How to Love You As Being Perfectly Single

Arizona Matchmaker How to Love You As Being Perfectly Single

 

As a Phoenix Dating Coach, it might seem odd for me to write about how to love you as being perfectly single. But here’s what I’ve learned in my experience as the Scottsdale Matchmaker: you can’t be happy in a relationship until you’re happy with you. I talk to many singles whose only desire is to find a relationship. While there’s nothing wrong with this, many of these singles are wasting away what could be one of the most fun, enjoyable, and fulfilling seasons of their life. Learning how to love you as being perfectly single starts by saying “yes” to this part of the journey in a few different ways…

Say “yes” to things you wouldn’t normally do.
When you’re single, you have the unique privilege of being allowed to be selfish. You aren’t accountable to a significant other. You don’t have kids to look out for. You get to do whatever you want without worrying about what your partner’s friends or family will think. You only have you to focus on. To tell you the truth, this is an amazing time of life to learn, experiment, and expand your horizons beyond your normal comfort zones. Stay out all night, go skinny-dipping in the park, decide on a whim to fly across the country for a long weekend. You may not always have the freedom to do these things; enjoy it while you can! Learning how to love you as being perfectly single frees you from responsibilities and obligations so you can freely explore and develop who you are as a person.

Say “yes” to dating out of type.
Jolt yourself out of the rut of dating only with the long-term in mind. Here’s the thing: there are plenty of amazing people out there you could get along well with, have fun with, and make awesome memories with – that you would never even consider marrying. Being happily single frees you up to date for fun. Now is the time to date the “bad boy” or the “crazy girl.” Give relationships with people you wouldn’t normally go out with a try. Doing so will teach you about the richness of life and humanity. People are diverse, and dating a diverse range of people will increase your tolerance and exposure to new ways of thinking and living. The best part about dating out of type? You’ll eventually stop categorizing people as “relationship material” or “non-relationship material.” You’ll start appreciating people for the sake of who they are rather than their potential as a spouse.

Say “yes” to traveling alone.
So many people have dreams of traveling the world. My advice? Go do it! Don’t wait until you find your “perfect man/woman” to get out and have adventures. Traveling alone, you’ll have to interact with other people and the travel community is a friendly bunch to be around. In strange places with people you’ll probably never see again, let your hair down, so to speak, and see what adventures you encounter. The greatest gift traveling alone gives anyone is a huge boost in CONFIDENCE. You will come home infused with a new sense of boldness and assurance of who you are, something that will make you unbelievably attractive. Changing the scenery and getting outside your comfort zone will give you amazing opportunities to discover how to love you as being perfectly single and explore the boundaries of your identity.

Say “yes” to defining yourself as happy and single, not single and looking.
The 2010 U.S. Census found nearly half of American adults – 100 million – are single, the highest rate in recent history. 61% of those single adults have never been married, and a 2006 survey of singles by the Pew Internet and American Life Project discovered that 55% of never-married singles had zero interest in seeking a romantic partner. These are people who truly fell in love with the single way of life, who say: “Single is who I really am, it really suits me. I’m not against coupling, I choose to be single because it’s the kind of life that’s most meaningful and productive for me.”

Unfortunately, many people searching for happiness think a relationship will fill that void and make them whole. I’m here to tell you it won’t. Happiness is a state dependent on your inner decisions, not your external circumstances. Choose to relish your current status! Even if you do still dream of getting married, learning how to love you as being perfectly single will ultimately make you a better life partner later on. Besides, you might just discover how much you truly enjoy being single and not want to give it up! The best way you can explore how to love you as being perfectly single is by embracing and whole-heartedly saying “YES” to this amazing time of life.

Ladies, to meet other fabulous single women, say yes and attend the Arizona Matchmaker’s Single Divas Event.

Seven Things Men Are Looking For In Women

Things Men Are Looking for in Women

Are you looking to find your one true love, but can’t seem to make it past the first date or get out of the friend zone? It’s frustrating trying to figure out what men want in a relationship, and the clues can seem conflicting. It’s enough to make a girl feel like she has to be perfect! The good news for you is the top things men look for in women will surprise you… in a good way. The mystery of what men are looking for in women is answered in these 7 traits.

