When you find someone you care about, do you take the opportunity to make a commitment with them?
If you’re not in a relationship and you want one, you can make a commitment to yourself to understand why you are not in one.
Here are 7 things that keep people from committing to a relationship. Which, if any, apply to you?
1. I am afraid I may choose the wrong person.
What if I don’t really love this person?
What if there is someone better around the corner? What if I am being used or manipulated for sex, money, citizenship, etc?
What if I find out later that my p

Sometimes we treat sex as our biggest enemy when in fact it’s the gateway to the biggest discoveries
All too often, I see women anchored down by what I refer to as “Good Girl Syndrome.” They’re unable to talk about what they want in bed. They’re uncomfortable being touched. They’re afraid of the taboo rather than embracing it.
Beliefs like this are so incredibly limiting. Breaking out of your “good girl” box doesn’t have to feel dirty or shameful … it’s liberating! Sometimes it can even be a huge relief. Bonus: You’ll feel sexier than EVER.
1. Understand your own sex appeal.
“Sex appeal” is communicating confidence in who you are and your unique attractiveness. This gives you the freedom to pursue without ex

Whether you’re starting a new relationship or already married, there are some things that don’t change, like the need to feel sexy, appreciated and needed.
And it’s not just women who want these things — men do, too!
Below are seven cute things you can say to your boyfriend — or any man you’re involved with at any stage of your love life — that will leave him glowing.
1. “You look great.”
Men have insecurities, just like women.
And whether he shows it or not, sometimes he’s wondering if his shirt looks better tucked in or out, or if his belly is sticking out a little too far over his belt.
This is an especially good compliment if he’s been going to the gym—why do you think he’s doing all that working out?
2. “I love your [insert body part].”

Here are seven common — yet totally overlooked marriage problems — that may be threatening your relationship, plus, expert advice to help you keep divorce out of your marriage.
1. A lack of eye contact
“When you ask most people about how they knew their partner loved them, they will often say that it was the way that person looked at them,” explains Opert. Having conversations without looking up from the phone or TV can sever that intimate connection. It may even prevent the release of phenylethylamine, a chemical that triggers feelings of romantic love, Opert says.
Try this: Set aside times for tech-free bonding. Have a cell phone-free dinner without any television background noise or vow to keep cellphones out of the bedroom.

This article, though brief, will succinctly describe some of the things I do and recommend to help people heal from sexual trauma.
Here are 7 keys to healing from sexual abuse and trauma:
1. Talk to people you trust.
Relationships are very important. Having loved ones or a friend or two to talk about the sexual trauma is a big part of healing. Talking gives the sexual trauma victim a chance to process the emotions and other parts of the memory but in addition, just the sense of feeling loved is very important for recovery.
Therapists such as myself also know that we need to develop a deep and trusting relationship with the client. The client needs to feel safe and as long as the client feels safe, the foundation is being laid for therapeutic healing.
2. Try EMDR Ther

Here are 7 types of relationship problems and how to fix them:
1. Unrealistic expectations
I see this a lot. You expect your partner to be the same person they were in the past. People are always changing. Are you the same person you were five years ago? The answer is probably no. But, you expect your partner to be the same person they were five years ago.
Learn to embrace change. It is part of life and part of your relationship.
2. Feeling bored with your relationship
After a while, it starts feeling like the same thing. This is when you need to take initia

How much a guy truly cares for you goes hand in hand with how much respect he shows for you. If you’re just starting a new relationship and you’re still not certain about your his degree of affection for you, there are some telltale signs that you have to pay attention to, especially in bed.
Here are 7 signs he has respect during sex.
1. He kisses your head.
Little signs of affection like this are huge. Giving a little kiss is a sign of big love because he doesn’t have to do it. He took the time out of your intense romp to think about giving you a different kind of affection.
2. His favorite positions are the ones where he can see your face.
While people love various types of sex positions, like doggy style where you can’t see the other person’s

