Does A Second Date Make Sense?

Wednesday April 23, 2014

How do you know if a second date is a good idea? Is the decision to accept or make a second date truly a gamble? Are there signals that can help make the right choice?

No one wants to waste his or her time on a second date with someone who lacks life partner potential, and over 50's in particular hear the clock ticking.

Does a relationship with a first date seem viable? Is there a sexual attraction? Do you need to go on more than one date to figure it out?

Magic is the key ingredient in nearly all successful relationships. What does it look like? What does it feel like? Is it just the stuff of movies and romance novels?

It's real and it's available to everyone who dates. You just need to know it when you see it.

Read how magic can help you decide if a second date makes sense.

Sex, Trust, Intimacy, And Relationships

Thursday April 17, 2014

Perhaps you think you're having the best sex imaginable simply because you're in a long-term relationship. But that's flawed thinking.

Great sex requires trust and that's true whether the relationship is new or old. Sounds simple, right?

It's actually complex because in new relationships sex is typically hot because of the newness factor, and in older relationships couples tend to fall into comfortable patterns that don't necessarily embody trust and marginal sex becomes normal and acceptable.

Read why trust matters and how to move your relationship into a vulnerable place and ensure sexual passion and satisfaction.

Emotional Honesty Is Critical

Monday April 14, 2014

No relationship can survive without emotional honesty, but practicing it can be perilous if a couple doesn't respect the rules. It's not a simple as telling each other the truth. It's much more complicated than that, but since it's essential for healthy relationships it's worth the effort.

The men who fear being emotionally honest with women base their trepidation on previous experiences. It's a dance that has to be learned and practiced in order for a relationship to move forward.

Sex, trust, and every other aspect of a relationship depend on the existence of emotional honesty.

Great Sex For Men Over 50 Depends On.......

Thursday April 10, 2014

Young men can perform sexually without much stress and strain. But for men over 50 that sexual hat trick becomes more difficult.

Absent the existence of a strong emotional connection with women, sex for men after 50 can be disappointing for them and their partners.

No prescription product can equal the power of emotional intimacy and it's naive to believe a pill can solve a man's sexual issues.

The best power tool for a man over 50 is his heart.
