before I leave, I wanted to share with you one final list of what I’ve seen lead to happy relationships and happier people. May some of the pieces guide you toward joy as they have for me. Happy love and dating!
So often we doubt our gut feelings and ignore what we know is good in favor of testing the waters for what might be OK, what might be normal and reasonable and fine. This week, stop waiting for someone else’s OK and do what you know is right, ‘cause at the end of the day, the only one you can rely on to look out for you is you.
Dating these days is full of rule-bending as gender roles continue to bend themselves. But some of the old guard still stands, and we ladies often feel the pressure to be “ladies.” This week, why it’s in your best interest to be true to who you are and what you want, regardless of how it might make him feel.
In the age of Internet snark, kindness is something that seems to be reserved for animals and Bob Ross quotes, but there’s no more important trait when dealing with matters of the heart. This week, kindness and forgiveness are things we should all remember.
“It’s not me, it’s you.” That, or it’s my own deeply complicated emotional confusion that we probably shouldn’t delve too deep into. This week, it’s hard to know when to go easy on the other person and when to go a little hard on yourself.
He loves me, I love him not, he likes me, I like him too, he seems to like me but I can’t really tell and I’m not sure what to say or if I even like him or - WE GET IT. We’ve all been there. This week, when to pounce and when to retreat.
It matters who you spend your day with and the impressions you make on them… and who do you spend more time with than your coworkers. This week, why to go for the job and how to make sure you look bangin’ when you do.
With all the how-tos and what-ifs out there concerning dating, it’s hard to remember that relationships are supposed to be based on how you feel, not what to do. This week, it’s time to remember the rules of relationships are never black and white.
Is there anything worse than heartache? Arguably yes, but who can argue with the broken-hearted? This week, it’s time to remember that a broken heart doesn’t mean a broken path.
Relationships are often made out to be the root of all joy in life, and they sure can be great, but there are millions of people on this planet laughing and smiling all by themselves. This week, it’s time to remember your happiness is yours to create.
Insecurity is a terrible thing to feel, especially when you consider we inflict it on ourselves. This week, we investigate the inner tremors of two lost souls that might as well be every single one of us.
Life is about connection and contact and involvement so our obsessions with who we do and do not talk to make sense, but sometimes it’s important to step back and get a reality check. This week, how who we do and do not talk to makes a difference in our lives.
This week, whether you’re exploring inward or outward, whether you’re homegrown or worldwide, it’s important to remember that vastness of experience can come from anyway and it’s just a matter of being open to it. Dig in deep, or take flight, just make sure you do something.
