4 Tips to Reignite Your Relationship

your relationshipBeing in a relationship can be incredibly rewarding and wonderful. Many people who are single daydream of someday having a partner they can share everything with, from their most mundane thoughts to their life’s goals and dreams. That doesn’t mean that being in a relationship is all peaches and cream though, and it certainly doesn’t mean that it’s always easy. I know this from experience in my own relationships.

In fact, experience has taught me that relationships are hard work, and even when you do your best to maintain them, that spark that you had early on in your relationship can feel like it’s starting to fade from time to time. It can happen even if your relationship isn’t having any problems.

Dating a Man Who’s Separated, Not Divorced

dating a man who's separatedDear Sandy, 

I hope you can help me.  My husband passed away 8 months ago.  A friend of both of ours became very interested in me.  He was separated, not divorced at the time.  He has three kids, all in their twenties.  His two daughters had a very difficult time with him dating me.  Two months into the relationship, he told me that one of his daughters asked him to give their mother another chance.  He reunited with his wife, and  I am totally devastated and depressed.  I never thought he’d do this to me!  I didn’t think it would be a problem dating a man who’s separated, not divorced. What is your advice?
