Soul Mates

5795 Views | 10 Comments | 1 Articles | 2/16/2015 4:10:45 PM

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.” – Plato Read more…

Of Dogs and Men

8602 Views | 25 Comments | 0 Articles | 11/18/2014 3:41:58 PM

Cows are considered holy in India.  A horse lover treats the animal like family, just like any other person would treat a beloved pet.  Dogs are often referred to as man’s best friend.  Unless it is the apocalypse, and your beloved pet is dying or already dead, and your survival depends on eating him, you would never, ever think of such a deed; heck, even if this was the scenario, you’d probably rather die than turn your friend into food!

Choices, Choices, Choices

Picture this: A man and a woman who had just started dating, fall victim to the twisted humor of fate and find themselves stranded on an island, thousands of miles from civilization.  They both realize it’s a good thing that they have gotten along so well so far; the physical attraction between them has only gotten stronger, in fact.  An emotional connection has already started to deepen and, as all early relationships go, they have only explored the shallow waters of how much their minds also fit together.  But they both agree that they are lucky to be stranded on an island together, instead of with a complete stranger or somebody they disliked.  Read more…

Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life. - Anne Roiphe Read more…

What It Means to Be A Man in A Relationship

5066 Views | 14 Comments | 2 Articles | 9/2/2014 3:47:23 PM

This should be a good topic for discussion on the CLM forum; but here are my thoughts on it. Does it mean being the partner that makes all the decisions? Does it mean always having the final say? Does it mean showing he is in charge, any way he can? Read more…

Does The Woman Make The Man? Why Chinese Women May Be Doing it Right!

5193 Views | 12 Comments | 4 Articles | 8/28/2014 2:30:46 PM

Speaking from personal experience, it does seem to be one of the harshest realities of life that most men are nothing more than overgrown kids that need continued mothering.  There are, of course, exceptions and it would be safe to say that these exceptions had amazing mothers.  I do not mean to disparage the men on CLM.  My point is not to ridicule men; it is merely to attempt to explore if, in relationships, the woman does make the man.

From the Point of View of a Nonconforming Feminist

3237 Views | 5 Comments | 1 Articles | 8/23/2014 11:58:33 AM

First of all, I would like to say that I highly commend my co-blogger, Peter, for bringing up and so articulately discussing this controversial issue, especially because he belongs to the opposite sex.  He has pointed out in his blog "Who Needs Feminism" that, Read more…

Are Chinese or Asian Women Swooning Over Christian Grey?

3069 Views | 5 Comments | 1 Articles | 8/2/2014 5:09:48 PM

The book came out and all my female friends and acquaintances couldn’t shut up about Christian Grey.  I am a genuine LOVER of books and I will read any genre as long as the story is well-written and the plot interests me.  With that being said, I must also admit that I also have a tendency to be highbrowed when choosing books that I can truly lose myself in. I found myself wondering, is this book series appealing to all women, and more specifically, is it captivating Chinese and other Asian women the way it is captivating Western women? Read more…

L.T.’s Theory of Pets – How Pets Can Ruin a Relationship

4554 Views | 5 Comments | 1 Articles | 7/27/2014 1:56:50 PM

I read this interesting short story, L.T.’S Theory of Pets by Stephen King, about a marriage that ended because the couple favored different pets.  Here’s the plot summary (from Wikipedia,'s_Theory_of_Pets): Read more…

Why remember now, after so many years?  And perhaps more importantly, how could she have repressed such a terrible experience?  Her relationship with her papa never changed even after it happened.  Even now, as the memories continue to crash like waves over her, threatening to drown her, she can’t remember ever being emotionally and psychologically damaged by the abuse; at least, not in the same way that most children who suffered the same were usually damaged.  Read more…
