Good morning!  This was written (and not edited by me) by my client Nav, a 57-year-old doctor in Nashville.  This is my favorite monthly column when I hear directly from a client on what their experience was like with online dating and working with me---and how it all turned out. I’ll let Nav tell his story:   1.      What was it like to be single after being married so long? It was a bit disconcerting. Having been married for 28 years and then suddenly be thrown into a reality where you are entering the dating world in a different decade and having ..read more

Image courtesy of Wall Street Journal This morning, I did my normal things---fed Luna, got my coffee fix and read the WSJ online.  An article entitled “How to Be a Conversation Killer When the Chitchat Gets Boring”   grabbed me. Thanks, Elizabeth Bernstein.  (I like her writing and follow her). We need to take a lesson from rats.  (more later on this) All right, since my dating life is pretty much an open book, I thought back on an online date with a doctor.  Bob* and I had lunch on our first (and only) date.  After the first 10 minutes, I wanted to fle ..read more

I hear this from women constantly- “why do men dominate the conversation on the first date”?   And, I’ve heard this for over 25 years.     It’s not recent.  In my old days, running It’s Just Lunch, (a matchmaking service I started in 1991) clients were required to report in after their first date.  Our phones would go crazy around 2pm (generally the end of their lunch date).   Some Common Comments:     He was so cute, but never asked a single question about me.    I feel like I know his entire life story; he knows nothing about mine.  ..read more

Sure, it would be absolutely wonderful if we possessed all these traits---but life is about growth.  Success and failure are what define who we are and who we become. Just as no one is “perfect” (and who wants perfect, anyway?) neither are we perfect.  I know I’m not.  I just read a list the other day of 15 attributes you want in the person you marry---and while I was thinking of my upcoming marriage, I didn’t get close to hitting all 15.  When I thought of Jeff, I thought wow, he has all 15.  But probably if I had asked him if he thought he had all 15, he’d look a ..read more

Let's dive right into the dating world! As a dating coach, I often get asked about what to talk about on a first date.

No, no, no. You can't say that! After all, I want you to meet "the one" and make a great impression. 1. The Past Earlier today, I had a call with a new client at 7:30 am.
