Want to try Tinder?

Have you considered trying Tinder, but fear that it’s only for hookups? So was I until a girlfriend made me do it and it actually landed me a wonderful man! Here are some great reasons to try it and some tips for you if you decide to start swiping. First, Tinder is great because you won’t get messages from guys unless you choose them. This is HUGE! No wading through tons of emails from men you aren’t interested in or who are totally unsuitable. Also, your matches will be geographically desirable for the most part, as long as you don’t use the app while you’re travelling. If dating someone who lives near you is important to you, it’s easy enough to ask where they live. Don’t be worried about hookups. Sure, some guys want casual relationships, but they’re not confined to Tinder. The best way to avoid being asked to […]

I’d do it all again to find love

After more than a decade as a single mom, many false starts, and a few absolute disasters, I finally married the love of my life in May. I met him on Tinder, mere weeks after being dumped via text by a man I really liked. Yes, it even happens to love coaches my friends! If you’re thinking of giving up on love, please don’t.

It really doesn’t have to take that long. First, determine that you WILL find love. It’s up to you. You’re not going to […]

Stop Texting and Meet Him Already

Do you often match with a new guy online or an app and then text each other for weeks on end? If so, you need to stop texting and meet him already! If you’re serious about getting into a real relationship, it pays to use your time and emotional energy wisely. You simply can’t afford to invest weeks (or longer) in back and forth texting with men you’re not meeting. Instead, learn how to turn the text messages into phone conversations. Once you’ve spoken on the phone once or twice, you can schedule a time to meet in person in the reasonably near future. I promise that using this one tip will help you avoid so many undesirable situations, such as ending up with guys who are; married, dating tons of other women, catfishing, too busy with their jobs, kids, travel, video games, whatever, to have a real relationship with […]

Is Your Right Guy Out There?

How romantic is it to believe that the perfect guy for you is out there and that when the time is right, you’ll meet him? All the chick flicks tell us that this how it is, or at least, how it should be. I believed that myth for almost a decade. I truly thought that if I waited, without doing much of anything else, the right guy would simply turn up and everything would be fantastic. For most of us, it just doesn’t work that way. It’s much more likely that believing those things will end up keeping you single for much longer than you would be if you were more proactive. After spending nearly a decade waiting, I spent another few years figuring out how to make my dream of love happen. That was much more effective. You don’t need to burn as much time on this as I […]
