Introduction: Time to Shine Online Dating series

online-dating-love-flickr-300x226More and more women in their 40s, 50s and beyond are separating from their long-term partners and are finding themselves navigating the choppy waters of being single and wanting to find love once again.

With 1 in 5 relationships now starting online and a proliferation of dating sites for all kinds of interests/cultures/persuasions, it makes sense to turn to online dating as a viable option for meeting potential future partners.

For those who haven’t dated in years or have never tried online dating, it can most certainly be an intimidating and overwhelming idea. However, in this 10-part series I am going to work with you to set you on the road to finding the relationship you deserve in a way that allows you to enjoy the experience as much as possible.

10-part series

In this series, I am going to take you through the key areas, helping you prepare for your online dating journey. I am going to guide you step by step and help you get shipshape and ready to attract the dates you want and deserve!

If you follow the series and take a couple of minutes out of your day to do the mini exercises, you will find yourself ready to tackle the dating world with confidence and enthusiasm.

First up will be the importance of self-love and why we need it in droves to be successful at dating. We will then go on to look at developing a simple yet successful strategy that works for you, details of how to create a winning dating profile, ideal profile photos, email etiquette, how to attract the right kind of partners and how to make the dates work for you.
