I want to reassure you: you’re not the only person who’s had to go through this.
It’s not whether you are good enough for the love of other people, it’s whether they are good enough for your love, time and attention.
Part of the reason why people — guys, especially — have a hard time getting over break ups is because love isn’t just emotional; it’s also chemical.
Well it’s not very often I get to intercede in the premise of a bad romantic comedy… But this is easy. You don’t.
You just have to change up how you are playing the game. Instead of looking for folks who are just up for sex that night, prioritize meeting people who are just awesome.
So I’m not gonna mince words here. I’m not entirely sure that your friend is as good of a guy as you say he is.
I’m going to give you some advice which is going to save you and your girlfriend a lot of pain and conflict in the future: you need to ditch the whole “she was cheating on me emotionally” angle.
Hoo boy: I feel for you.
This one’s easy. You feel the way you do about all of this because it’s not actually about your ex. It’s about you.
You should be proud of yourself for what you have achieved. Which is why it’s kind of a shame that you’re hobbling yourself with these self-limiting beliefs.
We need to separate out learning to manage your anxiety with what actually happened in your relationship.
My stance when it comes to claims of abuse is simple: believe victims, because society as a whole tends to blame victims by default.
There’re few things that’re more frustrating than a relationship that seems to go cold for no reason.
You need to take a break from all of the desperate “Maybe THIS will fix me! OK maybe THIS. Ok, maybe THIS!” and find your zen.
Frankly there’re few dating strategies that make me twitch uncontrollably more than “playing hard to get”.
Take a deep breath and just let this one go. And if you’re feeling a little insecure, ask your boyfriend for a little sweetness and reassurance.
