His Family Doesn’t Like Me

You’re crazy about your guy and he’s crazy about you. You’re both ready to take the big step of meeting his parents. He wants you to meet them because he wants them to know how special and important you are to him. You might be excited to meet the people who raised the wonderful man you care about so much.

What To Do If His Parents Don't Like YouThen the unexpected happens. They really don’t seem to like you at all. They may be cold and formal with you or even plain rude to you but they are clearly telling you that they don’t think you’re right for their son. Sometimes it’s just one parent who doesn’t seem to like you, other times the entire family, including siblings.

What do you do in a situation like that? How do you cope with the feelings that come with that kind of rejection and where do you go from there?

How Important Is Your Relationship?

Is it worth the hassle and time it will take for the family to get used to you? What if they never accept you? Are you willing to live with that? If you really do love each other, that should be enough—family will follow suit or not. That’s their problem, not yours. If the family not liking you is causing you to have second thoughts, take some time to think whether his family disliking you is the only reservation you’re having about your relationship. Are there other reasons you think this won’t work out?

Why Some Women Prefer Married Men

Why would any woman in her right mind decide to go for a married man instead of looking for a single guy of her own to keep her warm at night?

Why Some Women Prefer Married MenWell, it seems there are sound reasons married men appear to have more allure than their single counterparts.

Though it still doesn’t make married men a good idea, here is why Mr. Married might seem like a great bedfellow.

1

He’s Pre-screened

It’s human nature for a man in demand to be more attractive than one who no woman apparently wants. At least one woman has already worked out that this guy is worth marrying, so he must be okay as a partner in many respects. There’s one exception to that, of course, and that’s as far as fidelity is concerned. If he’s with you, he’s not much good at being faithful, and he’s likely cheat again.

2

He’s Stable

Married men are usually emotionally and financially stable if they are in a settled relationship. Both those qualities are attractive to women looking at potential partners.

3

He Treats You Well

Married men usually treat their mistresses better than their wives—and, it has to be said, even better than they used to treat their wives before they were married. You will be lavished with gifts, affection and exciting sex. There’s a lot to like about that. Read more »

8 Reasons Why You May Be Afraid Of Commitment

That’s right – I mean you not him! Men tend to be the ones who back out of a relationship due to a fear of getting tied down, but it’s not always the case. If you are having trouble making a relationship last, or regularly make excuses to end things, you need to ask yourself if you might be the one with the fear of commitment.

Are You the One Afraid of Commitment?Here are some reasons why you may be afraid.

1

You’ve Been Hurt Before

Maybe you thought you had the one in the past, the man you wanted to be your forever, but then it was over for one reason or the other. You’ve been hurt so badly, you find it hard to commit to another relationship. Maybe you still compare everyone you date to that first love and find it hard to find anyone who measures up to him. You need to give yourself time to heal properly before attempting another serious relationship. Rediscover yourself, find ways to be happy on your own, then, when you’re ready, go back into the dating world with no pressure.

Love Daily

If you want love to survive, it needs daily nourishing. You can’t neglect your relationship and expect it to flourish. Just like a plant that won’t live for very long without water, love will die if you don’t pay attention to it.

Love is not something you have but something you do!

And if you get into the habit of doing something for the one you love day in day out, it can only help your relationship blossom.

That can be anything from a long and passionate kiss, to remembering to get something from the store he wanted, from saying “I love you” to giving a genuine compliment. The more loving things you do the better. There’s no need to restrict yourself to one!

12 Ways to Beat Boredom in Your Relationship

Boredom is a dangerous state for any relationship. You think you’re okay, and in most cases you are, and everything works out fine. But sometimes (too often) if the excitement is missing for any length of time, it creates a gap that can be filled all too easily by an affair.

12 Ways to Beat Boredom in Your RelationshipWhile there are times of excitement followed by times of quiet in almost every relationship, never let yours get into a rut that feels like it will last forever.

Here are some tips to keep your relationship buzzing, and if you’re already bored the sooner you start the better!

1

Do Something Spontaneous

After you’ve been together a while, he thinks he knows everything about you, and you think you know everything about him, but you can never know everything about another person. Surprise him with something he wasn’t expecting you to do to break the monotony. This might be tickets to watch his favorite team or a trip to Paris, depending on your budget. It might be something new in bed or something new for dinner. It doesn’t have to be a surprise that’s completely out of character, just something you feel like doing that you don’t normally do and that will please him. Wear a new color he’s never seen you in, buy some new sexy undies or suggest a walk after dinner when you’d normally just collapse on the sofa – anything.

Travel

Sometimes, going to a new place can bring life back into a relationship. Go on vacation together or just take a weekend off at a local motel or campground or visit a nearby city. Some couples will take at least one night every month away in order to keep things spicy. Don’t keep going back to the same place—that’s just creating a new habit. Instead, make the effort to regularly go somewhere new and interesting you’d both like. Read more »
