Why Maintaining Contact With Your Ex Is Crucial

Why Maintaining Contact With Your Ex Is Crucial

Communication is one of the top causes, if not, "the" top cause of break-ups. It's no surprise that "communicating with your ex" is one of the biggest challenges post break-up-- and also the most polarizing when it comes to how to get one's ex back. Some people believe no communication will make their ex miss them and want to come back. Others, [...]

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 not the kind of article you will 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 [...]

Help! I’m Aloof And Emotionally Unavaillable

Help! I’m Aloof And Emotionally Unavaillable

Question: I am the aloof type through and through. I know this about myself, but then I don’t see it as some sort of game. I truly just enjoy my ‘me’ time and have become quite a bit more introverted as I’ve aged. Some people cannot handle that and attempt to cling or get jealous of such things as my wanting to stay in and read a [...]

How You Know Your Boy/Girlfriend Is Insensitive

How You Know Your Boy/Girlfriend Is Insensitive

I work with many men and women trying to overcome needy and clingy behaviour. In my book, anyone who recognizes that they are needy and clingy, and works to get rid of this self-sabotaging behaviour is to be admired.  Not many of us know we are needy and clingy, let alone can accept that we are. If anyone even remotely suggests that we are that [...]

Have you ever been out on a date and your date was rude to a service person and even though you were first so strongly attracted to him/her, the attraction suddenly went down a few notches?

Don’t Dump A Commitment Phobe Before You Read This!

Don’t Dump A Commitment Phobe Before You Read This!

Having personally suffered from severe commitment phobia for many years, I know that being in love with someone who is afraid of commitment is not fun at all. But does someone's fear of commitment always have to be the end of a relationship? In real life, some people are not really meant to be together, and sometimes when you've tried [...]

How Can I Hold On To My Boyfriend?

How Can I Hold On To My Boyfriend?

Question: Thank you for everything you're doing. This is by far the best advice site and blog on authentic relationships. My story in brief is that for 3 years I have been hiding my true feelings, lying about who I’m with and where I’ve been and generally playing mind games with this one man whom I love very much. I just don’t know how to [...]

How Soon Is Too Soon To Say “I Love You!”

How Soon Is Too Soon To Say “I Love You!”

The exchange of the words "I love you" mark a big milestones in any relationship.  But both men and women sometimes find it difficult to say "I love you" because they are afraid of what the other might say. A client told me he had tried many times to say the words but somehow could not bring himself to say them. When he finally said "I love [...]

Then No.1 Reason You Act Needy and Clingy

Then No.1 Reason You Act Needy and Clingy

"I'm giving him/her his/her space" is the excuse most men and women give for not contacting their ex. This so overused excuse is usually qualified with "I don't want to come across as needy" or "I don't want to push him/her away." On a superficial level, it sounds oh-so caring. You care so much about your ex that you do not want to "bother" [...]

What Topics Should I Talk About With My Ex?

What Topics Should I Talk About With My Ex?

Question: I followed your advice and kept in touch with my ex. A couple of weeks ago we got back together but for only a few days. The same old pattern of drawing close then breaking up happened again. This time I was the one who broke up with her when I found out that she was going to LA to meet someone from her past. When I asked her about what [...]
