Too Much Time With Your EX Sabotages Your Chances of Meeting A New Partner

Today in Dear Sybersue's weekly video she discusses how spending to much time with your EX can sabotage your chances of meeting a new partner.

It's wonderful that you can get along with your EX but they are your EX for a reason. If you are looking for a new relationship in the future it is not a good idea to spend most of your free time with your past partner. Think about it, how much time from your busy day do you have left over to give to someone else?

Your priorities should be about moving on in a different direction that brings you happiness. Friends with benefits with your EX is not a healthy place to put yourself; it just prolongs the breakup aftermath!

Abraham Hicks: Don’t put up with anything that doesn’t make you feel good

This video is a great reminder for all of us who are having trouble achieving our goals, finding love in our lives or just feeling happy in general. Life is stressful and very hard to deal with sometimes. Positive thinking and "believing" you deserve great things are very powerful thoughts that will bring you more of what you desire.

You are thinking,"Ya right!" "What a bunch of BS!"

How are those thoughts working for you? They're not right? That's kind of my point with this post. In order to manifest what you want, you have to reduce the negative noise in your head.

The more you think about what you don't have or people who make your life difficult, you are giving power to that vibration. The less you think about those hurtful things in your life the more time you can give to scenarios that better your existence.

Of course it isn't easy to bury hurtful comments or bad times in your life but you can replace them with new thoughts that are happier.

If you wake up sad, depressed or maybe even angry, spend the first 15 minutes of your day watching something happy on TV, YouTube or any other social media site you may be apart of. How can you not smile when you see a few funny animal videos, a laughing baby or by watching a comedy show? At least it takes you away mentally for a few minutes first thing in the morning. Do this a few times a day when you feel down and eventually your thoughts will be less tormented by what isn't working for you.

You may be skeptical about Abraham Hicks or Esther's ability to relay these messages to us all, but they do make one Hell of a lot of sense regardless. I am open to many things in life and the more I can learn, the more I grow.

I will graciously take all the teaching tools offered to me and make them work to the best of my ability.

Hope you liked this message today. Sending happy thoughts to you all. <3

Are You too Needy in Most of Your Relationships?

Canadian Talk Show Host Susan McCord (aka Dear Sybersue) discusses a big problem that many people face in relationships today. When you are dealing with insecurities or drama from your past it can play a big part in who you choose as a partner or it can sabotage potential relationships from happening.

Being needy isn't endearing to others as it comes off as manipulative or controlling and wears thin after a while. Wanting to be with someone is a totally different concept to needing to be with someone.

No one wants to feel suffocated and neither do they want to have to answer to someone 24/7! Pay attention to the type of partner you are allowing into your life as there may be a pattern that you are not aware of. If you have some deep rooted negative programming that you just can't seem to change from the past, it might be time to talk to a professional about it.

You deserve to be happy and it is never too late to make changes.

A Whole Lot of Mojito/Latino & Date Night Fun at Baru Restaurant in Vancouver

I am very excited to be writing an article on the Baru Latino restaurant because it is my favorite place to eat and hang out in the Kitsilano hood! It has a downtown atmosphere feel to it without having to cross over the bridge to get there.

What makes this place so special? Pretty much everything! One of the main reasons to visit this highly popular spot, besides the incredible food and the ambience; is the “hands on” owners!

Rene Lafleur is one of the owners (yes, he is related to hockey legend Guy Lafleur - his dad’s second cousin!) and despite his very French name, he does not speak the language. Rene spent 12 years as a drummer with the band “Star Collector” who proudly have 4 full length albums. He is the numbers geek, wine guy and host at Baru.

Co-owner Dave Newis has been a kitsilano fixture for many years working in numerous establishments & known as a bartender extraordinaire! Dave also traveled Canada playing beach volleyball. He is the “attention to detail” Milieu expert at Baru!

Dave’s wife Zeta Newis is the Head Chef at Baru and also co-owner of Baru Rubs & Sauces with Rene’s wife Nina Lafleur! This definitely adds validity to the clichĂ©; “Those who play together stay together!”

Baru Rubs and Sauces may have only been around for 2 years, but these two entrepreneurial women already have their products in 5 whole Food stores and 8 other various stores throughout BC. Who needs the Dragons Den to promote your business when you have these two go-getters!

Baru Latino was an established name & venue when Dave & Rene decided to delve into this business. They loved the space on sight! Tired of working for someone else & spending so much time throwing their own dinner parties, they decided to look for a place to call their own!

Both owners are originally from Alberta, moved to Vancouver in 1991, met here & have been friends for 12 years. Business partners for 8 years, they are quite the characters & each offers something different and unique to the restaurant. Talk about meeting someone at “the right place at the right time” and what a great team they are!

They make it work so well and the "dinner party theme" is definitely the feel you get when you walk in the door! The atmosphere is fun and romantically contagious.

Chef Zita Newis, sous chef Mathew Wilson, cooks Tristen Jones and Kristy Averves are responsible for the amazing food reputation at Baru. The guava glazed 10 oz pork chop & ceviche are my favorites but everything on the menu is fantastic!

They encourage family style sharing and the restaurant is pleasantly affordable with the most expensive entree; Steak Chimmichurri 7oz Sirloin steak, with chimmichurri sauce, served with jalapeno potato pave and topped with a smoky corn salsa served with seasonal vegetables priced at $31.

