With so much divorce these days in America, there are more and more TV shows being made that are centering around it. “Happily Divorced” with Fran Drecher is a hit, so others seem to be on the way. In fact, ABC just ordered a new pilot for a show entitled, Divorce: A Love Story. The half-hour comedy centers around a recently divorced couple, who were bad together but discover they’re even worse apart. Then, they can’t seem to stay out of each other’s lives.
I can’t imagine two people being worse apart after a divorce! Maybe this show will prove that two people can be friends after a divorce. We will see how it all works out if this pilot gets picked up after it’s made.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I have written an article for YourTango.com about how to have fun being single on February 14th. Below is an excerpt from that article.
Host A Singles Valentine’s Day Dinner Party
Being single on Valentine’s Day gives you the option to throw a Valentine’s party and have a great evening with your single friends
There’s no reason that you shouldn’t have fun being single on February 14th. It’s the perfect holiday to celebrate your freedom! Last year, I decided to throw a singles Valentine’s Day party. I’m not single myself, but I was in Los Angeles and my husband was in New York on business. I have lots of single friends in LA and decided to host them all at my home. Some of the people who were hesitant about attending were happy that they came. We all had so much fun! One couple who met at my party really liked each other and are still dating.
Here are some easy tips for hosting a singles Valentine’s Day dinner party.
*Organize a Guest List: Write down the names of all of your single friends that live close by, they could even bring another single friend. Have a positive crowd at the party who will be open to meeting new people.
*Play Matchmaker: Once you finish the list and get your RSVP’s, begin to figure out who would possibly be attracted to each other. Don’t tell your guests prior, “I have someone you should meet.” Let it be a surprise.

Here is my article:
We have all been through a break up at some point in our lives. While it usually turns out to be the right decision, it’s tough when you’re going through it. If you’re the one ending the relationship how you deliver the news can make a big difference.

Basically, there’s no good way to break up. We would hope our partner would do it with some feeling, but sometimes love is a battlefield. Here are five ways you should never use to end a relationship.
1) Heard it Through the Grapevine: Some people choose to ask another person to do their breaking up for them. Having a friend tell someone that it’s over is not only bad, it’s incredibly cowardly. Do it yourself and deal with the backlash that comes with it.
