In Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), members talk about going for a geographical fix. What is a geographical fix, you ask?

That doesn't mean that you shouldn't look at your surroundings or consider your choice of partner, but experience shows that you will bring yourself to that new city or relationship.
The new Rashida Jones film "Celeste and Jesse Forever" highlights a common phenomenon in the world of divorce: couples deciding to end their marriages in the legal sense but remaining each other's most significant others for months or even years to come.
Everything Russell Crowe does is intense, so why should talking to a woman be any different? He split with his wife in October—who he was with for 22 years; has he already moved on?
There are two ways to go around the hardship of moving on -- suck it up or cry like a GAD patient over it... endlessly. I'm no connoisseur of love, but I have my own perceptions about the topic. Everyone's got a tendency to fall for another. However, to look for a partner (in my own opinion) should be a guy's thing -- whereas women are to wait and be found. Yes, consider yourself royalty as a lady -- be worked hard for.

So, what is it? Have you been Naughty or Nice this year? The journey of divorce will undoubtedly bring out our Naughty, Nice and everything in between sides. As I reflect back on my year, although I am Jewish and Santa doesn’t exist in my world, I am careful to be honest about whether or not I have been naughty…or nice. The first year or two after divorce, the pull towards Naughty was really strong.
