Anyone going through a breakup or a divorce experiences an emotional roller coaster. It is necessary to grieve the death of the relationship. To fully heal, one must go through all five of the grieving stages, anger, denial, bargaining, depression and acceptance. There is no set order or time limit for each stage of grieving. You may go from one to another several times before getting to acceptance. There is also no set time. It may take one person a few days to go through this process, while it takes another person, years.
One of the most common complaints I receive in my relationship counseling work is, "we hardly ever have sex."

On Saturday May 26, 2012, my oldest daughter graduated from high school and she's off to college in the fall, leaving the nest. This summer is probably the last time she'll be living at home for the rest of her life. Sure, she'll come home over the holidays and summer break, but most of that time is spent going out with friends and catching up on the happenings in their lives. From this point forward, my baby is going to be out in the real world on her own. Am I nostalgic thinking back about the time we spent together? Heck yes. Am I sad? Yes, but excited for the adventure she is about to embark on. Am I worried? No way! Let me share with you a true story involving a little boy and a little girl that happened many years ago but still moves me to tears when I tell it.

Try adding some of these scenarios to your lovemaking & change up the sexual pattern you may have entered into with your partner.
What is it that compels us to stay in relationships that aren't good for us? There are many reasons, but more often than not, it's a combination of several motivations. The first step towards making your situation better is in understanding why you're making the choices you're making to begin with.
Can you relate to this story? When Genevieve, a Rapunzel, was younger, she had a long string of intimate relationships. She didn't see it as love sabotage. Sex was a natural part of her dating life.

If you walked into the room completely naked, your partner STILL wouldn't pay attention to you! This is how it feels for many people.

By Sujeiry Gonzalez, Author of Love Trips: A Collection of Relationship Stumbles, for GalTime For many women, the first week after a breakup goes a little something like this: Hide under the covers. Sob uncontrollably while watching reruns of "Sex and the City." Play "I Will Survive" to feel empowered. Sob uncontrollably because Aretha Franklin has a man, while you are single again.
