Break-ups, Fix-ups, and a Bad Taste in your Mouth

It’s been a few months since my breakup and I just can’t get over my Ex. I think of him constantly and I miss him terribly. I know getting back together isn’t an option (he ended it and it was ugly) but there’s a part of me hoping he comes to his senses and calls me. I’m sorry you’re suffering, and I’m sorry to say that there are many others in the same boat. The good news is that you can get off that boat and start sailing better seas on another- if you choose to do so. It’s important to remember that the man you’re missing isn’t the Ex you left. The guy you dated, spent holidays, and shared vacations with isn’t the same guy that ended your relationship. For whatever reason, he changed

Coming Out and Keeping In

Mindsets and MasterCards

Valentine’s Day is a yearly reminder that I’m single, frustrated and just can’t seem to find the right kind of guy to love. I don’t see this love thing happening for me- no matter how much I want it. Valentine’s Day is about all sorts of love. Since you don’t have romantic love this year, focus on the other things you love and love you back. I’m sure there’s a lot of love there, and make that love your spotlight for the day.
