How to Invite a Man to Become More Emotionally Available


Hi there, Single Lady!

In the last episode, I talked about how to tell if a man is emotionally available because that’s what many women want. (Maybe you can relate because that's what you want too.)

In this episode, we're digging a little deeper and talking about how to invite a man to become more emotionally available to you. It requires some practices that perhaps you haven't thought of. And, (good news!) my husband joins me to give us a little guidance. He's such a great sport!

Something important to keep in mind


So, you want a man who will not only commit to you but also talks to you about how he feels? Emotional availability is a great thing to want in a relationship because it’s what makes it rewarding, deep, and fun. Inviting a man to open up to you can be tricky because research shows that most men are emotionally unavailable and use fewer words every day.

Most men are not as emotionally connected to themselves and others as women are--even...

10 Ways to Tell if a Man is Emotionally Available



When I ask women, “What is the top trait that you want in a man?” many of them say they want a man who is emotionally available.

Maybe, like me, you’ve wondered, “What does that even mean?” Great question!

Emotional availability happens on a couple levels: It happens on the readiness level, meaning he is available and ready--to give his heart away and commit to a specific woman. That’s one type of emotional availability.

The second type of emotional availability happens on the communication level meaning that he can share his feelings and emotions with you. Not that he would be like your best girlfriend, able to talk for hours about his feelings as MOST men are not wired this way, but that he can—when needed—connect with his feelings and when he feels safe, share his feelings with you.

Desiring a man who is emotionally available on both the readiness and communication levels is a good thing—as it’s...

6 Ways to Tell When a Man is Breadcrumbing You


There are many modern dating and relationship terms floating around out there: flea bagging, catch and release, cushioning, gaslighting, and benching, just to name a few.

In this episode, we’re focusing on one common dating behavior: breadcrumbing.

If you wonder if you’re being breadcrumbed, if you’re curious if breadcrumbing has ever happened to you or if you wonder how to recognize it, check out this episode.

It’s empowering because it will help you truly weed out the men who are truly interested in you from the men who aren’t so you can attract that trustworthy, marriage-minded man.

Something important to remember.


You are not alone. If you’ve been breadcrumbed, it’s not about you. It doesn’t mean you’re not valuable or worthy of being loved. It doesn’t mean that you’re rejectable or that no man is ever going to want you.

In fact, breadcrumbing is a well-documented pattern of behavior.

How to Spot an Online Dating Scammer


Hey there, Awesome Single Lady!

In the recent months, I have worked with women to help them spot online dating scams—or what some people call a “romance scam.” 

According to the FTC, a romance scam, is “when a person gets tricked into believing they’re in a romantic relationship with someone they met online.”

In fact, their other half is a cybercriminal using a fake identity to gain enough of their victim’s trust to ask — or blackmail — them for money.

Sounds completely yucky, right? Like who wants to put themselves in a position to even be scammed?

The good news is that no one and I mean no one has to be scammed when they are informed, and they know what to look for. 

You can completely avoid these men online. The women I have coached who have met men online for serious relationships have done that very thing and no one has been duped. 

In this Single Over 30 episode, I share what to look  for...

What to Say to Him When He Just Wants to Hang Out

What do you do—or say—to a man when he says he just wants to hang out? Maybe you’ve been seeing one another exclusively, or you have been dating casually. Regardless, he says he’s not interested, but he still wants to be your bud. How should you handle it? 

I answer that question in this episode.

Define Your Relationship Goals


A first step to decide if you want to hang out with a man or not is to clarify what you want. If you want to be married or be in a committed relationship, be honest with yourself. Write down what you want and ask yourself what you would like your relationship life to look like in in six, twelve, or eighteen months. 


If a man doesn’t want a relationship with you, why would you still be with him, especially if you want a man who wants to be committed? 

Are you being honest with yourself?


Ask yourself: Am I being honest? Sometimes even if we don’t want to just hang out with a man,...

What You Need to Know About Him by the 3rd Date

The third date. Ahhh. . .this is when you might start to feel nervous because you have gone out with him once, twice, and now you’re starting to feel pressure. This is the third date! Maybe you feel as if you need to decide what “this is," where it’s going and how you feel. 

In this Single Over 30 episode, I share what you should know by the end of the third date (whether it’s virtual or in-person) and I share what you don’t need to concern yourself with by the end of the third date.

This episode will definitely take the pressure off as you get to know a man, I promise.  

What You Don’t Need to Worry About


You don’t need to know if he is the one you are looking for, if you want to be with him forever or if he is the most attractive man alive. Those questions can be answered later, further down the line in your relationship. Remember, relationships are built over time.
