Should You Reveal Your Income in Your Online Dating Profile?

reveal your income

Is it best to reveal your income in your online dating profile? And if you do, will it attract higher quality men?  Here’s what I think…

I don’t often feel moved to comment on articles, but this one Why High-Earning Women Should Disclose Their Income on Dating Sites by Emma Johnson is worthy of commentary. Divorced, dating for four years on OKCupid and, Emma is a 38-year old wealthy woman who did not disclose her income when she first started dating. She was attracting men she didn’t like. She decided to reveal her income on OKCupid and guess what happened? The quality of the men who contacted her went way up. She started meeting men with whom she shared common interests. Her conclusion? It’s best to reveal your income on dating sites. I disagree. Here’s why…

Why You Should Wait Before Having Sex

wait before having sex

Have you ever had sex too early or too quickly? It often leaves you with anxiety or heartbreak. Slow it down and wait before having sex. Here’s why…

Here’s a typical scenario that I see over and over with my clients who are dating online: A man contacts a woman. He wants to know if she’s still sexually active and sensual at her age (50’s-70’s). He says that he’s waited to have sex in the past, and sex was bad. So, to save time and energy, he wants to sleep with her right away to see if they’re sexually compatible.

It’s kinda like reading the last page of the book before you’ve started the book. That’s not how relationships work. If you’ve ever jumped into sex too early in a relationship, you know what I’m talking about.

My radio guest, Maureen Ryan, spoke about Dating and Sex: Why They DON’T Go Hand in Hand. Maureen is a nurse practitioner, sex therapist, and sexual wellness counselor. In her private practice she treats individuals and couples with intimacy concerns and sexual dysfunctions. She has a Doctorate in Nursing Practice and is licensed as both an Adult Health Nurse Practitioner and a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner.

Dinner Date: When to Invite Him Over

dinner date

When’s the right time to invite a man over for a dinner date? This man invited himself over after the first date. Too soon?

One of my Facebook group members posted this question about when to invite a man over for a dinner date:

I had what I thought was a very nice first date tonight..lasted 3 hours and we talked easily about all kinds of subjects and laughed quite a bit. He said he’d like to see me again. When I got home he sent a very sweet email about all of the reasons he liked me.

I said I had a nice time too and then he sent me this: “I think you should invite me over for a nice home cooked meal in the not too distant future. Ball’s in your court…”.

Really? After a first date? We had talked about cooking, and he asked if I was a good cook. I said yes, but this seems a bit inappropriate to me after a first date. I responded that I wasn’t ready to invite him over my house yet and I needed to get to know him better and feel more comfortable. Thoughts?
