How to Prepare Yourself for the Perfect Relationship

The process of dating can be one of the best personal growth experiences you can participate in. How? You may ask. First of all, not only can the dating process help develop self-awareness, it can also prepare you to be in a relationship by putting yourself out there and meeting new people. That act alone takes courage. Dating also prepares you to be honest with your heart, to find exactly what it is you’re looking for, and to allow each date to teach you what you really want in a relationship. If you’ve been single for a long time, gone on a bad date, or jump into a relationship only to realize that the person you’re dating is just not right for you – rather than beating yourself up, ask yourself what it is that you can learn from the experience. What can you do differently next time? Don’t just […]

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 […]

When He Upsets You

We all get upset with our significant other from time to time. It’s impossible to go through life with someone and be on the same page about absolutely everything, but it’s still tough when these things come up. So, what should you do about it? First, think about what he’s done. Are you taking something personally that isn’t about you? You’re absolutely entitled to have your feelings, but what are you making his behavior mean to you? Can you separate the action he took from your feelings about it? For example, if he was late and you feel that it was disrespectful to you, stop and think about what you’re making this event mean. Does it mean that he’s disrespectful? Does it mean that he doesn’t care about you? Does it have to mean that? Could it mean something else? Could it not mean anything? If he does something that […]

Who Are You Becoming?

Who are you becoming in your journey to find love? Are you allowing this experience to help you grow or are you gritting your teeth and hoping that it’s over as soon as possible? What are you learning about yourself and others through the dating process? I truly believe that in my own (very long) search for a life partner, I evolved to become a version of myself who could actually have the great relationship I’m in now. I listened to a podcast recently about how babies learn to walk. As they take their first steps, they – inevitably – fall down, but each time they fall, they get back up. They keep doing this until they’re finally able to walk. It is the very act of falling and getting up over and over again that builds the strength to walk. So keep getting up. Each time you struggle or […]

Date Men Who Are Excited About You

If you decide to date ONLY men who are excited about you and reaching out to you regularly and consistently, you will revolutionize your life! I promise that if you do this one thing you will eliminate 99% of the heartache and angst you experience with dating. The man who isn’t excited about you is not your future husband or your future boyfriend. His enthusiasm for you will not increase over time. Trust me. So ditch the guy who texts you once a week, the guy who vanishes, the guy who’s not following up for more dates, the guy you have to text first, the guy you have to ask out, the guy who waits until the last possible second to ask you out. Away with them! You want the guy who’s excited about you, who can’t wait to see you again, who asks if you’re seeing anyone else, who […]
