Are You Misinterpreting Your Ex’s Actions?

Are You Misinterpreting Your Ex’s Actions?

Fear of rejection and worry that someone might not love you enough is bound to create some level of concern and stress during the ups and downs of a relationship says a new study published in the journal Psychological Science.

How Many Times A Week Should I Contact My Ex?

How Many Times A Week Should I Contact My Ex?

Question: Yangki, my ex broke up with me over six months ago because he said I was needy and clingy. I worked hard and have filled my life with things I love, and I'm very busy most of the time. We started chatting again a month and half ago, and things were great in the beginning. But for the last couple of weeks he's been telling me he feels [...]

Why She Doesn’t Want To Talk To You

Why She Doesn’t Want To Talk To You

One of my very favourite pastimes is watch people interact with each other. The other day, I was at a party and saw this really gorgeous woman flash an enticing smile in the direction on a group of guys looking at her as she walked in. A few minutes later, a well-dressed guy, a drink in hand, sauntered over to the woman and said “Hi”. I was [...]

Why It’s Taking Too Long To Get Back Your Ex – Pt. 1

Why It’s Taking Too Long To Get Back Your Ex – Pt. 1

This is probably the kind of article you will not enjoy reading because it's not about how many contacts you should be having with your ex, or what "right words" to say to your ex to make him/her take you back. And if you are one of "those people" who believes that others are responsible for the way you feel, for what they make you do, and for [...]

Born – Again Christian Men Are Boring

One of my friends just returned from Afghanistan. I love this friend so dearly, but he is really getting on my nerves. Every sentence he says has the word "Afghanistan" in it. Afghanistan this... Afghan people that...in Afghanistan they... blah, blah, blah. All the things he says are positive, interesting and educational, and there is no [...]

Signs You Or Your Partner Is Emotionally Immature

Signs You Or Your Partner Is Emotionally Immature

Emotional maturity is not something most of us consciously look for in a partner. For many of us, it’s not even a priority in the qualities we look for. We kind of take it for granted that if you’re attracted to someone, then everything will fall into place. If the relationship is casual and not expected to grow into something long term, [...]

Why He/She Treats You Like You Are NOT Special

Why He/She Treats You Like You Are NOT Special

Question: You write in one of your articles that “we teach people how they treat us”. I somehow get what it means but do not know how it relates to my love life. I’ve been in several relationships but all ended because I felt that I was doing all the work in the relationship with not much input from the men. What hurt me most is that the [...]

How Do You Know A Guy Is Into You?

How Do You Know A Guy Is Into You?

Question: I'm 28 and he's 37. We met at a bar. The chemistry was instant. I felt that we made a strong emotional connection and really saw into each other's soul. We talked about things we've never told anyone else. By the end of the night we were kissing and making out with some heavy hands on. We exchanged phone numbers and have been texting [...]

Do You Know How Your Ex Feels? (Pt. 1)

Do You Know How Your Ex Feels? (Pt. 1)

You may have read this many times in my writings: people want to be with us because of the way we make them feel about themselves. Selfish, you might think and that's understandable.
