All relationships require compromise. We negotiate, we give in on certain things, and we hold fast to others that we feel
I am intelligent, well-spoken, passionate and not at all bordering on the ledge of insanity. Instead of wondering why I was unable to capture a man that wanted me badly enough to secure my reputation , please wonder why on earth such a man doesn't exist for me -- or you.
We can wake ourselves up by increasing our oxygen level by breathing deeply. Or conversely, we can put ourselves to sleep with a kind of meditation of shallow breathing, and repeating silently the words to the rhythmic "in" and "out" like a mantra.
Screw love. Just settle.
As much as it seems like we should all be able to assess our actions, an astonishing number of people go through life and relationships without any idea how their own behavior can impact their decisions, relationships and ultimately, their happiness.
Alone or together, these items create havoc in our ability to let go, move on or do what we want!
I am using this invocation as a modern-day prayer a call to the Galaxy, to not settle for anything less than amazing.
Being open to people you would not normally consider your "type" can be a liberating experience. Commit to getting to know someone based more on your must-haves and deal breakers than on a list of expectations that may not be based on what really matters.
Once again: Your deal breakers must actually break your deal. Here's the thing. Everyone does have issues. But we get to
Love, or what I thought was love at the time, foolishly blinded me. Don't get me wrong; I knew I deserved better, but I didn't know if I'd ever find it.

Constantly defending and justifying your dreams and desires is not only exhausting, but also counterproductive and unhealthy. Take the time to actively seek out like-minded people who will acknowledge, affirm and celebrate your audacious goals.
When you are over 50, especially well over 50, time is perhaps your most precious asset. No one wants to squander it. It makes us older folks nervous to think about spending six months, a year, five years, in a relationship only to have it not work. What the hell do we do then?
In all areas of life women often settle for less. I think of this as a low-fat version of love, including self-love, by substituting what we really want for what we think we can get and then trying to pretend we're more satisfied than we are.
Nobody should ever have to settle for less than they deserve just for the sake of being with someone. The problem these days is, sometimes mistreatment or "good enough I guess" is seen as normal and acceptable. It's time to raise your standards.
The researchers then wanted to know how this fear affects behavior in romantic relationships. Again using online surveys
If you were to take a mental field trip and visit your future self, the one who is no longer struggling with the situation that is currently causing you the most stress, what advice would he or she give you?
We want a man who has the class, taste and style of a gay man, the masculinity and romantic idiocy of a Greek man who would fight for Troy and the charm, wit and panache of a prince.
