Huffington Post’s 3 Tips For Magical Dating After 50 Comes Close, But Misses One Point

An article appearing today in the Huffington Post by Lisa Copeland presented 3 Tips For Creating A Magical Dating Life After 50. The article did well with points one and three, but needed a bit of Magical Matches/Mirror Effect help with the second point.

The first tip was to realize that you as a dater are not alone in feeling like your dating life isn’t going well. The article was absolutely correct; you shouldn’t feel alone. No matter how easy the online dating sites say they make the dating experience, dating is not easy, at least not using the traditional approach.

That poor dating experience dovetails directly into the article’s second tip: It’s time to build your confidence back up.

When it feels like nothing is happening in your dating life, it sometimes makes you feel depressed or has you doubt your attractiveness to men. The number one thing that needs to happen is building your dating confidence back up. In fact, this one thing touches every single aspect of your life.

You’ve got to protect your confidence. The way to do this sounds kind of funny, but it works. I suggest creating a list of the amazing qualities you possess… 10-15 about your physical self, 10-15 about your personality and 10-15 about what you’re good at and interested in.

This advice will certainly help some, but it doesn’t resolve the underlying issue. The reason that daters lose confidence is because of poor dating experiences. One date, two dates, ten dates. She’s not the one. No, he’s not the one. It doesn’t take long for the traditional dater to feel like they could take dating instruction from the back of a shampoo bottle: Wet, shampoo, rinse, repeat. When will prince or princess charming finally show up to wave the wand that magically breaks dating’s evil curse?

Repeated failures at finding a great connection are at the heart of why daters lose confidence, so the only way to genuinely restore confidence is to establish a dating process that provides great dates!

The Mirror Effect and the 6 Steps establishes that distinctly different approach to dating and relationships.

The Mirror Effect says that when we find someone who is extremely alike us, we have the chance to discover a rare, unique connection that can lead to the deepest of loves. The Mirror Effect provides a precise dating target which leads to a better-connected dating experience: you are looking for your mirror.

With a dating target in place, all that remains is to create a process, a set of steps, to hit the target. This is the where the 6 Steps To Finding Your Magical Match Using Online Dating comes in.

Step 1 of the 6 Steps is Mirror Profile which instructs us to write a profile, not on the superficial, but the deepest parts of the heart and soul. Superficial profiles create superficial dating experiences. Deep profiles create deep dating experiences.

Step 2 is Filter. Step 2 says to filter messages for an emphatic response to your Mirror Profile. When a person deeply resonates with your Mirror Profile, they will likely send a surprised, emphatic message. “Your profile described me soooo well. It was amazing! It really touched me…”. The emphatic response signals a great connection, and possibly a mirror connection. Only with an emphatic response do you open the Date Gate and go on a date.

Now that you’ve filtered the online masses down to someone with whom you share a great deal in common, your dating experiences should vastly improve…and so will your confidence! You’ll be surprised by how great dating feels when you’re finding deep connection, and when you pay attention to the rest of the 6 Steps, you’ll be on your way to finding a genuinely magical relationship that will make you feel more alive, more happy, more in love than you ever thought possible.
