BodyTalk piqued my interest and curiosity led me to try it out. When BodyTalk practitioner and life coach Heather Strang offered a “Manifest True Love” workshop series in Portland, Oregon it was a gamble that paid off. Fear began to unravel and the truth started to pierce holes in my fear’s arguments about life, love, and people. Vulnerability started to emerge and it gave me many moments of feeling unsafe.
HIGH SCHOOL RELATIONSHIP
Just walk on by. At least he said that before I moved away for college. Four years of forlorn was enough. I must have unconsciously known that to break a bad love pattern required exiling myself from Aidan. I wanted to turn him into a memory of a love that never was. Better yet, a person that never was in my life. An extreme solution broke a pattern and resulted in a split.
At 13 I met my childhood “puppy love”. His name was Aidan and he resembled the teenage version of actor Chris O’Donnell. Aidan was a competitive skier, brilliant, British, and had baby blue eyes and razor sharp smile a la actor Michael Fassbender.

I'll start with a word of warning. Young Adult is being marketed as a snarkier version of Juno with alcohol on its breath. Don't fall for it. This is a dark comedy about a seriously troubled, emotionally stunted 37-year-old woman who peaked in high school. So yes, it's exactly what I needed to see when I was teased in high school by the popular kids. (You're about a decade late, Diablo Cody.)
17-year-old Justin Bieber recently made headlines when he spoke about his girlfriend Selena Gomez and his desire to be a young dad. The general consensus seems to be that marrying young, whether you're a famous pop star or not, is a bad idea...But is it? Yes, Hollywood marriages are notoriously short, but that doesn't mean that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's relationship is doomed to implode. If they're lucky, they might just end up like one of the celebrity couples below, who only need to look across the dinner table whenever they want to reminisce about their high school sweethearts and first loves.
This scenario has probably happened to most people at one point in their lives. How many times do we hear of couples reuniting at a high school reunion 10-20 years later? That lost love that got away because the timing wasn’t right. Is it really bad timing or is it really just the wrong person? How Do We Know?
A new study may have you regretting losing your virginity in the backseat of your high school boyfriend's car. The latest research claims that women who have sex for the first time in their teens are more likely to get divorced.
