You’re dressed to kill, ready to be your fun, flirty self and raring to rock your date’s world. But despite your best efforts, your soulmate-to-be turned out to be another dud.
That’s just the reality of meeting and going out with men – sometimes, things don’t go according to plan.
You hope for the best, but you just can’t seem to catch a break. And when you’ve had your expectations crushed one time too many, it can wear out even the most optimistic woman.
So you end up asking yourself, “Where are all the decent, funny, good-looking guys hiding…and why can’t I land one no matter how hard I try?”
It would be so much easier if you could just look into a crystal ball and know exactly when and where Mr. Right is going to be. But the fact is that you’ll never really know when you’ll “hit it big” and finally meet the guy who’s right for you.
One of the basic (and awful) truths about dating is that you don’t have any control over a big part of the process, like your date’s character and intentions, for example.
And the thought of that can make anyone feel helpless. However, there are a few things you can do take ownership of your dating life – and happiness.
Ever heard the expression “More money, more problems”? Just look at the billionaire CEOs and celebrities driving their lives right to the ground in spite of everything they have.
Contrary to what MOST of us think, having a big pile of cash lying around doesn’t guarantee we’re always going to be happy. In fact, what we believe will make us happy won’t actually do the trick.
And that applies to dating as well. You might assume that a certain kind of guy is going to give you your “happily ever after”, but the expectations in our heads don’t always correlate to reality.
