The thoughts stopped in a grinding halt. Just like that. Suddenly the broken record dialogue of automatic messages ceased. Either the tape was erased or the mental record player vanished overnight. No more would the movie repeat itself against my will. One year. Imagine that. It was hell.
DR DIANA KIRSCHNER
Dr. Diana Kirschner is a frequent media expert on all matters related to relationships. With her vast wisdom it was difficult to select which of her material was the most helpful for the single and partnered, most of what she writes is very helpful. For those who are new to her work, the following materials are an excellent introduction to her method and philosophy:
For a while now I’ve come to the conclusion that being rejected by the man I call Captain America was the catalyst to my becoming an amateur scientist on the dynamics of dating and relationships. Between absorbing the expertise and wisdom of Matthew Hussey, Debi Berndt, Heather Strang, Tamara Green, and many others I’ve grown a lot, learned a lot, and see significant others very differently.
Episode six is the emotionally-charged conclusion of the Love Life Makeover Challenge, and starts with a profound realization from Nadette: she doesn't just want all of the qualities she's looking for in a man. She wants one specific man... her ex-fiance. Will Dr. Diana Kirschner be able to reconcile them? Or are they just not meant for each other. Find out!
If your Beloved is not growing in his ability to love deeply and commit to you, you may find at some point that you want to leave. In Part 1 I showed you how to have the Probationary Talk with your partner/spouse to give him a heads-up that the relationship was coming to an end. But maybe it had no real impact on him. Perhaps he stonewalled, became overly defensive, or more distant. If you are in this position, there is a way to take a stand that both protects you from further pain and maximizes the possibility of his realizing how much you really mean to him. This is the secret I am about to teach you.
Episode five of the Love Life Makeover video series shows YourTango's Love Life Makeover winner, Nadette, testing out her new dating skills on a series of first dates. After ending a year-long engagement, Nadette is eager to move on from her breakup and get back on the dating scene. Relationship expert Dr. Diana Kirschner coaches Nadette on how to have a successful first date.
If things have been dragging along in a stuck or uncertain state and your Beloved has not responded positively to “The Talk”, you may want to put the relationship on probation. This means you will let your partner know that you may be leaving him so that he has a chance to work on things.
