Those fantastic fairy tales we grew up with - Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and, each with their Prince Charming. Fairy tales are great when we're six years old.
As we got older, parts of those fairy tales stuck in our brain and sabotaged what can be possible with an actual human being in front of us.
Phrases like "the one," "meant to be" and "happily ever after."
As if our handsome prince will save us from boredom, loneliness, and mopping the floor.

One thing that frustrates all women when they’re out there dating is when a man doesn’t call after a seemingly great date. Does this sound familiar? You went on an amazing date. You completely clicked. You had a great time. He said he would call and you knew he would because he liked you as much as you liked him. Finally, maybe you get to rest. You exhale because he’s going to call. But, then he doesn’t call and he should’ve called. Suddenly our inner critic starts to talk. S
Think back to the most memorable date you've had. What made him memorable? Chances are he was engaged, present and interested. It’s as if he could walk into the room and make friends with every person there. Everyone wants to have a great first date. What rarely gets said is that meeting people is only really valuable if they remember you for the positive feeling with which you left them. So, how do you become that memorable first date for him? By being real, by embracing oth
If you’re like a lot of independent and successful women, you may have bought into the myth that men are afraid or intimidated by this kind of woman when it comes to pursuing a romantic relationship. The thought of believing that men are intimidated by you is something you’ve actually given yourself permission to believe. Here’s why: because believing it makes it all about the men. It’s their problem and their fault. It takes responsibility away from you. In fact, it’s not a
How many times have you said to yourself, “I’m tired of meeting losers. All the men are taken. The men I meet are boring, bald, messy, sex crazed, too this, not enough that.” There’s always something. , I hear this all the time, “I don’t have a man because all the good ones are taken.” It’s the most common complaint single women who don’t want to be single make. Don’t get me wrong. I agree - not having quality men to date stinks. But, here’s the thing - it only stinks i
What makes a woman approachable? On paper - you’re amazing: educated, accomplished, independent, attractive and have a great job. So, why aren’t men approaching you in Starbucks, the grocery store or the bookstore? It’s because you may be creating an impression that you don't want to be bothered. If this is the case, he will never make his way toward you. The biggest fear a man has with a woman is rejection. Every once in a while there’s a super confident man who will take t
You say you want a committed relationship. You’re tired of being single. There’s nothing wrong with being single. After all, it’s not a disease - it’s just your relationship status and you know this. You have a great life. You’re grateful for the abundance you have in health, family, friends, career and past times. But, you know life would be richer if there was a +1. You tell your girlfriends, your family - maybe even some of your co-workers that you’d like to meet a guy who
There are certain people in life that we all avoid. Think about your nosey neighbor who knows everything happening on your block whether it’s about someone else's marriage, children or who just bought the house next door to you. Or, your new co-worker who doesn’t know the meaning of an ‘inside voice’ when he’s talking on the phone. He’s so loud you can hear his entire conversation and he sits two offices down from you! In dating there are certain types of people that we avoi
Most of us would like to be better at flirting. It seems as though the most expert flirters among us mingle effortlessly with the opposite sex, while most of us blush and stumble over our words. Otherwise, outgoing women have no idea how to flirt with men, nor do they want to. They consider it childish, bordering on classless. I have news for you. Here is what you get when you don’t flirt with nice men: a nice conversation. Yet, the mere sound of the word makes many cringe be
I have always maintained that if you're a smart, successful woman who embraces your singleness and understands that happiness is an inside job, you are a man magnet. You also know that you don’t need a man, but, you’re happy to admit that you want one. We date at the level of our self-esteem. Your relationship is a direct reflection of your own self-love and self-worth. I wondered why does a woman rush into a relationship without having these fundamentals of self in check? Fa
