Dating outside the box

Posted by / 07-Jul-2020 01:01

Embrace new experiences– it’s not necessarily about being an adrenaline junkie though!

Meeting new people, turning up at a new class, writing a dating profile might all be things that push you out of your comfort zone and can feel daunting.

Author and success coach Rebecca Perkins gives the lowdown on dating in midlife.

Does the idea of online dating in midlife terrify you or excite you?

A bit like packing for holidays we have no idea how much to take - so more is the way forward! We've actually had a few days off of lovely sunny, family fun, but John was in the office til late last night getting started on the personalised boxes. ) we were lucky enough to win #SBS - Theo Pathitis' Small Business Sunday competition on Twitter. In less than 3 weeks it's Autumn Fair, our first trade show and huge opportunity for us as part of @theopaphitis #SBS pavilion - there's been a lot of work to get ready!

And I've not even got to packing my stuff yet... As you know we're off to Autumn Fair on Saturday. 🎁 In February we attended the winners event, met Theo and had our picture taken with him. #manchesterpride #pride #onelove #onelovemanchester #lbgtpride #lbgtq #prideweekend #bankholidayweekend #datenight #dateday #celebratelove #dateenvelopes #rainbowenvelopes #keepdating #datemore #livelaughlovelife Anyone else trying not too get too excited a sunny bank holiday weekend and the thought is sunsets... #newparents #newparentsdating #maketimemakememories #newbaby #newbabygift #newmummy #newdaddy #datingwithbaby #datingwithkids #babyshowergiftideas #giftsfornewdads #giftsfornewparents #ayearofdates #watchthesunset #sunset #sunnyweekend Me and this one are sneaking off for a date this afternoon! Yesterday our planning meeting happened in the car as we drove to @notonthehighstreet for a catch up - it didn't look this serene trust me!

So we're all set up and ready for @springautumnfair tomorrow. 3 years ago I stuffed sets of date card envelopes as the orders came in.

We'll show the whole stand then but for now if you've tagged #ayearofdates in your pics see if you can spot yourself on our Insta wall 👀 Now to relax and unwind before we see what the next few days have in store... There were ribbons to tie and each box was built as I went along...

I'm the worst at embracing change but I can see how this is more efficient for the business and the customers!!! #slowmo #production #slowmovideo #dateboxes #boxofdates #behindthescenes #seriousface #smallbusiness #familybusiness #datesinenvelopes #embracechange #3rdbusinessbirthday #envelopes #changeisgoodsometimes Preparations are well under way. #birthdaybox #birthdaygift #thoughtfulgift #blackandgreen #kraftbox #thingstodowhen #giftsforfriends #personalised #personalisedgifts #sixtiethbirthday #sixtytoday Life is for living, there's no need to wait, until you're 'that age' to set a date. There's two chances to win; by ordering through our website & by liking and tagging a friend on the original post (see the grid).

So let's see what changes our 4th business year throws at us... I'd ove to show you more of our @springautumnfair prep but I'm sworn to secrecy... For all the things you have put on the list, too busy, too tired to do what you wished. We've booked a trip out for my favourite meal later in the week, I'm hungry just thinking about tasty treats at @peckfortoncastle 🍰☕ Good luck with the giveaway, T&Cs on the competition post 💌Planning!! Whether it's new products, how we're juggling the day or getting John to the hospital about his back!!

Apologies for the lack of smiles too, I'd done this about 6 times and forgot I was recording 😂 . So this is the most instagrammable thing we've got going on 😂 Behind this is boxes of boxes, big panels of graphics and enough flat pack furniture to start our own Swedish shop... #smallbusiness #bigopportunity #autumnfair #tradeshow #firsttradeshow #sbspavilion #sbswinners #orderform #showprep #clipboard #makingmemories #ayearofdates #Behind The Scenes Love a Bank Holiday weekend... #ordertoday #outofoffice #smallbusiness #offonanadventure #delayedshipping #anniversarypresent #anniversarygift #giftformywife #giftformyhusband #weddingpresentideas #romanticgift #personalisedgift #personalisedbirthdaygift A year ago ( one week if your really counting! #dateday #familybusiness #afternoontea #maketimeforromance #maketimeforeachother #taketimeout #maketime #makememories #keepdating #datingmyhusband #datingmywife #equalitytime #childfree #allthecake Loving the combinations of colours you guys are choosing for the birthday box, and hese two really stand out 🎁 Pink and black is a very popular choice too 💕🖤 . So here is a box of things you can do, whether you are thirty one, forty or perhaps fifty two. We're so grateful to family and friends who are enabling us to go on this crazy journey.

This soon became a nightmare - 52 cards plus the blanks per box...

I also insisted on shuffling the cards, to look pretty, and arranging them in a fan inside the box...

I have a friend who is a mountain guide, she always talks of the fact that mountain ranges are scaled one step at a time. Trust yourself– which you’ll have been doing for much of your life. Remember back to a time when everything was going well and you were in flow with life. Commit to do things differently– wishful thinking won’t get you anywhere.

One thought on “dating outside the box”

  1. If you're still new to dirty talking, then My Sex Hookups advises you to start off gradually by gentle flirting and maybe a few compliments." instead of immediately saying Did you know that dirty chat grows your confidence?
