Back in the day when I was young, silly, and also doing my whole reality dating blogging stint, I wasn't so selective about the types of guys I went on dates with.
After all I had a quota. You don't do ninety-two dates in one year by being too picky!
I'd often find myself sitting across the table from another somewhat unappealing guy thinking: GET ME OUT OF HERE! Uggh. The torture!
Thank God I lived to write about it! And speak about it. And help others who experienced the hellishness of the modern day dating scene that I had become so intimately acquainted with.
Every single dating fail has taught me valuable lessons, further developed my empathy for the suffering of other singles, and has made me appreciate a good guy when I see him!
So as you probably gather, I like to talk about this stuff. And not just from my professional perspective as an experienced matchmaker and dating & relationship coach-or from a clinical lens as the therapist I was trained to be-but in the voice of a single woman who truly gets it.
In other words: Real talk!
In fact, I'll be keeping it real once again as I talk dating, relationships, sex, and love on The Great Love Debate stage at StandUp NY, this Monday night, August 14th at 8PM. If you are in-or can be in- NYC next week, please come and join me, as I sit on the panel of this "wild, feisty, hilarious, interactive forum on love, sex, & relationships in 2017".
Seriously, though, the people who have attended my past two shows loved it!
Note: All tickets must be be purchased in advance here. Full Disclosure: I am not sure if I am going to doing another show. Sometimes in life-and in dating- It is now or never, my friends!
And sometimes, after that #WorstDateEver or after the relationship that hurts your soul, you just have to remind yourself not to let it break you.
'Cause even when you feel broken, life goes on.
