How to Cope with a Drunk Partner (and Save the Relationship)

How to Cope with a Drunk Partner (and Save the Relationship)Most of us will come across people who are drinking too much in social situations. And to be fair, who hasn’t — from time to time — had one (or three) too many drinks at their own birthday party?

The summer season is nearly upon us. It’s time for holiday celebrations and barbecues at which keeping the wine and beer flowing is part of being hospitable.

We view celebrations with growing dread as they provide our problem drinker with what they consider to be a legitimate excuse for excess.

The following is a quick guide to managing drunken behavior wisely and minimizing its destructive impact...

How to Find Lasting Love

loveDating tips to help you find love #1: Keep things in perspective

Don’t make your search for a relationship the center of your life. Concentrate on activities you enjoy, your career, health, and relationships with family and friends. When you focus on keeping yourself happy, it will keep your life balanced and make you a more interesting person when you do meet someone special.
Remember that first impressions aren’t always reliable. Especially when it comes to Internet dating, people don’t always accurately portray themselves. Regardless of where or how you meet someone, though, it always takes time to really get to know that person. You have to experience being with someone in a variety of situations, some good and some not so good, before you really know him or her...

5 New Year’s resolutions every single girl should makeHear that? It’s the clock ticking down on 2013. It’s time to say sayonara to last year and hello to 2014. I know it’s cliché, but I love to start a new year off with resolutions. It’s just the perfect time to reflect, set some goals and look forward to making your future even better than your past. I tend to keep my most personal resolutions to myself. I weirdly treat them like birthday wishes and don’t share them because then they might not come true. So, don’t ask me to share mine! But, if you’re a single girl, I have some resolutions that should be on your list for 2014.

Perhaps you didn’t have someone to kiss when the clock struck twelve, or you’re hoping to have a Valentine this year — a new year means a new beginning.

3 Tips For Dating A Divorced GuyIn some ways, dating a divorced guy is no different than dating a guy who has never been married. However, there may be some crucial differences. Here are three tips to keep in mind when dating a recently divorced man.

1. Marriage.

First, a divorced man may be more cautious or even opposed to the idea of getting married again. This may be especially true if he went through an ugly divorce, he was betrayed by his wife, or if the divorce cost him a lot of money.

Although women are often portrayed as the ones likely to carry emotional baggage from previous relationships, men do too. If this is the case with the guy you are interested in, the important thing is to not push him. If the relationship develops in a positive direction he may very well change his attitude towards marriage...

Nope.
