Complicated?

Filed under Blog

warningI was on my Facebook today and noticed under Relationship Status there was an option for “It’s Complicated.”  Which lead me to the thought of why not “I’m Complicated!” and while we are at it lets toss some more in the mix…I’m not perfect!

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all came with warning labels?  “High Maintenance, Fears Commitment, Co-Dependent, Momma’s Boy, Jealous Tendencies etc.” Imagine being on a first date and being able to see that person’s true authentic self.  No games, no hidden agendas’ just the real person.  We could decide right there if we were interested in a second date.

How to tell if this is Normal or If He’s Just Not into You

You are trucking along fine. You’ve met a great guy. He’s calling all the time.
You go out and things are marvelous! You tell all your friends about the great new guy you’re dating. You even start to think of him as your boyfriend. Then all of the sudden, he stops calling. Or, he tells you to call him and he is suddenly busy. Read more

Dating in your thirties, I feel is different then dating in your twenties, or your teens. Well of course you say, its uncharted territory, and ever changing with time. We are ever changing with time. We grow, we become more knowledgeable, sometimes more jaded.

Finding Love and Romance

love-3

I have been getting a ton of inquiries in my email lately from people who read my blog and want to know more about how they can get involved in my dating service and what it is really all about. It certainly isn’t anything like any of the online dating sites out there. In fact, it is very different from online dating. Think of me as an old fashion matchmaker. It actually makes my skin crawl that people buy into the whole letting a computer decide who is right for you theory. We are real people, with real feelings and real emotions that need to be handled with real care and sometimes even a little touch love. Read more

porchswingAs a matchmaker I am usually the one that friends, family, even strangers turn to when they need advice on their love life.   This means I hear ALL the stories, the good, the bad and the ugly! More often then not it typically boils down to one thing…is this the person right for me, how can I tell, how can I be sure?

Well the answer is you can’t be sure and only YOU can make that decision.   We don’t come with warning labels, expiration dates or guarantees!  Read more

As you may have guessed, this is always the busiest time of year for a matchmaker.  Everyone wants a date for Valentines Day!  Well almost everyone…So far this week I have talked to two of my friends that are in relationships and they are actually dreading Valentines Day!  What?  Are you crazy?  They both have boyfriends and they are dreading Valentines Day!  What about those of us that don’t have someone special to share this most romantic day of all days with!  How dare you complain about Valentines Day, you have a boyfriend!

Active within 24 hours!

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard of that one phrase destroying a potentially good relationship.  Most recently I was talking a good friend in DC down from what could have been a very self destructive plan.  She had been dating this guy for about 2 months and decided it was time to take down her online dating profile.  When she signed on (after not signing on in two months) she chuckled because the site had generated a new match for her and it was her new boyfriend.  She went to his profile out of curiosity and discovered that he was “Active within 24 hours!” Read more

Call it what you want but we all know it is true…they really do! I was talking with two of my friends today that having recently entered into new relationships and they both had the same critical concerns. “Everything has been going so great but now, I feel like he is pulling back…” Well of course he is! He has just realized that it is more than just “dating” and it scares the %^#@ out of him. Let him be. Do not chase. The more you pursue, the more he will retreat. Give him some space, stop over analyzing and let it take its own natural course.

I was entertained last night cruising the web when I can across this article in the New York Post.  With all the experts in my field, I never would have thought we would be taking advice from a 9 year old.  Alec Greven is a fourth grader who apparently has done some research on the playground.  His new book How to Talk to Girls is now available nationwide.

Alec gives us advise on dating that tends to follow my own train of thought,  KIS…keep it simple. Read more

Still looking for love online?

In today’s society we are governed by 3 things.  The laws of man, the laws of God and peer pressure.  The first two do not apply to the internet and online dating.  On line dating is not policed by anyone, which makes it easy for people to exaggerate the truth and flat out lie.  I can’t even count how many times people have told me of their frustrations with lies about age, weight, income and appearance while using online dating sites.

Dinner and a Movie? NOT!!!

dateHow many times have you heard of the “dinner and a movie date” for a first date?  TOO MANY!

Let’s start with dinner shall we…Dinner dates remind me of one thing, an inquisition!  You sit across the table from each other, already nervous, and then one of you starts with the questions…”so you are divorced, how long were you married, what happened, what do you do for work etc.!”  Let’s face it; it is like a round of ping pong with the questions Read more

Long Distance Relationships

handsA friend of mine recently become involved in a long distance relationship (LDR) and asked me for some advice on how to make it work.  I sort of giggled because the only LDR I have ever had failed horribly!  Then got to thinking, well how could it have worked?  What could I have, or he have done differently?

I believe you have to have something to look forward to!  When will you see each other again!  If possible, alternate trips so that neither Read more

tree1Consider this before you go on your next date:  Sometimes it’s not about who you have been in the past or even who you are today but more about who you want to become…

In this complicated world of dating and relationships I believe there are two very clear, black and white types of relationships.  I choose to define them in a very simple way at this point in my life…or maybe it’s just the cold medicine kicking in…LOL!

There are those people out there that help you.  People who are supportive in your decisions and life choices and inspire you to best Read more

Who doesn’t enjoy the first few weeks of dating someone new?  The pursuit in going strong!  The attraction is at it’s highest point!  And he is pulling out his best A-game…the sweet and sometimes racy text messages 4 or 5 times a day, the romantic evenings when he actually listens to what you have to say, the way he mentally undresses you in public, the spark that runs up your spine every time his hands hold yours, the fact that he makes the time in his schedule to meet you in the Target parking lot for 5 minutes just to steal a kiss in the middle of the day!
