At least half of all the emails I get from wonderful women who are over 40 and looking for love are about the same question you’ve probably been asking since you were a teenager: “Is he in to me?” Often the answer is: If you have to ask, he’s probably not.
Dear Dr. Romance: How do I make him understand? So my soon-to-be-ex is still in the house as well as myself! This is not working! He keeps trying to make things better, but I don't feel anything for him anymore. He has been better to me but is still very rude to our son and says hurtful things to him! He also says rude things about teammates on my sons ball team and doesn't think he is being rude and doesn't care if other people hear what he says! I can no longer deal with this!
There is a quiet despair among so many loving, smart, and deeply caring parents. They so desire to see their children manifest their greatness, to use their intensity well instead of having it go awry, and too often they see their best efforts to inspire respectful and responsible choices slip away to further levels of frustration.
Does it seem next to impossible to see eye to eye with your partner these days? No matter how hard you try to reconnect with them, you just can't seem to get the love you want. Have you ever set up arrangements for a family member or a close friend to watch your kids while you plan a romantic weekend with your husband? Have you ever gotten him season tickets to his favorite sports team or went out of his way to make his day? Or perhaps you've spent a lot of money on clothes and makeup to help you feel and look sexy?
We like to think that the holiday season is a blissful time for all, but for many couples, it can create extra stress to an already rocky marriag
Imagine that you woke up this morning, and everything you owned was gone. Your clothing was gone, all of it, except for what you were wearing. All your food was spoiled and rotting. All of your furniture was destroyed, unusable, and unsalvageable. All of those little things you cherished through the years, photos, paintings, memorabilia, all gone. All of your children’s toys, schoolbooks, games, all gone. There was no heat, power, or water in your home, if you had a home left that is.
When we hear someone upset or complain, or when someone comes to us with a problem, it's easy, and actually pretty common for us to want to fix the problem for that person. We don’t want to see that person suffering. But in reality, more often than not we actually end up doing the person a disservice by coming from this focus of wanting to fix their problems for them.
Being single during the month of December can pose challenges that you don't have to think about at other times of the year. People who are newly single may struggle as they try to figure out what to do when there isn't a built-in place to go for the holidays.
Studies show that when a woman is feeling good about herself then that sexy energy will radiate out to others around her. Feeling sexy comes from within. Being happy with whom you are and knowing that you are the sexy wife that your husband has dreamt of is the best gift of all. This holiday give yourself a sexy make-over then wrap yourself in a bow and present yourself as the gift. This is sure to not only delight him for the holiday but all year long. Each woman is different in what makes her feel sexy and how to get her mind into it.
Several of my dating coaching clients have contacted me this week feeling crummy about online dating. They are tired of the emailing and the men disappearing. They are bored with guys who don’t follow through or ask for a second date. As a dating coach for women in midlife, I totally understand how disheartening it can be. I myself went through this at 40 to find the man who became my adorable husband of 12 years now.
