Love & Happiness Advice for Single Parents

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

I’ve been interviewed a number of times lately for a few different kinds of stories, but one I come back to pretty often: dating, love and happiness advice for single moms and dads—some of the hardest working people in life-business. Here is some of my love, happiness and dating advice for parents going it alone.

1: How to Deal with Your Ex’s New Partner

First, some advice for single moms dealing with her ex’s new partner that appeared on Yahoo News. The wonderfully honest story, by writer Chrissi Coppa, was called Tom Brady’s Ex Deserves Praise for her Gracious Co-Parenting Tweet, and I offered my insight on what it meant that Bridget Moynahan tweeted a congratulations to the Patriots following their win, and what that meant for her son and their family.

2. How to Date as a Single Parent

I also offered some of my dating tips for single parents for a piece that appeared in Parenting.com and CNN.com among others.

I wish I could give a free copy of Meeting Your Half-Orange to every last single mom or single dad in the country, because I truly believe that it could help shift how they feel in a meaningful way.

The way I see it, when you are feeling overwhelmed and down on yourself or your circumstances—which is so often the case with single parents who don’t have even .001 second to think about themselves because they are so focused on their child/children—the best thing you can do for yourself emotionally is find a way to adjust your perspective and feelings so that you can get through each day in a happier place. The more in control, positive, hopeful and happy you feel, the better a person, a parent and a provider you can be.

The Daily News on Half-Oranges: “Grab It!”

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

It was such a sweet treat to see that the New York City newspaper The Daily News found and featured my little App at the end of summer! App Momma is so darn proud. Here is the Sunday edition of the paper with my iPhone App Half-Orange Optimisms, listed under the “Grab it!” section of the App reviews.

“We all need pick-me-ups now and then,” the writer says in her review, “especially if we’re prepping to put ourselves out there.” She’s right. So if you have an iPhone and could use a pep talk in your pocket, give the App a go and see what you think!

Last Call for My Love Help Telechat!

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Today’s the day for the FREE Girls’ Night In Telechat with Kira Sabin & YourTango! Have you signed up yet? Do yourself a big dating favor, and sign up now. The one-hour call at 9 p.m. EST (6 p.m. Pacific) will get you rolling toward your own half-orange in a big bold way!

We’ll talk about:

1. How the science behind the optimism will change your life. Thinking positively feels great, but every once in a while, you can get to the place I once reached: “What the hell’s the point? I’ve been cheery about this whole dating thing and it’s gotten me nothing. I give up!” Well, thanks to the recent scientific discovery of neuroplasticity, we now know that our thoughts have a mind-changing effect on the neural activity and structure of our emotional brains. I’ll explain how this works, so you won’t think “What’s the point?” again. Instead, you’ll be driven to change your thoughts to change your dating life forever.

2. How to specifically “choose your orange seed.” You want an awesomely wonderful relationship. But are you asking for it in the right way? I’ll tell you how you might be asking for your right relationship in the wrong way, and exactly how to ask for what you truly want and feel empowered to get it.

3.  How to create the “orange buzz.” Feeling positive is one thing. But working up an emotionally charged orange buzz to “feed your seed”—that’s what’s going to turn you into a knock-‘em-dead relationship magnet. The orange buzz is the magic behind attracting your other half. When you learn how to create your orange buzz, you’ll literally become the relaxed, happy, glowing, confident person now that you want to feel in your dream relationship later. In fact, you’ll be so buzzing, your friends will ask, “What’sdifferent about you?” Well, what’s different is that you’ll feel more amazing about yourself and your future relationship than you ever have before—and that’s exactly what’s going to naturally draw the right person straight to you. So let’s get buzzing!

4. …and more!

And if you sign up NOW, you’ll be eligible to win FREE gifts from Bath and Body Works, and take a big step toward the love of your life!
