Love Yourself

I can see you rolling your eyes! I used to get so annoyed about this topic when I was single. I always believed that I loved myself. I bought myself nice clothes, got my hair and nails done, and went on nice trips. I thought I had this nailed. I didn’t have a real understanding of what it meant to love myself though. I had nice clothes but I put up with the most ridiculous treatment from the men I dated. I worked long hours and couldn’t set appropriate boundaries to save my life. I never understood that being able to love myself would bring me closer to what I wanted most in life, true love. I finally learned how to love myself though, and I’m convinced that doing so is essential if you want to have a good relationship. These suggestions can help you have a much better relationship […]

Break the Pattern of Being Unavailable

Are you keeping yourself single by choosing to date an unavailable man? It’s very common to believe it’s the man who’s unavailable when really, its you! I know it seems wrong, like blaming the victim, but think about it this way: if you’re REALLY available for a relationship, why on earth would you consider dating an unavailable man ever? You wouldn’t! You’d be out of there the minute you knew he was unavailable, right? Yet I see so many women put up with unavailable men for months or even years and then blame the guy. I actually used to do this a lot, so no judgement here, just realize that it does happen and it’s up to you to change it. If you’re wondering if this applies to you, take a look at these 5 steps that make up the pattern: Step 1: You find a guy who: Won’t meet […]

Intimacy While Dating

I don’t need to tell you that men want sex. Physical intimacy is usually a part of a romantic relationship and we all like it that way! If you want more than that from a relationship, make sure you’ve discussed it before things go too far. Most men will want to make out first and ask questions later, if ever. Try to not find them wrong for feeling that way. This tendency is responsible for the existence of our species and it’s not likely to change anytime soon. Instead, learn to understand and work with it. You both have a right to feel as you do and want what you want. If you want a long term relationship, make sure you’re dealing with a man who shares that desire and discuss it openly. As you increase the physical closeness in your relationship, make sure that you’re also increasing the emotional […]

Is He What You Want?

If you’re in a relationship and having some doubts, I’d like to ask you a question that my coach used to ask me all the time; “Is he what you want or what you think you can have?” This is HUGE because if you’re anything like I was, you can just get so tired of dating that you settle and get a bit lost. I was in this situation a few years ago. I’d been single for years and then I met someone who wanted to stick around. I thought it was better than a constant string of first dates or month-long relationships, but I knew it wasn’t what I really wanted. I was always trying to decide if I should stay or go and I was really struggling because I didn’t want to get back out there and start all over again. Have you been there? My coach would […]

It’s Okay to be Weird

Back in the day I used to host bible studies at my house. Many of the people who attended were couples. There was one couple that stood out to me. They were newlyweds, weren’t in the best of shape and dressed kind of funny. Ok, really funny. I often wondered how on earth they found each other, but they were really sweet and affectionate with each other which was super adorable. I used to look at them, as a single person trying to date and wonder what I was missing. I was “normal” compared to them, in good shape, younger, dressed better, but I wasn’t meeting anyone! Despite being the strange birds that they were, they were completely in love and were the exact right kind of strange for one another. It seemed like a miracle to me. I remember thinking about it a lot. As they say, there really […]
