Dear Sybersue is an Informative and very REAL dating and relationship advice columnist for men & women of all Ages!
In today’s video Sybersue talks about people who are afraid to be themselves with their partners and who may be sabotaging their relationships without even being aware of the damage that is taking place on a daily basis.
When you hide your feelings and don’t divulge much of what you are thinking or feeling to your partner it can cause all sorts of problems that may never be resolved. Lack of communication between a couple is one of the biggest reasons for breakups today!
If you don’t talk openly with each other, what type of relationship do you have?
Pushing your partner away because of insecurities will not keep your relationship in a healthy place. How do you honestly think it will improve if you become more and more introverted about your true feelings?
They deserve more respect and your full attention. You are not in a part time situation that allows you to close down and shut your partner out. They have emotional and physical needs that shouldn’t be put on the back burner.
How long do you think they will want to stay in a one sided romance?
You fell in love for a reason; don’t let your relationship die due to fear, sabotage or laziness. Talk to your partner and tell them what’s going on inside your head. They will probably be more supportive than you think!
When you open up and share your feelings with them they know you trust them, which is a big part of a great relationship. Clamming up and pretending all is good, is not being true to yourself or to them. You both deserve more.
Go on, you can fix this! ❤
The Dear Sybersue Talk Show
In the video above Dear Sybersue discusses; “Are you Constantly being pressured by your friends to be in a relationship?”
Do people think they know what is best for you? Are they always trying to set you up with someone but you just want to be left alone?
Does your family also put in their opinions about your relationship status?
It might to be time to tell everyone to butt out if you enjoy being single right now! It’s not their business to be telling you what they think you should or shouldn’t be doing in your life even if they they think they have your best interest at heart. ❤
We all need time to get over a relationship breakup and allow love back into our lives. Sometimes the scars of heartbreak run deep and we need more time to rediscover ourselves without any pressure from others.
It also could be the scenario of putting your career first and you don’t want to complicate your life having to deal with both. Sometimes you just can’t do it all and you know that about yourself. It’s better than juggling too much and giving your partner the dregs of what you have left! No one wants to be that low on the priority list.
This is a good thing because you are respecting and honoring your boundaries at this particular time in your life.
But on the opposite side of the fence; make sure you aren’t sending out mixed signals to your friends about not wanting to get back out in the dating market again. You might not be aware that you are confiding to them that you are actually missing being in a relationship, how difficult it is being the 3rd wheel or that you feel so alone going solo to a wedding or other events.
It is a great thing that your friends and family care about you so don’t be mad at them for wanting you to find happiness. It is OK to gently communicate that you are very appreciative of their support but you would rather meet someone on your own when the time is right.
Have you had to deal with this scenario? How did you handle it?

Susan McCord @ The Dear Sybersue Talk Show
In the video above Dear Sybersue discusses one of the popular questions she gets on her advice column from women.
“Things have changed within my relationship, how do I know if my boyfriend is really in love with me?”
If you are asking this question you have probably not been paying attention to what is really going on in your partnership. When it gets to this stage it can often be the “beginning of the end” of your relationship. I am not trying to scare you but it is important for me to point this out and it may not be too late to salvage your love. ❤
Nurturing any relationship in your life is an ongoing necessary practice.
