Signs Your Relationship is About to Fall Apart
Yes, you know them as well as I do. Sometimes the signs are difficult to accept until someone else identifies them and presents them to you. In my years of counselling about relationships, most of the people coming to me for advice wanted validation of the tough decisions they already knew they had to make. Here are some of the main signs that the relationship you once relished is, sadly, turning sour.
Single? Work it to Your Advantage
There are all kinds of research these days, some proving that married people are happier and more content; and on the other hand, others insisting that single people live longer and have more fulfilling lives. Meanwhile, in our real world, these results do not address the seemingly opposing views displayed in the reports of rising divorce rates, or the constant drive for unmarried people to find that ‘special someone’.
Why He's No Good For You
You know the kind of guy, right. You kind of like him, but you’re unsure whether he sees you as just a friend or is secretly hoping to get love-busy with you. You’re sort of at the point in life where you’ll settle for less than you would have ten years ago. But is he your compromise-prize guy, are his love quotes setting you up for a fall, or do those neon warning signs buzzing at the back of your brain know something you’re not letting yourself see.

The Do's and Don't When Looking For Your Serious Relationship
Sometimes the older we grow, the harder it gets to meet the right person. So much time is spent these days on online dating that people have almost forgotten how to be honest about themselves when they come face to face on a date with an actual person. Here are some tips to get you back in the game

You may even be thinking of giving up trying because it seems that the right man you’re looking for has not yet been made. Sometimes it seems like every man you meet is a potential date and future partner, but then something, or everything goes wrong and you find with each disappointment, that your heart becomes increasingly more desperate to find that someone. Not anymore!

Why You Should Say No To That Marriage Proposal
If maintaining a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship seems like hard work, living with him as a husband when he no longer feels like he has to impress you will be almost impossible. No one has to get hitched, but if marriage is on your agenda and you are caught in a relationship with a man whose proposal you can’t trust, it might be time to consider the less painful of two possibilities, marry him and hope for the best, or move on to look for the man who is still out there waiting for you to find him.
Men And Christmas Don't Mix
They can’t even get the wrapping right.
My husband once told me that he thought it was pointless wrapping something up for the sole purpose of opening it up again. This makes perfect sense to me. If this is typical of what other men think, then it’s little wonder men get sick of wrapping presents year after year. This dislike is probably the reason behind them not being able to do it quite right.
At this time of year everyone's preparing to celebrate Valentine's Day. Everywhere you look, your senses are assaulted by stuffed toys and heart-shaped chocolate. If you've just endured a break-up this is the last thing you want to see. This is why I've prepared something special just for you. No cheesy love quotes in sight.
The Internet is drowning in news about the infidelity of football players, Ashley Cole and John Terry, and golf star, Tiger Woods. Almost everyone you talk to has got an opinion of why these men put their happy families in jeopardy and went out carelessly looking for quick flings. Of course, what they've done is painful and disrespectful to everyone involved, but they couldn't have done it without more than a little help from the fairer sex.
There are lots of behaviours society expects women to emulate. The world's signs of female strength and worth are based on diverse measurements, so how can we know if any of them is right?
Marriage and Healthy Arguments
Some people tend to shy away from arguments in their marriage. They claim to be the peace-keeper and this means keeping quiet about things that really annoy them. This of course, is setting off a time bomb which is potentially counting down to the end of the relationship. No one wants to, or should be abused and shouted at, but sensible adults understand that we cannot be right all the time. Arguments therefore, can be one of the many positive elements a marriage needs to develop into a secure and lasting union.

Falling In And Out Of Love
You spend ages wanting to fall in love. You look at happy couples when you're single and yearn to experience the closeness and happiness they do in their relationship. You walk with your head bent and fascinate about all the sweetness life would bring you when you finally fall in love and have a relationship of your own. Then it happens! What's next?
This is to make sure that the love meter hovers exactly over the middle of half and half (or 50% each). But is this the way relationships are meant to be?
