For my astrologically-minded friends out there: This is a major "thing" tonight! #FullMoon #SuperSnowFullMoon #Relationships #Love

Happy Presidents Day!

Although I have some strong opinions about what is going on in America today, when it comes to debates--I mostly stick to fighting about (and for, much more so, for) what I know best: LOVE!

In that spirit, tomorrow, I will be attending The Great Love Debate Returns To City Winery NYC Feb 19!, hosted by Brian Howie--and I will even doing an interview with ABC News Nightline-who is covering the event on the modern day dating scene.

Want to join me? Get tickets here https://citywinery.com/…/the-great-love-debate-at-the-loft-…

💕Happy Valentine's Day! 💕As I spread the love this Feb 14th, I want to remind you all that-no matter who you are and what your relationship status- today is an opportunity to remember the greatest gift of all: LOVE!

In sharing this #throwbackthursday post from a fun, female-empowering event that I had with Ally Love of Love Squad last year, I invite you to engage in an honest reflection of your love life. Whether single or coupled, first take a look at your relationship with YOU!

A healthy relationship starts with a healthy you. Are you lacking love for yourself by neglecting an important area of your self-care--whether health, finances, career, or friendships? If in a relationship, are you and your partner truly getting what you need? How can you improve things to be happier alone and/or together? 🤔

If you are thinking this is NOT a happy Valentine's Day, make a commitment to change-to love yourself and/or your partner more-so that things can truly look better next year. In the meantime, buckle up and enjoy the ride!

And remember, this is an abundant Universe. Love is always there for you to give and receive! ❤️

#1 I do not believe that all men are less reliable than...chocolate! I never speak in absolutes, and I remind you of this, because some people get very defensive-very fast- when they see such a statement posted about men or women.

#2. I know that men get ghosted too. I have male coaching clients-who don't deserve this type of behavior-yet it happens to them as well. I am not implying that women don't ghost. I was recently asked by my friend and colleague Mike Goldstein to do a video for WOMEN on why MEN disappear, as we-along with many of our other dating industry colleagues-see women suffering from men who ghost. All. The. Time. Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn9nUigiRNI

#3. Today is #GalentinesDay--an opportunity to support women. I am sharing this post and my video to help women make sense of the ghosting madness and stay strong in this modern day dating scene.

#4: Ghosting is not cool. It can happen to anyone--regardless of age, sex, gender, socioeconomic status, or religion. It has even happened to ME! And you know what? It says nothing about me, you, or the next person. From my view: All ghosting is: A lazy, self-centered, weak behavior by someone who lost interest in you for whatever reason. Often, that reason has nothing to do with you personally. If you want some answer know that sometimes, it is that the person realized you require more---more consistent effort or love than they can give.
Likely, they are doing you a favor. So let them ghost!

If this post resonates with you, please check out my video, share with your friends, and when you are done, don't waste another minute thinking about these ghosts!

Highly Recommended: Before you commit to a serious relationship, make sure both you and your partner are truly on the same page about whether or not you want to have children. As a matchmaker, I really strive to make sure my clients are compatible in terms of lifestyle goals. Personally, I could not imagine my future without having one of these little kiddos to call my own, so I've got to make sure anyone I even consider dating wants to be a daddy--and sooner rather than later while we are at it! Thanks to the iDate founder, Marc Lesnick, for letting me borrow his little cutie after our recent conference! #relationshipadvice #relationshipgoals #relationshiptips #relationshipadvice101 #datingtips #compatibility

Last week at this time, we were just getting the party started! I had SUCH a great and productive time at the 16th Annual iDate 2019-Dating Industry Conference-in Del Ray Beach! A few more pics from last week's annual (18th) iDate Conference. Congratulations to all who won awards. (I didn't apply to be in the running for any awards this year, but I did announce a few!) Special shout out to Brittany Barreto, founder of Pheramor for winning an award on her innovative company that is "using data and genetics to bring better first dates".
