WHEN TO PULL THE PLUG? --"30-Second Therapist"


Hi, All,

The game of love is not for the faint of heart!  In this week’s “30-Second Therapist” sponsored by the Today Show, one reader wonders why men keep dumping her when things seem to be going well.  Another questions whether, her former friend-with-benefits OF TWO YEARS AGO (!!) will come around now!  Both raise the perplexing issues of who’s right for whom, and when it’s time to pull the plug.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?



New York’s weather has turned hot and steamy without warning, in great contrast to last week’s freezing cold.  Most of our air conditioners haven’t been set up yet, so there’s a lot of East Coasters sweltering right now.  I hope you’re comfortable, wherever you are.

UPCOMING:  Dr. Gilda LIVE on Jim Bohannon Radio, Thursday, June 6, 12 Midnight to 1 AM, EST, and online.  Please call in your questions!

Love,
Dr. Gilda

LIVING WITH ONE, CHEATING WITH ANOTHER!!


Hi, All,

One reader in my Today Show “30-Second Therapist” column can’t understand why the man she dated for 8 years while he was living with another woman, cheated on them BOTH. 






Another reader wonders why having sex with her sex addict husband 5 - 8 times weekly isn’t enough.  Fill in this blank:  The average couple has sex _____ times per week!

JODI ARIAS' REJECTION


Accepting Rejection—without Murdering Your Ex!


Jodi Arias was convicted of murdering the ex who rebuffed her.  But can a dead relationship ever be revived?  After a partner tells you there’s no hope, notwithstanding murder, should you nonetheless push to restore the past? These were the questions in this week’s "30-Second Therapist" on the Today Show’s HEALTH page. They raise valid issues.  What do you think?

It was a busy week.  One of the TV interviews I did discussed the two Castro brothers, now having to live down the reputation of their rapist/kidnapper sibling.  You can’t help but feel for these guys who knew nothing about their brother's malfeasance.  Here’s the interview: http://bit.ly/129hJEi.  I’d love to hear your comments on this story, too.

I’m glad New York’s weather is getting warmer, although for me, being in CA would trump the east.  Soon!  I shine in the sun!! :)

Have a great week,
Love,
Dr. Gilda

MUST YOUR FAMILY ACCEPT YOUR MATE??


Hi, All,

How important is your family’s acceptance when you pick a mate?  One woman is still suffering because she didn’t make the cut with her ex’s clan.  




Then we have a guy who admittedly lied and cheated, and was jealous and insecure—but wants his ex back!!  Was I tough enough on him?  I love your responses!

"30-Second Therapist" Now on Today Show HEALTH Page!


Hi, All,
What do you think about this: Should a person give her/his cheater another chance?  

I’m delighted to announce that my “30-Second Therapist” column is now on Today Show’s Health page, because the condition of our relationships affects our entire health.  So, yay for this move! And it's perfect apropos of my recent Columbia University Medical Center Relationship Wellness work with medical and dental students!  

The questions for this week involve two entirely different people, both of who need to take a deeper look at their interactions.  It’s easy to point fingers at a partner, but what, exactly, attracts you to this person?  That’s where your clues to healing lie.  Sound convoluted?  Read these questions and my answers—and tell me what you think.




Pinterest displays my inspirational Gilda-Gram messages to Remember and Refer. This week’s Gilda-Gram™ is:  “If you’re in a miserable union, forget a 12-Step Program.  You need only two steps:  Get Up, Get OUT.”  I hope this ushers in tranquility and happiness for you.

PS:  As the Relationship to the Stars, my FB fan page at http://www.facebook.com/drgilda is great fun with the people and happenings in the news.  Today I posted about the first ever International Clitoris Awareness Week!!!  No joke, but the comments were raucous!!  Feel free to contribute.

Yours in HEALTH,
Dr. Gilda
