It is less than one month until Dating 202 and spots are filling up quickly. I wanted to let everyone know that I am adding a few things to 202 that were not posted in the original announcement.
First, I am looking for 3 male and 3 female volunteers to be on a panel for about 10 minutes of the presentation to give the guy/girl view on things. The audience will still be able to give their feedback during this time. Volunteers need to be able to project their voice, not be "mic hogs", have a spirit of wanting to assist others in open communication, preferably have attended Dating 101, and not be man/woman haters.
Second thing that will be added to the presentation will be some flirting tips for guys and girls.
As was mentioned in 101, we will have a longer discussion about the love vs. lust/infatuation and the "sex" thing. We will also be getting into the differences between male/female communication.
FOR THOSE WHO PRE-PAID by credit card or check for 101, I do have your credit card receipts; my interns did not realize that they were in the receipt book, so I apologize for any inconvenience.
Pre-payments: people are more likely to commit to something and not flake out if they pre-pay for an event vs. waiting until the day of the activity to decide if they will show. The ability to commit to something and follow through with plans is a sign of a healthy person and someone who is able to make a commitment to a person. Given the average no-show/flake rate for meetups is an astonishing 50%, there seem to be a lot of people in the meetups who have follow through issues. There is hope for you, start with keeping your commitments now with this seminar, show other singles that you can follow through with plans & are date worthy.
IF YOU NO LONGER WISH TO RECEIVE 202 UPDATES, just RSVP "NO", that is your responsibility as a member to do so and not send mean e-mails about why you are receiving Meetup updates. Meetup also auto generates reminders about events & if you have not marked "No", then you are going to get the updates.
Pre-payments: Checks can be sent to: Lori Vann LLC or Lori Vann Counseling
4020 Huffines Blvd., Suite 120
Checks are $15.
Credit card pre-pays: $15.50 charge if pre-pay by Feb. 20th, $16.00 at the door. I do not accept Paypal because they take about 5% out of each transaction, which means that I would have to charge more to recoop my costs lost on Paypal. I am trying to keep the rate as low as I can to cover the photocopying, the food, the room usage, etc.
Questions about credentials have arisen and people ask who I am to offer this presentation, and that is cool. You should ask questions of people who offer educational classes. My website has my professional speaking history, my media consulting history with links to TV interviews & some radio interviews, and most importantly my professional counseling experience. www.LoriVannCounseling.com
I am very much looking forward to Feb. 23rd for Dating 202 at Prince of Peace Lutheran School and Church off of Midway Road in Carrollton.
Thank you to all who posted such kind words re: 101 on the website and all of the wonderful feedback that I have received. It is an absolute pleasure to hear from you, help you, and interact with you.
Lori Vann, M.A., LPC-Supervisor
