"So what's going on?" This was the first thing my new therapist said to me after we exchanged initial greetings.

I'd… Continue reading The Relationship that Almost Killed Me
Being single during autumn can tempt the #pickme within. Don't let it.
Now that I've gotten your attention, let me explain. Stop being nice to men. And by nice, I mean being an overly accommodating, low maintenance, overthinking doormat.
