britta-are-you-breaking-up-with-meThe age old song is true; “breaking up is hard to do.” You’ve invested so much time and energy into this person, there’s no way you can let him/her fall out of your life. You love each other (or so you think), so it’s worth fighting for, right?

In some cases, yes. The effort is worth it, he/she will change, your relationship gets better, and you realize why you fell in love in the first place. From experience, however, I can tell you this isn’t always the case (life isn’t a fairy tale, who knew?). There are some people you will date that you cannot change, and as much as you hope, will never give you what you need in a relationship.  Continue Reading

giphy (99)There are certain things you can always count on from your girl friends.

They understand the healing power of a latte. If you need feminine supplies, they will not rest until the correct product is slipped discreetly into your hand. No matter how busy life gets, they will always down for brunch. And most importantly, if you are experiencing relationship troubles, they will be there at the drop of a hat to listen, analyze and give advice.

Even if it’s three in the morning and you’re freaking out over a text message laced with mixed signals, you know that all you need to do is put out the bat signal — like magic, they will materialize, wine in hand, to help you sort through the mess. It’s a beautiful thing, really. Continue Reading

3c820c84f45d194f9a28db7c5d09843cThe excitement of Valentine’s Day is winding down, leaving many of you wondering “now what”? You’ve spent the last week showering your partner with gifts, affection and fancy dinner reservations; love was in the air. But now it’s back to your regularly scheduled relationship. *sigh*

The way I see it, couples have two choices: surrender to the post-Valentine’s Day slump OR find a way to make every day the day of love. It really is that simple. Continue Reading

tumblr_nhm5szkh1t1tsnl0do1_500Let’s play a little Valentine’s Day fantasy game, shall we? Don’t worry; this will be super easy and fun.

Here’s how to play: Relax your body… take a deep, deep inhale… let it all out with a sigh. Take a few more breaths until you feel yourself getting languid and relaxed. Now start to imagine your ultimate Valentine’s Day date.

Let’s fast-forward through the dinner and champagne, the eating too much candy or hiding disappointment that someone forgot you don’t actually like red roses. Instead, focus on all the ways your lover makes you feel. Picture your bodies entwined, kissing, maybe playing a little rough before lightly brushing your fingertips over their body. Now hold on to this thought—no, hold on to this feeling—because this is how you plan the ultimate Valentine’s Day. Continue Reading

f6621dc0467f97bbc75bfb27af4fd4c5Couples everywhere have been haunted by images of what the traditional, monogamous relationship should look like. You know, boy meets girl, they fall in love, stay together forever and have babies; The End.

While this idea reflects the majority of relationships out there, it isn’t the only option. An alternative, known as an open relationship, has existed alongside monogamous relationships for quite some time now. Continue Reading

2b2016e0-9835-48a9-9b5b-11947649207aWe, as adults, are all about long-term investments. We invest in a relationship that we believe will go the distance. We invest in our 401k, we invest in our dream homes and our dream cars. And yet, we never think to invest in one of the most vital aspects of our relationship – our dream sex life. We focus so intently on the other pieces of the puzzle, and let sex just fade into the background without even realizing how important it really is. Continue Reading

Why is it, that the holidays can still inspire awe and wonderment… in adults?  Especially in our modern times, isn’t it fascinating that we still get so excited to celebrate old traditions and sing songs about Santa Claus? We know the truth behind that naughty Elf on the Shelf and we’re not likely to hear sleigh bells ring anywhere but the mall. Yet, somehow our eyes still light up and our hearts feel a little more full this time of year. Why is that?

Because love.
