Happy Date Night Y'all!
Whether you are out with someone special or at home on the couch-with or without that special someone- it is my hope that you are enjoying yourself. Life is too short not to fill it with all of your favorite things!
And by "things" I also mean people, experiences, and feelings that your crave...
Speaking of favorites, have you ever noticed how people just love to talk about their favorite things? Sure, it is human nature to crave novelty, but we are also creatures of habit with a penchant for our good ol' faves.
We "favorite" lots of things these days--from tweets, to phone contacts, to songs. When it comes to dating, we do everything from wearing our favorite-i.e. "lucky"-outfits on first dates, to frequenting our favorite date spots-sitting at our favorite table, where we order our favorite foods-throughout our relationship.
Since I think indulging in our favorites is good for the soul, I figured I'd take it upon myself to share sore of my favorites--for love lives.
My Favorite Question To Ask A Love Interest: Want to know my FAVORITE question to ask on a first date and why I love it so much? Well, I just filmed another episode of ThursDATE with Matchmaker, Lisa Clampitt, in which I reveal this question I always ask and suggest people ask.
You can watch this video which also offers more insight on dating and how I help matchmakers recruit singles with my new recruiting course that I have created and am teaching at Matchmaking Institute here.
My Favorite Thing To Do On A Free Weekend: Last week at this time, I was living it up in South Florida. I hopped on a plane for an impromptu holiday weekend with one of my best friends & fave travel buddies! If you are a single girl like me, please know that your love life reaps the benefits when you take such spontaneous getaways, because it raises your vibration! Also, you discover cool and important things. Like Angel Shots. And rubber duckies at pool parties!
Of course, if you are coupled, well, there's nothing like a change of scenery to get those sparks flying.....Who couldn't benefit from being a little spontaneous every now and then?
My Favorite Feeling When Looking At A Phone: Our mobile devices inspire a full range of emotions. And they are not all pleasant. Ask any girl who has waited more than twenty-four hours for his text!
Personally, when this becomes a routine behavior of my favorite guy, I want to punch him in the face! But since I am a loving, non-violent person, I settle for sending him a text with either a fist emoji, middle finger emoji, or "Really?" meme" couples a long, brutally honest message that lets him know he is walking on thin, thin ice.
ANYWAY, to end on on a positive note, this last favorite of mine is plain and simple...Its that feeling you get when HIS or HER name pops up on your phone! The one that leaves you grinning ear to ear.
Its love! My favorite thing that makes the world go round......
We all deserve love. In large doses. (Yes, even the guy who doesn't promptly respond to our texts!)
If its been a long time since you were caught in public smiling at your phone like an idiot, and you are ready to do something about it, I would like to hear from you. Please.
If you are ready to stop settling for less than you deserve, write me an email at Rachel@RachelRusso.com and tell me why you want to transform your love life!
