Too often during a breakup the phone can become our enemy. It sits there, mocking us with cruel silence while we wait for it to ring with that call from the ex begging us to take him back. And it's all too willing to enable those ill-conceived calls when we're feeling desperate, drunk, or both (that dreaded double-d). I suggested one trick to help you prevent this, but it's good to have multiple weapons in your arsenal against that other dreaded double-D, drunk dialing.

I'm writing a more detailed piece on this topic for breakup-coach.com, but since it's almost the end of Domestic Violence Awareness month I wanted to post some initial thoughts. While many of us end up pining away after an elusive ex, too many others have to deal with a former partner who won't leave us alone. This may range from annoying drunk texts in the middle of the night to real terror and violence.

A lot of people looking for help or advice about a breakup search for it online; that might be how you found me in the first place. Unfortunately a lot of the "help" offered is a marketing scheme designed to prey on the vulnerability and insecurity that we naturally tend to feel in the midst of a breakup in order to squeeze us for some of our hard-earned cash.

I wanted to share this great post on B.oB.'s running blog which uses a breakup analogy to explain what a running injury is like. Not only is it clever but it's a good reminder of something that comes up all the time in my conversations as The Breakup Coach: "breakups" don't just happen in romantic relationships. We end up having a lot of the same feelings and problems when there's conflict or breaking off with our friends, our jobs, a favorite activity (like B.o.B's running), and lots of other life situations.
