Breakups can be brutal. Here’s what you need to know!. We all know breakups can be incredibly painful. As a clinical psychologist who works with high functioning people, I know that if you’re an intelligent and persistent person who likes to make things work, it can be mind-boggling to encounter a situation where no matter how much you want to make things work, the only thing to do is actually to give up and move on. Of course, it is almost impossible to make a breakup easy, but at least there are some strategies that can help make the process a little easier, and potentially help you to be better prepared to make good, healthy choices when you’re ready to date again.
Dating and a Fishy Indulgence
You and your partner might have been together for a while, and at this point, the two of you may be doing several things together. One of the things that the two of you do together might be that you eat dinner as a couple. However, when it comes to the meals that you eat, you might like to eat fish, and your partner might not like fish at all. This might cause an issue as you might want to have a fish dish now and again, and you might be wondering how to compromise with your partner on this. So, what do you do if you like to eat fish, but your partner doesn't? How do you approach this type of situation? Though the answers to these questions can be different for everyone, here are a few suggestions.
Too Picky On Finding Love
Would you date a man who dressed a bit off-trend? How about one who was shorter than you? A bald man?. If one of your current life goals is to find a life partner and you said no to any of the above questions, I encourage you to reconsider your answer.
Questioning My Self: Why Am I Still Single?
“Why am I still single?” It’s a question I hear a lot in my practice. As a clinical psychologist in New York City, I work with many successful clients — while they’re really good at getting things done in their professional lives, their dating life is either nonexistent or chaotic.
A Chance With Nice Guys
Have you ever felt frustrated that you seem to get hopelessly “head over heels” for unavailable men, yet find yourself hopelessly impervious to the advances of nice guys who are genuinely available and ready for a serious relationship? Would you like to change this pattern so you can finally start enjoying a great relationship and quit wasting time with men who play hot-and-cold with your emotions? Keep reading to see how the science of psychology can come to your rescue!
More Chances In Finding The One
Tired of being the bridesmaid and not the bride? If you know you want a relationship that leads to marriage and you want to find it in the next year or two, it’s time to rethink your dating strategy.
Dating More Has Surprising Benefits
Disclaimer: This post only applies to people whose true wish is actually a committed relationship leading to marriage — and within that group, specifically heterosexual women. In heterosexual relationships, it’s often the man who pursues the woman, and my female clients tend to want a man who pursues them, rather than the other way around.
Budget Your Date
You work all week, looking forward to the weekend so you can spend some time with your other half, but then, the weekend hits, making you realize that you are out of cash. What will the two of you do? You can't go out to a restaurant without money, and you certainly can't go to the movie theatre. Well, the answer to this question is that you might need to use a little creativity.
Being Open with a Beau
If you have a crush and wonder if the person that you are interested in feels the same way, your best line of defense is to pay attention. Sometimes, the idea of approaching a person that you are crushing on can be nerve-wracking. What if he or she doesn't feel the same way? What if you are misreading the signs? How do you know when it is the right moment? Well, if your secret boo is doing any of these things, then it might be time to talk to him or her.
Dating Someone with a Past
Some people get used to having bad relationship after bad relationship. Therefore, when he or she finds a good person to be with, it is difficult for him or her to adjust. This may sound funny, but it is true. Some people just aren't used to having a healthy relationship. Now, just because he or she isn't used to this type of relationship doesn't mean that he or she doesn't want one. The trick is changing one's mindset to adjust to it.
Finding Your Perfect Partenaire
Several people go into the dating game with a list of attributes that they think the other person should have. Is that wrong to do? No, not really. However, the truth is that what connects two people together usually isn't as simple as the words on a list.
