WE’VE STARTED RENEWING OUR WEDDING VOWS EVERY YEAR. HERE’S WHY
I recently read a statistic that the average couple spends between 200 and 300 hours planning their wedding. A few of those hours likely go into writing wedding vows. How many of us revisit or even think about those vows ever again?
My guess is almost none.
Earlier this year, I made a new friend named Bonnie who shared with me that she and her husband have been renewing their wedding vows every year for more than a decade. The night before their wedding, they stayed up late crafting personal vows, a manifesto for their marriage, and they revisit these words annually on their anniversary.
HOW TO GET OVER A BROKEN HEART
Want to know how to get over a broken heart? A breakup can feel like the end of the world, but if you really do want to move on, here’s a complete guide on how to deal with a broken heart.
At some point in your life, if not already, the proverbial “shit happens”.
And all you really want to do after that is try and figure out how to get over a broken heart.
If it hasn’t already, it may soon, or you may be one of those lucky few who are able to cruise through their entire life with just one loving mate.
But to the awful tons of people who aren’t that lucky, and have broken up, or are still licking their wounds or still crying their hearts out over a dead relationship, this may be an eye-opener.
THE LONELY GIRL
Short love stories are all about that skip in the heart, but could you actually have been in a romantic love story all along, and not know it? Here I reminisce about my walk into the world of love with a girl who didn’t even want to know me.
I’ve heard a saying, that “life is a surprise”. Call me a sceptic, but I generally scoff at lines that scream something that leaves us expecting so much.
My short love story may be short on words, but it’s a story that’s filled every thought and day of my existence with happiness.
I’m a guy, a 26-year-old guy who works in a job he likes. A guy who hangs out with his friends when the sun goes down, and one who, when the story begins, is still single.
I’m single, not because I want to be single. I think it’s weird to be single. Or maybe that’s what all guys think.

THE ANXIOUS-AVOIDANT RELATIONSHIP TRAP: AN INTERVIEW WITH AMIR LEVINE PART II
Interview Guest: Amir Levine, M.D., is a psychiatrist, neuroscientist, and co-author of a popular book, Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find and Keep Love, which has been translated into 14 languages. You can read Part I of the interview with Dr. Levine here.
It’s important to be in a secure relationship because insecure relationships are “a recipe for a lot of pain,” according to Dr. Levine.
This doesn’t mean that partners in insecure relationships don’t love each other. They often love each other a lot. The problem is that in an anxious-avoidant relationship, there tends to be a sense of “stable instability.”
