February 2020 – This Just In…
MONTHLY NEWSLETTER: Here's what's happening Behind The Scenes at Dashing Date!
This month you’re going to: RE-WRITE YOUR LOVE STORY!
Love, loss, heartache, heartbreak – we’ve all been there. And while there were lessons to be learned, we too often let our past define our future. Well, guess what? It doesn’t have to.
This month your challenge is to break free from all that’s been subconsciously holding you back and re-write the love story that you actually deserve.
So what does your Love Story look like? Carve out some time for yourself, grab a pen and paper (or your phone) and get ready to turn a new page. The key is to get excited about it, to let your mind take you to places you haven’t been to in years and not hold back! Everything you once dreamed that love could be, can still be.
Here are a few things that can help:
1. Focus on feelings, not things
Your love story should primarily be about how you want to feel, not about the things you’re looking for in a partner. While the latter is important, and you can throw a few things in there, the feelings part should take priority. Ask yourself “How will I feel when this person comes into my life?”. Loved, appreciated, respected, trusting, happy, inspired? Dive deep and make it your own.
2. Don’t forget what you bring to the table
Remember that your love story is also about how you make someone else feel, and the impact this story has on them too. Make a list of what makes you special, what you’re most proud of, and what you have to offer. You deserve a great love story – and this list will help you see why!
3. Create an anchor
Come up with an inspiring phrase that keeps you grounded when your love story doesn’t go exactly as planned. Think of something short and sweet but strong and empowering! Once you have it, make it part of your daily routine. Write it down in the morning or at night. Make it the background on your phone or computer screen. Tape a sign to your bathroom mirror. Words are powerful and how you speak to yourself strongly influences your actions.
We wish it was as simple as snapping your fingers but it does take some work. The more you put into it, the closer it gets to feeling easy. And finally, remember, your new love story can be everything you want and more. Dream big, put out the right energy and believe!

LAST MONTH'S EVENT REVIEWS
“Dashing Date is a very well organized entity. It offers a very pleasant alternative to internet dating. Even if you don’t find your ‘match’ on a particular evening, Dashing Date makes speed-dating a lot of fun..” – Blake, Ottawa
“Overall very speed-pleasant date night. Our host was very welcoming and greeted every guest upon arrival. Food was yummy. The men were all awesome! Thanks to Dashing date for taking care of people’s hearts.” – Iyla, Ottawa
“Just want to say I was very impressed by the event, the fact there was a sheep of openers, the quality attendees, and just the overall organization of the event. I did a speed dating event a year and a half ago through another company and was very turned off the whole experience and this was a much more positive experience.” – Marie – Toronto
