Heartbreak. Rinse. Repeat.

I can still feel the visceral pain of heartbreak long after healing. The knot tightening in the stomach, like someone's fist is squeezing me from the inside out. The dark and busy mind swirling with the fantasy that I can't let go. The pain of my heart becoming hard and brittle and swollen shut. Although it always heals eventually, it's impossible to forget....more


More red flags!Red Flag He's convinced he's smarter than you. One well-known drug dealer told me he made more in a week than I made in a year. (Sadly, this was probably true). I reminded him that he was the one sitting in handcuffs in an orange jumpsuit, serving eight to ten in a maximum security prison....more

Good Guys Pretending To Be Bad Boys--And The Show Is All For Us Ladies

Some guys have gotten the crazy idea that being a good guy doesn’t pay off when it comes to women.  (I wonder where they got that idea?!)   Maybe it’s from years of failed attempts to get girls to like them by showing genuine interest and being a good guy.  Or maybe it’s because they are dropped regularly for narcissistic men, while they have been nothing but attentive, emotionally available, caring and present the entire time.  ...more

Healthy Relationships: What I Have Learned

I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine who was telling me about a friend of hers. This girl is beautiful, smart, and single. My friend mentioned the girl was having a hard time meeting a good guy, to which I replied, “well, that's just downright shocking.” Which is total sarcasm. It's actually not suprising at all. There ARE good guys, great guys in fact. But they are like blue whales or something. They hide and surface rarely. Finding a great man, with a great family, that treats you like gold is hard to find.The Problem...more

Love In The Time of Social Media

"Does it ever bother you that HE never changed his status on Facebook?" I remember being perplexed at the question. Though I don't obsess about the changes made to my boyfriend's Facebook profile, I know that he updates his statuses regularly, especially with updates for his business. I quickly realized that I was referring to the wrong type of status: "No, I mean his relationship status. You know it still says he's single? Maybe he didn't realize it, but you should bring it up anyway and see if he changes it." ...more

Happy Hour and Two Valiums Richer

Free drinks during happy hour always seems like a good idea in theory, but the concept of free, creates the illusion in your brain that you  should drink twice as many as you normally would because, well, hey, they are free! No bueno. Especially if you are going to happy hour with your somewhat friend, somewhat enemy, somewhat still half love, baby daddy. Perhaps I should rewind a minute and explain the current situation with Luc. Luc thinks I am manic depressive and can’t handle my really horrible manic episodes....more

Husband in Love with Sister-In-Law! [ ADVICE]

Hi Kelly,I am 31 and my husband is 36. We have been together 9 years and married for 6. He is my world and I don’t know where I would be without him. I have always been big and was teased all through school because of my weight. I had little to no self-confidence and couldn’t imagine anyone wanting to be with me. However, that all changed when I met my husband – he showed me what true love is and has helped me get some of my self-confidence and and self-esteem back. I would do anything for him....more

‎"Why I Am Glad to be Divorced Three Times and What You Can Learn From Me."

Yes, I said it. I am a thrice-divorced woman of 52 years. Should I just call it a day right now? After all, who wants to date, much less marry, someone who has three “failed” marriages, AND is over 50? Let’s not forget the fact that she has three children and she is unemployed.What’s a woman to do in this precarious situation? Watch, wait and know: Life will be good again! This was my exact situation November, 2010....more
