    When it comes to a happy relationship, women are off the hook in one surprising way: Apparently your man's health and disposition matter more than yours. That's the finding of one study, anyway. Researchers found that men's good health and upbeat personality lead to relationship bliss. But women's health and temperament don't matter nearly as much. Does that mean we get to stop pretending we're much nicer than we really are?

    Being a single mother almost always means a life spent racing the clock. Our days often begin well before dawn and extend long past sundown. In between, our schedules are filled with the rigors and challenges of balancing career, child rearing, and homemaking.

    An evening spent with a great guy is something I know I always look forward to. But what guys think is a dating hot spot may be, for a single mom, a surefire dating not-not.

    Here are 5 places never to take a single mom on a first date.

    In honor of Valentine’s Day, GiftsDirect.com took to the streets of Dublin to ask more mature couples their secrets for making love last. What they got was a touching collection of stories as an older generation remembered fondly the good times they’ve had in love.

    It seems like there’s always some new study out “proving” which relationships are doomed, or more likely to succeed, based on what month you were born in or what order you do things in the shower. It’s nice to hear real people that have thrived in loving relationships talk about how they’ve made it.

    Being romantic isn't always about wining and dining and buying fancy jewelry. In fact, a lot of times that could be done without thought. We want your brains to excite us! Show us you are thinking -- truly thinking -- and we find that completely romantic.

    With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I polled women and asked them what were some of the most romantic things their men could do for them. Men, do this this Valentine's Day ... or any day.

    When it comes to romance, it's pretty safe to say that most of us wish the men in our lives would kick things up a notch or two. We'd all love to receive flowers every week, be wined and dined on a Saturday night, or be whisked off to a cozy bed and breakfast for the weekend.

    But given how hectic our everyday lives are -- sometimes the little things our husbands and boyfriends do to make our lives a bit easier are enough to make our hearts flutter.

    A recent poll found that many modern men view small gestures as romantic -- like taking out the trash and/or leaving the toilet seat down.

    And as crazy as it sounds, they're right. Those things are pretty romantic -- especially to moms who don't have one extra minute of spare time to take on additional tasks during the day.

    I like to pretend that there's no such thing as a bad kisser -- only one that hasn't found someone that enjoys their particular style yet. Oh who am I kidding? There are some really lousy kissers out there. What's the saying? You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince?

    Well, there are't just frogs with cold, wet lips out there. There are lots of kinds of bad kissers, and they can all be described by a different species in the animal kingdom.

    I recently went on my first date since my marriage ended last spring. It was also my first official date since I was 18 -- over a dozen years ago. Dating at almost 31, as it turns out, is much different than dating as teenager. You’re shocked, I know.

    It was a blind date, and the guy was nice and all, but I probably won’t go on a second date with him. No particular reason -- he was cute (very pretty eyes), established in his career (lawyer), and we shared similar backgrounds (turns out we both went to the same small private university) -- but there wasn’t really anything there that made me feel like I couldn’t wait to see him again.

    We all have those days when we just feel like a total slouch, unkempt and unsexy as all get out. And then are times when we kind of feel like we’re rocking it a little, and would really appreciate a nice compliment.

    It doesn’t matter what state you’re in, sometimes your man will say something that makes you feel downright unsexy. From an innocent comment taken the wrong way to the deliberately hurtful, words have power, man, and sometimes they make us think, wow, it’s almost like you don’t want to get lucky tonight.

    When you're in a long-term relationship, and especially when you have children, it can be easy to forget that there was a time you actually enjoyed greeting your love at the door with a steak and a handmade card -- just because. We know how important it is to maintain a romantic connection, and most of us certainly appreciate it when we're handed a bouquet of flowers on a random Wednesday. 

    Consider this sweet note -- more like a booklet, really -- created by one wife for her husband as a reminder that we should all break out markers and crayons once in awhile and express our love in the purest way possible. In other words, there's no need to shell out hundreds of dollars. A simple card and some adorable stick-figure cartoons were enough to bring tears to this husband and dad's eyes

    If you're wondering why your romps in the sack aren't as hot as they should be, it might be something you're doing. Yep, it's not them, it's you.

    I know, I know YOU'RE perfect in bed, but hey, it's still worth cross-checking your bedroom behaviors with my handy checklist. Who knows? Maybe your partner is just being nice by not saying anything.
