By (other events)

Wednesday, July 15 2020 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

This open forum-style discussion is for singles of all ages, gender identities and orientations.

The process of online dating is a fraught one. The flake factor is high. Algorithms seem to work against us. People don't seem to want to meet anymore.

Dealing with such a constant stream of frustration can be damaging to our well-being. Worse, it can lead us to quict dating entirely, often sitting out on opportunities to meet someone special.

This workshop/discussion group will cover the common causes of dating burn out, how to avoid or deal with them, and how to keep on keeping on until you find that one person that makes it all worth it.

There will be a quick presentation from 7-7:30.

At 7:30, we'll open the discussion and have a Q & A where members can ask specific questions.

Some of the services I offer include:

Trigger management for those with mental health issues like anxiety or depression
