- Don't be ashamed to ask your family and friends for help. I know you're a high powered attorney who does not want to call your mommy for help with dating, but what do you have to lose? She will be quite happy to just see her daughter walk down the aisle. And if her match for you works out, then she'll have something to brag about and more importantly, you'll have a husband or long term mate. This is probably the best way to meet people other than college. Your family and friends know you inside and out and are really your best dating advocates to find love.
- Take time to just have great experiences. Let's face it. Life is stressful. We're stressed on our jobs, stressed with our kids, and now we place stress on our dating lives. Well, as you can imagine, it can be hard to date someone when you're stressed out about it. This is the one area of life where it should still be fun and relaxing. When you put so much pressure on yourself to find someone, your potential suitors will feel that, and want no parts of it.
Now, I know this is easier said than done. But let's think about it. Anything in life worth having, you are going to have to work hard to get. Relationships are not an exception to this rule. Nothing comes easy. Even married couples who have been married for 20 years or so can probably attest to the fact that it has not been without a struggle. There are simply no real short cuts in life. Sure, it may sound simple to post your profile online and then do nothing, but then ask yourself what have been your results?
As the seasons change, maybe we should consider changing our dating lifestyles too. Challenge yourself to try meeting as many people as possible, even without the possibility of meeting that special someone. I think you'll find a true gem in this space because you're now allowing God or the Universe to work for you. The more you're out and about experiencing life, you'll find that people will attract to you for that reason. And the more people that are attracted to you, the better your chances of meeting that special person.
