After the end of my last long-term relationship, I decided I would stay in the off position for a while. Is it my age (soon to be 57) or the thought of going back to the daily meet-and-greet I find so depressing? I don't have the answer.
The dreaded, difficult "relationship talk." By now, we've all had them, and they're still hard to navigate. Whether they're about money, sex or family issues, these talks make problems at the office look like a walk in the park.
When I speak to women who are in their 50s and are still carrying on a relationship with a guy who's unavailable, or manipulative, or keeping them guessing about anything they don't want to communicate, I want to say to them, "What are you doing!?"
