Remember Your First Love?

Dear YourTango family, Are you 25 or older? Have you ever been in love? Please take my 10-minute online survey by Friday, Feb. 8, and be part of a formal research project I am conducting at Dominican University of California. This is a voluntary and completely anonymous survey investigating the effects “first love” may have on future relationship satisfaction. Your participation is valuable and we appreciate your taking the time to help us make this project a success! We'll be sharing the results of the survey in a later posting here.

Therapy Vs. The Geographical Fix

In Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), members talk about going for a geographical fix. What is a geographical fix, you ask? It's the idea that if you're miserable in NYC, you can fix your life by moving to San Francisco or some other place.

And Baby Makes Three

  I used to think that if something didn’t turn out right (cake batter or laundering a stained blouse, say) the way to apply a fix was to add something.  More flour to the batter.  An applique over the stain.  I’d like to say those solutions worked, but we both know better. So why do we seek to add a BIG COMPLICATION to an already-complicated situation?  I’m not talking returning a dog to the pound because he digs under the fence.  Or changing your mind about that four grand worth of furniture.

Have No Life

Why do you feel so backward compared to your friends? Why do you get depressed when you look at what they’re doing that you’re not? “Are you going to the barbecue this weekend?” a girlfriend asks. “No,” you reply, not really knowing which barbecue she’s referring to, but since you weren’t invited to any, you’re not going anyway. “Oh, well that’s too bad,” your friend says, “We’ve been having barbecues all summer.
