Lori Zaslow shares her 7 Dating Tips
Get out of your comfort zone and take risks. It’s the ONLY way to find real love. You have to open yourself up to it and get raw.
First Impressions are Crucial
With the blind date format, first impressions matter. A LOT. You have to get past that first impression to get into a relationship. So Lori insists on looking hot, taking care of your grooming, and following blind date etiquette.
Live Your Message
Honor yourself. Be yourself. Own your stuff. Trying to be someone else is a dead-end street and you’ll eventually end up being discovered anyway.
Disappointments in Love are Speed Bumps, Not Stop Signs
Disappointments in new relationships are part of the game. Don’t be discouraged. Obstacles are a part of the process so stop acting like it’s over if he or she does anythingthat disappoints you. Speed bumps, NOT stop signs.
The Rules Have Changed
Forget what your parents told you. It’s NOT like it used to be. Be open to new relationship dynamics. Don’t worry if he doesn’t open the door or always pay the bill. He could still be your soul mate.
Love is Primal
Love is not an option. We are creatures who need it to survive. Important to understand that love is crucial to our survival as a species. Get out of their fear of commitment and excuses for not working at a relationship and realize that life is way more fulfilling when we have LOVE in it.
Accept that Monogamy is Hard and COMMIT
Sex is primal. We need it. BUT she’s comfortable in what it means to COMMIT to someone so she encourages her clients to accept that it’s all part of the deal of lasting love.
