The other night I came home and realized – I forgot to set my DVR!!!


So in an effort to detox, I channel surfed hoping to find something to get my mind off of DVR rage and alas…the Tyra Banks show came to my rescue!

On this particular episode, she had on Heather Belle & Michelle Fiordaliso, authors of “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Ex.”, answering audience questions (my fav part of the show) relating to the Ex-factor.

One girl got up and explained to the authors her situation & the exchange went something like this…

Girl in audience: “My ex and I broke up about a yr ago and we are still friends. I see him often and he is like a best friend to me. We talk all the time bc I feel comfortable talking to him about everything. Is it bad that he is still in my life?”

Authors: “Do you still sleep with your Ex?”

Girl in audience: “Yes.”

Authors: “Are you dating anyone currently?”

Girl in audience: “Yea, but I really haven’t found anyone that interesting.”

Authors: “What you are doing is called ‘Snacking‘. It’s the act of keeping/using exes for different reasons, thereby never allowing yourself to really be available for a new guy. In order to be really ready, you need to be ‘hungry‘ enough to be in a new relationship. Cut the ties with your Ex.”

Last year, I made the decision to not only cut out (or try to, anyway) toxic peeps, but also my Exes. And it’s not because I hated them or anything.
– To my Exes reading this…I don’t hate you, I promise –

I just finally realized that I needed to be free & clear, both emotionally & mentally, in order to be in a good place in my life.

Dependence on Exes, in whatever way, is just unhealthy, especially if you are actively dating.

Get what I’m sayin’? 😉
Dear dahlings – are you guilty of “Snacking”???
