An anticlimactic situation is every man’s greatest fear – but it doesn’t have to be awkward.
By Sarah Stefanson, Sex Education Correspondent
It happens to the best of men. You’re with a girl and it’s feeling good — really good. All of sudden, way too good. Before you know it, you’ve concluded your business and you’ve barely made it past the one-minute mark. As she stares quizzically into your eyes, you have a split second to decide what to do about your early ejaculation. Should you try to play it off with a joke or genuinely apologize? Here are the dos and don’ts of how to react.
Laugh it off
Trying to casually make a joke of the situation is a valid reaction. If you can get her to laugh about it with you, then it will just be an amusing hiccup in an otherwise pleasurable evening. Take a break, have a good laugh and then try again. If she does not find it funny, you have two options: 1) skip to “distracting her” or 2) find Read more
After going unclaimed for 27 days, a $254 million Powerball jackpot — the largest payout ever in Connecticut — has been claimed by three men who work at an asset management firm.
Gregg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson claimed the jackpot this morning. The three men work at Belpointe Asset Management firm.
In early November, a sanitation worker claimed he bought the winning lottery ticket, but lost it.
“He says it’s his number, but he can’t find the ticket, lost the ticket. So I don’t know what to say,” Suni Patel, the owner of the store that sold the winning ticket, told ABC affiliate WTNH-TV in New Haven, Conn.
If he was not mistaken, the sanitation worker has until April 30, 2012, to claim what would now be a quarter of the jackpot.

How to Deal With a Condescending Friend
By an eHow Contributor
As everyone knows, “nobody is perfect” and that includes friends. While most of their character traits are positive, some traits can really get on a person’s nerves. Another axiom is that “people do not change” and if assumed true a person must learn how to deal with a condescending friend and still maintain the friendship. Here’s how.
Consider the positive traits of the condescending friend. They may be funny, caring people outside of the condescending attitude. So concentrate of these things when socializing.
Try to understand where the condescension comes from. People often learn social behavior by the example set by parents and role models. Condescension can also come from their own insecurity around others and they use it as a defense mechanism. If you try to understand the reason someone behaves they way they do it can lead to acceptance.

Say No to Store Cards
When you’re dropping a few hundred dollars at Macy’s or Victoria’s Secret, it’s as hard to resist a pitch for a department store credit card — 10% discount! Bonus points! — as it is to swear off chocolate on day one of your period. But you must not give in. Thakor points out that store cards have obscenely high interest rates as well as outrageous penalties you risk Read more
Are you ready for a relationship?
Most people believe they are ready. However, allow me to ask a few questions to see if you or your partner has what it takes to embark on a relationship.
- Do you like the person you are? This is the most important factor as to whether you are ready to be in a relationship. Liking who you are determines whether your prospective partner also likes who you are. Your self-esteem plays an important part in how you feel about yourself.
- Are you still in love with your ex? You are? Then you are not ready for a relationship and if you are in one, you really shouldn’t be. In order to have a meaningful and committed relationship, you must have emotional clearance. Whether the previous relationship was good, bad or indifferent, it is totally unfair to you and your current partner to be engaging in an emotional interaction if you are not fully fit to do so.
- Are you unwilling/unable to express Read more
7 Ways to Make Him Ache for You
You love your guy. He loves you. But do you wonder if he still wants you like he did when your romance was new? After you pull out a bunch of these tricks, he sure as hell will.
By Colleen Rush
Sure, you want adoration, respect, and the occasional sparkly treat from your man, but more than anything, you want to feel like he’s still got the hots for you. Well, here’s good news: Contrary to the widely held belief that men lose interest over time, experts now know that guys are actually hardwired for long-term lusting.
“It’s absolutely true, but it’s not without conditions,” says Jeffrey Bernstein, PhD, author of Why Can’t You Read My Mind? “You have to make a strategic effort to trigger that craving in him once you’re in a relationship because the spark in your bond won’t last if you neglect it.” For that reason, Cosmo has discovered the seven key make-him-ache-for-you strategies that specifically jump-start your guy’s desire. Be warned: Once you use them, Read more
Letting Love In
Don’t threaten your relationship, learn how to accept AND give love.
By Hara Estroff Marano, published on September 01, 2005 – last reviewed on June 10, 2009
Giving love is one thing. Getting it is another, and altogether different, thing. Accepting and taking in support, appreciation and encouragement can be very difficult for some people. They brush off compliments. They discount votes of confidence. Words of encouragement glance off their ears.
And in so doing, they threaten the relationship they’re in. The problem, however, doesn’t begin with the relationship. Rather, it has deep roots in early experience, affecting the very identity of a person so that as a partner nothing can penetrate his or her armor.
According to Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., and his wife Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D., coauthors of Receiving Love, Transform Your Relationship by Letting Yourself Be Loved, such praise-resistance is nearly universal—and it’s why many relationships don’t get better even Read more
15 Signs He’s Not That Into You
By Aly Walansky SOURCE
We hope you don’t need all 15 signs — that you’ll value yourself enough to hold back and let him show you he’s interested.
But in case you are waiting for some signs, here’s some doozies:
*He never wants to make a definite date (would you like to go out Friday night?)
*He just wants to come over to your house on the spur of the moment
*He doesn’t make an effort to keep in touch
* You are making all the effort to get together
* He doesn’t seem to think about the future
* He’s not done with his ex: you’re a “rebound” relationship
* He fell in love with you while he was still with his ex. (It doesn’t matter if he says the relationship is bad — he has a cheating mentality) If he would cheat on his partner, then why not on you when you are his partner?
* He refuses to talk about past relationships — he’s probably hiding something
* He talks about one past relationship incessantly — it Read more
