I’m often asked (and I often have to ask) where are all the men? Where do we single ladies go to meet them? I’ve heard the same ol’, same ol’ advice: bars, sporting events, grocery store, gym, join a co-ed sports league…yadda yadda yadda. But it seems like in a city full of singles it would (and should!) be easier.
And then it hit me the other day: ladies, the men are EVERYWHERE! Literally everywhere. And I got to thinking about how I was complaining about meeting men, how I never felt I was meeting any and then thinking about how I was thinking about meeting men. Once I opened my eyes to the reality that men (ahem, available men) are everywhere, they started showing up and I was letting them show up. You see, it’s all about perception.
Turns out I was getting in my own way in meeting them. I was the problem. I was cynical, slightly apprehensive and pessimistic about the entire experience so I was never meeting anyone. Once I flipped that mindset I was able to break through my own prejudices and see the endless dating possibilities available.
*Warning: by flipping your mindset and getting out of your own way, dating will get a lot more fun, dates will be knocking down your door and life as you know it will not be the same
