Maria is exactly where she’s supposed to be at this point: kick-ass profile, shiny new photos, determined to make this a success, and open to learning new ways to approach her love life. I’ll let here take it from here:
My profile is finally up and running on Match.com!! In my last coaching call with Evan, we went over my profile and pictures to make sure everything was ready to go. He showed me how to use “reverse match” to be able to see people that are looking for me. This option matches me with men that meet my criteria, like distance, religion and age. Evan told me to consider going higher on the age group that I was looking for to expand my options. I have opted for men between the ages of 47-57. He asked me why those numbers? Hmmm….because I’m 54 years young. I take good care of myself and don’t want to go out with an old man! He made two important points: you don’t have to marry the 60-year old man, or kiss him or go out with him, if you don’t like the picture. (He’s right!) Then, he gave me a great analogy: If God shows up at your door with a man as a gift for you and tells you that this man is going to make you happy, would you accept him? I said YES! Then God said, there is only one thing….he is 60 years old, will you still take him? Of course!
Looking at the big picture, what I really want is a man that takes good care of himself, like I do, no matter if he is 47 or 65 years old.
Now that everything is up and running, my homework is to log in everyday for at least half an hour and start creating a list of 30-40 favorites. And, no, I don’t have to write to all 40 of them at the same time! Only two to three at a time. At the present, I’ve already received a couple of emails but I haven’t replied yet. Next time I’ll tell you about it…. What I can tell you now is how wonderful it is to have Evan walking me through the process.
Thank you for following my journey and I hope it helps you with yours.
