Your New Wingwoman

This one is just too good to pass up! Research has it that men are more likely to ask for a woman's number when she's hoofing it solo. We all know someone who has a dog, so on a fine day, offer to strike a chore off your  friend's to-do list and take her poodle on a man-hunting mission, er, a nice stroll.

Long Distance Relationship Boredom

Q: I'm getting tired of the set-up with my long-distance boyfriend, but I don’t know how to tell him. I feel like our conversations are dry and run in circles.

A: Apparently, long distance relationships call for more effort. That being said, if you want this to work out, you must be willing to put effort into making good conversation but also figuring out ways to do things together, even when far away, so you don't  focus solely on the conversation.
More to these, don't be afraid to confront your boyfriend with these issues. Be open about it. Before you can really work on your communication issues, you must identify what bothers you and admit to it. If you truly love one another, then there is hope.

Normally Attached Girlfriend?

I guess it's safe to say that every girl, especially those who are still in young adulthood, can relate to this and has tried acting up in such a way.

The Dangerous Effects of Breaking Up

Being sad isn't the only thing you have to worry about after a break up. Studies have shown that after getting out of a relationship, we're likely to make bad decisions.

Studies have shown that you're more prone to gaining weight after ditching a man, probably because you reach for food as comfort.  That said, you are suggested to hit the gym. Exercising releases feel-good hormones.

We tend to change our look post-breakup. Steer clear of salon.

This is when you're most susceptible to agreeing that fifth tequila shot or going home with the loner with a face tattoo. Go out with friends so they can look over you.

The Couple Who Has Staying Power

You may think that there's no way of telling how good a certain couple's relationship is with just a glance.

However, science begs to differ. Doctors at the University of Michigan swear you can.

They had an in-depth study that showed that couples who look similar are more likely to stay together. The reason for this is that it may indicate that the two have a genetic likeness, and that familiarity keeps them solid.

I Feel Bad About My Relationship. Is It Going To Get Better?

Q: I feel bad about my relationship. Is it going to get better? How do you know you are progressing into the good?

A: The answer to that question is three-fold. First, you know things are progressing into the good when you feel happier and more at peace no matter the situation.

Second, you have to do the emotional work, exert some effort to grow emotionally. You may use the relationship to help you at this, and let it be your practice ground.

Third, we all want to feel good all the time. However, there are those who believe that emotional work and relationships are only valid and worth having if there is pain. Not all pain is necessary. Things don’t have to be hard all the time. Truth be told, one way you know you are growing emotionally is that you can feel deeper joy more often than not.

“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”

I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.

Let our scars fall in love.”
― Galway Kinnell
