Dear Betty,I am at the very beginning of a new relationship and need advice. Here are the details:I’m 48 and she is 47. We both have kids – I have a son in college and she has two teenage sons. We used to work together and have known each other for five years. We always flirted, but were in other relationships. We are no longer co-workers and fate has put us on the same path—both available. I called her up and we met for a drink, caught up, had a blast, laughing and chatting. We briefly touched … [Read More...] about Question: Can you advise me how to proceed on a third date with a girl that makes me butterfly nervous?
Dear Betty, My girlfriend Nelly broke up with me last week. She said it was because she knew that our relationship had an expiration date—we are both going to be going off to grad school in the next 18 months and had already talked about how we probably wouldn’t do long distance. I was still stunned because we really love each other and had such a good time together. She suffers from anxiety and I think that may be related. Should I try to help her see that it would not be a bad thing to just … [Read More...] about Question: Should I try to get my girlfriend back?
I'm very introverted by nature and not very good at reading people. In relationships I tend not to feel the need to lead hence I think I tend to attract narcissistic men. Needless to say my relationships all end very badly and dramatically because it takes time for me to figure the other person out. And as much as I don't feel the need to control, I don't want to be controlled either! My question is how can I end this streak of attracting narcissistic partners? Should I be more assertive? … [Read More...] about Question: How can I end this streak of attracting narcissistic partners?
I had everything I wanted—a successful business, great friends and family, and yet I had no one special to share it with. What I wanted most was a serious relationship. I contacted Betty and through her active coaching program I was able to prioritize my love life and give it the attention it needed. She helped me select compatible potential partners and taught me how to date the right way. I’ve been dating Rebecca exclusively for 5 months. She is everything I want and need in a relationship…”
Dear Betty, I thank you for all your advice and help in discovering what was keeping me from having love in my life. You showed me that with the right attitude and dating skills dating can be fun. I went from having no dates to having more than I ever thought possible. I have been dating someone special for 10 months now. We are planning a hiking get-away next month and I’m going to pop the question. I hope she says yes! Thank you Betty for giving me the courage to look for love.”
When I first came to Betty I’d had repeated unhealthy relationships. She helped me to break my destructive dating habits and get me on the right track. She re-wrote my online dating profile and selected my best pictures. We selected the best sites for me and worked through the process of online dating. I met a lot of nice women and found the one I dreamed of. We are engaged and plan to marry in June. Thank you Betty, it wouldn’t have happened without your support.”
You are single. You have approximately zero minutes a day to spend on dating sites. You do not want to break the bank. And you love your smart phone. Lucky for you there are some amazing dating apps that were probably created specifically for you! Or at least for people just like you who can’t wait to find love, companionship, sex—all that good stuff—but need to streamline the process. Also lucky for you, I offer professional profile support. I vet photos (and believe me, many people screw up … [ read more ]
If you’re a woman over 40 entering the dating world, you’re probably aware of the way Hollywood and popular culture love to depict you. In spite of the media stereotypes, you most likely are not a crazy woman in a shawl living with 40 cats, nor are you a “broad” in cheetah leggings, feathered mules, and makeup to hide the face it was meant to enhance. In most cases, women over 40 have wonderful life experiences to bring to a relationship–from raising children to running a household, from … [ read more ]

Last week we looked at how the “about me” section can actually work against someone, and how you can spot the red flags. Pictures, on the other hand, seem pretty straightforward, right? You like, you don’t… what’s complicated about that? Not so fast. There are plenty of shady tactics in this most popular section of the online profile. For example… No picture? Click “not interested.” That person is hiding something… or from someone. Old photos: red flag. Some people only post old photos, … [ read more ]
“Let’s just be friends.” Four words dreaded by anyone who’s been in a fading or unequal relationship with what turns out to be a short shelf life. The comedic English singing duo, Rocky and Balls, sing about it quite hilariously in this video: Though the whole topic is superb fodder for a strange variety of gallows humor or late night rants with any number of sympathetic listeners, it is actually possible for exes to become, or remain, friends. I know of couples, long divorced, … [ read more ]
I’ve lost count of how many of the couples I know met originally online. Once people meet and get to know one another it does not matter how they met. Whether you are introduced to your grandfather’s neighbor at a family party, or sparks fly with someone you meet at your local bookstore, meeting is just the beginning of a process I’ve written about here before – a process that has a beginning, middle, and end. My goal is to get you on that road. Meeting is the very first step on that road. … [ read more ]
