Celibate dating 

7:55 am Mar. 6, 2015

My friend Sean met a woman and began dating her at the end of last year.  She told him that although they have been intimate before, she doesn’t plan to do it again. She has decided to be celibate for religious reasons and her next partner would be her husband.  Sean is breaking up with her because he doesn’t want to have a relationship without physical intimacy and he is

The scientists tell us that men and women are wired differently.  How brains, logic, and reasoning don’t always mirror one another.  I think this can be both a blessing and a curse.   In the

Is it fair to judge their number?

Is there such a thing as knowing too much information about your partner? My friend asked her man about his number of sexual partners and his response shocked her. She hasn’t stopped thinking about it and keeps asking how he managed to get such high numbers.

Mind the age gap?

6:34 am Aug. 5, 2014

A friend of mine is dating outside his normal dating range. He is 37 and his new romantic interest is 26. At first he believed she was mature and they had much in common. Now that some time has gone by he sees how different they are in age and maturity.
