Does drama follow you everywhere? It might be because you've never really worked on replacing bad behaviors with more positive ones. Don't let a communication gap end in a breakup: learn to argue fairly.
You're desperately in love with him, but suddenly, he seems disinterested. You haven't heard from him for a few days. You replay all of your recent conversations, reread your texts and wonder why. But none of this is productive. If he doesn't have the courtesy to let you know what's going on, you shouldn't concern yourself with him. And that's the first step to getting over him.

One of the most difficult concepts that a lot of my clients struggle with is the notion of gratitude. I talk about this in my best-selling book Goodbye Mr Ex, where I dedicate an entire chapter to it. And yet it is possible. I have seen women who have been gang raped, had parents or children murdered finally fall into the sweet arms of gratitude to finally find the peace they have been searching for.
When I was in high school, one of my favorite teachers told me that nothing worthwhile is easily attained. And I believed it — except when it came to men. Eventually I realized that some guys are special, and I shouldn't be changing them as often as I change my underwear. I would find a nice guy to commit to… but so many guys were nice. I decided I'd find a nice one until I found a nicer one. I'd become a serial monogamist.

We've all experienced it: the breakup hunger strike, a.k.a the revenge diet. Sometimes, you're so upset that you can't even stomach the thought of eating, nevermind actually do it.

WOW! That really hurts. When you have great expectations of a long term relationship and lasting love, you feel good about yourself and confident in the future. Then you get the dreaded Dear John/Jane letter or the pink slip at work and immediately go from the heights of excitement to the depths of disappointment. Being dumped can change your life and confidence in an instant.
We all have that one friend who went through the breakup she cannot stop talking about. If it was three weeks ago, you get it. It's still raw. If it was three months ago, okay. You figure she and her ex were together for awhile. She thought she'd found The One. Of course it still hurts. But after three months, well, it's time for your friend to shut up already, if you even hang out anymore.
It's embarrassing how many phones I've gone through because I threw them in a fit of rage over a certain guy. It's also nothing to brag about that I've gone through most of my glasses because I've smashed them to bits in anger over the same guy, then, because that wasn't enough, I jumped on his guitar in my favorite heels and destroyed it.
I was telling a friend about my blog recently, and while I was explaining why I’m so passionate about wanting to help women out there to avoid the heartbreak that I experienced during my single days, I had an epiphany. About all that heartbreak. I realized it’s actually a gift. You heard me right. A gift. Something to be cherished. Something to be happy about.
by Julie Robinson Jail was the furthest thing from my mind as I went about my day after Todd was a “no call / no show” for what would have been our second date. In fact, I didn’t give him much thought at all during the week after our aborted day in the park with the dog and a Frisbee. Is it possible I’ve actually gotten used to being stood up? Besides, he wasn’t as cute as I thought he would be based on his picture. Damn, he sure could kiss, though. Todd
Heartbreak lingers like a hangover. You wake up but don't want to move, and your head is spinning. Sometimes you need the greasiest pizza down the street has to offer, and sometimes you can't eat at all. The only thing that sounds appealing is crawling into a dark cave away from anything (which is everything) that reminds you how sh**ty you feel. We get it.
Monday night on The Bachelor, Kacie B. followed Bachelor Ben Flajnik to Switzerland in order to do two things.
