At the recently-held PEP List at Solaire Resort and Casino, SmartParenting.com.ph asked single mom of three Sunshine Cruz what she looks for in a man. "Kailangan tatanggapin nya rin yung 3 kids ko, package deal kasi kami. Hindi nya kailangan mag-provide for the kids dahil I work naman, pero dapat responsible sya, at meron syang sariling trabaho. He should also accept me for what I am, for my past. Kailangan God-fearing. Gusto ko neat at presentable para magiging proud ako na ipakilala to my friends and family. At sana mas matangkad sa akin," was her reply. Sunshine, who is estranged from husband Cesar Montano, made it clear though that she is not yet ready to go on dates.

Low sex drive linked to woman’s heart rate A small new study published in the journal Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback shows a link between a woman’s overall sexual health and her heart rate variability (HRV), or the time that lapses between heartbeats. Researchers found that those with lower-than-normal HRV were significantly more likely to have difficulty in becoming sexually aroused than those with normal to above-average HRV. Low HRV is also associated with depression and anxiety. (yahoo.com)
