• 5 Ways to Snag a Man Without Scaring Him Away5 Ways to Snag a Man Without Scaring Him AwayTimes have changed, ladies. We no longer have to wait by the sidelines while every other girl dances with a cute boy. We can ask him out to dance because it's no longer taboo to tell a man you're interested. It's 2014 and women are encouraged to be proactive. And so we are.

    But what about the myth that chasing a man reeks of desperation? It can if you do it the wrong way. As Rori Raye states in this YourTango post, "When we find ourselves falling for a man, it's normal to start feeling that if we don't show enough interest in him he might get the wrong message and drift away." That's when we act like boy-crazy teenagers.

    So, yes, show him you like him! Just make sure to do it right. Here are five ways to chase a man without scaring him away.

    1. Ask Him Out

    A man will notice you if you are bold enough to ask him out. It isn't desperate; it shows confidence. Besides, many women don't go this route so you will stand out from the crowd. What can you say? You're a woman who knows

  • Thinkstock / The Bump

    By Sarah Yang for TheBump.com

    Did it suddenly seem like babies and baby bumps were popping up everywhere the moment you started thinking about getting pregnant? And all you want to see is that BFP, and still nothing. We know how it feels, so we asked a pro how to cope.

    Throw yourself a pity party…but don't overdo it

    Yes, you can feel sorry for yourself. "I do believe in throwing pity parties," says Shoshana Bennett, PhD, a clinical psychologist. You don't even have to stop at one pity party. If you need to do it each month until you're pregnant, go ahead. But here's the trick: You want to end on a positive note each time, or else it could lead to more depression. So pick a time and place and let it all out -- cry, yell, write in a journal -- however it is that you can get your feelings out. But give yourself a time limit: Party's over in 15 minutes (that kind of thing).

  • Hang up the phone! This week is off the hook.

    There's serious malefic energy at work when it comes to communication this week. Adding to the tension will be an emotionally-charged Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the relationship sign of Libra, right in the midst of the communication drama.

    Fortunately, we'll enjoy a slight reprieve by later in the week, as the benefic planets (Venus and Jupiter) play nice. By Sunday, however, big changes loom ahead. Are you ready? The best advice for early this week will be to keep your mouth shut. Listen to conversations around you, but don't respond. You'll be glad you exercised this incredible control if you listen, but be warned: It will be quite difficult to listen.

    See what's going to happen in your near future with a Timeline Tarot reading, and here's the lowdown on the key cosmic events the week of April 13-19, 2014.

    Monday, April 14 and Tuesday, April 15: Mercury in Aries square Jupiter in Cancer; Mercury conjunct Uranus; Pluto Retrograde; Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra; and

  • The King of Swords card reversed suggests that the question may be, 'Do you want to be right -- and alone?' Consider softening your approach. Reconsidering a criticism or hard-line stance on a matter could improve your relationship or love life. In matters of love, reason, statistics or facts may not add up to happiness and they could mean a cold heart, particularly if you are holding out for this King's conditional approval. In an ironic twist, it could be your respectful, compassionate refusal to defer or obey that breaks him or melts his heart or gets him to make an exception to the rule. Avoid the temptation to retaliate in kind or to take preemptive measures that could be premature. Know that love and truth will find a way, with or without him.

  • Sure, being single has its perks--flirting with countless guys, going to work still smiling from an epic date the night before, and feeling utterly elated when a guy you're into asks you out again. But all that excitement and uncertainty can't beat the comfort of knowing that the man you're with is the real deal. By Brie Schwartz, REDBOOK.

    Marshall and Lily are living the dream.1. You have a built-in wingman who you can drag to awkward dinner parties and weddings.

    2. No more waking up in a post-night-out panic, reaching for your phone, and praying you didn't booty-text your ex.

    3. Having an adult to watch Frozen with--and knowing he's not just doing it to get in your pants. He actually learned the Elsa parts.

    4. Being able to "accidentally" toot in front of your guy without feeling like you're about to die a slow, humiliating death.

  • Study finds couples are more perceptive than you might think(Newser) - If what you and your partner do between the sheets is no longer doing much for you, but you're faking satisfaction for appearances' sake, you may be fooling ... no one.

    A study of 84 heterosexual couples by researchers at Canada's University of Waterloo has found that men and women in a relationship "have fairly accurate and unbiased perceptions of their partners' sexual satisfaction," the study's lead author says per the university's site.

    The study's participants were either married or lived together, and were asked to report on their sexual and relationship satisfaction, sexual communication, and ability to recognize emotions-as well as that of their partner. The study found that men and women were pretty accurate in gauging their partner's satisfaction level; no significant gender difference emerged, though the study notes that "one sample t-tests" showed men actually "slightly underestimated their partners' levels of sexual satisfaction."

    Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" was a huge hit.
    But it also has some solid advice when it comes to dating and relationships.

    Courtesy of Instagram @MileyCyrusCourtesy of Instagram @MileyCyrusIn fact, the struggles that she talks about in the song are common mistakes that both men and women make. Her moment of clarity is what is actually quite profound… whether she actually wrote the lyrics, I don't know. But she clearly felt them. And so have millions of fans. Here are the lyrics, then I will break down what seems to be the meaning…
    "I came in like a wrecking ball"
    "all I wanted was to break your walls."
    "all you ever did was wreck me"
    "I just wanted you to let me in, and instead of using force, I guess I should have let you in."

    The harder I tried to break you, the more you pushed back and fortified your resolve against my force. I exhausted myself by slamming up against an impenetrable wall.

  • Nightmare

    Other people's dreams are never interesting…except when they're about sex. Each week, EMandLO.com dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

    My boyfriend and I had been arguing all night. Sometime around 4 am, going on 5, we both had a nightmare and addressed each other about it around 8 in the morning. We weren't in the same place, he was home and I was home. I find it so ironic how we had the same dream (when we weren't even around each other) let alone more ironic how we woke up at the same time. His dream was that he got jumped. My dream was that these kids he had altercations with were outside my house begging him to come out & pulled out guns but the cops came. Is this symbolizing it's gonna come true? I'm scared, I'm thinking about visiting a fortune teller. Please help!
