Kim says: Thank you so much for your article. It helped me tremendously. I find myself in a new relationship after years of being single and can identify with the circumstances and emotions that you have spoken of. Sometimes really helps having a “concrete” explanation of an “abstract” situation. Thanks again!

Beth says: I love your story. I relate to lots and lots and lots of it. Reading someone else’s truth helps more of mine bob up to the surface. It puts a few more dots in my “connecting the dots” life, so I can make more sense of how I got to where I am. Your sense of honesty and wide open bare vulnerability is healing. THANK YOU dear one. You are precious.
May says: I wanted to thank you for sharing your story. I identified with it in many ways. I am very happy for you eventhough I don’t know you personally. I just feel that if you were able to improve and be a better version of yourself, it gives me hope that it isn’t impossible for me. Thank you for that.

You just help change a life! Though I don’t know you, I love what you’ve done for me this moment.

Sure, the self help books on love addiction are helpful, but you write straight to the heart from the direct experience and it has such a sharp reflection to my own very similar patterns and behaviors… what i love about your blog is that it helps me understand the root causes as well as cures to these crazy making patterns… that have been running all of my relationships! Im 37yrs old and really truly ready to put an end to this cycle and not settle for so little any more*** So much gratitude again for your clarity, recovery and love… it is supportive beyond words* bonjourno from Perugia, Italia” –Lindsey Kleeman

“Thank you for the life saving information I found in you last April. Isn’t it just absolutely wonderful that today, NYE, I am sitting at home with my two intelligent, educated and loving ‘grown’ sons, instead of wasting my time on a “LOSER” and trying to make myself feel happier…I learned this year ONLY because of you…I was already happy, healthy and catered for…The garbage has been offloaded. I feel clean. Big massive love to you, hugs and best wishes…now go off and save some other poor sick women in 2014!…go on….hurry!!!..QUICK!!!..xxx”
“I had already emotionally educated my sons, like “do what I say, not as I ‘do’!. And they are great, however, they watched me recover with a lap top on the couch, reading you, and additionally think you are AMAZING!..come on, anyone who could tell me anything worth listening to has got to be good, right?. They too take your varied mantras with them and can spot a love addict a mile away. There were no more self help books for me to read, nowhere left to turn and then I found your site, (By accident) MIRACLOULOUS!….I really do believe it is the way you tell it and your sincerity that is the key. I for one can’t take on board anyone’s stuff unless I know they have been through it themselves. Your suffering was not in vain…I for one am the living proof…blessings…x”

“ I wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for your advice on creating a values list.

Your advice was perhaps among the best and most helpful pieces of advice I’ve gotten in many, many years if not ever. Thank you again for your advice and the blog entries you wrote on that topic. I know that a step down the road will be setting and enforcing boundaries to ensure my values are honored and respected, do you have links or blog entries that deal with this topic? It is an area where I have struggled in the past… Thanks again!” -Rob