Yes, I said it. Masturbation. It’s one of those things most of us rarely talk about publicly but most of us have done or continue to do privately. Exploring our sexuality is a normal part of our development, and masturbation is a typical part of this journey.
If masturbation is so common, why is it so hard to talk about? If it is a normal part of sexual development, how come we can’t talk about it openly with our friends and family?
There are perhaps as many answers to this question as there are people on earth, but the simple answer is this: masturbation is typically a solitary behavior. Many people learn to masturbate when they are at an awkward, insecure phase of development.
Consequently, it becomes a behavior that’s done in s

We size them up a lot, but for all the attention guys get for what they’re packing below the belt, it turns out most of us still know pretty much nada about the penis.
So in the spirit of ever-growing our knowledge about sexual organs, we’ve rounded up seven seriously weird facts about penises.
(And believe us, you’ll never look at one the same way again …)
1. Penises used to have hard spikes.
But guys lost them before we — as homo sapiens — evolved from Neanderthals. Scientists speculate that the penile spine helped quicken the time it took for a man to get an erection since it’s commonly found in promiscuous species like mice and monkeys.

Myth #1: Boys and men can’t be victims.
This myth, instilled through masculine gender socialization and sometimes referred to as the “macho image,” declares that males, even young boys, are not supposed to be victims, or even vulnerable. We learn very early that males should be able to protect themselves. In truth, though, boys are children—weaker and more vulnerable than their attackers—who cannot really fight back. Why?
When it comes to love, most people have the true definition of love so wrong.
Think about the lyrics to some of songs you’ve heard about love.
They talk about how hard they want to fall, or how loving can hurt. There are even lyrics about not being able to live alone with just themselves because their world revolves around their lover.
Movies and television shows portray the fairy tale ending of “happily ever after”. But that’s not what love is, either.
Here’s what love is and is not:
1. Love is not lust-filled or extreme.
Chemistry is important, but it shouldn’t feel like you lose yourself when you’re together.

We all know that masturbation feels good, but it’s about so much more than pleasure. Saving some time for self-love can make sex with our partner better by teaching us more about our body and our pleasure zones. It’s also amazing for many other reasons:
1. You get to learn about yourself.
One of the major of benefits of masturbation, besides pleasure, of course, is that women learn about their bodies and what pleases them, and are then able to share that with a partner during sexual encounters, says Dr. Emily Morse.
The more you know about your own body and pleasure, the more you can share with your sign

Imagine you have been chatting with a guy you really like on one of the dating sites.
He is attractive, has a nice sense of humor, a wicked smile, seems to be witty and, most importantly, is genuinely interested in you.
Finally, he asks to see you in person!
You put on your new dress and meet him at the hip bar you keep hearing about for a real date.
And here he is! Just as good, and even better, than you thought.
You have a few drinks, chat, laugh at his jokes, and it seems like you both enjoy yourself.
You hum all the way home, and can’t wait to see him again.
But the next day he doesn’t call or even text.
You can’t wait anymore, and by the evening text

Can you relate to any of these statements?
1. “I’m too busy.”
This is so common that it had to make the list at number one. You use this as an excuse not to work on love and it’s an easy thing to toss out there when you need to justify your perpetual singledom. But, are you really too busy? More than likely, the answer is no. How do you expect to maintain a relationship when you have this mindset?

I used to give blowjobs with gusto, but nowadays, I’m not a fan. In fact, most of the time, I just say no when guys ask me for one. As bad as it sounds, I’m pretty much over giving blowjobs to men.
Though it may shock many women to hear me say that, it’s the damn truth. I’m over it, and I’m not going to tolerate it anymore. I hate blowjobs.
Though I’d definitely give blowjobs to a guy who actually would meet my needs sexually and romantically, the fact is that, until I meet a guy worth a damn, I have a zero blowjob policy. Here’s why this might be a good route for you, too.
1. It’s a lot of work.
Dude, it’s called a blowjob because it’s a job. As in, it’s work. After about five good minutes of doing it,
