How is your love life?
Do you imagine that on a date you need to hide the real you, or pretend to be something different than who you are? And do you feel like the people you are meeting are also being real?
Authentic Dating happens when people show up as who they truly are. It’s essential to meeting a partner that will really work for you.

All our courses and meetings happens via online video conference in small groups. We focus particularly on online dating as we think it’s a game-changer for 21st century love and romance
RECOMMENDED DO’S AND DON’TS
How can you find what you want, if you don’t know
what you want? Know who you are and what you need
Do you enjoy attention and genuine
curiosity? Then return the favor
When you are being you, you will attract
people who want exactly who you are
Confidence is attractive. Know that
you are unique and lovable
Do activities that you enjoy where
people like you are hanging out.
When you are enjoying yourself and being of service,
you are attractive. Have fun with your dates, regardless
of whether they have a “future”
If you don’t drink, don’t hang-out in bars.
If you don’t like smoking, don’t date smokers.
Talk non-stop about yourself, try to impress,
or treat your date like a job interview
Trying to be what other people are looking for,
means they fall for someone you made up
Talking about how bad your past was makes
you look like a victim. Ugh!
It’s a jungle out there. If you don’t immediately
succeed, don’t take it as proof of your inadequacy.
If internet dating is a drag, try something else.
And don’t accept people that you don’t really like, just
because they like you
Authentic Relating and Circling:
What is it, and how does it work with dating and sexuality?
Circling is an outgrowth of the Authentic Relating movement, and an emerging trend in interpersonal effectiveness. It clears past baggage and improves the quality of connection with others, while opening us up to deep listening of another’s experience. Circling has the capacity to get us into spaces of deep-connection quickly, delivering rapid transformation and the sense of being heard and understood. Authentic Relating skills are extremely effective in all relationships, but are particularly important in sexual and romantic partnerships.
In this video, excerpted from a recent Introduction to Authentic Dating, Marco and Rebekah speak about this powerful practice as it applies to dating and sexuality.
