We spend so many Meetups discussing the Dating and Mating parts of getting out there again on your quest for a mate and great love.

Yet just how much time have we spent chatting about and delving into the RELATING part of the equation? Not nearly as much as we should have, I suspect!

With that in mind, I say it's time to chat about RELATING! Whether you’re in a relationship right now or not, YOU’LL NEED THESE SKILLS WHEN YOU ARE IN A RELATIONSHIP!

From what happens after you've gotten past those first iffy moments of the first date or two or three with Mr. or Ms. Right, on to what happens next. What things can you do (or not do?) to make this seemingly great match really work? 

What makes a potential mate run in the opposite direction (instead of towards you) despite the first few dates going great? 

What are some of the key ingredients about relating that form the foundation for a strong and healthy ongoing relationship?

By the way - here's the most important key for everyone to keep front and center as you look at any relationship you might find yourself in this year ... In case you haven’t heard me say this before ...I cannot stress this enough:


So if you've been in relationships where you and your partner were bickering, often breaking up and getting back together, not trusting each other, and not feeling as though you are equals ... THIS IS NOT A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP!

And then the bigger question is this:


Now there's food for thought.

So, RSVP now to reserve your spot for what I anticipate will be a well attended gathering as spring is in to full bloom ... That part of the year that can feel so empty when you’re single! But if you play your cards right and learn some new tips to use on your journey to an awesome, healthy relationship, just think how great those summer vacation trips can be!


... IF you have been learning all the right tools to help you get there AND to help you grow that relationship in a healthy way.

And all of this for only $10 plus a few bucks towards some great libations! (Not to mention the opportunity to meet some great like-minded singles!)

So don't miss out - RSVP now!

Remember, although the official meeting starts at 7PM, most folks start arriving at 5:30PM to have time to meet some great potential dates and also to order your libations from the Mercury Cafe to thank them for allowing us to use their great meeting room. 

So plan to come as early as you can so that you get extra time to meet all those potential mates who are also coming early to MEET YOU TOO! Grab your food and drink and come join us in our own private meeting room on the main floor. We have had one amazing success story with a couple who did just that! Both came early their first time at the Meetup, met each other before anyone else arrived, and have been happily ever after ever since! True story!

Your fearless leader,

Mary Jo Fay, RN, MSN

    So, so. Join Match .com. And then come back here to be an expert. Strange group discussions. Bank accounts and IRA's? Nothing fun to involve the participants. Ended up talking politics with 4 people. But nothing about relationships; but just do it?

      I don't understand your comments. Sounds like you did connect with at least four people that night which would be a good thing. One of the couples did meet through, but the rest of us met through Dating, Mating and Relating. David used the information from what he had learned to develop the relationship he started at Mary Jo has said before we all need to use our options which includes other dating venues such as, eHarmony, etc. All of us had prior relationships that didn't work. Relationships do take a lot of work and both parties have to work together to make happen. Bank accounts and IRAs - these are things couples should discuss if they are going to the next level - marriage. So many people, including myself, forgot about those things when they got involved with someone. You and your special person have to decide when you are in a relationship - no one can tell you that. Good luck with your adventure in finding the one for you.

    I hope I was able to help answer some questions! If anyone else would like to contact me, please do so through the site here and I'll be happy to talk more with you.

      David - just wanted to again say congrats to you. Your future wife is a total gem and crackup.

      Thanks!! I got very lucky for sure!

    Steve and I hope everyone understands they need to open themselves up to the possibilities just like we did. Daters need to realize if it isn't working, just say thank you and then next!

    What a night! My panel of "experts," (actual folks who have found love through this group) were AWESOME! Thanks to all those who came and shared their stories of successful love! I think most everyone left with more hope that the right "someone" is out there for them as well. Sure was a lot of "after-meeting chemistry" keeping people there long after the meeting was over. And that's how things start, right?

    It was a fun evening, nice to get out and mingle. Heard a lot of good stories and got to see the other halfs opinions.

    My first time attending, had a fabulous time. I really appreciated the opportunity to be with so many mature adults and engage in an open conversation about creating quality and positive relationships. Thanks for a great night!

    Sorry,I missed the last one. I have had a good run at life, but seem phase-shifted to the "new" rules. Would love an open discussion. A repeat of the basics? What is considered a gentleman and a bad boy? Women, I have no clue! But, I'm honest. Help!
