American Idol = Love Doctor?

And like Jessica, it's easier to believe that story than to choose a better way.

If and when Jessica's ready, I hope she'll audition for Idol again next year. America loves a good comeback story. And if she applies her lessons learned, she might actually make the top 24. Not because she's the most talented or prettiest. But because she worked her tail off, learned from her mistakes, and came back stronger than ever.

Just like the single woman who realizes that it's not enough to just sit back, watch American Idol, and wait for Mr. Right to knock on her door (And let's be honest. If he did, she'd think he was a stalker and call 9-1-1!), I hope Jessica summons the strength to dig deep, reflect on what she did well as well as what she can work on, and invests in herself in the coming year so that she can emerge better than ever.

That's when the real magic happens. And that's when she changes her story.

Do they teach this stuff on The Bachelor?

Having grown up somewhat entitled, my mother believed that as long as there were checks left in the checkbook, she had spending power. And while my family was firmly middle class, many of my childhood memories ... Read more

"The Force Wasn't With Us" — A Star Wars Breakup

By

In 2004, I launched The Breakup Chronicles because I had just had my heart smashed to smithereens for the umpteenth time and needed to figure out why I was getting love so wrong, so consistently. The common denominator was most definitely me. In writing about some of my key relationships, I needed to figure out what I did wrong, how I contributed to the demise ... Read more
