Is Your Relationship in a Rut and You’re Not Feeling the love Anymore?
Is your relationship in a rut and you’re not feeling the love anymore, like you once did for your partner? You know you love them but life with them has become ho hum and boring?
Do you find yourself going to functions alone because your partner just isn’t into that kind of thing anymore? Did you used to enjoy everything together but now you find that you or your partner don’t enjoy doing those same things anymore?
Are you starting to feel like a wall is being built between you and your partner?
We all change with time, and we can’t help that, that’s what living life does to people, but there are several things we can do to put the fun and romance back into our relationship when things become boring. The following are a few things I have found helpful when your relationship is in a rut and you’re not feeling the love anymore!
I know you’ve heard me say it over and over but I truly believe in date night. Making it special can bring all those romantic feelings back into full swing. Sometimes it may take a few dates to dig up those feelings especially if they have been laying dormant for a long time. Date night can be one of the easiest things to do to get your partner back into your relationship.
It’s recommended to have a date night every two weeks or once a month if that’s all the time you have. I found an e-book that offers 300 ideas that are in between the $5-$20 range. So they are perfect for people on a tight budget. I also like this e-book because not only do you get 300 Creative Dates to Impress Your Date you also get 8 ways to ask someone out, 20 date night coupon ideas, a 100 page e-book on the do’s and don’ts of dating and 14 dating disaster stories that are invaluable and may save yours from becoming one!
Spend Time Making Love
Women are different than men when it comes to making love. You can just mention it to a man and he’s running through the house taking off his clothes and diving into bed. Women need to feel a connection to their partner to even get close to a thought about it. They have to be in the right mind set to let themselves go and surrender to their partner. So if you want to start feeling the love again you have to spend the time getting your lady ready to open up and relax into making love.
As far as the mindset goes I have found a guy whose Female Orgasm Blueprint teaches a technique for getting any woman into the right mindset for making love. It’s worth the cost of his whole program that shows you how to give your lady squirting orgasms, by the way, just to know this one mind control technique. He also has a free video on how to find and stroke the G-Spot so you can give your lady an all over body, mind blowing, squirting orgasm. If she’s never squirted before or you don’t know how to make a woman squirt, this is the program for you!
Talk About Your Feelings
Sometimes things happen in a relationship that tears it down. Being aware of the problems that arise and talking them out as they happen will make your relationship stronger. Notice I say talking, not hollering, arguing?
Also see the article Trust Builds Strong Lasting Relationships. A relationship built on a strong foundation will stand against any adversity thrown it’s way. So if you have any issues that are causing resentment or hurt you need to talk them out until you both feel better about them or they will eventually eat away at the foundation of your relationship and cause it to be become weak.
A strong relationship can still get boring so finding ways to help it stay exciting is imperative to it’s survival. You can get 101 Romantic Ideas free when you sign up for Questions For Couples. This site is chuck full of romantic ideas, so take a look around and I hope you find something that will help your relationship when you’re not feeling the love anymore. I hope you get the love back for each other that you once shared and learn how to keep the love flowing throughout your lifetime together.

How To Get Over A Break Up
Breaking up is so hard to do, but getting over a break up is even harder. When a relationship is in trouble and you’ve tried everything you know how to do to get it back, but it ends despite all the things you’ve tried, it can be devastating. So finding everything you can about how to get over a break up and get your life back on track is a smart thing to do.
No matter what you may be feeling right now, time marches on, with or without you. Pretty harsh words for someone who is in such an emotional state right now, I know, sorry, but I’m not here to sugar coat anything! I don’t think it helps anybody or anything in the end and I want to help you get your life back together and help you figure out how to get over a break up.
Self Confidence And Determination
Sometimes showing how strong we are makes us look sexier and if you are looking to get your ex back, this can only be a good thing. Men especially like women who have self confidence and determination. Taking care of yourself by eating right and exercising is exactly what your mind and body need to recuperate from a break up. I know the appetite is pretty much non existent when you are getting over an ex. So, when you exercise you build the appetite and keep your mind busy. Exercise is one of the best things a person can do when getting over a break up.
Giving yourself time to grieve for the loss of the relationship is an important step in the healing process. If you feel like crying, you should but make sure you don’t spend too much time crying. Too much crying can easily turn into self pity and make you a bitter person. Bitter people just come across as nasty, hateful and unloving, this is not what you want your ex or anyone else to see.
