8 Meditations For Crazy Daters

After publishing last week's Dating Don'ts about how not to get dumped, I was relieved to discover that I'm not the only person out there with PTDD (Post Traumatic Dating Disorder).

Dating Don’ts: How Not To Get Dumped

I believe I've made it clear how I feel about relationship advice. Mostly, I find it utterly unhelpful. I think that relationships are so complicated and personal, that advice is not one person fits all.

Why You Can’t Find A Good Man

When I was single, the reason I couldn’t find a good man was my habit of “wishful hoping.” I am long past that now, but as a coach I find “wishful hoping” is probably one of the key factors that make finding your true love take so long. “Wishful hoping” is very similar to being…
