Women More than Men Are Jealous of Attractive Colleagues

By Margarita Nahapetyan Women in the workplace are more jealous and envious than men if the colleagues around them are attractive, finds a new international study. However, both men and women are equally jealous of co-workers who have strong social skills. To come up with such a conclusion, researchers from the Universities of Valencia (Spain), Groningen (the Netherlands) and Palermo (Argentina), first involved 200 workers and scienti

Infidelity

Excerpted from The Divorce Remedy: The Proven 7-Step Program for Saving Your Marriage By Michele Weiner Davis It's been estimated that 20 percent of married women and 37 percent of married men have been unfaithful to their spouses.

The Secret Lives of Suburban Wives

Excerpted from To Love, Honor and Betray; The Secret Lives of Suburban Wives By Stephanie Gertler, Adrienne Lopez To Love, Honor, and Betray was conceived one night as we sat at a local haunt in our Westchester, New York, suburb. We were sipping Cosmopolitans and talking about marriage and how few really good marriages we know-and wondering if the ones that appear to be "good" in fact are. We remarked on how many of the women we know are dissatisfied, disappointed, and

Shaping Your Mate

By Bob Grant, L.P.C. Some years ago, while building my counseling practice, I was constantly looking for the most effective strategies for my clients. The theories in Graduate School were very interesting, but I also yearned for the practical applications. Something they could take home with them. Particularly with couples. By the time they came into my office they were usually at their wits end. Before we could explore the depth of their conflict and pain I needed something which would giv

Women Are from Venus, Men Are from Hunger

Excerpted from Life is Not a Stress Rehearsal: Bringing Yesterday's Sane Wisdom Into Today's Insane World By Loretta Laroche Men Don't Ask for Directions Of course not. If a man stops to ask for directions, the animal he's stalking will kill him. Not to mention that it is a clear indication that he is out of control and needs help. It literally forces him to make the admission, perhaps to another male, that "I'm lost." What could be farther from

Identity in Crisis: The Power of a Praying Man

Excerpted from In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man: The One God Approves and a Woman Wants By Michelle McKinney Hammond Several years ago I worked for my cousin, who was a bishop from Africa. He was a great man of prayer who spent hours in the presence of God daily. I knew he had Gods ear. When I had a need, I was quick to ask him to pray for me. When we traveled, sometimes upsetting circumstances would arise, but I always knew things would work out because I was with a ma

Excerpted from The Highly Sensitive Person in Love: Understanding and Managing Relationships When the World Overwhelms You By Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D. "I fall in love so damn hard."

Intimacy, Coupleship; How to Build a Relationship

Excerpted from Coupleship; How to Build a Relationship By Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse To cheat oneself out of love is the most terrible deception, it is an eternal loss for which there is no reparation, either in time or in eternity. - Kierkegaard You can only give away what you have. That is the miracle of intimacy and that is the hope of every close relationship. If you have love and the ability to be intimate, you can give it away. If you don't

Characteristics of Destructive Relationships

Excerpted from Addictive Relationships; Reclaiming Your Boundaries By Joy Miller A. "if I Tell Him I Love Him, He Will Change" (Tunnel Vision) Our destructive relationship is like traveling through a long airtight grey tunnel interspersed with a few brilliant specks of bright light.

Friendship Between Men and Women Often Involves Attraction

By Margarita Nahapetyan It has been known for a long time that men and women can be good friends.

The investigators from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire decided to analyze the platonic, opposite-gender friendship relationships in order to fin

The betrayed part starts wondering what to do after, whether she/he should stay or go, or ask another part to leave. Feelings of anger, rage, hurt, sadness, disbelief and disappointment become predominating. Bringing up suspicions of infidelity shou

Men Are More Sensitive than Women when Having Relationship Problems

By Margarita Nahapetyan The common belief that women are more vulnerable when it comes to emotional ups and downs of romantic relationships has been challenged in a study from Wake Forest University.

This is what psychologists call relationship-contingent self-esteem (RCSE) and, according to University of Houston scientists, this unhealthy factor can cause uncomfortable situations that do more harm than good in romantic relationships.

By Margarita Nahapetyan Men who are unfaithful to their wives do not just jeopardize their marriage, but are also at an increased risk of having a deadly heart attack, Italian scientists who were studying male monogamy have found.

Maintaining A Strong Relationship

By Margarita Nahapetyan Every relationship is unique, complex and multi-dimensional, and every person has his own way of understanding and feeling if a relationship is or is not right for him. Most of us want to fall in love, be in love and stay in love forever. We want just to put ourselves to the hands of the loved one in the hope that the relationship will provide all our happiness. We even think that our partner is supposed to know exactly what, when and

Life in the Comfort Zone - Relationships Boundaries

Excerpted from Living in the Comfort Zone; The Gift of Boundaries in Relationships By Rokelle Lerner Few of us in our western culture know where our comfort zone is. Indeed, what it is probably provokes some confusion. We are raised to live the American Way, the way of the warrior, the pioneer, the manifest entrepreneur. This has served us well for centuries! To go where no one has gone before, to paraphrase Star Trek, helped our foreparents to stretch beyond their limi