The menu is 95% gluten free excluding the bread & chocolate lava cake! It is also nut free with the exception of a few behind the bar! (Dave’s words not mine!)

Steak Chimmichurri

Baru's Famous Pork Chop


The dining area at Baru seats 44-48 people with an additional 15 bar seats. It is a popular location for many functions/private parties and has been voted as a great date night hangout! It’s not uncommon for online daters to meet up here for their first rendezvous. The beautiful actress Natalie Portman was seen dining in Baru along with many other visiting and local celebrities. They love the cozy non-pretentious atmosphere!

Seasonal White Fish 

The incredible lighting and uniquely flavored mojito drinks give it a romantic flare that makes couples feel amorous! There is a happy hour available every day of the week from 5-6:30 which includes $5 red/white sangria, double mojitos for $7, red or white wine $6 for a 6oz glass ($9 for a 9oz glass) and 1516 beers for $4. This is very affordable especially for those "first date" evenings!

Raspberry Mojito

*Mention this article when making your “date night” reservation and Baru will offer you something special to help with those "first date" jitters!

Baru Latino Restaurant participates in Dine Out Vancouver every year and has many repeat customers due to how much they enjoy their first dining experience at Baru! They can’t wait to come back!

There is entertainment available on special evenings so please check out the Baru website for more information or call the restaurant anytime to find out what’s happening. (604) 222- 9171

Make your reservations soon and don’t miss out on this incredible Latino experience at 2535 Alma Street on the west side of Vancouver. There is free parking available underground behind the restaurant.

Dear Sybersue answers a viewers question about how to avoid running into her Ex on a regular basis! She is really trying to move on from him but seeing her ex so often makes it very difficult.

It keeps playing with her emotions and brings up unanswered questions that she thought she was getting past. It is like stripping off the band-aid too soon and re-opening the scar! Even at times when she thinks she is really over him and is feeling good about things, seeing him breaks her heart all over again.

What should she do? Has this happened to you?

Vancouver Meetup Suppot Group For Women Dealing With a Divorce or Breakup

Ladies I started a Meetup Group about 9 months ago in Vancouver which you may be interested in if you are single and trying to get over a past relationship. It is open to women of all ages!

WOMEN -Vancouver (Support Group for Singles/Divorced/Ge­tting over a Breakup)

The Second Tuesday of Every Month 2017 (With the exception of September where it will be one week earlier on Sept 5th)

6:30 PM
Bar One
1759 West Broadway (Burrard), Kitsilano Vancouver, BC

Ladies are you going through a separation, bad breakup or a divorce? Are you having a hard time getting over your previous relationship? Are you stuck in a pattern that isn't working?

Regardless of which scenario you are dealing with, this is one of the most difficult times that you will live in your life. Heartbreak is painful and the grieving period can last a long while without any support to help you through it.

There are so many emotions that take over and impede us from moving on; plus we tend to stop ourselves from sharing how we really feel with others, which keeps us in our head blaming ourselves.

This women's meetup group is set up to create a safe, nonjudgmental space to share with each other and offers an opportunity to speak to a professional who works in solving these types of issues every day.

At every event, we’ll hold an informal & fun get-together where we’ll share our top tips to release your emotions, as well as ways to deal with the initial wave of loneliness. It is an important part of healing to feel safe, validated and have the freedom to discuss your personal thoughts.

This is a place for you to safely interact among others who understand what you are going through because they may be dealing with the same experience. You are not alone.

Who is the Group Organizer:

Susan McCord (Known to many as Dear Sybersue) who has over 19,000 followers on her blog, 13,800 Facebook followers and over 1.6 million views on her YouTube Talk Show has devoted her career to helping others find happiness. Everyone deserves love in their life! Over the past decade she has established a stellar reputation as a sought-after relationship expert, advice columnist, published author, blogger & life coach.

Susan has been there done that and has so many t-shirts she could open a store! She is here to share her story and life's trials and tribulations with anyone who needs her wisdom. She makes you think! You can learn more about her at and

We invite you to bring your questions so that we’re able to answer anything you want to talk about during the meetup.

Please RSVP within the group here on the Meetup site so we know how many women will be joining us and out of respect for my time and our chosen venue so they have the correct reservation numbers.

***When you RSVP, PLEASE show up and don't bail at the last minute as we do have a numbers limit at these meetups. Please order something at the restaurant even if it is just a drink as they are giving us their time & space for those two hours.***

Please click on this link to go directly to the Meetup Group to join and RSVP!

Thank you very much and I look forward to meeting you!

Susan :)

How do I find A Boyfriend in Vancouver? Original question on Quora

This is the big question in Vancouver! Brad is so right that you have to be friendly and talk to people all the time, and not just guys you might be interested in dating. The happier you appear and the more receptive you are to meeting new people, the more you will be noticed.

Vancouver is a transient place and can feel very isolating at times, but you can break through with a little effort. I agree with John that meetup groups in Vancouver are a great place to socialize. I belong to a few myself and also run my own group as well.

The big trick is not to fall into the trap that many men & women do in this city by complaining how hard it is to meet someone here. If everyone changed up their attitude and said hi to one another, things would turn around in the dating scene. Keep smiling and don’t get frustrated. Believe in love and you will find it. <3 Susan McCord The Dear Sybersue Talk Show

You were doing OK but now it seems worse because they are sharing their life without you in it! Are you still really in love with them or is it your tarnished ego that's taking a beating?
