How do I Find a Good Guy After a Marriage of Verbal Abuse?

verbal abuseThis article originally appeared in Better After 50.

Dear Sandy,

I’ve been divorced from Mr. Wrong for four years. I was verbally abused in my marriage and want to do better this time around. I’ve done some healing with a therapist and am now ready to find my Mr. Right. I’m only interested in dating men who are serious and commitment-minded, not players or those who are just looking for a fling. How do I quickly screen out the wrong men without being too judgmental and possibly overlooking the right ones? And how do I stop obsessing on whether he’s the “one” on every date?

Thank you,

Janet

Don’t Wrap Your Life Around a Man

wrap your life around a manWhen a woman abandons herself for her boyfriend, she is heading down a dangerous path. This is one of the most common mistakes I see single women over 40 make. Actually, it’s a mistake I see single women of any age make. I understand what it’s like to twist yourself into a pretzel for a man. I’ve been there. I was guilty of this type of self-abandonment for a man throughout my twenties. When I met a man I was very attracted to, I’d often give up my own needs for him. I’d drop plans with friends when he made a last minute date to see me. I’d keep my feelings and needs hidden, fearing that he’d reject me if he knew how I really felt. I wouldn’t let him know that I wanted to be exclusive, because I thought that would feel like pressure to him. As a result, I’d be anxious and feel devalued when I imagined he was seeing other women. I’ve spent the past 5 years studying what makes relationships work and how to make love last. Relationships are complex. There are many components to a loving relationship that lasts. But what I know for sure is that you must begin by first loving and honoring yourself. If you don’t know and appreciate your own value, how will he? So please don’t wrap your life around a man! This video that I filmed for Pink Wisdom tells you what to do instead.

Why a Sukkah is Your Secret Path to Love

path to loveDid you notice a bunch of strange-looking huts springing up in your town about a week ago? Perhaps they have canvas walls with bamboo roofs. Maybe you’ve seen some with pine branches on top. A few are constructed of wooden panels. These temporary huts, or sukkahs, are built every year in celebration of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Why do Jews build these backyard huts? During biblical times, when the Israelites were wandering for 40 years in the Sinai desert on their journey from slavery in Egypt to the Holy Land of Israel, they couldn’t have permanent homes. The bible says Clouds of Glory protected them from harm. In gratitude for that protection, the Jewish people celebrate the holiday of Sukkot and dwell in these huts, or sukkahs, for seven days and nights.

An Open Letter To The Man Who Left Me Because I Said No To Sex

I said no to sexThis article appeared today in Your Tango. Whether a man disappeared after a first date, after sex, or after two months, it can hurt. But it’s OK. Especially if you can learn from the experience. Here’s what happened when I said no to sex.

Dear Disappearing Man,

I want to thank you for waking me up. After going on so many first dates with men who were trying too hard, who were not strong, who didn’t have much of a personality, who had little depth or consciousness, you showed up with your passions, your zest for life, your keen intelligence, your manliness, and your sexiness. You awakened me to the exhilaration of being with a man who is not afraid to express his opinions. You seemed to be balancing your home life (great cook, loving dad) with your work life (moving up in your company, saving and planning for your future). You weren’t afraid to express a strong manliness and desire for my womanliness. And that turned me on. You woke me up to the possibility of having found the mature life partner I have been seeking since my divorce.
