Dating and Relationship Coach – Leverage Passion Week to Meet More (Single) People

OK, so I know I said I would focus on Baby Boomer Dating this week. However, since it is Passion Week (namely Easter and Passover), I’m flexing my schedule and will instead post of leveraging the events of a given week to MEET MORE PEOPLE, in particular, other singles.

The thing to remember for singles is that yes you want to be meeting other singles, you want to be targeted. But not TOO targeted. Because over 85% of married people met their spouse through other people in their existing social circle.

So, the point here is, expand your social circle with a variety of people. AND do not only focus all of your efforts 100% if the time in meeting other SINGLES.

With Passion Week, whatever your religious beliefs or non-religious beliefs, this is a great time of the year when people are gravitating to various religious institutions to congregate.

Namely, we have the Law of Large Numbers. Large numbers of people are going to Church this week. Leverage that.

Thursday Night is Maundy Thursday. More Catholic, Lutheran and Episcopal Churches observe that.

Friday is GOOD FRIDAY, there will be both noontime and evening services.

Saturday is Easter Vigil with services in the evening and into the night.

Sunday is Easter and some will have Early Morning Sunrise services, often churches near a beach. Other denominations will have services at different times in the morning.

For the Jews, there is the Passover Seder meal. This is typically observed in the home. Phone around and see if any of the temples are hosting any Seder events which you could join. Many will be open to having guests. Oye! Ask.

The other thing, HABIT, which you will be practicing by doing this is the Habit of Learning New Things and Continual Life Learning. THAT is a habit which reinvigorates and revitalizes any long term romantic relationship. Life partners and married couples need infusions of newness in their relationships.

Your going to some services which are DIFFERENT than what you would NORMALLY do is YOUR practicing that Revived Relationship best practice.

Happy Dating and Relationships!

    These are really good ideas for meeting someone practicing their religions. Probably a good idea to find someone compatible in terms of your beliefs.

    i thought of meeting singles in church but didn’t want to be responsible for the death of innocent people when the roof caved in on me.

    You offer a lot of good ideas on how to meet new people. Someone following your advice is sure to find a date.


  • JJ Jalopy April 7, 2009, 12:29 AM

    Again, great, practical, inspiring advice.

    I like the advice to not just focus on meeting singles. If you’re out at an event and getting on great with someone one who is married or in a relationship, then I’m willing to bet that they’re going to want to introduce you to some of their single friends!

    I love the encouraging attitude of your posts.

    Keep it comin’!

    Lots of great ideas to meet more single people. Here in Europe, a lot of people take advantage of the long weekend to take a whole week off and start their barbecue season, go out to bars and clubs, do some diy and generally do “holiday” things. That’s yet a lot more places one can go to to meet to network and meet new people.

    All the best,

  • Philip Graves April 7, 2009, 12:42 AM

    It shouldn’t, but it does… take you applying some basic mathematical sense to the issue of dating to push people into action.

    I’m worried about the agnostics though – they may not be sure where to go in the search 😉

    Great article. Church is a great place to meet other singles. My brother-in-law is currently dating a lady he met at a church event.

    Datng is always a number game with qaulity inmind as well.

    Sooner or later, when singles are pushing ther boundaries and meetignother singles, they’ll find their appropriate matching pairs. Pure Numerology expedites such matching process.

    Phil, last I checked, they do let agnostics into churches, particulary to the singles events!!!!!!
    But I think April’s point is to not be self limiting about where you look…and to follow your own intersts….which is where, statistically, singles meet other singles(or so I have read!)

    Lots of great ideas (as usual!) April. I already have plans for Thursday night (aren’t you proud of me?!). Now, I may have to check out what the local “Passion Week activities” are!

    All the best,

  • Pam Schulz April 14, 2009, 8:28 PM


    I never thought about it this way, but you’re right, learning new things must become a practiced habit for one to feel comfortable getting out of their comfort zone.


  • David Power April 19, 2009, 4:28 PM

    I’d prefer to meet a date down at the pub!!!
