|[2007-11-26] GIRLS, beware of the red roses. Men are more romantic than women when their relationships are on the rocks|
|Men still live on Mars and women on Venus, the Relationships Australia survey of 1200 adults shows.
Men trying to improve their relationships tend to cook meals or leave little notes for their partner, but women are more likely to be practical and want to "get issues out in the open".
The study also found women were twice as likely as men to want to improve relationships by spending more time with the kids.
Couples most commonly tried to improve their relationships by spending time together -- but this was true for 33 per cent of women and only 23 per cent of men.
And when asked what t [...] |
|[2007-11-26] Unlucky in love, ladies? Worry not. It's not your fault. It's just a build up of dating toxins...|
|Every so often even the females of the species have to scrabble around for a reason as to why they are not Getting Lucky. This may come as a surprise to men, who may be forgiven for feeling that they do all the hard work, and all women have to do is be blonde, under-25, and turn up to every social function in a miniskirt that barely covers their stocking tops (anything less and they just aren't making the effort). Back in the real world, it's the same old story of 'equal but different'. Unlucky-in-love males prefer to put the blame on some non-negotiable tangible - as in, they are stalkers/in [...] |
|[2007-11-26] Men who get married and have children are more likely to experience reductions in testosterone.|
|According to a study conducted by UNLV professors, men who get married and have children are more likely to experience reductions in testosterone.
“The bottom line is ‘What does testosterone do?’ It does all the things you think it does,” said Dr. Peter Gray, assistant professor for the UNLV Department of Anthropology. “It promotes libido, validates interactions, a sense of self-worth, all the kinds of things that engage successfully in the world around us eventually acquire reproductive opportunities.”
In 2000, Gray and others began looking at the affects of testosterone in more detail in t [...] |
|[2007-11-26] The statistics suggest Americans should think twice before saying "I do" again. Many people, though, say they get it right the second time.|
|Isabel Clayton of Lakeland married her high school boyfriend when she was 20 and endured an unhappy marriage for 33 years before divorcing. She eventually met a man online, and after a courtship, they married five years ago."It's wonderful," said Clayton, 63. "I tell him all the time I wish we met years ago because our lives would have been so much easier."Alice Wilson of Lake Wales had a similar experience. She wedded at 17 and persisted in a trying marriage for 37 years, partly for the sake of her children. By the time she divorced, she was embittered and couldn't imagine marrying again. But [...] |
|[2007-11-26] Parliament will start debating a proposed new law that will erase fathers from applications by single or lesbian women for IVF treatment.|
|Under the existing law, clinics are legally obliged to take into account a child's need for a father when considering such applications. But that requirement will vanish if the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill becomes law next year.
Another nail will have been hammered into the coffin of the traditional family. And another blow will have been struck against fatherhood.
This move could not have come at a worse time. Just as we are beginning to appreciate the vital role fathers play in the successful upbringing of children, Labour Ministers are sending out the utterly wrong signal [...] |
|[2007-11-26] Since 50 % of all marriages end in divorce ~ perhaps we need another look at relationships and why they are the true test of who we are .|
|As such, I will now describe thefour levelsof relationshipswe tend to set up in our quest to find ourselves.
1. " GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS "RELATIONSHIPS
Partners are joined by common fears and are usually
completely dependent on each other.
There is little if any passion,few risks are taken and no
real growth occurs.
Both partnershave settled for less than all of themselves~ but at thecost ofgrowth andpassion.
They tend tosee themselves as victimsand usually are spectators in life.
It is a dry creek bed waiting for the spring rain .

|[2007-11-26] This is the tale of one man's nervous foray into social networking.|
|Innocently thinking it was an online dating agency in disguise, I optimistically joined Facebook in the hope that desperate women would soon be knocking on my door. Fast forward four months, however, and my life is still devoid of vamps and vixens - but I can count almost 40 friends.
At least, they claim to be my friends but, on social networking sites such as Facebook, Friendster and MySpace, you never can tell. After all, some of my so-called friends barely know me (I didn't even recognise two of them by their photos) or avoid me in real life. I even agreed to be one person's friend because [...] |
|[2007-11-21] Online dating is not wrong - it's just one more way to co-create your life with God.|
|I am primarily a pastor in Southern California, but I also serve as a spokesperson for Faithmate, an online dating service. Not long ago, I was interviewed about the site by one of the leading gospel radio and magazine personalities in Houston, and we were bombarded by callers questioning whether the church should support online dating. I held my own, but the conflicting views of callers placed us at an impasse.
