Most dating advice on the web is awful. Everyone who’s been in at least one relationship thinks they’re enough of an expert to offer their thoughts, but much of this so-called insight” is regurgitated by people who have no business offering advice in the first place. I’m currently going through therapy to help me overcome my issues with my Narc. Was involved with him for one and 1/2 years and I tell you this has been in the most devastating relationship. I WANT to recover and be back to myself again, but I’m having a hard time accepting that this person was a fraud. More than anything I’m having to look at my part in this and how it happened, because I DO NOT want to attract this type of person in my life again.
Why do we allow ourselves to settle for less? Why do we find ourselves in relationships in which we are doing all the work to keep it alive? It’s time to put in the hard work, but then to trust that we are also worth being worked hard for. We deserve to be loved just as we are giving love, and in romantic relationships, this … Read more
This potential situation is one of the most common inquiries my patients have brought to me over the last four decades. Despite the media’s tendency to define them in simple terms, I am continually surprised as to how many different variations of this dilemma actually exist. The ways in which they are strikingly similar is in the fact that two women are in some kind of relationship with the same man. When you give a man space, you’re allowing him to miss you and realize why he loves being with you. It is absolutely true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Plus, once your guy realizes what life is like without you, he’s going to appreciate you even more.
It is also a mistake to forgive a sociopath for the wrongs that they have done to you. They are well aware that it is human nature to want to forgive others. They will exploit this need to forgive, and use it to continue the cycle of abuse. To forgive this type of individual is to invite them to hurt you again.

I have a neighbor like that. He lies about the people on the street, gets them fighting with each other and acts like he’s not involved. Anyone who finds him out becomes the enemy and he spreads gossip about them until they’re shunned by the others on the street who are too dumb to figure it out.
Very good list…someone mentioned that most movies trend to be more atheist friendly and many mock Christianity. Well this is to be expected (as Jesus warned his followers) Anyone who believes in this day and … Read more
This morning, I was stumped for a topic. I wanted to take a crack at an article using an angle that I hadn’t written before, so off I went in search of an idea generator online. I found a few blogs and sites that talked about idea generators but they generally pointed me to the same two sites. One issued only one word everytime you clicked a button. The other posed questions meant to stimulate feelings or memories. I’m sure both are probably good but they weren’t helping me. If a man’s past includes cheating, it would make little sense to trust that person if they view pornography or attend adult clubs. If he considers infidelity a mistake, then it would be wise for him not to feed the sexual appetite. Otherwise, he could be a ticking time bomb displaying little ability to completely control his sexual desires.

It can be hard to trust your intuition and instincts when so much of popular culture implies that sex is Level 1 in the mating game, a stepping stone toward commitment and bonding.

Visit the AARP state page for information about events, news and resources near you. The interested mix of this situation is that I feel like I would have the willpower to say NO! if it were just my own desires play, but as soon as that peer pressure element is added to the mix, I feel like my willpower is gone. It amazed me to realize how easily influenced I am by my peers, even at age 27. We hear about it so much as youth, but I don’t think I’ve heard much about it with regards to later years.

Assuming we are not talking about other women or partners, I have to begin by referring back to an idea I referenced in a past article, When Your Girl Wants to Get Married and You Don’t. He had no idea what happened and was just following me, yammering in annoyance. Apparently we can sort of cloak out reponses by drawing the emotions in, and I think sometimes they just don’t register the intensity they can cause. Last but not least take your time and get to know people. Use the same commonsense you’d use with meeting a stranger anywhere else.

There is a segment of the population who has completely given up on dating and is happier for it. Sometimes this only a temporary measure for a few weeks, or sometimes this is an indefinite amount of time that could last for months or years. Nevertheless, many singles are happy being single and consider a dating hiatus to be a wonderful respite. It is not that these singles have not tried, but dating has not met their needs for one reason or another. Some people choose not to date because relationships are not their thing.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I don’t know why your ex blocked you on FB. It is impossible to know if someone is truly a narcissist or just an asshole. I’m not a licensed therapist, and a lot of people are quick to diagnose when they shouldn’t. Your ex may not be a narcissist, she may be a sociopath – and while there are similarities – sociopaths rarely look back. A sociopath would cut ties and not give you a second thought.
