Honesty and Vulnerability the Key to Intimacy

One of the main factors of having and keeping a good relationship is being able to trust, and have good communication. In order for others to trust us, we have to be able to become vulnerable, and show our vulnerability. Honesty and vulnerability go hand in hand. You cannot be totally, and genuinely truthful with another, without opening up fully to them.[...]

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

We are conceived through a connection, of the deepest kind, between a man and a woman, and from the moment that we are conceived, we are connected to our Mother in her womb. When that physical connection we began with is separated at birth, we spend our lives desiring to be connected again. How we go about, and how well we succeed, at re-creating that connection…becomes the story of our lives.[...]

"Puppet On A String" Who Is Controlling Your Strings?

I was raised in a family of givers, and caretakers, and the old fashion way, where the women wait on the men, and take care of the home, but in the world of relationships, that tenancy and upbringing, if taken too far, can get me into a whole lot of trouble with men, and ultimately be the downfall of any relationship. There is a fine line between caring for someone and allowing yourself to be a “puppet on a string”. When you spend all of your time trying to please another person, at your own expense; they will see you as weak, possessive and clingy.[...]

Have You Seen My Rose Colored Glasses?"

I was reading an article by Zara Stevens, and it hit on something that has been on my mind a lot these past few years. "You no longer make me happy anymore." I heard this statement a lot at the end of my last relationship; that had started out with the most profound happiness that I could ever imagine. Both of us were filled with dreams that we were working to create together, along with supporting each other's individual dreams. But then there came that "crack", as Zara put it. I think that so many times part of the problem lies in the fact; that we meet someone, and they begin to bring so very much happiness into our lives, that each of you creates this perfect picture in your mind, about what a wonderful,[...]

TGIF - The Five Best Love and Relationships Articles From Around the Web - #1

I decided to attempt a new Friday ritual, and pick my favorite five articles on love and relationships I read around the Web for that week. So here goes:

Over at Em and Lo’s – “The Top 5 Breakup Cliches" - where they tell us to take these clichés and play the fortune cookie game with them, you know the one I’m talking about, where you read your fortune and add “in bed” on the end, only in this case add, “with you” instead.

Also at Em and Lo’s – the spin off to the above articles is, “The Top 6 Breakup Lies” - and their humorous opinions of each one. Well worth the chuckle.

From Men Are All Liars – “The Death of the Pickup Artist" -an excellent article by Sam.

The Black Critic - “The Tale of Two Fathers” - make sure you read the question Father #1 told his son to ask himself anytime he was about to have sex. A question all of us should ask ourselves before having sex with someone.

And last but not least Single Mom Seeking – “I’ve Entered My Dad In a Photo Contest” - have you?

Enjoy the exploration.

I got interested with the death of the pickup artist. True enough, more girls are being aware with the techniques of the pickup artist. But on my own opinion, most guys totally depend on the "script." What they need to understand is that they should develop the skills of a pickup artist - good conversationalist and the likes. If you're a true pickup artist, you'll be able to handle situations when a girl knew that you are trying to do the PUA stunt.

Just my thoughts.
Thanks for the link by the way.
