2. Build Confidence – That makes you more attractive! Did you know the #1 quality both men and women seek in a long-term partner is confidence? Yeah baby, that’s what I’m talking about. I encourage my dating coaching clients to find ways to improve their self-esteem to feel good about themselves. Doing this will give you a magnetic appeal and help you handle possible rejection as well.
What can you do? For the outside, try a makeover, new hairstyle, or work with a personal trainer. How you feel about your looks definitely influences your confdience level. For the inside, learn how to be kind to yourself, appreciate what’s already wonderful about you and try some positive self talk to shift that internal negative chatter to a more positive train of thought.
3. Take the Pressure Off – Learn how to have fun! When you go out, do you feel pressured to make something happen? That’s a sure way to get disappointed! Learn to relax and go with the flow of whatever takes place during the evening. Maybe you’ll meet the ideal man or a new girlfriend. When you are open to what comes your way, you can simply enjoy yourself which once again, makes you so much more attractive!

Go out with the attitude that you are happy to meet new people and take the pressure off. When you try too hard, there is a risk of feeling deflated. Instead, understand that the more people you know, the more people they can introduce you to! You never know where the kismet of connection will come from. I met my husband on a blind date because I met his sister first. So, be nice to everyone and you’ll have a lot more fun with the process.
4. Forget Your Type – Give more kinds of men a chance! Do you have a type of guy you’re always attracted to and look for him all the time? This is one of the biggest challenges my dating coaching clients face is wanting a specific type of person. Can I encourage you to consider a wider range of men so you end up dating a variety of people?
