Cosmic cupid dating
I got pricing from the hotel for the open bar and food, wrote the guest list (only 50 people from my side, immediate family only and friends from high school/college/life) called the church I sometimes go to and booked a tentative date, (last weekend of April, 2008) and called my uncle and told him to save the date. (Of course, it’s still in the early stages.) Every press mention my business has received has been clipped and hung on my bulletin board. Rock to make your own slide show.) My business has tripled in the past 6 months.
I made a slide show of my affirmations, using pictures of everything from the type of body I want to have to piles of money to a clip of someone reading their credit rating to the new apartment I want to have. The money flows in and, like with most businesses, flows right back out.
A lot of men make this assumption on their own without ever asking us. They have more options than we do and don’t have to ask us. I was having a conversation with Evan Marc Katz recently.
If you don’t know who he is, he’s a well known dating/relationship expert that started e-Cyrano, an online dating profile writing company.
So use online dating in conjunction with 2-3 other ways to meet someone. Take a home improvement class or a cooking class or a writing class. Switch it up or do all these things in conjunction with each other. Really work on being approachable in any situation. Go to bars to socialize, to hang out, to de-stress. And it’s usually one of these: We want it all right now. We assume that if someone doesn’t feel the same way we do when we do then they aren’t right for us.
Walk with your head up, make eye contact, smile…it at the deli, on the subway, at church…where ever. But don’t go to a bar with the specific intent of meeting a man. Ladies – Stop going out in groups of 3 or more single friends. Ignoring issues that are getting in the way of being happy and secure? We grow resentful of those people who do have an easier time meeting someone and that resentment morphs in to bitterness and negativity. A fear that we will never meet anyone, that we will end up alone.
Evan tried to tell me that women should just delete those e-mails and not give them a second thought.It’s about thinking “as if.” In January, I joined Dating Dummy’s Blog Wide Workout group.I cut out pictures of Jessica Biehl and hung them over my desk on my bulletin board.Most will assume that a 38 year old woman will want kids. The age we are at (35-40) is probably the toughest of all. They’re contacting me because they think “She’s 38 and using online dating so she must be somewhat anxious or desperate and will give me a second glance.” If they’re not thinking that way, then they are men so lacking in self-awareness that you wouldn’t want to date them anyway.In a man’s mind, we’re on the cusp between wanting kids and not wanting kids. I know exactly what you’re talking about in regards to being contacted by people you would never in a million years consider dating. Of course, one or two of them are genuinely nice guys whom you might share a connection, but guilt by association screws them.
