EP6 How To Flirt Over Text Without Being Creepy (10 Tips)

How to Flirt Over Text Without Being Creepy with Colette Gallagher, Healthy Relationship Coach. Sending a flirty text message is a great way to spice things up during the dating stage. Technology is continuously evolving, and it makes online dating a lot easier compared to how it used to be in the past. In this episode, Colette Gallagher gives tips on how you can flirt over text without being creepy. Part One of ‘How to Flirt Over Text Without Being Creepy’ As a healthy relationship champion, I teach people how to get into actual loving partnerships. That means you should not be making decisions that you will regret later on. Do not do things like sending inappropriate photos to someone via text because you never know what's going to happen after that. You do not want to take that risk. “Make it your goal to confess your feelings in-person.”– Colette Gallagher (06:45-06:53) If you have been dating for a while and you feel like you're starting to fall in love, self-control and patience can save you from possible heartbreak. Say I love you for the first time when you're together. Cherish this particular moment. I do not recommend using the love word for at least a month or two. Because many people think attraction and lust are both equivalents to love. Don't mess with people's feelings until you're sure. Make sure you're seeing someone for who they are, their good and bad sides. There's nothing wrong about liking the person too soon because some love stories have started this way. But, take things slowly and don't be someone who jumps into a relationship too soon. You want to make sure that this is the kind of relationship you want to keep in the long run. Exchanging conversations via text could be fun, but don't get so carried away that you lose sight of going through the proper dating process. And when you take the time to get to know someone, you get to have more time to reflect on whether they're the right person for you. Listen to the full episode to learn 10 tips about how to flirt over text without being creepy. How to Get Involved Are you looking to attract your soulmate? But you are not sure how to do it?

EP2 The 5 Red Flags in The Talking and Dating Stage

The 5 Red Flags in The Talking and Dating Stage “When Something Feels Off, It Is.” -Colette Gallagher (00:47-00:54) Identifying the red flags during the dating process may be difficult for those who are new to the experience of forming an intimate bond with another person. In this episode, Colette Gallagher talks about the five red flags in the talking and dating stage that will develop your intuition and guide you to wise dating decisions. Part One of ‘The 5 Red Flags in The Talking and Dating Stage’ There are plenty of imperative factors that you need to consider before you level up from casual dating into an actual committed relationship. But before you give the green light to someone, you need to be able to spot the red flags that will eventually cause potential problems in the future. “Most people are on their best behavior in the first few months of dating.” – Colette Gallagher (05:22-05:26) The best way to truly know someone is to take things slowly and make sure that you're really getting to know someone. The first few months of dating should be the part where both people are just having fun getting to know each other without getting too attached because that’s how you know if someone is the right person for you. After all, the best relationships develop out of great friendships which means allowing things to slowly build rather than forcing is like building it on a solid foundation and ensuring that you have something to fall back on when tough times come. Let's co-create magic and miracles in your life! Colette understands what it's like to live with anxiety, depression, heartbreak, PTSD, ADD, and other life challenges. She released all these things naturally, with no medication, using different tools and techniques she learned to heal herself. Now she loves teaching, facilitating, and creating courses that transform her students and using energy clearing to create lasting results in her clients. If you know more is possible for you and you're ready to learn and change things in your life but haven't been able to create those changes or feel stuck, book a free intro meeting with Colette and see if it's the right fit to work together! https://www.colettegallagher.com/

How to Leave an Emotionally Abusive Relationship

Are you in need of a positive relationship coach who can help guide you in the right direction? In this week's episode, Colette Gallagher shares advice on how you can leave an emotionally abusive relationship whether you're about to leave, you've already left, or you're stuck in-between feeling terrible about the whole thing. Part One of ‘How to Leave an Emotionally Abusive Relationship’ Everybody goes through a lot of pains and trials that sometimes those things make it hard for us to identify whether something is normal or not. You don't have to hold on to the wrong relationships. You deserve the best love with the right person, at the right time. If you want something to last forever, you can't keep brushing the unhealthy areas of that particular relationship with hopes that it will work out. And if you're in a real emotionally abusive relationship, you must actively do something to get out of that relationship. Many times, you hope the person's going to change, or they're going to see your value suddenly, or they're going to realize that they can't live without us and change. But the reality is they probably won't. There's a slight chance, but it's not worth your happiness and your life to stay and find out. It's much better to walk away. Surround yourself with people who appreciate you rather than hanging out with those that don't see your value. It's great to be around people who are caring and loving.

