Does He Treat You Like You Matter?

I've noticed that women seek attention but aren't really getting any in their relationships, be it personal, professional, parental or romantic. We want to be heard, to be touched, to have someone notice our little quirks but we can't outright ASK for it. Why is that??...more

How Men and Women Communicate

Someone forwarded this to me, and I thought it was cute. These are words or gestures women commonly use in everyday conversation with men. While the words appear to mean one thing, we know they mean something completely different. Enjoy! Men, listen up! 1. Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. 2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the football before helping around the house....more

A fool for love? In the real world, Mr. Big never proposes...

Technical difficulties (a malfunctioning laptop adapter) forced me off the computer for much of last week. So instead of spending mindless hours on the internet, I spent mindless hours watching movies. Sex and the City was one of them. I’d like to make a confession. I wasn’t one of the thousands of women who loved Sex and the City while it was on TV....more

Tiger Woods and his Woodies

It’s everywhere. It’s all over news. It was on Larry King last night. And I’m on the bandwagon with the rest of the world. I’m fascinated. I can’t turn away....more

Remembering it now.

"I'm not writing it down to remember it later, I'm writing it down to remember it now." -- Field Notes One of the things I learned at the start of this breakup was that my love of list-making and data-keeping was going to somehow help me sort all this shit out. And guess what? It did....more

Relationship sickening

Most of us don’t have to think to hard to conjure injurious feelings about a relationship gone bad. And while the pain and grief due to botched relationship vary from one individual to the next, we need to explore our baseline beliefs about everything rather than jump to overly simplistic ideology. “My relationship ended, it felt bad and now I am sick because of it,” is precisely the kind of unexamined thinking and superficial generalization that spins us into imbalance in most cases....more

Broken Spirit

Today is the day I realized what exactly a certain man has been doing to me for the past year and a half. Mind games. Keeping me where he wants me. Pretending. Saying all the right things. Realizing it is the middle of half the battle.  I've undergone the pain of a broken heart... many times.  The next part is getting over him,   and re-building myself. ...more

Makes Friends With Exes

I had coffee with an ex-boyfriend last weekend. My move featured technically two ex-boyfriends, though at the time I was in some pretty spinny denial about the one. Sometimes I think my life is kinda like "My Boys," but all the male friends are exes. That's an exaggeration, of course. No way I'm as cool as PJ, and I barely remember the last time I hosted a poker game. Sigh. ...more

Forgiveness and Why You Shouldn’t Hold A Grudge

“What they did was unforgivable”…..”They have to apologize first”…..”They ruined my life”…… Do any of these statements sound familiar as words you’ve once uttered?   My blog today is about the power of forgiveness, a force so strong that it will release the negative energy that weighs you down and leave you feeling lighter and freer.  Forgiveness is one of the best gifts that you can give yourself and I am going to explain to you why....more
