Valparaiso, IN – Ultimately, we all want to find someone to share our lives with. It’s been proven statistically that people live longer and healthier and happier as part of a couple. That’s the way we’re made, to be with someone.
Being single is not easy. You can’t predict if two people are going to fall in love and it’s even tougher to meet the right person at the right time. Sometimes people are shy or afraid to put themselves out there. Maybe they got burned in their last relationship or they’re coming out of a nasty divorce. They don’t want to make those same mistakes again. When a relationship ends, there’s nothing more damaging to your morale, self-confidence and self-esteem.
Betty Russell is a dating and relationship specialist dedicated to helping people date successfully, find their ideal match and co-create a great relationship.
“We work on their inner-game,” says Betty. “Discovering who they are. A lot of times, people who have been part of a couple and become single again have to rediscover themselves. We work on identifying ourselves and then what we want in a partner.”
Betty says while chemistry and physical attraction are fun and part of a great relationship -- we all want that spark -- you have to be able to step back and be a more objective observer. It can be an expensive endeavor to find out someone isn’t right for you. A great relationship is about what kind of experience you want to have, how you want to feel.
“The story doesn’t end with ‘You had me at hello,’ says Betty. “It’s about knowing who you are and what you really want. That will help you screen out candidates so you don’t waste a lot of time and energy and affection and money with someone who is not a good fit for you."
