It’s time to “Be the Chooser” and take control of your love life.
“Dating”? I’m pretty sure I just heard a collective groan from the introverts of the dating world. It’s OK! You are not alone. And here’s another statement that may make you gasp a little. Ready? Dating can be enjoyable if you have the right attitude! I know – I’m shocked too! Just thinking about going on a date can be exhausting for an introvert. Once the date is made, you start arguing in your mind about why you should just cancel it and curl up on the couch to watch your favorite show instead – right? The good news is that there is a secret to dating that makes it possible to put “enjoyable” and “dating” in the same sentence: You are the chooser – plain and simple. Just as with everything else in life, you create your reality in dating. You choose who you want to go out with and you choose if you want to continue to see this person. Take a moment to think about how you think about a first date. What goes through your mind? “I hope they like me.” “I’m so nervous.” “What if I say something embarrassing?” …and on and on with the self-conscious thoughts. With a well-formed dating plan, those won’t be the questions that come to mind. Yes, I said “plan.” That’s not a word you’d typically hear with dating, but as a SoulMate Coach, I can tell you it makes all the difference for my clients.

Finding a way to make date night special if you’re on a tight budget or can’t find a babysitter can be tough. But even a low-key date night can be extra sexy, and it doesn’t take a whole lot of effort – it just takes the right food! What are we talking about? Aphrodisiacs! Now, obviously simply eating “sexy” foods isn’t necessarily going to lead to the bedroom. But they can add a little bit of extra fun to your night – especially if you work on the meal plan and cooking together. Try any of the following foods for your next at-home date night to get your blood pumping, your heart racing, and your partner ready for an extra fun dessert. Oysters. A classic aphrodisiac. They contain both zinc (which is linked to a higher sex drive) and specific amino acids that aid in the production of sex hormones. Chocolate. Ever wonder why we give our lovers boxes of chocolate on Valentine’s Day? Chocolate isn’t only a delicious treat, it helps to put your partner in a good mood. Dark chocolate specifically is known to trigger dopamine, a chemical in the brain that invokes feelings of pleasure. Avocado. Not only are avocados healthy and full of good fats, they’re also a great aphrodisiac. Add them to your meal for some Vitamin E, which keeps you feeling young and energized. Chai Tea. Coffee is an aphrodisiac, but you want to feel sexy – not wired. Chai tea is a great alternative that will let you
