The first Sunday of the new year, which has just passed us, was said to be one of the largest days for online dating. Although I've been out of the field for awhile, I caught myself thinking about many of my friends whom this day would apply to. In turn, I thought it would be fitting to share some tips I've learned while exploring the online dating world.
If I learned anything from online dating, it was just to have fun with it. Whether this means simply meeting up for a drink in a locale you haven't frequented before or meeting in tourist-filled part of the city you generally avoid, just have fun with it. There will be times when you walk away wondering what just happened. Then again, those situations offer the opportunity for the next date to potentially be that much better and to have one of those stories you'll be talking about for years to come with your girlfriends. Oh the fun of swapping online dating stories.
I have quite a few friends who are now married and who met via online dating. Although in some circles, online dating doesn't seem to have the stigma it once did, it can still be intimidating. If this happens, go back to my first point. Don't go into each conversation thinking this particular individual will be "the one" and game over - half of the fun is the journey to get there. Plus, the more open you are about sharing your online dating successes and opportunities with others, the more tips you may pick up and may even be surprised to learn who else is online.
Of course we always want to look our best, especially when meeting someone new for the first time. Yet, it's so important to still be you. Although I've mentioned this in other posts, it's important to say once again because when you aren't comfortable - maybe you are trying a new red lipstick when you are used to only wearing a sheer gloss or left your go-to black cardigan at home because your friend couldn't believe you would wear "that thing" again - you won't be you. Ultimately, you want this person to like you for you and get to know you.
Sporting some Adea is a way to always have something comfortable and familiar on too!
On that note, happy online dating and here's to a wonderful 2016.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
