List of Dating Activities #22: Couples Only

  • July 5, 2011 at 9:11 pm

Here are some great ideas for dating activities from CoolestDates.com

Get two cameras, and spilt up. Take pictures of places that bring back good memories of times together. Or take pictures of places that describe qualities of the other person. For example, if the person is sweet, take a picture of your local candy store. Once you’ve had the pictures developed, compare them over dinner, while recalling fond memories you’ve had together.

  • October 14, 2010 at 2:00 pm

OK, now I know that you all are aware that I have been married for many, many, many years, (OK, maybe not THAT long but still it’s been a good while) but my beloved and I were talking a few weeks ago about what would be a dating “deal-breaker” if we were still in the dating scene.

Ask the Married Girl #11: On Closet Space

  • July 2, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Guys often complain about the amount of closet/storage space that the women in their lives take up.  I hear comments like “Come on.  I get 3 feet and she gets everything else.  I mean, really.  How much clothing, shoes and other crap do you need anyway?!”  The same goes for counter space in the bathroom.  “Counter creep” leads to many a grumpy morning for men.  Hair brushes, gel, curling irons, hair bands, make up, soaps, cloths… the list is endless.   Ask the Married Girl #11: On Closet Space – continue reading…

Ask the married girl #10: On intimacy

  • June 25, 2010 at 10:25 pm

I know the typical comedian says “You know I haven’t had sex in a while because you can see that I have a wedding ring.” And that the typical movie portrays married couples as not really liking each other very much.  Well, you know what?  If this is your marriage, then guess what?  You don’t have a spouse; you have a roommate.  How sad is it that a loss of intimacy is the expectation for most marriages?!

The Married Girl on Priorities vs. Options

One of my favorite sayings is “Don’t make someone a priority when you are just an option to them.”  Basically by this, I just mean that you shouldn’t be the one carrying the relationship – this goes for romantic AND non-romantic relationships.

Ask the Married Girl #5: Is Manipulation OK?

Is manipulation ever OK?
 
I often hear people talk about ex-s that were manipulative, or “played mind games” or “acted crazy”.  In fact, just yesterday on the radio I heard someone ask the talk show host if it was OK for them to open a new savings account and not tell their spouse about it or the money they put into because they were afraid the person would demand to be a joint account holder and then spend all the money in the account.
