"Your writing has change me for the better..."

By

I just wanted to say something to not only Charles, but to his many fans and followers: For quite a long time, I was having my doubts about my relationship and how much longer we were going to draw it out, so to speak. The connection we seemed to share was gone or at least out of sight. As I have read several posts, advice, suggestions and such on here, I have learned so much, changed much, and felt differently about how I see things. I love my other half very much, but I just didn't have faith in our relationship.

I do now though. It wasn't necessarily him that needed "evolvement" it was more or less me. We are better than we were and getting along so much, it seems surreal to me because it has been such a long time since we were like this. I wanted to say thank you because I now have hope and am happier these days. Even though this book was for the majority focused on bettering a man, it has bettered me. I am so glad I didn't completely give up and walk away from what I want to be my future.

Ask An Expert: Why Did He Stop Texting Me?

By

Dear Charles: I went on a first date with a guy and I thought it went well. He texted me about an hour later and asked if we could get together again and I said I'd like that. We playfully chatted via text for a few hours that same day. It's a week later, and I haven't heard a thing from him. Why did he ask for a second date and not set anything ... Read more
