What To Do When You’ve Been Ghosted

Have you ever had someone stop talking, texting, calling, or Instagramming you out of nowhere? If yes, then you know how painful being ghosted truly is. For me, it all happened when suddenly he became busier than usual, spending more time watching basketball and spending time "working on himself." The moment before everything changed, I was starring right into his eyes, dead quiet, and was...

Needy Friends and Shallow Bonds

Let's talk about those friends who we've had in our lives for years but do nothing but use you and waste your time. I've known too many people who want me to give them my undivided attention and then after years of knowing each other, ask me what my last name is to tag me in a photo on Facebook, or ask me what it is I do at my full-time job, or even better suggest I become a blogger when HOLY...

10 Signs He’s Looking For a Way Out

When someone is thinking about breaking up with you, they will look for any possible reason to ditch you and run. At the slightest feeling of discomfort, don't be surprised when your sugar muffin is off running towards the hills, far far away from you because they couldn't speak up own up to what they were experiencing.  Maybe there is someone else, and they didn't know how to tell you. Perhaps...

Why Casual Relationships Don’t Work

Being unattached and keeping your options open is awful. There I said it. Casual dating is so prevalent in today's modern dating culture, but does that make it a good idea? In my opinion, which no one asked for, the answer is no. "You have soul ties with the people you sleep with, and even when you are no longer in bed with them, they remain in your head. Your thoughts are consumed by their...

We Were Young Dumb and Called it Love

Looking back and reflecting on one of my more serious relationships, I find myself astonished at how I reacted, treated people, and what I accepted from others during my early twenties. It’s been many years since my ex-boyfriend, and I broke up, but there are days I feel foolish for sticking around for as long as I did. By not walking away sooner, I allowed us both to feel trapped in what was...

The Emotionally Unavailable and Me, a Dreadful Love Story

I am trying to get to the bottom of something and I need your help. You see, its been years upon years of dating and ditching, loving and running, burning desire to, "Why does this feel like a one-way road and I'm hauling a massive load of crap with me?" I am trying to figure out, is it just me or is every guy I become attracted to emotionally unavailable? I was lying awake in bed last night...

It’s Been A While

A lot has happened since the last time I wrote a blog on this site. Much I can't even talk about. I guess that's why I've stayed away. It's been a while since I've felt like myself. Always working, but little time working on myself. Maybe that is why I feel so drained. Since a minor financial setback last year, I've been doing more freelance gigs to pay the bills, and I've been feeling stretched...

Embrace The Single Life

Being single is an opportunity to focus on work, spend time with friends and family, and learn to enjoy time alone. We all go through periods in our life where we find ourselves not involved in a serious or committed relationship. For me it feels like it's been a while and that's probably because it has been. For years, I've dated men who couldn't bring themselves to commit. Being single is...

How to be Successful Working From Home

When I started working from home back in April 2015, it was to my surprise the amount of adjusting and self-discipline that would be required of me to make this a successful venture. Working from my home office has always been a dream of mine; to have the flexibility and freedom to come and go as I please, make time for appointments, grocery runs, gym sessions, lunch dates, still while being...

How to Lose a Girl in 10 Days

Most of us have seen the movie, "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days", but have you ever wondered what it takes to lose a girl in 10 days? Many articles you read online or books you see propped up in local stores are often focused on what girls should avoid doing in order to keep a man around. When the roles are reversed and women have the chance to voice their own opinion on what turns them off-...
