Calling all Single + Married Women: It’s Been Advice Month!

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

I’ve been asked to share my positive thoughts on love for a few publications lately, so in case any of these stories might appeal to you, here they are…

1) First, I loved contributing to this piece called “That Single Life” in the brand new January/February 2016 issue of Women’s Health magazine.

WomensHealthSINGLE The Women’s Health features real women who have bucked the coupledom standards by doing things like buying a house single, having a baby single, and traveling single.

I spoke with writer Faye Brennan about why single women can rock whatever it is they damn want, which is the entire mindset behind my book Meeting Your Half-Orange: An Utterly Upbeat Guide to Using Dating Optimism to Find Your Perfect Match (Running Press).

Pick up the Jan/Feb issue of Women’s Health to read the full piece about “That Single Life,” but here’s my advice in part #3 about why it’s healthy to be “The Jet Setter” who is traveling solo:

2) For the story Dating as a Single Parent…If You Dare, I offered some advice for single mothers who are having a difficult time in their dating lives with writer Christine Coppa, who is a single mom herself. You can read the full story here on that one here on the USA Today Network’s Asbury Park Press site, but here’s a small snapshot of some my advice when it comes to where to meet your potential partners:

3) I also offered some advice for Woman’s Day magazine, about the 9 Important Signs Your Marriage Can Be Saved. I talked to the magazine about the positive signs of recognizing that your behavior might be affecting your partner’s behavior or when you both recognize how much you appreciate your family time. You can read the full piece here on Woman’s Day, but here, again, is a small snapshot of some of my advice:

Jillian Michaels: “I Don’t Believe In All or Nothing”

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Time and again, Jillian Michaels is one of of my favorite people to interview.

Jillian is a font of excellent health, fitness and—best of all—life experience. And this sit-down with her, for the October 2015 issue of Health magazine is yet one more dose of her best.

When we met on the set of her new show Sweat, Inc., (which premieres Sept. 20th on Spike TV) she talked about fitness at every decade of your life, surviving failure and marriage equality. And her “trick” for approaching something you fear is my favorite advice yet — it’s at the end of the story, which you can read in full here on the Health.com website.

Do yourself a favor: Read. Enjoy. Go for it.

Dr. Oz: Please Excuse My Spouse!

Friday, February 28th, 2014

For the debut issue of Dr. Oz’s new magazine, The Good Life, I wrote a fun feature about what happens when you find yourself blushing at something your other half is doing—whether it’s your spouse,  your partner or someone you’re dating.
