Online Dating Coach Asks, “It’s Thursday, Singles, WHAT are YOUR Social Plans for this weekend?”

Happy Dancing Loving Couple

Happy Dancing Loving Couple

Ok folks. It is Thursday.  Back in college, we had Thursday Night Club which was The Official kick off to The Weekend and our fun and busy social lives.

What about you?

What about your social life this weekend?

Do you have one?

I hear from singles who attend cocktail parties and who feel like as Boomers, aka a Mature Dater, those singles in the After 40 Dating group, that they are functionally invisible.

And the Millenials who are all so busy being each others buddies and the guys IM me through Facebook for HOW to talk to girls and what to say. The single tech guys, you know, all those wonderful white or Indian Single Engineers, surface on Friday night suddenly realizing it’s yet another weekend and they are not having any success with meeting and socializing with beautiful women.

And the men and women over 35 who just haven’t been on a date in so long they are almost giving up that there is anyone out there for them.

Really. There IS hope. and the first thing to do is to take some ACTION.

Tonight is YOUR Thursday Night Club. Don’t worry, I won’t make you go dancing. Now, of course, if you LIKE dancing… that’s another thing.

So, today you are going to TAKE ACTION.

First, is there anyone in your online dating profile whom you have already warmed up and could actually ask out on a date?

If YES, then, by all means, phone them and ask them out.

If the answer is NO, then there are OTHER actions for you to take.

More on that tomorrow.

I want you to take action and do so starting SLOWLY so you build some success momentum.

Happy Dating and Happy Relationships!

    Wonderful advice!!

    When I was a young single guy I used to go through most of my phonebook on at thursday night!

    I was shameless! 🙂

    I like your gentle encouragement April.

    I’ve been working with a number of life coaches who are helping people to find a partner. I find it a fascinating area.

    Pushing to create Dating Momentum(tm) as usual, Miss April – I like it.

    Nothing I can confess for this weekend… Seriously, you don’t expect me to share my weekend plans publicly 😉

    All the best,

    Great advice for singles and for anyone that wants to accomplish something — “take action”!

    April, Timely advice. I just finalized my divorce 2 weeks ago! Mark

  • JC MacKenzie April 2, 2009, 9:22 PM

    Hello April, do you find that the internet access is an “action inhibitor”? I see these ads of these attractive young people professing the great and wonderful “action” of curling up with a phone [dating clubs evidently] on a Saturday night. The internet has made personal contact less attractive,, less risky, just easy ? Or am I just out of touch :]



  • Duane Cunningham April 2, 2009, 10:45 PM

    Hey April,

    Now as a guy the one inhibitor to your advice to take action is that age old problem that surfaces in our mind whatever we do “what if she rejects me?”

    So how do you prepare yourself for that happening then?


  • John Ho April 3, 2009, 4:19 AM


    The Dating Expert is ack in town! Ain’t you lucky you singles!

    Make suer you use April’s service & my Puer Numerology (purenumerology (dot) net) to maximize your chance of success.


    Rejections? I think dating is just like selling:

    What is Selling? Ask Questions!

    What’s the most SINGLE important word in selling? NEXT!

    I’m sure you’ll find your “perfect” partner before you run out your prospects 🙂

    April –

    Boy and I out of it! I never realized there were so many sub-categories of those in the dating world. Your post reminded me of my post-college days when our weekends would official kick off on Thursdays…then Wednesdays…

    I’m looking forward to learning all that I don’t know about the dating world.


  • Sonya Lenzo April 3, 2009, 3:40 PM

    Perhaps it sounds serlf-serving, but wearing a SPECTACULAR rhinestone necklace, or any unusual piece of jewelry, is a GREAT way of starting a conversation!!! Even if you are just dressing up a pair of jeans and T-shirt!!!
    And yes, April, I have a date tonight!!!

  • Steve Chambers April 5, 2009, 7:15 PM

    Lots of clubs and bars have specials on Thursday night. With the declining work ethic in America Thursday has become a popular night to go out.

    All people deserve wealthy and abundant social life time. Thanks for the reminder to socialize to date. – CT

    Enjoying the weekend is essential. Singles need to get out and meet people. I agree!

  • Ned April 21, 2011, 8:19 AM
