It’s been a month since I announced my 2012 dating challenge. The purpose of the challenge is simple; become proactive when it comes to my dating life!
Since starting the challenge, things have been going well. A number of friends have joined too! Two friends signed up for online dating, something I haven’t done (yet). One of those friends was also set up on a date last week. Others have reached out and asked to be informed when I attend a speed dating event or other events in the city so they can join. Fellow blogger Shivawn also joined the challenge and talks about her experience so far HERE.
As for me, I have been on a few dates and they have gone well. I also emailed a few friends asking them to support me by setting me up. Some have started thinking about who they know that I could possibly meet so I’m optimistic that my friends will come through with potential dates.
The plan next month is to research speed dating events in the city and attend at least one before the summer is over. I also hope to find more diverse events to attend to expand the pool of potential dates. A friend recommended Events and Adventures, a social club for singles. Those of you taking the challenge, this is something to consider!
If you’re looking to activate your dating life, I encourage you to take the challenge. And the challenge isn’t just for women! Men you too can ask your friends for dates, diverse the events you go to, attend speed dating events (there is always a need for more guys to attend), etc to meet women.
I can say that having an open mind has definitely contributed the success of the challenge for me and my friends so far. This challenge will not only help us all meet new people, but it’ll also help us step outside our comfort zone and have fun!
