Article 8 In a Series of Articles on Winning Back a Ex Lover

Communication The first step to rebuilding a relationship is to communicate and tell each other what you have been holding back. You have to share everything with each other both the bad and the good, and this is not something you do just once. Communication is what will keep your love alive and investing in your relationship will make it thrive. Even ten minutes per day of quality time with your partner where you just talk about how you both feel can do wonders to rebuild the passion and to keep it alive. You will both have to break through your fears and limiting beliefs so that you can move forward. Stop relying on anger as a means to satisfy deep emotional needs and replace it with love. If you feel you can’t do this then just close your eyes and imagine your life without that person. What is more …

Article 8 and Conclusion Top 10 Places To Meet Someone New

The Internet “I turn on my computer. I wait patiently as it connects. I go online. My breath catches in my chest until I hear 3 little words, “You’ve got mail.” I hear nothing, not a sound on the streets of New York. Just the beat of my own heart. I have mail…from you.” – From the movie “You’ve Got Mail.” No, I’m not talking about the proliferation of internet dating sites. (though if you are a woman, the odds aren’t bad on those. There’s 7 men for every 1 woman registered on most dating sites.) Instead, I’m talking about the new kinds of social media opportunities that present themselves these days. For instance, when you get on Facebook or MySpace, you have an opportunity to find other people within your geographic area who share your interests. When you get actively involved in the community, you’ll start making connections with …

Volunteering Never before has man had such a great capacity to control his own environment, to end hunger, poverty and disease, to banish illiteracy and human misery.

President Barrack Obama has called on the nation to serve much as John F. Kennedy did two generations ago. There are volunteer opportunities for every interest.

Article 7 Concludes The Series of Articles on Resurrecting The Romance

This articles picks up where article 6 left off yesterday. Keep in mind that when you are in love, it is easy to gloss over each other’s imperfections. As these come to light as you are living daily life, it is easy to turn into a nag or a jerk. Your love is never as perfect as the night when you proposed or accepted the ring. That’s a fact of life. But, that doesn’t mean that you have license to be a nag or a jerk. It’s impossible to feel romantic with someone who you perceive to be hostile to you. Don’t put your partner in the position of not being able to love you properly because you have created a hostile environment. When you do some serious introspection and realize that you have been a nag or a jerk, apologize for your behavior and work on correcting it. Realize …

Article 7 Concludes The Series of Articles on Compatiblity

Family Charlene, age 38, had two children from a previous marriage. They were 16 and 18 and would soon be in college. When she met Pete, she felt that she had raised her family and was now looking forward to a home without kids. After a few dates, Pete told Charlene that he had never had kids and felt that he had missed out on a big part of life as a result. He pointed out that she still had a few child bearing years left and inquired about whether she was willing to start over again. This was a big issue for Charlene. She wasn’t sure she was ready for the commitment to diapers, PTA meetings, little league games, and teen age antics all over again. She knew that this was a big issue for Pete too. Because her own kids had given her life shape and meaning, she …

Relationship – Know Your Partners Values Beforehand

We acquire our values from different sources. In the beginning our values are given to us by our parents. Speak truth, help others, do this and do not do that and things like that. After sometime, we get more values in our education. We read about values of great people and try to live by some of them. Our religion gives us many values. How to live, what is right, what is wrong and what is allowed, what is not allowed are some values that we get from the religion? Today if you observe the difference between pro and anti abortion lobbies, you will find a values conflict. In your relationship, have you found out values of your partner? Have you spelled out your values? Values are dear to us. For some of us, values are very dear. It is found that some people even give away their life to …

Relationship – In Love With A Married Person

I have seen this topic in many forums being discussed heatedly. The scenario is thus. Somebody is in love with a married man/woman. The married person is also in love with our man/woman. But does not want to give away the marriage. What should be done? Those who fall in love with a married person get trapped. That is the trap of dishonesty. Such relationships will never be happy. The married person is having dual commitments and is hiding his love from his/her spouse. What use is that marriage? The thought that I am cheating my spouse is enough to kill all the joy. Dishonesty never gives joy. Even if the married person wants to have dual commitments, he/she should make it very clear to the spouse. There should be no hide and seek. Once you tell your spouse, your spouse has to decide about whether the relationship should continue …

Relationship – Do Not Blame Me For The Mess?

