It’s not easy to meet that special someone, so we set out to obtain some expert advice to help people trying find romance. There’s plenty of advice out there when it comes to dating, and just like every date, every expert has a different viewpoint on things.
The best advice might be to have a plan when you set out to find a love connection. Take all of the advice you seek out into consideration, and choose the tips that hit home with you so that you can approach your mission with a confidence and know what you want.
Here are the latest suggestions from our experts…
Kathryn R Weston, Psy.D. – Dr. Kathryn Online
My advice for dating would be to trust your instincts. Pay attention to "red flags" – don’t sluff them off thinking you can fix the problem or that it’s something you can live with. Alternately, don’t talk yourself out of a great relationship by picking on unimportant things, or things that are likely to change over time – such as some physical appearances.
Jill Crosby – Spiritual Singles
Be present and open! When we are truly present in the moment, we are open to meeting the love of our life because we are paying attention. Enjoy each encounter, whether or not that person is a potential mate. When standing in line at the grocery store, book store, post office… (anywhere!), pass up reading the magazines or thinking about what you are going to make for dinner. Instead, be receptive and conscious of who might be coming into your space. ENJOY the moment you are experiencing NOW! Be bold and say “HI” to people, initiate conversations and SMILE!
Jason Coleman – Your Amazing Marriage
Any two people can share a romantic encounter. However, to create a spark, a true intimate chemistry between two people is a rare thing indeed. It requires one to not only look in their lovers eyes but to gaze deep in their soul and become one in mind, spirit, and body.
Lindsay Isham – No Sex in the City – Dating Advice
The best way to have a true, genuine chemistry, is to be yourself, believe in yourself, and be a little vulnerable. By letting the other person see your heart, passion, excitement for life, these are the things that will help form an initial chemistry and also help maintain a chemistry after 35 years of marriage.
Remember that the real you is better than the fake somebody else, so stop trying to be what you think the other person wants you to be. If something excites you, makes you nervous, sad or upset, talk about it. Respect yourself enough to stick to your set boundaries/goals, etc. By being yourself and showing others that you respect yourself, you will win over hearts a lot faster than having a fake personality.