Seven Things Men Are Looking For In Women

  • Attractiveness. Looks will always be at the top of the list for men; it’s simply how their brains are wired. But being an attractive woman has less to do with perfect features than you’d think and more to do with your attitude. How you carry yourself has huge impact on your sex appeal. Know your body, dress in the way that accentuates your best features, and let your personality shine through. As a Matchmaker and Dating Coach, I have found men have very different ideas of what is attractive. Do not try to look like anyone other than the very best you. You will attract the man who is looking for someone just like you.
  • Independence. An independent lifestyle communicates you don’t need a man in order to have a fulfilled life, which in turn eliminates the mental picture of a relationship with you being a ball and chain, which is what men fear most in a relationship. Men are attracted to women who are ambitious and successful, living life fully and passionately. While you want to show that you want and appreciate a man, you want to be able to take care of yourself. So build your career, invest in your social circles, and take up a few hobbies. Bonus: this independence means he gets to enjoy poker night with the guys guilt-free!
  • Confidence. We’ve talked about the importance of confidence before, and you can find out why men like confident women here. Confidence in your sexuality is important to men. You don’t have to have an air-brush perfect body or closet full of lingerie to be sexy. Self-assurance and an ability to communicate your desires and respond to his are the traits that will make you irresistible.
  • Emotional maturity. Nobody likes a drama-queen. A male friend told me about a beautiful young woman he was dating. After another explosion at a restaurant towards a wait staff who did not serve her food exactly as she ordered, he told her that he was embarrassed by her behavior. She explained why she was justified in yelling at the waiter and if he didn’t like it, he could leave. And he did and never contacted her again. One of the top requirements that men always tell me that they are looking for is – drama free. Men don’t want a girlfriend they have to walk on eggshells around. Instead, they’re looking for a woman who knows how to navigate life and relationships with emotional intelligence and stability.
  • Playfulness. Most men are still little boys at heart who love to let loose and have a good time. The ability to joke around, be spontaneous, and even a little irresponsible with their partner for the sake of a good time is a dream come true. Loosen up on your date and show your playfulness. Men desire women who are able to live in the moment, who aren’t constantly worried about the future. As a Matchmaker,  I introduce my male clients to beautiful  women. Several who are intelligent with great values do not get another date as the men say they are too serious. There is no joking, kidding or laughing. They may be a great match in many ways, but not having fun is a deal breaker for most men.
  • Respectfulness. Respect is important to men. You communicate your respect by building him up with your words, speaking highly of him to your friends, and not exposing him when he does make mistakes. When you do disagree with him, you do it respectfully in a way that doesn’t cut him down or belittle him.
  • Support. We all need to know we have a safe place where we can let down our guard at the end of the day. Even the strongest man wants to know you’ll be there for him when he needs you. But there’s a fine balance: support doesn’t mean suffocating or babying (you don’t want to be like mom!). It does mean simply being there when your man needs it.

How to Date a Millionaire Man

how to date millionairesYou Want to Know How to Date a Millionaire Man?

There is an art to successfully dating a millionaire man. You have to know where to meet a millionaire and how to get him interested in dating you. Once you’re in a relationship with a millionaire man, there are some things you can do to build a relationship that ultimately leads to marriage. Wealthy men lead a specific kind of lifestyle, and it’s important you integrate yourself seamlessly into that lifestyle. To do so, your job is learning how to look the part, act the part, and be the part. As a Scottsdale Matchmaker I deal with successful men looking for their life partners. But as a Phoenix Dating Coach, I know these dating pointers can help you date all men – not just the wealthy men! Let’s start with a few basic rules on how to date a millionaire man.

Look the Part

We’d all like to be loved simply for who we are, and that remains the end goal of your relationship. But to get things off the ground, you’ve got to look the part. Men in general are very visual, and wealthy men often have even higher standards for beauty than average men. A millionaire man has the prerogative to be very choosy about the kind of woman he dates. To pass the test, here are a few simple rules:

  • Live a fit, active, and healthy lifestyle.
  • Choose clothes that are elegant, classy, and understated, not too flashy. Your ultimate goal is to be his wife, not a mistress.
  • Follow the rule of thumb to accentuate one feature at a time, not all of them at once. For example, if your eye makeup is dramatic, don’t wear bright red lipstick.
  • When it comes to designer accessories, it’s better to invest in one genuine piece than to own multiple counterfeits – even if they’re “good” fakes.

How to Date a Millionaire Man

Act the Part

In addition to looking the part, it’s important for you to know how to act the part. This isn’t about putting up a fake front, but about learning the cultural behaviors acceptable among the wealthy. We’ve looked at specific ways you can make a millionaire man interested in other articles [link to How to Make a Millionaire Interested article], but here are some basic you can start with:

  • Brush up on your manners. If you aren’t familiar with proper etiquette, there are plenty of books you can rent and articles you can look up.
  • Know what not to talk about – including past relationships, personal woes, and money.
  • Know what you should talk about. Be knowledgeable about the things that matter in his life such as business, sports and hobbies he’s devoted to, and politics. Take note, though, to save these meatier topics of conversation for later in your relationship, not the first date!

