At least once in the lifetime, we all struggled with a difficult relationship. We had to pass over heartbreaks and disappointments, leaving the man we loved without having completely understood what had gone wrong.
Sometimes it is even harder to understand why we ended up with a break up instead of a happy ending. What I have discovered over the years (and many failed relationships), is that much of this is due to a lack of understanding by both parties of the dynamics of a relationship.
It took me many years to figure this out, but to help other women who are struggling (like I used to) I have decided to put together everything I have learned (mostly through trial and error) so that hopefully other women will find their life partner so that they can experience true happiness in their relationships a lot quicker than I did.

Whether you are unable to find the right partner, face relationship difficulties, deal with a breakup or you just feel that your partner has lost his sexual interest in you, you should be able to find these topics covered below.
