You will return to dating with new enthusiasm (and probably some good stories!).”My response: While the thought of ‘not putting myself out there’ romantically for that amount of time makes me nervous that I’m running out of time, I understand that frankly, a timeline is all in my head.Karen Garvey says : “Everything in life is created by energy, the energy of thoughts, feelings and actions of your specific energy will be reflected back to you through your experiences.The basic formula is: Thoughts Feelings Beliefs Subsequent Actions = Physical Reality.If your energy is like this, that will come across to potential dates. All of that pressure will keep you feeling unhappy, and people are drawn to people who are happy.Are you able to see how this belief that you can't be fully happy without being married, is actually what's causing your pain and keeping you stuck being single?I was lucky enough to talk to 11 amazing coaches, all with different backgrounds, and their advice was not only thoughtful, but encouraging, real and helpful. Your schedule sounds packed to the brim, so you are facing some tradeoffs that are inevitable because you have to make time to let someone into your life, much less to get to know them well enough to decide if you want to pursue anything with them.Here’s what I took away from them all — and what might just inspire you, too: Gabrielle Loehr says : “You are living an active, full and adventurous life and you seem like you are enjoying the life you have made for yourself. You might not be in a position where you are ready to make those tradeoffs on your time, which is fine — you are only 27.”My response: It’s true: I manage a full-time job, freelancing, a 6-day-a-week workout schedule, taking care of a pup, a weekly 5-hour cooking class and my friends. I’ve been taking inventory of the ways I can say ‘no’ so I can say ‘yes’ to love.

It’s been many years since that ended, and she’s right, acknowledging the damage instead of saying I’m ‘completely healed’ isn’t healthy for me. I’m not to the age yet where I’d like to leave — unless it meant going to Europe for a year. You can do things by yourself or with friends, but you do not consider anyone you meet as a potential date.Instead, I should acknowledge it hurt, take responsibility for what I did to myself and have the strength to fully forgive myself and let it go.
