Son of the Date Doctor

Matt is getting ready for his 12th birthday. He is into many things including Facebook. I look over his shoulder as he chats with one particular girl we will call Julie (only because Matt will not be happy if I use her real name). I keep chiming in with my dating tips and realize it is no easy task to be the son of the Date Dr. And I remind myself he is 11! I should just let him be a silly kid. But still the tips seem to jump out of my mouth. These tips work for all ages. So whether you are 11 or 61 here is my advice about dating and facebook. 1. When you log in wait a minute before jumping on the chat. You may be excited to type “hey” in that little box in the bottom right hand corner of facebook, but hold off! At...

How Big is Your Deal Breaker List?

Let’s face it women are far more likely to have these deal breaker lists than men. Some of you write them down like a shopping list while others continually recite them over and over again in your heads! We know the list quite well and every man we meet gets dragged through it without even knowing it is happening.  Every match.com profile we read gets dissected to see if they qualify and pass our deal breaker test. Some ladies are laughing at this subject and thinking they just want a “normal” guy. And I know exactly what they mean by “normal”! They just want to meet someone who is funny, attractive, has no major issues and is into them. And I am here to tell you that you can actually find that guy! But the first step is to throw that deal breaker list out the window. Erase it from you...

Cheating??

The big question lately is whether or not an internet relationship is considered cheating. I don’t know if a divorce court judge would call this infidelity, but I sure would. Any time someone in a marriage is having a relationship that is being kept a secret and could potentially harm the relationship than it is cheating, as far as I am concerned. Imagine what could happen if we didn’t consider this cheating? I truly believe that there are plenty happy, faithful relationships in this world but I understand with all that is happening in the media that many are starting to doubt this. The truth is that if you get married in this lifetime you are going to marry one of 3 types of men. You may not figure out which type you actually married for a long time. But eventually the truth will be revealed. Now I know most married...

Soul Mates?

Do you believe everyone has a soul mate? When you first start dating someone you can’t possibly see through to their soul. You see nothing more than a shell with some fantasies about what the soul may contain. To clarify the word “soul” I looked it up on dictionary.com and found multiple definitions. But what I gathered was it is the feelings, thoughts and actions of people or the emotional part of a person. To me that means everything except the outer exterior. I call that the shell. Initially we fall for the shell, the body, the smile, the face and even the clothes and style of the person we see. We basically become what I will call shell mates in the beginning of any relationship. As time passes something happens to that shell. It changes shape, loses hair, wrinkles among many other things. The connection that those 2 shell...
