Planning Fun and Fabulous First Dates cloud

Planning Fun and Fabulous First Dates

By Ronnie Joy, The Midlife Dating Coach, August 25, 2016

“The Three Tomatoes – The Insider’s Guide for Women who Aren’t Kids.”

Want to try something other than the usual coffee date? Want to upgrade your first date? Do something fun and interesting and have a worthwhile experience – even if he ends up not being second date worthy!

What will you look back on after six months of online dating? Companionship for a series of interesting activities you enjoyed or six months of meeting at coffee shops? Each offers you the chance to meet men, but only one gives you the opportunity of having interesting activities to build good memories on and an optimistic attitude about future dates.

You’ve screened and researched the men. Now it’s time to upgrade your first date!

Choose an interesting activity that you enjoy but might resist doing if you didn’t have a companion.

Offer to “go Dutch.” Freeing the man from paying for everything on your first date can create more activity opportunities.

Offer a choice of two or three activities for the first date. Be flexible to whichever one he wants. Most men will be thrilled that a terrific woman has taken the time and trouble to find something fun to do and then takes the initiative to invite him to join her. Taking this approach separates you from the rest of the dating pool. You’ll establish yourself as a creative, enjoyable companion. Read more here.

Getting back in the dating saddle and finding lasting love.png

Get Back in the Dating Saddle and Find Lasting Love

by Ronnie Joy, The Midlife Dating Coach  May 19, 2016

“The Three Tomatoes – The Insider’s Guide for Women who Aren’t Kids.”

For a woman in midlife, dating again can feel vulnerable, even scary. After my marriage of 26 years ended in divorce, I knew I still wanted to share my life with someone special. I was on my own for the first time and had no clue what dating was supposed to be like. I had no one to answer my questions about how to date again. I ended up dating badly! I later became a certified life coach and recognized that I was repeating certain dating behaviors and it was time to develop new strategies for finding my mate. I was on a mission to find my man! I developed successful strategies and they worked!  I met and married, Jack, the love of my life.

Did I need to get out of my comfort zone to find my love? Hell, yeah! I was willing to accept my discomfort to achieve my dream of finding my perfect partner.

I help women get out of their comfort zone. When they get clear on their intention, they are in a position to do what it takes to call in love. And they do!

This can work for you, too. Here are tips to break out of your comfort zone and have dating success.

She's Getting Married!!

Hi Ronnie, 

“…Hope all is well with you and that your business and personal life are going well.  And thank you for 'Dating in the Wild!'

I'm excited to tell you that the man I met through the friend, that I invited to the Symphony, has proposed and we are engaged to get married on June 25th!  I have two sons, 20 and 24, and he has a son aged 22. All three are happy for us. My three sisters and two brothers-in-laws are flying out for the wedding. They tell me this is the happiest they've ever seen me in my life!... focusing on myself first made all the difference… it allowed me to relax, and present a happy, confident, strong, and fun side to myself.  

Excerpt from my email to you below from last July:

I spoke with a male friend of mine asking a suggestion of who I might invite to the Symphony last week. He gave me the phone number of his friend who I'd met on a couple of times at gatherings. We had a fantastic evening. He then reciprocated by inviting me to a 3rd of July invite with friends. We shall see where the relationship goes :-)” Carol C.

Loves How I Pretty Up


How much fun it was to have you come over and help me Finally Get Rid of the clothes that don't actually flatter me (I'm not a pack rat, I just didn't honestly have a fashion sense!) - and how empowering it was to go shopping that one time, and now I'm no longer intimidated to go on my own.... But.... I Just Gotta Capture for other doubting folks, this fashion stuff Works from the inside out! I felt different when I started wearing clothes that actually "perked me up!" I was happier, even on the funky, weird-o dates I went on. At least I was happy inside me, which is what counts most of all! And then…I met J. Yup, I was wearing a very adorable short summer dress at the time, Not At All what I would've worn a few months prior!! ;-)
We both knew there was chemistry…We continued to see each other as friends (really! no kissing - can you believe it, at our age?!), and 2 months later, we took it to the next level. And later, J. said to me how much he loved what I wore on our first date, and how beautifully I "pretty up!" (his words for dress up). He so enjoys seeing the fun I have when I put a few extra accessories together (in ways I Never Would've have known before Ronnie Joy!))
- Now, 6 months later, I continue to deepen my awe and appreciation about being "later in life" with this deliciously sweet, tender, present man, who loves how I "pretty up!" ;-)
