Who wants a badass relationship?

You want a Badass relationship!

When do you want it?


Be yourself. Always.

Life is too short. Most people agree with this statement. Take a page from Auntie Mame’s playbook:

Allow room for personal growth.

Be honest.

Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.

Albert Einstein


Be compassionate.

Sometimes we forget that the people closest to us need empathy and understanding. When we’re willing to treat strangers with more compassion than our mate, then it’s time for a reality check. Besides, showing empathy is hot.


Easy, right? If it’s so simple to do, why is there so much research about how to do it? Check out Skills You Need for more tips.


The better you feel, the better your sex life. Period. Get moving. If you can find a way to exercise together, then do it! There’s nothing sexier than watching your mate get stronger (not just physically, by the way.) Exercise doesn’t have to be the traditional ‘go to the gym routine.’ Learn to dance together. In Omaha, NE there’s Jitterbugs Night Out. I bet there’s something like it where you live. If not, pick something else. Go hiking, swimming, walking, jump on a trampoline — the possibilities are endless.

Eat healthy food.

You know the saying: Garbage in, garbage out. Eat, drink, and be merry some of the time, not most of the time. Drink lots of water. You don’t have to be a saint about it. Remember that you want to be around playing with your mate as long as possible. You can’t do that if you eat a lot of crap. Bad food jams your system, makes you feel sluggish, and then you can’t enjoy sex.


If you’re married, then there’s no such thing as “mine,” “his,” or “hers.” Everything is “ours.” Yes, couples may jokingly use those terms to describe “his” kitchen or “her” tools. At the end of the day, the stuff belongs to both of you, including the problems, happy times, money, and, if you have wall-crawlers, they belong to both of you, too. Is sharing natural?

Be your partner’s biggest fan.

Laugh. A lot.

Watch this! It’s worth every minute. I laughed so hard, I cried.

Are there other things you can do? Sure! For now, just do these 10 things and you’ll have a badass relationship.
