Stolid brown rice and peppery lentils hardly sound like stir-fry partners for the bright, fresh flavors and crisp textures of summer. But hey, surprise, it’s a summer romance with chemistry.
Don’t just look at the face, but take the time to really look at the man. You’ll have a better chance at relationship success if you allow the right kind of man to get closer to you.
See guys, just saying those three words sometimes aren’t enough. We want to feel that we’re loved. We want to know it deep down in our guts. Not just because you said it five minutes ago, but because there’s without a doubt, as sure as the sun will rise every morning, that our men love us. Not by what you say but what you do. We want to know we’re appreciated in everything we do because believe it or not most of it is for you. You never know, the more you show us, it might come back to you tenfold.
I originally wrote a vampire novel because I wanted to move out of the city and to do that, I needed a mortgage. I was working in a bookstore at the time and I noticed that vampire readers are incredibly loyal to their genre. They’ll read anything with a set of fangs on the cover in the hope of finding something decent so I thought that if I wrote a good vampire book, I’d have an audience. And I did.
Unfortunately, our culture (movies, songs, romance novels, soap operas, imlive review comedies) teaches us that this is how it’s supposed to be. “Falling in love” is the norm – the implication being, that if it doesn’t happen, or if it goes away, something is wrong – with you, your spouse or the marriage. A good relationship must first unlearn a great deal.
When it comes to sex, men (in general), want one thing; to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible. Well, it is OK to think that way, if you are buying a used car. But your wife or girlfriend is no used car. They are still the same person with the same feelings and emotions that they had when you first met. You need to remind yourself of that fact. It is not that she does not want you anymore, it is just that maybe she is feeling that you do not appreciate her as much as you once did. You can change this.
This Christmas season I’m thinking of giving this gift to many friends and family. I have several family members who are trying to lead a healthier, more productive life and book of the month clubs seem to be a great first step for that journey!
