Episode 4

I Ain't 'Fraid of No Ghosts

An invisible man

Sleepin' in your bed (or in your head)

Ow, who you gonna call?

Ghostbusters!

...I ain't 'fraid of no ghosts!

Ghostbusters aren't real outside of that great 80's movie and its regrettable remake in 2016, but in Episode Four of The Dating After Divorce Survival Guide writer, Christie Glascoe a.k.a. Chatterbox Christie (chatterboxchristie.com), is a real-life Ghostbuster. When it comes to dating she's got some strong opinions on what "ghosting" is and why it happens. Just like a Ghostbuster, she takes aim at the people who ghost and calls them out for being what they are.

Eric Payne

I got divorced in 2015 then wandered around in the aftermath as a lost, emotional mess. Men have feelings too! I created The Dating After Divorce Survival Guide to provide a path to emotional well-being that I never received and to tell the truth — men are just as scared as women (maybe more) when it comes to rejection and failing at love. But like me, if you're willing to dig deep, work hard on yourself, and not play the blame game you can turn divorce into a springboard to discover yourself, discover joy, and maybe find love again or maybe for the first time.

I'm Chicago-born, New York City-bred, and currently residing in Atlanta. A marketing and advertising guy most of my adult life, a writer since the second grade, and a storyteller since before even then, I've published two books of poetry, a parenting book, and the groundbreaking fatherhood and marriage blog, MakesMeWannaHoller.com. I have no problem laughing at myself and sharing the lessons my failures have taught me. I believe in superheroes, practice gratitude every chance I get, and annoy my kids by being a super-loving father.
