I recently met a divorced woman in her forties who had just broken up with her boyfriend of two years. She was telling me about her experiences of getting back out there to date. One of her last dates chastised her for wanting to date “for fun”.

You see, she wasn’t ready for anything serious and wanted to just go out, meet nice people and have an enjoyable time. What’s wrong with that? Well, nothing. The guy she went out with was in a different place than she was. If he was looking for a serious relationship, then he needs to make that clear – that he’s dating for a committed relationship.

One needs to be kind of a detective and look for the clues. It’s all about being honest with yourself and others about why you are out there dating. For my clients who are serious about finding a marriage partner, I tell them not to beat around the bush and to make that upfront in their internet profiles and their phone conversations with their potential dates.

They don’t have to imply that they believe you are “the one” on the first date, however, they can say, “I’m looking for a marriage partner, how about you?” You can only hope their tone of their voice indicates that you can trust what they are saying and not leading you on.

If you are just looking for a pleasant evening out with no expectations of anything else, then I believe you need to be upfront and tell people what you are looking for at this time.

My premise in Motivated to Marry™ is that you need to look for someone who is in the same place and has the same goals that you do. This is when this dating will yield the best results!

Why date at all?

Why not go out and have fun with a group of like-minded friends?

Oh, wait.

This is e-commerce spam, isn't it?

And I was so excited that it would be something interesting . . . I hate the spammers.
