Why Usain Bolt Dumped Girlfriend

Usain Bolt ended his six-month relationship with a Slovakian fashion designer in order to focus on the upcoming Summer Olympics.

News reports suggest Bolt’s breakup with Lubica Slovak, 28, was because of his desire to repeat his double-gold/world-record Olympic performance in London. The Jamaican swept the sprint events in 2008 and set the world marks in each race. A source close to Bolt told The Sun, “He will have plenty of time for relationships. At the moment he’s concentrating on his running career and doesn’t want anything to distract from that.”

Slovak emigrated to Canada as a teenager and later moved to Jamaica after she took a vacation there. She was introduced to Bolt by reggae singer Tami Chynn, a mutual friend.

The sprinting star was criticized in his native Jamaica when a picture of him kissing Slovak, who is white, appeared in a local newspaper. A cartoon accompanied the photo, in which Bolt was seen running past a black woman with “local” written on her shirt and into the arms of a “Slovakian fashion designer.”

The island’s second-largest newspaper published letters to the editor criticizing Bolt’s choice in women. Countless Internet comments angrily reacted to the Bolt-Slovak relationship.

Two Steps That Can Save Your Marriage

By: Rori Raye

When I got married over twenty years ago, I thought the heart-wrenching days of dating angst were over. And yet our initial wedded bliss gave way to disconnection. But I was able to save my marriage and create a stronger, more connected union than ever. Here’s how:

Forget About Him

Putting yourself first is the key to inspiring a man to put you first. Of course, it’s impossible to do this when you are using so much of your time and energy to please your man and give him what you think he wants. Which leads me to the next step that saved my marriage and can save your marriage.

Make Yourself Happy

What makes a good man happy is to make US happy! It’s worth repeating: good men like to make their women happy. Period. They like to give presents, they like to take you out, they like to be faithful to you, and they like the way it feels when you feel good about yourself when you’re with them.

They like the way it feels when you let them know you feel good. It makes them feel like men, and it makes them happy. So if you want to save your marriage, stop exhausting yourself trying to change him and instead focus on making yourself happy first.

If you expect that he will do his best to make you happy without demands but by just letting him know when he DOES make you happy, you’ll be on your way to more love than you ever imagined.
