My mission is to provide encouragement, support, resources and insight for people who are seeking a loving life partner, people on their own mission to find the love of their life.
I know firsthand how difficult this search can be, especially if you have few examples of healthy relationships in your family of origin or circle of friends, or if – like me – you’ve experienced the agony and embarrassment of a “failed” marriage yourself.
My family tree is riddled with disdainful marriages and contentious divorces. When my apple fell from that tree and finally rolled away, I was unequivocal in my quest: I would figure out what I didn’t know about healthy relationships and find a partner to help me build one. I yearned to create a kind and compassionate family, and – more than anything – I wanted to leave a different legacy for my children.
Thomas Edison’s response to those who doubted the possibility of electric lighting became my dating motto: “I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Jeez, if Edison could invent electric lighting in 10,000 tries, surely I would find my man if I, too, took notes, was patient and persistent.
And I did find my man after reading towers of books and dating dozens (not thousands) of guys. But it also took years. Because I had so much to learn and – in spite of my note taking – I sometimes succumbed to discouragement, repeated mistakes, and foolishly doubted my vision.
Now, I want to share what I’ve learned to make your search more expeditious. I’d like to be your ally and advocate as you pursue your quest to find true love and craft the relationship you long for. Foolproof dating is the first step: coaching for clarity and accountability – so you don’t repeat unproductive patterns, so you don’t sell your dreams short.
The second step – when you’re ready to explore commitment, is ProActive Partnership Retreats. But let’s take one step at a time.
At home, we have a sign in our kitchen that reads, “If I had my life to live over, I’d find you sooner so I could love you longer.” My mission is to help you find your love sooner, so you can love longer.
