Breaking Out

This Real Simple article fits in the category of “while we’d like your business, we sincerely hope you never need to call us.”  (But if you need to, our phone number is over there on the right.)

Essentially, the article identifies a number of ruts relationships may fall into — like arguing the same way about the same things all the time, or conflicts about money, or communication, or sex — you know, the usual relationship suspects.  What makes the article blogworthy are some of the suggestions, which I’d not seen before, from my Tiger Beat days to my Cosmo days.  For example, they suggest a book club for two to spice up romance (seriously!), or going to an amusement park to spice up your sex life, or not talking so much when you’re having communication difficulties.

It’s worth a read!
