Good Relationships


Good Relationships



Since I had two posts awhile back in regards to unhealthy relationships and sexual ignorance I thought that perhaps I should focus on the positive this time around for this entry.

In my experience and opinion the key factors to a healthy relationship are grounded in a few simple principles. This list is in no particular order of importance as each every point is as important as the others just as it is far from a complete list.

  • Mutual Respect.
  • A sense of identity that is not centered around their partner and/or relationship.
  • A balance that gives equal importance to time spent as a couple as well as time spent apart pursing self interests.
  • Mutual trust
  • A firm foundation in friendship.
  • Mutual support.
  • Communication that involves both listening and voicing concerns and input.
  • An understanding that rough patches are common and working together to get through them.
  • A relationship that is free from manipulation, abuse, jealousy, demeaning and belittling words and attitude, and selfish pursuits.
  • A relationship where both partners have equal footing.
  • Understanding that there will be differences in interests, beliefs, views etc. Embrace these differences rather than exploit them.

Too often people ignore what makes a relationship healthy and settle for something else just to have a sense of belonging, love or a sense of self. These people often don't know any better or are so afraid of being alone that they settle for something far less and end up unhappy and bitter. Personally I can not comprehend how any one could subject themselves to such negativity just to feel a false sense of belonging or being loved.

Pink Cherry Review

Better, more detailed and 100% accurate as to my experience with the company!
First off let me begin by stating that I live in the United States and that Pink Cherry is a Canadian based company. At first I was slightly hesitant to order from them, my main issue was shipping. I was afraid that it would take a long time to receive my package and/or that the free shipping offer was not valid on orders destined to the US. Well my fears were not justified. I have ordered from them a total of three times so far and each time I have received my order within a week. I also was able to receive free shipping on all orders for ordering over a certain amount. But more on all that later.

Adam&Eve Big O Kit of Disappointment

Adam and Eve Big O Kit
I had been seeing the promotion circulating for some time now. One simply had to enter the code DOLL and they received 50% off a single item in their cart, free shipping and also received a free Big O kit. After doing a little digging-not that much mind you- I couldn't find out any details as to what this mystery Big O kit actually contained. I figured that since I was doing an order anyways what the hell it's free. So I clicked the little box's that said send me my free kit which is valued at $29.95 and my other free mystery gift valued at $9.95.

Review: Fun Factory Tiger

Fun Factory Tiger
*****

I am enamored with Fun Factory. Maybe it is because they are a German company (I have thing for Germans and Germany in general) Or maybe it is because of the quality of their products which never disappoint.
