Let me tell you a secret.

The key to successful dating is within you.

You might be frustrated and hardened from past dating experiences and relationships, but. . . .

If you want to really get out there and Be The One to Find The One, you’ve got to let your guard down and become vulnerable.

Vulnerable?  Why would I want to be vulnerable with someone I barely know?  How can I trust him or her? 

That’s what a lot of singles in my coaching programs ask when we discuss vulnerability.

Here’s the deal. . .

The whole point of dating is to discover a powerful connection and to feel loved and understood by another.

And trust me, I totally understand how negative experiences from the past can cause you to erect walls to protect yourself, but. . . .

You’re not going to find real love–amazing, soul-satisfying, lifetime love–if you’re not letting yourself be vulnerable enough to open up to connecting with the people you’re dating.

I want you to watch Brene Brown’s “The Power of Vulnerability” because her fascinating, funny, profound, and eye-opening talk will help you understand vulnerability in a new way.  She’ll help you shed old misconceptions about how vulnerability is a form of weakness and show you the true power of inner openness.
