Hmmmmmm, can this be true? Are the fellas really valuing cuddling and affection more than sex and vise versa.... women are valuing sex more than cuddling? Huffington Post reports.... Researchers from the Kinsey Institute in Bloomington, Ind. surveyed couples in long-term relationships from five different countries, and found some surprising results, reports TIME.
Men who reported frequently kissing or cuddling with their partners were on average three times as happy with their relationships as men who reported limited interaction. Perhaps more surprising, the study found it was sexual satisfaction that was more important to women in long-term relationships. And it also found that for women, sex got better over time -- they reported significantly more sexual satisfaction after being with their partner for 15 years.
1. You can’t stand to be alone
We've all had those dreadful lonely nights when you feel like being with anyone is better than being alone :( My philosphy is.... i'd rather be alone than be with someone who doesn't make me happy, life is too short, no more drama (in my Mary J Blige voice).
2. Your friends want you paired off together
Sometimes friends mean well (bless their little hearts) they wanna see you happy so they may push you to be with a person THEY want you to be with, but if that's not something you want, don't date a person just for the sake of making you friends happy, date the person who makes YOU happy
A lot of people believe in "Soulmates"... that one special person who completes you like Tom Cruise in the "Jerry Mcguire" movie... Is it possible to increase your chances of meeting that special person? A interesting article i came across called How To Find Your Soulmate seems to think so... The article list 5 steps to increase your chances of finding your soulmate. Check out the list and let me know what you think.
STEP 1: Make yourself a better person
Instead of waiting for your soulmate to appear, make yourself apparent to him or her. Become the spectacular human being you want to be. Expressing your individuality is the closest you can come to advertising your soulmate potential. Not only will you stand out, but you'll also be doing things that are more likely to bring you closer to your soulmate, who probably has similar interests and goals.
Beyonce's song "Single Ladies" has everyone thinking it's all about putting a ring on it. Yes, getting a engagement ring is great, but after being engaged for several years... what does it really mean? You want your man to not just "Put a ring on it"... you want him to actually walk down the aisle.
Take a LONG and HARD look at this list and see if you see yourself.. if so, you might wanna re-evaluate your relationship.
1. You Have Been Reduced to Begging
For the woman who has been doing some serious hinting about getting married, it is often very hard to realize that conversations about marriage have been replaced with begging and pleading. If you have been reduced to begging, it is time to move on. Not only does he not plan on marrying you, but the type of guy who strings a woman along like this is likely to move on to more complex stalling tactics that can drag on for years without ever tying the knot.

Now that the internet is so popular... Online cheating is at a all time high. I decided to make a list of things that i personally find suspect... Check out the 5 warning signs below to see if your spouse fits the description.
1. Your spouse logs off, hides or changes the computer screen as soon as you come any where near them
This is a HUGE red flag, you don't even need me to tell you that this one is suspect, however... for those of you who don't know.... If your spouse is on the computer then SUDDENLY logs off soon as you walk in the room or they switch the screen to a different screen other than the screen they was on before you came in the room, It's time to start asking some questions.
1. You just can’t stand the sight of him/her
The sound of his car pulling up on the driveway makes your heart drop. You feel heavy in your thought, and you secretly hope that he/she doesn’t open the door and comes in.
2. Disrespectful and Distrust
If you look at the person with disgust, and it is just irritating you when he/she talks.
I came across this list of reason why men cheat on (AskMen) and found it interesting... From a woman's prospective i can definitely say the list has truth to it and these reason would all cause the average man to cheat, But i would like to hear from you fella's, let me know if this list is accurate or not.
1) The opportunity was there
It's an uncontested fact that most men can't say "no" to sex. Although guys aren't constantly bombarded with sexual offers, sometimes an irresistible prospect presents itself. Maybe it's a frisky ex-girlfriend, maybe it's a horny hottie on the dance floor. A guy may see it as once-in-a-lifetime occasion that might never be available again.
2) Your girlfriend/wife is a nag
Most men have experienced at least one woman who thrives on making him feel like crap. Constant nagging, fighting and squabbling in the right ratios is the best recipe for a headache. Cheating with another woman is a common escape from this domestic hell, and works better than aspirin.
I came across these lies by Anslem Samuel & Murphy who are (both men) from different sites. I HATE to admit it (sorry ladies) but the guys are pretty much on point... check it out and let me know what you think.
1. "I'm looking for a good man."
Then why do you keep dating losers? Women say they want a certain type of man but oftentimes end up dealing with guys that are the complete opposite, while the supposed "good" guys are left by the wayside. Clearly, women don't know what they want or what's good for them. Where do you think the phrase, "nice guys finish last" came from?
2. "I don't know why I'm single."
Have you ever been in a relationship with a man you knew wasn't the one but STILL you stayed knowing he was no good for you? I think almost all of us have been guilty of this atleast once. I myself have been guilty of it in the past but eventually i learned my lesson and so can you.
Check out this list i came across by Liz Campanille of the 5 signs he's not the one... i feel the list is very accurate. I broke up with someone over #2 ... and #1 is a deal breaker for me, trust is a MUST, without it, you will NEVER have a good relationship.
1. You can’t trust him.
Trust is the cornerstone of any relationship, and without it, there is no relationship to be had. The concept of trust permeates every facet of any partnership with two people, most significantly in romantic ones.
Trust can cover many types of behavior, including doing what he says he’s going to do, keeping promises, showing up, and following through. These are all important actions in the dating dynamic. In a galaxy far away, I dated a guy who was always shifty and vague when we made plans. This made me not trust him, and as it later turned out, he was validating my fears with his infidelity. In a word… next!
2. He brings out the worst in you.
Any man who seems to thrive on conflict or discord within your relationship is bad news. If he’s anything less than compassionate and supportive, chances are he’s not into the relationship for anything other than drama. The point of a romantic relationship is to love, support and nurture each other. (Contrary to what reality shows might tell you, they’re not about drama, hurt feelings, conspiracy plots, or psychologist bills.)
