If this person can do all of these, then this is the person you want to love, fall in love with, discover love and life with and wait for if you want t to have a real, and long-lasting relationship.

How Monogamy Can Make Your Sex Life Better

Some people think that “Sex” and “Monogamy” don’t always go together naturally. Couples, who are in monogamous relationships, often get teased that asking them how they’re comfortable or accepting of that fact they'll be having sex with one person for the rest of their lives. Some comments are valid, some funny, and there are some that are completely untrue. Yes, having sex with the same person for a long time can get boring sometimes, but that doesn’t mean that monogamy is responsible for it. If approached with the right attitude and intentions, monogamous sex can be a highly rewarding and fulfilling experience than another kind of arrangements.

Here are a few ways that monogamous sex can improve your sexual relationship with your spouse:

Monogamous sex has emotional benefits

When you’re having sex with a long-term partner, you’re bringing the best qualities of your relationship into the bedroom. If you’re honest and trustworthy in your daily life, that same sense of personal intimacy will be carried over into your sex lives. This type of personal intimacy will have an astounding positive impact on the sex itself.

Monogamous sex comes with physiological benefits

When you’re in a monogamous relationship, having sex (protected or unprotected) is much easier. Monogamous sex has less sexual tension because you don’t have to worry or be anxious about past sex life of your partner.

Monogamous sex is familiar

Let’s face it, sometimes, having sex with the same partner over and over again can get too familiar and things can become less exciting or enjoyable. But, you’re having sex with someone who knows your body inside and out. You don’t have to learn anything new; there is no learning curve. When you initiate sex with someone you’re familiar for a long time, they already know what your sexual preferences are.

Monogamous sex cultivates honesty

Opening up to your partner about sex and what you exactly need isn’t simple. You're in no mood to hurt their feelings or show them they’re doing something unexpected or wrong. Unless, you’re lucky to be in a situation, where you’ve been in a long-term, committed relationship with someone and trust them long enough, you won’t hesitate to tell them, “No, it’s not like that. It’s like this.” However, if you’ve been your sexual preferences hidden from your long-term girlfriend or boyfriend, then yes, there can be some awkwardness if you tell your partner that you like to try some different sexual moves. But, at least, both of you should be comfortable enough telling your partner that you need something else as the two of trust each other. That type of honesty isn’t entirely exclusive to monogamous relationships, but having conversations like these are a lot easier in monogamous relationships.

Monogamous sex is as adventurous as non-monogamous sex

When a couple has been in a committed relationship for a long time, they either stop having sex regularly, or they’re open to trying new things. What most couples in monogamous relationships don’t realize is that it’s the perfect place to explore and evolve sexually. Only a monogamous relationship can provide you with a safe place and trusted spouse to experiment with.

Who Gives The Worst Relationship Advice? Well, Your Parents, Your Friends, And Celebrities, Of Course!

Most people assume that relationships happen naturally. If you’ve met your soulmate or found the right person, then your relationship will proceed smoothly. But, unfortunately, this magical and unrealistic thinking can leave a lot of couples confused, worried, frustrated, and either settling for a relationship that’s less satisfying or isn’t right for them or breaking up.

There is some advice that might be helpful to resolve some of the issues in the relationship or marriage, but not all relationships are good. Some advice might naturally look like guidance to but they may, in fact, will harm the relationship.  To help you avoid those mistakes, these are the three places that you shouldn’t look for relationship advice:

  1. Your Parents

Your parents have helped you get through infancy, toddlerhood, and adulthood. You tried to push them back during adolescence but you still were there for them, and they did everything they can to keep you from doing long-term damage. So, it’s natural you’ll look to them for relationship and marriage advice. There might be a possibility that your parents’ marriage might be not that health or there is a good chance that you may be a child of a divorce. This can put your marriage or relationship at a risk of failure. To be honest, many of us don’t delve too deeply into our parents’ marriages and having a conversation about the inner workings of their marriage to one or both of them isn’t a good idea.

  1. Celebrities

Most of us tend to seek information including relationship advice, from social media, TV, radio or the entertainment magazines. You may have read about your favorite celebrities falling in love, and because they are rich, famous, or glamorous, you might think they must be doing it right. But, celebrities are just people like you, and they happen to be living under a microscope. So, they don’t know much about relationships and what makes a relationship work than you do. Therefore, it’s unwise to follow their examples simply because they’re public.

