Free Live Webinar: Who Are You Dating? Learning About Our Patterns

(Please note: This free live webinar will be recorded and a copy made available to all who register.)

So, who have you been hanging out with lately?

Think about the last person you dated. Have you been dating the same unhealthy type each and every time only packaged a little differently?

Have you thought that this time it looks promising, only to be surprised when it didn’t work out again?

Have you read every article you can find online about what you should look for next when choosing a date? It can be cumbersome to keep everything in mind:

The 10 Qualities Your Next Boyfriend/Girlfriend Should Have  

Look for These 7 Signs on Your First Date to See If He or She Is Interested!


We want what’s best for our heart. We will try so hard to follow “The Rules” or advice from friends, TV shows, etc., as to how to avoid pitfalls in our quest to find Ms. or Mr. Right. But, more often than not, we settle and then wonder how it happened yet again.

Yes, you might be well-read about narcissists, players, and other toxic partners, but it is very different in real life, as you know. The excitement, fear and hope of the moment can influence how you evaluate who is sitting across from you. We often see what we are looking for. The mind works how we program it to.

Finally, I know, you might be saying, “Hey, I have had a solid family life. I have friends. I’m strict. No one can fool me.” Fair enough.

However, we are human. We have tough times. We can feel not good enough at times. We can be vulnerable because of outside circumstances.

It’s good to have actual tools that you understand and can apply, not just memorize.

Three Take-Aways from this Webinar:

  1. Viewers will learn to examine choices in dating.
  2. Develop their ability to spot unhealthy trends in their dating patterns.
  3. Begin to discover how these patterns can be traced back to learned family “scripts”.
