Seeking Forgiveness! Is it only a MAN thing?

Tomorrow I will be hosting my LOVESTRONG Couples Webinar on forgiveness. I thought I would get a discussion going with some funny cartoons.

Which way does your man ask for forgiveness the most?

Forgiveness#2

One thing I noticed that it was only men featured in the cartoon seeking forgiveness. How do women ask for forgiveness?

iLOVESTRONG loves kissing! Do You?

Hot-Black-Couple-Kissing-onblack-bridal-bliss1

Living off the power of Valentine’s Day, I was looking forward to the long weekend and having time to kiss “PG”, and not just hello and goodbye either. There is just something about long-deep kisses with my wife that really charges me up, especially one’s that are spontaneous. There was only one problem, I was congested and the thought of PG possibly catching some flem during an exchange was enough for her to stay away.

We were able to do other things, but I realized that kissing her, was just as exciting as the other actions of intimacy.

According to a blog by the Huffington Post, Sex, seems to be on everyone’s mind: reasons why you’re not having it, how to get more of it — and maybe more so for those estimated 40 million Americans living in a sexless marriage (defined as having sex less than 10 times a year, according to therapists).

But instead of sprinting back to the bedroom, maybe one should take things slow and start with the basic building block of intimacy: kissing.

Kissing can be “more intimate than having sex” but is one of the first things to go in a long-term or sexless marriage, says Jill Blakeway, clinic director of the YinOva Center in New York City and author of the forthcoming book Sex Again: Recharging Your Libido. When kissing falls by the wayside, it’s the first step to losing passion in a relationship, she notes. “Kissing is one of the first ways we connect sexually,” she said. “And then over time it goes down. But there are some physical things that make kissing important. It decreases the level of cortisol, which is a stress hormone and it increases oxytocin, which is a bonding hormone. And that’s why, chemically speaking, kissing makes people more relaxed and builds connection. Chinese medicine says that the mouth and the tongue have a connection to the heart. So it’s the same idea. Kissing attaches people to each other.”

So in order to keep your iLOVESTRONG which intimate activity is important to maintaining closeness in your Marriage?

In the next blog we will discuss the health benefits of kissing!

Have a great day!

iLOVESTRONG’s 5 tips for surviving Valentine’s Day!

flowers_pink_tulips_bouquet-0208

Valentine’s Day is the Super Bowl for Love. Right now, people including myself, are still thinking about last-minute details to make tonight special. I use to not like Valentine’s Day when my 7th grade crush didn’t acknowledge the carnation I sent her. If you are a little stressed for Valentine’s Day, here 5 tips to help you survive the day.

  1. Don’t judged your entire relationship based on this day. There is no guarantee things will work as place. 
  2. Don’t get so hyped over surprising your partner.  By reducing expectations, it will make the special event much greater when it works out, and not as painful if it doesn’t.
  3. Even if the gift isn’t exactly what you wanted. Remember it came from the heart and be honest and tell him/her. It’s how you build honesty and trust.
  4. If you are unsure what to get, use the K.I.S.S. method. A simple card, or love letter that truly expresses your feelings.
  5. If you don’t have a Valentine, don’t stress about it. There is always next year. Keep your options open and your expectations clear.

Happy Valentine’s Day and beyond.

Why isn’t your Spouse creative this Valentine’s Day? Blame the Sportstalkshows!

images (5)

According to most Arbitron ratings across the country, SportsTalk radio is usually at the top among men 25-54.

Ladies, don’t be surprised if you receive gifts from Vermont Teddy Bear‘s Hunka Love Bear, or flowers for Valentine’s Day,since they have inundated the sports radio market with commercials the past week as the gift you want on the special day.

In reality most men aren’t sure what to buy. They will fall into two categories, trying to find the perfect gift, or not really having a clue and getting something at the last minute. What I do know, they want to buy a gift that will lead them to staying up really late and receiving some really special candy.

Since, most men aren’t going to ask, iLoveStrong will ask for them. What would you like your spouse to give you for Valentine’s Day. Please answer the iLOVESTRONG Valentine’s Day poll.

iLoveStrong QoTD! – What if your Man acted more like an Insurance Company?

The other night I came across this video Stay in Your Lane Insurance by Zeus from HumpDay Romance.

The video depicts the how certain women who are casually involved with someone, but feel they have boyfriend/girlfriend privileges.

  • Smash & Dash Package  which allows no benefits to the insured.The insurer just takes.
  • Talking Package which allows you to come over and hang out, but you are kept in hiding.
  • Side-Joint Package which allows you certain privileges at specific time periods.
  • Girlfriend Package is the best package, but you must fear of being cancelled if you don’t have a driving record that adheres to the insurers standards.

It’s not the packages that are so important, but why a woman would allow her relationship to be placed in such a box. The woman who was in the talking package stated, “I knew what package I signed up for, but even since we were intimate, I thought we could be more.”

So if your man acted more like your relationship was insurance company, what benefits would he need to give in order to avoid switching to another insurance company?

I appreciate your comments to the iLoveStrong Question of the Day!