  1. Your Friends

There is a high possibility that most of the things you know about your friends’ marriages are superficial. You’ll see their Facebook or Instagram posts where they’re laughing and smiling, and say loving and cute things to each other. You’ll also see them enjoy or having fun at parties or backyard barbecues, but sometimes, what they share about their lives on social media might not match what’s actually occurring behind closed doors. You might discover about their constants arguments or the lack of sex and intimacy in their relationships. But, you somehow decide to laugh it off or ignore it because you feel uncomfortable about it or simply don’t want to get involved. It’s not uncommon to your friends complaining a lot of about their spouses while hanging out with them. It becomes much easier if you get involved in the conversation, then talk about what might actually happen and what can be done to resolve it. If you’re lucky, you might have one friend who might give some useful relationship advice. Unfortunately, they may also be ill-equipped to advise you. And if this buddy is single or divorced themselves, they can be biased towards you.

Respect-The Number One Important Factor In A Relationship

What is the most important factor to have a healthy relationship? Most people will say its trust, chemistry, or emotional connection. But, it’s not. It is respect. You might find this interesting, but it’s true. And this got me thinking. If people picked respect to be the most important factor to have a healthy relationship, it’s because it was missing in their previous relationships. Most relationships lack respect, and it’s this lacking that has created a large imprint, or otherwise, the answer would have been something else. Here’s another interesting fact: it’s mostly women who want respect to be the most important factor in a romantic relationship or marriage.

If you’ve been in a relationship or marriage where respect was missing, you compromised. And because you overly compromised in your relationship, it affected you, your beliefs, your views, and about yourself. The lack of respect in your relationship has also adversely affected you to enjoy other experiences in the relationship as well because you forgot what you deserved and wanted to be treated. You forgot the fact without respect no relationship can survive, let alone thrive. But you accepted it anyway. Relationships today are lacking respect. It has become optional or turned into something we don’t pay much attention. But, without respect, you can’t build trust in your relationship. Trust, like respect, is also another vital factor for a healthy relationship. And without trust, no relationship can survive. There won’t do anything left, only the skin.

It’s imperative to know that a safe space is needed for relationships to thrive and grow. Without trust, safe spaces cannot be built. And you need respect to form trust in the relationship.

So, how can you define respect in romantic relationships? Well, respect in relationships means no one has power or control over someone else. Respect means you don’t have to agree with everything your boyfriend or girlfriend to love them. It means to give someone the space he or she needs to have their own opinions. Respect means to accept and acknowledge, not judge or react or be controlling. It means not impose your own opinions and views on your partner, and have to ability to work on your issues.  Ask yourself if there’s respect in your relationship because, without it, the relationship you’re building won’t survive very long. And if you’re still single and looking for a relationship, learn how to people around you as well as their opinions and views, in case it lacks in your life, because it required for any relationship to thrive.

It might be that respect has been missing in all your relationships, but you didn’t get affected by it so far, until now. Maybe, it’s time; you should be asking yourself why respect has been missing in your life? Don’t blame your girlfriend or anyone for it. Ask yourself why didn’t respect manifest within you. Maybe, it happened slowly, or there was some or enough of it at the beginning, but it gradually drained, but feelings came in, and you compromised. It’s okay because that’s what we all do when we are in a relationship. But, don’t compromise yourself. And if you see that your significant other isn’t respecting you, you’re compromising yourself.

Must-Follow Relationship Rules For Happy Love Life

Many people find love quite confusing and tricky. Such people may be in a relationship, but still, they lack the real experience of true love. Like everything else, love too is based on certain rules to be successful. Following these rules is a necessity for making your love life worth living.

Every relationship has the potency to flourish and blossom into something magnificent and glorious. All you need is to remember the following rules and keep your relationship happy and alive:

Relationship Rules that matter

You should be committed to creating a strong bond between yourself and your life partner. For this purpose, you need to know about the rules that matter and are helpful in living a contented life.

