Today's tip is about how busy people can still make time to meet someone special. Valentine's Day is coming up. And if you're in a happy a couple that's awesome but many people find themselves in different stages of life and I recently got a letter from a listener. who been on her own for a while? I was trying to figure out about how she could make time for dating our listeners. Husband had died a few years ago and she's now raising her nine year old daughter as a single parent. She says that I'm reading to date. But find it difficult to muster the energy to find someone let alone go out on a date. It seems like online dating is the thing to do now but she says that it. It feels very weird to me since she met her husband. When this wasn't as much of a thing as it is now I'm usually tired from work and extracurricular activities with my daughter and the usual? You'll home duties. She says my commute is at least an hour each way to work. I finally get an hour or so of me time in the evenings after I put my daughter to bed but I'm also trying into read shower and do other focus tasks that I can't do while she's away. So what do you suggest. How can I carve out dating and social time? How much time should I commit commit to these tasks or do I just live life and hope someone falls into my sites? I think this is a great question. Plenty of people with jobs and family responsibilities instabilities would like to meet someone special but because of those jobs and family responsibilities dating can seem like one more thing on the to do list and unlike our listener I got married before online. Dating was as big a thing as it is now but I've talked with a lot of people about how they approach it and I've studied people's time logs to see how it's been incorporated. The good news is that it does make the process of meeting other single people a lot more efficient than in the past setting up first dates at at least is relatively easy. And since that's the case I recommend taking very strategic numbers oriented approach to this project our listener could sign up for a few services that friends recommend and then give herself a target of going on one. I state every two weeks. She could do this right after work or possibly over lunch or coffee so she wouldn't have to worry about finding additional childcare now to be clear most of these dates will be I media at best but the upside is that it's only two hours a month so it's hard to feel like you've wasted too much time if nothing else. Our listeners can try to find humor in the experience or maybe meet people who might be interesting professional connections now. They probably won't all be terrible. Of course listen. This is where the numbers getting comes in. If our listener goes on twenty four I dates in a year. The odds are reasonable. Then she'll have at least a few dates with people. She wouldn't mind nine seeing a second time. No let's say that one in four of those works out great. Well now. She's going on six second dates in a year. What does three of those turned into a third date and one or two of those might be a reasonable date? Now we're getting somewhere. The key is to be consistent with I states until you meet someone who makes you want to not not be consistent about going on for states anymore. Of course online. Dating isn't the only way to go. Our listeners said that some friends had suggested meet up groups and the like and I think it's smart in general to build an active adult social life as a single parent not even necessarily for dating purposes. But just because it's fun the more more people you know who likes similar things to you the broader your network will be and no doubt some of the people in these networks. No people that they'd be willing to set you up with so that helps helps with keeping up the volume of first states to of course all this is slightly more complex as a single parent. Divorced parents who share custody can at least try to schedule their dating lives around the times when their former partners have the kids. our listener is going to need to be more proactive. But I'm guessing that over the last few years of Solo parenting. She's she's made some arrangements with friends neighbors relatives and paid caregivers who can step in for a few hours when she needs and the good news is that in a few years ears her daughter will be able to take care of herself for short periods of time and that will open up a lot more possibilities as for just hoping someone wonderful will appear well. It's always always possible. Meeting someone. Wonderful does involve some amount of luck. But here's the thing was look. We can nudge it along. Someone going on twenty four. I dates dates in a year is far more likely to luck out and meet someone wonderful. Then someone who sticks to the same routine of work and home chores as before. I'm happy to report. Fort heard back from our listener that she was willing to take Basan as the project. A goal of one date. Every two weeks sounds doable. and not so daunting she says. I think I could do do that. And if she does. I'm sure that luck will bend her way. After a while. In the meantime this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.
