How To Have A Complaint-free Relationship
For many men and women, the thought of never having to hear another complaint sounds like heaven. In a complaint-free relationship, love is sure to grow. But complaints are a part of life. To not complain is to hide a part of our authentic self. Sharing complaints is actually not the real problem; it is how you are sharing your complaints about your partner to your partner! A complaint-free relationship does not mean you can never complain; it means you don’t complain about your partner to...
Why men cock block your feelings instead of listening.
I need your help. It seems like every time I try to bring something up about our relationship and express my honest feelings, it turns into a fight. Specifically, I open up, he gets irritated and says “drop it.” I’m not one to be bulldozed over so I keep talking. I should be allowed to express to myself to my own boyfriend. He just keeps saying, “drop it” and eventually leaves the room and slams the door.
I’m trying to make this relationsh...
How To Talk To A Man So He Will Listen
When I am speaking to an audience, I like to ask them, "How many of you have been divorced?" Most times, more than half of the crowd raises their hands.
Then I say, "Put your hands down if your parents were also divorced." Usually only a few people drop their hands, leaving a large group of people who have been divorced but their parents are still married.
I finally say, "Keep your hands up if you think you have better communication skills than your parents.&qu...
Want a successful relationship? When your partner let's you down, do this...
It’s easy to find fault. It’s always going to be easy to find fault in our partners. We’re human. We make mistakes. And because we open our hearts to and find ourselves leaning on our partner’s for support, it can be VERY obvious when they screw something up, make a mistake, or let us down.
But what separates a dissatisfying relationship from a fulfilling one is looking past the fault and finding the loving intention. Squinting through your partner’s mistake...
'When I'm upset, he just makes it worse!' How couples can communicate better and without all the drama.
I don't feel comfortable talking to my boyfriend when I feel sad, because what's the point? He doesn't give me his full attention. And he gets really disturbed that I get angrier the longer he “listens.” It just seems like he doesn't know what to do or what to say. He's stuck in fix it mode.
I don't want our relationship to end, but it bothers him when I'm upset and can't talk about it. I’ve given up and don’t talk an...
The surprising truth about dating a selfish man (or a series of selfish men)
Hi Lauren! Thank you so much for all that you do. I’ve learned so much. My question is, what do you do if you’re dating a narcissist? Or in my case, a series of narcissists? It seems like every relationship I start, it’s all about what HE wants to do, or what HE wants to talk about, which is usually himself. I know I deserve more than that. What’s your advice when you’re dating a selfish man?
Great question. In this blog I’m go...
How Minerals Determine Your Quality Of Life
What Are Minerals?

Tongkat Ali Helps Boost Testosterone Naturally
The candles are lit and some romantic music is playing, but instead of fireworks in the bedroom, you find frustration. And it’s not because of the music. When couples experience a lack of libido or sexual dysfunction in the bedroom, it can create a tremendous amount of stress in an otherwise healthy relationship.
Some men between the ages of 40 and 55 can begin to have trouble getting an erection when the moment is otherwise perfect. This is a sign of declining testosterone levels....

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 most dangerous relationship myth out there

What’s your reaction when I say those words?

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...
How to say 'I love you' first (without freaking out your partner)
So I told my boyfriend I loved him for the first time and he got really weird after that. Why does he think that saying I love you means "Lets get married" and a major commitment? Not simply, I love you, which is how I meant it.

Collagen Holds Your Body Together
Collagen is the glue that holds your body together
