But we’re talking long-term here, so…Few of them are surprisingly very good.It turns out, on the Internet, there are so many “empowering” dating/love advices. I know dating is supposed to be fun and exciting (at least that’s the story most of my married friends are selling), but most of the time I just end up feeling tired and hungry.There was a DJ playing all sorts of fun music, from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme (of which I am proud to say I know […] Yeah, it’s been one of those weeks. Well, I’d been dating someone and that ended this week.

Long-term, healthy relationship is a compromise between those two.”Now, you surely know about the cliche relationship failure: the woman became too needy and clingy, the man then backed off. We can do paperwork at the office and our brain will still able to remind us to buy a surprise birthday cake for our sister, pick up the laundry, and of course — reply to that text message.Then, from woman’s perspective, it means there is one solution for this classic problem: I couldn’t agree more with the importance of “having a life”. They get busy, they focus one thing and forget everything. So in practice, let’s say, women can “have a life” — to get themselves distracted.Not that it isn’t the case anymore, the technology and engineering that takes place at amusement parks is crazy cool, but…amusement parks still carry a sense of nostalgia and history within their gates.Valleyfair, our Minnesota theme park, turns 40 this year.I think it evokes in me a combination of both empathy and relief.
