Dating can be fun, delightful and enjoyable – and it should be at all times whether you are single and dating or whether you are in a relationship or married. Even if you have found that love you’ve sought or have been married for years, dating is still a large part of the equation to keep your relationship and marriage fresh and fun.
When you’re single, dating can feel like a full-time job. It’s like finding the right job where you can feel happy and free and you know your philosophies are in alignment so you can express yourself and use your talents to their fullest.
This builds your self-esteem in business and affords you the opportunity to contribute to something bigger and greater. The experience is the same when it comes to finding the right person to date and be your mate.
If you are in a relationship or married, it is important to remember the art of dating and make it a priority. For many, dating can be something that you have either forgotten how to do or perhaps that you do once a week or less often as a “date night”.
Men and women often have different ideas about dating and what constitutes “dating”. Each person may have their own perception of what a date is and isn’t and what they are looking to accomplish during the time they spend with someone else.
Do you want a date or a mate?
In other words, are you really looking to simply go out, have a good time, enjoy yourself and the time you spend with someone in the moment? That’s a great date! You enjoy the time you spend preparing, pampering yourself and getting ready for the “big date”, then you burst with joy when you meet him, and go with the flow of the plans you’ve made while smiling and savoring the pleasures of it all.
Or do you find yourself looking for a connection with the other person while you are dating as described above and enjoying the time you spend with him? Do you consider if you want to spend more time with him? Do you want to know more about him and what makes him tick? Or perhaps how your lives, values and lifestyles could possibly fit together? Perhaps you want to know what his goals and dreams are for the year or the next three, where he wants to travel to next, how he likes to celebrate his birthday, and how he treats and takes care of himself.
Be honest with yourself and ask yourself where you are in your dating life – whether you’re single or not.
If you’re in a relationship or married, when was the last time you and your sweetheart had a terrific date where you took the time to get dressed and pamper yourself before it, enjoyed being together without the fuss and stresses of life for a few hours, and laughed at the end saying, “That was great!”?
If you’re single, whether you’re dating online, being introduced to potential suitors by others, or simply connecting with people in your everyday travels in life, decide for yourself if you really want a date or if you want a mate.
Mating is different than dating because dating is part of the fun of mating that should never stop. The distinction is that when you mate, you continue to date the same person with as much enthusiasm, interest and joy as you did when you dated
If you have a mate, act like it is your first date and enjoy the fun of getting to know each other all over again.

Is Yours the Greatest Love Story Ever? Tell Sandals your story and win a trip for two!
Boys Before Business is excited to announce that Sandals Resorts is giving away all-inclusive vacation packages to couples with the Greatest Love Story Ever! You and your Prince Charming can win an all-expenses paid trip for two!
The Royal Wedding is right around the corner, and Kate and Prince William’s story is a wonderful example of how a girl really can have it all! A few weeks ago, Boys Before Business wrote a blog entry about the importance of being open to receiving the man of your dreams and realizing that sometimes he doesn’t come in the package we expect him to. Do you remember reading it? This same thing has happened to Prince William and Kate! The press refers to Kate as a “commoner,” and she and her soon-to-be husband are breaking all of the old rules about whom a Prince should marry. Typically, a prince is supposed to marry someone from royalty, which Kate is not. But once again, true love can and does overcome everything. For Prince William, where his finance comes from is much less important than who she is and how he feels about her. Congratulations to them!
So tell us: Where did you meet your Prince Charming? Was his arrival a total surprise, or had you been planning for him? Has your relationship flowed easily, or did you have some bumps along the way? What were the challenges that the two of you had to successfully overcome, and how has your love been able to rise above these challenges? And finally, how have you been able to HAVE IT ALL?
Boys Before Business has had the pleasure of collaborating with Beaches Resorts By Sandals as curriculum trainers during their fun BFF Girls Getaway programs. We are excited to be visiting the Turks and Caicos resort in May and again in October. During those visits, we will be lounging in the sun, getting massages, and maybe even be taking a catamaran cruise! Of course, we will also be talking about strategies that will help you find and keep the man of your dreams.
We are excited to share the news with you about this great contest! Send in your entries, and don’t forget to include how you were able to find and keep the man of your dreams, and how Boys Before Business helped you do it! Good luck!

We hit New York with a bang. Next stop Boston, then Valentine’s Day in Phoenix. We followed up a terrific book signing event at Barnes & Noble with our live Girlie Chat workshop at Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship store in New York. It was a fun-filled night that started with a Trish McEvoy make-up bar.
Women sipped wine and munched on yummy appetizers while getting make-up and makeovers. They heard our stories of how we met each other and how we met the men of our dreams. Women learned the Boys Before Business philosophy and how to set a foundation for a terrific relationship and a fantastic career.
Participants were treated to a special guest. Trish McEvoy herself joined us during our workshop and talked about the importance of self-love and the importance of feeling confident. She got up close and personal and shared some amazing stories.
The night ended with goodie bags, shopping at Saks with a special discount and a buzz about taking the first steps to having it all.
A great time was had by all. One of our guests summed up everyone’s experience from the night by saying: “Awesome presentation and much appreciation for your empowering words.” ~ Angela
