Patching up a lost relationship is very common, and contrary to opinion, a lot of “second time around’s” work outs smashingly. In fact, one of my favorite love stories is that of my mother’s friend, Bonnie. Bonnie reunited with her high school boyfriend and first husband, Will, when her second marriage fell apart, and ended up remarrying Will and staying happily married to him until the
BREAK UP ADVICE
Dear Dr. Romance: I read "Letting Go Takes Love" and it really spoke to me. I am in a situation and I was wondering if you could give me quick advice. I feel the need to let go of someone because he basically doesn't know what he wants. We have been going back and forth with the issue over a year now.
The holidays bring up a lot of mixed emotions in many people. Falling in love during the holiday is a wonderful experience because the "holiday cheer" is intensified as you're looking at the world through rose colored goggles. But if you're dealing with heartache due to a breakup or relationship strife, the holidays can be excruciatingly tough for you. Here are four answers to your holiday questions and worries that will help you make this time of the year more bearable for you.
There are two ways to go around the hardship of moving on -- suck it up or cry like a GAD patient over it... endlessly. I'm no connoisseur of love, but I have my own perceptions about the topic. Everyone's got a tendency to fall for another. However, to look for a partner (in my own opinion) should be a guy's thing -- whereas women are to wait and be found. Yes, consider yourself royalty as a lady -- be worked hard for.
Well, ladies, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s not a good sign if your man can only ejaculate while watching porn videos. But there is hope. If your man does not want to speak about his failure to ejaculate during sex, he may not feel you are strong enough to handle the truth and still love him. So our goal, of course, is to show him that you are strong enough to not only handle the truth but to make the necessary changes to solve the problems with your sex life.
The Cycle of Being Single, Dating, in Relationships, Breaking Up, etc. Every relationship status (e.g. single, in a relationship, separated, engaged, married, divorced) presents opportunities for us to enjoy and embrace. At different times in my life, I wasn’t able to fully enjoy all of my relationship statuses. When I was single, I wanted to be in a relationship. When I was in a not-so-good relationship, I wanted to be single. When I experienced a painful breakup, I wanted to be in a good place as a single person.
Let’s face it, there’s no good way of breaking it off with someone, but you can do your part to lessen the impact of the breakup. In dating scenarios that have lasted only a few months, you won’t need to go through a long, drawn out breakup process like you might in a long-term relationship, but you still should handle your love-interest with care. Here are some do’s and don’ts for breaking up nicely with a love-interest in the early months of dating. DO Show Compassion
If you are in the process of divorcing, the grief can be overwhelming. So, what is the best way to deal with the seemingly never ending assaults? The answer may surprise you.
Breaking up, separating or divorcing is devastating at any time of the year but can feels especially horrible when it happens during the holiday season. This time of year is filled with images of happy families and joyful, loving couples exchanging meaningful gifts and sharing loving moments. The juxtaposition of these images and your reality is jarring. There is also the expectation for you to attend all the holiday events and join in the celebrations. All of this can leave you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.
ISN’T THAT AMAZING? Getting a divorce is very similar to buying a set of Ginsu Knives. Those Ginsus are everything you could ever have hoped for in a set of knives. They can cut through a tin can and still slice a ripe tomato without shredding it. Isn’t that amazing? A divorce can do that too. It cuts through all the bullshit you’ve had to put up with and leaves you smelling like a rose.
This morning, as I was driving around trying to find a gas station that was both open and didn't have a three-hour long line, I started thinking about Hurricane Sandy and the devastation left in her wake. Normally, I only see natural disasters on the news, but this time, I had to look no further than outside the window of my home to witness Sandy's impact first-hand.
So you think you have found the woman of your dreams. All is going well. . .or is it? What are the signs that your woman might be cheating? Read on to learn about some things you can look for, or have already seen and have been ignoring or brushing aside. 1. Phone Calls Has she been getting more private phone calls lately?

Halloween is the cut off for breaking up - this is what I usually hear from individuals thinking of separating, divorcing or breaking up at this time of year. November feels too late; it is too close to the Holidays. And no one wants to be the jerk who leaves their spouse during Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah, New Years, etc. But in October: Holiday plans can still be changed, gifts have not been purchased, plane tickets have not been bought and there is the perception that there will be enough time for some hea
So you have been married for many years and you now find yourself in your late 40s and 50s in the unexpected situation of getting a divorce. When you got married you probably thought that this would be forever, and now you probably find yourself, hurt, angry and probably a bit stunned. I have a couple of clients in at this age who find themselves somewhat lost, somewhat bewildered - with their dreams of a perceived “stable” future as a pipe dream.
