When I was single, I remember those days of wondering when the heck was I gonna find my man? I was so SICK and TIRED of being alone. I hated the feeling of those lonely Saturday nights by myself (and Friday nights, and Sunday nights… and…) I had so many doubts that I’d ever even find a good man at all and fears of being alone forever. That maybe, by some weird freak of nature, I was “meant” to be alone. Can you relate?
FIND TRUE LOVE
First off, let me say that in all my years, there has never been an old girlfriend/wife that I’ve ever taken back, but one. My philosophy – tried it, it didn't work, move on. Then came my last girlfriend. We met in the fall of 2007. I was enamored from the first sight. Yes, I thought she was physically attractive, but her inner beauty glowed brighter than ten suns. I fell in love.

Look at how you handle the challenging times in your life. When the heat is turned up in your life, how do you face it? Do you: get angry? become sad? hide out in the fetal position? numb the pain with food or alcohol or sex or… pick-your-addiction? whine? complain? blame others for your circumstances?
Our culture tends to have a fairytale vision of what marriage should really be.

We live in an age where we have grown accustomed to instant gratification. From instant coffee, to instant fast food, to instant messaging, we have become pros at pressing a button or two and having our every wish fulfilled.

Many sites, even those using fancy algorithms to match you with your soul mate can help you meet and date dozens of people, if that's all you want. They can even land you a warm body you may believe is your life partner but chances are, you still won't find the right person for you.
In ancient times, Oracles were feared and unapproachable. Only the holiest of men could seek the guidance offered and then share it with the common people. I am SO glad things have changed. These days, anyone can learn to use the intuitive tools that used to be hidden from sight.
Hungry for inside information and seeking guidance, people are still flocking to Oracles, psychics, and readers to help them find love. In ancient times, Oracles were deeply mysterious and kept separate from the common people, many times only accessible to the highest ranking priests and officials.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Out with the old and in with the new,” and when it comes to love it couldn’t be more beneficial. There is an exchange of energy that occurs with every person we connect with, and when we are intimate with someone that energetic exchange becomes even deeper. When we hold onto the past, it's as if we have ropes of energy holding us back and keeping us from moving forward toward our desired goal. When we do not release our exes, it's as if we are in a tug-of-war with the past. This is true whether or not we are “carrying a torch” for someone.

If laughter is the best medicine, Mary Ellen was seriously overdosing. She had always had a habit of laughing when she was nervous, and first dates were nothing if not a hugely nerve-wracking experience. “I laughed too hard at their jokes, and I giggled inappropriately,” she recalls. On one date she’ll never forget, she laughed out loud when her date told her about his dog getting hit by a car. “I can’t explain it,” she winces.
