Relationships – Balancing the Male and Female Within Ourselves

Which of us hasn’t dreamed of ultimately acquiring and keeping our ideal relationship? What if we’re in a partnership that is confusing and usually altering? How do we cope with the loss and heartache relationships can sometimes bring? What if we never seem to be attracting any type of intimate interactions at all?

The functioning dynamics of good relationships are for many of us among the greatest mysteries of life. It really is a secret every of us seeks to unravel from the day we’re aware there is certainly far more than among us about. Why do interpersonal interactions — some thing we are all engaged in daily, just about every minute, just about every second of our lives — in some cases seem so challenging, difficult, confusing, complicated, and mysterious?

The good quality of our partnerships with others essentially reflects the high quality in the relationships we have with ourselves. Do we know who we’re, and do we like who that may be? Do we think we are worthy and deserve unconditional appreciate? While we might understand how we would like a person to adore us, do we adore ourselves that way already? Do we trust and accept all parts of ourselves? The bottom line for most all of us is we basically would prefer to be loved and accepted for who we are, for our genuine selves.

MALE AND FEMALE TEMPLATES

As we change our inner definition or template of our male and female selves to a place of balance and self-acceptance, we are able to attract somebody who is much more reflective of our true counterpart. Even when we are balanced with our inner masculine reflection, if we do not like our personal femininity, we would be unable to create a truly balanced relationship for ourselves.

Sequence Matters! – The Five Foundation Relationships1

For your next relationship to succeed in the long term, it must go through several separate, sequential, and identifiable relationships. Skipping any one can derail your future happiness.

The five foundation relationships are (1) Transition Relationship, (2) Recreational Relationship, (3) Pre-committed Relationship, (4) Committed Relationship, and (5) Marital Relationship. Skip or short-change one at your peril.

Each of the five foundation relationships can be considered a separate relationship having a unique purpose and a specific underlying question that defines each stage, the answer to which will determine whether the relationship will move on to the next stage of development or not. Done right, this is a marathon, not a sprint, and they must be done in sequence.

1. The Transition Relationship: Have I Removed My Ex from My Mind?

The first of these foundation relationships is the Transition Relationship.

How Do You Stay in Shape in a Relationship?

The joy of being in love is a sublime feeling. You always want to do everything right for your partner and seek to protect their interest at any cost. In a relationship, be it marriage or courtship, you learn the power of compromise and sacrifice, all of which are enabled due to the feeling called love.

Unfortunately, many relationships go down the drain and break up because of the parties’ inability to rekindle the old flame of love they once shared. There are so many reasons that could cause the breakdown of a relationship, and they are all valid reasons. These reasons include a breakdown in communication, frequent fighting, cheating, and, though this may sound odd, weight issues. A partner becomes frustrated when they are not comfortable with your weight, talks to you about it, and still does not see any effort to change or reduce it.

If your partner has issues with your weight, and you intend to make him feel more comfortable, you try out these tips to make you stay in shape;

Eat well, but not too much

Everyone has a different stomach capacity for food—excess food is bad for the body as it stores up as fat. You should eat to satisfy yourself, but do not at any time overeat. Let your eating be moderate and temperate. You should also make sure to eat healthy foods and take healthy drinks.

Eat at home

Junks are fast becoming a trend in many homes, especially if both parties are working. You leave for work very early and come back very late, so there is no time to cook. Therefore, you are left with the option of buying junks to keep the body working. This is a bad habit and is sure to increase your weight … READ MORE ...

5 Critical Shocking Facts Most Men Worldwide Don’t Know About Women

5 Critical Shocking Facts Most Men Worldwide Don't Know About Women

Esquire magazine runs an enlightening column every month in its print issue, putting a female celebrity in the spotlight and asking them to answer that eternal question: What do most men not know about women?

The list is extensive and the answers are varied, but for the best results in your dating career, file these five rules to memory.

1. Too many compliments spoil the broth. Girls love getting compliments. They do. They don’t spend hours getting ready for nothing. A well chosen compliment goes a long way. However, there are benefits in restraint. Showering her with compliments, even though you mean it, will dilute the impact. She might even begin to think that you have ulterior motives, or worse, guilty of something. At which point, paranoia creeps in.

2. Women dress to impress other women. Remember that when you’re tempted to ask her about her uncomfortable looking babydoll-and-leggings combination. She won’t be impressed by any snide comments, especially if her girlfriends think she looks fab. Instead, tell her she looks very trendy. It’ll score you points or it’ll make you sound gay. And if it’s the latter, then you can always prove her otherwise, right?

3. Selective hearing. All the nice things you’ve said about her will be wiped out by a single negative remark. Praise and flattery are background noise, but she’ll zero in on a criticism like a shark to chum. And she’ll remember it for life, bringing it up months from now. So lads, even if you don’t have anything nice to say, say something nice.

4. Never trust a woman without girlfriends. If she’s managed to pissed off and alienate all of her female friends, what chance do you stand? You might think that her reduced requirement for girly time and shopping excursions might mean … READ MORE ...