5 Dating Red Flags You Should Never Ignore

5 Dating Red Flags You Should Never Ignore  “Obsessive behavior is not love.” -Colette Gallagher (04:39-04:41) You might be dating someone with great qualities. You're getting along really well and having a wonderful time. Can you really spot the red flags during the dating stage to save yourself? In this week's episode, Colette Gallagher shares the five red flags during dating to watch out for. Part One of ‘5 Red Flags During the Dating Stage to Watch Out For’ The first red flag - the person you're dating starts showing up to places that they weren't invited to. As cute and romantic as it might seem, if a guy shows up to see you without being invited, it's a red flag. That's something to be aware of because obsessive behavior is not love. If you're living in the same neighborhood and you just happen to randomly see him, you can overlook that. In general, just stay aware. “Be with someone who brings out the best in you.” – Colette Gallagher (13:51-13:54) We live in this society where it's almost romantic to be obsessed with somebody. We call that love. However, being obsessed with somebody, following them around and stalking them is not love. Being stalked is not romantic no matter how seemingly innocent it might begin. The second red flag - when they go out of their way to help you without being asked, to the point where it's pushy. The third one is not having friends or a social life. It might seem cute if they can spend a lot of time with you, but if they can't make friends, communicate, form bonds and relationships with people in a general sense, it's definitely a red flag. You don't want to become someone's whole life. It's okay if someone wants to do everything with you. But it's important that you have your own life. Number four is coming to your girls’ nights or guys’ nights. If they have a small circle, it's definitely a red flag if he or she can't let you go out alone with your friends. Hanging out with your friends and being able to talk openly without your partner being there is really important. You could volunteer or take a class. You should have the freedom to do things on your own without your partner for your own joy and happiness. Part Two of ‘5 Red Flags During the Dating Stage to Watch Out For’ The fifth red flag is when they want to make you their whole world. This is co-dependence. It's not healthy. It's not okay to think that one person is going to be able to fulfill every single need that you have. When you know your needs, you can find different people in different ways to get them met. Because what happens is if you do find this person that meets all your needs, you're going to overlook major issues in the relationship. “Don’t expect someone to fulfill every single need that you have.” – Colette Gallagher (11:33-11:40) If you're with somebody and they're starting to bring out the worst in you, making you feel crazy or bad, needing to check in all the time, or not feeling trust, then that's definitely a red flag that you want to look at. You want someone that brings out the best in you where it doesn't feel like drama. How to Get Involved Are you looking to attract your soulmate? But you are not sure how to do it?

EP1 Why Do Women Date Jerks?

Why Do Women Date Jerks? “Love Yourself Enough to Set Boundaries” Colette Gallagher (09:47-09:44) Many people tend to jump into relationships carelessly when things heat up. However, this is completely backward. It’s critical to take the time to reflect on whether the relationship is built on the right foundation first. In this episode, Colette Gallagher, Confident Dating Coach, shares her perspective on why a lot of women date jerks which, will take your dating dynamic to a new level. The dating stage is the perfect time to get to know each other but, sometimes people tend to rush into things which lead to bad consequences like ending up with the wrong person and eventually having to suffer from the bad choices that are completely groundless. Part One of ‘Why Do Women Date Jerks’ One of the reasons why some women don’t take enough time to slow down and focus on qualities that a long-term partner should have is because they’re not ready to settle down. They tend to become less concerned about someone’s character and more about physical appearance. Science has proven that during the time of Bobby Leishan, women tend to be attracted to men who would be the best match genetically. Some build up so many expectations that they’re going to be good fathers even if logically there’s no evidence pointing towards that direction. “The feeling of loneliness is the worst place to date from.” – Colette Gallagher (06:59-07:05) Sometimes, a lot of women are dating because they’re bored or lonely. If this is your reason for getting involved in dating, then you’re probably going to attract a guy who doesn’t treat you well. Unfortunately, this is a very common thing and it always leads to a game called spiral of confusion. There’s an analogy that when you’re hungry, you’ll pretty much eat anything, and it doesn’t matter if the taste is terrible. At this point, you’re not capable of making the best choice because the only thing that’s important is to get what you need. On the other hand, if you’re not that hungry and you know there’s a lot of choices, you will most likely choose something healthy for you. You can be alone but not lonely so that’s a good starting place to start dating.  No one can take away your boredom and loneliness except you. And when you date from a full cup, you will find your partner’s support and compliment as an extra source of motivation but not necessarily see it as a tool that could entirely fix you. Another thing that happens is that you’re hoping he’ll change. The first few months of your dating period probably went well and full of promises. Suddenly, he starts changing, and you’re wondering what happened and then you just kind of play it off. You get disappointed and hurt but still choose to live in a fantasy hoping that things will go back the way they were instead of moving on. If someone is dating from a place of loneliness, they tend to attract someone who is lonely as well and that doesn’t create stability at all. Tune in to the full episode to learn more. How to Get Involved Are you struggling with not being able to find your true love? Do you feel depressed and have experienced heartbreak? If you know more is possible for you and you're ready to learn and change things in your life but haven't been able to create those changes or feel stuck, book a free intro meeting with Colette and see if it's the right fit to work together! https://www.colettegallagher.com/book-online