Forgiveness is key when it comes to how to get over a break up and most people don’t get it’s importance. You see when you don’t forgive you are holding hurt and anger in your body and every time you think of that person, you feel that same hurt and anger. That is no good for your mind and body and healing it after a devastating break up. When that person can cause these feelings, who is winning? They are! Because they are able to make you feel bad! Being able to forgive someone for the hurt and anger of a lost relationship is fundamental to your own healing. So forgive them for yourself, not them!
I’m not saying you have to be sweet and kind, but you should be able to be civil especially when there is children involved. Being able to communicate with your ex about the care of your children should be the first consideration for every couple with kids. Parents who use their kids against each other are only hurting their children, so please for the kids sake, make a concerted effort to raise them with love, kindness and respect. Remember, children learn what they live, so if they see hostility they have hostility, if they see parents that make a concerted effort to love them and provide for them even if they aren’t together teaches them how to love and respect all relationships and don’t we all want the best for our children?
Nobody wants to think they are responsible for causing their relationship to break up. Well, I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but….you are responsible! You are both responsible for interacting with each other in your relationship. You know that old saying, “It takes two to tangle”, is never anymore truer than when a relationship fails. Try to find what you could have done differently and learn from it.
Maybe you shouldn’t have been argumentative, or drink so much, or cursed at them when you got mad or maybe you just clam up and won’t let out how you’re feeling. When you are trying to figure out what you could have done better, or differently, you should take a good honest look at your behavior. This can only help you have a better relationship when you finally decide to enter into a new relationship with someone else.
Have you made your partner the center of your universe and now you don’t know how to have a different life without them? I’m guilty of this one and it’s so easy for women to do more than men because we are more emotional than men. Women can become so caught up in their kids and husbands needs and just everyday life they actually neglect themselves and when their relationship falls apart they have nothing left.
Me with long time friends
It’s very imperative to have friends and family that you can do things with without your partner. Not only does this give you enjoyment, it shows your partner you are a person also and if a break up does happen you have a support group and a life where you are front and center. Don’t worry if you have neglected your friends. True friends will always be there for you, so reach out to them and start living a new life for yourself and discover how to get over a break up.
Are You Still Waiting For A Proposal
Are you one of the guys or gals that have been in a long time relationship without a proposal in sight? You think you’ve found the perfect one that completes you and you’ve thrown everything you have into them? They have become your life and you would be lost without them, but…are you still waiting for a proposal?
I’ve been there and this is my story:
I dated my current husband for a year before we moved in together. I met him exactly 30 days after signing separation papers for a divorce from my ex husband so I wasn’t in any hurry to rush into another marriage, so living together for a while suited me just fine. We had been living together for 4 years when I turned 29. I began hearing my biological clock ticking pretty loudly in my head and that can only mean one thing…a baby!
The first time my live in boyfriend, Kenny, who is my husband now, heard me say anything about a baby, I knew convincing him of it wasn’t going to be easy. Our friends had just had a baby girl and we were visiting them in the hospital maternity ward. My friend placed her precious little bundle in my arms and as I looked down into that sweet little face and smelled her baby powder and lotion I exclaimed without thinking, “I want one!” Well the look on Kenny’s face as he staggered back a few steps and looked at me with eyes as big as saucers told me everything I needed to know! This was going to take some work!
As soon as we were in the car leaving the hospital he gently says to me, “Lets not put the cart before the horse, especially when we aren’t even ready to buy the horse yet!” So the first marriage conversation began and it was plain he hadn’t even thought about proposing, much less marriage.
I was sunk. I realized I had spent 5 years making this man the center of my life and he wasn’t even worried about keeping me in his. That’s when I knew I wasn’t going to wait forever and I started changing how the game had been played. I wasn’t going to be the cute little cheerleader anymore, I was the player with the ball running for a touchdown, even when I got tackled every now and then, I’d get right back up and start running again.
You see nothing changes unless you change it. When you start changing yourself, it changes the whole relationship because you are interacting differently inside the relationship. When one person changes, the relationship has no other choice, except to change.
Change doesn’t have to be harsh, it should be suttle but attention grabbing. This is what I did. I started spending more time with friends and leaving him to get his own dinner a couple times a week. I didn’t spend my days off of work, which were sometimes during the week, cleaning the house like I normally did. I went out with friends and had fun, I even went out of my way to talk more to men than woman in front of him. Never flirting but just being inquisitive, I know that got his attention a few times because he would say little things like, “Well, do you know Nick’s whole life story now?” I would just smile to myself and say something like, “He’s a very interesting guy, but not as interesting as you!”
