It's Not Me, It's You

I’ve always accepted blame for things that are my fault. Even as a young teenager, I didn’t try to cover up my often rebellious acts by refusing responsibility. I copped to whatever I did and accepted the consequences. Many women take the blame for things that they didn’t do just so they can keep the peace and avoid a potential confrontation.

How to Maintain Intimacy When You are Not in the Mood for Sex

I have gone through several sexual dry spells in my lifetime. During these times, I was so uninterested in having sex that my partner would get worried and even slightly offended. And I was, too. Offended at my own body, that is. I mean, I love my partner and find him attractive so why did sex of any kind feel like a no-go? I didn’t even want to try to be turned on, if I’m being honest.

Self Love is the Key to a Healthy Relationship

A friend of mine recently went through a tough divorce. It was one of those ugly breakups where one person was fine, relieved even, and the other, my friend, was shattered. I’ve known her for years and watched her marriage go from happy and loving to just plain dysfunctional.

Bringing Ritual Back to Relationships


I just read t his funny story about a couple’s weird little ritual and it got me thinking. I’m always dwelling on the things my husband and I used to do before having children, like eating out whenever we want, sleeping in on weekends, having sex all the time (well, it seems like that in retrospect).