Be the Part

With all this talk about practical, appearance-based things you can do to learn how to date a millionaire man, it can be easy to lose sight of what’s ultimately most important: who you are as a person. Just because a man is rich doesn’t mean he won’t care about your personality. It’s basic, but at the end of the day, who you are is what will spark the chemistry that leads to a life-long love relationship. Here are some traits you can work on cultivating:

  • Be kind. There isn’t a man alive who enjoys dating a diva.
  • Be classy. No matter how wealthy you are there is never an excuse to be rude.
  • Be caring. Listen to him and be interested in his life.
  • Be approachable. Let him see that gorgeous smile of yours!
  • Be positive. There’s enough negativity in the world – bring laughter, fun, and light-heartedness to the relationship.

I had a millionaire client who met a woman working in an upscale store. She was unhappy in her career and constantly complained to him. After a few months of her complaining, he realized he did not want this negative person in his life and ended their relationship. We often have unpleasant circumstances in our lives. Continually complaining does not bring the other person closer but drives him away.
Learning how to do these three things will give you a solid start in your relationship dating a millionaire man. Once you’ve laid that foundation, you’ll be set up for success to get down to the business of getting to know each other and the journey of discovering your soul mate.

Why Men Like Confident Women

why men like confident womenWhy Men Like Confident Women

Sometimes it’s hard to put a finger on what it is about a person that makes them so attractive. Often, it’s a combination of traits working together to create that “magic spark.” It’s been popularized that men are drawn to the “damsel in distress,” the woman who needs a man to rescue her, but for emotionally healthy men – that doesn’t work. The truth is that one of the most attractive traits a woman can have is confidence. This blog will discuss the reasons why men like confident women.

As the Phoenix Matchmaker, I talk to men every day about who they are looking for, what attracts them and what makes a man want to commit to a long term relationship. After each match, I talk to my matchmaking male clients to find out what they feel the date. And I have found that men are attracted to confident women. That’s right – men like and prefer to date confident women. Here are 5 reasons why men like confident women:

Confident women are living life to the fullest. Unafraid of living life big, these women embrace live fully and freely while pursuing their dreams. With clearly defined goals in life, these women know what they want and are actively pursuing making those goals a reality. Instead of waiting around for their dreams to magically come true, confident women are disciplined enough to focus on their goal, dedicated enough to develop a plan to achieve that goal, and aren’t afraid of putting in long hours and tireless work to make it happen.

Confident women are secure. They know exactly who they are, and exactly who they are not. In other words, they’ve learned to be comfortable in their own skin. They own their weaknesses and are willing to work on them, but also acknowledge their strengths and are proud of them. Security like that allows women to be confident not only in who they are, but in their relationships. They don’t play the jealousy game, wasting time and energy over imagined competition. These women are also not bottomless pits of neediness constantly looking for reassurance they are loved.

Confident women are assertive. Because they know who they are and what they think, confident women aren’t afraid to share their opinion. I had a client who was dating a Beautiful woman with a great personality. But she agreed with everything he said. He quickly lost interest although he said she was one of the most beautiful women he had dated. My client wanted interesting conversations where different view points were discussed. By agreeing with every view my client expressed, this lovely woman lost the man she was truly interested in. So remember – confident women steadfastly stand by what they believe, and won’t back down. Instead of leaving their men trying to guess what they want, confident women articulate their wants and needs in the relationship. Taking this approach allows men to relax and be in the moment, knowing a confident woman will respectfully tell him her preferences. Take note, though: this doesn’t mean bossy or overly opinionated.

Confident women are living a full life. Instead of waiting around for their “Prince Charming” to come along so their life can really begin, confident women live a full life. With a busy social calendar and a variety of interests and hobbies, these women won’t be caught clinging to their man, begging for his attention 24/7. Confident women are out doing things, seeing people, and enjoying the life they’ve built for themselves.

Confident women are attractive. What is that special “something” that makes a woman irresistible? It comes down to her attitude. If she believes in herself, she can turn any situation into an opportunity to shine. But if she doubts herself, she’ll be lackluster in even the best of circumstances. Confidence is contagious; a self-assured woman will make those around her feel more confident about themselves, too.

As much as men like to be the hero and want to be needed, getting stuck in a relationship with someone who constantly needs rescuing is draining. It might seem counter intuitive, but the less a woman “needs” a man the more he wants her. Confidence in both partners sets the stage for a successful, balanced, and fulfilling relationship. It’s a trait well worth cultivating!

