No one is going to do it for you. If you want something, you have to ask for it. No exceptions. If you want a raise, don't make a big deal out of it. Write down the reasons, make an appointment with your boss, and then ask for it.
This time is about you. It's not about making yourself as busy as possible. Get to know yourself again. Get to you know your family, friends, children. Know them as who you are now, not who you were yesterday.
Online dating. It can be a full time job. In fact, to make sure you are doing it right, it almost has to be. Though, if you are recently divorced and you want to get back out and date or at least meet some good people, it can be a great way to connect.
I am often asked about the "rules" of dating after divorce. The truth is, I am not sure there are any tried and true rules to being the perfect post divorce dater. But talking by experience, theses are the ones that are working for me.
The divorce rate in this country is about 50 percent, but, you already knew that, right? Did you know, however, that for second and third marriages that statistic can increase to anywhere between 60 to 73 percent?
I have now recently discovered a whole new set of questions, post the walk down the aisle. The new questions go something like this: "so when are you going to have kids," and "are you talking children, you are not getting any younger?"
