Guilty pleasures — you have them. I have them. We all do. Then why is it so shocking when a man has them? I really don’t know. But I do know that I’m always floored whenever a new guy reveals one of his guilty little pleasures to me. Of course it makes sense, though. Peanut butter on a spoon knows no gender! And neither does rotten TV, dirty talk in the bedroom or porn. Well, actually, I guess porn does know some gender, but still. You get what I’m saying, right? Guys have guilty pleasures too, and if you want your relationship to work, you need to accept his little indulgences as part of him. Here’s how.
February breaks down to the Number 2, and 2 is the Vibration that asks us to really look at what’s going on at an emotional level. Don’t be surprised if you have been a little more sensitive than usual, and with that in mind, if you feel more defensive.

Brazilian. Landing strip. Lightening bolt. You have a lot of options when it comes to grooming down there. Even when you’ve been lady grooming for years, the options can get overwhelming, and it seems like they’re always adding new options.

Well, I turned once again to comedian, dating coach and an all-around great source of male perspective, Ethan Fixell. Here are the main takeaways.
Texting is an integral part of any relationship’s communication these days. Anyone who says differently is probably your grandma. Or actually, your great grandma. Avoiding texting is like avoiding kissing to some. But texting can also have a nasty side. That’s right. Texting can become toxic. Here’s how to tell when your texting relationship has been contaminated.
You will have a hell of a time trying to get anyone to commit to anything while Mars and Mercury are both under the influence of Neptune this week. It’s a slippery slope that will only get slipperier. Resolute Mars becomes vague and meandering while Mercury — always a planet to fixate on details and specifics — will be positively amnesiac. This is not the time to force people into agreements that they don’t want to make because even if you do succeed in getting them to say yes in the moment, they will turn out to be no-shows when you need them most. Nor should you try to keep anyone in your life who doesn’t want to be there. All of the guilt-tripping in the world won’t succeed in making someone feel something that s/he doesn’t. You would be much better off setting this person free. It’s the loving thing to do. Read more
I actually don’t have many resolutions this year. 2012 was a bang-up year for me. It included starting this site! So of course it was fantastic. The one little thing I’d love to change for this coming year is to be a bit more adventurous and creative when it comes to dating.
