Ask A Dating Coach: Gold Vs. Fool's Gold

Network event

Link visible for attendees

Join Ruth for a frank, empowering talk and Q&A about lesbian/queer dating, love and relationships!

Today we'll focus on: gold vs. fool's gold, love vs. fantasy—how to tell the difference?

Falling in love is a magical experience. Suddenly seeing someone else as the person you've searched for all your life, the embodiment of your dreams come true, the person with whom your heart can be safe -- all of this is so amazing and compelling and beautiful. And yet too often, when we think we've found gold, it's only fool's gold -- a mineral that sparkles but has no enduring value.

How can you tell the difference? What are the 5 most important things you need to do when you think you've found love? I hope you'll join us for the Ask A Dating/Relationship Coach session coming up on October 9, at 9:00-10:30 a.m. Pacific. This session costs $25 if you are not a member of the Conscious Girlfriend Academy, but it is FREE to all CGA members (so now might be a good time to sign up for membership! Learn more about that here.) Email us at [masked] for more information, or if you need a partial scholarship in order to be able to attend.

The Conscious Girlfriend Academy is the world's leading resource for lesbians, queer women and adjacent non-binary people who want happy, healthy love lives, so we're here to support your heart. Questions about dating? Not sure how to start? Intimidated or turned off by online dating? Already seeing someone, but not sure she's "the one?" In love, but struggling? Or just wanting to improve your sex life? The Academy can help.
And if you haven't already picked up a FREE PDF copy of our Amazon bestseller Conscious Lesbian Dating & Love, you can do that here!

The Conscious Girlfriend Academy is here to support you in creating the dating and love life you want and deserve. Lesbian relationships can be the best relationships on the planet, but because two women* can bond more deeply, our love also takes more skill. You're worth it. So is she. And we're here to help. Join us for our Ask-A-Dating-Coach session on October 9, or check out our upcoming schedule here.

Love,

Director, Conscious Girlfriend Academy
