Communication problems often lead to relationship issues, which is no great surprise. If you can’t communicate with your partner, how can you cultivate a sense of closeness and love?
Still, basic communication challenges often lead to broken relationships. It makes you wonder what everyone’s doing wrong. We’re going to cover five common communication omissions that threaten relationships.
1. Not asking unique, personal questions
“How was your day?”
There’s nothing implicitly wrong with the above question. But, if repeated frequently, it lacks sincerity and shows a lack of effort. Many couples go through the motions of social platitudes because they don’t know what else to say, but this kind of filler talk can be surprisingly devastating. Why? Continue reading
Before you read this, I invite you to read the first post in this series. Don’t skip it. If you don’t read it, I trust you’ll be highly triggered and write me off, call me a bitch, and go along your way. That’s not what I want. That’s not what we want.
What Does It Mean To Be “Consciously Awake”?
Everyone has issues. Men and women both. Humans are imperfect. As a result, we have to deal with and own our shit. We don’t get to throw it onto other people. That’s not what Consciously Awake means. Continue reading
The single hottest thing mine has ever said was the other night- we had both had a couple drinks, getting into bed, getting into heavy petting.
He stops and looks at me and just groaned. I said, – What? Did I hurt you? Are you okay? – He kinda looked at me and said, You have the hottest fucking body on the face of the planet and it’s all I can do not to take you right fucking now. -

– You like it when I fuck you from behind? -or
– You like riding that fucking dick? –
Yes. Yes I do. Continue reading
Whether you’re navigating the trenches of a painful divorce, taking a sex sabbatical or hibernating from love, eventually you will yearn to get back out there and try your heart at love again.
As you pick up the pieces from relationships past, you may find yourself gaining enough courage to start fresh. Welcome to the hopeful next chapter of your love life. Continue reading
Unfortunately, not every man that is qualified to sleep over deserves to graduate into relationship territory. But in the meantime, you shouldnâ€™t feel prisoned to dry spells until Mr. Right comes knocking on your door. Right?
Before diving into any friends-with-benefits arrangement, prepare yourself to set boundaries and cold cut rules in order to keep the sex fling lighthearted and drama-free. Hereâ€™s howâ€¦
1. Stay Busy
Too much free time equals way too much think time. Stay as busy as possible. Get some extra work done after hours, involve yourself with an activity and take all procedures to keep your mind from wandering. We all know what can happen when the sex overpowers. It can handicap our thoughts into believing that our flings could elevate into something deeper. Spend less time thinking and more time doing.
2. Avoid Talking On The Phone
Long live those innocent, teenage high school days, when spending countless hours on the phone was a normal routine. Now there are real consequences that come with that kind of personal one on one time- the consequence being, â€œfeelings.â€
To remain as detached as possible, limit your sex partner to standard texts or even tweets. Keep any phone call brief and to the point. Donâ€™t become too engulfed in his personal life and most importantly, donâ€™t end up being his shoulder to cry on for any reason. Continue reading

1. Did this person listen to me?
Did your date practice active listening or did she turn everything you said back onto her? Did she focus on you and make a conscious effort to not only hear the words that came out of your mouth, but (more importantly) the complete message being sent? …
