Do you have some good reasons for why you haven’t gone out much lately?

If you answered yes, my intention here is to inspire you to put yourself out there, meet new people, have fun and enjoy yourself.

Can you relate to any of these excuses below?

“I am too busy.”
The reality is that you will MAKE time for what matters to you. So if your love life is a priority, you’ll make time for dating. And if there is something else behind this excuse, like a fear of opening your heart and potentially getting hurt, I encourage you to explore that on a deeper level.

“I don’t know where to go.”
The truth is that great men go to the same places you go – a gym, bookstore, farmer’s market, coffee shop, Sunday brunch, church, local meet-up group. I remember once when I went on a date with my husband to watch a basketball game at Madison Square Garden. I’d say about 80% of the audience were men. That gives you, as a woman, a great advantage!.

“I don’t have anyone to go out with.”
The best response I can give you is that you ALWAYS have someone to go out with. And that someone is YOU! Imagine treating yourself to a pleasant walk in one of your favorite areas of the city, enjoying a cocktail in a beautiful lounge and then getting a delicious appetizer in a trendy restaurant. When you go out by yourself, imagine that you’re a tourist in your own city. So, talk to “locals,” explore a different neighborhood, and learn new things about yourself and others in the city you live in.

Taking yourself out on a date regularly and actually enjoying this time is a beautiful ritual. When you’re comfortable in your own skin and confident enough to go out alone, you will stand out and make it easier for men to approach you.
