Pop-Up 16: Dating is Intentional

Show Notes

Hey, Lovebugs! Join me for an episode centered around womanhood, dating, and the power of intention. Today, Alexandra shares three dating examples where she’s applied a new level of intention to gain better results and safeguard from premature investment. In it, she breaks down her intention, strategy, and outcome. 

Example No. 1: Alexandra sets clear boundaries, makes the most of her time, and manages tardiness. We discuss the importance of establishing your dating standards and boundaries in advance, protecting yourself from unnecessary disappointments.

Example No. 2: Alexandra builds pre-date rapport, adjusting to a new energy (from No. 1) and balances excitement and anticipation. (Spoiler alert: Alexandra’s got a second date lined up!)

Example No. 3: Alexandra previews her strategy, adjusting from lessons learned in her first two dating examples. She adds playful interaction that builds anticipation, and I share insights on cultivating excitement between dates.

Happy Women’s History Month, and happy listening! See you for season 4, and remember that if you have a Secret Story you want to share with me, I invite you to drop your truth for the next Secret Story episode!
