Even though I still love him, I am starting to feel like he is using me for physical reasons and I am mad that I keep giving in to him. The fact that he is still calling and trying to connect is preventing me from moving on…
Dear JMag® Readers,
Last week I received an overwhelming number of dating questions from members of the community and this week I decided to share one with you. While I simply cannot answer them all, I do try to answer each query personally and I hope the emails keep coming.
Oh, the anticipation and pressure of February. It’s both the most romantic month of the year and the shortest month on the calendar. It can be a very exciting time for those in new relationships who are feeling lucky in love. But for those of us who are single, we may have started feeling the anxiety about the big Hallmark day back in January.
Not all chocolate is good chocolate. In fact, there is a lot of bad chocolate out there. Thankfully it is easy to find the good stuff. Look at the ingredients on the label. There should be just a small handful of ingredients. They should be: cacao paste, sugar, cocoa butter, lecithin and vanilla for dark chocolate.
Ladies, step away from the Kindle. Leave your Nook on the night table. It’s time you pick up a real paperback novel. With this in mind, the Single Edition editors rounded up some of our favorite reads from the past year, from the women we love to love! From break-up recovery plans to single gal self-empowerment and relationship tactics, there is something for everyone on this must-read list.
I was always fascinated by two hot dog stands that were on the corner of 55th and Madison. One of the stands was kosher and the other was not. I used to watch people go out of their way, even waiting extra traffic light changes, to get to the kosher hot dog stand.
We see doctors for health checkups and accountants to help us get our finances in order. There are also those of us who may even have regular sessions with a fitness instructor, therapist or career coach. Yet somehow, when it comes to matters of the heart, we neglect to get treatment.
Imagine soft candle light, beautiful music, crisp-refreshing martinis, crackling skinned chicken with the fragrance of rosemary and lemon perfuming the air and deep dark chocolate mousse.
Is it your favorite restaurant? No. This is your home kitchen with you at the helm. Usually date night means eating at a restaurant and sometimes having a great meal and sometimes not. I propose that the next date night, whether you are cooking for one or two, that you treat yourself and those you love to an intimate home cooked meal.
Are you maximizing your experience on JDate? Do you do everything possible to meet your perfect match? Are you meeting as many people as possible? If not, here are a few ideas.
Remember that second piece of pie that you just had to have? Well, now you are regretting every delicious bite. No worries. I have two; count them two, tasty soups that are low in fat and big on flavor. No need to worry about breaking resolutions with these scrumptious recipes. Both soups are quick and easy do-ahead recipes that will help you start the New Year off with a bang. Each recipe can be made ahead of time and frozen. I like to freeze portions of soup in reusable containers (this is part of that “Be Green” resolution you also made!) and then reheat each portion when I am ready.
