Smile! Your Profile Photo Really Matters.

I never cease to be amazed at some of the photos people post as their profile shots on dating sites. Out of focus, flash flare, dark and that's just the good ones!

It really is worth spending a bit of time on taking a few shots, and deciding then which you want to show to the public.

Remember, it's not always love at first sight, but if you look unhappy and miserable in your photo, you'll probably get passed by. Dating sites are now so popular that you do need to stand out, so make sure your photo is good one.

And smile!

Happy New Year?

So now we are well into 2014, is it going to be a good year?

If you've decided that 2014 is going to be the year that you find a new partner, just what have you done about it? Unless you actually do something about it, nothing is going to change. You have to get out there, meet new people, sign up to dating sites and generally put yourself out a bit! You won't meet new people by sitting at home feeling sorry for yourself, will you, so get active!

One of my favourite sayings is I think credited to Henry Ford, and it goes along the lines " Change nothing and nothing will change". Think about it!

Change nothing and nothing changes

Well, another Bonfire Night comes around, and still on your own?

Perhaps it's time to give your love life a rocket, and put a bang back into your life!

I read an interesting article about taking a risk recently.

"Most of us like to feel reasonably safe. But if we shut down our lives to doing only "safe" things, we cut off our potential for growth and accomplishment.

Plus we drain our lives of all excitement. No excitement in our lives makes for the biggest stress of all - boredom. When facing any risk in life, weigh it on a balance scale. What do you stand to gain if you succeed and what do you stand to lose if you fail?"

This is just so true! It is so easy to slip into doing the safe, easy option, and not step out of your comfort zone. But by doing this, you miss out on so much. 

So my challenge to you is this -

Everyday, if you get a chance to do something you wouldn't normally do, go somewhere you wouldn't normally go, or meet people you wouldn't normally speak to, just DO IT! See what new opportunities and adventures it brings! And believe me, you'll feel so much better for doing it! It's called living life!

Don't Be Left At Home!

So you've recently split up with your husband or wife. Sometimes it can feel like the world has ended. But believe me it hasn't.

You only have to look at one of the online dating sites, to see that there are thousands of other people in exactly the same situation as you. So as a single parent, take a look at Dating for Single Parents UK, and you'll see that you're not alone!

Sometimes it takes a while to get over a breakup, but don't feel too sorry for yourself, and let life pass you by. It's your life, so live it! Get out and meet some new people - it's amazing how good it will make you feel. Not all dates will be fantastic, but that's life. Never be afraid to experience it!

Be assured, there is someone right just waiting for you out there.

To Call or Not to Call?

To Call or Not to Call
So that first date is over it was great you want to see her again – now what?  When can you call, is there a right or wrong time to do so?  Should it be right away or should you wait a couple of days?  It truly doesn’t matter.
If you want to call immediately, she might think that it’s endearing, on the other hand she might think you are a psycho.  The fact of the matter is, do what you would normally do.  If you don’t always do what you would anyway, then you aren’t really being yourself are you?
The worst thing that you can do for your relationship life is to hide who you are because it is a deception.  Always be honest so that you can reveal exactly who you are and what you are all about.
If you don’t want to smile, don’t smile.  If you want to wear sweatpants to your first date… well that’s probably not really classy, but maybe you aren’t classy.  Maybe she likes sweatpants right
So if you want to call then go ahead.  If you would usually wait a few days or if you get busy and don’t think about calling, then that’s fine too.  Don’t change anything about you unless you want to.
Don’t try to act a certain way because you think another person wants you to do that.  If it isn’t how you would normally behave then don’t do it.  Be yourself with everything that you do.  That includes dating.  Now, this might mean that it could be a lot more difficult for you to find a mate, but when you do, she will be the exact girl for you.

5 Dating Tips For Moms

Being a mom is the hardest and most time consuming job in the world. From changing diapers to feeding your kids , cleaning –and for some moms juggling a full-time job – it’s easy for moms to get overwhelmed and exhausted. It’s also easy for them to forget about their own needs – especially when it comes to their dating life!
 I’m here share my dating expertise with all of the single moms out there! I hope these tips will help you  find the man of your dreams! (Or just someone cool to hangout with)
 Tip 1Join an Online Dating Site: This shouldn’t be the ONLY way you meet men, but your schedule is tight these days, and sites like Dating for Single Parents are packed with nothing but single men! I’ll share more tips on how to get noticed on these sites in a future post, but for now I suggest you sign up, upload a bunch of gorgeous photos of yourself, and fill out your profile.
 Tip 2: Practice Flirting: Many people don’t think about this, but flirting is an actual skill. The more you practice flirting, the better you get. If you’ve been out of practice for a bit and can’t leave the house much – just start flirting! Flirt with anyone. Flirt with the pizza delivery guy, the postal worker that drops off mail in your building, etc. It doesn’t matter who it is—just practice interacting with men and flirting! When the guy you actually like comes along, you wont be nervous and you’ll flirt like a pro!
 Tip 3: Leave the Kid (and Day-Day Domestic Stuff) at the Door: Look, this is YOUR time to loosen up and just have fun. Sure, you will eventually want to share the cute things your kid does with the person you’re dating, but when you first start seeing a guy, just focus on the fun of getting to know someone new and let him romance you! In the early stages of dating, always keep it light, fun and exciting. Once he’s into you, he will want to hear all about it!
 Tip 4Get Your Style On!: After a long day of changing diapers and feedings, it’s easy to forget about your own personal style. But never forget to go shopping and work on your look. You don’t have to be a supermodel, but your look: accessories, clothing, etc is extremely important for getting noticed. So, if you don’t have your own personal style, get one!
 Tip 5Meet and Date Lots of Men: Men are everywhere! You can meet them while running errands, at the dry cleaners, supermarket, etc. I once told a guy a cheesy line at the dry cleaners about his clothes and he asked me out. I said, “those are a lot of whites – you should add some color to your wardrobe” (see, told ya it was cheesy!). But that got the conversation going…So if you’ve been out of the dating scene for a bit, don’t try to settle for the first guy that comes your way – date as many men as possible and find out what you like! Dating is a learning experience…
I hope these tips are helpful! Hit the comments and let me know. And get out into the world! College lectures, classes, gyms, etc. 
Stay True,
