How to Deal With Your Ex

In coaching, I hear this on a regular basis: “I hate my ex.” “I can't believe I had children with this man or woman.” “I can't believe I have to deal with them for the next X amount of years.” I hear this absolutely non-stop. Let me tell you, it's not that I don't understand it at all. It's almost like a cruel gift that keeps giving. Read more

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
