Don't look for someone because you need to feel complete; that goes for both sexes. Make sure each of you is truly over your exes - at least 1 year apart for every 5 married. Know each other very well before even thinking about sex. Expect the unexpected. Guys, compliment your lady when you first see her each day. Don't over compliment, it's sounds phony after a while. Be spontaneous. Pay attention to everything! Communicate often and communicate well. Don't say 'I love you' if you don't mean it! Expect your heart to be broken, and if it's really meant to be then it will. View Thread

It might sound cliche, but so many couples I know fight because they don't actually say what they are thinking or feeling because they assume the other doesn't want to hear it. Once those lines of communication are open, so much can be accomplished productively in a relationship.View Thread
He will never be yours, even if he does leave his wife for you. Your actions say nothing good about you. You will have a lot of explaining to do if you ever start a new relationship with a single man. Don't be surprised if you can't find one.View Thread

Here is my story: I am a single mother of three adult children. The oldest and youngest are female and my son falls in the middle. There ages are 31, 26 and 20. While I have always had a good relationship with all my children, lately I have been having a problem communicating with my son. I first need to give a little background. My son moved out when he was 19. After my oldest daughter moved to SF about six years ago, I followed. I moved from the LA area to SF with my youngest daughter to really save her from herself. She was cutting due to some unresolved issues with her father and I needed to remove her from the painful reality of his neglect. My son seemed to understand. His father and the rest of the family live in the area and so I did what I thought I needed to do, even though I cried myself to sleep for months after leaving. It is still hard. So recently I decided I would like to return to the surrounding area and excitedly told my son so. His response was less than I hoped. I told him how great it would be we would be so close and able to see each other and the family and his response shocked me. He said " we will never be close like that again". And other than my birthday and Mothers Day will not answer my texts or calls. I am dumbfounded! We have always been close and this hurt me too the core. I still call and text even though he doesn't answer, but I am at a loss as to how resolve this situation. I love him so much and I have never dealt with this type for behavior before. Anybody have any advise? Is it middle child syndrome his age both? We have always been very close and this is heartbreaking!View Thread

I got involved too soon after my divorce. I refused to let myself grieve my ended marriage of 22 years. The guy was a "dry" alcoholic who had been sober for 25plus years. He seemed sweet and nice and turned out to be soooooo self centered and so experienced with women that I got scared off. I didn't want to share myself with someone who had had the experiences he obviously had, a wife who died of cancer, a son who committed suicide, an abusive childhood, and many years of adulation as a revered college professor. I soon felt like a student who was being urged into a mold I didn't fit into. I didn't share the same financial pages as he did-- I waics very responsible with money, he tried to be, but I don't know if he was. He seemed so unrealistic about things like that. Liberal to my conservative, not real family oriented, afraid of the word "old", and not wanting a committment. Too much heartache for me. Religion was too mystic for me.. I am more fundamental that that. Too many differences, but a strong physical attraction. Heart-breaking situation. I am glad to be clear of it, yet miss him dreadfully!!View Thread
Fine... My wife liked dogs, ... TV, Solitaire, movies, racy novels, better than me. One might infer that I am a total bore. Clearly my wife thought so. So.... today, she continues to enjoy these things and I... I am no longer there. I now have a lady who likes me... and we can sped 5 days on a little sailboat together... straight.... no breaks... well... short breaks when we go on dock and she uses the ladies room.... I don't go in there with her. And after that she still can happily spend the next day with me....and it's still not too much.
SO.... let him have the dogs.... you go do the things you love to do, and you will meet people that love to do the same (that's how I met Milady) and you will be happier.
Choosing a therapist is an important decision because entering therapy is a big investment; it takes energy, time, and money. So, take the time to find someone right for you. You can find some referrals by asking your doctor for recommendations, calling your local psychological or social work association for names, or going to the American Psychological Association psychologist locator (I give contact information for this in my tips). Once you have some names, ask the therapists you are considering questions on the phone, such as:
Are you licensed and how long have you been practicing?
Do you have an area of specialization? What is it?
What therapeutic approach do you usually use; and, can you explain it to me?
Offer the person a thumbnail sketch of your problem and ask if they have experience treating this kind of issue. Also ask how they would treat your problem.
If you are satisfied with the answers, then schedule an appointment. At this meeting, the therapist will ask more detailed questions about your problem to help determine how to help you. This is also a time for you to evaluate how comfortable you are with the therapist. Having a good rapport with the therapist is essential to effective therapy; so, if you are not comfortable with the person, then consider whether you need to find another qualified professional to help you. A therapist can be excellent and still not be the right person for you.View Thread
