Ist es je möglich, mit der Familie der:des Ex in Kontakt zu bleiben?

Elaine Ventura war etwa ein halbes Jahr mit ihrem Ex zusammen gewesen, als sich die beiden trennten. Die Trennung verlief relativ schmerzlos. „Wir waren einfach nicht auf derselben Wellenlänge“, erklärt sie. „Außerdem war ich viel älter als er.“ Kurz danach gingen sie getrennte Wege. Seitdem haben sie kein einziges Wort mehr ausgetauscht. Ventura hat aber immer noch Kontakt zu seiner Mutter. „Ohne seine Mutter auszukommen, fiel mir viel schwerer, als ihn gehen zu lassen“, meint sie. „Wi...

For Couples, Being Stuck Inside Together Isn’t The Same As Being Intimate

If you’re quarantining with your partner, chances are “more intimacy” is not something you think you need. After all, you guys are together, like, all the time. Sure, maybe you escape to different rooms during the day. But still — you breathe a sigh of relief when your counterpart leaves for a 15-minute CVS run.As it turns out, the disintegration of our normal boundaries can actually erode emotional intimacy.Renown relationship therapist Esther Perel writes about this idea in her book, Mating In...

Die Selbst-Isolation könnte eure Beziehung zerstören – muss sie aber nicht

Die eigene Wohnung nicht mehr verlassen zu können ist ein vergleichsweise geringer Preis, den wir aktuell zahlen müssen, um die alarmierende Geschwindigkeit der Corona-Ausbreitung einzudämmen. Aber das heißt nicht, dass es einfach ist. Es kann langweilig sein, es kann einsam sein, es kann zu Panikattacken führen. Und wenn du mit deiner Partnerin oder deinem Partner zusammenlebst, kann es eine echte Herausforderung für eure Beziehung sein. Wozu das schlimmstenfalls führen kann, zeigt die St...

Over 200 Members of Congress Urge Supreme Court to ‘Reconsider’ Abortion Rights Under Roe v. Wade. Pro-Choice Advocates Say They’re Ignoring Public Opinion

More than 200 members of Congress told the Supreme Court that its landmark decisions on abortion, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, should be “reconsidered and, if appropriate, overruled” in a brief they submitted to the court on Thursday. Anti-abortion group Americans United for Life organized the amicus curiae brief (translated from latin to mean “friend of the court”) in support of a restrictive Louisiana abortion law that is currently under a temporary stay and slated to be c...

Feeling Jealous? Here's What It Might Mean

Whether you're in a long-term, committed relationship, or are just weeks into a new fling, chances are you may have felt a slight twinge of jealousy at some point.

It's Okay To Pause Your Dating Life During The Holidays

The holidays and cuffing season slam right into one another, meaning a lot of people's dating lives kick into high gear this time of year. Between the parties, the cozy nights at home, and the fact that your heat is so damn finicky that you just need a warm body to keep you toasty, you may find yourself swiping around on dating apps more than usual.But all that obsessive dating could lead to some pretty serious burnout. "The feelings of loneliness and sadness that get brought up for a lot of pe...

Can You Ever Really Let Someone Down Easily?

In a dating world where ghosting seems to be the main way of telling a potential partner that you don't want to hang anymore, the idea of letting someone down easy might seem as old-school as picking up the phone and calling someone for a date. (The horror.) But if you've been dating someone for a few weeks or months, and you're just not feeling it anymore, it's a good idea to let them off the hook easily."I always tell people to proceed cautiously in the first couple of months in a relationshi...

THIS Is How You Win A Breakup

There's a scene in Sex and the City where, after Carrie breaks up with Big for the first time, a photo of her appears in the newspaper. In the photo, she's wearing a new dress and she's on a date with a famous baseball player. The women all talk about how it's a coup for Carrie. "Big is going to see this and die," Samantha says.The idea that, post-breakup, each party tries to get one over on the other is a sentiment many people who've ever ended a relationship are familiar with. To "win" the br...

Everyone's Engaged & You're Still Single — Here's How To Cope

There are certain things I expect around the holidays. I expect to stress over how to afford all the gifts I want to buy while also paying my electric bill. I expect to drink too much wine on Thanksgiving and pass out before the post-dinner turkey sandwiches. And I expect to scroll through Instagram between now and New Year's and see about five million engagement announcements. It's engagement season, and rings are being handed out like it's Oprah's "Favorite Things" episode.Meanwhile, I'm stil...

You're Doomed To Be A Helicopter Parent — But It's Not Your Fault

I’m staring at my 2-year-old daughter through a night-vision monitor. I pan the camera side to side until the screen images her midsection, and zoom in to be sure I see it rise and fall beneath her tight-fit dinosaur pajamas. Sometimes, I still sneak into her room for an in-person check, too — there’s only one way to be sure my child is safe, my thinking goes, and it involves my own two eyes.It makes sense that the technology I use for this is otherwise reserved for warfare. Parenting is like t...

How I Keep From Being Cynical When Dating Totally Sucks

I used to never understand people who would wax poetic about the beginnings of relationships. They’d go on about how much they loved the new-ness of everything — the first kiss, the first time they had sex, the first time they realized their partner hated the same things they hate. People talk about the honeymoon phase in relationships all the damn time. But the first month for me rarely feels like a honeymoon, which I assume is just a suspended state of vacation sex. No, the beginning of a rel...

Why We Get Attached To People We Haven't Met IRL

Whether you're new to online dating or a seasoned pro at swiping, chances are you've fallen into what I like to call the "haze." The haze is when you match with a person, you get to talking, and you really hit it off. After a few messages, you've already envisioned your relationship together — the weekend trips you'll take, where you'll put your jade plant in the loft apartment you'll move into together, and what you'll name the kitten you adopt — all before you've even met the person in real l...

How To Handle The Scary, Sad, No-Good Single Days

When you start writing about your romantic life, people tend to assume certain things about you. Over the weekend, a guy asked if I felt pressure to seek out strange sex and dating experiences in order to make my stories more interesting. (I don’t.) A friend of mine figured I’d start having a harder time finding men to go out with, since they’d be afraid of being turned into content. (I haven’t.) But the biggest misconception I've come across is that since I’ve started writing this column, I ha...

It's Time To Call "Ghosting" What It Really Is

Two days ago, I yelled at my computer after reading a series of articles across the web. In them, the writers describe the exact relationship I currently find myself in: one in which we’ve passed the casual hook-up phase, but have put the brakes on the full-blown relationship for the time being. But instead of describing it as "the gray area between only texting after 11 p.m. and meeting his mother, but he also has contact solution at my place," the internet’s relationship-defining experts call...

A crack in everything

I was walking with my son at MASS MoCA on a recent rainy day. He was collecting Pokémon on my phone, and I was letting my mind wander with our footsteps. The asphalt of the pavement beneath my feet was cracked in several places. As in many places, the cracks had been filled in and repaired. But then I noticed that these repaired cracks weren't quite like the ones I see everywhere else. They gleamed. They were golden. And then I noticed the small plate on the side of building 11 indicating tha...

Psychology Around the Net: April 23, 2016

Earlier this week, a recently unemployed friend of mine began a round of several interviews for a new job that, if all goes well, potentially could be the perfect fit for him. During the first interview he was asked, “What is your strongest attribute and how would it benefit our company?” My friend is a quick thinker and delivered an answer that, after talking about it later, we both decided indeed summed up his strongest attribute; however, the interviewer’s question made us both start thinkin...
