Ghosting is a very painful experience. It is not only unbelievably shocking, it's also an experience that leaves you feeling confused and empty -- you never get the closure you so desperately need. In fact, it was so devastating to me that I wrote an entire book about it.

The day will inevitably come when your sweet pre-teen gets to be dating age. And oh, what a day that is, let me tell you. As a parent of three young women, I always thought I would know exactly what type of person they would bring home. Let's just say if I had been a gambling sort, I would have lost it all, time, and time again.

A fairytale may be pretty and perfect and have a "happy" ending, but it is not real. It is healthy to have fantasies, to use your imagination to create visions for the future, but those exceptional moments that offer opportunity and require movement, only exist in the real world.

I learned that my experience was not unique. I wasn't upset because my fella and I had political views that were not 100% aligned. What concerned me was that, in order to have said views, he must be operating by a set of values that differ so fundamentally from mine that they are almost incompatible.

As strange as it sounds, I was uncomfortable that I felt uncomfortable. It was a feeling I had experienced only a few times before. But, on that night, when my boyfriend gave me flowers, opened the door for me and acted like a perfect gentleman, the truth was, I didn't like it. And it bothered me that I could not identify why.

This means you can no longer send (or receive) copied and pasted complex, multi-syllable words in text form to the person you're chatting up. You actually have to use your words and your voice to articulate what you're saying, similar to having a real conversation. Remember, those days?

If you are over 50, then the days of bar hopping back in the 1960s, 70s or 80s are long gone. Chances are there are few potential suitors warming a bar stool in today's bar scene. But online there are a multitude of dating possibilities. Feeling a bit anxious about taking the step if you are a late blooming dating neophyte is common.

All of these lead to being inspired to set goals and take action - compare in order to set a healthy goal; compete to be the best leader at home or at work; and never be so comfortable that you become complacent.

Today, more than ever, a woman needs to know what to look for on a first date; the things that would make it great, as well as the red flags she should be aware of, in order to be safe.
I've noticed that sometimes, people on a date are miserable but feel compelled to stay until the logical conclusion of the activity, whether it's coffee, a meal or drinks. They don't realize that they're free to end the date at any point if they're not feeling it or if they're not having a good time.

A first date can be awkward or enjoyable, exciting or boring, amazing or excruciatingly painful. People are simultaneously putting themselves forward and sizing each other up with everything leading toward the one important decision they need to make: whether or not to have a second date.

Starting a relationship without exposing our true selves is venturing into dangerous territory -- like walking in a minefield and knowing we could trigger an explosion with every step. Many of us have experienced or witnessed such an explosion before -- a couple seems to be getting along just fine until one day, out of the blue, one party calls it quits.
It's real and raw, and you're going to need tissues.

The media likes us to think that the perfect body, both male and female, is what we want to hold forever, but I'd like to disagree. I'd like to watch time take its toll and hear the words "I love you" with the same sincerity that was spoken when I was once young and beautiful. There is something in this that means so much more than the superficial joy of having someone frozen in perfection.
