If only moving on was as easy as the memes say…
Regardless of who ended the relationship or how it ended, people frequently struggle with the common problem of finding themselves alone. Too often you find yourself exercising bad behavior to mask the pain you’re in:
So instead of falling into the above bad habits, try some of the suggestions below to keep yourself from plummeting into despair and making your breakup easier to deal with.
Unless you are the type that have relationship drama every other week, your friends will happily be there for you to talk to. Not only will talking with your friends lighten the internal weight you feel but they can provide perspective about the relationship that you couldn’t see.
Breakups can be stressful and can send you spiraling out of control, but if you maintain a healthy routine you are less likely to fall into some of the bad habits mentioned above. That means maintaining a regular sleep pattern, moderate exercise, and good nutrition (sorry mac and cheese and Haagen-Dazs).
Maintaining these healthy habits may be difficult at this time in your life but they are crucial to your mental and physical health in getting over a breakup.

P.S. If you want a true “Life Long Love Affair” with a man, this will show you how . . .
After dating a pond-load of toads you finally think you’ve found your Prince Charming. He’s witty, charismatic, attractive, and attentive.
Sure there are a few things you wish he wouldn’t do, such as his tendency to exaggerate about his job and financial status. He does seem to be condescending to your best friend. And, he brags about himself… a lot. But hey, no one is perfect, besides he always showers you with compliments, making you feel special.
Sorry to break it to you, but you may be dating a narcissist.
According to the Mayo Clinic, people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) often monopolize conversations, belittle or look down on people, have a sense of entitlement, and insist on having the best of everything. NPD, which tends to affect more males than females, varies from person to person on a spectrum. Some may be on the extreme end while others are in the middle.
Of course, not all undesirable behavior can be attributed to NPD. But if your new dating prospect exhibits several signs of the disorder, you might want to put the brakes on advancing the relationship.
Ben Michaelis, Ph.D., lists the following signs to look for to help protect yourself from being used and abused by a narcissist.
Being in a stable and healthy relationship is a wonderful thing.
But if you depend on your boyfriend for too much, it can create tension between the two of you. Here are four signs you might be too dependent on the man in your life.
If you only feel good about yourself when a man tells you how smart, pretty or well-dressed you are, you need to change your thinking process. You need to learn how to feel like an amazing woman without a man telling you that you are. You should be able to look in the mirror and see a beautiful, confident woman staring back at you. You should be able to celebrate your achievements without anyone else telling you how great you did because you should already know that. It’s nice to have other people acknowledge the things you’ve done, but you should never rely on them to make the things you’ve achieved meaningful or to be happy.
How many women have asked this question?
“So what’s the deal with this guy? One minute he shows me love, and the next he’s cold and uncaring. Why is he blowing hot and cold all the time? Should I hang in there or I’m I just wasting my time with this guy?”
Ladies, you’ve probably been, or are currently in such a situation. You like a guy but he is sending you all these mixed signals. Is he the type of guy who is emotionally unavailable and is in the process of figuring things out, or is he just a time waster? We have a few telltale signs that will tell you if you are being played.
He likes you to some extent
You’ve had “the talk” with him, you’ve told him how much you like him and he’s told you that he likes you…but to some extent. What does that mean? Well, ladies, don’t try to turn his words into something deep with a mysterious meaning because men are usually straightforward…most of the time.
If he says, he likes you to some extent it means he is not all the way in. He will bolt out of your relationship the moment things start to get real or you undergo some sort of change (like gaining a pound or two).
He is never very clear
“So babe, what are you up to tonight?”
“Oh you know, just doing some stuff with some guys later on somewhere.”
See how vague that answer is? What stuff is he doing, who’s he doing it with and where will he be doing it?
See, this guy doesn’t want to risk you showing up unannounced while he is doing “stuff” with some “guys” so he’d rather be vague. But all this does is leave you suspicious or left out.
Most relationships have a shelf-life of only a few months… if that!
Sometimes it’s hard to know if you should stick around and see where a relationship takes you, or if you should cut your losses and move on. If you are having a hard time deciding which road to take, below are five signs your relationship has reached its peak, and will probably not advance to the next level.
1. There is little to no physical affection
Ask any married couple, and they’ll tell you a healthy and active love life takes some seriously concentrated effort over the long haul. But what is difficult and challenging after several years of marriage should not be difficult and challenging after several months of dating. If your partner doesn’t at least get your pulse moving a little faster every time you see them, that might be an indication you’re in a relationship that’s going to go the distance.
2. It’s all physical and nothing else
The other end of the spectrum, is when your relationship is nothing but physical. You rarely, if ever, find yourself talking about anything of value, or importance. If every “date” takes place in bed, it might be time to get out of bed and see if you have anything in common outside the sheets. Long term relationships require a solid foundation of similar interests and passions. If the only thing you have in common is how much you both enjoy lovemaking, then it might be time to move on.
3. You or your partner have stopped caring about their appearance
What you are about to see might shock you, because just minutes after reading this, you are going to be given the EXACT blueprint that will force even the most UNAVAILABLE guy to feel an intense and almost insatiable level of attraction and desire for you.
If you’ve been banging your head against the “Friend Zone” wall with a man long enough to have a headache that could last a lifetime… or if you’ve frustratingly fallen for a man who’s about as available as an out of service number, then this is going to be the most important thing you are ever going to read…
I want you to pay close attention to the words I am about to share with you, and I want you to carefully link these ideas deeply in your mind immediately if you are tired of getting burnt time and time again by your unrequited love.
