New blog post, and this one's important! It’s very easy to lie to your spouse about a very small purchase and then start lying more in the future about bigger purchases, and soon it becomes a shopping addiction, gambling, trading stocks, or collecting antique cars in your friends garage! Don't let something so easily preventable really mess up your relationship! http://www.lastingconnections.net/financialinfidelityisaseriousproblem

How Sugar Daddies Are Financing College Education

Matchmaker Sameera Sullivan will be giving her two cents on KGOradio.com in San Francisco this Saturday, October 4th at noon about how "Sugar Daddies are financing College Education" . Tune in and listen to her live about this topic! http://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2014/09/how-sugar-daddies-are-financing-college-education/379533/

The popular website Seeking Arrangement sets up "mutually beneficial relationships" between wealthy older men and young female students. What the site doesn’t talk about is sex.

For all you fun, sexy singles with children...don't be too eager to rush into "The Brady Bunch" setup when first dating. It's okay to compartmentalize your life when meeting someone new. Get to know your partner for the person that they are and establish a solid connection as adults before auditioning them for the role of stepmom/stepdad. Even if you can tell they're someone your children would adore, resist the temptation to introduce them too soon. It can add a lot of pressure to your budding romance, and moreover it can lead to confusion for your children if the relationship doesn't work out.

Maintaining a healthy, fulfilling relationship often proves more challenging than 'catching' that special someone in the first place. Just because you've caught them doesn't mean you should take them for granted. Write little love notes for him to find. Leave a single stem of her favorite flower on her pillow. And then go about your day. It doesn't take much to show you care...but little gestures like these go a long way.

09/22/2014

You're told to stay true to yourself in all other parts of your life, right? So it's only logical to remain true to yourself when dating too. If dinners and conversation aren't your cup of tea...no problem! If you're both into computers and video games, then have a gaming night. If you're into outdoorsy activities, plan a hike. Remember: if you're not doing things you're comfortable with and that you enjoy, you'll appear uncomfortable or even unhappy...and then your date might start to think it's them, not just the venue, making you that way.

Thoughts on soul mate by Elizabeth Gilbert: “People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.” ―Elizabeth Gilbert (Elizabeth M. Gilbert is an American author, essayist, short story writer, biographer, novelist and memoirist. )

25 Jokes That Show How Joan Rivers Blended Humor, Hardship and Chutzpah

Ever had someone misunderstand you in an email and unnecessarily got upset? Communicating via email can sometimes be hazardous to a relationship! It's so easy to mistake or not "get" the tone intended in a message.

Joan Rivers shared her thoughts on the situation:
"I've learned what's funny verbally ain't so funny on e-mail: They don't hear your intonations. Melissa broke up with somebody over that. She tried to tell him: 'That was a joke!' But he just didn't get it. Mick Jagger said, 'F––– 'em if they don't get the joke.' And I love him. That comes with age: Knowing it's their problem, not mine."

The comedian, who died at age 81 Thursday, had a knack for zany and insightful one-liners

52% of singles say they’re too busy to meet someone. Are you too busy to smile at someone on your morning walk? Too busy to say hello as you’re passing by the cutie at the gym? Too busy to hold the door for someone at the movies or the office? Ohhhhh… ah hah… Now you’re getting it!

Try this on your next first date: Come into it with the intention of making the other person feel comfortable. Talk about things that interest them. You'll be amazed at how much more quickly they open up to you and reveal themselves. Most of us walk into a date with the intention of judging the other person and deciding if they are suitable for subsequent dates. People can sense that and their guard immediately goes up, preventing you from getting to know them when they're at their best and most comfortable. Try changing your attitude and you'll see that you're actually serving yourself better by doing this!

Are you dismissing Mr. Nice Guy because Mr. Chase seems so much more exciting? After all, isn't that what we want out of romance -- excitement and having our heart skip a beat, or two, or a thousand? Maybe Mr. Nice Guy seems a tad too ordinary and maybe a bit boring at first. If you really want to get rid of your single status, here's why Mr. Nice Guy deserves a second glance...

That guy who treats you like an afterthought will always treat you like an afterthought. Say yes to a date with the nice guy. Save the drama for the movies.

Fall in love

Check out the fall dating do's and don'ts from "She Knows." There are some really great observances here! One of our favorites is to "go back to school." Continuing ed is a great way to meet new people, so pick up that class schedule and sign up for a class like sailing, real estate, investing, wine tasting/making, etc. Taking a class together is one of the easiest ways to meet other people and you already know you have at least one interest in common! Plus, people that have time to take a class are more likely to be in a position to also have room for a relationship in their lives.

A change of seasons is the perfect opportunity to rethink your dating habits. Here's some real world advice to ramp up your dating skills and prospects to make this fall an autumn to remember.
