4 Signs to End a Toxic Relationship

Okay, I get it. Feeling lonely sucks! However, if the decision to stick with some one who treats you horribly or at the very least, does not treat you the way you should be treated (not everyone gets waited on and I understand that)- YOU HAVE MADE THE WRONG DECISION....more

Is Your Relationship Worth it?

I often find myself speaking with women, both clients and friends, who are wondering what to do about conflict in their intimate relationships.  “All we do is fight,” I’ll hear, or “he’s just a selfish jerk,” or other unhappy commentaries about what’s happening in the relationship. When I ask why they stay in it, the most common answer I get is, “Well, when it’s good, it’s really good, but when it’s bad, it’s REALLY bad.”...more

Why Are Holidays So Tough After Divorce?

It’s the Tuesday before 4th of July weekend. I am just done texting with a lovely man that I have been seeing over the past few weeks and learned that he has family in town and is not available to see me over the holiday weekend. I don’t know why I assumed we would have time together. Perhaps a picnic in the park and a walk along the lake. Perhaps some nice food, wine and conversation as usual. Perhaps some extra time in bed, in his arms. Perhaps brunch together the morning after. ...more

When My Boyfriend's Friends Hit on Me

I’m not generalizing, (I kind of am), but I can bet that at some point if you ever had a boyfriend, and he ever had friends, the likelihood that said friends would hit on you is very high. Like probably. Probably definitely. Most of the time it is completely harmless and can even be flattering, am I right ladies? A boyfriend’s friend hits on you and it could be all sorts of validation. I’m pretty enough; I’m cool enough; he likes me - I’m here to stay....more

How My CoWorker Single Shamed Me

Apparently single-shaming is an epidemic, and I have become its latest victim. At work, while discussing random mundane things with a co-worker I am not really friends with. You know that co-worker that always has something to say and you just pretend type on your computer while they stand at your desk yammering, in hopes that they’ll go away…that co-worker. During the one-sided chat, the topic of money jumped into the conversation, which went a little something like this: Me: I usually work 2 jobs.Co-Worker: Well yah, you’re SINGLE.Me: That’s not why. My work ethic-Her: My husband makes good money and I don’t have to worry about that.I don’t have to worry about whether there is enough.I guess being single equates to being a broke, lonely loser. Women are shamed for being single, while men are praised for it. I’m a lonely loser for being single, but a man my exact age, is a “player”. And the fact that I work, sometimes two jobs, and live on my own, pay all of my own bills, and am independent, means nothing because at thirty-six years old…I am single…and a loser, according to her.As soon as I caught onto the fact that she was single-shaming me, I felt this insane need to defend my singledom. I became defensive and kept trying to spew out as many reasons I could think of as to why I am absolutely fine as a single woman, but she kept purposely interrupting me. Every single time I tried to finish a sentence I started about how I am okay, she would cut me off....more

He Cheated, Now What...Does The "Cheater Gene" Really Exist?

  Cheating is super fun for some people. Like, “Thrill Seekers” who are literally turned on not so much by the act of cheating, but by the possibility of being caught while doing so. Cheating has gone on since the beginning of time whether it be on a test (which we all did in high school…damn algebra), or on our partners. Why do we cheat? Is there a true genetic predisposition to be a “cheater” or have we all just lost our sense of impulse control? First, we have to look at why constitutes cheating on your partner. Here is where things can get tricky because we all have our own interpretations of what cheating actually is. For some its dancing with someone that is not their partner at a club, or watching porn. Other people feel texting someone that is not their partner is cheating. Those acts are not even physical, but can be considered cheating. Then, there are the physical acts of kissing, touching or having sex with someone who is not your partner....more
