Would you date someone your friends hate?

Many years ago, I made an epic mistake when I began dating someone my friends hated. But he was good looking, charming and fun so I figured it would be an interesting experience! It certainly was an experience. My friends LOATHED him to the point when they began to distance themselves and even try to do things to come between us. You know what it's like though, the more people try to pull you apart, the closer you get. It all ended quite badly, but even though my friends were adamant that they were right and I was wrong, I would still date someone my friends hated because ultimately, it is my choice (or mistake) to make.

Weight gain - should you mention it?

There are times when I really struggle with my weight. I am not enormously overweight but I am in the middle of a phase where my clothes are beginning to get too tight or - shock horror - not fit at all! That's one of the most obvious signs of weight gain (besides idiots driving past you in a car when you're innocently walking down the street and yelling 'Look at the size of that ass!')

It got me thinking - why did nobody mention I was gaining weight before I got to this point? Perhaps it's because they knew I would be mad - or perhaps they understood it was just....rude to do so.

When you are in a relationship, pointing out your partner's flaws should be done with caution, particularly if it involves weight loss. Take a look at this article for further advice and information about talking about weight. Should You Tell Your Partner They Have Gained Weight?

Definition of Cheating - The Results!

Hey guys! Sorry it has been so long between posts, I was waiting for this article to be published before I updated!

So, a while ago I asked everyone for their definition of cheating. I did this via a poll on this blog and through Facebook. Huge thanks to everyone who participated and helped me out on this. It was fascinating to hear so many different opinions. They were quite varied, though most agreed on the main factors. If you want to take a look and see what was said - and if your comment made it, take a look! The Definition of Cheating in a Relationship

Bring Back the Fun in Your Relationship with Romantic Board Games!

I know, I know. "Romantic" board games are often considered a waste of time and money because of the poorly thought out ideas inside the box - and more often than not, one of the couple playing finds the idea ridiculous and gives up before it has got going.

But take a moment and think again. Adult, or romantic board games are a really good way of remembering how much fun you can have with your partner. In the early stages of a relationship, everything is fun but as time moves on and real life starts to take over, it's easy to forget that in the beginning you were carefree and excited by the simple things.

After some extensive research, I have found some of the best romantic board games available. They are so useful if you feel that the laughter and fizz are beginning to disappear from your relationship. Read on for further info: Romantic Board Games to Help Your Re-Connect With Your Partner
