Get over it!
By Anthony Buono

Have you ever had someone tell you to get over it when you’re expressing the pain of a failed relationship?

It’s not easy to get over it.  Whatever “it” is, you have been affected, and you can’t control your feelings or your memories. In your mind, you wonder how you are supposed to get over what happened to you, and how you can possibly get over the hurt.

Just when you think you are making progress, something happens to trigger what happened, and you play it all over again in...

Why marriage is the cure to selfishness
By Anthony Buono

I read a recent article that started out by saying that “all marriages start off very selfishly.” He went on to say that people realize into the marriage that they can’t be so selfish and act accordingly.  It’s not quite that simple.

Catholic teaching tells us that everyone born is selfish due to original sin that configured humanity to a condition of a self-serving nature. In Christ, through Baptism, original sin is removed, but its effects remain. Thus, we still have that strong...

How is a relationship like a garage sale?
By Anthony Buono

... from a distance it looks like it could be interesting, but up close, it’s just a ton of crap you don’t need.

These are the words from something I found on Pinterest, minus the profanity (though you have to admit, it’s the right choice of word). I laughed, of course, at first because I can totally relate to the garage sale concept of spending a lot of time rummaging through stuff in hopes of finding something interesting, but typically ending up wasting time over stuff you...

Does love mean never having to say you’re sorry?
By Anthony Buono

Dear Anthony,

I have gotten very serious recently with a man I met on Ave Maria Singles. My only reservation so far is that I have never heard him say he is sorry for anything. I seem to be the only one who has to be sorry for things. If I try to tell him about things I think he should be sorry about, he gets defensive and upset and says I’m ungrateful. I’m starting to feel like I’m no good for him, and guilty for feeling a little bitter inside because he won’t ever say he’s...

How well can you train a man?
By Anthony Buono

Dear Anthony,

I’m frustrated. I have dated several women now that I really hit it off with and then they end up wanting the upper hand in the relationship. I’m all for making a woman happy, but I don’t like feeling like I’m expected to know my place, if you know what I mean. Is there any hope of meeting a woman who doesn’t feel they have to train me?

First, I want to applaud you for being bold enough to reach out and ask a question like this. There are so many men who feel the...

Seven types of false love
By Anthony Buono

There is nothing quite like being in love and sharing a loving relationship. You often hear about finding “true love,” but we seldom stop to think about what that means.

To consider this properly, you need to know a little something about true love. What makes it true? There is much to say about true love, and there are so many various opinions as to what makes love true. True love is a mystery; almost impossible to put into words.

But we do have a guideline for what makes for true...

Would you date you?
By Anthony Buono

Would the type of person you are praying to meet and fall in love with find you attractive?
 
When and if it should happen that you meet someone special, fall in love, and get married, the process starts with you. This is the premise of my first book, “Would You Date You?”
 
I appeared on “The Catholic Guy” show last week to talk about my new book. Lino Rulli and Fr. Rob were in rare form as they attempted to figure out just what the title was supposed to mean. And we must have...

Opposites attract, but can they go the distance?
By Anthony Buono

Dear Anthony,

I’ve recently started dating a girl who everyone says is wrong for me. They don’t like that I broke up with a girl who seemed perfect for me in order to date this girl I’m seeing now. I keep telling people opposites attract just to get them off my back. But honestly, I have no idea why I’m interested in her. I can understand why my family think she’s wrong for me. I just can’t help it.  Did I make a huge mistake I’m going to regret?

Did you make a mistake because...

Finding a good Catholic restaurant
By Anthony Buono

“I know a great little place where we can get some good, authentic Catholic cuisine.” How would you react if your date made that statement? If you’re being honest, wouldn’t you silently stare at that person with a blank look on your face, and think to yourself “Um…I think I’ll go home now?”

I have never actually heard of anyone experiencing this, but I’m starting to believe that it’s probably coming soon. More and more I hear of Catholics trying to find the...

Tired of being alone, or, the singles trap
By Anthony Buono

“Dear Anthony,
I’m absolutely fed up! I’m done! I’m tired of the singles trap and everyone telling me it’s just not my turn yet! Why isn’t it my turn? Why must it take so long? I’m tired of being alone! I’m tired of having no one to share my life with! I’m trying not to be upset with God, but seriously, enough is enough! And if you tell me it will happen in God’s time, I’m done with you too. I don’t mean any disrespect, but I can’t handle hearing anymore pious mumbo...