He noticed the change pretty quickly and realized he wasn’t the center of my world anymore. He realized I didn’t need him to make my life complete, I could do that all by myself. He came around pretty quickly and started talking about having a baby and what they would look like. Which was a complete and total turn around from the visit at the hospital a few months earlier.
Then one day he asked if I still wanted a baby and I said, “Of course, but I want to be married first, so I’d really like to know if I’m wasting my time waiting for a proposal from you?” He said, “What do you mean, wasting your time?” Men! Even when you’re blunt and to the point if they don’t want to understand, they just aren’t going to!
I remember telling him, “I’m not going to waste my time waiting for a proposal, I’m a good woman and I will make a great wife and mother and that is what I want, so I guess you need to decide what you want and we’ll figure out the rest from there!” Then I left to go see a movie with a few friends. I left him looking like he’d been run over by a mack truck!
I just didn’t get it at the time but I’ve studied men and women in relationships since then and I get it now. At least for my husbands type. He’s the type that hates to make major decisions. As long as everything is going along just fine, he sees no reason to change it. Well we were engaged within a month of that conversation and married within 6 months. We have been together for 24 years and married 19 of them. We have a 17 year old son who is our pride and joy.
Are you still waiting for a proposal? What type of man or woman do you have? Do they like that you are chasing them and that you are still waiting no matter how long it takes? The technique I used to get a proposal could be used for this type of person and any other type for that matter. You see when you start putting yourself in the center of your world they will see you in a totally different way. Sometimes it has a dramatic effect and get’s that ring on your finger quickly.
You may discover that you have more fun being alone and with friends than you do with your partner. You have saved yourself and your partner a lot of heartache and lawyer bills. Discovering who you are without your partner is key and it will also show your partner, you’re not going to wait forever and just may make you extremely sexy.
Sometimes, just openly giving your partner an ultimatum, like I did, can backfire and they will walk right out of your life. So making suttle changes and putting yourself first instead of them is probably best. If they do walk out, you have already made yourself the center of your world, so you won’t be totally devastated. Realize they weren’t meant for you and it’s better to be let down now rather than wasting any more precious time waiting for a proposal that you will never get.
If they try to control you and demand that you make them the only thing you care about and do anything for, then you really need to know this before you marry them anyways. You want a loving, fulfilling marriage with mutual respect for each other, not one where you do everything for your partner and get nothing in return except blessed by their pressence. Realize you are your own person and no one controls you except yourself and you will make a wise choice in a spouse.
Relationship Problems Can Be Overcome
More relationship problems can be overcome when you equip yourself with the right tools to fix them. Let’s talk about some common relationship problems and how to overcome them for a blissful life together.
Ugh! I hate them, but they happen in even the best of marriages. We need to realize we are each individuals with our own thoughts and minds so it’s only normal that we don’t see eye to eye on every issue we encounter. Have you ever noticed that most arguments are silly? Sometimes you start out arguing about one thing and end up arguing about something else.
Before my husband and I started using the Magic Relationship Words we argued a lot. We had very poor communication skills. So if you find yourself arguing often get the Magic Relationship Words and incorporate them into the way you communicate with your partner, they really work.
There is one thing you can do to stop arguments in their tracks and that is to step back and try to look at the problem through your partners eyes. Trying to see things the way they see them may give you more understanding of how they are feeling. You just may discover that they are tired, depressed, overwhelmed or even feeling used and unloved.
Arguments are a way for people to act out on their feelings, but they only add more stress. Learning how to communicate your feelings in a constructive way will almost always stop an argument from happening. So before you lash out the next time, stop to think about how you’re feeling before talking.
Woman normally don’t know why they are grouchy with all the hormonal changes they experience, but it’s still no excuse for being mean and nasty. So just remember when you give respect, you get respect.
How many couples have you ever met that have taken a sex education class? I would say at least 50% of couples are sorely lacking in knowledge of their partners sexual parts and how to make them have an orgasm. That is a lot of sexually dissatisfied couples. The fact is 80% of woman never orgasm during intercourse. This fact is just plain sad. If you are in a relationship like this, check out what Jason has to show you. It’s all very tastefully done and is not porn. It’s actually a program on how to give a female squirting orgasms. It’s a teaching program called The Female Orgasm Blueprint, that explains it all from the mind to the behind…hahaha…I just made a funny!
