Virtual Dating can be fun and requires minimal effort and planning! It takes a lot of the pressure off and you can simply connect and really get to know someone. It can be fun too!

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.

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.

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!

Chasing Men

Ever find yourself so consumed with anxiety after a date? OMG, should I call him, text him, make him mine? What do I need to do? What about if I just send this message or picture? I know every woman has done this. I know I have. We all feel that we need to take so much action in our love life. We all feel if we say the wrong thing or make a mistake, he may not choose us. We all have this desire to join every dating app, dating site, dating event that ever existed in hopes to find our soulmate only to be disappointed. Chasing and hunting never works my friends. It is about inspired action with a clear and aligned heart. You won’t have to chase the right man. You won’t have to remind him of your existence. He will just know. He will know that you are the high quality woman he wants. Let him lead. Let him pursue. Let him chase you. Below are some tips to follow to not be the pursuer, but to be that desirable woman that is a man magnet.

 

  • Be confident. Sounds easy, right? Not so much. It takes inner work and awareness! You need to exude an authentic confidence. Your true essence. Really staying in your power and knowing your worth and what you deserve

Don’t show up like a sloppy Sally or like you threw on a potato sack. Not a good look. Enough said.

 

  • Don’t wear a fancy over the top outfit –

Showing up like a Kardashian on a first date is not the best idea. Less is more. Men do not appreciate high maintenance but a natural beauty.
