How to Leave Someone You Love: The Guide to Help You Decide

How to Leave Someone You Love: The Guide to Help You Decide
If you ask how to leave someone you love, first consider why you want to leave and make sure you are doing the right thing. When I first started the rough draft of this feature, the direction I was looking for was just how to leave someone you love. I then went on to list all the ways you walk away from love for whatever reason you think you must. But, then, I had a change of heart. Why the change of heart? I don’t know if it is just me, my age, or the environment that we live in, but what I see in my own life and the world is disheartening. I have a very few number of friends who are still ma...

How to Communicate in a Relationship: 14 Steps to a Better Love

How to Communicate in a Relationship: 14 Steps to a Better Love
The old saying “communication is key” is not wrong. But it’s a lot easier to tell someone how to communicate in a relationship than to actually do it. Many of us confuse communication with having a conversation. Sure, talking to someone is basic communication, but just because you’re talking doesn’t mean you express your feelings nor does it mean that the other person truly understands what you say. Learning how to communicate in a relationship is what makes it work or where it all falls apart. So, yes, communication is key, but what we really mean is effective communication is key. How to com...

How to Change Up Your At-Home Date Night for Lasting Love

How to Change Up Your At-Home Date Night for Lasting Love
Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Nancy DeVault of DateNightGuide.com. Life is full of responsibilities ─ work, kids, etc. ─ which can distract couples from making each other a priority. Consequently, spouses who don’t spend quality time together risk losing their connection and/or feeling less satisfied in their marriage. Committing to a routine date night can be a small change with big relationship benefits! In fact, the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia recently published the Date Night Opportunity study, which found that regular date nights achieved high...

If You Or Someone You Love Is Hiding Depression — Almost Perfectly

If You Or Someone You Love Is Hiding Depression — Almost Perfectly
People who are married or who’ve been together a long time think they know each other pretty well. You can finish each other’s sentences. You know what they order on a burger, or if California rolls are their favorite. Someone wants to throw them a surprise birthday party?

Your predictions are accurate. However, it’s nice to occasionally get a good laugh, as you deligh...