  • Don’t be selfish and love your partner unconditionally.
  • Each time when it comes to the matter of the heart, try to think from the perspective of your love.
  • Lack of communication forms the basis of many serious issues in love life. Therefore it is strongly advised to stay in communication. Always discuss and sort out every problem. Otherwise, you will start drifting apart from each other.
  • Always try to end an argument as early as possible.
  • The closest of the couples even require spending time alone. Learn to give space and give a chance to miss each other.
  • Compliment your partner now and then. Never try to take them for granted.
  • Sometimes you are allowed to tell a white lie to your partner. A lie which does not adversely affect your relationship but, in fact, it will make your partner satisfied and happy.
  • Every relationship faces tough times. It is the time to stand side by side. Always be a shoulder that your partner can lean on. In the end, love will shine even brighter than before.
  • Take good care of yourself. Be concerned about your appearance. Just because you are in a relationship now does not mean that you start putting on weight and leave yourself shabby.
  • Celebrate every occasion together, especially birthdays and anniversaries. These are the moments to be cherished later on.
  • Never make your partner feel bad intentionally as it will leave a lasting scar on the relationship.
  • Forgiveness is the quality that matters a lot in a relationship. Learn to forgive your partner. Clear your heart and don’t keep grudges as it will end up spoiling your relationship.
  • You need to respect your partner no matter what the situation.
  • Trust your partner even if your partner tries to say otherwise.
  • Couples should learn to spend quality time with each other. There is no other way to fall in love all over again with each other.
  • Don’t always wait for the special occasions to arrive. Be spontaneous with your feelings.
  • Surprise your partner with small love notes and gifts. Gifts need not be the expensive ones. A bouquet or a bar of chocolate can make the day of your love.
  • Never grumble or be abusive with each other.
  • Behave like a child now and then. A few pillow fights can add small happy moments to your life.

4 MustTackle Intimacy Issues That Might Scare You

Apart from the popular belief, intimacy isn’t purely physical. It’s not necessary to be sexually involved with someone to be intimate with them. Rather, intimacy is a bond that builds over time between two people that involves spiritual trust, emotional closeness, spiritual trust, and physical closeness. But, establishing intimacy both physical and emotional isn’t easy as it’s rife with many issues.

Here are four intimacy issues most of us are afraid to face and which must be tackled head on.

1. How can I define and pace my physical relationship
Intimacy is not solely a sexual issue; we told that before. But, the physical connection does play a role. When you meet someone you like and start dating him or her, topics like “how soon” or “how much” can be intimidating. It’s true that you take things slow in the relationship, but it’s also imperative that you express your desires and feelings honestly and directly if you want your relationship to be a success. So how do you talk about the topic? At first, locate a safe and comfortable environment. Second, make your potential partner at ease by letting them know how much you care and value them. Finally, call on your inner strength, and communicate your needs.

2. How to communicate your emotional desires and needs
Communicating your emotional needs is equally as important as your physical desires in an intimate relationship. By regularly expressing your feelings and needs in healthy ways, you’re demonstrating your emotional well-being to your potential partner. If you get a favorable response, while working on fulfilling your emotional needs as well as addressing theirs, you’re well in the right way in building a solid foundation of intimacy.

3. How to establish and maintain trust
In a healthy intimate relationship, trust is a key element. But, building trust takes time. Therefore, give yourself and your partner some time threading on this very delicate issue. Reveal yourselves slowly and carefully to each other. Pay close attention to the other person’s actions and words. As you keep explaining yourself ask yourself how does it feel? Do you feel safe and comfortable? If yes, then keep going. You’re on your way in building an intimate relationship with your potential boyfriend or girlfriend.

4. How to talk about exclusivity in your relationship
This topic is by far one of the toughest intimacy issues to talk about in any new romantic relationship. How do you know that you both are in an exclusive relationship? Have you taken things too fast, too soon? Are you in a safe spot to talk about it? Instead of letting your fear or insecurities to engulf you completely, call in your inner strength and when the moment comes, have a discussion about it. For instance, taking about being exclusive on a first date is very soon and not a wise decision. However, if you’ve been dating for a few weeks or months, engaged in an intimate physical relationship, started to talk about the future of your relationship, then we can safely tell that it’s time for a heart to heart conversation about making things exclusive with your partner.

Want Your Partner To Change? Here’s What You Should You Do

If you want your spouse to change, the first thing you need to do is by starting to accept them for who they are. People will only change when they feel they’re liked, loved and accepted the way they are. When people think they’re disliked, unappreciated, and criticized, they’ll resist any changes. Why? Because they feel like they’re under siege and will do anything to protect themselves.

Instead of criticizing your girlfriend or boyfriend, remind yourself of all of the things you love and appreciate about him or her, and share those things with them. Be genuinely interested in understanding why they see and do things that are different than you. Appreciate, respect and even celebrate what makes each of those differences unique. Sure, you’ll stumble across some traits that should never be tolerated in a relationship, like addiction, abuse, or infidelity.

