Today’s post is on a trend I noticed in my dating. I am the reigning queen of first dates. Sigh. Not a happy event I assure you. I seem to go on dozens of first dates with very little repeats. In fact, I can count on two hands the number of guys I’ve seen more than once. What’s with that? Again that elusive thing called chemistry I guess. In fact, it happened again today, I struck out.
I’m a master NLP practitioner. NLP stands for neuro linguistic programming, basically it’s an efficient way of enhancing communication. Last night a bunch of NLP practitioners got together to practice. I was a client and brought up my issue with being the queen of first dates and how much effort I put into getting myself out there and not knowing why things don’t click. The session was awesome! We did a reframe by looking at it as a positive in terms of experience. Plus I worked on some positive imagery for when I do go on dates, so I stay focused, centered and grounded. All in all the experience was very positive.
I used the tools today, took some deep breaths before my date and felt everything I wanted to feel going in. I may have struck out but my approach has definitely changed for the better. NLP rocks!
