Question from Meghan G from Babylon, NY: “It’s hard being single during the holidays, what are some tips to help me get through being single? Or how can I find someone during this time?”

This is a great question, Meghan. With all the hustle and bustle and last minute shopping during this time of year, it’s easy to forget the true meaning of the holidays. Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, I think we can agree that this is a time for giving, gratitude, and love. Granted, this can be tough when you’re single and see couples holding hands(some people still do that) walking along the bright and colorfully lit city streets.

Do your best to be grateful for what you have, especially if you are in good health. Then focus on your friends and loved ones. I believe that when we maintain a selfless mindset, good things come our way. Of course, there are no guarantees that you’ll wake up on Christmas morning and find Mr. Right perched under your tree, but it’s a good start for shifting your thoughts into a love-based mindset. I found find that love comes our way when our heart is open. Use the holiday season to practice making room in your heart for others, including a new partner. Finding love can often be that simple, and it has nothing to do with the time of year.

Cherish your family and friends and be social. Attend parties you’re invited to and spread the love you have in your heart. I believe when we radiate love, we receive love in return. And remember to be kind. What can be the most wonderful time of the year for many can also be a very stressful time for others less fortunate.
 
Happy holidays and good luck!

By Megan Weks

We are afraid to say we want something real. We ease into the relationship secretly hoping it will turn into something of substance. We keep quiet. We don’t want to “scare him away” by getting serious all of a sudden. Maybe you tried that before and nothing changed. Maybe you still went along with it trying to be “cool” and telling yourself, “I can handle it.” Meanwhile, you’re busy quietly nursing a dull heartache behind the scenes. You weren’t even dating but it’s fading away. You know it’s ending. You try to reignite it. You were hoping for more. He wasn’t even your boyfriend. Why does this hurt so badly? The answer may surprise you.

Expert Dating Advice: Men Who Want to Date Women Their Age

Posted In: Dating Advice Videos, Single in Stilettos Shows Articles


By Gillian Lee

In this week’s Single In Stiletto’s dating advice video, founder and love expert Suzanne Oshima talks to Robert Manni about men who want to date women their age. Watch the video above and read the article below for some dating tips in your life!

Dating Women Their Own Age

 

Robert Manni is the author of “The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Love.” Manni is based in New York City, and he wanted to write a novel that was based in his area from the male point of view.

1. Experience: There are a lot of cultural differences if there’s a large age gap, so you have to keep up with each other. A lot of guys would much rather date people who are age appropriate. “Women who have been around a little bit have some experience and maturity, money, and power and connections, these things are all important,” Manni states. It’s important to be on the same wavelength as each other when you’re talking about jobs.

2. Empathy: Older women may have more empathy when it comes to “real-life scenarios.” They’re going to understand the feeling of ‘having to go find another job’ and other examples. They’re going to understand more than 22-year-old women would. Don’t worry about the guys who want to date younger women using dating apps, because they won’t be able to change!

Coworker Romance.

By Marisa Gooch

Most of us typically view work as a place to acquire skills, earn an income, and build a social circle. But for some, work can also be a place to find their happily ever after.

Take Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, for example. They met while judging for The Voice in 2014. What began as a simple friendship soon sprouted into something more. Now, Stefani and Shelton have been dating for three years and are still going strong.

Expert Dating Advice: The #1 Thing Holding You Back From The Right Relationship

Posted In: Relationship Advice Articles, Single in Stilettos Shows Articles

By Gillian Lee

In this weeks Single in Stilettos, dating advice video, founder and relationship expert Suzanne Oshima talks to Antia Boyd about the #1 thing holding you back from the right relationship. Watch the video above and read the article below to find out some good dating tips in your life!

What’s Holding You Back In A Relationship

 

Boyd tells us that the number one thing holding us back from the right relationship is that we’re always wanting to be right! Boyd states, “I need to be right because when I’m right I can rely on that and I can’t rely on anyone else.” She explains this is how most women feel, and this can ultimately hold you back.

Related Link: 3 Signs He’s Falling In Love With You

You have to be willing to be wrong in dating. Acknowledge you can be wrong, and that will allow you to fully open up. Us women are so used to being, “strong independent women” and we love being in control and always knowing the outcome. Oshima states, “sometimes you just have to go with the flow and that’s how things happen organically.” It’s hard sometimes for independent women to allow the man to take the lead and receive in a relationship. But doing so, will let your relationship thrive!

Related Link: How To Build A Lasting Love

Most women haven’t perfected the “transitioning” between work mode, and love mode. Women should have a transition between when they leave work to when they are back with their significant other, so it shows a man that you’re giving them your undivided attention.

Question from Andrew L: It’s easy to look good online. There’s photo editing and time to plan what to say. When you finally meet someone in person after connecting online, there’s only one chance to impress. How can I make sure a first date is a win?

You have a match on your favorite dating app and the conversations online are taking off. You’re up for hours talking to your match and find that you’re both interested in each other. But how can you be sure to impress on a first date when you’ve already gotten to know each other? How do you make a successful transition from online to in person dating? Read dating advice from our relationship experts Suzanne Oshima and Robert Manni!

