Dating Like A Dog
It's a dog's life!

Imagine for a second how simple dating would be if we conducted it like a dog. Stay with me on this while I elaborate ...

If we were dogs, this is how we might go about meeting one another. Our masters would take us to a park where we all can play with each other. We could casually run into each other. Then we'd immediately sniff each other (no details needed here about how dogs would do this) – maybe see if we each have good breath. If we have chemistry, then perhaps we can have our master throw the ball so we can play together. If we get bored playing and wrestling together, we can go meandering around and find another dog with whom to play. We would keep this up until we find that dog in the park with whom we have complete and utter chemistry.

Meeting people like dogs would be great in a lot of ways. Dogs don’t get drunk before they go to the park, and then wonder who’s going to be the designated driver. Dogs don’t need to bring six annoying friends with them when they go out to meet others. Dogs never worry what the right thing is to say to another dog, because they’re all about natural chemistry.

Also, if a dog doesn’t want to play anymore with another dog, it just growls and the other dog will walk away. When a woman has to deal with an annoying drunk guy at a bar, she can’t growl to get him to leave, nor can she simply ignore him to get him to leave.

Think for a second if there was this great park where we could all go and play. Think about the money that could be saved by not going to all those bars and clubs.

In reality what’s so amazing about this concept, is that dogs never seem to run out of other dogs to meet. Dogs don’t play games. When a dog is excited to see you, it greets you and it doesn’t worry about what you think.

Even a dog that has been abandoned and beaten by previous owners can become open to new experiences again after it receives some nurturing and lots of love from its new family. How many of you have been in bad relationships, and you carry that anger forward into your interactions with everyone you meet? If you were more like a dog, you would treat each opportunity as a new one, and you would not blame new people for things that happened in the past.

Not only that, if we were more like dogs we would handle rejection with ease. When a dog goes over to another dog and that dog doesn’t want to play, the dog just goes away and doesn’t think about it for the next six days like so many of us humans do. It will just find another dog who wants to play, because dogs naturally have the abundance principle in their souls. Or, maybe, dogs just don’t have the power to over-analyze everything like most humans do.

Each day and each moment is a new one for a dog. Each day and each moment for a human could be the same self-torture from the day, month or even year before that.

So in order to have a great time dating, I suggest we petition our local city mayors to build “people parks.” Oh wait . . . we already have those. Every city has a great park (or a great beach, downtown or other gathering spot), so why aren’t we engaging other humans like dogs engage other dogs?

It’s time to embrace your dating life like a dog embraces its life. Realize that your mindset is the only thing keeping you from meeting and attracting the people you want to meet.

 

All the power to you,
