How to Be a Woman of Value When a Man Stands You Up

What do you do when a man stands you up? He seemed amazing, you made a date, and then he didn’t show up. He apologized the next day. Do you forgive him?

I want to share a “woman of value” story with you. It’s about when a man stands you up and what you can do about it so you don’t feel powerless anymore. It’s about standing in your integrity, even when you feel rejected by a man. It’s about something that just happened to me. I think it’s important to learn lessons from every experience we have in dating. So, here’s my teachable moment about how to be a woman of value, even when a man stands you up!
 
I met a guy a few weeks ago. The first date was amazing. We both didn’t want it to end. He walked me to my car like a gentleman. I liked that. And for the first time in a LONG time, I was interested in a second date. He really liked me, too, and asked me out for the following week. All was good. Or so I thought…

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 Match.com, 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…

Help, I’m Dating a Widower!

dating a widower

Is it a good idea to be dating a widower? Or will he always be comparing you to his late wife? 

Dear Sandy,

I am 62-years-old, and back in 2012 when I briefly joined eHarmony, I met a widower. I did NOT know exactly how to handle him. I learned a great deal and hung in there, but it was quite different. Fast forward to last summer when I joined eHarmony again and voila—I met another widower. I went straight to my minister, who said I would be alright dating a man who has been widowed for approximately a year. (There are some widowers who get on dating sites after three or six months.)
Just last week when I revisited eHarmony, I met another widower who lost his wife 14 months ago after a grueling illness. We briefly interacted, and he seems interested, but says that he is only seeking companionship, not even thinking of marriage. He also said that he wanted to know if I would consider moving (he is four hours away from where I live), because he loves his beautiful home that he and his wife built many years ago. YIKES….
