Advice For Relationship Mistakes

Hi Essy. I really need some advice. Now I saw what you said about the rule of thumb being three months, but my ex and I have been ‘dating’ for about three months and in a relationship for about 6 weeks. I made some major mistakes in our relationship, like the fact that he is always hanging around his female friends, or the fact that he let one female friend stay over at his house on her way to Saskatchewan to see her boyfriend.

"It's Complicated..."

I have been dating my bf since November 2010. He was the one who proposed me when I was dragging my relationship with my ex, and when I broke up with my ex, he expressed his feelings towards me. He respected me dating with my ex, and didnt push his feelings onto me, only until I had completely broken up with my ex. Just last year we have been continuously fighting over little issues, that can be easily solved and dealt. Most of the times I broke up temporarily but he convinced me and I convinced myself to get back to him. Sometimes he broke up too and i convinced to get him back.

Moving On After You Move On

I just wrote an article for YourTango.com, as part of their “Break Up With Your Ex” campaign. It got me thinking about how common it is for couples to break up but never really get over the relationship. They move out, but they don’t actually move on. How can you tell if you’ve moved on from a past love? Ask yourself these three things.
