  • User post: Considering Constructive Criticism from Your Partner

    Are you in a relationship in which your boyfriend or husband has criticized you about the same thing over and over again? Maybe he says that you don't make enough time for him? Maybe he says that you're always moody and he never feels as if he can do enough for you to be happy? Maybe he says that you never seem to be "in the mood?"

    It can be irritating when someone is constantly reminding you of your short-comings. But, no matter what he says, it's important that before you decide to break up with him because of these criticisms, that you take them to heart. Being in a relationship is a two-way street. No doubt that there are things about him which you have criticized - so remember that he has every right to criticize you as well.

    Ask yourself - Is there any merit to the things he says?

    Before you start yelling at him for the umpteenth time, take time to really think about his words. Although you may be busy, do you unnecessarily neglect him? Are you unhappy in general?

  • 3 Ways Technology Prevents You From Getting Over Your Ex

    Getting over a breakup has always been hard. But with the advent of technology, it's even more difficult to get over an ex. Here are a few ways people unintentionally delay their breakup recovery by clinging to technology, and tactics to avoid them.

    Re-reading every single email he ever sent. Some women do this every single day for weeks, months or even years; searching for a clue she may have missed, finding a sentence she may have typed that he misunderstood and tormenting herself with "what-if's" and "remember when's?"

    What can you do? Read the emails when you're in the initial "pity party" stage of your recovery and then delete them. Also delete the messages from your sent box. If you absolutely cannot do bring yourself to do this, then forward them all to a trusted friend to keep until a later date.

    Saving old text messages in your phone. Just like re-reading his emails, viewing his old texts over and over again will prolong your agony.

  • 7 Things to Consider When Your Ex Wants You Back

    Did your ex tell you that he wants you back? Before you go running back into his arms, take time to make some decisions and create a game plan to avoid falling back into old relationship habits.

    No doubt you have made some changes in your life since you and your boyfriend broke up. Perhaps you've started spending more time with your friends and your family. Perchance you've started attending religious services, or school. Maybe you've even started taking salsa lessons. The point is that you've begun a new chapter in your life and you may believe that getting back together with your ex (at his request) is a risky move.

    It is a risky move. Take that phrase to heart ladies!

    If you and your ex used to be joined at the hip, you ignored your friends and family or broke plans to be with your ex, they probably won't be too keen on the reconciliation. It's up to you to assure them that you plan to keep to your commitments to them. Promise your loved ones that you intend to retain

  • When Will I Get Over Him?

    A lot of people involved in a break up usually ask the question, "When will I get over him?" This is generally the advice that is given:

    - It takes half the time of the full term of the relationship to get over someone.
    - You can get over him in 2 weeks if you just follow a specific program.
    - You can get over him instantly by dating another man.

    I personally do not believe any of this to be true. Getting over someone is a personal choice. It shouldn't be "When will I get over him?" The question you should ask is "How will I get over him?"

    The "how" question is the most important question you can ask yourself. Asking "how" to get over him is the first step toward accepting that the relationship is over. It's the first step you will take on your journey toward creating a stable world for your mind, heart and soul.

    Once you ask the "how" question, you can bypass all of those "get him back schemes," and "get over him in 2 weeks" schemes and start exploring

  • Online Dating Questions.

    Here are some questions for both guys and girls:

    When you're online dating, do you look at all of the pictures first and then the profile? Or do you look at the main picture, read the profile and then look at the rest of his pictures?

    I wonder because when I began online dating years ago (thank goodness I am out of the dating rat race now, it's painful), a lot of guys emailed me that clearly didn't match up with my wants - or even their wants.
    For example, one man said in his profile that he absolutely hated cats. My profile indicated that I had two cats - and I mentioned them both in my introductory paragraph. But he emailed me anyway, saying that he loved my profile and felt that we were a great match. I read his profile, was a bit shocked, and decided to respond, anyway. I told him that I had two cats and asked if he was suddenly okay with feline companions. He wrote back indicating that he really did not read that far into my profile and wasn't interested in meeting someone with

  • When is he your boyfriend?

    When is he your boyfriend?

    Just a question - when do you know the guy you are dating is officially your boyfriend?

    Do you ask him?
    Do you assume that after a certain amount of time it's solidified?
    Do you just randomly call him your boyfriend when introducing him to friends/family?
    Do you wait until you've met his family?

    When do YOU know? Tell me your stories!

  • 5 Ways to Find a Date Before V-Day...

    You've just finished spending the holidays alone and now Valentine's Day is sneaking up on you. It's almost not fair. Sure, spending time with your girlfriends on Valentine's Day can be satisfying, but perhaps you would secretly prefer to spend the evening with a member of the opposite sex? Here are five proactive things you can do to increase the chance that cupid's arrow will pierce your heart before Valentine's Day:


    Volunteer - If you have the time, volunteering can be a great way to meet someone kind, giving and selfless. If you don't want to get dirty raking leaves or picking up trash, you can use your education to mentor teenagers, to promote literacy or to organize charity events. Even if you don't meet someone, volunteering is a great way to network, make new friends and, of course, help your community.


    Join your College Alumni Association - Even if you move to another city or another state after graduation, your college more than likely has an alumni group in your