I have spoken about various games we play in relationships. The games that are mostly negative drain the relationship of its charm and effectively kill all the love and care that partners can have for each other. Here is one more such game that is played in relationships. It is called – please I am not at fault. Do not blame me. Or tell me what I shall do, and I will do that. Unsaid part- you know very well that I will never do what you advise, but blame you after everything fails. Partners who have been lucky to get a partner who tolerates a lot generally play this game. In this relationship The game playing partner knows that all will be tolerated and the poor partner will try his/her best to set things right. Why should I bother at all? These are lazy partners. These are dishonest partners. …

Relationship: Commitment Errors

COMMITMENT: A ten letter word consisting of 3 vowels and 7 consonants; a word that symbolises union, loyalty, monogamy, togetherness, love, mutual respect and perhaps all those priceless sentiments which we hold in such high esteem. It’s a word almost always associated with marriage; a word that means so much in theory. Yet in practice is so more often than not reduced to a mere string of alphabetical letters. Marriages today are crumbling for lack of commitment. So why get married in the first place if you have no intention of being loyal? Most ‘contemporary’ women, it seems, have tuned into ‘Desperate Housewives’. The infamous line of “It meant nothing. It was just sex’ being the buzz. Yes, times are hard, there is too much temptation, we are only human, and we all make mistakes. But there are some who actually think it’s OK to sleep around because it really …

Relationship – Are You Sacrificing More

No relationship is equal give and take. In every relationship, both the partners make adjustments to make the relationship a success. Both give up many choices in life and try to contribute for the continuation of the relationship. Sacrifices are always called for in a healthy relationship. The relationship thrives on them. When we sacrifice we feel good because we feel worthy. Having given up something always makes us feel good. It can also make us feel bad, if it goes on from one side and the other partner not even acknowledges that. The resentment sets in to the detriment of the relationship. Why Sacrifice- two people cannot relate and live together peacefully, if they set their own conditions of living. They have to draw a common way and sacrifice their own hobbies, interests, and many other interests. Many adjustments have to be made to make a relationship succeed. Are …

Relationship

A lot of people may not notice, but whatever one does and whichever part of the world one comes from, relationship is universal. From the very first circle of people a person comes in contact with, the family, he or she already starts to build a relationship with family members. And what about the friendship that one nurtures and treasures while growing up, or the connection built with coworkers, or the bond one chooses to share with an intimate lifetime companion, these are all relationships that make possible for a human being to deepen the existence. Throughout ones lifetime, the ties made with so many different people results to diverse types of relationship as well, from the good casual friendly contacts, to the usual acquaintance connection, to the more formal professional relations, to spiritual dealings, to the most simple interactions made with everyday activity, and to the most powerful and …

Relationship Tips

People deal with different relationships everyday, from home to partner relationships, to family and friends’ relationships, to professional or coworker relationships and to simple dealings and connections with people that surround one’s daily life. Relationships, whether good or bad, affects the person in one way or another, more particularly so affects the emotional status and functionality of a person. Unfortunately, bad relationships tend to have a chain of effect on how the person deals with his everyday role. Take for instance, a married person having an argument with the spouse before going to work; the upset emotional status of the person creates a chain of reaction towards the different relationships that person encounters during the day, such as not being able to focus on work and bosses being troubled as well, or not interested with interacting with coworkers, or more so, easily irritated with things around him or her, creating …

Relationship Stories

Like all books, relationship stories don’t always have happy endings. Even if fairy tales have their happily-ever-after finale, they had to go through hell to achieve that. Real relationship stories have their own villains. Break ups, separation and divorce hound every commitment, making life miserable for those with the weakest of hearts. But this does not mean that all relationships are doomed. In fact, if couples would solve all issues together, happy endings are very much achievable. Most songs are actually relationship stories. That is why people who are in a commitment or are trying to get out of one, feel that they can relate to all the songs on the radio. But no matter how extraordinary you think your relationship is, it is just one of the many relationship stories that people talk about. There are no real experts on love. Even if you earned dozens of recognitions in …

Relationship Psychology

A happy relationship doesn’t happen all by itself. Even Cinderella needed the help of the fairy godmother. Unfortunately, we are not Cinderella, and fairies are all but driven to extinction. The absence of magic potions and wands does not mean that all relationships are hopeless. Both parties should be as involved in the relationship as the other. Often, people who are in love can’t or refuse to see the very obvious. Relationship psychology does not make fortune tellers out of you, though it makes you see where you’re relationship is heading by looking at each of your personalities. How healthy a relationship is can also be determined by relationship psychology by looking at the couple’s first encounter, their courtship, and their current situation. All these are believed to be good indicators of what to expect of the commitment. There are tips to help couples find out about their relationship psychology. …

Relationship Issues

Relationships play an important part in people’s lives, as they provide a person with love, support, and understanding. On the other hand, relationships can also be a source of indecision and sorrow. It is essential that a person maintains a healthy relationship to enjoy its benefits, but sometimes this too is hard to do because of relationship issues that surface as the relationship gets deeper. Some of the most common relationship issues include decision making, avoiding confrontation, arriving recurrently late, finding problems with everyone, swamped with ones own perspective, separation anxiety, consumed with oneself, communicating ineffectively, and avoiding change. Decision making is one of the most common relationship issues, as one can find themselves paralyzed with important decision making because they have to consider their relationship’s say on the matter, and oftentimes they can’t come to a decision. Avoiding confrontation is another common issue, when someone in the relationship tends …
