So you kissed a few frogs? It happens
Dating 101: You might kiss a few frogs, strike out, or hit the wall.
Best Advice: try, try again
There you are, on the precipice of hitting the “Send” button on the Match.com profile and you panic.
A tsunami of “What-ifs’” floods your brain. What if I meet a creep? What if I meet a flirting philanderer? A dullard or a scoundrel? A wolf? A polygamist? What if nobody likes me? What do I do?
Roses are Red…
All those musings and romantic ideas – “I just want to meet a sweetheart to go to dinner with – to go to movies with…” evaporate and a towering inferno of red hot fear marches into your brain and you quietly panic.
For some women- sweet, notions of meeting an Everyman Tom Hanks are replaced with images of Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford and they seriously think about quitting the game.
Now is the time for all good boys and girls to get in the game. Take baby steps.
Start by reading online dating profiles.
Review online dating profiles for single people your own age, check out their profile pictures – what appeals and what repels? Consider trying a 7-day Free Trial on any one of the Top 10 Dating Sites. You might meet a prince, a princess…you’ll never know until you give it a try. Plan on having fun.
If you tire of one dating site, get bored or daunted- take a break and try another site.
“Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure.” Charles Stanley
