What Type of “Work” Do I Need to Help Me Find Love?

help me find love

“Help me find love”, says my podcast guest. Listen as I help Beth focus on the right type of “work” so she finds her romantic match.

Beth wrote into the podcast: “I’m fifty-four-years-old and have been divorced for five-and-a-half years. I’ve had two long-term relationships and several others that have fizzled out for one reason or another. This last round of online dating, I thought I was very intentional. I found one man who had all the qualities I’m looking for, and we had lots in common, but the attraction was mediocre and did not grow much in the two months of dating. I just ended things with him.  

I want to have chemistry and compatibility. My therapist has helped me see that I need to step away from dating and do more work on myself.  I am willing to do the work, I just don’t know what that work is and when I should try dating again? I want to find the right romantic partner. Please help!”
