Life In Flux

by Tamar Caspi under Date Night,JDate,Online Dating,Single Life

How do you date when your life is in flux? You could be between jobs, between homes, in the midst of a divorce, or all three. Some would say you may not want to be dating until you have some stability, but if you want to continue dating, then do so, just do it with grace. What does that mean?

Don’t let your life’s clutter invade your JDate profile or your time on the date. Try to focus on the positive things you have going on in your life and wait until a relationship is progressing before getting into it further.

If you are having a difficult time putting your best foot forward then perhaps you ought to wait until your life has a bit more consistency before dating actively. Peruse JDate and use the hot prospects as motivation to get your sh** together.

Date Like a Single Parent, Even if You’re Not

by Tamar Caspi under Relationships

Try looking at your romantic prospects like you were going to have to one day introduce him or her to your child. My single mom friends won’t even give a guy the time of day who they wouldn’t consider one day being a stepfather to their kids. My single dad friends say the exact same thing. If you’re childless but desire to have a family someday then it wouldn’t hurt to look at your prospects as your future co-parent. That kind of thinking raises the bar, doesn’t it? Would this person be a good role model for your child? Ask yourself that question as you peruse your prospects and then notice how the quality of your dates increases.
