Why Threats Will Always Ruin a Relationship

Today I want to talk about over-reactors. And I also want to talk about how, if you're with somebody that makes you overreact, then you need to re-evaluate the entire relationship that you think in your mind you may have. My mother was an over-reactor. She would fly off the handle at any given moment. You never knew when she was going to be calm, and serene, and loving. 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

Should his past determine your relationship’s future?

As you probably know, I’m way into the Bachelorette! I’m convinced Rachel is going to be the best Bachelorette of all time. I love her confidence, drive and suffer-no-fools attitude. Plus, I really like her age. She’s the oldest Bachelorette the series has ever had on and I’m so supportive of that. 31 is a fantastic age to meet the person you’re going to spend your life with. Much better than 24, in my opinion. And her race is a welcome change because #BacheloretteSoWhite. In the latest episode, one of Rachel’s suitors, DeMario, had an ex-girlfriend (or ex-friends-with-benefits…kinda unclear) come onto the show and reveal that he never truly ended things with her.

What to do if you think he’s starting to ghost you

When I’m in the very beginning stages of dating someone, I’m nervous. And sometimes it’s cute, fun nerves that come from young love. But, often the nerves stem from not being certain where the relationship stands and worrying about if he’s going to hurt my feelings. I know, not my typical schmoopy boopy take on love, but these feelings are just as true for me as my enthusiasm for love. What I worry about the most, and what I hear my friends worry about a lot, is getting ghosted. Ghost is the idea of someone you’re starting to fall for vanishing is tough to swallow. If you think you’re about to or actually are getting ghosted, here’s what to do. Read more