On the other hand you may be having trouble with erectile dysfunction and feel ashamed of it. You shouldn’t be, it is a very common medical problem that they are finding more and more information about. A counselor for sexual dysfunctions may be a wise thing to look into, but you both have to be willing to do the work that’s required. I know of one such program that is teaching exercises and mental practises to help. Also see the article Erectile Dysfunction In A Relationship for more information about this relationship problem.
Affairs are the worst thing, I think, that can happen in a relationship and the hardest to overcome. But they really can make a relationship much stronger in the long run. The key is to learn how to reset time to a much better time in your life. T Dubb teaches such a technique in the Magic Of Making Up program. It’s a very strong technique that he really doens’t like to include in his program because it can be used for good or bad, so use it wisely and give your relationship a fresh start.
Remember affairs are not just the problem of the partner who has committed it. If your partner has stepped out. try to think about what may have been a contributing factor. Are you hard to get along with? Maybe you aren’t affectionate enough or have lost that loving feeling. Are you ill-tempered or degrading. Listen to your partner while they talk about their feelings. You just may discover the underlying cause of the affair. Remember it takes two to tangle.
These are just a few of the main problems that many couples face but when you can face them together and head on you will beat them and your relationship problems can be overcome.
Stop Arguments Before They Start
Think back to the time in your relationship when it was brand new before you had your first argument. Man, wasn’t that an awesome time? Do you wish you could turn back the hands of time and never argue again? Did you know there are 8 little words that stop arguments before they start?
We’ve all been in situations when we’ve opened our mouths and promptly inserted our foot, simultaneously asking ourselves, “Why did I say that?” or think to ourselves, “Man, that really came out wrong!” and the only thing you did was add fuel to the fire and escalate the argument to a blazing fire that’s out of control.
I know plenty of times I’ve been at a loss as to what to say so I said nothing at all. Things that go unsaid are worse because when things are left to fester, resentment builds until it all comes to a head like a pimple that needs squeezed to relieve the pressure.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know what to say during any confrontation or conversation?
Have you ever ruined a relationship because you didn’t know what to say or said it in the wrong way? God knows I’ve even found myself starting arguments without even realizing I was doing it…jeesh!
We all want to feel wanted, loved, appreciated and most of all understood but sometimes we just don’t know how to express how we are feeling without making our partner feel like it’s their fault. Thus the big argument ensues and helps nothing and leaves you feeling even more disconnected from your partner than ever before.
Certainly pure attraction and love for each other is extremely important but if you don’t have effective communication those ingredients are only going to last for so long. After having your feelings hurt and feeling misunderstood for any length of time, love and attraction will die and the relationship will end. Having effective communication is one of the biggest role players in any successful relationship.
The words we use and the way in which we say them to each other MATTER!
Let’s face it words can make or break a relationship, so knowing the right words to stop arguments before they start is the best investment you can make in your life together. Knowing the right words to say that will cause harmony, peace and stronger connections in your relationship are just as important as being able to stop arguments before they start.

A masterful blow job can destroy relationships when they are performed by someone other than your partner. But when your partner performs them they can completely bond them to you. It’s true, fellatio makes men bond to you by releasing oxytocin which gives your man a sexual high that becomes addicting and completely bonds them to you.
Did you know that 40% of men leave their partner because of bad or nonexistence fellatio? You don’t want to worry about your man leaving you because he’s not getting oral sex. Most men think women know how they love blow jobs and that they have to tell you that.

A man will become romantically, emotionally and physically joined to someone who makes the sex part of his brain “fire”. It’s more than a sexual act it’s a chemical bonding.

There are also at least 5 things you should do before going down on your man that will increase the chances of making him erupt like a volcano.

Saving A Marriage
Many couples go through very challenging periods of time when they start wondering what can be done with regards to saving a marriage. Perhaps that is happening to you and you are desperately looking for some advice. While there are no simple answers, and each situation and marriage is different, the following are two things you can consider changing if your marriage is in crisis. While they might seem simplistic on the surface, even small changes can make a big difference when it comes to saving a marriage.
