I used to be the Floyd Mayweather of excuses. I was undefeated. No one could make up an excuse quicker than I could. I would even make up excuses for the excuses in my dating life. My favorite excuse was the ‘busy’ or the ‘a lot of things going on’ excuse. ‘Busy’ was a great excuse because as.

He had more or less settled for his second wife due to having low expectations of marital bliss.

amazingg Well now this is depressing! I agree that women have outlandishly unrealistic expectations for love and relationships. Blame movies, Disney fairy tales, whatever you want but the fact remains that when your expectations don’t line up with reality, severe disappointment is the result.

As April begins, the Full Moon has just occurred in your partnership sector, and feelings have reached a head. In fact, your business acumen is attractive and appealing this month. Money is in good favor as well. You are ambitious but sometimes feel overwhelmed or stressed. Watch for pushing yourself too hard but do put in some real effort now. The key is to be patient and focus on the target. Try not to waste opportunities on battles and frustrations. Saturn and Pluto both turn retrograde this month, and this does mean that while there is a strong focus on your career and reputation, there is some need to review, reflect, and reorganize on these levels.

Mercury ends its retrograde in your sign on the 15th. Regarding work and health, you may be waiting on answers or returning to old problems in the first half of April. In the second half, however, an end is in sight or solutions are found.

This is a period for visions and questions; for believing and daring to experience life. The New Moon on the 18th in Sagittarius gives us more oomph to explore and expand. The Sun enters Capricorn on the 22nd, quickly meeting with Saturn freshly in the sign, and we become far more concerned with the material world. We are primarily goal-oriented now, and all those traits that help us to reach our goals come into sharp focus: Mercury Mercury continues to transit Sagittarius all month.

We are curious, questioning, and brave with our thoughts and ideas during this cycle. Ideals are sought, our thinking is optimistic, and our faith increases. We are more equipped to believe and to persuade during this transit. This can be a time of scattered thoughts and mental disarray, however.

Please help me to get my son away from his uncurable morbid, delusional and insanely jealous girlfriend. It has ruined his life, friendships and ability to earn an income, because he is a tattoo artist and she destroys, in every way, his business relationships with his female customers.

What does respectful living look like? Here are 25 ways you can communicate respect to your spouse without uttering a word. A happy wife makes a happy life. That gets old fast. Even if you think you already know what your husband is going to say, allowing him to say it without cutting him off mid-sentence shows both respect and common courtesy.

Monthly Horoscopes – April 2018

Feb How exactly do you go from dating someone casually to having a serious relationship with them? Is it some secret, LSD fuelled desert ritual? Do you just… ask them? Why Do You Commit? To make yourself a better partner, think about your past relationships. What qualities made you want to get serious with your date?

I have just come across clarification on a statistic I cited in “Can Relationships That Start as Affairs Succeed? ” In that post I stated that 25% of relationships that start as affairs succeed.

Have you found yourself looking back of your relationship and feeling more than a bit galled and bewildered by the type of relationship and behaviour that you have accepted? You know there is something more than a little jacked up about what you have experienced and yet… The self-doubt comes in. Your normal is what you used to think is screwed up.

You have become very good at normalising bad behaviour. This is why they big up themselves and think their crumbs should be more than enough to sustain you. They throw you a crumb but in their eyes, the crumb has become a loaf in the transit. The key is that you have got to stop thinking that because someone has given all that they can give that it makes it enough, or believing that you can continue to put your bucket down in the emotional blackhole well in the hope that on one of the buckets trips, some extra emotion will come out.

You have adapted to the whims and idiosyncrasies each time you have been with these men, so what was abnormal has become totally normal. This is how you end up becoming distanced from yourself and forgetting who you are, what you need, what you want etc. You need to separate yourself from your men and re-establish your identity. More importantly, you have to step back and re-evaluate this relationship thang because trust me, normalising their bad behaviour and moulding, adapting, and accommodating till the cows come home is not working for you.
