Post Valentine's Day—How to Be Happily In Love Next Year
Valentine's Day can be a downer if you're not happily in love. But it can also be a wake-up call!

Second, create a dating game plan, starting with going online. There are good ways to date online, and there are unworkable ways to go about it. The internet can be a powerful tool to help you jump start your love life, if you know how to use it wisely. The first step is to create a compelling profile complete with essays that convey something about you. The second step is to post great pictures. The third step is to widen your personal criteria as you do searches. What if there is a guy who is everything you have ever wanted, and he’s one year older than the range you selected? It’s better to cast a wide net and then narrow as you contact people than it is to have a narrow one.

The fourth step is to invest time in internet dating. While you’re sitting there watching American Idol, do a little surfing through your chosen online pool and send out a few messages. You never know what you can reel in! For in-depth coaching on how to date safely and strategically online, get my newest eBook, Internet Dating for the Savvy Single. It will be released by the end of March 2012. Look for it through my author page on Your Tango and on amazon.com.

This is just a starting point, but hopefully you can use some of these ideas to ditch the Valentine’s Day blues quickly and get back in the game. Active, intentional, and positive wins the day every time. All it takes is the first step in the right direction, and seeking support and encouragement along the way. Check out personal Singlescoaching for world class coaching to help you along the way.
