I’ve been a dating coach for almost a decade. I’ve worked with men, women, gay, straight — hell, I even worked with a blind man once (he got a girlfriend a few months later). I like your lens..i believe love happens in any way, no matter its virtual or in real world. Sometimes even the photos are fake and ‘borrowed’ and god knows what else is not. Over time, your compliments will send your girlfriend’s confidence levels soaring through the roof. Your compliments will gradually help shed off any inhibitions she has about her body and appearance in general.
I recently just got dumped out of a 9 year relationship and been having a hard time moving on. I’ve been doing everything you explained not to do. Thank you for this article. Much love. woman, above your maturity level who dumped you and hurt you so badly. Sorry, but you’re not allowed to take it out on the ladies of the Hub.
Dory : Diane I read your response and cried! You described my relationship as if you knew me. Thank you for explaining it. Good article but, once again (as you did several times) I would say this is … Read more
In some ways, online dating and social media have leveled the playing field: Women can take charge of their dating and sex lives in ways they haven’t before. We can initiate dates or group hangouts just as easily as men do. The dating world revolves around making the right proactive choices – and this means that if you’re ready for a monogamous relationship, you have to be clear about your goals, both to yourself and prospective partners. At the time, I was unable to disconnect from this soul-crushing relationship. I just couldn’t find any detachment, even while things were getting worse. I knew I wanted out, but I couldn’t reach the exit. Phase 2 – 3 – 6 months and you still have no clue and have not talked about your relationship at all? You should step back and see if he’s being exclusive.
Believe me, heartbreak sucks! Until you have had that experience, it is hard to explain—just like trying to explain love in its entirety. Submitting to your husband doesn’t mean becoming his slave. It means recognizing his role and putting him first. Here is the situation: I know exactly what brought you here & why you are … Read more
Note: Though this article is directed towards Muslims, it applies to everyone in the realm of dating, those looking for love and coming up unsatisfied etc. Even if you post real pictures of yourself in your profile, people can look different in person. The trouble with online dating is that when you do finally decide to meet, there can be so much emphasis on the whole looks thing. People seem to think that if there’s no chemistry in the first few seconds of seeing someone in the flesh, that there can be no hope of any romance in the future. How sad.
d’writer: It’s true that lasting relationships depend on the people involved. But there are some challenges that only occur in LDRs, which can make a relationship harder for the people involved (than if those same people lived in the same place). Good luck on your search!
This is a load of crap. LD CD whatever love is love. I never intended to fall in love with someone in Australia. Living in the US makes that about as LD as you can get. However, the best part of this relationship is really what I just said. I absolutely never … Read more
Almost every girl has dated one: a liar, a cheater, or a jerk. And what’s worse, many women make excuse after excuse for taking their scoundrels back again and again. In fact, many people can come up with hundreds of reasons to take back a-no-good-man. Have you ever wondered why some people hold our attention in an almost hypnotic way, even if they don’t fit conventional definitions of beauty? A man can become mesmerized by a woman who displays that special something he can’t quite name. It doesn’t matter what she weighs or how old she is or what color her hair is—she has It.
In a recent email sent to me, someone was desperately asking me how she could help her partner overcome an addiction to pornography on the internet, and after some research online, I discovered an excellent product to beat pornography which I have recommended to her.
We vainly imagine this power of choice is the same as freedom, but if we have no basis on which to choose other than our subjective urges, transient likes and dislikes, and fantasies based on movies, novels and occasional glimpses at internet pornography, then choice is not freedom but bondage: … Read more