Warning Signs You’re Dating a Narcissist

Warning Signs Dating NarcissistDo You Know the Warning Signs You’re Dating a Narcissist?

As a Phoenix Matchmaker and Dating Coach, I’ve interviewed hundreds of women and found many who have become addicted to dating narcissists. Narcissistic men will do anything to sweep a woman off her feet, and women get addicted to that rush. The nice guy who’s trying to really get to know them – he’s seen as too boring and bland. Years go by while these women waste valuable time with one narcissistic man after another while passing up men who would be great husbands. Learn the Warning Signs You’re Dating a Narcissist – before you waste more time.

The best way to avoid the addiction is to avoid dating narcissistic men altogether. Here are 8 warning signs the man you think is so wonderful might actually be a narcissist:

He’s amazing. Too amazing…
Relationships with narcissists always start out really great. You’ll feel like you found the man of your dreams, and you’ll feel like he worships the ground you walk on. But somewhere in the back of your mind, you might think he’s just too good to be true. And he is, but he’s doing such a good job sweeping you off your feet, you shush that little voice once and for all.

His mood swings are polar opposites.
After the initial phase of the relationship when everything is wonderful, you’ll start getting very mixed signals from him. One moment everything’s great, the next moment it’s as if you don’t even exist to him.

He never really commits to anything, and gets mad when you “pressure” him.
Freedom and control are of high importance to a narcissist, and commitment is seen as a threat to both of those things. Talking about commitment often causes a narcissist to react very strongly. His response will likely include “punishing” you for “offending” him, using his favorite narcissistic tactic: the silent treatment, emotional or verbal abuse, the guilt trip, or complete withdrawal from the relationship.

He’s never there when you need him.
Narcissists are the center of their own universe. They lack the ability to feel true empathy for anyone else, and aren’t able to handle your emotional world. A narcissist will shut down and run the other direction when you need a shoulder, but will unrelentingly expect you to be there for them.

He gets defensive at the littlest things.
To a narcissist, even the slightest hint of criticism – even constructive criticism – is seen as a full-blown assault, and they respond accordingly. You may have noticed it earlier and thought he was sensitive. In a relationship you’ve found, expressing your needs in the relationship will also elicit this reaction. This defensiveness is aggressive, and may look like denial, abuse, and rage.

He doesn’t connect his words with actions.
Keeping up appearances is of utmost importance to a narcissist, and they will say anything to convince you they aren’t really as bad as you think. Their words will sound and feel amazing, but when the rubber meets the road there will never be any follow through. Compliments amount to flattery designed to manipulate you. Promises are empty words used to appease you.

He’s overly concerned with appearances – both his and yours.
Narcissists are obsessed with status. They like flashy cars, buying expensive status items even if the rest of their financial lives is in chaos.  Everything the do in life – including dating you – has been planned and plotted to give them a “leg up” in life. They may make subtle remarks about your appearance that leave you trying harder to be “perfect.” He will also have a tendency to be very meticulous with his own appearance, and will always be looking for someone to pay him a compliment.

The problem is never his fault.
You thought when you met him, that many people had mis-used him in relationships. He discusses work associates, past relationships, family and friends have taken advantage of him. In your relationship, any time you have a problem, he will always peg it on you. He eloquently describes how your faults have caused the problem, and he will probably spend time punishing you for it. He also spends quite a bit of time thinking and talking about how he’s better than other people, speaking of them in a haughty, condescending manner.
Dating a narcissist is a one-sided relationship that will never end happily-ever-after. It’s easy to get sucked in and be committed (or addicted) to the relationship cycle. Look for my future blog (Phases of a Narcissistic Relationship] before you realize what you’ve gotten into. Recognize the warning signs that he’s a narcissist so you can get out before it’s too late.

Is He Not Interested in a Relationship with You?

Is he interested in a relationshipHow Can You Know Is He Not Interested in a Relationship with You?

I’ve talked to dozens of women who haven’t read the signs in their relationship. They ask me how to tell if ” Is He Not Interested in a Relationship with You? ”  They come to me for dating advice after wasting months in a relationship with a man who is obviously not interested in a relationship with her. Obvious, that is, to everyone except the woman in the relationship.

