How to go from dating to a relationship

I was recently at a friend’s summer BBQ and I met a new woman. We chit chatted for awhile and then I asked if she was the girlfriend of the man she walked in with. Her answer was, “Yes? I think so? It’s been about three months of dating. So, yeah?” My take on her guess is, “Uh, no!” You should know when you’re someone’s girlfriend. Definitively. And if you don’t, you’re not. It’s that simple. That’s not to say that if you’re in a prolonged “just dating” situation, there’s no way to level up to “in a relationship.” Of course there is! That big step up is basically how all relationships start. Here’s how to make the leap if you’ve been in a “just dating” plateau for a while. Read more

What to do when you don’t have time for your relationship

Generally, my clients hire me to find them matches because they want love, but are too over scheduled to put in the legwork themselves. And I’m a great solution when it comes to outsourcing your search for the one. I can sort through eligible women and men, make certain that you’re not wasting time on people who don’t check off all of your non-negotiables, and give tips and tricks that will make a first date stand out. That definitely helps my busy clients find love. But, what I can’t help a busy person do is actually be present in a relationship. Read more

How to actually communicate in a relationship

One of my best friends always reads the posts on my sites... because she is the world’s best best friend... and she recently pointed out a content blind spot I never noticed. She told me that she loves how I always give the advice to communicate with your partner, but that I never really explain how to communicate. And that’s a really good point! I always beat the same drum and tell you guys how important communication is. But, I never tell you how to communicate. Well, that’s going to change right how. Here’s how to actually communicate in a relationship when you have an issue to discuss. Read more

3 Ways jealousy can actually be a good thing for your relationship

Jealousy is called the green-eyed monster. And that’s really accurate because in general, jealousy can be a total monster to a relationship and ruin a fantastic couple. But, there are some upsides to jealousy. And I’m definitely not talking about him being jealous showing that he cares. That’s totally bullshit. If he’s jealous, that only points to about his insecurity. Not his emotions for you. I’m talking about you being jealous and how, contrary to what it may seem, that could actually be a good thing for your relationship. Here’s how. Read more

How being unsure about your relationship’s future actually reveals everything you need to know

I recently heard one of my friends tell her daughter that if she’s unsure about her boyfriend being the one, it means that he’s definitely not the one. Her logic was when you know, you know! And if you’re unsure, you don’t know…therefore he’s not it. I have to say that I disagree with this logic in a major way. I believe in psychics and people who can see into the future, but I’m sure not one of them. And I bet you aren’t either. So, you being unsure about your relationship doesn’t really predict anything about your future relationship status. But, I do think being unsure can tell you a lot about your current relationship. If you’re unsure about dating your boo, here’s what I think you should know about your relationship. Read more
