Diva Rebecca is a self proclaimed relationship expert, web mistress and columnist who owns and
operates the successful advice website
AdviceDiva.Com . What began as a few columns in a local
Houston magazine turned into a colossal love and relationships advice website, online since 2004.
"I’ve dated more than Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City….but I still consider her my personal rock star."
Most of her expertise is centered around breakups and getting back together with an ex after being dumped.
Instead of telling her love-bitten, teary-eyed seekers of advice to move on with your life, she
believes that the breakup indicates a fundamental break down of special building blocks in the
relationship, and those blocks can be mended or replaced altogether. You don’t have to give up
and turn away thinking all has been lost. There is always hope. And Diva Rebecca knows that
sometimes hope is what people really need. In addition to an information packed website, she
also has a book explaining to people
how to get your ex back which can be downloaded in adobe (PDF) format.
