Rebound Relationships

A person might be considered on the rebound if he or she becomes involved in a relationship that shortly follows the ending of a previous one. Those on the rebound are assumed to have distress as a result of their prior relationship, and therefore their emotional availability is in question. Commonly it is assumed that if you are on the rebound you do not have the capacity to make good decisions about a choice of partner because your feelings about your previous partner influence your decision making. Thus, if you are dating someone who is rebounding, you may wonder if that person is capable of emotional attachment or if you are, instead, simply a substitute for love that was lost.

Drug/Alcohol abuse

Alcohol abuse means having unhealthy or dangerous drinking habits, such as drinking every day or drinking too much at a time. Alcohol abuse can harm your relationships, cause you to miss work, and make it hard to do the things you need to do. It can lead to legal problems, such as being arrested for disorderly conduct or driving while intoxicated. If alcohol abuse continues, it can lead to alcohol dependence. Drug related conditions are characterized by the use of illegal drugs or the incorrect use of legal drugs to the extent that the user is at risk for  social, legal, and/or physical problems.  Drug abuse includes the use of illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or other “street drugs” and the abuse of legal prescription and nonprescription drugs.


 Abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it. No one should live in fear of the person they love. If you realize yourself or someone you know in the following warning signs and descriptions of abuse, reach out. Abuse is used for one purpose and one purpose only, to gain and maintain total control over you and you do not want that to happen.


We are all vulnerable to being manipulated in relationships, whether between couples, friends, parents, children, employers, coworkers, or neighbors. When we allow another person to manipulate us, we are colluding with their desire to control our feelings,and even our thoughts through deceptive,and unfair means. A manipulative relationship is onesided and unbalanced. These relationships become troubled over time. If you want to change this kind of relationship, you must first recognize the features of manipulation and then look within to understand your contribution to the manipulation. There are effective ways to stand up to manipulation and bring balance back into the relationship.

How To Tell If A Guy Likes You

Just because he has not said those three little words does not mean he isn’t crazy about you, but how can you tell without risking embarrassment of asking. Whenever you catch him just staring at you no matter what your doing or when they get a little jealous when you talk about another male, that’s when you start to realize that they are starting to like you more than a friend. If he talks about parties or gigs he wants to go too, and waits for you to say you’ll go with him or if he actually invites you, especially if they are later on in the year. Making plans with you is a big hint.

Keeping a strong relationship

Sometimes it seems like the world is filled with perfect couples, all of who are  the secrets of happy couples that the rest of us just are not entitled to. In reality, nobody is perfect. Those who can accept imperfections are often the happiest, which is what really allows us to achieve a long relationship! Some of the secrets of happy couples are surprisingly obvious, but downright brilliant at the same time. Seriously, one of the biggest secrets of happy couples is that they just let themselves argue.The more we hold back, the worse things bubble up so try to argue while the small stuff is still small.

Great divorce party

A divorce party is a fun way to move on from the past and start a new chapter in your life. It’s a chance to celebrate and embrace your once again freedom and all the possibilities that the future holds. Since this is a celebration of you being single again, the type of party is really up to you. It could be a casual lowkey party held in your home, backyard, restaurant or local bar or it could be a all black tie affair with everyone that you know. If you feel that you have missed out on something while you were married, such as a hobby or a place you wanted to visit, you could even use that as a divorce party theme.
