I attended the free teleseminar for “Navigating in Today’s NEW World of Dating: A Conscious Approach to Internet Dating, Mobile Dating, Speed Dating and the First Dates they Create” presented by Roy Biancalana. He is a dating coach and author of “A Drink with Legs”.

His principals for dating he covered in the seminar:

You are single for a reason. Can you and are you willing to open your heart to someone? That’s a very good point. He says when you start to date it will open up your issues and problems. This is what I discuss in the first chapter of my book, “10 Rules to Survive the Dating Jungle”. You have to first heal all your wounds before going out into the dating jungle. Otherwise getting into a relationship is going to exaggerate these issues unless you deal with them first.

Get yourself together. Meaning find your passion, work on yourself and getting yourself a life other than just finding someone to be with. Find out what your life’s purpose is and where you are going. Good men are looking for radiant women who have dealt with their emotional baggage.

Be pickier during internet dating. I couldn’t agree more. The quality of people on internet dating websites is mostly sub-par. You need to weed them out to who only meets your top 5%.  I go into rules for this in my new book, “10 Rules to Survive the Internet Dating Jungle.”

Be clear on what you want in a relationship, keep the end in mind. Do you want marriage, a fling, a friend? Know what you want so you can find someone who wants the same things.

Speed Dating Tips. Relax and be yourself. Ask authentic questions about the other person. This is also true I believe when you are internet dating as well. This is similar to my rule nine of “10 Rules to Survive the Dating Jungle”.

Be mindful of the photos you put on dating sites. Very true, most of the photos on dating websites are awful. People really need the 4-11 on photos. It’s amazing what people think are web appropriate.

Create a profile that accurately describes what you are looking for. First lead with what type of relationship you want. That weeds out the heard of most people looking at your profile.

Overall I pretty much agree with everything he went over in the seminar. It’s everything I developed in my rules and what are going to be within the rules of my internet dating book. It’s good to know someone of the opposite sex agrees with my rules. It seems he has been through a lot of the same dating challenges that I have. It was a very good informative seminar. I would definitely suggest it to anyone who has thought of attending in the past.

I was surprised though during the Q and A portion a woman asked the question of doing background checks on guys from the internet. Both presenters were pretty much tongue tied and didn’t know how to answer the question. It was tearing me part not being able to say anything since I dedicated an entire chapter in my book to be safe, research your dates. Maybe men don’t think about this topic as much, yet us as woman always need to keep this in mind.

The end of the teleseminar when they interviewed a speed dating pre-dating coordinator, wasn’t as informative. It was more painful than anything else. I started zoning out during that portion. I would suggest to the pre-dating company to leave that out during the next ones. Or maybe they should give the coordinator the questions before-hand so their coordinator can be prepared on how to answer them.
