If you are clumsy, cheeky, uncertain, crazy, single, gorgeous, unorganised, super tidy, untidy or always late, you are unique and one of a kind. There is no one quite like you.

If you are ever dating someone who makes you feel like you are not good enough, remember that you wouldn’t want to spend time with that sort of person anyway. A life partner should make you feel like you are special just the way you are.

Learn how to dress and present yourself in the best light
Take some time and effort to assess and improve your wardrobe to gain some confidence in dating. It can have a dramatic effect on your confidence level. The colours you wear or the style of your glasses all affect the way that people view you.

Body language
Be aware of how you are holding your body. People who have movements that are more open and spread out, that take up more space-also feel confident. If you are not feeling confident, studies have shown that even faking high power poses caused people to become more confident. You may be in a situation where you don’t want to be perceived as too arrogant. Amy Cuddy disclosed in her Ted Talk “Your body language shapes who you are” that opening up your body for a few minutes prior to an important meeting or date, even in if it’s in the privacy of a bathroom, can make a big difference to gain confidence in dating.

Brush up on some current topics
Do conversations about politics, current affairs or economics make you feel unintelligent? Read up about it to gain confidence in dating. Then you will know that you can at least make some intelligent and relevant comments about current topics in the news

A Table for Six

 

Meet our 11 out of 10’s at dinner

I received an email from a lady this week. She is attractive, focused on her career and has good friends and family. Patricia (not real name) has been attracting men who are either boring intellectuals or smooth talkers with film star looks. She has big dreams but was ready to give up on finding her life partner.

 

Clearly Patricia needs to make a change and do something different so that she doesn’t keep repeating the mistakes of her past. She is tired of having her heart broken by the charismatic guys and wasting her time with the boring guys.

 

I told Patricia that almost every man who finds success at our dinners doesn’t have film star looks and doesn’t drive a Ferrari or Lamborghini.

  • They are good-looking in their own way, but would never get a job as a model.
  • They enjoy being active, but may be a little soft around the middle.
  • They are smart, but don’t think they are superior and look down on others.

 

The good news for Patricia is that there are a lot more of these men she can meet than the ones who speak French, dance the Tango, participate in marathons and earn 6 figure incomes.  Patricia has just been looking in the wrong places.

 

If you have a similar story to Patricia, cross out most of the things on your list, broaden your view and come along to our dinners to meet our 11 out of 10’s.

Are you timid, confident or aggressive?

The way you communicate with others has a huge effect on your relationships. Especially when single and meeting new people. When you attend a dinner, people will be meeting you and subconsciously making decisions about you. They will be noticing things such as your posture, your voice and the way you make eye contact.

Successful woman become that way because they have worked hard and been responsible for making things happen in their working life. They’ve taken on challenges and risen to the task. But in their social life, a corporate or strong manner may be unappealing to some men. Their manner may be seen as aggressive. It’s not a matter of dumbing down. It’s having a manner that would allow a man to feel as though he could be the male and protective of his lady.

Men with a lack of confidence or the awareness of how they are presenting themselves may appear to be timid or aggressive. Neither of these approaches is usually successful in attracting a healthy relationship with a lady. But, there is something very inviting and enjoyable about meeting a man who is confident in himself, but not aggressive.

Below are some tips on determining if you are being timid, confident or aggressive. They refer to women, but apply to men as well. They are from Rachel Green who has 2 websites with a lot of valuable information on self-confidence for men and women. http://www.confident-woman.com.au and http://www.rachelgreen.com

Are you timid, confident or aggressive? Check out these tips to find out.

Tip 1: Timid, confident or aggressive: Your voice.

A timid person may speak with a quiet voice, which may be breathy.

A confident woman will usually have a clear, easy to hear voice.

An aggressive voice is more likely to have a harsh, tight sound to it, and may be unpleasant to listen to for any length of time.

Tip 2: Timid, confident or aggressive: Your eyes.

A woman who is timid may drop her eyes and avoid eye contact.

A confident woman is more likely to have direct eye contact, but maintain this softly without staring.

An aggressive eye contact is often hard, fixed or staring. A glare can be quite aggressive too.

Tip 3: Timid, confident or aggressive: Your chest.

When a woman is timid she may sink in her chest or collapse it. She may appear weak, soft or fragile.

If a woman is confident she is more likely to be open, upright and have width across her chest. However, she will maintain this position in a relaxed, comfortable way.

A woman who has aggressive body language may also have an open upright chest but it is tight. Tension in the body is typical of aggressive behaviour.