Not Showing Appreciation For Your Spouse
Sometimes we get so caught up in the busy-ness of our day to day lives that we forget to appreciate the things which are really important to us. This happens frequently in marriages, especially when two people have been together a long time. One or both people in the marriage fail to recognize just how lucky they really are to have each other until one ends up leaving or a tragedy happens. Sadly, saving a marriage at that point is going to be much more difficult than if this problem is detected and dealt with early on.
Take some time to consider whether or not you are doing this in your marriage. We all long to feel important, valued, and loved. A healthy marriage meets those needs to a significant degree. But if you take your spouse for granted and fail to acknowledge all the wonderful things he or she does, then this may be a contributing factor to your current crisis. Start paying attention to all the things your spouse does for you, as well as all his or her wonderful qualities. Show gratitude and appreciation. Doing this can go a long way towards saving a marriage which is on the brink of falling apart.
Failing To Communicate
All relationships require quality communication in order to be healthy or to get back on track when there is a crisis. Many couples fail to really talk openly to each other. Women often make the mistake of presuming their husband can read their mind. Men often try to avoid challenging conversations which feel uncomfortable for them. Over time, a lot of issues which need to be dealt with get swept under the rug but start to fester.
If saving a marriage is truly important to you, it is imperative that you start working on your communication skills with your spouse first. If you grew up in a home in which your parents didn’t really talk to each other, this may be particularly difficult for you. But you can start by being the one to initiate more frequent and open conversations. With practice and effort, you and your spouse can become much more skilled communicators.
Set Some Ground Rules
Sometimes in order for communication to go smoothly, you need to set some ground rules. For example, a good ground rule is that either of you can indicate when you need a “time out”. Sometimes a discussion can start to get heated and if one of you feels you might say something you will regret, this is the perfect time to step away from the conversation for a short while. You can resume talking later when both of you are calmer.
Showing appreciation and learning to communicate well are two significant steps towards saving a marriage which is struggling or in a crisis. Make the changes in yourself first. This will show your spouse how much you truly care and how important he or she is to you.
Secrets To Healthy Relationships
Have you ever seen a couple who have been together for a very long time still completely in love with each other? That’s a hard one to answer, isn’t it? I have to really think about it and the closest relationship I’ve seen like that would have to have been my Uncle and Aunt. I don’t think I ever seen them argue, and they were always smiling at each other. They never had children, turns out she couldn’t have any because of a childhood disease that had left her barren. It never seemed to bother them at all, though.
If there is secrets to healthy relationships they definitely knew them. Love relationships are hard because it takes two separate people to make one. We all know we are different, that’s just how God made us. Thank goodness, could you imagine what a boring place we would live in if we all thought and acted the same.
You already know if you are one of my readers that I put respect for each other among one of the biggest and best things a relationship shares. When you respect your partner there is nothing you are going to do or say to destroy it. Respect builds strong foundations and nothing can destroy a relationship built on it.
Well, once again, my friend Michael has written another book called, “50 Secrets Of Blissful Relationships”. In it he tells the secrets to healthy relationships and how he has never had a fight with his wife in 21 years of marriage. The one thing I learned about Micheal is that he grew up around all types of dysfunctional relationships. Each of his parents have been married 3 times and his Grandfather was married 5 or 6 times and with a myriad of different women in his life.
Micheal grew up with 6 sisters and seen them treated horrible by the men in their lives and this is what made him determined to be the kind of husband his Mom and sisters had dreamed of but never had. I guess we should thank them for making him into what he is today, and for sharing his secrets to healthy relationships with us.
Having a good, healthy relationship affects everything in your life. If your relationship is a healthy one, you will have healthy relationships with co-workers and everybody else around. An unhealthy relationship sucks the energy from you and will eventually ruin friendships, work relationship and even family relationships. If you see an unhappy person, the unhappiness is more than likely due to an unhealthy love relationship.
Okay, so let’s talk about his book and what you are going to find under it’s cover:
- Learn how to stop fighting
- 3 strategies to stop money issues from hurting your relationship
- Learn how to discuss your partners shortcomings without hurting their feelings
- 8 ways to handle arguments without hurting anyone’s feelings
- How to have a happy relationship with someone of a different religion
- Learn the one thing that keeps marriages together

Of course that is just a few of the secrets to healthy relationships you’ll learn, and Micheal is slashing his price in half just because he loves me and my readers, but it’s only for this week, unless I can sweet talk him some more. But I don’t expect the price will stay so low for much longer than a week, especially after the other great bonuses he throws in every time I ask him for something special for you. Micheal has got to have the biggest heart I’ve ever seen, he’s one of kind.
