want you to stop and think for a moment about your first break-up. Who knows how long you were in that dark place or if you're even out. I thought I was far from the days of listening to 'Tears on my Pillow', myself. So, I'm 28 and dating. If you're older you're probably thinking, 'You still have time' and if you're younger you'd start off with, 'You're not that old, you still have time'. My first break-up (gulp) I found out that my boyfriend was dating another woman on Myspace....more

How to Survive an Awkward Situation

Although I have been blessed with many amazing qualities for which I am eternally grateful for, I have also been cursed with a few not-so-pleasant ones.  The good ones usually outweigh the bad ones, and I guess I appreciate that the universe has to somehow keep balance in the world. I just cant help but wish sometimes that I could trade qualities out, especially while making a first impression or on a first date....more

50/50 Relationships... Not so great...

It’s very odd to me how many people think relationships that are based on the 50/50 concept are the best and always seem to work out… the “Perfect Situation”. Well let me ask you this, how many 50/50 relationships do you know of? Better yet, how many of those 50/50 situations are actually GOOD relationships? Personally, I can’t think of any that are actually good. The few that I know of are full of endless back and forth back and forth… no one willing to concede the argument....more

How Sex Affects Women's Body Image



After reading an article written by a young woman who'd obviously just been dumped, I was shocked by her anger. However, after giving it some thought, I came to not only understand, but sympathize with this poor suffering heart-injured soul.  Read more  http://www.sheshouldhaveit.com Rachael R.

Pary of One.

All the women out there (and not to alienate the men, but I do not think I am able to speak for them) have done this.  I admit to being victim/active participant.  We just can’t help ourselves.  And at some point in your life, as you continue to read this (hopefully) and are saying to yourself, nope, I haven’t done that and never will, I suggest you just take a moment....more
