I think everyone should set some clear relationship goals before moving forward in their search for dating and mating. This may sound like obvious advice, but I think it’s worth exploring.
For some people, like guys and gals in their 20s, this isn’t so obvious. Ask yourself the question, what am I looking for?

Hey everyone, so my sexy Vegas post is coming (ha! get it?) but since I am at work on my lunchbreak at the moment, you’re going to get a new year’s resolution-style posting for the moment. Like Lance, I am less into pure resolutions at this stage in my life, but there is something I have been noticing since I’ve been working full-time…
There’s an old saying that life is what happens while you’re making other plans. Well, to a certain extent that’s true, and even a good thing. OTOH, it’s easy to stop living a conscious life when that happens and lose track of your longer-term goals (or even your shorter-term goals). My goal, then (if you want to call it that) is to spend a year taking stock of my life. Here are the two main categories and questions I’m going to ask myself to get started: Continued

All righty, peeps – I am about to ask your advice about something which has me genuinely torn, and while it doesn’t directly affect my relationship, it certainly has all sorts of possibilities to do so. The reason I’m torn is because I feel like there are two things I want more or less equally, and in some ways they are intertwined and in others they are in direct competition with each other.
Ready to weigh in on my life? Here goes… Continued

How are you doing with your new years resolutions? I’ve been meaning to blog my personal goals since the new years, but that post didn’t happen. Well, a month later the topic is still perfectly relevant.
I actually have a system for achieving my resolutions. If you read my post on the subject on TSBMag.com, you’ll see that the key for me is to engage other people (partners or groups). Also, I approach my resolutions as projects rather than just abstract ideas or ambitions.
Here are 3 of the personal projects I embarked on since new years and a breakdown of each one:

I met this totally rad chick on Saturday night. Her name is Lisa, she’s from a small town in the panhandle of Florida and attended the University of West Florida (I rated her an 8). She was partying in Orlando with two girlfriends. Here’s why I thought she was remarkable. Lisa joined the Navy and is heading to bootcamp on Monday. I asked her why she joined the Navy and she said because she wanted to see the world and get out of her small town. Most of her friends were married or engaged and some even had kids. In fact, Lisa has a twin sister who is already divorced AND has a kid. Lisa is 22. None of her friends were rich or on the path to wealth. She knew that if she maintained the status quo her life could be the same.
(Yeah, that’s right, I threw up a pic of Brit hott Catherine Bell, aka Lt Colonel Sarah Mackenzie from JAG. She’s not even Navy, she’s Marine Corp, so sue me. )
I thought this was an incredible piece of self-realization for someone her age and in
her environment. I’ve met plenty of girls out on the scene where this was their reality: Small town, get married, have kids, settle down, age 22. Lisa figured out that she wanted more.
Lisa is gorgeous, so I imagine she must have had plenty of guys from that town trying to lock her down in relationships and get her knocked up. She identified a goal, made a plan, and took action. I found this very attractive, and it makes me rethink my earlier stance on ambition for women not being a significant attractor. Lisa is the coolest girl I’ve met in 2008 by a wide margin, and most of it was due to her intangibles, her self-realization and her ambitions.
I must admit, I wanted to give her a good patriotic bonking before she shipped out. It would be un-American not to feel this way.
Navy Gal, I wish you the best of luck and a safe journey. Don’t get knocked up before you see the world!
