Love is Constant

Times feel a little strange when it comes to dating. It may feel that the universe is playing a trick on you when you feel ready to mingle and meet new people, but a pandemic has put life and your dating life especially at a standstill. Have no fear! Hope is not gone during this time. Love is a constant and will always be there for the taking. Your love life does not have to stop, nor does it need to feel impossible. It may look a little different right now, but big love is still out there for you and will never cease. With summer approaching, summer love is still possible! Follow these tips below for dates even during this challenging time in the world.

  1. Get creative and get outside!

Try and get outside! All this time indoors and cooped up has caused us all to have a bit of cabin fever. There is nothing better than a hike, a walk, a picnic ( 6 feet apart of course 🙂 ) or just sitting on a bench, chatting the day away. Get to know your date in a fun, casual, and outdoors kind of way.

2. Try a new outdoor activity

Playing volleyball, shooting hoops, a tennis match, or a fun round of golf. These make for a perfect outdoor date! Who doesn’t love a little competition, right? You may learn a thing or two.

3. If you still feel like it is not safe to date in person, continue skype and Facetime.

There is nothing wrong with taking it slow and getting to know your date during this time. It can really allow for a deeper and more meaningful connection. You get to know your date on a truer level and are not distracted by the fancy restaurant, expensive wine, or just overall atmosphere that can sometimes be misleading. It has its benefits to really get to know someone at a slower pace.

1. What is your go-to first date outfit? What do you recommend for making a stylish first impression?An A-line dress or a sheath type of dresses would be perfect.

Am I Too Picky?

Am I too picky? Im sure you have asked yourself that question, one too many times! Seeing love all around you, the holidays are quickly approaching, engagements seeming to be everywhere…why am I single? Am I really that picky? Is a man with a full head of hair and teeth too much to ask for?!

Brown Sand Love Text on Seashore

On a serious note, no, you are not too picky. In fact, I can’t stand that question. It is 100% ok to have preferences, standards, and to set the bar high. We are talking about a life partner, right? Having standards that are realistic is what matters. If you have to have a supermodel that has perfectly white teeth, a shredded body, and millions in the bank, then maybe you need to reevaluate.

Man Lifting Dumbells

You are not perfect, therefore, you can’t expect perfection. I always recommend, choose two physical characteristics that really stand out to you. If you like a tall man, focus on height and one more quality. Choose 5 non negotiable inner qualities that you want in a partner. Focus on these traits. Embody these traits! If you want someone who is kind, generous, loving, active.. you need to be all of the things too! Focus on becoming the best version of yourself.

Knowing what you want is so important, while staying open to possibilities. Maybe your guy is 5’11 instead of 6 feet but hilarious and has the best smile. You can live with that, right?  So, stay open, have fun in the process, and love will soon be tapping you on the shoulder.

Love Vs Fear

Are you struggling being single? Do you feel that you put in a ton of effort but still have no dates, no men, no NOTHING? It is not that you are meant to be single, called to be single, or that the world is holding out on you. In fact, you are meant to have love! It is for you. It is your birthright. So, if you are looking for a sign, this is your sign. Love is just around the corner. It is about choosing love, being love, and most importantly, believing in love. Follow these tips below, and claim the love that is waiting for you!

  • In all moments, realize you can choose love or fear. Fear is the most common problem when single. Your ego tells you that you can’t have love, that maybe it is not meant for you, that there are no quality men or women, etc, etc. You in those moments of fear based thoughts, can choose love! See yourself as love and it will be here before you know it!

  • Love is not just for the special people. Love is for all! Remember that no one is more deserving for a soulmate. We all are! In times of doubt, remember that you are negatively special

  • Believe. You truly have to believe that your love desire and yearning for a partner is the truth! Keep deciding that love is for you and I promise, it will be

Heart-shaped Red Neon Signage

Fear is the biggest problem with singles today. We are so consumed with thoughts that just are not the truth. If you keep focusing on love and becoming love, your love life will start to shift. It is all about your mindset and setting an intention.

How To Be Irresistible To Men

Ever wonder how some women have men just flock and swoon over them with little to no effort? You see that girl with men always surrounding her or just worshipping the ground she walks on? You sit back and think, ” what does she have that I don’t?” First of all, it is your energy. A light, carefree, unattached, beautiful energy about yourself. It starts from within. It actually has nothing to do with your physical appearance. Men feel that carefree and light hearted nature. Not a desperate, oh my God, you need to pick me, energy. Some tips below will help you be a man magnet and get you the love that you deserve.

  • Confidence and eye contact

Confidence is so important and incredibly attractive to a man. Men love a woman who knows who she is and what she wants. Eye contact shows a man that you are approachable. Hold eye contact for 5 seconds ( yes, seems like an eternity) and flash a smile. He will be sure to come up to you.

  • Sexiness Not Desperate

Not appearing too desperate or needy is very attractive to men. They do not want you to call or text a million times. They are attracted to a woman who is strong, independent, and has a life of her own.

  • Humor

Women are not  the only ones who love to laugh! Men can’t help but find a funny woman irresistible. Funny, smart, beautiful? Men just can’t help but swoon. Wit and a great sense of humor out weigh any physical attractive trait.

  • Up beat attitude

A bright outlook is such a sexy trait. Men find it to be refreshing and addicting to be around. Who likes a bleak personality? Ummm, no one. Smile, be carefree, and exude a loving disposition, and any man will fall for you.

Deal Killers For a First Date

Sometimes you really only get one shot with a date. That dream girl or dream guy. They say, you only have one chance to make a first impression. This stands true! As nerve wracking as dating is in general, it is important to put your best foot forward and be prepared to really be the best version of yourself. Sometimes, there is not second chance. You can’t turn back time and redo things that you once did on your date. Soooo… be prepared and go into a date with a positive attitude and most importantly, a big smile. Follow the tips below and your first impression will be a lasting one.

  • Be Positive

Stay away from negative and heavy topics.  No one wants to hear about your horrific ex, how catastrophic dating is, how you hate your job, boss, life, car..blah blah,blah. Check Please!

  • Don’t bring up future dates with other people

This is a huge turn off. No one wants to hear about the 5 or 6 other potentials you are juggling. Not a good look. Your date does not want to feel like just a number. Plus, no need to talk about it. If it goes well, you may not need to go out with others!

  • Checking your phone

Ahhh! This is the worst. 60% of people consider this to be deal breaker. This is not challenging to understand. Your date wants your full attention and for you to be present. You don’t want to appear disinterested and that your phone addiction is real.

  • Don’t Get Drunk

This seems like an obvious one, but throwing back several drinks to calm the nerves, is not the best choice. Stick to a two drink maximum. You do not want to embarrass yourself and get sloppy drunk. That will guarantee not being asked out again. Not the goal, right?

  • Wearing a lame t-shirt or sloppy outfit

It is important to dress to impress. Men, Ed Hardy is over. No graphic tees, please! Show up in something that shows confidence and effort. Ladies, show up in something that is feminine and exudes your beauty.  No potato sacks or baggy tees. Trust me on this.
