Is 2012 the Year You Will Meet Your Husband?
I just received my fifth email in so many days from a client or potential client saying in some form or fashion that they wanted 2012 to be the year they meet the man they are going to marry. Sweet! That said, each and every one of them had completely stalled out in their dating game. Probably a great reason to reach out to a coach!
It always annoys me when one of my single friends talks about my husband like he fell out of the sky or I won some sort of random husband lottery. David didn’t just happen to me. The reason it annoys me is that my close friends know there was a long and winding road to happily-ever-after for me. My friends also know I made a lot of mistakes when I was dating. Some of those mistakes were big ones. Some of them cost me dearly.
However, I did one thing right when it came to finding the love of my life. I did one thing that just about guaranteed my success. What’s the magic secret? I kept trying. I kept kissing frogs until one of them turned into a prince. I didn’t give up. I did take a break from the dating scene, but I never took my eyes off the prize.
I always laugh when I hear women say, “There’s nothing but losers on Match.com. You should see them Lisa. It’s not worth my $25 a month.” I laugh because I do know how many losers there are on Match.com. I think I dated all of them or at least exchanged emails with each of them. However, heres the kicker. I met my love on Match. I’m not saying Match.com is the answer. I am saying that if I’d given up on Match I wouldn’t have found the man I share my life with. I am also saying that every uncomfortable, ridiculous, even dangerous interaction I had while I was in the dating game was worth it. It led me someplace I am very happy and in large part prepared me to love this amazing man.
It is possible the man of your dreams might just knock on your door out of the blue. I’ve seen it happen. It’s really cool when your future fiance turns out to be the UPS man. It’s rare though. It is a million times more possible, he’s out there somewhere waiting for you to rendezvous with him. You might have to get off the couch and out of the house. If 2012 is the year you are going to meet the man of your dreams, don’t behave like a woman that’s given up on dating and love. Get a plan. Get a coach. Get out there. Because if this is your year, it’s his year too and the easier you make it for him to find you the sooner you can get this party started.
