Look to these snapshots for quick, no nonsense tips that get right to the heart of the matter…a dating instruction roundup, if you will.

Go to interesting places and get involved in activities in your area that don’t involve getting buzzed, toasted, sloshed or baked, and I promise your odds of meeting intriguing, attractive (even in the daylight) people will increase exponentially.
(7/1/2015, The 5 Cliffs of Contemporary Dating)

The LAST thing you should discuss with this intriguing new stranger is your sordid dating history! Dating, in its many forms, shouldn’t be the common denominator between the two of you, just because you’ve met through a dating service.
(9/11/2015, What to NOT Tawk About)

Your mind is your reality. It is the source of your strength and security, but also can be a petri dish of anxiety and self doubt. Allow yourself to fall into obsessive thought patterns and you will have a difficult time maintaining healthy relationships. When in doubt, take a breath – or five – and wait. You may be surprised to discover that your worst case scenario almost never comes to pass.
(7/26/2015, The Great Killer of Relationships)

On date planning:
The bad news (read: reality): there is no such thing as a perfect spot. The good news: you can make it perfect by interacting with the environment and your new acquaintance with equally positive intent. 
(6/21/2015, The Origin Story, NYC)

On dating after divorce or an ended relationship:
Your heart isn’t dead, it’s just still in the ICU, so don’t push yourself until you’re legitimately feelin’ it.
(8/7/2015, To Date or To Wait)

If, in trying to impress a lovely new person, you find yourself getting a reaction you didn’t expect, just back up, perhaps apologize, but don’t make excuses. There is nothing sexy about excuses, especially an excuse that makes you look manic and confusing.
(6/16/2015, But I’m a Zodiac Sign!)

See you next month on Volume II’s dating instruction roundup!

Love wisely,

5 Ways to Win An Argument In A Relationship

It’s happened– your Springtime in Paris new relationship has hit a significant bump in the road. You’re feeling the urge to say something 180 degrees from “you’re just so perfect and amazing” to your new love interest. Congratulations– this is your first opportunity for a growth power-up!

Quell the impulse to text “We need to talk.” If you’ve already typed it in, with your thumb hovering above “send,” aim for “delete” instead. No one wants to read that; no one wants to be forewarned of impending doom unless they’re watching a movie. You’ll only succeed in spurring the imminent arsenal of defense…

GIVE ME EVERYTHING YOU AM: “Love Again” by Run The Jewels

The other week, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who is a new father – we’ll call him Cronus – and we were talking about parental instinct. He lowered his voice conspiratorially, considered the infant in his lap and said, “Sometimes I love my baby so much that I want to eat him. Is that normal?” 

Turns out, it’s not just normal–it’s science! Olfactory chemical signals–the smells of newborn babies have been linked to dopamine spikes in the brains of new mothers, essentially triggering the same neurological reward circuit activated when a very hungry person eats, or when a heroin addict shoots up…

5 Ways to Avoid the Cliff of Contemporary Dating

I have a friend who dates online… a lot. You could say she’s popular. She gets out again and again because she’s fabulous–which is obvious, even through a screen. Yet she arrives each time preloaded with every personal detail about her date–their hometown, full legal name, and family history–often even their annual income and whether or not they rent or own. IT IS RIDICULOUS. The internet is a fantastic tool for writing a thesis, but should it be used to compose a 15-page, pre-introduction memoir on a potential romantic interest’s life story?…
