FIND A HUSBAND IN 90 DAYS Round 2: Tip #2 – Find The One IRL By Attending Social & Networking Events!By Delaina Dixon | October 1, 2018 | Relationships
Hello Divas! My search for love continues. I’ve been turning to top expert in love Fran Greene┬áfor advice on meeting my potential soul mate IRL. Fran shares a lot of tips on how to connect with people offline in her great books, Dating Again with Courage and Confidence, The Flirting Bible and her newest book The Secret Rules of Flirting, where the key to finding love offline is being out and active!
I’m in Los Angeles for a few weeks, and Fran’s tip #2 is perfect while I’m out of town. Check it out below.
Be Bold. Attend Social & Networking Events. I celebrated my birthday yesterday. My good friend mentioned that he had a work event sponsored by Where magazine. I decided what the heck. I slipped into a pretty dress and headed to Rodeo Drive.
The event took place in three parts: Galerie Micahel, a prestigious art gallery in Beverly Hills; hot new fashion retail boutique ba&sh and Gratitude, a plant-based eatery. I started connecting with people as soon as I walked into the event.
One thing I realized is a great smile and a simple question can start a conversation with just about anyone. My pal is a top concierge at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, and I got a chance to talk with a bunch of concierges, the people who connect with the world globally on a daily basis. Putting Fran’s first tip into play, I could be recruiting them as matchmakers for a lifetime!
At Gratitude, I got bold and asked a handsome man at the bar what he was eating. This led to a lovely conversation about food, fitness and Australia, where he was from. While it didn’t lead to a date, it boosted my confidence that I can approach someone and strike up a conversation without fear that I’ll be rejected.
I plan to attend a White Party on Saturday. I’ll know no one, including the woman who I’m going with. And it will be the perfect opportunity to meet new people — and maybe someone special.