I was about to reach into my bag of rhetorical persuasion when my host was asked, “How did you meet your wife?” His response was shocking: “Online.” He went on to extol the virtues of [...] |
|[2007-11-21] Can being unfaithful save your relationship? Marital therapist Andrew G. Marshall reveals the unexpected benefits of betrayal|
|It seems like the ultimate irony – the least likely outcome to an act of betrayal that for most people spells the end of a marriage. Sometimes, however, instead of causing a death blow, being caught out can end up saving it. In some cases, an affair can improve a relationship that has for years been stuck in the doldrums; it can be a desperately needed wake-up call, a chance to reflect and face painful truths. Of course, this is a high-risk strategy and many couples cannot get past the bitterness and resentment that the infidelity inevitably brings, but some can and do get through the pain of [...] |
|[2007-11-21] 2 Husbands Try To Buy Cut-Rate Mail-Order Brides|
| It's not a reality TV show, at least not yet, but it does appear to be a real Internet phenomenon. It's called "The 2 Husbands" and if it's not a hoax, I'm sure it or something like it could end up on TV as soon as this summer.
The concept: Two guys are auditioning for wives, but instead of making the decision themselves, they're leaving it up to the Internet-voting public. That's right, strangers on the internet decide who they marry, paying $2 per vote for the privilege. That's where the prize money comes from: Winning brides get fifty grand each.
Also, the second guy, Tanner, is gay. Rea [...] |
|[2007-11-21] Internet scams targeting those looking for love|
|-- Some stories of love on the Internet end with happily ever afters, but the story of Terri and Todd ends with a betrayal, an empty bank account and a single broken heart.
They met online almost two years ago. She was a widow in Hudson, Ohio, who wanted to ease back into the almost forgotten world of dating. He was a man who'd faced a different kind of adversity.
Chased from New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina, Todd described moving to Africa to run an orphanage. Life there was hard, he wrote, and sometimes, despite his best efforts, children died.
By the time she realized Todd's story was [...] |
|[2007-11-19] Age Gap Marriages With Young Russian Mail Order Brides|
|When it comes to love, age is nothing but a number. For instance,count on any of these celebrities, Tom cruise and Katie Holmes, Madonna andGuy Ritchie, Salman Rushdie and Padma Laksmi, Michael Doughlas and CatherineZeta Zones, Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry.... the count is endless. Agedifference between the couple is not a big deal for many. It has been a common belief that the strongest families are those inwhich husbands are several years older than their wifes. I believe it is afine cultural norm in Ukraine - with five to fifteen years difference in ageon the average, and maybe more in som [...] |
|[2007-11-19] Playing the dating game in Ireland is much harder for women of a certain age|
|Finding love has no age limit, and that includes love the second timearound. As women reach their 40s and 50s, dating can be difficult,especially if a woman has lost a partner through death or if she has gonethrough a separation.Single mature women in Ireland now outnumber men by three to one. This meansthat the Irish dating scene for women who are seeking a second chance atlove is particularly fraught.Cleo (not her real name) lost her beloved husband Mark to cancer in 1991. Hewas just 31. She was left with two daughters, one aged three and the otherjust 11 months."Mark was just a darling, tot [...] |
|[2007-11-19] SPEED-DATING events, a dating agency, online dating sites, a profile on Facebook, or relying on friends to match-make...|
|If you’re reluctantly single, there are plenty of options to help you find romance, but which ones suit your personality?
Not everyone is comfortable with the pressure of a speed-dating night, not everyone feels safe entering cyberspace to find Mr or Ms Right, and who wants to be under the spotlight at a dinner organised by well-meaning friends?
Your personality plays a key role in deciding which options are most likely to help you find love, says Dr Monica Whitty of the School of Psychology at Queen’s University in Belfast, Ireland.
She says that while older people and those who are shy [...] |
|[2007-11-19] Russian Federation's Healthcare Ministry has approved a measure to procure a signature from women seeking an abortion|
|The document discloses the possibility of suffering grave complications from an abortion and provides a full list of potential medical hazards. The doctor performing the abortion would also sign the document, confirming he fully disclosed the medical risks and informed the woman of alternatives to abortion.Doctors are not being required to offer the document to women for signing, but the Healthcare Ministry strongly recommends that they do.The Health Ministry's proposal means the government is reluctantly realising the link between the nation's plummeting population and its staggering abortion [...] |

|[2007-11-16] There is nothing that defines relationships and sex for this generation more than Facebook.|
|Where else can you befriend, message, research and stalk all in a virtualreality that some of us take more seriously than actual reality? Think aboutit: changing one's relationship status on Facebook is the ultimate in goingsteady - it has replaced the letterman jacket and varsity pin.While technology today has affected and fostered a slew of relationships, Ican't help but wonder if all this technological interference is serving tohelp or hamper modern love.Sure, we can find our "perfect matches" on online dating sites, but can arelationship beyond emoticon-filled e-mails survive?
