Being a hypnotherapist, I often get strange questions from all walks of life.
Since becoming a mom, I’ve shed a lot of insecurity, and my new outlook is serving me well in my dating life.I wanted to get the really big deal breakers about myself out on the table so that I wouldn’t have to awkwardly or defensively say them out loud on a first date.I also wanted to weed out the men who wouldn’t be cool with those things, and I wanted to demonstrate that I have a sense of humor.I was dying to see who was using it in the small southern town I live in now. But then I got some messages from guys I would actually consider dating.
If nothing else, it would just be funny to see if there was anyone I knew. One guy, I’ll call him “Jim,” was attractive, a few years older than me, and had never been married before.
Again, we chatted a long time until finally I asked him out. When I lived in New York, guys never hesitated to ask me out.
