How To Stop Over Analyzing Your Relationship

How To Stop Over Analyzing Your Relationship

An attractive co-worker or even perfect stranger says “hi” to you and you automatically start obsessing and analyzing every little body language. Why did she touch her hair; what does it mean if she also uncrosses her arms; is there a future for the relationship etc. A guy you’ve gone out with only three times isn’t acting like his [...]

Why She’s Angry When You’ve Done Nothing Wrong

Why She’s Angry When You’ve Done Nothing Wrong

There are so many things she admires about you and it's obvious that she's proud of you, but she also finds you so frustrating. Whenever she tries to engage you and draw you out, you get that "deer in the headlights" look. She blow ups, explodes, starts screaming and yelling, then calms down and tries to have a nice conversation, and all you can [...]

How Do I Start A NEW Relationship With My Ex?

How Do I Start A NEW Relationship With My Ex?

Question: Yangki, I really want to buy your eBook because I love your articles and your approach to love and relationships. Can you clarify what you mean by "starting the relationship with your ex all over". My ex and I were together for 4 years. We've broken up several times but always found ourselves back with the other. I have no doubt she [...]

How To Do 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. If the thought of contacting your ex or taking any action to get back with your ex brings up fears of driving or pushing him/her further away, you are right to be worried that you will scare and/or push him/her further away. I know it's not the most [...]

How To Do Contact Without Scaring Off Your Ex Ex (Pt. 2)

How To Do Contact Without Scaring Off Your Ex Ex (Pt. 2)

In Part 1 (I highly recommend you read it before continuing to Pt. 2), I explained that: 1. There is nothing wrong with wanting to contact your ex, or even wanting to spend time with him/her. 2. What scares off an ex who still wants to be in contact with you is NOT that you are contacting him/her. What scares your ex is the unhealthy and [...]

Help! My Ex Is Afraid Of Getting Close To Anyone

Help! My Ex Is Afraid Of Getting Close To Anyone

Question: Yangki, my ex is emotionally damaged and afraid to get close to anyone. She had a rough childhood with an alcoholic mother and father who wasn't around. When she started pushing me away, she said she was scared I'd leave her. I told her I love her and wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. But then I found out she was seeing [...]

‘I Love You’ May Not Always Mean ‘I, Love You’

‘I Love You’ May Not Always Mean ‘I, Love You’

Just mere semantics, right? Not so fast. According to relational communication expert Sean Horan, an assistant professor at DePaul University in the College of Communication, affectionate behaviour is not all that it seems. "Gestures such as hand holding, kissing and cuddling could be indicators that your partner is mad at you," explained [...]

What NOT To Do When Your Ex Wants Space

What NOT To Do When Your Ex Wants Space

When you are dealing with someone who is self-destructing, it's hard not to be sucked into the toxic interaction that is typical of this attraction. And what do I mean by typical of this attraction? The self-destructing person is attracted to you because you have that "strength" that the self-destructing person feels he or she does not have. [...]

Is There An Empathy Problem In Your Relationship?

Is There An Empathy Problem In Your Relationship?

One of the things I've said over and over again is, ladies don't just complain and nag your man about the things he's not doing right, ignoring the things he's doing right, however small. And guys, don't assume you know your woman and dismiss her complaints as a sign that she doesn't know what she wants. She knows what she wants and that's for you [...]

Does Someone Using “No Contact” Love You?

Does Someone Using “No Contact” Love You?

Anna Wrote: I am a little confused about one part in your article. In one of the paragraphs you say that people who use 'no contact' are not using it because they love you... Yet in the same paragraph you also say that these people are not out to hurt the person they love, which implies that this would be done to a person they love... So then, if [...]
