10 Signs You’re Emotionally Ready for a Relationship
The first date’s gone well. You get to know each other, and you like the person. You may be met their friends and…
It’s interesting that this one came up for me today as I’ve actually been pondering this exact thing: am I truly ready to be serious and join my life with someone else and take the plunge into deeper things than date nights and nice chats? I’m happy to say that much of what Olivia Anderson says here mirrored my own self-assessment, and it’s nice to have that confirmation. Do you feel that her list is on-point? I certainly do.
No, Men Aren’t Hypersexual Machines Who Want it All the Time
We’re more than just a body and unending desire
Following up Olivia’s article, it’s important to actually understand the needs and desires of your potential partner rather than falling prey to media myths. Joe Duncan smacks down the idea that men are constantly in the mood, or that they get into relationships solely for the sex; as my partner put it, “shockingly, it’s not what I’m thinking about all the time, I’m usually just thinking about boring stuff.” I really appreciated how Joe goes into the biochemistry and neurobiology of sexual appetite, balanced with a first-person perspective of what that actually means in real life. Well done!
