What's Next....You Need to Decide!

So, we’ve traveled the road of the break up together from the feelings of being inadequate and let down when she says it’s time to just be friends, all the way through the roller coaster of single life and have found that perfect mate…now what?

In the last blog I talked about how to “stay hitched” knowing that being married is sometimes even harder than being single…it take perseverance.

In terms of perseverance personally, one of the things that I have been told by many… Continue

Dance With the One That Brought Ya

Now you’ve gone through the process of being single and have hunted down that next, great relationship. You make the commitment to sign on as a steady employee and say you won’t date anyone else. Of course, there is always a temptation to stay on the prowl.

Now that you know the secrets to finding a soul mate, why not see if it works again? What if the grass really is greener on the other side? Should I be ready if I get dumped again? These are all questions that will go through your… Continue

I know that our sex lives are usually kept well out of the public eye, but even though I feel like the H.S. gym teacher assigned to talk about it, we need to broach the subject when talking about break ups. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about what happens if your office romance goes array, you can read Penelope Trunk's blog if you want to know how that works.

As a young person dating, I… Continue

Single and Ready to Mingle...The Break Up Blog Continues!

You have to remember the "out of gas" trick!

After the grieving is done, it’s time to jump back on the market! Although I haven’t been without a job since I was fourteen and haven’t been dating for the last six years, after the shock of being dumped wore off, there was a certain thrill in the air for going out and doing some job dating.

It takes some confidence to get back out on the dating scene after a good relationship goes… Continue
