Flannel: I went through a pretty awful divorce a few years back, and now I've met someone wonderful and fabulous and all that great stuff but he lives in Boston. I'm not sure how to proceed. I am so fearful of being hurt AGAIN. I'm from PA. We are over 300 miles apart.
cl-drellenk: Flannel, I can't tell you how many people shut themselves off from having another relationship because they are so afraid of being hurt again. I truly believe that it is better to have loved and lost then to have never have loved at all. Every relationship that ends teaches you a lesson, even if it's about what you don't want the next time. Just so everyone knows, Fai34 just won a copy of my book that will be autographed personally for her.
tree6199: My husband and I love each other very much, but neither one of us feels like having sex that much. Is this normal? We have 2 kids.
cl-drellenk: Yes, it is, but if you wait until you're in the mood to have sex the kids will be 21 years old.
tree6199: So what do you do, just do it anyway?
cl-drellenk: You need my book Is There Sex after Kids. Most of the time, when I get interviewed, the interviewer asks me how could I possibly have written a book when the answer is obviously no, but this is what I tell parents: the best gift that you give your children is a loving relationships with each other. The happiest, most well adjusted children come from a home where mommy and daddy love each other. They'll be gone someday, and if you don't pay attention to your mate, they won't pay attention to theirs.