“Unavailability” Is Actually Caused By A MISUNDERSTOOD BIOLOGICAL Phenomenon Known as The “LOVE HORMONE EFFECT”
Now what exactly do I mean by that?
Well, you might not realize this, but a man LITERALLY cannot love you, until his body says that he can. That is to say, that a part of the makeup of ATTRACTION, desire, and LOVE actually comes from a physical and hormonal reaction that takes place in our body.
100% of the time, I can guarantee that the MINUTE a man becomes UNAVAILABLE or UNRECEPTIVE to your affection, desire, or love for him- it’s not because he’s stupid and just needs to logically work out that you are the right person for him someday.
It’s because his body is LITERALLY not programmed yet to FEEL that way about you. He simply doesn’t have the mechanisms in place to be able to FEEL attracted, or FEEL interested, or FEEL in love with you- like you do with him.
Think of it like this- in order to run my car, I need gas in my tank, right?
But if there’s no gas in the tank, my car is going nowhere.
The same is true when it comes to how men fall in love, how men come to feel attracted, and how men come to form a sense of addictive desire toward you.
More and more women are choosing to be single longer, prioritizing personal and financial development over the race to find a husband and having kids. Numerous studies have shown that there are plenty of benefits to the single-life that will have a positive impact on your physical health and personal growth. Here are some of the very best reasons why delaying marriage is ideal for today’s women.
The most obvious and significant benefit of being a single woman is that you can essentially do whatever you want. If you have a whimsical urge to go for a night out, plan a weekend away or look for a job in a new city, you are free to be spontaneous. Married couples have to negotiate every major life choice, often resulting in decisions that don’t truly suit either party.
Studies have repeatedly shown that single people devote more time to regular gym workouts and are more likely to attend exercises classes. In contrast, people in long-term relationships are known to become ‘too comfortable’, feeling that they are secure enough to eat four pizzas a week. It’s also worth noting that people in unhappy relationships tend to pile on even more pounds than women in happy relationships (possibly due to comfort eating).
Instead of picking up your husband’s dirty socks and fighting about when to have dinner with the in-laws, you will have the time and energy to pursue your career goals. Whether you want to be a high-flying lawyer or open your own restaurant, there are no romantic responsibilities hampering your productivity.
How Single Women Are Changing The World.
If you are a single woman, you are not alone. For the first time in U.S. history single women (women who have never been married), outnumber married women in the U.S., according to a recent U.S. Census report.
Not only are women waiting longer to get married but fewer of them are tying the knot at all. Because there are so many single women who depend on themselves to become financially and emotionally healthy, they are in the forefront on many of the amazing changes that benefit all women.
Because they’re not financially dependent on a man, single women are front and center when it comes to demanding that women get paid just as much as men for doing the same work.
Single women who are working just as hard as their male counterparts in the same position aren’t willing to take a backseat in their quest for equality. They fight tooth and nail to get what they rightfully earn. They are constantly trying to break the glass ceiling wider so that more women can pass through it.
Today’s single women are more embolden than ever to have a child without being married or even being in a committed relationship. So it’s not surprising that paid family leave is extremely important to them. When you don’t have a partner to help out, this is no longer a perk but a necessity.
Some people know that it’s not about the price of something, but the love behind it. Just because you get a huge, sparkling diamond engagement ring doesn’t mean your marriage will last. The size of your engagement or wedding ring doesn’t necessarily correspond to the love your partner feels for you. Now if given a choice, most women would choose a good size rock to show off to their family and friends. But those same women would not want their man to feel bad, or have less love for him if he couldn’t afford the rock of their dreams.
A growing trend today is for women to either help pay for their engagement ring or buy it themselves. This way they can get the ring that that want. I know some women are very materialistic when it comes to engagement rings and wouldn’t be caught dead with a small, inexpensive wedding set. Those women need to take a lesson from Ariel Desiree McRae…
While it can be interesting to learn about what past cultures were like for women, learning anything about the 1950’s can be pretty laughable considering just how much time has changed. Some people might joke about wanting women to behave this way again, while women enjoy looking at the retro style clothes, but after hearing all this, we can all hopefully be glad how things have changed.
In May of 1955, Housekeeping Monthly published an article entitled, “The Good Wife’s Guide,” detailing all the ways that a wife should act and how best she can be a partner to her husband and a mother to her children.
Here’s the list below:
Some people will cheat matter what you do, but sometimes you can stop it before it starts.
There is nothing that will wreak more havoc on a relationship than one partner being unfaithful. It will destroy the one thing that every healthy relationship needs, trust. The sad but true fact is that almost half (some experts say 65 percent) of all people in a relationship will cheat on their partner at some point. With the available of online dating apps such as Tinder, OkCupid, and Coffee Meets Bagel, (to name a few) hooking-up has become easier and more accessible.
There are proven factors that make some relationships more prone to cheating than others. If you are aware of these factors you can seek to shut them down before unfaithfulness creeps into your relationship.
How many times have you heard that communication is essential to any stable relationship? Well you’re going to hear it one more time. Many instances of cheating begins because one partner is not being heard in the relationship. Their emotional needs are not being met. When you don’t listen to your partner, when you don’t communicate, or ask about their feelings, they will find someone who are only too willing to fill that void.
Letting frustrations build
