Dear Dr. Romance: She Needs To Get Her Act Together
How can I sign up for your Happiness Tips newsletter?

Dear Dr. Romance:

How can I sign up for your Happiness Tips newsletter? I want to read "The One Who Got Away." Also which article would you recommend reading in my case? I met a wonderful lady who loves dancing like I do, and for almost eight months she has been getting her house ready to sell so we can go RVing and dancing in our twilight years. She is not very close to leaving, it is really tough on her after living many years in the same place. Its also tough on me waiting for her to get it together. So I'm looking for some articles to help me cope.

Dear Reader:

You can sign up for the newsletter  here, or send your email address to tina@tinatessina.com.  Articles from previous newsletters like  "The One Who Got Away"  and "Attitude Adjustment"  will help you deal with your lady friend's reluctance.  "Couples Can Cooperate for Success" can help you both communicate more effectively.  "The Magic of Reassurance"  will show you how to reassure your lady and calm her fears.    "Practicing Patience"  will help you gain the patience to give her the time she needs.  Love Styles: How to Celebrate Your Differences contains exercises and information to help the two of you understand each other better.

For low-cost counseling, find me at LoveForever.com
