Breaking up

The best rebound I’ve ever had.

February 19, 2011

Just look at him. I am absolutely in love with him. And only one week in, all three of us are so incredibly attached to each other–it’s hard to imagine our family without him. Maybe I’m self-medicating our family with a dog, but I don’t care. This is far better than rebounding with a man, […]

How to get over a break up.

August 22, 2008

Jane Wonder, the author of One Date Wonder (a personal favorite of mine) isn’t a single mom but she is a dating expert. I love her blog because she’s brutally honest about her emotions including the ups and downs of falling in love and breaking up. Here’s her take on how best to recover from a break up.

July 20, 2008

My best friend and fellow single mom, Abby, is still reeling from her break up. And so is her 5 year old daughter, Penny. She’s a beautiful, happy little girl who also fell in love with mommy’s boyfriend. How couldn’t she? He was over at their house at least three to four nights a week. […]

The Best Break-up Song Ever

May 6, 2008

I am a long time supporter of yours. Months ago, I hopped onto BarackObama.com and joined your fantastic online community. Nice work on that social network by the way. Very nice. I have found lots of cute men in my area who are also card carrying liberals…and I feel like I am truly part of […]

A bittersweet good-bye.

February 4, 2008

A few hours after writing my last post…I got a call from Kris. He felt horrible about the way the dump went down and wanted to see me. I said – no way. I didn’t see the point. What good could come of it? Was he going to come over and dump me again? He told me to call him if I changed my mind and then 20 minutes later he called me.

“I’m on my way over – I have to see you.” Two minutes later there was a knock on my door. It was late. I was tired. But we talked. First he started with an apology and then he said it, “you know I really love you, right?” I told him I didn’t think he really knew what love was. But then I saw it in his eyes. And he does. Then as we talked about why he had come to this decision everything came out. The truth about his feelings.

The Fine Art of Dumping.

January 21, 2008

I’ve had a rough day. I didn’t get dumped but my best friend did and she’s a single mom. Needless to say I want to kill the guy (not really FBI, but I would like to punch him in the face). Instead of ranting about what a jerk her now ex-boyfriend is I decided to channel my negative energy into a cynical but hopefully interesting post on how to break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend.

I have a theory – how we dump someone is a clear reflection of our character.

Here are some of the most common dumping methods – guess which one the guy used on my single mom friend?

Online Dating Etiquette: How to break up…virtually.

October 26, 2007

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren tied the knot this weekend in a private ceremony. She’s expecting their baby girl in just a few weeks now. I’ve written about this before … about celebrities, or just us plain old folks, who get married after happy accidents – i.e. pregnancy, or in my case, getting busted by […]
