the space between therapy and coaching
Because you’re worth it
Step 2: Creating our personalized list
We spend so much time considering what kind of person would make the perfect employee, roommate and pet-sitter, yet we expect our life-partner to fall into our lap. It’s time to apply the employee, roommate and pet-sitter principles to our dating life, without worrying about being fair or politically correct.
Jane will work with you to define your list of ideal attributes in your new mate – from profession to body-type – with no guilt or shame for naming exactly what floats your boat.
Step 3: Putting ourselves out there
There’s an old joke about a man who repeatedly prays to God that he would win the lottery. Every week he checks the results, and every week, he finds he hasn’t won. Eventually, he cries out to God, “why won’t you answer my prayer?” And God responds, “Do you think you could you meet me half way and buy a ticket?”
The moral of the story: it’s unlikely we’re going to meet our new mate in the grocery store. Getting on a dating site increases the size of our pool, and if we’re serious about meeting someone new, we might need to give our guardian angels a little help. Jane will advise you on the merits of different dating sites, educate you on warning signs to look out for, and assist you with your profile so you can give your those angels a fighting chance.
Step 5: Landing someone great
If the steps are followed closely, it shouldn’t be long until you truly land someone great, but it’s important to do a gut-check. Jane will walk you through paying attention to your body to keep you safe, and teach you about relational communication and problem-solving strategies. She’ll also discuss what’s appropriate to expect from your new mate as you move towards long-term exclusivity.
