Dating in NYC can sometimes seem impossible---if you are looking to get off the dating-merry-go-round and actually find as well as keep a relationship, that is.
A lot of New Yorkers agree on the root cause of the problem: Too many options! Of course, this isn't true in just the big cities. There are more options than ever everywhere, thanks to online dating sites and mobile dating apps.
On one hand, it is great that technology allows singles to connect with people they would not otherwise meet in their daily life; but on the other, some of these mediums can be quite challenging when it comes to finding your true match. Kind of like finding the red gummy bears in the bag, actually. Doesn't everyone want the red gummy bears?
The question is: How do you find the red gummy bears?
First off, you BECOME a red gummy bear. Like attracts like, ya'll! If you want to marry someone extraordinary, you need to be extraordinary. You must appear extraordinary on the dating apps, sites, waiting on line at the pharmacy, etc. The search for "The One" must start with you becoming "The One". Would you date yourself? If not, you have work to do.......
Once you are the red gummy bear-or if you are a brave red-gummy-bear-in-progress-you go out into the world and put yourself in places where you could improve your dating & relationship skills and meet compatible matches.
If you live in or near NYC, you have a wealth of resources! Not to mention the fact that you could be out at events with singles every night of the week......
Three upcoming events worth attending that I am involved with are as follows:
He Said/She Said Dating & Relationship Seminar: I am co-hosting this event, tomorrow,Thursday, July 14th, from 7:15-10PM with dating coach, Mike Goldstein, at Little Town Social in Hoboken, NJ
Summer Lovin Singles Soiree: I am doing mini-matchmaking interviews and considering all attendees for a complimentary matchmaking membership, as well as providing free advice for the broken-hearted at this event sponsored by Cheekd on Tuesday, July 19th, from 6-9PM at Parkside Lounge in NYC.
Elite Man Conference: I am one of the 30+ expert speakers at this self-development conference for men in Plymouth, MA on August 5th &6th. I will be doing a thirty-minute presentation, How To Get Over Breakups & Rejection, using both my professional and personal experience--with a hint of Italian American flavor! I am inviting people to purchase half-price tickets using my code "Russo50".
If you are unable to attend these events, but would like to explore the possibility of working with me on matchmaking or dating coaching from your location, just email me at Rachel@RachelRusso.com with the subject "Options".
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go find some red gummy bears......
