5 Things Your Ex Does That Don’t Make Sense

5 Things Your Ex Does That Don’t Make Sense

Why did my ex do this, and why is he/she doing that, are questions almost everyone who leaves a comment on my blog, or signs up for coaching wants the answer to.

No.1 Relationship Mistake Men and Women Make

I want to say right from the beginning that I’m one of those people who believes that we don’t “look for and find love" but rather, the love already in us attracts the love of another.

4 Steps – Maintaining Contact Without Scaring Off Your Ex (Pt. 1)

How To Get Closer To Someone You Love

“My problem is that I love him too much!” “What do you mean?” "He’s taking my love for granted because I’m always there. May be I should play hard to get”.

Do Guys Lose Interest If You Reveal Too Much?

Do Guys Lose Interest If You Reveal Too Much?

Question: I read your blog: The "Rules" and Playing Dating Mind Games. While I agree with some things you say, I do not think that women should be open and forthcoming in the first few dates.

How To Respond To Your Ex’s “No Contact” Rule

You decided to end a relationship that was not meeting your needs, was emotionally suffocating, deeply troubled (too many arguments and fights) or simply moving too fast in terms of the level of closeness or commitment you are comfortable with, and the next thing you know - your ex has completely cut you off.

I’m Losing My Boyfriend – What Should I Do? Pt. 2

Continues from Pt 1 When we’re threatened with the possibility of losing someone we love, we often don't see the things in front of us including how our own words and actions may be more self-destructing than helpful. This is especially true when you feel like what you worked hard to build (and keep) is slipping through your fingers and [...]
