Over 40 Dating: Love Blooms from Brief Subway Flirting

One of my dating coaching clients sent this fun article about a NYC romance from the NY Times. Quirky as it may be, these two found each other as a result of the brides willingness to flirt with a total stranger. She took a chance, walked up to this man and asked him about what he was reading while on the subway.

Find out what she did when her stop came and she got off when you read the article and how they managed to fall in love.  This is exactly the kind of move I encourage in my workshop “The 100 Day Challenge.” While so many women feel timid about talking to strangers, that is exactly what can get you noticed.

Breaking the ice isn’t about the perfect line. You don’t need the wittiest comment. All that is required is a willingness to take a shot, push past your comfort zone and SAY SOMETHING!

If you wait until you have more confidence, you will never get started. spring is in the air. Get out there and start the ball rolling for a romantic spring filled with “men possiblitiies.”  Start by simply smiling at men with a little eye contact. Then force yuorlsef to say “hi.”

Next push yourself to strike up conversations. You will become more comfortable with just a little practice. Especially when you realize that 99% of men openly welcome your flirtatios approach.

This is not pursit! Oh no! YOu are not asking a man out for a date. This is leveraging your feminine charm and allure for all its worth – which is plenty!

After a brief conversation, don’t linger. If he doesn’t ask for your number, you can offer it if you feel compelled. Otherwise, just accept this as part of your training and let it go as a fun exchange which can build your confidence and strengthen your belief. The right man is out there and YOU WILL FIND HIM.

And best of all, if you continue to cross paths with men, flirt and talk to them,  appear to be a fun  person who is easy to be with, you WILL ATTRACT MORE MEN so HE CAN FIND YOU!

Read the article about this quirky love story. It will demonstrate that no matter how odd or  run-of-the-mill you are, if you want to find love and believe it is possible, take the steps to get out there and flirt – you can find it!
