John Valentine ii What with all of the wonderful reasons why marrying a foreigner is fantastic fun see our post 10 Reasons Why You Should Marry a Foreigner , there are some definite downsides as well. Below are a few reasons for why I find international marriage difficult. Far away from family. One of us is always living far, far, far away from family and friends. There will never be a time when we are close to his family as well as mine. Loss of holiday traditions. My husband especially feels this when Christmastime rolls around: There is nothing even close to a Weihnachtsmarkt here in Seattle and where is the smell of roasting nuts filling the air? When I lived in Germany, Thanksgiving came and went without even the sighting of a turkey, let alone family getting together to celebrate. Things just feel a little less warm and comforting when our holiday traditions disappear.
Stop Missing Dating Opportunities
What do guys like in a girl? What do men want in a woman that makes them see them as a catch? Moreover, we also need to factor in what men want in their life. We need to look at all three areas because they are interconnected.
Does anyone else simply feel resentful toward a stepchild who lives with them full time and find the child annoying.
Are men really that insecure? Tell me honestly, Evan — are there any good men out there who appreciate a woman who knows herself? I am educated, refined, and a self made millionaire by age I am good looking. Many men, women, elderly, and children of all ages have told me so. People also told me that I am one of nicest and sweetest people they have ever met.
The Parable Of The Talents
Dec 27, All of these stories make me sad. I keep hoping I will get to see a light at the end of this tumultuous tunnel. My ex-husband and I get a long very well. It took a lot of work, but we did it for the good of our child.
@BGR Bravo! You get a standing “O” for this most needed correction in Christian culture.. Two thumbs up and a hearty “Amen”. Tis a shame that teachings like this are not usually part of the older women teaching the younger women curriculum.
I also did you the courtesy of not bothering you at your house located on you know what lake even though I wanted to. So, that allows me to use Garfield as an example, right? Thanks for doing me a solid, Jim. Before I begin this post, I need to say something important. Even though the facts in this post are all true and the events unfortunately all occurred, the post itself is written in an extremely satirical style and contains quite a bit of sarcasm.
I have a bit of a problem when I meet truly egregious people who harm others. When I tell their stories, which are very terrible, I naturally resort to satire and sarcasm just to keep my own sanity. I do this to help suspend a little bit of the reality of a situation and also do this so I can laugh and hope that others can laugh too. The only way to survive trauma is to be able to laugh. If I wrote about these events in the dead-serious tone they deserve, you and I would be haunted.
Take my word for it, because I am haunted by these experiences. You need to be aware of these egregious situations.
5 Reasons Your Wife Doesn’t Want Sex
Then I asked a bunch of guys the same thing. First, I believe that God created both men and women with sex drives. We both should yearn to make love. And men are much more visually stimulated than women are. They are supposed to be aroused fairly easily, because it gives them an impetus to really pursue women. Therefore, a man with a low sex drive should be a rare thing.
After that it seemed like I always had to initiate the conversations to get a response. It really seemed like he cared so why would he go from talking to be all the time to not talking at all?
It will require a bit of hard work at first, but you can turn intimacy into a habit. A bit of playful attitude and some actual games can put intimacy back in your relationship. Relationship games that build intimacy outside the bedroom As they say, intimacy happens hours before you enter the bedroom. Here are some wholesome games you can play with your partner so your relationship will become more intimate and fun.
The game is pretty simple. You and your partner alternately ask each other questions and make sure you both vow to be honest with your answers. What makes this useful is that couples can ask each other questions in a playful, non-accusing manner. Reserve those topics for serious conversations. Weekend household cleaning could be a bummer or could be fun. If you notice that neither of you are looking forward to it, make it exciting by having a chore wheel. Make a spinning wheel or buy one online and then write the basic chores on it like throwing the trash, cleaning the bathroom, mowing the lawn, etc.
Each one spins which chores he or she will do for the day. Whoever finishes first will be the princess or prince of the night and whoever loses will be the slave.
Why Doesn’t My Husband Want to Make Love?
And those are just the ones who owned up to it. Your woman is stressed at work. You just need more date nights. Life is hard and tiring. The list goes on and on. While all of the above may be true, no one is saying the biggest overarching reason:
Today’s guest post is by Bishop Bill. I recently read a very interesting article in Time Magazine about the LDS (and Jewish) dating scene. I have a particular interest in this as I have a daughter in her late 30s that was widowed last year due to cancer, and she lives in Utah County.
Sharing my life and times dealing with Parkinson’s Disease and everything else. When I was newly diagnosed, I sure wished that someone could have told me what PD really feels like. I now know that it is different for everyone, and furthermore that a lot of the symptoms are really, really hard to describe. However, I still would have liked to have read or heard more first hand accounts of what it was like.
So, I thought I would describe some of my symptoms, in case there’s someone out there wondering about it. Now, I’m in the “honeymoon” phase of treatment. Still, there are symptoms that come and go in different cycles; some within the course of a day, some over days, weeks or months. They are all exacerbated by stress, extremes of heat or cold, and illness of any kind.
‘Time’ isn’t the only factor when considering dating a separated or recently divorced person
This is for all you women out there in a relationship with a man who does not try to have sex with you at least a few times per week, if not daily. Ever been with a man like that? These men tend to be passive and avoidant in all forms of sexuality, including touching, kissing and verbal sexuality dirty talk.

This is a question I have been often asked with an expression of guilt. Men physiologically tend to desire sex more than women. Laumann , there are several differences in the sex drive of a man and a woman. Men think about sex more. Men seek sex more avidly. Women take a less direct route to sexual satisfaction.
