SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Do you know what turns you on? Know what you need from your relationship. Then proceed with confidence. Mutually discuss your needs.

Relationships fail when two people who have been in love stop meeting each other's needs. This is another reason for paying attention to each other as the relationship progresses.

Needs change. Be sensitive to the changing needs of your love partner and your own. Talk about the changes and how they affect each other. Healthy people communicate.

Happy and healthy relationships are usually made between happy and healthy people -- people who were happy and healthy before they became love partners. They are those who were content to first be happy alone so they can be happy with someone else.

It is only natural to have a list of qualities that you would prefer your new love partner to have or guidelines for how you would like the relationship to be. Caution. Be flexible. Know where you will compromise and where there is no room for compromise, then draw your line and stand on it.

You must know what must be present in your relationship for happiness to be stimulated within you. Know what brings you pleasure, then communicate those needs.

Read more on this. . .

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  We use reasons to explain away why we don't want to do something different; reasons why we don't want to change. If we know that doing something different might help the situation, not doing something different is called "stupid." The best reason why has never solved the problem. Often reasons why are understandable, however what is not understandable is why we feel the need to have our lives dominated by reasons why we didn't do something different instead of results. When we make the decision to go for results in our love relationships. . . that's the real moment we make a decision to grow and prosper.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  We are strongest when we are letting go of what doesn't work. When we open our mind to behave in a different way, we create the freedom to love. To open our hearts to love is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to ourselves.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For intimacy to grow in a healthy love relationship there can be no withholding. Feelings - the relevant truth - both positive and negative, must be shared equally between love partners. . . in a loving way.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Forgiveness is for your benefit. It gives you the freedom to move forward. Telling someone you forgive them is a bonus and it is not necessary for forgiveness to be complete. Forgiveness will release you from all personal suffering and feelings of loss. Forgiveness is a mental attitude. Once convinced of its own idea, forgiveness is complete; freedom follows.

From the book, "LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing!" by Larry James

Larry gets LoveNotes. . . "For the first 3 years of our marriage it seemed like a big black cloud was hovering over us. Nothing good was happening. My wife found your Website and suggested that we read 'Communicating is Not Optional' together and actually do the process. We did. Next, we called for coaching and the way we communicate will never be the same. Thanks, Larry"

Featured Relationship Article

Read "How to Get the Most From Reading a Relationship Book" - Let's face it. Reading a relationship book will not mend a broken heart or fix a relationship that needs a major overhaul. Books don't work! People in the relationship have to do the work. A relationship book can offer tips, suggestions, old ideas expressed new ways, perhaps even a few new thoughts and if you are reading with an open mind; a mind that is ready to change its way of thinking, you might even find the inspirationto begin to reinvent the relationship you have to make it better.

Featured Relationship "Book-of-the-Month"

Books make grrreat gifts for someone you love!

What He Can't Say What He Can't Tell You... and Needs to Say: Intimate Conversations With Men - Dr. Brenda Shoshanna, Ph.D. - The common myth is that men don't like to talk. The truth is they don't know how. They've been conditioned to leave the emotions to women. Dr. Shoshanna has persuaded a wide range of men from all walks of life to open up and speak their minds on: living up to-and living down - the stereotype of "Real Men", the need for male bonding, sexual fears and apprehensions, what their jobs and careers symbolize, the importance of spirituality, what being in love means to them, and who they really are and what they really want from a woman. Women will finally get the answer to the question, "What is he thinking?" And, more importantly, they will learn techniques for opening up the lines of communication so they won't have to wonder any more.

Larry's Review: Every man should read this book. . . and learn to say what he needs to say.

Sample: Being anxious, always in a rush and racing after whatever it is we've imagined will help us to be more at peace with ourselves, is like running to catch the shadow of a passing cloud on a hot summer's day so that we get to stand in a cool spot!

Relationship Humor

A husband and wife came for relationship coaching after 20 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 20 years they had been married.

She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the relationship coach got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.

The relationship coach turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do this?"

The husband thought for a moment and replied, "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I go fishing."
