I am in a dating dip! Lately, through Match.com, I have had a lot of first dates, but no promise of a relationship. I am tired of meeting boring, emotionally immature, unemployed, broke, alcoholic men. I seem to be meeting men who I would never consider having a second date with. I’m starting to get depressed. It feels like all the men online are either players or inappropriate matches. Where are all the good men?
I was in a foul mood this morning. For months, I had been hard at work preparing for my first FREE webinar, The Naked Truth D.A.T.I.N.G. Method, a six step formula for finding love after divorce. (Please sign up on the sidebar of my home page for the Monday, April 30th 7 PM – 8 PM ET live webinar.) Anyway, I was running a test webinar for about 19 people last night, and the technology gods were frowning upon me. My slides didn’t work, the whole program froze, and my webinar became a teleclass! I rolled with it. Then my ex called, and I hung up feeling even worse. I am usually a very positive person. I pride myself on my ability to bounce back, to be resilient. But not this morning. I was unable to pull the dark cloud off my head. To top it all off, I had also been having a string of bad luck with dating. There seemed to be no good men online. And then I went on Facebook and saw that I had about 25 ‘other’ messages. I had never seen this category before. I clicked on it, and here’s what I found:
The default setting for dating is failure. You are going to fail in relationships over and over and over until you meet the right one. Sounds like I’m a Debbie Downer? If you have read my blogs and know who I am, you know I’m one of the most positive, upbeat people you’ll meet. And that’s the focus of this blog. How do you stay positive when dates are a flop?
