8 Things You Should Know Before Playing Matchmaker

In this dating landscape where potential matches are available at the click of a mouse, it’s easy to assume that matchmaking is a relic from another time and place. As old fashioned as it may sound, however, I’m an advocate of the well-thought-out setup, for several reasons: (1) matchmakers know a person better than any computer can; (2) setups give …

When A Friendship Ends

One of the longest friendships I have had in my life began in the middle of 7th grade. I transferred from one school to another in January, right in the middle of the school year.

When You’re Stuck In Breakup Limbo

When I was in a 12-step program, it was really easy to be single. It was recommended we not date while on the program, and I knew I was not in a place to date, so I put myself in a 1-year sanction from dating. It was rather comical, because some of my guy friends would ask, “Hey, you think …

When God Doesn’t Meet Your Expectations

What happens when God doesn’t meet your relationship expectations? If you’ve been single for any amount of time, then you’ve probably had to face this question before.

When You’re Stood Up

I sat there and waited. And I waited, and waited. I had made a coffee date for Saturday afternoon at 2:30 and arrived about 2:20 pm. I sent her a text saying I was there about five minutes before our meet time. No reply. Around 2:45, I sent another note asking if she was close. No reply. After 40 minutes of waiting, I decided …

From Victim To Victor: Overcoming Domestic Abuse And Divorce

I am a victor over domestic violence. I do not define myself by my experience. I rarely talk about it unless I’m sitting across the table or room from someone who is weeping as they tell the horrific stories of abuse that have occurred in their life. Yet our televisions and magazines are full of 48 Hours and Dateline stories …
