“You can’t be in a loving relationship with another person until you first love yourself.” This is advice single people often hear, a message that gets cranked up several notches each Valentine’s Day.

Your friends and family have ideas about why you’re single—they think you’re too picky, or too needy or too set in your ways. And so, you dutifully work on these things. You date beyond your type. You cultivate a full life with fun, interesting friends. You push yourself to try rock-climbing or public speaking or […]

Fishing with the Right Bait!

I wrote a post for eHarmony back in August 2013 called How Dating’s Like Fishing: Hook, Line and Sinker. That post focused on the fact that if you always fish in the same pond, you are always going to be catching the same fish. It was about switching up your dating routine and finding new ways […]
