LOVE like an Albatross, Larry James

The word 'albatross' is sometimes used metaphorically to mean a psychological burden that feels like a curse. It is an allusion to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" (1798).

Women love surprises. Especially the ones that show that you were thinking about her and that you had to go a little out of your way to make it happen. So... guys! … [Read more...]

The History of the Engagement Ring @ Uma Campbell

“Live your sun, satisfy your moon,” Moods, Feelings, Romance

Continuing on the topic of "Live your sun, satisfy your moon," I thought I'd write about ways people fail to satisfy their moon. The Moon represents your emotional needs.

These women say they are more like a man than a woman. This is quite a feat considering the estrogen in their bodies. Here's an odd … [Read more...]
