From Baggage Reclaim Blog and brought to you with commentary by Lauren K. of Love Kudos 

quality controlYesterday in part one, I talked about the tricky issue of being too picky, not picky enough, or perceived as being picky when you are reluctant to be involved with people who detract from you, where others are OK with it. Ultimately, the truth is, only you know how picky you’re being and as you may have already learned, you can only live by your own values, not others, as they are personal to you. When people question what you’re doing, they’re talking about stuff from the perspective of their values.

Some of the worst culprits for this are mothers and I’ll cover this in a whole other post as it deserves a post or several of its own!

Online dating not working for you? Try a Love Doll

Written by Lindsay K. of Love Kudos

The National Geographic Channel has a series regarding Taboos. The episode called Strange Love, explores four taboo love options: arranged marriages in Nepal, polygamy, negotiated infidelity, and Love Dolls.

The last taboo perked my ears and as I watched the part on love dolls, a cloud appeared above my head that said, "Really?"

A True Love Affair, the Old Fashioned Way (Caribou & Chloe)

Written by Lauren K.

"The Chase" still has merit in modern day courting. I would like to explore an unlikely case study of two dogs that are dear to me and completely unequivocally in love: Chloe and Caribou*. Like young lovers that met in grade school, Chloe met Caribou when he was six weeks old, not potty trained, and completely inferior to her in his barking, jumping, and fetching skills. Since she was 13 months senior to him, she taught him everything that she knew and exhibited an immense amount of patience when he messed up or played a little too rough with her.

First Impressions in Dating: Teeth and Smiles

Written by Lindsay K. of Love Kudos

One of the first physical characteristics I notice about a person is their mouth: specifically, their teeth.  During my sophomore year in high school, I met my first love during lunch break.  Unfortunately he had one major defect, a rotten front tooth that was brownish green.  I was able to look past this physical defect and I dated him for almost three years. However I have to admit, initially I was attracted to his white smiler older brother.  However, "EE, " (for the two letter e's in the word teeth) as my friends and I nicknamed him, had a much better personality and charisma than his cuter older brother.

My dad describes my ex as a great guy you'd want as a neighbor, but not dating your daughter.  About six months after we broke up, he finally got fixed that brownish green tooth! His next girlfriend really lucked out.
