My first crush

BY DONNA HUSSEY-WHYTE | Monday, October 20, 2014    

IT was probably in high school or primary school that you caught your first crush bug -- this one person who made you so nervous and tongue tied that you fancied yourself in love. But, whether you call it love, infatuation or a mere crush, one thing is certain -- you never forget. This week All Woman asked readers to share their first crush experiences. Lloyd S, 41: My first crush was when I was 15. I was in love with a 17-year-old. It was devastating because we became best friends instead ... Read More

(L-R) Carlo
Redwood and

THE men at LIME are proud to wear pink this October, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to increase awareness about the disease, which affects both sexes. This week, the men encourage women to get their regular mammograms and breast self-examinations done, while acknowledging the work being done worldwide to curtail the disease. Women aged 40 and over should make an annual mammogram a critical part of their health regimen, as they are at the highest risk. But women are presen ... Read More

I hit him in the face just to get a reaction...

Monday, October 20, 2014    

VIOLENCE should not be condoned in an intimate relationship, whether it is perpetrated by the man or the woman, and no excuse should be accepted for any abusive behaviour. But one of the reasons intimate partner violence continues unabated is that the victim, out of fear or a desire to protect the partner and preserve the relationship, remains silent and suffers physical and emotional pain. "You could either stay in the abusive relationship and suffer the physical pain and emotional hurt, or y ... Read More

Men: What we hate about you

By KIMBERLEY HIBBERT | Monday, October 20, 2014    

WOMEN will gather in groups and single out men for abuse, criticising everything from their lousy pay cheques to their pot bellies or even their performance in bed. All men are dogs in some women's books, and they use this to justify male bashing and angst that never seems to ebb. But it's not often that a man will share the same complaints. Indeed, when he does, it's seen as an affront to a woman's sensibilities. But, like women, men have grouses too, and this week they're taking the no-fear a ... Read More

So my ex is getting married...

With Wayne Powell MA Counselling Psychology Relationship Counsellor | Monday, October 20, 2014    

Dear Counsellor, I am a 25-year-old Christian. I have a great job and am currently finishing up my degree. I was in a relationship with my high school boyfriend for eight years. He was my best friend. We helped each other overcome our obstacles. We were engaged for two years and were supposed to get married. But he called it quits two years ago, and said it wasn't me, it was him, and we both moved on. Just recently I got an invitation for his wedding this year. It has not even been a year sinc ...

What to do when your child is being bullied

BY DONNA HUSSEY-WHYTE | Monday, October 20, 2014    

Model: Bryanna Wright

A few months ago, in June, police were called in to investigate a complaint that the mother of a child at a prominent prep school in St Andrew attacked a 10-year-old boy and threatened him with death after learning that the boy had been in a fight with her son at school. The angry parent walked into the school devotion and pulled the boy from the group to a car park, where he was told that if he continued to harass the other child, he would be killed. A parent came to the boy's rescue. Allegat ... Read More

Wifie's revenge

By GEORGETTE FRANCIS | Monday, October 20, 2014    

Dear Reader, It's our fourth year of marriage and I'm feeling decidedly hostile and distinctively homicidal towards my husband's phone. Actually it's the alarm that I'm having murderous designs on, but then again, it's that stupid little Nokia phone that houses that demon spawn of a noisemaker. Seriously, how many times do I need to have my sleep-induced cosiness (read: coma) and peace of my Lisa Frank dream about prancing around in a rainbow garden with pretty pink unicorns and fluffy bunn ...
