What’s Your Dating Trajectory?

– by Wes Colton, Introvert Unbound

trajectoryThanks to our limited social energy and fondness for alone time, the dating life of introverts is unlikely to be as active as that of extroverts. What that means is you’re doing yourself a disservice whenever you compare your situation to that of your chatty, hyper-social friends.

In fact, the only person whose social life you should measure your own against is yours over time!

Obviously, with anything as chaotic as dating, dips and spikes are inevitable. However, it can be helpful to take a moment to honestly answer this question: How is my dating life today compared to a year ago? That’s your dating trajectory.

5 Signs It’s Time to Hire a Dating Coach

– by Regina Hopkins, Introvert Unbound

coachingThe effective presentation of your personality is your ticket to winning at dating. Bottom line: You not only need a sharp and unique style that sets you apart from the crowd, but also the social skills and confidence to display your best self if you want to land more dates or find your partner.

Not sure if the image you’re projecting is going to entice potential dates? Here are 5 signs you could use some help from the pros:

1) You’re re-entering the dating world for the first time in several years

Times have changed since you were last on the hunt for a date. Professional coaches can make sure you’re putting your best possible self out there. They’ll get you up to date with current dating trends, review your social strategies, troubleshoot problem areas, and set you up with a game plan for success.

2) You’re not getting dates on your own

The experts can help you highlight your strengths, skills and unique personal attributes that set you apart. They’ll give you a plethora of ideas and strategies for meeting new people and feeling good about your dating life.

3) You’re not sure what information to include in your online dating profile

Coaches can work with you to figure out what you need to include (and what you don’t).

4) You’re questioning whether your online profile is being overlooked

The pros will ensure that you’re standing out amongst the vast pool of online dating profiles.

5) You’re struggling to “sell” yourself

If you’re not the type to brag, you may struggle to make a case for why you’re a fantastic date and potentially even more for the right person. A dating coach will have no problem boasting about your greatest attributes, successes and personal characteristics that make you unique and attractive to others.

If any of these situations sound familiar to you, it’s time to call in the professionals. Get your FREE 30-minute online or phone consultation with Introvert Unbound coaches Wes Colton, Certified MBTI Practitioner and Regina Hopkins, licensed professional counselor, TODAY!

The Case Against Online Dating

– by Wes Colton, Introvert Unbound

skeleton smart phone-2Obviously, online dating is one of the main ways people meet these days. Many introverts in particular consider these apps and sites to be godsends, making it possible to get dates without leaving the house.

While there’s no question online dating can enhance many people’s dating lives, I’m going to explain why, as a dating coach, I don’t often recommend it to my clients.

(Editor’s note: This article will be primarily discussing heterosexual relationships, as this is my expertise.)

Skipping a Level Isn’t the Same as Beating It

-by Wes Colton, Introvert Unbound

Skipping-levelI get it. You’re not where you want to be in life and you’re overwhelmed by all the hard work it’s going to take to get there.

You’re constantly bombarded with advice from friends, family, coaches, therapists, and gurus: Read books. Socialize more. Lift weights. Take classes. Change your diet. Find a new career. All of these options—many of which aren’t right for you now or contradict one another—no wonder you’re starting to tune them out.

Obviously, you can’t do everything at once. The key is to pick a single area and make that your focus for a while.

Reframing Small Talk

– by Wes Colton, Introvert Unbound

small-talkOne of the biggest introvert pet peeves is “small talk.” That’s usually because deep-delvers such as ourselves don’t want to waste our precious social energy on petty topics like weather or sports scores, but instead connect on issues that matter to us.

This quest for meaning is one of introverts’ most admirable traits. Unfortunately, with most people, it’s not always possible to get into such weighty matters right off the bat. For example, it comes across as a little weird to introduce yourself for the first time to a stranger and then immediately ask, “So, do you think there’s such a thing as pure good and evil?”

When people get together with strangers, they’re sussing one another out. So it’s understandable that a lot of folks are wary about baring their souls to people they don’t know the first thing about. And that’s really what small talk is about.
