I absolutely hate that “begin again” feeling that creeps in as soon as a relationship is over. I’m very guilty of letting way too much time pass between relationships because it takes me a long time to recover for one relationship and prep myself to be a good girlfriend in the next.

You’re sitting opposite a guy on a date. You feel like things are going well, but you’re just not sure. How can you tell for certain if a man is interested in you, or whether he’s just being friendly?
