How to keep positive

Dating Coach and Dating Expert

when things aren’t going great


I had a few emails after my last “How to Spot a Loser” blog.   Generally people enjoyed it, but one or two said it came across a big negative.  While I like the fact it got people interacting,  that wasn’t my intention.  So today I’ve decided to write today’s blog on the subject of positivity.

Sometimes it can be easy to get frustrated when it come to dates.  If you aren’t meeting the right people then you might start to wonder if something is wrong with you and if you will ever meet someone.

So here’s some good news:


1) If you are proactive and positive you WILL find someone.   You just need to turn off that annoying voice in your head that makes you think negative thoughts like “I will never meet anyone”.  Replace it with a louder, stronger voice telling you positive, encouraging statements like “I will meet someone very soon” and “They will be lucky to have me.”


2) Enjoy the process.  Think of each date as a wonderful new adventure you are about to have.  Try and think out of the box and use the opportunity to try different activities.


3) Don’t set your expectations too high.  Just set out with the intention to have fun and make new friends.  Anything beyond that will be a bonus.


4) Have a life outside dating.  Don’t let all your thoughts and actions be about your dating life.  Keep yourself fit, healthy and active.


5) Get someone to help you.  You don’ t have to do it on your own, so ask a friend for their advice.  If you would like me to work with you to start getting great results then you can contact me via the website below.



Happy dating!

Celebrity Dating Advice Kristen Stewart

If you get caught cheating

Is it better to apologise privately or publicly?

That’s the dilemma that Kristen Stewart faced this week after she’s been caught cheating on her boy friend Robert Pattinson.   She decided that since the media has turned on her and made her infidelity so public, she had not choice but to do the same with her apology.  But if you were ever in the same situation, what should you do?

An apology is the most important thing after an affair, followed by an explanation. You’ll be judged by everyone that knows you both, so if they are aware of the infidelity then you need to make a very public apology.  If nobody else knows, there’s no need to make matters worse so keep it private as you don’t want others interfering. This is not about you making yourself feel better, but helping put things right.

Your partner will be deeply hurt, angry and confused, but they will want to see you try to make things right.  It can be hard to express this face to face with so much emotion, so write them a letter instead.  Put down everything you want to say, explain your actions and make it clear it will never happen again.  Then give them time to read it and come to terms with what has happened.

Sometimes affairs are good for a relationship, as it gives you both a chance to start again. A “new moon” as it were.  However, you’ll never quite rebuild the trust you had in the first place.
