No one lists “dating” as a hobby. Dinners with boring strangers and uncomfortable forced hugs are not anyone’s idea of a good time. I’m not the first one to say it, but dating sucks when it’s not going well. And dates don’t go well most of the time. It’s understandable that a lot of single gals have trouble staying motivated when it comes to dating. It’s not easy to constantly put yourself out there time and time again to have the date end in a prayer, and then he loses your number. But stay motivated if you want to find Prince Charming.

1. “Your brunette friend is beautiful.”
Hitting on my friend is an interesting approach. Does that work? Is that a thing?
2. “My aunt has horses.”
3. “I’m luring girls to my apartment with candy; which do you prefer, Skittles or M&M’s?”
Because I’ve always wanted to be on Dateline.
Lady, don’t even answer that question. The answer is yes. Even the most confident single girl can get a raging case of the “why mes?” when she’s constantly surrounded by married and coupled-off friends. It’s tough getting the question, “Anyone special in your life?” and answering with a big, fat “No!” Plus, the self-effacing humor we all use — and single girls, I’ve been you before, I know what happens — can totally get to us. So here are some confidence boosting tips to keep you feeling as fabulous as I know you are.
The meet-cute. That moment when a man and a woman meet completely out of the blue and realize there could be something special between them. You’ve seen it in movies. You’ve heard about it from friends. It even happens to those nutballs on Bachelor Pad. But it’s never happened to you. Why not? My guess is that you’re not ready for it. I’m a strong believer that life only gives you what you can handle, and if you’re not ready for romance, then it’s not going to happen for you. Ladies, trust fate — love comes when you’re ready for it. Here’s how to prep for fate so you can be ready when your meet-cute moment happens.
Happy heat-wave, boys and girls! We all love a good scorching now and then, and as long as summer is still here, it’s all good. Sadly, precious summer is on her way out, and fall is peeking around the corner. Campuses are re-opening, back-to-school commercials are running and stores already have Halloween and Thanksgiving merchandise out! (On the bright side, The Millionaire Matchmaker returns soon, so it’s not so bad, right? Shameless plug!) Here’s how to keep that summer glow alive just a little bit longer.
Even as a traditional matchmaker, I couldn’t be a bigger fan of online dating. It’s how I met David and how so many other amazing couples meet every day. Just because online dating works for a lot of people, though, that doesn’t mean that it’s easy. Finding love online takes some work. If you’re wondering why you haven’t been meeting the right guys online, it might be time to put a little elbow grease into your dating profile. Here’s how you can snazz up your profile page.
