How do I fix a marriage after cheating??
My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?
Idk what to do
My boyfriend and I have been fighting because he found some old messages that I had when we started going out, the messages are not bad the conversations where just like hi and bye kind of thing but because I told him I wasn't talking to anyone he's mad but da whole time he was still hanging out with his baby momma behind my back and he would delete all his messages to her so I wouldn't see them
Lost and confused at a crossroads
My boyfriend and I have been together for seven years now. We have had a very tumultuous relationship both of us have hurt each other very much on each parts. But he’s done a lot more wrong it has no accountability. But my question is how do you handle it because anytime I try to talk to him about anything he automatically yells at me, deflects, accuse me of cheating. How do you go about handling
How can I get my teen to confide in me
I've been trying to get my son to confide in me about why he is feeling so depressed. He is 15 years old and a very good teen but have no idea why he is so withdrawn and quiet. Please help me I cant bear to see him like this
What do I do?
I'm not sure what to do. Recently separated mom with 2 young girls and pregnant with my 3rd.
I took my son's Ipad away because I'm at my wit's end with him.
He is so addicted and doesn’t want to do anything else. Can anyone tell me whether I did the right thing or am I being too harsh?
It's 3 y I divorced and we have shared custody of 2 lovely kids. Any advice on how to make them understand that divorced parents is ok?
What should I do?
My son is acting out in school and giving people the middle finger and running around and hitting when he is restrained and he also has speech apraxia and may have ADHD
How do you stand out from the crowd? How do you ensure that people come to your coffee shop and not the Costa or Starbucks down the road? It can be hard to compete with the big boys; but turn that around...if you are small you can adapt and react quickly to changes happening in your location and to your customer trends
Think carefully about your ideal customers and how you can attract them. Offer something that they can’t get elsewhere.
Are your customers young mothers with preschoolers wanting to meet for coffee? Make your coffee shop child friendly....and child friendly does not mean a children’s menu offering nuggets and chips, sausages and chips etc. It means really looking at how difficult it is to eat out with preschool children. Offer a selection of books and toys, research a varied children’s menu. Mums today want healthy options for their children and you are more likely to see very young children eating hoummus and cucumber than burgers and chips. Look at the large chains like MacDonalds...they now offer fruit packs, veggie wraps etc as part of their children’s menu. When the children are old enough to choose for themselves they will probably revert to choosing burgers, fried chicken and chips but that is another market completely.
Do you draw your customers from nearby offices or factories? Takeaway sandwiches, wraps, soup etc are probably the most common choice. For people eating in during their lunch hour, you need to offer fast food. No-one wants to spend the best part of their lunch break waiting for their food. Invest in good biodegradeable or compostable takeaway boxes with sections to allow a variety of takeaway salads...chickpeas, beetroot yoghurt and walnut salad, Waldorf salad, different coleslaws, mixed beans....as well as the traditional shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and cucumber. Add a small pot with a lid for a portion of dressing. Also worth thinking about offering deliveries to offices and factories. Drop off a list of what you do and ask for orders by 10 am for lunchtime deliveries. Also check out websites like ‘Bring me Lunch’ that list cafes in all locations offering lunchtime deliveries.
Finally: Never...ever...compromise on quality of ingredients. Customers now demand top quality and there has been a massive rise in street food businesses that offer quality and choice. They have much lower overheads than the average cafe or coffee shop so you have to be constantly looking at what you can offer that sets you apart from the crowd.
