The #1 Relationship Holiday Survival Technique (That Doesn't Work)

couplelookingawaycropped200.jpg I'll just let it slide" Carol thought to herself after her husband Rocky got his way (again) when they were trying to finalize vacation plans a few months ago.

A month ago, one of his "jokes" cut her a little too deep.

She said NOTHING and pretended it didn't hurt and acted like nothing was wrong.

A few nights ago, Rocky wanted to go to bed early and have some "fun"...

Carol pretended to have something important she had to do and politely offered a "rain check." (seems as though Pinterest won out over him)

Next time something happens that upsets her, what will she do?

What will you do in situations like this?

Will she (or you) withdraw yet once again and pretend everything's okay OR will she (or you) try something else?

If you're anything at all like "Carol" and millions of other women out there--you're sick and tired of holding back--not saying how you think or feel.

You want to feel seen, heard and you want to feel important.

You need to find the strength and confidence to be able to say anything to your spouse, lover or partner without fear of what they'll say, what they'll think or how they'll react....

Start here --->>> Say anything to the one you love with confidence (and without holding back )

When He Doesn't Want to TALK About It--What To Do...

CoupleGlaringAtEachOther136.jpg Imagine just for a moment...

You want to feel closer but this "thing" that you can't talk about keeps you wary and closed down.

You even start putting a question mark in front of every part of your relationship because you think if "this" can't be resolved, what kind of relationship do you have anyway.

If you've ever felt this kind of frustration before and want some tips on how to get back to loving, here's a question along these lines from a reader and our answer...

A Reader's Question...

"My partner refuses to talk about a problem and if he does say anything, he says one thing but ends up meaning something else. How can I get him to open up and be honest with me?"

Our Answer...

Blindsided by Love?

carwreck200.jpg It seemed to come out of no where and then CRASH...

It was several Christmases ago as we remember it VERY well.

About 10:30 on Christmas night ...

We had been on the road for hours and we're exhausted after eating 2 big meals, exchanging gifts with family,
laughing a lot and spending time with both Susie's family and then Otto's family.

Otto was driving.

We were tired.

And then out of nowhere came this big deer that jumps out from behind a guardrail, onto the highway and in front
of our car that was traveling at about 62 miles per hour and wouldn't you know it...

Before we could do anything...


Otto tried to avoid it but we hit the deer with a glancing blow with the front of our car and as a result, most of the right front end was crushed and twisted.

Fortunately, neither of us were hurt and after we realized we were both fine...

The next task was to figure out if we could put the car back together enough to drive home and then, figure out how make it look and run like new again.

Isn't this the way it is sometimes in a relationship?

Boo... A Scary love Lesson (Learned at a Halloween Party...)

mask.jpg "Take your mask off. I want to see who you really are," Sarah said playfully when she couldn't figure out who was wearing this really UGLY mask at the Halloween party she and her husband Mark went to last weekend.

Turns out, this was a really beautiful woman underneath that UGLY mask and costume that Sarah didn't know and...

Because of how playful Sarah was about all this, the two of them struck up a conversation and are now on the way to becoming fast friends.

Isn't this the way it is sometimes in our love relationships?

Sometimes on the outside, you can come off in pretty ugly ways when inside is this really beautiful person who "means well."

You might not even realize how often you could be coming off in UGLY ways to your beloved and the other important people in your life.

Crazy, huh?

But this is what happens all too often with the people we say we love and care about the most.

What Soul Mates LOVE and HATE about Being Soul mates

couplesilhouetteonbeach2150.jpg There's a lot of talk these days about soul mates...

In fact, people regularly ask us...

"Are you two soul mates?"

Women are wanting to find, have or be with their soul mate and love the idea of what they think will happen when you're in a "soul mate relationship."

We LOVE this because when there's talk in the air about soul mates like there is right now, it allows us to enter a deeper conversation about passion and connection and how to create lasting love that can stay fully alive.

So, what's the truth and reality of being soul mates?

Is it as awesome as you've been led to think and believe it is?


Is it a royal pain in the behind?

Real, Raw and Revealing-- Otto's conversation with a "Tough Guy" about women...

wallsm.jpg If you think men just don't get it when it comes to relationships...

We'll introduce you to the a couple of fantastic communication tips from one of the most unlikeliest of places...

"Mac The Construction Foreman."

Think we're kidding?

We're not.

We've been having some "not so minor" work done on the new house we just moved into a few months ago.

Yesterday, Otto was out doing his self-appointed job of "supervising" the crew that was digging in our yard when he found himself in an absolutely mid-blowing conversation with "Mac" the real foreman of the job.

What was so amazing about this conversation was...

Who this guy was, where he had come from in his life and his stories that he told Otto about the life challenges that
he'd experienced.

Mac was ex-military. Served a couple of tours in Iraq--was tall, muscular and easy-going but at the same time, a no BS kind of guy who never did get that cup of coffee he'd been wanting all morning.

Somehow, Mac trusted Otto and because of this...

He told Otto about things he'd been through that would have made most men shut down, turn off and go sit in a corner somewhere and just be content to have a drink to try to make it through the day instead of being fully engaged in love and life like Mac seemed to be.

The conversation Otto had with Mac was about as real, raw, revealing (and ridiculously good) as any Otto has ever had with a man about women and relationships.

And here's what he said about women and relationships that was totally fascinating and for many men that is "right on target" with how they feel...
