So what do these “high quality” men look for? And what can you do, as a woman, to attract him and keep him interested?

7 Signs You’re in a Dead-End Relationship

I truly believe that one of bravest things a person can do is have the courage to admit when they’re in a bad situation, especially a relationship like a marriage. But even for those who haven’t taken wedding vows, sometimes we’re just as committed to the relationship and the person we love.

What Does Your Arguing Style Say About Your Relationship?

According to researchers studying marriage and romantic relationships, the way a couple argues can tell a lot about the future of their relationship. In fact, researchers studying married couples at the University of Washington were able to predict with 91% accuracy whether a couple would stay together or divorce, primarily by analyzing the couple’s communication patterns during a disagreement.

What’s the One Thing Men Value More than Sex?

How many times have we heard the phrase, “All men want is sex?” I don’t claim to know everything about men, but this is one thing I know is not true. Now don’t get me wrong, sex is very important in a relationship and it can even help bring couples closer together, but there’s something that is more important than sex, and it’s something that men have difficulty admitting.

What Really Makes Us Fall in Love?

I recently wrote an article for xoNecole.com called 10 WEIRD Reasons People Fall in Love that You Never Knew which included a list of unsuspecting factors that contribute to people falling in love. Some of these answers included the weather, sex, and asking the right questions.

Are 90s Boy Bands the Origin of Our Attraction to Toxic Relationships?

I read a meme that said, “Your attraction to toxic men began when you chose Jodeci over Boyz II Men.” After laughing out loud, I thought briefly about whether or not this was true. Then I started digging to see if there was something to this idea. The more I researched the more I found that the “good guy” Boyz II Men “image” was just that — an image & the MotownPhilly music group has had their fair share (if not more) of scandals, unfortunately, when it comes to love and relationships.

You may remember how the rumor mill churned with whispers of Wanya Morris and Brandy when she was like 15 and he was something like six years her senior, although Wanya denies dating her while she was underage and she went on to go to prom with Kobe Bryant back in 1996.

Adina Howard, also chimed in on the alleged “love triangle” involving her, Brandy, and Wanya in her Unsung interview and the Brokenhearted singer, herself, confirmed a 2-year “secret relationship” in her VH1 Behind the Music documentary (starting at 12:03). With all of this on the forefront of my mind, I couldn’t help but wonder, what do their present-day relationship statuses look like. And all I can say is, one thing about them tables…oh, baby, they turn.

When Did You Know You Were Over Your Ex?

Ending a relationship is never easy and the process may look differently for different people. One of the most frequently asked questions that I get is, “How long does it take to get over a breakup?” which is a blog post for a different day. But, I’ve found that we often come to the realization that we’ve gotten over our exes when we’re no longer triggered by certain things although it’s not always so easy to understand exactly how it happened.

I asked 40 single men and women when they knew they were over their ex and here’s what they had to say.
