Breakup Advice: Go ghost

I’d like to address a timely trend we are noticing within recent emails and posts sent by breakup sufferers. It’s related to the premise of “going ghost” following a breakup. It’s not a tool to make your ex wonder what you’re up to, or a component of gamesmanship. This is a self-preservation tactic designed specifically […]

Breakup Advice: How did this happen?

It’s common for tons of questions to run through our heads in the aftermath of a breakup.

We have learned to use and appreciate toiletries since then, however, and we pretend to enjoy chivalry and […]

Breakup Advice: Emotion regulation

It’s a little known fact that there is no such thing as a good or bad emotion. I think this is a good place to start, especially since we tend to “feel bad” about “feeling bad.” Don’t. Emotions simply are what they are; we just attach a good or bad label to them after we experience them. There are […]

She really isn’t that into you

My dad once told me, “When it comes to women, you gotta be rich or good looking.” I was a fairly lazy kid, so I focused on working-out incessantly and optimizing my “look.” This practice later included such accoutrements as an effeminate mullet shellacked into place with an econo-size can of “Super-Hold” Aqua-Net and a […]
