Why men pull away after sex (and what you can do about it!)
I’m friends with this guy and we really get along. Last week we somehow ended up in bed together. It felt comfortable and natural. What’s bothering me now is that he’s been acting differently towards me ever since. He used to text me all the time and now he never texts me unless I text him first. He seems like he isn’t interested in maintaining our relationship anymore and I’m not sure why. We had fun. Why is he acting so different?
Stumped at being dumped? The real reason you're single.
My ex-girlfriend said that she did not love me nor was she attracted to me. But we were together for six months! She made the first move on our first date, she would always initiate PDA's: kissing, touching, even arousing me in cabs, restaurants, the park... She expressed interest in sex but we never went through with it. But tell me, how is it that you can get so close to someone physically and claim to have neither attraction nor feelings? I am still nursing my broken hea...

The most common mistakes women make when trying to get a guy to commit
My boyfriend and I have been together for two years. He tells me he loves me like he’s never loved any girl, but he just can’t commit and he doesn’t know why. It’s so confusing…for both of us!
I’m very clingy, a bit insecure too, and sometimes I check his phone or try to mother him, but he says that’s not the problem. That the problem is him, and he doesn’t know when he’ll get over it. I tried ultimatums but they don&r...
Butterbur Helps Migraine Headaches and Seasonal Allergies
There are so many over-the-counter drugs that are designed to help allergies, like decongestants and antihistamines. However, these remedies often come with a long list of unpleasant side effects.
Antihistamines are known for causing extreme drowsiness, which is so helpful if you plan on sleeping through the allergy season. Decongestants tend to have a stimulating effect, which is even more helpful if you would rather feel nervous and irritable instead of your allergies.
The truth behind the most dangerous relationship myth out there.
The most dangerous relationship myth out there
“The secret to a successful relationship is to spend as much time together as possible. Don’t take time or space apart. When it gets challenging, don’t run away. If there’s anger, let it rip. If there’s hurt, don’t hold back. Honesty is the key. Togetherness is the solution to every problem.”
What’s your reaction when I say those words?
It doesn’t sound bad, right? It sound...
How to support your partner when they have a bad day (It's not what you think!)
When something upsets my boyfriend or when anything upsets me, we feel responsible for each other. For example, if he gets upset about some incident, I feel guilty like it is somehow my fault when in fact I had nothing to do with it! It’s the same with him, if he sees me upset, he feels down. What do we do in this case? Is this normal?
I think it is totally normal! It’s natural for human beings, no matter what their gender, to suf...

What 'Leave me alone' ACTUALLY means in a relationship.
“Leave me alone!” doesn’t mean
what you think it means.
When it comes to a man, the words “Leave me alone,” mean one thing only. Leave him the heck alone or face the fire-breathing dragon.
No dance steps.
It means exactly what it says.
But when it comes to a woman, this phrase is slightly more nuanced and can mean more than one thing.
(It’s not fair but it’s true.)

Why Valentine's Day is just like going to the Dentist.
Why is Valentine’s Day like going to the Dentist? Why would I imply such a detestable thing when I’m a lover of love and I teach relationships for a living?
I have NOTHING against Valentine’s Day. I LOVE Valentine's Day! But maybe not for the reasons you think. I don’t love Valentine’s Day because it’s a day where we practice romance and buy things for each other and say, “I love you.”
