It’s hard to believe we are in the second half of the year already and that signals the beginning of holiday celebrations, seasonal gatherings and places where, frankly, you’d rather not show up as your best friend and his date’s third wheel or even worse, alone.
Now is the time to let Midwest Matchmaking provide the relationship advice and online dating support that could lead to you enjoying the holiday events with a partner by your side.
Advice. There seems to be no lack of it especially if you are a Des Moines single and haven’t yet found “the one.” As professional relationship coaches, we’ve helped many local singles sort through the mountains of dating advice that comes from well-meaning aunts, best buddies, work friends and online sources. While everyone is trying to help, sometimes this kind of dating advice can actually do more harm than good.
There are plenty of things that qualify as “deal breakers” when you are looking for the right life partner. Believe us when we say that we’ve seen quite a few of these during our combined years of professional matchmaking. Your dates mother still buys all of their clothes (and they include plaid knickers). Your date humiliates or shames you for your physique. Heaven forbid, he or she is still married!
As professional matchmakers, we feel rejection, when truly approached with an open mind, can benefit all parties. The key is all about perspective, and at Midwest Matchmaking, we coach our clients to always look at the positive side of rejection and here’s why;
Rejection firmly closes one door and opens the gates to other opportunities that are more aligned with what is desired.
If you are a local single and new to these parts – what we like to call the center of the universe and the best place in the world to live (the real Midwest states of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri), you should know that your dating experiences are about to undergo a radical change – for the better!
Jumping back into the dating scene as a newly divorced single again can feel like free falling head first over a gorge. Not only have dating styles perhaps changed since you last put yourself out there, but so has the technology, certain etiquette related to that technology, and expectations. Not to mention the overwhelm that dating apps cause, it’s no wonder divorcees feel so lost, and have no clue where or how to start again.
