Dominique De'Vizia: Dating as a Single Parent - Part I

In this episode, I get to sit down with Dominique, matchmaker, certified Divorce Mediator, and Life/Relationship Coach, to discuss dating for single parents.Dominique had her first child at 23 and was with her children's father for five to seven years. She was single for about two years and dating was not even a thought. She returned to church and ended up meeting her significant other there.We discuss:-Why people claim they are okay with being single-How you can prepare to date-When you should consider matchmaking-Why communication is important-Why it's important to figure out what you were responsible for in the last relationship and why you should "work on you"-Why you should follow up after a dateA lot of people think they are okay with being single because of things in their past. You have to be honest with yourself. Do you want to date or not?"The relationships that you've been in have the tendency to condition you." -Dominique De'ViziaYou accumulate knowledge, money, experiences, prestige, and power but who do you share it with??Questions to ask yourself:-What kind of man are you looking for?-What does this man spend his leisure time?-What are you going to do to get his attention?-What are you going to do to set yourself apart from the competition?Dating is an art that should be mastered. If you need help, Dominique is available to assist via matchmaking or her Love Scout program.Connect with Dominique via Facebook https://www.facebook.com/deviziaandcompanyConnect with me via Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/singleblackmotherhood/Visit the websitehttps://www.singleblackmotherhood.com