Dating Advice to Help You Successfully Transition from Online Conversations to a Killer First Date!

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: Online dating can seem like a major convenience for people that are too busy to get out there and meet people, but technology can be a setback when it comes to actually meeting someone face to face. In order to win that first date after meeting online, it’s important to be the best version of yourself— both inside and out. When you’re able to achieve that level of confidence and self-love, that’s when the right man will ask you out.

Having high self-esteem, knowing your self-worth, and understanding exactly what you have to offer a man is key. If you believe it, then he will see it, too. You’ll be on your way to that first date in no time! And if he can’t see that an amazing woman is right in front of him, then he’s probably the wrong man for you!

Related Link: Relationship Advice: Can You Fall in Love Just By Chatting Online?

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: There are so many dating apps and websites that today’s singles often overanalyze things after making an online connection, sadly never scoring an actual date. When I was single and dating online frequently, I became comfortable approaching women online and responding to the ladies who contacted me first.

If I felt attracted to how a woman presented herself online, I’d send a short note and ask an open-ended question about her profile. If she responded, I’d send my digits. If the woman was still interested, she’d invariably send me her number and I’d make sure to call her by the next day. I’d keep the conversation short and, if things felt right, I’d suggest meeting. This usually led to a first “date” over a beverage. After that first face-to-face meet up things either moved forward or went nowhere. It was that simple.

So, if you see someone you like online, be cool, but make your move. Don’t overanalyze. Trust your gut, but keep an open mind.There are a lot of cool people out there just like you. Remember, dating is a fun sport. Good luck.

Dating Advice: What To Do When Online Dating Isn’t Working For You

Posted In: Love, Relationship Advice Articles
Cupid's Pulse Article: Dating Advice: What To Do When Online Dating Isn’t Working For You
Photo: Twitter

By Lisa Smith

Although online dating is one of the most common ways to meet someone these days, it doesn’t work for everyone. There are several research-based reasons why online dating isn’t actually the best way to meet someone.

For some people, online dating is frustrating because it’s so easy for prospects to present themselves in a way that is much different from who they are in real life. It’s incredibly easy to portray yourself as a great catch and hide your bad qualities in the online world.

Others claim the bigger problem is simply that online dating presents them with too much choice which is too overwhelming.

Overall, many of today’s singles avoid dating apps and websites because they are a time suck. It requires so much time to sift through the bad matches and find someone worth talking to. A great way to waste your time is by chatting with someone online for ages, only to meet them in person and realize there is no connection.

Here is some dating advice if you’re single, and online dating just isn’t working for you.

Let’s say you are with someone you’re dating at home, you like each other, but you both experience some shyness. In this case, an excellent option is to watch some movies together. The question is, which ones? Let’s figure it out. To begin with, set aside vulgarity and rudeness. They don’t promote a romantic mood, and instead, they push single ladies away. Remember one thing: the movie you choose will say a lot about you, and it will either help or hurt your cause when it comes to your love interest.

Cupid's Pulse Article: Dating & Technology Q&A: Should You Delete Pictures of a Long-Term BF?
Happy young couple. Photo: Maridav / Bigstock.com

Question from Mara S.: My ex and I broke up after having a long-term relationship. Should I take pictures of us down from social media now that I’m seeing someone new or should the new guy in my life understand that my ex and I had a long history together?

Technology makes it so easy to share with the world the things that matter to you. It’s normal to post memories that you want to hold onto, but beware of what message your social media is sending. When you are interested in someone, you devour everything online about them in hopes of learning something new. That’s true for someone interested in you. What do you want someone to learn about you from your photos online? Read below for dating advice from relationship experts!

Technology Dating Advice that Helps You Know When to Delete Pics of Your Ex

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: While you and your ex had a long history together, it’s time to take the pictures down and move on with your new guy. There’s a great quote by T.D. Jakes that best sums it up, “You can’t drive forward looking in the rearview mirror.”

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: My answer is a resounding yes. When it’s time to move forward, take down all photos from social media of you with your ex. If you want a new beginning, especially with someone new, you need to send him the right signals about your availability. The past has merit. We live, we love, and we learn, but there must be a reason your former boyfriend is now your ex. If you’re having a hard time deleting photos of him off social media, perhaps you are not quite ready to move on. If you truly want a new beginning, then start fresh on social media and give your new suitors the opportunity to see who you are right now. If things work out, they could be the luck one in your pictures. Good luck!

Question from Kirstie W: When my boyfriend and I first started dating, our texts were fun and exciting. When we saw each other at the end of the day, we still had a lot to talk about even though we had been texting all day. After being together for six years, texting is non-exisant and when we do see each other all we talk about is work. Conversation is getting stale; help!

Long-term relationships face unique challenges. Conversations can be much more in depth because you know each other better. At the same time, conversations can run dry because you already know so much about each other. After awhile, talks are less about discovery and more about supporting each other. This dating advice from relationship experts Suzanne Oshima and Robert Manni will help bring excitement back into any relationship!
