I have been touched by feedback from readers who are single not by choice, but by the death of their partners. This group of people needs support to find love again without apology about appropriate timing. All the studies prove it: Love is good for your health. Sex is good for your health. Laughing is good for your health. So make dating and finding love a priority, no…

You did it! You logged in and stepped up to the dating plate. Congratulations! You are online and navigating through profiles and even started communicating with some potential suitors. That wasn’t so hard, was it? I hope not, because it only gets more interesting when you finally decide it’s time to meet the person you’ve been messaging. Now the tricky part: The fir…

The devastation of a break-up between two people who’ve shared a long, committed relationship is enough to make you never want to get serious with anyone again. It can be a long, sad process to carry out the break-up, followed by recovery time once the split is made. But what about a person you’ve shared maybe two or three weeks or dates with, but aren’t interested in p…

Some people play games when they’re dating. To me, it’s more important to have game than to play them. Having game is about being self-aware and exhibiting self-control. It’s about having low to moderate expectations, being less concerned about the immediate outcome and maybe even acting a bit aloof. There are times I’ve had game in my single life, and times I have a…

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. Here comes all our baggage, hangups, flaws and insecurities. This is the not-so-pretty side of dating, but knowing who you are and what you bring to the table is important. I’ve been doing my own soul searching lately, and have had a few realizations. I often behave badly on a first date with a guy I’m interested in. I proudly…

In my efforts to help people understand the opposite sex, I’ll share an interesting conversation I had with my friend Dave. Dave told me that women have always had an unfair advantage over men in matters of love and relationships. He said that from an early age, women’s magazines like Vogue and Cosmopolitan, with articles on “How to Land a Man” or “5 Tips to Make you a …

I’m inspired by feedback from readers who have bravely stepped back into the dating scene. I’ve also heard comments from those who’d like to…but are too nervous to face all the insecurities that come along with it. It’s not easy to find a match, but it can certainly be fun to try. Allow yourself the space to feel vulnerable, silly, nervous and maybe even disappointed at…

I learn so much about life (and myself) through my experiences with other people. My romantic relationships, especially, have helped shape my opinions, expose me to experiences and give me a chance to gain another perspective. All relationships have value. How can I call my previous marriage a failure when it brought me my beautiful son? I feel blessed to be co-paren…

Whether we like it or not, money plays a role in dating. You can measure someone’s generosity and predict how they will behave in a potential relationship from the very first meeting. Similarly, when I go on a blind date, my own behavior with money has a way of revealing how the date is going – and my own intentions going forward. To wit: If I know immediately that…

I love discussing, analyzing and sharing suggestions with friends to improve their love lives. I have a real passion for bridging the gap between Mars and Venus. One of the most popular and effective ways for meeting new people these days is through online dating sites. I’ve used Match.com and the Tinder app to navigate the local dating scene. I’ve met successful, attra…
