To all the folks in the EU who are stuck in various ways where you are, grounded with their air travel, my condolences. You might have been on a business trip. Or maybe you were on a holiday or vacation as we refer to it in The States. Being stuck and grounded is frustrating. However, for you and for all of us, whether, single, dating, or married, then let me suggest you make good use of the time where you are to meet more new people. For all the singles looking for love and searching for their Soul Mate, my expert dating advice reminder is the tip:
Dating Tip – You Never Know Where You Will Meet Your Soul Mate
You never know who that special someone will or through whom you will meet them. Story after story of all the married couples I interview for my ongoing dating and relationship expert research tell me of having met through a chance encounter.
Dating Tip – Get Out and Mingle Where You Are at a Park
Well, wherever you are, make use of the time. So often business people while business travel will just sort of stay in their hotel rooms aiming to get a lot of work done. As a business woman myself, indeed, I totally respect that. However, during your Sunday afternoon add Law of Large Numbers to your advantage. Do aim to get out and mingle where lots of people congregate. Is there a park nearby where you are staying? Go talk an energetic walk around there. Be sure to walk where you are facing the bulk of the flow of traffic. Smile, nod your head, and say, “Hi, beautiful day,” and those sort of sentences.
Dating Tip – Get Out and Mingle Where You Are at a Cafe
Where is there an outdoor cafe where others are sitting at tables? Sure, many of them might be tourists and you’ll never see them again. Then again you just might meet a single beautiful woman who lives in your neighborhood or “District” as it is known in France. Select a table near where there are others sitting. Of course, you don’t know who is and isn’t single, available for dating, or in a relationship. You are just aiming to help Cupid out by your being public to meet lots of people rather than remain holed up in your hotel room. If you’re in London, there are more likely coffee shops and tea shops with little tables. Go there. The point is to connect with others and make meeting and interacting comfortably with new people part of your daily habit.
It is easy to break the ice and cross the sound barrier. You have an easy conversation starter topic right now which is affecting everyone. “How about all that Volcanic Ash from Iceland? Can you believe it? How is affecting your life?” Boom, you should be able to exchange at least 5 sentences back and forth casually with a perfect stranger on that topic. Your shared experience of being victimized in some way by the volcanic ash from Iceland will help you to build rapport.
