Noted psychologist, Dr. Judi Bloom, joins us from Los Angeles to discuss relationships, divorce and dating and starting over post divorce. Dr. Judi, as she is known to fans of her weekly radio show called Therapy Thursday on KLLY-FM in California, is an expert in relationships, addiction, depression and anxiety disorders.
During the second half of the program, Lesley wonders if it’s proper to go to an ex’s aunt’s funeral and Steve is tormented with having to go to his son’s graduation from college after not seeing his ex in three years since his divorce. Joanie shares how she has dealt with these same situations during the course of her divorce and offers a more mature approach.
Lesley is on Spring Break and Joanie & Steve are holding down the fort in this episode of Single Again! Now What?
The show starts with Joanie providing tips from her forthcoming article in the Huffington Post on how to increase the odds of staying married a second or even third time. As usual, there’s fun and laughs as Joanie and Steve share personal stories and thoughts.

Spring has sprung, and Joanie in Massachusetts, Lesley in Atlanta, and Steve in Detroit are lovin’ it!
We’re calling this episode our Spring Open Forum as we touch on a ton of topics. We talk about disappointments when life doesn’t go your way. We then shift into sports, and as it turns out, Joanie and Lesley are avid sports fans.
Topics discussed in this episode include:
- Do men prefer women who like sports?
- Do men like to shop, and how do you shop for a man?
- Hormone Replacement Therapy thoughts from last week’s show
- Does sex bring you closer to your mate?
- How would you feel if your ex died?

So how are you feeling post divorce? How’s your energy, weight or mood? If you’re feeling in a funk, it may be more than just your divorce, it could be a hormone imbalance.
As we age, both men and women’s hormone levels change. This can result in depression, weight loss/gain, and reduced mental acuity. The loss of healthy hormone levels in women account for their menopause and the reduction of male hormones can cause andropause in men. Women don’t have to suffer through menopause and men don’t have to suffer depression and erectile dysfunction.
Balanced hormone levels in couples can equal a closer, loving bond, and in this episode of Single Again! Now What?, world renowned anti aging physician, Dr. Edward Lichten, joins the show to tell us why.
Joanie, Lesley and Steve talk to Dr. Lichten about:
- Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
- The health benefits of healthy hormone levels
- The ill effects of declining hormone levels
- How hormones can increase your sex drive
- The risks of HRT
- Our toxic environment
- And much more.

Joanie, Lesley and Steve take an online personality assessment test to determine their personality traits. This is a fun test that listeners can take as well for more insight into their traits, and what they should be looking for in a partner. Joanie’s labeled a S. D. I., Lesley a I.D., and Steve’s a I/SD. So what in the world does that mean and can knowing our personality traits improve our relationships?
The online assessment test takes you only about 15-20 minutes to complete. It provides concise, yet very helpful insights based on your answers. The assessment also includes charts and your scores. Don’t look at this as a test as this is something you can’t fail. There are no right or wrong answers, just your individual preferences.
So come along for the ride as we get a better handle on what makes us tick. Only Joanie, Lesley and Steve can make test taking fun! 😉 For more on the Single Again!

In episode #8 of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie, Lesley and Steve explore “The 5 love Languages”, based around the book “The 5 Love Languages” by Dr. Gary Chapman.
After many years of counseling, Dr. Chapman noticed a pattern: everyone he had ever counseled had a “love language,” a primary way of expressing and interpreting love. He also discovered that, for whatever reason, people are usually drawn to those who speak a different love language than their own.
Of the countless ways we can show love to one another, five key categories, or five love languages, proved to be universal and comprehensive—everyone has a love language, and we all identify primarily with one of the five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.
Joanie, Lesley and Steve took the 5 Love Languages assessment on www.5LoveLanguages.com and discuss their results. The question is… what love language do you speak? You’ll have a better idea by the end of this program and catch a few laughs in the process.

In this episode, we discuss the adage, Opposites Attract. However, in many such relationships, after the attraction, the opposite personalities can seem to attack. Why do we tend to be attracted to others who are so different than us? Do they fill the void of qualities we wish we had? Even more interesting is how what we were once attracted to can later repel us.

In this episode of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie, Lesley and Steve discuss Dating after Divorce, is it easier for men or women?
Some think it’s easier for women because men flock to them, and women have the opportunity to say yes or no. Lesley talks about the discomfort of being single and alone at a restaurant or bar when guys feel that because she is alone, they have the right to approach her.
Steve doesn’t see anything wrong approaching a single woman at the bar if she is not wearing a ring as long as it’s done tastefully, and Joanie helps us understand why we do what we do. What would we do without Joanie?
Come along for the fun as we learn, laugh, love and give a “shout out” to Singapore on Single Again! Now What? Episode #6
They’re baaack! Our fun-loving trio is back together to bring you another episode of fun and deep thoughts. This time, the discussion turns to The Stress of Divorce – The Price for Peace.

Stress is no laughing matter, but somehow, Joanie, Lesley and Steve find a way to laugh at themselves and share what they learned through the process of divorce. As they say, “laughter is the best medicine,” and this show is the perscription for your wellbeing.
