San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2008
Get A Love Life (http://www.getalovelife.net) is a dating coaching service that originally focused on working with men over 50 who were seeking a relationship. After being besieged with requests for help from single men and women in their mid forties to their late sixties, San Francisco based dating coach, Annie Gleason, has begun to work with all midlife singles.
She teaches middle aged men and women in the Greater SF Bay Area how to navigate their way to a successful, passionate relationship with that special someone.
"Most of us don't really have role models for dating past our twenties and thirties. Once you're past that age, society as a whole doesn't recognize that single people still want romance, passion and companionship in their lives," she states. "And it's scary. By this time, people are comfortable with their place in the world. They have their career, their friends, and they feel knowledgeable and competent. Then they start dating, and feel like an insecure teenager again. It's not the kind of youthful feeling that people are after!"
Dating can be daunting at this age, and many people know midlife singles who have simply given up hope for a relationship. Even though Annie's clients come with the baggage of living, their wide variety of experiences give them the ability to cope with it.
Many people who have been out of the dating scene for a while are unsure about how to utilize technology, with its online dating sites, to help attract potential mates. Annie brainstorms with clients so that their online profile reflects her clients individuality. (http://www.getalovelife.net/index.php/Online-Profile-Tuneups/Online-Profile-Tuneups.html) She gives clients tips about how to manage the dating cycle. "I help my clients to keep appropriate boundaries until they know that they can trust the person that they're dating. I help them identify destructive patterns that didn't work in the past, so that they don't put themselves in a position to get hurt so easily," she says.
Annie helps her clients gain confidence in their dating skills. She works with them to help them be "out there" and available to others, while feeling in control of the process. Not only does she work with people individually, but she holds workshops, (http://www.getalovelife.net/index.php/Services/). Her clients have fun practicing talking with strangers, dressing for dating success - she'll shop with them to show them how, and trying new adventures. She says, "It's great to see my clients stretch - they get such a kick out of being able to feel confident in the dating world."
Annie Gleason is the West Coast's midlife dating expert. She coaches in person, on the phone or via email. Her coaching eases the way for single men and women as they face the challenges of dating later in life.