Below are four things you can consider doing when you want your partner to change.  Rather than fixing issues in your relationship, these changes will make your relationship better.

  1. Be A Better Spouse

Most people remain in unhappy relationships with the innate desire to change their partner. However, no change will take place, if you don’t free yourself from the pattern you’re stuck in. The change will only come from the bottom up. It means change should come from the partner who is in the most pain, or has the least power, or has compromised or lost too much in the relationship.

  1. Focus On The Problems At Hand

When you fully focus on changing your spouse, you lose the opportunity to work together and figure out a solution. If you with this approach you’re no longer on the same team. Instead, focus on the problems on hand that will satisfy you and your partner’s needs. Anger and resentment in the relationship are generally a manifestation of hidden hurt, fear, and frustration. So, focus on expressing your thoughts and feelings in a vulnerable way that appeals to your girlfriend or boyfriend to understand your pain, instead of pushing them away.

  1. Accept Responsibility

We should take responsibility on how our words and actions make our partner feel. Be responsible for the problem and apologize to your spouse, even if the problem is insignificant. It will promote forgiveness, validate their feelings, and will allow both of you to move on.

  1. Don’t Blame Anyone While Complaining

One of the primary reasons for divorces is criticizing your partner. Criticism is different from voicing a complaint. When you criticize someone, you’re basically attacking the core of a person’s character. On the other hand, when you complain about someone, the complaint focuses on a specific behavior of a person. Successful couples, instead of complaining, talk to each other about their feelings in a positive viewpoint and assure each other that they’re both doing the best they can. They don’t talk about what they do not need. By becoming better friends, you can create a healthy, secure bond that will help you resolve and handle challenging moments together. This is much more fruitful than believing that you want your spouse to change. Instead of attempting to change your significant other, be the change you want to envision in your relationship.

These Are The 5 Traits Men Find Irresistible In Women

Women understand what men want to see in a woman. They learned all they can talk about it, what feels irresistible to them, and gives it to them. Women have learned to be someone men can’t resist at the party; they don’t always need to be the most attractive.

If you’re having issues attracting and keeping a guy around, here are the five irresistible in traits men find women:

1. Irresistible Women Gives Positive Experiences
She knows very well that to build a deeper emotional connection with a man it is important to have fun, a loving, and positive experiences in a relationship. It’s these types of experiences will make a man want to come back for more. When a man is with a woman, he wants her to bring joy into his life, not sadness. So, when you’re spending time with a man, focus on enjoying the moment, and stop worrying about the past, the future, or anything else for that matter.

2. Irresistible Women Pursues Her Passions
A woman of high-value and integrity will have her own friends, hobbies, passions, and things when her boyfriend isn’t with her. If a guy wants a night out for himself or hangs out with his friends without you, an irresistible woman won’t make a huge deal out of it or do something totally unattractive or desperate to get invited. You will unhappy, and will also make your man miserable if you make him the center of your life. He will never do the things you always wanted to do, and you’ll make him feel guilty all the time of not doing things with you.

3. Irresistible Women Doesn’t Talk Bad About Her
Not acknowledging a compliment after getting it from someone is not a good thing. If a man gives you a compliment, don’t reject his positive advances. Instead say, “thank you,” or “That’s very kind of you.” Self-deprecating or talking bad about yourself demonstrates a man that you don’t care or love yourself enough. If you want to attract a good man and be in healthy, long-term relationship, you must embrace your feminine qualities; start talking positively about yourself and stop self-deprecating about your flaws. After all, how can you care and love someone, if you don’t love yourself?

4. Irresistible Women Appreciates A Man’s Masculinity
Men will be men. Men appreciate women when you understand the differences between them. It’s this realization that makes connecting with a man unpredictable and exciting. A man has his sense of masculinity and preferences and will do things differently than you. For example, if you invite your man to your friend’s wedding, and he declines, respect his decision. Don’t force to attend the ceremony that there will be men there. If a woman coerces a man to do something that he doesn’t feel to do, he will start feeling less attracted to you.

5. Irresistible Women Are Easy-Going
Men love women who are easy-going, can relax, not try to control every situation. For example, if your man is making dinner for you, and chopping tomatoes, don’t tell to cut them half in cubes or one-inch cubes. Instead, let him do his thing.

When you are looking for someone, nurture your friendships, and explore what makes you truly happy. The happiness and passion that you’ll feel in your will definitely attract you a partner.
