dating tips for introverts

In this video, you’ll learn 5 dating tips for introverts to help make dating more enjoyable and less draining.

Introverts often take more time than extroverts to form meaningful relationships. And they don’t feel as comfortable in social settings where most people go for dates.

That’s why online dating can be a great fit for introverts. Rather than shouting over loud music at a social gathering or bar – an introvert’s nightmare – they can browse potential matches from the comfort of their home. And they can take their time when writing messages to the people they connect with online. Perfect for those of us who like to think and process before we speak or write.

But that doesn’t necessarily make online dating fun or easy. In this video, I share 5 dating tips for introverts to make online dating more enjoyable and less draining.

date a separated man

Is it ever wise to date a separated man? Like most things, the answer is not simply ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Watch this video to hear my thoughts.

Most women feel they should NOT date a separated man because:

a. He may not be over his ex yet, and they might reconcile.

b. He may not be emotionally ready for a relationship yet.

I feel this is a much more nuanced issue. There are MANY reasons why a man could still not be divorced. Plus, I don’t believe in hard and fast rules. Instead, I teach principles or guidelines to follow if you want to go on your last first date. Watch this video to learn more…
