Dating Tips for Women: Going Out or Hiding Out?

dating tips for womenIf you’re looking for love, one of my best dating tips for women is to make plans for the weekend. Do you have plans? Some women pack their weekends full of activities.  Some have loose plans,  others totally play it by ear. and a few do absolutely nothing. None of these choices are right or wrong.  But if you are single and serious about looking for love, what steps will you take to meet men?

Since it’s summer, you may have a beach party or summer BBQ to attend.  Perhaps you want to take a long bike ride, go kayaking, or play golf.  Any of these options could provide a way to meet new prospects. Go for it!

Dating Tips for Women – Stop Hiding Out!

One of my clients this week admitted that she often avoids the whole thing by entertaining herself or hanging out with girlfriends.  These alternatives are fine – but they will not help you find a loving relationship.

The desire to hide out is understandable. It feels easier to just live the life you know then risk getting out there and being rejected. But if you really think about it – the risk of hiding out is far greater than the risk of rejection.  How? Because getting rejected is a quick experience in this moment and then it ‘s over. Hiding out impacts your entire future!

There are many emotional reasons why you prefer to hide out and that is your choice.  But if you truly desire love, then you will have to become active.  Chances are strong the first few times you venture out, it will be because you forced yourself to go.  But a funny thing will happen – you’ll start having fun. You might enjoy meeting new people. You never know who you will meet or who might connect you to “the one.”

That’s my story.  I went out one fateful happy hour to meet my friend Carol.  Unbeknownst to me, she had invited five other women to meet us at the outdoor patio bar.  When I got there and saw the flock of females, I got very angry.  But, I got myself back ion track to relax and go with the flow.

Within 30-minutes of talking with these women, it was easy to see who was fun.  I had never met Maureen before and we hit if off.  I was telling my dating stories and before I knew it Maureen said, “My brother would love you. Can I give him your number?”  One thing led to another and now I’ve been married to Paul, Maureen’s brother for 16 happy years.

If you want to find love, my dating tips for women advise you not to hide out – is just not productive. Once in a while everyone deserves to hide out, but don’t make it a habit.  Prince Charming won’t knock on your door.  You have to leave your home and go to a public place for him to find you. Are you willing to meet him half way? Why not help the guy (and yourself!) and get out there this weekend?

That’s one of my dating tips for single gals over 40 and I sure hope you follow this proven advice – your future love life is hanging in the balance.

If you want to get online, but don’t know where to start or what to say about yourself, here’s how I can help!
