Hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the short week! Oh me? Well, I had a wonderful time catching up with old friends and making new ones at Club Getaway in The Berkshires.
One topic that was up for discussion whether we were sipping wine at dinner, having s'mores by the campfire, or relaxing in downward facing dog in yoga class: Relationships. Of course everyone always wants to pick my brain when they hear I do matchmaking and dating/relationship coaching. And while the attention is sometimes overwhelming, I mostly enjoy it--even while wearing wings at a Heaven & Hell Party!
After all, it is fun to learn of all the quirky and common things people do from their first dates to their walk down the aisle. I like giving advice and just observing the way men and women interact when dealing with matters of the heart. One type of story I particularly enjoy is the story that has a dramatic turning point. Like when people say "I knew it was so over when__________".
Sometimes its the braid in his hair. The way she mispronounced that easily-mispronounced-word for the hundredth time. The memories that no longer make you smile.
The littlest things can mark the end of the end. You never know exactly what will make you realize that your angel is really a devil in disguise. Or that the one you are with isn't "The One," afterall.
Sometimes, people think they know but have no idea. Lucky for them, there are experts like me to tell them why the red flags are red flags. If you'd like to check out some of my advice on this topic that was recently published in Men's Fitness, you can read the article, "How I Knew He/She Wasn't The One".

And, in the meantime, cheers to finding "The One"!
