Being single can mean facing heartbreak and humiliation on an almost day-to-day basis. It can also be thrilling, life-changing. It’s no wonder that people have such a hard time with singledom. It’s tough out there.
Talking about dating with a therapist can be hugely helpful. A therapist can be a sounding board, a co-strategist, and someone for you to voice your frustration, excitement, and disappointment to.
Therapy is also the ideal venue to explore what it is you’re really looking for–your hopes and desires–without fear of judgment or unwanted advice.
Dating can be confusing, exhilarating, dizzying, and, at times, profoundly lonely. Having someone to talk it all through with can make an enormous difference.
Please call to discuss and arrange a first appointment: (323) 610-0112. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation.
Books can also be a big help. Take a look at Harville Hendrix’s Keeping the Love You Find or try the long list of dating titles at Amazon–there’s no shortage of writing on the topic. Not all of it is great, but most of it will, at the very least, be food for thought.
