I’m Lea-Marie, a professional date consultant and engagement proposal planner. With over 10years of event planning experience and a lifetime of trial and error in the love department I’m going to use my own romantic experiences, dating misadventures, and tricks of the trade to hopefully help all you lovers out there get one step closer to finding your match.
Now many of us are still looking for Love. Yes I type Love with a capital “L” because it’s significant and a force all its own. We as human beings actively seek it out from birth. Our natural instincts tell us that there is someone out there who sees us more clearly than anyone else. However, as we get older and our hearts are wounded from hurt and disappointment our idea of Love becomes skewed. What we deserve and what we want turn into shields and walls. We are looking for “Love” but doing so in the wrong places. I know….now you can’t get Waylon Jennings song out of your head! But really listen to what the lyrics are saying.
LOOKIN FOR LOVE- Waylon Jennings
I’ve spent a lifetime looking for you Single bars and good time lovers, never true Playing a fools game, hoping to win Telling those sweet lies and losing again. I was looking for love in all the wrong places Looking for love in too many faces
Justin Garcia, a professor in the department of gender studies at Indiana University and a researcher at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction has found that while there are exceptions to ever rule, cities with smaller populations or less dating options seem to have the highest couples rating.
“Sometimes when you’re in a big city and there are thousands and thousands of people you might find attractive, it becomes so overwhelming that you don’t engage in the dating culture at all,” he says.
Which I believe can be true but you also need to include opportunity into the equation. Where are you looking? There was a study done on the amount of misconnections posted on craigslist and it found that many of these missed opportunities were at the local gas station and I’m sorry to say as a woman from the south that there where a predominant amount of misconnections at the local Walmart for most of the southern states. Really…? This is where we are missing our possible match; at gas stations and super stores? Come on people, we can do better than that! Before you can find the love you are truly looking for you must understand and provide personal value. Know yourself, learn who you are as a person and what makes you special. What is it that you like to do? Where do you like to spend your free time? To find a quality partner you need to be a quality person. Try to do something every day that will help you gain value, and I guarantee that you will you will be in the right place at the right time and start attracting the love that you want.
