SMF: How does one make dating a priority?
Bari: As with any goal we want to achieve in life, setting goals and investing consistent time and energy towards that goal is critical to achieving success. Wishing and hoping won’t cut it. Rather, making a plan and committing to it will keep you positive, motivated and excited about dating. I coach my clients to create a Dating Plan Of Action that is consistent with their vision, a plan that works with their already busy schedules. Creating the plan involves looking at their calendar at the beginning of each month, allotting blocks of time, and filling in those blocks of time with dating – related activities such as searching on dating sites, requesting introductions, making phone calls, sending emails and going on coffee dates. By making dating a priority, one is able to commit to a plan that is balanced and consistent with their vision to find their future spouse. And by doing so, the day will come that they meet the right one—and when they meet that person, they will know it.
