Last November after my second break up in five years, I made the grave mistake of attempting to jump right back into the dating market. Old habits die hard; I have been perpetually in relationships since the age of 16, and I am now 27. That's a long timeframe of codependency, embarassing to admit, but I've grown from the acknowledgement of my mistake.

I believe that she, like many women, made destructive mistakes along the way that lead to the inevitable breakup. Kim Kardashian committed several “DIVA Don’ts” that we can all learn from so to avoid repeating the same fate!

You've been single for a while now, focusing on yourself and the things that make you happy.

I received the following email from a young man who had read one of my articles: "One topic that I feel that I haven't seen covered much is the issue of body-image related stress, anxiety and insecurity, and how to fight it.

This process has been devastating to my mental well being in the last 3 years.
Every month, I always enjoy reading Jake's column in Glamour magazine.
