Rhonda cautions us against asking relationship advice from friends and family who aren’t content with their own marriages or relationships. They many not the best source of help to for you. When it comes to finding the ideal mate, consider making yourself a list of who you feel would be best suited for you. Be clear and positive on this matter as it is about your future. Re-evaluate past your past relationship or marriage and admit what didn’t work. Reflect on why and what part you played in it’s failure.
You might want to take a break from dating right away. Clear your mind and take notes on how to improve on yourself, and speak positively about yourself. Surround yourself with friends with positive qualities. As you date, be selective and confident. Don’t settle if you are not ready.. If you have doubts, move on and don’t let others predict your heartbreak.
Rhonda, you give great advice on relationships and dating. After having listened to this podcast, I marvel how the times have changed. Your work has to be invaluable to the women of today.
It is a pleasure to have listened to you and I know your future is bright and you will help many more. You have opened my eyes on how this world has changed this past 50+ years.
Years and years ago, over 50 to be exact… In that day and age when I was dating, I don’t think I ever put that much thought into it. I never made a list. I did date for a few years, but it was nothing very serious. I met my future husband at the age of 20. After we dated for a few months and both knew we loved one another, we got engaged and planned our small wedding. Nothing big – just sensible for our budget.Pretty simple, huh???? Here we are going on 57 years and still love one another.
I guess I”m just one of the lucky ones, but that was a different time and life was simple then.
PS I believe Prince Harry and Meghan will live happily ever after.
