What did I do?

  Every time I gave Cristiane the silent treatment, it was because I didn’t know how to deal with the anger over something she’d done. Something that would’ve really helped me in those moments was Cristiane asking, “What did I do that upset you?” It wouldn’t change how I dealt with anger (something I only resolved […]

Success in career vs. Success in love

  Nowadays women are prepared to be independent, which is excellent for their careers, but in some cases, FATAL for their relationships. Men are simple to love. All we want is a woman who is pleasant. A woman who takes care of her husband, treats him with respect and is his companion. We don’t resent […]

Proactive Partner vs. Passive Partner

  With most couples, one is usually the proactive and the other is the passive. A passive partner’s complacency and delay in making decisions/taking action frustrate a proactive one.

To love is a choice, a decision that does not depend on external pressure. I can’t love someone if I don’t have a choice. To love is to be able to choose any other person I want and yet decide to be with only one; it’s to be free to do whatever I want and […]

A woman’s femininity will not disregard her intelligence, rationality and ability to argue valid opinions. In a bulletproof marriage, a STRONG wife is a valuable asset for her husband. She can […]

The 2nd Rule to Successful Communication

  Pay close attention to the signs you send without saying a word. During a conversation, it’s very common for either partner to fold their arms and say, “Go on, tell me what’s bothering you,” but they’re actually saying, “I’d rather be anywhere else than to have this conversation;” all this can be said without […]

The 1st Rule to Successful Communication

  Make an effort to listen and understand each other. You’ll never be able to communicate intelligently without first understanding what the other person wants to say. This is harder than it looks. Not everyone expresses themselves clearly, and sometimes our negative feelings give a different connotation to our words. Stop. Listen. Do not interrupt […]

Love and fashion

  I COME from a place and a time where people used things until they were completely worn out. Everything was expensive, rare and acquired with difficulty. Because of that, things were well taken care of and much valued. Nowadays, people use them only while that FASHION TREND lasts, which is a small fraction of […]

To those who don’t believe in love anymore

  Not believing in love is the same as not believing in God, for God is love. A person who doesn’t believe in love can consider himself an atheist. Just as most atheists do not believe because of disappointment, those who don’t believe in love do so because they’ve never experienced love or have had […]
