If your partner cheated or was abusive, you'd probably "Bye, boy" him immediately.
When we think of the "big" relationship issues, we tend to focus on a few common issues. However, there are relationship land-mines that come in the form of expectations.
And many times, we don't discuss these expectations until we are faced with the fallout.
What would you do if your partner expects you to follow strictly traditional gender roles? Or what if he demands that you put his career ahead of yours?
In this episode we analyze two specific relationship situations and give our two cents on how these ladies should proceed.
Boundaries aren't the sexiest topic when it comes to our relationships. Yet, without knowing how to effectively use them, your relationships will forever be a source of struggle.
Consider these questions...
> Do you consistently feel resentful toward someone in your life?
> Do you feel taken advantage of at times?
> Do you feel powerless dealing with some people?
If you answer is yes to any of those questions, you need a boundary checkup PRONTO!
Listen to this episode as we discuss the different types of boundaries, WHY so few people have healthy ones, and HOW to successfully speak up for yourself and feel powerFULL and free from resentment for good.
We know that one of the best things about vacation is the romance and hot sex you end up having when you escape regular life.
Have you ever thought about WHY the sex is so much better on vacation? Because there are some very specific reasons for this phenomenon.
In this episode, we outline the reasons the nooky is nicer when you are out of town: It's a new trend called vacation sex.
And we tell you most importantly exactly how you can enjoy it even when you AREN'T on vacation.
We all know the type: the "LOOK AT ME! ME! ME!" woman who posts a million duckfaced selfies and is constantly looking for attention anywhere she can find it.
But not every attention-seeking woman is out to get your man. Yet some are.
How do you know the difference between someone who just needs a ton of validation vs. someone who has specifically set out to steal your guy?
And more importantly, how do you get them to knock off their over-the-line behavior without seeming jealous, crazy, or insecure?
In this episode, we share some surprising stats on the prevalence of mate poachers and give specific tips on how to shut down these annoying women for good...while keeping your relationship happily humming along.
Ahhh...it's that time of year where the hustle and bustle of the holidays is about to give way to a fresh new year.

SIDE NOTE: After recording, it was discovered during the audio editing process that my microphone was effed up. And unfortunately there was little we could do to fix it. So despite my sounding like I'm sitting inside a tin can, Gia and I opted to go ahead and publish the episode (shitty audio and all). We hope you can look past the less-than-stellar sound and enjoy the conversation and information.
If you are single and looking to find love (and a long-term relationship) there is a right way...and a wrong way...to make that happen.
Join us in part two of our interview with Claire Casey as we discuss...

> How to know when to walk away or stick around
> Why arranged marriages surprisingly work (it may not be what you think)

We've all been through this frustrating scenario: Meet a great guy, things start out beautifully..then he gets confusing...
> He runs hot hot hot...then cold as ice
> He doesn't proactively make time for you (but says yes when you do the work)
> He's attentive when he's around but ghosts for days or weeks
> He seems into you but you don't know where you stand
