Does Dating Spook You?

Are you tired of meeting boo-friends and ghoul-friends online? I can assure you millions of single people are exhausted, as a result of today's modern dating games. Recall, HALF of the adult population in South Florida and the Treasure Coast is single/divorced or widowed. Fortunately, daily in our offices, we hear exciting stories of new found love at all ages, and we know we are doing something to cure the problem. During the summer season, we had so many #RDcouples get married and engaged, it warmed our hearts. In recent days, as we kicked of the Fall Season 2018, our phones have been ringing off the hook with new clients who want to start their own "revolution of love" before the holiday season begins. The holidays make people realize how wonderful it is to have ONE SPECIAL person by your side and in your corner. There is no need to be alone in a spooky world when all you have to do is treat yourself to some...change. Our clients are just like you and they have one thing in common: they are not terrified by real love and you shouldn't be either! Despite the fact that research shows that marriage rates are on the decline and divorce is on the rise, there is still hope for you. In other words, don't let the risks of social media, online dating, and the bar scene drive you to become a "relationship outlaw."
Here are some surefire ways to avoid becoming a LOVE Zombie:
1. Beware of "keyboard warriors" and online dating repeat offenders. Heed the "Texting Trap." Men are asking women out via text, women are breaking up with men via text, and high voltage words are exchanged that would have NEVER been said in person because people have false confidence when texting. Many singles have "textationships" in lieu of "relationships." For some, cyber life is replacing real life. "E- Love" is actually being mistaken for real love and it is so impersonal, isn't it? I think it's flat out cowardly.
2. At Revolution Dating, we encourage our clients to look beyond "exterior image” and we encourage everyone to get to know one another. Romance (that will last) will follow suit if it is the right person. We have so many new and attractive people joining our club daily...and there is a BIG power in numbers. We are entering our busiest season of the year right now. No one wants to spend the holidays alone and before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here...then the BIG holidays...than New Years Eve 2018! The time to act is now, friends (not tomorrow).
3. In contrast to other (wannabee) dating clubs and online dating sites, Revolution Dating is no assembly line just spitting out single people and letting them fend for themselves. In fact, that would be counter-revolutionary. We should all be on a mission to unite, bond, and connect. WE are a part of the Love Movement. WE are not afraid and you shouldn't be either. Be like US and #BeTheChange you seek in your life. If you are not moving and grooving--you are not living to your full potential. If you are not living and loving, you are dying. Sorry to be so blunt, but don't be a Love Zombie!
4. Increase your odds of finding quality people to date, and avoid looking for love in all the wrong places. Don't sit home gun-shy because you were hurt before. The more we love each other, the more love we will receive. The more we argue and condemn, the more negativity we will receive from the Universe (FACT). If we don't apply to the school of love now, it will be too late soon and YOU are not getting any younger. None of us are...darn it! As we say in my office: Let love rule! Live in the moment. Keep you words sweet, because you may be eating them soon...sweetness in life and love will get you everywhere...especially in the dating world!
In conclusion, treat yourself this month. Don't settle for a boo-friend or a ghoul-friend when you can find a better partner. Save time, money, headache, and heartache by dating the right people at the right time! The "scariest" part is making the first phone call to our office. Luckily, loving agents are standing by to help YOU (see some of us in the Around Town Section). We look forward to seeing many of you movers and shakers at our 12th Annual Halloween Gala! It's going to be a revolutionary party! We urge you to reserve your place in the club now, so you can make the all-inclusive event. It's time to leave your comfort zone.
Happy Halloween to you all and do reserve your place in the club today while there is still space! We accept a limited number of new clients per month.
