Are You Ready for a Relationship?

After a bad relationship experience, many singles take a much
needed relationship break to regroup and recover. Some singles
get stuck in this break, and stay single for years at a time or
permanently. Even though these singles don't enjoy the
loneliness, they do appreciate the lack of hurt and drama in the
absence of a relationship. Many justify continuing to stay
single by saying they are not yet ready for a relationship.

This brings up the question of how a single person may
effectively get ready for a relationship.

When people say they are not ready for a relationship, what
they really mean is that they are not ready to go through the
drama and/or trauma of their last few relationships again. Many
people don't realize this is what they mean. Most people
subconsciously base their decisions about love on past
relationships, and not on the ideal future relationship they are
hoping for. Who would want to dive right into the drama and
heartache of a good relationship gone wrong? Who could ever get
ready for pain? Almost no one.

Many singles reach a stage when they take a look at a lifetime
of good relationships gone bad, realizing they are the only
common denominator. At this point many singles decide in the
back of their minds they are simply incapable or -- worse yet --
undeserving of having a good relationship. Then they put
themselves on indefinite hold. They may say they are not yet
ready, but underneath it all they may never again allow love in
order to avoid the hurt that follows.

Although for many people this decision process happens in
midlife, for some it can happen as early as their twenties, or
even as a teenager.

After a person puts him or herself on a relationship hold,
there is almost no way back to love. This is especially true
those people on hold think the way back to love will simply come
with time. Time will not get you ready for another relationship.
A lifetime of being single may pass and you will still not be
ready for another relationship. Work, coupled with the
determination to have a loving relationship, is needed.

Getting ready for a relationship can take a relatively short
amount of time, as long as the time is spent doing the real work
of getting ready. Some of the steps involved in getting ready to
love again include:

· Figuring out your relationship pattern and what exactly went
wrong in your past relationships

· Learning about what you need in a relationship and learning
to pick a partner who can satisfy those needs

· Learning healthier relationship behaviors, like how to pick
better partners and how to successfully start and build a

· Getting out there and meeting new people, with an emphasis on
meeting new types of people who you have not met before

· Learning how to avoiding common dating and relationship

If this is your intent, do you want detailed information on how
to accomplish the above steps? Do you want to get ready for a
truly satisfying and wonderful relationship? Do you want to get
ready for love that continues to feel good instead of going bad?

You may want to enroll in the following two online classes I
have designed to help you get the love you want and truly deserve.

The first class is called "How to Stop Being Single." This
class will take you through the steps necessary to go from no
relationship or a bad one to attracting a partner for a healthy,
positive, satisfying relationship. For more information and to
register for this class, go to

The second class is called "Worst Dating Mistakes and How to
Avoid Them." In this class you will learn how NOT to make the
most common relationship-devastating mistakes. After taking this
class, you will be able to make better decisions about how to
start a brand new relationship so that it has a chance of
blossoming into long-term love. This class is still in the works
and should be available early next week. Watch for a midweek
announcement of this class in your email box.

If you are single or know someone who is and hear, "I am not
ready for a relationship," remind yourself or him/her that
without the right actions and strong intent, the readiness
itself may never come.
