I just had to share the good news – what a fantastic way to start my day. Your article was picked up by BuzzFeed, and has been shared from sites like The Chive, and Essence! This is huge, so we are going to continue to promote the piece and keep an eye on it. Very well done!

Yay! It’s such an honor to have a post go viral. Here’s an excerpt from that article about whether you should have sex with an ex.


My boyfriend and I dated on and off for the past 3 years. Last year, he dumped me 10 times. Every time we had an argument, he’d leave. He’d come back a few weeks later, apologizing, saying he loved me and didn’t want to lose me.

While on vacation this past summer, he left our hotel room while I was in the shower and flew home. He contacted me 4 months later, and I got back with him for about 6 weeks before he dumped me by text over a really stupid disagreement.

love him so much. He told me he wanted to be with me forever. We had plans for our future. Do I forget all about him? Or do I get back together and sleep with him to smooth things over?


Dear Abby,

Sweetheart, how many times do you need to get rejected before you’re ready to dump that guy to the curb for good? Your ex is unkind, unpredictable, and doesn’t value you. Whatever you do, do not get back together! Do not sleep with him. Do not let him in the door. Do not answer his calls. Un-friend him on Facebook. Stop thinking about all the beautiful things he said and did. Focus on all the awful times when he dumped you and was unkind. Don’t expect him to change. Move on and find someone who cherishes you and treats you well.