Here is the bonuses you’ll get, besides having the price cut in half for a solid week, when you get his book 50 Secrets Of Blissful Relationships.

There are so many proposal ideas floating around and finding one that will get a “yes, I’ll marry you” and have your lady crying with happiness might be a lot harder to find. You’re going to spend a small fortune on a ring so why wouldn’t you find the very best way to propose too?
You should only have to propose once in your life, so taking the time to make it awesome and to have them telling everybody they know how you proposed to them, is priceless. I have never forgotten how my husband proposed and the song that was playing when he asked me.
He asked me to sit down on our couch and he knelt in front of me. He said, “Rhonda, I love you more than life itself and you have made me the happiest man on earth during these 5 years we’ve been together. I can’t imagine my life without you, will you marry me?” Bon Jovi’s, Keep The Faith was playing in the background and it was a magical time. Of course I said “yes”. We have been married for 19 years now and been together for 24. Time has flown but I have never forgotten what he said, the song that was playing and where we were when he asked me to be his wife.
I definitely think it could have been plenty more romantic, but I wouldn’t change it. It’s my memory and I’ll keep it forever tucked away in my heart. So, thinking about the way I was proposed to compared to the many ways I’ve read about made me think about finding the best romantic proposal ideas for my readers to use. After all it’s a once in a lifetime thing, hopefully, so you deserve to have the best ideas for making your proposal the best of anyone’s you know.
Of course you know I love Oprah’s love expert, Micheal Webb and he has written an e-book called, “The Romantic’s Guide To Popping The Question” that he put together after running a contest for the most romantic, creative and unique wedding proposals. He received 7,329 different ideas that people from all over the world sent him trying to win the contest. He went through them all, one by one, and found 101 of the most awe-inspiring and mind blowing marriage proposal ideas that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. That’s a pretty big claim but he nails it, hands down.

Are You To Blame For Your Relationship Failing?
Wondering are you to blame for your relationship failing is a normal thing to do. Taking a good honest look at how you have contributed to the dynamics of the relationship could help you in future ones. Relationship failure is seldom ever one persons fault, so don’t be too hard on yourself. It could just be that it never really had a strong foundation or just wasn’t meant to be.
Asking yourself, “Are you to blame for your relationship failing”, is a very wise thing to do. Especially if all your relationships are rocky and eventually fail. People tend to blame other people for all their problems instead of realizing we all make our lives what they are. Some people make a hard life and some people make an easy life. That includes our relationships and the people we choose to live our lives with.
Go here if you want help understanding the dynamics of a romantic relationship.
Asking yourself, are you to blame for your relationship failing, causes introspection. It could be, you start your relationships with the constant fear of failure. Fear of failure can undermine relationship success. Your thoughts control your actions and when you react out of fear most times you are in self preservation mode, which causes you to inflict harm, kind of like, I’ll get you before you get me.
Relationship failure is, more often than not, a two way street. Even though, it may feel like you’re the victim. Understanding human reaction to hurtful words and events, would help you be more understanding. People argue about things because they don’t see eye to eye on a certain subject, they have been provoked in some way, or they are harbouring resentment about a different issue that has nothing to do with the argument. As you can see, relationships can be very confusing.
Relationship 101 isn’t a subject in school, or a College course. We are taught how to interact in a relationship by the people we watch while growing up. If you grew up in a household where there was love, kindness and respect, you will more than likely have that type of relationship. If you grew up in a house where there was arguing, disrespect and chaos, you will, more than likely, have that type of relationship. Do not let this rule your relationships, you can change yourself and therefore, change what type of relationship you have.
Asking yourself, are you to blame for your relationship failing, shows you are willing to ask yourself the hard questions in order to make your relationships the best they can be. Give yourself credit for that. There is help for people who haven’t had the best examples of how to treat people they love. There are articles, E-books, membership web sites, and forums you can join.
The best help for fixing relationships that I have found on the net is, Magic Of Making Up, an E-book down loadable instantly, and you don’t want to have to wait for help when you are hurting. He gives you tools, not only for helping your relationship, but also for helping yourself with the depression, stress. He also gives you a technique for calming your mind, that I have used under many different circumstances. You can check out his E-book and get the Calm Mind Technique by clicking here!
