A Good Night’s Sleep Helps Your Relationship

A Good Night’s Sleep Helps Your Relationship

If you ever needed another reason to cultivate better sleeping habits, here's one. According to a UC Berkeley study, a bad night's sleep negatively affects your conflict-resolution skills and ability to accurately gauge your partners' emotions. In a layman's language, if you'd haven't slept well, don't bring up a discussion to try to resolve a [...]

No.1 Relationship Mistake Men and Women Make

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. But for the sake of this article, I’ll go with the common notion that men and women “look for and find love". Other than the flawed approach to [...]

A Simple Change That’ll Transform Your Love Life

A Simple Change That’ll Transform Your Love Life

We know the odds - we've watched our parents, neighbors, grandparents, teachers, ministers, politicians, siblings and relationship coaches divorce - but for some reason we still think we can do things differently. Are we really that optimistic by nature or is it just some ill-fate determined to torture the human race? This is what I found out [...]

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 [...]

Why Do Men Emotionally Pull Away?

Why Do Men Emotionally Pull Away?

Question: Yangki, my situation is similar to Jillian's. My ex also initiates contact but avoids emotionally difficult conversations. It hurts that he shuts me out of his life. He was never one for emotional conversations. Whenever I tried to talk to him about things that were important to me, he’d say he is going through a lot at work and [...]

What to Do When Your Ex Hasn’t Changed – Pt. 2

Continued from Pt. 1 No. You are not supposed to take anything. Remember, no one is forcing you to remain in that relationship. If you are choosing to stay, it's YOUR choice. If you decide that you want to continue fighting for your relationship, understand that you will be the one required to change. I know, I know. Why should you be [...]

Facebook Unfriending Has Real Life Consequences

Facebook Unfriending Has Real Life Consequences

Unfriending someone on Facebook may be as easy as clicking a button, but a new study from the University of Colorado Denver shows the repercussions often reach far beyond cyberspace. "People think social networks are just for fun," said study author Christopher Sibona, a doctoral student in the Computer Science and Information Systems program [...]

10 Mistakes To Avoid If You Want Your Ex Back

If you still have strong feelings for your ex, it's only natural to want to fight to get him or her back. But contrary to what you might think, getting your ex to contact you, respond to your text/call, or even go out with you is not the hardest part of getting your ex back. The hardest part is making sure things start of with a better [...]

I Want Her Back But She Has Given Up On Us

I Want Her Back But She Has Given Up On Us

Question: I don’t want to give up on us but she’s pretty much given up on us. We broke up for the 4th time a month ago. Her main problem was that I did not have a steady job and hang out with my buddies and drink a lot. I’ve since found a steady job that pays well, I have a new apartment and don’t go out that much anymore. We stayed [...]

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 [...]
