The Two of Wands card suggests that you might believe that you have it all. You may think your influence, sex appeal or charisma is supreme or that you have your target or romantic interest in hand. However, while you are admiring your conquest or attempting to control your situation, you could be missing or daydreaming about something else. You might be keeping your options open, waiting for results, watching out for rivals, or waiting or wishing for someone or something else out there. Perhaps you are hoping an old flame or new spark will show up and fill your emptiness or discontent with domestic life.

As if the engagement rings Vera Wang designed in collaboration with Zales weren't enough, the iconic wedding dress designer is expanding her bridal empire to include a seven-piece couture-quality collection also called Vera Wang LOVE.
Priced between $24,000 and $47,000, Wang's LOVE collection is designed to inspire with round, emerald and princess-cut center stones weighing in at more than 2 carats. Several of the pieces feature split-shank settings dotted with pavé diamonds. Each ring can be set in white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold, and features the designer's signature hidden sapphire stone on the band's interior.
"When I design a new collection I always think about how the details and quality of what we create can resonate with brides all over the world," explains the designer. "I draw inspiration from the experiences in my own life that I feel every bride can relate to. What makes the entire design process complete is what it says about a woman, thatRead More »from See the Seven Engagement Rings in Vera Wang's Brand-New Boutique Collection!

When street photographer Matt Weber was a New York City taxi driver in the late '70s and early '80s, he says he witnessed "many unbelievable" events on the streets, including the hardships and loneliness of life in a big city. So in 1984, Weber decided to record it all, buying his first camera, a $150 Canon AE-1, and snapping away from the window of his yellow cab. Over the past 30 years, in addition to fist fights and the grittiness of the Big Apple, he's also captured a more romantic side of New York, photographing couples in love. "I must be a romantic, since the old black and white movies have always gotten the best of me," Weber told Yahoo Shine. From PDA at a subway station to couples stealing kisses on bustling sidewalks, check out a few of his photographs from one of his collections, "Urban Romance." -- Ali SwankRead More »from Street Photographer Captures New York City Romance Over 30 Years

Oh gosh, I can remember being 13 years old and having a hard crush on the popular boy in the grade above me in school. I was far too shy to really ever make anything of it, but I can still recall those awkward situations that came up when I realized I had a crush. It's not something that only happens in early teenage life though. If you're single and you've just met someone for the first time, or maybe not even personally met, there are signs that you've developed a crush that may not be evident to you, but they are to us. And it's totally cute, for the most part. Click through for 7 signs you definitely have a crush on that person! -By Devan McGuinnessRead More »from 7 Signs You Definitely Have a Crush on that Person

Taken together, here's what that tells me: You are facing the prospect of having new sexual partners. After all, you have hopes of falling in love, which means you will want to consummate your relationship by making love with your man.
The thought of that might excite the hell out you, or scare the crap out of you. Could go either way.
You may have never thought you'd be dating, romancing and making love with new men at this stage in your life. And doing it while your body is changing, sweating and certainly not responding to anything the way it used to…now that's just a delightful surprise, right?

Rori Raye, dating coach and author of the Have the Relationship You Want series, says there is a sure-fire way to alleviate all of that old-school angst that sabotages any hopes of having a long-term relationship with a man. You must circular date! You don't know what that means? Well, you've come to the right place.
“Circular dating is a therapeutic tool that has nothing to do with ‘the strategy of finding Mr. Right,’” Raye tells Yahoo Shine. “It’s about putting yourself out there in social situations where you can interact and date many men without having an agenda.”
Raye believes that women who want to find true love end up ruining their chances when they constantly worry about the guy or what to do next in order to move the relationship along. Her
