What You Need to Know About Relationship Advice

In relationships there may be misunderstandings, uncertainties, discussions, disagreements, painful compromises and so on. You find yourself in a state of not-knowing and turn to Google for answers, or your friends and family. However well-meaning they are, they are not very often your best source of advice.

Why Someone Might Fall in Love With You

Do you look around and see friends in your circle who are a bit of a love magnet, but for some reason despite everyone telling you how attractive and wonderful you are, it isn’t happening? As a relationship expert, I’m often asked what isn’t working, or what else can could I do?

Keeping Momentum in Virtual Dating

You have delved into the unknown territory of virtual dates and they seem to be going well, you have kept a decent connection going for a few weeks but you can’t meet, that’s when it gets really tricky.

How to Avoid Toxic Arguments in Lockdown

Relationships can be trying at the best of times, add a pandemic with lockdown measures, and we have a situation that can make or break a relationship. So how to keep the relationship healthy?

Distance Dating

Self-isolation and social distancing doesn’t stop the need for romantic connection. How to do it best? Set up a killer profile, be creative, be romantic, be safe and embrace your situation and make the most of it.

Do you Cringe at Displaying Emotion?

What if sharing how you feel about someone actually enhances your chances of a relationship forming? If you think anything emotional is cringe-worthy, I would like to invite you to consider sharing the odd feeling and seeing what happens.

Is Date Coaching for Me?

This can also extend to our dating lives. But how can you tell if you could do with some date coaching?

What is Micro-Cheating? And How to Avoid It.

Micro-cheating relates to behaviours which are considered inappropriate to the fidelity of your romantic partnership. They are those small actions that by themselves aren’t quite enough to make you end the relationship, but big enough to make you feel hurt or angry and unloved. They ultimately contribute to the erosion of your relationship and that loving feeling.
