10 Things You (Unknowingly) Do That Make Men Think You’re A HOT MESS

In dating advice, relationships on March 16, 2017 at 1:11 am

You may wonder why you keep getting ghosted after a few dates. Maybe it’s not that you can’t start a relationship, but that you find that you can’t sustain a relationship. To you, it must be that the “guys” are the ones with the problems, and of course, it takes two to tango.

But it may be that you’re really a mess and don’t even realize it.

You may be doing things that signal to your potential partners and partners that you’re a hot mess. You may not even be “so messy” but may instead have learned bad relationship and life habits. Or, perhaps, you are truly a trainwreck in heels.

8 Stereotypes of Divorced Women

In divorce on March 12, 2017 at 3:35 am

Stereotypes exist for a reason they say, but it doesn’t mean that we should make judgments or pass assumptions based on some mythological stereotype. I wrote an article on stereotypes of divorced men, and so here are some of the stereotypes divorced women face each day…whether the experience is true or completely false for them. Instead of making assumptions that all divorces and divorced people act along “gendered lines,” we would really benefit if we could agree that divorce doesn’t look the same for anyone. I know not one single person that has my exact “divorce story,” and to recognize that divorce impacts people and children in different ways will only help us make new lives post-divorce, better…for all of us.

1- She’s a gold-digger

Not all divorcing women are rolling in alimony from their heads to their toes. Reality is some women pay their former spouses, not the other way around. People assume falsely so that not only will a woman “be financially okay,” but she’ll also make out big after her divorce, leaving her ex floundering.

That certainly isn’t my situation by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it many people I happen to know.
