The Six of Pentacles card suggests that all parties represented by this card are about to get what they want or need, but as the receiver, you should be wary of gifts that may come with strings attached. As long as you deserve them, however, they might represent the boost or reward you have been seeking. As the benefactor or dominant force, it is in your nature to share the love or good fortune as a way of expressing the gratitude and security created within your relationship or love life. Remember to give without ulterior motive, otherwise the aid or justice you mete out may be held back from you in a cat-and-mouse cycle of manipulation. Give of yourself openly, be generous with what you have to offer and you will be rich and successful indeed.

cheatingIf I had to pick one relationship deal breaker, it would be infidelity It's not something I have had to deal with in any relationship, and as far as I am concerned, I would never like to be in the middle of this situation.
I have my own feelings about what would cause a breakdown enough for someone to look out side their relationship. Like I said, I don't have any personal experience so really my thoughts may or may not be the truth about infidelity and I have a feeling there are a lot of myths surrounding infidelity - and I was right.
In a great article written by Scott Haltzman for YourTango, he debunks 10 common myths when it comes to infidelity and spills the truth behind some of those common myths. A few of them surprised me and I've highlighted the 5 that I found most surprising

I can still remember my first date with my husband. It was nearly 14 years ago - I was only 17-years-old and in high school. Dating when you're younger is so much different than dating when you're older, and if you're looking for love, you want that first date to go well. I am not an expert in dating, since I married my first real relationship (and we're still very happily together) so when it comes to first dates, I know I would be so out of my own element. Whether you're still looking for your first love, or back in the dating field, there are some key things you should not talk about when you're on your first date. The goal is always to find someone you're compatible with, have a good spark and go on to have a second (and third, and fourth etc.) date with. Since I don't really know the first thing about first dates, I reached out to some relationship and dating experts who shared with me the topics that should be off-limits for your first date and why.

I had a disappointment today. I blew an opportunity to do well at something that was super important to me. I was struggling to find a way to fix it…to make it right. So I thought: What would I tell another sister to do in this situation? I came up with the answer that worked for me, and I moved on.
I thought you might relate. Maybe you think you blew it with a new guy or you think your time for love has passed. Maybe you are in a relationship that isn't working out and you're staying because you think it's your last opportunity.
My hope is that my process - what I learned and applied in this situation - helps you get past your disappointments when you need to. This is a part of life, and it's all about how you work through it. Giving up on our important dreams is not an option.

Last weekend was my live event in Los Angeles: Mastering the Art of Magnetizing Men. During this two-day event I gave women tons of advice and step-by-step tips to help them attract quality men so they could finally meet their loving lifetime partner.
If you're familiar with my teaching and writing, you know that I frequently talk about "the good guys." These are the only men we at Date Like a Grownup care about. You should always try to meet these guys, especially if you're dating after 40!
As I taught during the event, the good guys are the men who Show Up, Step Up and Grow Up. You don't have to ask yourself "why didn't he call?" because he calls. You don't have to ask "is he in to me? because he shows you loud and clear. If you're not looking to meet men like this; you're not going to find a partner who can really make you feel safe and adored…even for a month. (And forget forever.)
One of the questions asked was something like this: How do I getRead More »from [Video] How Do I Get Myself to Think Nice Guys Are Hot?

Were you at last Friday's Grownup Girls' Night Out Live Man Panel? I had three men - ages 40s, 50s and 70s - generously share their thoughts and feelings about what attracts them to women, what to do on dates, how to tell if a man is into you…and much more. It was spectacular.
There were a lot of questions and we ran out of time; they all didn't get answered. Here is an answer to one of them: How do I answer the dreaded "Why haven't you been married question?"

To whip up these tiny treats for your reception, bridal shower, or engagement party, simply slice a sheet cake using variously sized biscuit cutters. Level the tops of the cut circles with a serrated knife and decorate with fondant dots and pearl dragées (secured with royal icing).

What’s in the water at IKEA?
Earlier this month, a New Jersey couple exchanged wedding vows in the picture-frame aisle at their local IKEA store, where they had first locked eyes eight years earlier. Now, in the latest romantic tale for the Swedish furniture retailer, a Miami man, Carlos Gatos, has staged an elaborate flash-mob proposal in the Sunrise, Florida store.

For some couples, navigating the maze of an IKEA store the ultimate relationship test. But for Gatos and Rebecca Shackelford, it's the place they first met. Two years later, on June 15th, Shackelford looked floored as a suit-clad Gatos descended the store’s long escalator, bouquet of flowers in hand. Then, at the end of a flash mob’s dance routine to Bruno Mars’s “Marry You,” Gatos dropped to his knees before Shackelford (and in front of a large crowd), saying, “You're the greatest thing that's ever happened to me.
