Your Dating Attitude

Welcome to part 7 of Breaking the Dysfunctional Dating Cycle & Find Love. If you are just joining us for this series, I would highly recommend that you read all the articles.  Click here to see the previous articles.  For me, getting to a point where I was ready for a life partner was not just a one-step process. There were many things that I did in order to understand and get through old habits and patterns.  If you are serious about wanting to get into a relationship, then reading the previous posts will be extremely beneficial.

I run spiritual events for a living, and although I LOVE my work and am very blessed to have found my niche in the world, my personal life was lacking. Most of the attendees for our signature event, Celebrate Your Life, are women and after 15 years I realized that this was not how I was going to meet a man.  I am constantly telling all my single male friends that our conferences are a perfect way to meet a conscious, thoughtful, spiritual woman….if that is what they are looking for.

As I shared in my last post, I turned to an internet dating site and was successful.  This is by no means a perfect solution for finding a partner, but it was perfect for me.  I did it with caution and an open mind.  I went on those 20 minute coffee dates open to possibilities and very often disappointed.  I realized after awhile that attitude was everything.

I knew in the bottom of my heart that there was someone out there for me.  Of course the negative thinking would creep in, and I would just choose to change my mind and not allow myself to go down the path of depression and destruction.  It can be extremely disheartening for those of us who have dated and dated and not found someone; however, keeping a good attitude is key.

True, thought content affects our feelings, and whatever we felt at that moment make us behave and act according to our thoughts and feelings.. its just a cycle.. so we must be on the alert for negative thoughts and replace it ASAP with positve thoughts..

Elsie O., what a great way to set your recipe for a good man! I sorta did that, imagining all the good things I'd like in a mate, and wouldn't you know it, my daughter got him in her own version and age group. I now have a totally wonderful son in law.