They spend a lot of time making excuses for disinterested behavior and refuse to read the writing on the wall that they man they’re dating just isn’t interested. If you’re in a relationship that seems to be going nowhere, you should take a step back to evaluate why. “Is He Not Interested in a Relationship with You?”  If the following characteristics describe your relationship, you might be dating a man who isn’t interested in you:

  • Communication is inconsistent at best. If it always takes him more than 24 hours to respond to your calls and texts, this is a red flag you should pay attention to. You can tell yourself he’s busy or has a big project or has bad reception at his house, but if his communication MO is to take a day or two before getting back to you, the likely answer is that he’s not interested in dating you.
  • You do all the planning. A guy who wants to be in a relationship with you will put effort into it. If you’re the only one initiating the time you spend together, it’s time to take a step back and reevaluate.
  • He won’t commit to anything. This commitment-phobia can mean avoiding a concrete answer about getting pizza together on Friday night to long-term life plans. If he can’t make plans more than 24 hours in advance, it’s only fair for you to ask him some serious “why” questions.
  • He only comes around when he wants or needs something from you…especially when that ‘something’ is sex. If he only comes to see you when he wants to get busy in the bedroom, it’s time you call your relationship what it is. When you’re looking for a committed relationship, don’t shortchange yourself by settling for being just “friends with benefits.”
  • He’s always ‘busy’ when it comes to spending time with you. He often chooses to hang out with his buddies or family instead of you, putting you in the lowest spot in the priority totem pole. He might be busy, yes, but when a man is genuinely interested in pursuing a relationship with someone, they will bend over backwards to find a way to make it work.
  • You haven’t met his friends or family, and he doesn’t seem motivated to meet yours. After you’ve been on a few dates, it’s normal to start meeting someone’s friends and eventually their family. Avoiding this relationship milestone is an indicator that he doesn’t want to make you a permanent part of his life.
  • He’s a really big flirt. Some people are just friendly. But some people are really “friendly,” if you know what I mean. If he’s asking questions about your attractive female friends, flirting with the waitress, and telling you he’s OK with you dating other men, you should realize it means he’s keeping his options open and isn’t committed to a relationship with you.

If you’ve seen these warning signs, he probably isn’t interested in you.

Men are generally pretty uncomplicated. Women often try to read more subtext and meaning behind their words and actions than there really is. Remember – It will always be his actions – not his words- that will let you know a man’s true intentions. He’s not trying to be mean, he’s simply doing what he sees is best for himself.

As a smart, pretty, professional woman, you deserve a man who’s interested in pursuing you. Don’t waste your time dating him; take my dating advice and move on, and invest your energies looking for a man who will give you a fulfilling and satisfying relationship.

What Does Your Prince Charming Look Like?

how to meet the right manHas He Found You Yet – What Does Your Prince Charming Look Like?

As a little girl, you way have dreamed of getting swept away by Prince Charming. In your mind, you knew exactly what he would look like… tall, handsome and have a head full of hair. It doesn’t help that growing up we were bombarded with images of the perfect prince and what he would/should look like. So as a little girl, if you knew you would marry a shorter, balding man you most likely cry and ask for an immediate rewrite of your fairytale. But through experience, you hopefully learned there is much more than just looks.

As the Phoenix Dating Coach I’ve heard many women talk about going on a date with that “guy” that is perfect in the looks department. But once getting to know him, you realize there just isn’t a connection or he doesn’t have the personal attributes you are looking for in a man. He may be… well as interesting as a …rock. A guy can be wonderful to look at, but if there is no chemistry, then he’s not the right one for you.

Of course, it is important to have some sort of physical attraction. Though once getting to know a man and his true nature, it can easily grow or lessen the physical attraction you feel towards him. A man can easily grow more handsome in your eyes, after you get to know his amazing personality. Or he can grow to look more like a toad, if he is a jerk.

You may have that gorgeous girlfriend who is with someone who you think does not come close to her level of attractiveness. You may think she deserves a Brad Pitt, while she chooses to date a Lyle Lovett. But beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, and the man she is dating may bring her more happiness and laughter than any Brad Pitt look-a-like could. I had a client who has a devoted boyfriend who some may view as unattractive, while she’s quite hot stuff. So why is she with him? He treats her like a princess; plans unique and fun vacations, he makes her laugh, they have a fantastic time when they’re together, she feels appreciated by him and he makes her laugh. Don’t you want a relationship like that?

What Does Your Prince Charming Look Like?

That is why next time you get hit on by a man, who does not fit your typical attractiveness standards, try giving him a chance. There may turn out to be no chemistry at all, or it could be a true match made in heaven.

Looks do fade over time, but the personality will stay. I am absolutely not saying to settle and make a classified that states “Looking for Unattractive Man”, but what I am saying is to be open to getting to know someone before writing him off. That man that hit on you, may turn out to blow your little girl image of Prince Charming out the window.
