The Eight of Chalices card suggests that the need for personal transformation and fulfillment could alter your love life. As difficult as the choice may be to confront your fears and step away from your comfort zone, the change could be an inevitable step toward finding personal truth and creating happiness. Otherwise you could get lost in excuses, denial or wishful thinking, or rely on outside sources for distractions, security and pleasure. If you make changes willingly, this experience could find you prioritizing. Afterward, you'll be stronger and wiser. Once you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

These ladies are not having it.
The other night I was talking with friends about how awkward it is to meet people at bars. The women in the conversation were sharing their frustration with the whole "getting the number" process. They feel they have to give their number out to be friendly (and to get a guy to go away if he's hitting on her). But some guys make it tough for girls to be nice.
The common move among guys (I'm guilty of this one too), after getting a girl's number, is calling her phone to confirm that that it's real and that his number is now registered in her phone. Most guys will watch the girl's phone as they call it to make sure there's no funny business going on. Essentially, cell phones have made it impossible for a girl to give a guy the wrong number.
The best way for a girl to avoid that awkward first date is to not give her number out in the first place. As a guy, I know the ins and outs of the phone number game. If a cute girl is giving me any sign of hope, I'm going to try forRead More »from How to Avoid Giving Out Your Phone Number
When the sex begins to dwindle (it will) and the obligations start to pile up (they do), rather than settle, sweetly shock your husband. By Anne Roderique-Jones, REDBOOK.Read More »from 10 Ways to Surprise Him After All These Years
Give him a date, not an obligation
Between driving the kids to school, meetings, and housework - and that's before noon - keeping things fresh often gets put on the back burner. Make it a priority by tricking him into a sweet surprise. Jessie Dillon of Dallas, TX, and her husband are always trying to get each other to run errands. "It seems that if I'm not asking him to pick up the dry cleaning, I'm having him meet my family for lunch," she says. "Recently, I decided to surprise him by having him 'meet me to have his suit tailored.' He begrudgingly agreed, and when he showed up, I handed him two tickets to a baseball game so that we could enjoy his idea of a great afternoon."
Celebrate him for no reason
Men like to feel like king of the castle, but often consider themselves neglected between the carpooling, cleaning
We were sitting on a stoop on my old 9th Street block. It was a summer Saturday night, and we were eating a carton of Ben & Jerry's with plastic spoons, waiting for someone to high-five us. This game was my idea: I haven't been in the East Village once in the last year without a stranger on the street putting his palm in front of me, his button-down shirt often slightly open regardless of the weather, yelling "Give me five!"Read More »from How I Turned Instagram into a Dating Service

Within minutes a young business-type gingerly put his hand ahead of him as he passed us. His fingers brushed mine. My companion looked at me incredulously, and I laughed. This was a good first date. We'd already gotten a little Champagne-drunk at Balthazar hours before landing here, with Cherry Garcia in tow.

Match.com is facing a $10 million lawsuit.Nevada woman Mary Kay Beckman is suing Match.com for 10 million dollars for negligence after a man she met on the site and dated for 10 days tried to kill her after she broke up with him. She claims the site didn't do enough to warn her about the dangers of meeting "an individual whose intentions are not to find a mate, but to find victims to kill or rape."Read More »from Woman Sues Match.com Over Her Attempted Murder, and Hers is Not the First Case
After reading about Beckman's terrifying ordeal, our first thoughts were "we're surprised this doesn't happen more often." 40 million people in the U.S. have tried online dating, according to Statistic Brain. As it turns out, several women have been victims of violence at the hands of men they met through online dating sites.
5 New Rules for Online Dating Every Woman Should Know

This post is the second in a series. Previously: In Defense of Millennials, Part 1.
The growing perception of Modern Dating for women is that it's a chaotic, directionless spiral away from commitment and into drunken hookups and futility.
But, honestly? Women today don't have it bad when it comes to dating. In fact, we have it pretty wonderful. The reason, of course, is freedom - we have the power, and tools, to have our dating life be however we'd like it to be.
For centuries and centuries, a woman's lot in life was based entirely on the supposition that she would get married, and the sooner the better. In the middle ages, a girl would live in her parents house until the ripe old age of 15 or so, at which point her father would march her down the aisle and hand her off to a husband. The next 25 years would be spent getting pregnant, narrowly escaping death during childbirth, and picking out new tapestries for the castle great room, orRead More »from Why Women Have Never Had it Better when it Comes to Dating
But Vonn isn't a porn star, like so many of Woods' ex-paramours. Nor is she a model like Woods' former wife, Elin Nordegren. She's a four-time World Cup championship winner. She doesn't need Tiger's fame or money and she doesn't exactly court the media. So, why the hell is she dating Tiger Woods? For that matter, why would anyone?Tiger isn't the first or only man who's behaved despicably only to be beckoned into the forgiving arms of a new woman. Take Charlie Sheen. Let's put aside for a moment his well publicized drug addiction, his alleged propensity for trashing hotel rooms, and his affinity for porn stars. In 1990, Sheen's loaded gun, which he carried around in his pants pocket for inexplicable reasons, went off while his then-fiance actress Kelly Preston was picking up his pants, injuring her in the arm. After the two broke up, Read More »from Why The Hell Would Anyone Date Tiger Woods?

Are You Using Social Media to Brag About Your Relationship?Ok. I get it, not everyone wants to know that I have the best husband ever or that he surprised me and brought home my favorite dessert. But do you care to know that he bought me some bling or that he is sending me to the spa this weekend? No? Good. Because he didn't and he's not but he's welcome to do so. Let's just be clear about that.
There is a thin line between sharing and bragging, and social media makes it hard to tell sometimes. For some it really is just sharing. Our family and friends love to see whatever we are tweeting, posting or instagraming. I mean realistically, if they don't want to see it they can un-friend or un-follow. If you don't want to see photos of my children or my husband over and over, you have every right to make sure that my feed no longer pops up each time you sign on.
For those of us who are keen on sharing whatever it is we choose to share, what is our reason for doing it? I am asking myself by the way because the article I read by Your TangoRead More »from Do You Use Social Media to Brag About Your Relationship?
Taylor Swift performing live.Taylor Swift cannot write a bad pop song. She apparently can't write a song about anything other than breakups, either. While we are shameless Swifties, we'd definitely like to see her branch out more - if not to different subject matter, then at least to some more honest, less PG-13 tales of heartbreak. Here are some examples of the kind of breakup songs we'd love to see on her next platinum album:

The Queen of Swords card suggests that you may be influenced by the skill of this Queen to advocate for reasonable means and impartial decisions. Use her strength to open up discussions and persevere in the face of conflict while keeping emotions in check. This situation may serve to complete the connection between wisdom and experience. Consider delegating authority to her or deferring to her impartial opinions -- she can go head-to-head in a battle of wits, making her a natural choice for compassionate mediation or legal assistance. Stick to the facts, know your own mind, follow the rules and keep your distance, but be willing to listen and let your perceptions grow out of the evidence rather than from prejudice or spite. You might be able to better articulate your relationship concerns or demands without getting sidetracked by distractions, gossip or rhetoric.
