Wayland, MA, December 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Teenagers can’t wait for their first date. It’s exhilarating and new. They dream of it, and gossip with friends about what they’ll wear (if a girl). Maybe they clean out the car and buy a new pair of jeans or baseball cap (if a guy). All in all, dating at sixteen is an exciting adventure, full of promise, unfettered by a complicated past.
Project into the future about thirty or forty years, and the word ‘dating’ probably elicits very different emotions and reactions. At mid-life, dating can bring excitement, but often it’s fraught with confusion and anxiety, especially if the person hasn’t dated for a while or has suffered a broken heart. But in a triumph of hope over experience, many people start the New Year with ‘getting out there again’ as one of their resolutions.
At One Journey Consulting, a coaching and consulting practice in Wayland dedicated to helping individuals through the journey of divorce, dating is also on the mind of Renee Cooper, coach and co-founder of the practice. A veteran of divorce and re-entry into the dating scene, Ms. Cooper knows first-hand the trials -- and joys -- of navigating the social scene again. And like her supportive series on healing from divorce, she’s using her experience to help others during the upcoming Dare to Date…Again one-day workshop.
Says Cooper: “We created this program because of what we saw our clients experiencing after coming through a divorce. Almost everyone had the same concerns: How do I know if I’m ready to date? What about this internet dating? Is it safe? What are the new “dating rules”? And probably the one we hear most: How do I avoid repeating the same mistakes from my last relationship? The participants in this workshop have a chance to do some deep reflection on their personal readiness. We also provide lots of useful “tips and techniques” for getting out there again.”
Dare to Date…Again will be held on Saturday, January 16 in Wayland -- just in time to jumpstart New Year’s resolutions to find that desired relationship. More information can be found at www.OneJourneyConsulting.com.
