It’s a tale as old as time. You just broke up with a boyfriend, husband, or long-term partner. Whether you thought he was The One, or the one for the year or month, it never feels good.

How To Love Yourself Through Dating Disappointments and Heartbreak

Dating is risky. It can lead to heartbreak, anger, sadness, and bring up all kinds of feelings of rejection. Feelings that run deep in our subconscious from childhood wounds. It can trigger us in ways that leave us wondering why we even bother looking for love in the first place when it just seems so freaking hard at times. The most serious risk: what if it doesn't work.

Why the Idea of “Having It All” Is Damaging Us

As I scroll through my Instagram feed I see beautiful glossy images. Images of gorgeous women and their boyfriends traveling to exotic places. Wearing clothes I wish I had. Images of moms who seem more organic than me. More "together" than me. Images of homes that are freshly cleaned and styled just right. Images of entrepreneurs who have their side hustle going strong. I follow these people because these are areas of life ...

I know how it feels to be crying my eyes out, yet again, over someone that I've tried to get over but still loved.

10 Different First Date Ideas That Don’t Involve Happy Hour

Whenever I was asked out on a first date, it always seemed to be an endless array of happy hour drinks at bars I'd been to multiple times before. Don't get me wrong, this can be a lot of fun, but it's nice to mix it up and not feel like you're gaining the freshman 15 by eating and drinking all week.

You Can Just Peel The Potatoes.

"You can pray to God while peeling the potatoes. Or, you can just peel the potatoes." My sister said this to me over the phone, as we were busy catching up from her trip to Nepal. She lived in Nepal for five months, and was telling me the lessons she learned from the people she described as the happiest people in the world. Of course, I wanted to know 'the secret'. I told ...

7 Lessons In Love I Wished I’d Learned Sooner

“These are for you,” he said, handing me a dozen red roses and a teddy bear before leaning in to kiss me. My first boyfriend, Danny, was standing in the doorway in full army fatigues.

Someone in the Dating Cocktail Lounge recently posted that they're struggling with coping through dating disappointments. Dating can be difficult, it's hard putting yourself out there, getting excited and then feeling let down. I started talking to a guy off bumble and we were in the middle of planning a date for that evening when he just went silent. Never heard back again. The idea to do it that day was even his ...
