Date Like A Boss! How To Control Your Love Life
By: Aesha Adams-Roberts
There's a lot about love you can't control.
You love him, but you're not sure he loves you back.
He used to text you every night and then, suddenly, he stops.
You thought things were going great and then he disappears without so much as an email to say goodbye.
You were so sure he was going to commit and then he gives you some lame excuse about not needing a piece of paper to show you he loves you.
What's a modern woman to do?
Some dating experts tell women to be passive, follow HIS lead, don't pressure the guy or give ultimatums. And to an extent, I agree. The old saying goes, "the one convinced against his will is of the same opinion still." You can't make anyone love you or commit to you. But there is something you can do.
Date like a boss. Literally.
You are the CEO of your life and that includes your love life. That means you're in charge of who gets hired, fired, promoted or demoted in the love department.
Let's say you are the CEO of a company and interviewed candidates for a new position. One candidate really impresses you, so you hire him. He comes to work on time, puts in extra effort and is on track to be promoted.
Then out of the blue, he starts calling in sick, arriving late to every meeting, and not finishing projects. The man who showed up at the interview is completely different than the one who is showing up at work.
What would you do? Promote him, hoping he'll change? Uh, no! You'd fire him and find his replacement!
I want you to have the same mindset when it comes to dating.
Don't be so impressed by who he is on a date. Pay attention to the man who shows up in between dates.
You can't control another person and that's what makes love so risky. But you can always control how you respond to a situation. That's what makes you the boss 🙂
