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 [...]

What To Do When Your Ex Is Playing Mind Games

What To Do When Your Ex Is Playing Mind Games

A client asked me the other day, “What would you do if your ex was playing mind games?” The “Love Coach” in me wanted to go straight to “advice mode” but then I remembered that I wasn’t always a love doctor. There was a time in my life when I did some things that were not so “loving”, and I write about this in my Dating Your [...]

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

Will you scare off your ex? The answer is yes... if you are thinking about it constantly.

How To Make Yourself Special To Someone

When it comes to relationships, there will always be another man or woman waiting to take our place. That's something we have no control over. The secret to making sure that you remain the man or woman he or she wants to  be with is to set yourself apart as one-of-a-kind. Whether one admits it or not, we human beings take “pride” in [...]

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.

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 [...]
