A MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR:
Men vs Women in Forgiveness
"Why are the men forgiven and the women aren't?" A classic Toni Braxton song that asks a legitimate question. When men cheat, women are 9 times out of 10 going to forgive them. However, when women cheat men are 3 times out of 10 going to forgive them.
If you are tired of making all of the date night decisions and the only one who will show any initiative in picking a spot, here's the perfect date for you.
Send your boo an invitation for a date via text or email. Create the options in a multiple choice format so they have to make the decisions for once. Something like this:
Let's go out for dinner on:
At this location:
___ The Cheesecake Factory
___ BoneFish Grill
___ Any steak house
___ Going to movie theater
___ A jazz concert
___ An air hockey competition at the arcade
___ Any dessert shop
Give them a deadline and have them choose a pick-up time as well. This will ensure you are not the only one who always has to come up with plans.

Learning To Pack Lightly
by guest author Michael Webb
Athena and I love to travel. We began traveling on our honeymoon and have been globetrotting ever since. We soon realized that there was a lot of things that we were taking along that we thought would enhance our trip, but in reality, the weight of the unnecessary items put a burden on us. The extra weight limited our enjoyment of our trip.
When we took a two-week tour through Europe, all we carried was a knapsack each. The minimal luggage allowed us to see and do more in two weeks than what many people can do in two months.
I think we all have to ask ourselves what kind of excess baggage are we maintaining in our relationship that might be weighing it down.
Here are just a few superfluous bags that might be keeping your relationship from being truly blissful.
# Not forgiving your mate of a wrong they did in the past # Still worrying over your sweetheart's attachment to old boyfriends/girlfriends # Getting all bent out shape over silly little habits that your spouse has # Not sharing your emotions for fear of getting hurt or rejected
These are just a few of the bags that people tend to hold onto in their relationships. They want them there “just in case.” They want to be able to say “I told you so” or they like to drag out those old dusty bags to use as ammunition in arguments.
But it is hard to really embrace each other when you are juggling two Samsonite suitcases, a laptop computer, a purse, umbrella and a duffel bag.
Come up with your own list of “baggage” that you might have in your relationship. Discuss the list with your significant other and then ceremoniously burn the list to indicate that you are no longer going to carry those heavy bags.
If you haven't experienced the freedom of traveling lightly, physically and in relationships, give it a try. You will wonder why you didn't do it sooner.
