Who’s your Valentine?

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the usual dinner-and box of chocolate and or flowers will certainly get the job done this year. But this is your chance to prove your love and show your Valentine just how special they are. In other words, Valentine’s Day calls for something truly elevated, step up your game! 

To help you out, we rounded up some inventive, unforgettable, heart-throbbing date ideas in the Los Angeles area (could apply in other area’s, google idea for similar places to go).

Escape Room 

Looking for a fun and unique activity for your Valentine’s day date? Escape Room LA is a one-of-a-kind interactive adventure that everyone will love! There’s an Escape Room in LA, clues are tricky, but no special skills or knowledge is required. It’s a Fun Date Night! I’ve done it. 

Shopping spree anyone?   

Find fun, unique stores, stores that may tell a story —shop locally, I love this fun store on Melrose Ave www.newprofanity.com – funny place to take a date – deep discussions required. Keep strolling together down Melrose Ave or a nice walk through Laguna Beach local shops, if you dare hit the malls. Decide on a set amount of money. You each have 30 minutes to buy something for each other. Whomever picks the best gift wins. 

Dance to jazz like it’s the Roaring Twenties 

Hit up a local hot Jazz club, make a ’20s-themed evening out of it, time for fun dress up. Gentleman get the chance to bust out your three-piece suits and swanky hats. Ladies get to break out their glitter flapper dresses, make a night of it. Order old fashion drinks and cuddle up to a great night of music and fun. www.catalinajazzclub.com

Make your own art and sip

Though every piece of art is ostensibly based off the same initial artwork, the results are generally wildly different, and quite entertaining.This a great opportunity for you to chat, laugh and get creative with your Valentine’s Day Date.

Break-Up…Now What?

Reading about break-ups on a matchmaker blog may seem a bit ironic because we’re here to get people into relationships, not OUT of them. Well, the fact is that most of us have suffered a break up or two in our lives. Going through the end of a relationship can be devastating.

Then the time comes a time when the dust begins to settle and the possibility of finding a new match doesn’t seem as scary as say, polar bearing  So what’s the next step after a break-up?

The most important step before you get serious about dating again is to put on the oxygen mask. That means that you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of someone else. If you are still resentful about your ex, feeling insecure about your ability to attract a partner, have a difficult time trusting, etc., take the steps to move past your anger and doubt.  Beyond reading self-help books and therapy, there are things you can do to distract yourself from the pain of being single again and re-discover a wiser and more fulfilled version of yourself. Here are a few to get you excited about finding love (and you will!):

Be a Good Samaritan-Volunteering is a wonderful outlet because helping others helps to build your sense of self-value and enables you to open your heart.  Also, you may meet someone who is just as passionate about helping others-and that is hot. 

Learn Something New-If you’ve always wished you learned to tango, brushed up on your Spanish, or that you were a better cook, then now is the time to do it. Not only will you fill up the space you once spent with your partner, your confidence will soar and you’ll cross an item off your bucket list. Again, you open yourself to potentially meeting other quality singles by expanding your social life.

Improve your surroundings-Give your bedroom a sexy makeover (luxurious sheets, anyone?), de-clutter and get organized (chuck that ugly painting your ex loved!), re-arrange your furniture, or plant a garden.  Investing inyour environment eases loneliness and motivates you to share it with someone new.

Refresh your wardrobe-You are going to need some new date clothes for sure, and it’s likely your look has gotten a little stale or styles have changed since your last rodeo. For the love of God, get rid of your old underwear and socks (bras too, ladies!), and spoil yourself with new ones that you won’t mind showing off. And yes, there is such a thing as sexy socks.

 

Everyone is different when it comes to finding the best way to meet singles, and depending on your circumstances, things may have changed dramatically on the dating scene since you were last single. Online dating wasn’t around 20 years ago! You may be a few years out of college and scoping out hotties at a toga party or a bar crawl isn’t exactly your speed these days. The thing is, there are smarter ways to find your match than online dating, or standing around awkwardly at a bar. You can try a fun Single’s Partyor have an expert matchmaker go to work finding matches that are chosen  just for you.

You’ve read this far and you should be feeling stoked about who will be lucky enough to benefit from your mad cooking skills and play footsie with those sexy socks-but please, take them off before you hit those fancy new sheets!

Passion not perfection!

As a matchmaker and date scout, I interview A LOT of women and talk about the types of single men they would like to date.  One of the first qualities they desire in a partner is passion, not physical passion (well, that’s important too!), but passion for life itself. Being a single man, a successful career and taking care of your physical appearance are important; but when women describe men they’ve found irresistible the quality that made them fall head over heels was that he was interesting and had elements of his life outside of work and family that set him apart from other men.

You don’t have to compete in triathlons or have climbed Mt Kilimanjaro to show that you have a zest for life. Instead you may dedicate your free time to charity work or maybe you are really proud of all the work you’ve done growing a vegetable garden.  Any dating coach and professional matchmaker will tell you that having a multifaceted life is not only healthy for your personal fulfillment, but is also vital and necessary in attracting an extraordinary partner.

So what are you to do if you don’t have any interests that really excite you? Short answer: Find some stat! There are a number of reasons that you haven’t prioritized your hobbies and interests.  Don’t let your busy work and social life stand in your way.  Think about all the things you have wanted to learn more about or try. Start small by going to a museum lecture or join an organization that hosts weekly activities. This will not only inspire you, but you will become more enthused about your new experiences and will have some fun and entertaining stories to share on your dates!
