FINDING MR. RIGHT, again.

So, dating the blue-eyed Irish man was intoxicating, however I think that we are afraid to go fast based on his 2 divorces in a Catholic family and my recent sad experiences with potential Mr. Rights. So having only spoken by phone several times and eagerly anticipating our next Sunday afternoon into the world of exploration into the possibilities of a future. I look forward to the singing to one another, Yea, really romantic, and the many little flirtations that made the last date so exciting, however, now I realize that in order to attract "Mr....more

Dr. Romance on Love Styles: How to Celebrate Your Differences

Dr. Romance writes:It was one of those magical encounters with a personal truth—you know how it feels. I was fifteen, in ninth-grade English. The teacher, Mr. Rizzutto, read us a poem, and it had such a profound effect on me that even five decades later, I’m still using it as a guide. The poem, “Outwitted,” by Edwin Markham, is simple: He drew a circle that shut me out; Heretic; rebel; a thing to flout. But Love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle that took him in....more

Trying to Understand and Heal

Single? Say Yes!

We hosted a fantastic Single’s Happy Hour last night for our clients and members.  It was a huge success and a lot of fun.  We had a great turn out and we were able to make a lot of quality matches amongst the attendees.  The responses today are amazing.  People had a lot of fun and are excited at the possibility of going out on dates with the people they met.  That for us equates to a successful  event.  So how come these people got so lucky?  The reason is simple and should be part of every single person’s vocabulary…they said “yes” to the invitatio...more
