In truth, many people end up in lasting and happy relationships with someone who is well outside the scope of who they thought they were looking to find. That is why I like to say, ‘date around, don’t sleep around.’ In other words, open yourself up to the possibilities that are out there, without becoming too attached too quickly and thereby narrowing your view of the possible relationships that might be right for you.Scotch asks: What is the best way to communicate with a guy?Basically, he just needs a time out from everything.This doesn’t mean that he’s stopped thinking of you, loving you or that he wants to break up.It is for this very reason that I always encourage women to have an active and engaged social life that reaches above and beyond the relationship she has with her significant other.
