Romance Coach Sponsors Contest for Singles: "8 More Ways to BLEEP Your Lover"

Share Article

Trying to date is terribly anxiety-provoking for most singles and often paralyzing. Romance Coach Kathryn Lord has collected 92 serious, not-so-serious, and some down-right funny reasons to avoid trying to date that her singles enewsletter readers have submitted over the years. Lord wants to make the list an even 100, and is having a contest.

Nothing is much scarier for singles than contemplating dating. Looking for love can be terrifying, and those without partners can develop wildly creative excuses to avoid looking for love. Romance Coach Kathryn Lord is having a contest: "8 More Ways to BLEEP Your Lover" to jiggle singles' imaginations and stir up smiles.

To bring a little humor into the finding-love process that can feel more like a horror show than a romantic movie, Internet dating coach Kathryn Lord collects the reasons why not to bother looking for love from *eMAIL to eMATE*, her online dating enewsletter readers. "50 Ways to BLEEP Your Lover" now is a list of 92, and Lord wants to make it to 100.

Lord says, "So often when I tell singles what I do as a Romance Coach, I get responses like, 'Oh that is so interesting, I'd love to hear more about it. I really would like to find a mate, but...' and then come a zillion reasons why they haven't or won't." Kathryn Lord noticed how original and colorful some of the excuses could be, and realized that the "reasons" also expressed genuine fear. And Lord knew that this fear really did get in the way of these singles who wanted to find love.

"I thought it would help singles to make their fears more conscious, and perhaps laugh a little at themselves and the silliness of others at the same time. So I asked my enewsletter readers to send in their most creative reasons that they had used to put off starting to date. And my readers knew just what I talking about!"

Here are the first ten reasons not to look for love that Lord received, some funny, but all serious on one level or another:

1.    I have to lose a few pounds first.

2.    I just started a new job and am too stressed.

3.    I just lost my job and am too stressed.

4.    I have to pay off a few bills first.

5.    I want to wait 'til my kids are out of the house (they are 6 and 10 now).

6.    My parents just died and I need to heal for the next 20 years.

7.    I have no track record with eligible and appropriate men so why ruin a perfect record?

8.    I might get a nibble with the cyberdating thing and then what excuse would I have!

9.    Yeah, I may have lost 51 pounds, but I still have 30 to go and I never found the profile that says their ideal date has 5 pounds of extra skin on her belly!

10.    I might have to go to funeral in two weeks.

Lord labeled the list "50 Ways to BLEEP Your Lover." At first the list was really less than 35, but the list has been a powerful attraction on Lord's Find-a-Sweetheart website for Internet daters, solidly drawing website visitors, month after month. And along with the visitors came more *eMAIL to eMATE* subscribers and more contributions to the "50 Ways" list. Now the 50 Ways to BLEEP Your Lover list is up to 92.

"Why stop at 92? 100 is such a nice, round number," Lord laughs. "And I am willing to bribe to get 8 more."

Romance Coach Kathryn Lord is having a contest: The author of the best reason not to start looking for love, as judged by her *eMAIL to eMATE* readers, will win four ½ hour sessions of Romance Coaching with Kathryn and copies of each of Kathryn's two books "Find a Sweetheart Soon!
