Meeting love for the first time

By BusinessLife, published on May 4, 2011

Love, leave me not at this moment.

I am trying so hard to believe in you.

I am trying to move close enough to see into your eyes, to feel your warmth and to understand that you indeed exist.

Is this what magic may be like?

Is it possible to be able to grasp love's intentions like a bouquet of wildflowers?

I want to inhale you...breathe you in as I see so many others have done before now.

Is this my time? May I have time with you?

Do you see my tears that may be my first tears of joy?

Can you allow me the time to taste the sweet nectar... (more)

Time again to hope again. Tick tock. Tick tock.

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 24, 2011

...Connecticut. We would share what our days were like and we took the simple pleasure of conversation as the connection between one to the other.

Or maybe the simplest form of passing notes that said, "I like you. Do you like me? Check Yes or No."

Too many of today's 'grown up' relationships-to-be make no sense. Seems so many around me can make magic out of mud pies. But somehow, I never got the recipe.

And then I stop to wonder, is there really a true interest in having someone to share life's journey with in the first place? Why beat the drum when those who would... (more)

Love doesn't always come with an offering plate

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 12, 2011

I can't take one more step towards something I just simply don't believe in anymore.

Today, I learn to live appreciating what I see, what I feel and knowing that love is an explosion of sentiments, experiences and questions that often have no answers.

I hear you pushing me to explain why I can't say, "I am in love with you."

But what answer have I to bring when the words are mere illusions to me?

How can I fathom what the touch of this sentiment brings if I can not relate to the words, the moments in time that have never past the door of my soul?

What more... (more)

New online platform takes on relationship management

By BusinessLife, published on Apr 5, 2011

Couples in troubled relationships can already turn to print and online advice columnists. Now springwise.com reports that a newer option, however, is to use technology to help prevent such disagreements from ever arising. That's the premise behind Tokii, which bills itself as the world's first relationship management platform.

Now in beta, Canadian Tokii is a free site that aims to help couples improve their relationships in a playful, easy way through interactive tools and games. The site's TradingPost tool, for example, helps couples negotiate for what they want — a back rub,... (more)

TALK ABOUT IT - What's a great date in 2011?

By BusinessLife, published on Mar 16, 2011

TALK ABOUT IT (TAI),

I'm in my mid to late 40s and have been divorced for about six years now. It's taken some time for me to truly feel comfortable with the idea of spending time with another woman in a romantic situation. I loved my wife very much and lost her to breast cancer. It was a tough battle and extremely painful at the end. But I am finally starting to think about dating again after all this time. I'm pretty sure that this one lovely lady that I recently met through some mutual friends is interested in me. But as far as dating, I really have no idea what the right type of... (more)

TALK ABOUT IT: Too fat to get married?

By BusinessLife, published on Mar 11, 2011

Dear "Talk About It,"

I need your help. I've been engaged for about two years now. I love my man very much. He's a hard worker and he is dependable and he makes me laugh as well as smile. He tells me he loves me all the time. But when we were talking just a few days ago about our upcoming wedding in the fall, he finally told me that he had come to a decision about us getting married. He said that I had been getting bigger and that I was acting like I didn't want to take care of myself. He has a good body. He works out sometimes but I think he just naturally keeps his weight where he... (more)

Talk About It - Charlie Sheen's Next Goddess?

By BusinessLife, published on Mar 8, 2011

Dear Talk About It,

I found out from a friend of mine who does exotic dancing that Charlie Sheen is open to bringing in another goddess in his home! I'm so excited I don't know what to do. I have watched all of his shows and all of his recent interviews and think he is so hot! I really want to be with him but I'm having a hard time deciding how I can capture his attention. My girlfriend knows this guy who knows one of Charlie's former bodyguards who can help give him something from me. What should I do?

Sincerely,

Hot for Charlie <3

Let's Talk About It...

By BusinessLife, published on Mar 8, 2011

Okay, we have another question that takes us into the bedroom.

Let's Talk About It,

I am a sorta cute divorced woman. I'm 35 years old. I have a daughter and she's 9, but I want to get on with my life. I need to have some grown up time, too. So, this boyfriend I been with for a couple of weeks wants me to dress up in little girl's clothes and wear patent leather shoes when we are you know, together. What should I do? Do you think this is weird?

Signed,

Little Bo Peep

Part 2 Miscarriage Of Justice

By Lumiere, published on Mar 6, 2011

...is because I spent most of my childhood watch my mother forgive my stepdad, over and over regardless of how abusive he was. My personal vow, was to do the exact opposite and set boundries. Throughout my life, it has steered me free and clear of any type of emotional or physical abuse in my relationships, until my partner and I passed the four year and seven month mark in our relationship. Something went terribly wrong.

On Valentines evening, 2/14 I sat with my partner Williams at the rooftop bar at the Empire Hotel. The flickering of the fireplace behind us made her hair glow a... (more)

Dear Diary, Why Can't Men Be Men?

By BusinessLife, published on Mar 3, 2011

Dear Diary,

I think I know a lot more about what I want from a man than I have been willing to share. I guess it may have to do with the fact that having to ask a man to be a gentleman and a champion of my honor seems a bit sad. I grew up thinking that men were physically stronger and that part of their role in a long-term relationship (marriage) was to love and honor a woman.

I would love to be loved by:
