In this special interview on the Single Over 30 podcast, I have a great conversation with one of my old roommates, Monica, who married in her thirties and met her husband in a way that will blow your mind! My conversation with Monica is a reminder that all things are possible.

In a Toxic Relationship? How to Tell
Before I married, I once chatted with a 36-year-old man on the Internet who asked if I would like to see his requirements for a mate and marriage. “Sure‚” I typed. “Send them over.” His request was curious, but I was amused when I received his list for the perfect wife.
In today’s podcast, I share what I learned about this guy and I also share 23 questions you can ask yourself to identify if you are in an toxic relationship or if you meet a man how to tell if he could be abusive.
9 First Date Dilemmas (and what to do about them)
Hey there, Single Lady!
First Date Dilemmas. They happen all the time. Maybe he asks you out after the first date but then you never hear from him again.
He asks you out, you go out and have a good time, but then seems like he just wants to text you. He doesn’t move the ball down the field and ask you out again.
You want him to ask you out after the first date, but aren’t sure how to let him know without coming across as chasing.
Ooooh! This is going to be a great episode because I’m going to share 9 First Date Dilemmas like those that I just mentioned and share what to do about them. You're going to love it!

How Grieving the Loss of Ideal Love Can Help You Find True Love
Many women I coach struggle with deep grief that their love story hasn't worked out the way they desire when they enter their late thirties and early forties. Maybe you can relate. (I certainly felt a lot of grief in my forties.)
It's disappointing when you feel love should happen in your life in a certain way by a certain time and it doesn't happen that way at all. And not only can it be disappointing, but it can fill soul shattering.
You thought things would go this way, then you wake up one morning and realize that the years have come and gone and your deepest dreams and desires for romance haven't been fulfilled—and you doubt they will be fulfilled now.
You think, “Too much time has passed. My vision of my fairy tale life has flown away with the ticking of the clock.”
The dream romance you thought you would have when you were young is replaced by the painful reality that finding him feels much more complicated than you could have ever imagined.
If you can relate to any of what I just shared, I want to encourage you!
In this episode of the Single Over 30 podcast, I am going to share how grieving the loss of your ideal love life can help you find true love. It really can! I experienced this myself and I know it's possible.
Be encouraged, awesome single lady!
The dream that you have--to love and be loved--is possible!

What to Do When You Feel Afraid to Date or to Love
When I was dating and I met a man I really liked, I often experienced a lot of fear. There was something in me that would get triggered and I would become very anxious.
I was confident and happy in the rest of my life, but enter Mr. Charming and poof! My confidence vanished and I was replaced by a fearful woman I hardly recognized.
Maybe you can relate. What do you do if you're afraid to date, afraid to love, or even if when a guy just looks at you and smiles that you go into a spin of "What ifs"?
Good news! I'm here to help you today with encouragement and practical advice on this episode of the Single Over 30 podcast.
If you'd like to take the next step to get help with your dating and relationship life to help you attract that trustworthy, marriage-minded man, I'd love to help!

Things That Keep Women Single
Around the time I turned 35, I started wondering, "Why am I still single?" I had no idea what would have possibly prevented me from meeting my Mister Right. What I didn't know was that I had some unhealthy dating patterns that were holding me back from engaging in healthy relationships. It was only after I married and started coaching single women that I realized how my dating choices kept me from healthy love.
If you've ever wondered why you haven't met a special guy, you might be able to relate to some points in this episode.
But before you listen, please hear me: this episode is not to blame you or make you beat yourself up. Every single thing that I talk about that keeps women single in this episode is something you can change. You are not irretrievably broken. There is nothing "wrong" with you so that you can't have a relationship. But just like it is with everything else in life, we can learn new skills.
And, just like I met a great guy who loves and adores me, I am confident that you can meet a great man too!
The dream you have to love--and be loved--is possible!
