|[2007-03-01] Russian brides turned to be... men!|
|The Ministry of Home Affairs of Russia is investigating an unusual criminal case of "Russian brides". The case was initiated because of several complaints that have been received from the citizens of USA, Canada and Australia, who tried to find a romance with Russian girls via Internet.
The scheme of the scam was wonderfully simple. On the Internet were placed photos of beautiful girls that were claiming to look for foreign husbands. Brides from Russia are so popular in the world that there were no problems with men looking for relationships. Correspondence via Internet lead to the desire to [...] |

|[2007-06-08] See dating as a wonderful time to find out about yourself and how you need to change.|
|When you are dating to learn, you can monitor your feelings, reactions, and character as you meet different kinds of people. One woman I know was always drawn to passive men who were kind; however, her dating experiences with these men were frustrating. She realized that her tastes in men were coming out of a wounded place inside of her: Her father had been overly aggressive, and she was afraid of strong men. She needed to get to a place where a stronger man would not feel like her aggressive father and push her buttons. She did this by dating stronger men and making the changes inside to wher [...] |
|[2007-06-08] See dating as an end in and of itself.|
|How do you know if marriage is in the cards for you, and, if it is, how do you know when it will happen? I, for one, did not marry until well into my thirties. I loved my dating years. They were a lot of fun, and I had wonderful experiences getting to know some really good women.
Dating is an activity where you do fun, meaningful things with interesting people. This is a great goal in and of itself. If you are not having fun dating, then something is wrong. You might be judging each person you go out with by whether or not he or she is "marriage material." If you decide he or she is not, then [...] |
|[2007-06-08] See dating as an opportunity to grow in skills.|
|Dating is a place to practice how to relate to other people. If you know you need to be more direct, for example, practice with your dates. If you need to learn how to open up and talk about yourself, your feelings, and your wants, practice it in dating. If you need to learn how to confront others and deal with conflict, practice it in dating. Or maybe you need to learn how to deny yourself, listen to others, or be less self-centered. Dating is a place where you can bring all the parts of you that need spiritual growth.
If you never learn basic relationship skills before that special someone [...] |
|[2007-06-08] See dating in a way that takes the pressure off.|
|One woman I worked with was so afraid of rejection she sabotaged her dating life. She worried so much about whether or not a guy was going to like her that she could not enjoy the date. As a result, she was always less than herself, and the guy never got to see who she really was. She actually experienced much more rejection because the guys she dated never really saw all she had to offer.
I advised her to look at a date as an activity to get to know someone and spend some time doing something fun, with no pressure. She stopped looking for a potential mate or serious relationship, and it all [...] |

|[2007-02-21] Sex Without Intimacy and Intimacy Without Sex|
Excerpt From The Relationship Handbook: How to Understand and Improve Every Relationship in Your Life by Kevin B. Burk
We no longer feel the social pressure to confine sex to committed relationships. In fact, we’re free to explore our sexuality with just about anyone we like. Sex is now an accepted recreational activity. What we often don’t realize, however, is that even casual, recreational sex still involves intimacy. We may have overcome our fear and shame about sex, but many of us still have issues regarding intimacy. If we experience more intimacy than we can handle, we will feel threa [...] |

Section 2 of the Immigration Regulations, defines spouse as:
"spouse", with respect to any person, means the party of the opposite sex to whom that person is joined in marriage;
"Marriage" means the matrimony recognized as marriage by the laws of the country in which it took place. By definition this excludes common-law relationships.
"Opposite sex" means one man and one woman. By definition this excludes same sex couples.

|[2007-02-21] Taking Care of Yourself in the Moment|
Maria consulted with me because she was frustrated about the distance she felt in her relationship with her husband, Carl. He wanted to be close to her, but she didn’t feel close to him.
“I think the problem is that he often talks to me in a judgmental or condescending way. He sounds like a parent rather than a partner. I just hate being spoken to like that.”
“How do you respond when he speaks to you like that?” I asked.
“I withdraw and feel badly. Then later I sometimes try to talk with him about it, but he doesn’t know what I’m talking about. He thinks I’m too sensitive and that I just [...] |

|[2008-04-04] The Financial Risks of Online Dating|
|A reader recently reminded me why dating websites are not always worth theirmonthly fees. She writes that since she signed up for one over a month ago,she still has not found a suitable match. Yet, as a senior, she says shewould like online dating to work out since it is easier than trying to meetpeople in person. (And you don't have to be a senior for that to be true-fewpeople enjoy trying to find dates in dark, loud bars.)Online dating sites can work, but you have to be smart about it. The BetterBusiness Bureau reported a sharp increase in complaints about datingwebsites earlier this year, a [...] |
