Drop Online Dating And Find Real Life Chemistry
Back And Forth With Online Dating? Maybe it's time to go back to traditional methods.
  • 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.

Food for thought!

Guys, Can We Bring Back Chivalry?

By

I can’t tell you how many seminars and workshops I attend where the topic of chivalry in dating comes up.  Usually, women complain there are no chivalrous men anymore and that chivalry is dead.  Men counter back and say if chivalry is dead, you killed it!  Back and forth we go as the battle of the sexes heats up!  No one wins the game ...

How To Maintain Your "Femme Fatale" While In Uniform

By

Men have long thought women in uniform to be sexy especially with the possibility of her toting a gun on her side (think Mr. and Mrs. Smith!). Even the idea of her giving orders in an authoritarian way can present images to them of what she's like in the bedroom! However, many women that I have spoken to are not quite as bold and dramatic as that type of ... Read more

Long Hair, Don't Care…Think Again!

By

Who could ever forget the actress Keri Russell (aka Felicity) and those lovely, long curly tresses as she played a "doey-eyed" freshman in college in the TV series "Felicity?"
