Dating? What to Look for in a Man – 073

Dr. Zoe Shaw, A Year of Self-Care

Are you single? The dating waters can be treacherous, but they don’t have to take you under! You’re looking for a good man. Maybe you already have a list of must-haves and deal-breakers. Or perhaps you need to make one. Does this current dating world scare you? Do you assume online dating doesn’t work? What qualities do you find in a good man? Co-hosts Darlene (who is “very married”, as she puts it), and Julie (widowed boy mom re-entering the dating scene) discuss how to find a man worth your time. To gain answers, they tapped into a great resource: the team of writers at The Grit and Grace Project online magazine, who had some excellent tips. Whether you’re looking for love or think you’re over dating altogether, these insights will have you ready to mingle. (Send it to your single friend if you’re “very married” too!)

Quote of the episode:

“You have a choice, you don’t have to go out with them just because they ask you or you’re feeling lonely. Know yourself and love yourself enough to say ‘no’ to someone who isn’t for you.” -Ashby Duval
