Dating in America
With July being our Nation’s celebration we thought we would write about a big issue for single Americans…Online Dating. While online dating has worked for many people we have met a countless number of singletons who have not had much success with this dating option. We have compiled a list of problems with online dating as well as a way to up your chances of success.
1. Too many options – with so many choices it is tough to weed out the good prospects form the bad ones. They all start to sound the same and as you delete one after the other because your time is valuable and you are busy, you may be missing out on someone special.
2. Dating too often …

Did the winter weather get you down? It is time to find that pep in your step and get back out there. Spring is here and there is so much to do to lift your spirits.
Spring into Action
It is time, once again, to get your fitness routine on point. If you started a workout routine in the New Year it is time to change it up a bit. Find a new class you like, get a personal trainer, or join a spring sports league. You will enjoy the new activity and may even meet a new cutie while doing so. If you put off starting an exercise routine, now is the perfect time to get going. The endorphins will lighten your spirit and you will look good for the upcoming bathing suit season.

Trim the Fat – figuratively
We are not just talking about another workout routine… we mean that you should take this time to sever toxic relationships. Get rid of those friends that tend to bring you down and definitely do not continue to date someone with whom you see no future with. See to it that you are not wasting your precious time with people who hold no value to you in your life. When ending these relationships, you don’t necessarily need to be mean spirited or dramatic; just simply state that your life has taken you in a different direction and that you are no longer available to them. Also, be open-minded with the possibilities of whom you choose to date. Possibly even date someone you may not normally date; it may be a refreshing change. For all …
Tis the season when we tend to be a little more stressed out than usual, with our inner “Grinch” rearing it’s lovely little head. If you’re currently dating, this may put the kibosh on having successful dates or even flirtation. Here are a few tips to stay grounded, happy, and interesting during the holidays.
Avoid packing on the pounds.
All year, we do out best to stay fit and be healthy. Once Thanksgiving rolls around, all our hard work seems to go out the window, and our overindulgence of food and drink seems to flow strongly until we’re left with our New Year’s day hangover. This year, as you continue to look for that special someone in your life; attack the holidays with a plan that wont leave you crabby and and few pounds over where you’d like to be. When attending …

We love MAC makeup! They have the best color and their eyelashes are the best. When going out on dates, or just enjoying a night out on the town we always want to look our best; and the people at MAC cosmetics, always make that happen! Thanks MAC!
Needless to say we’re always on the go, from multi tasking our families, business, to just the general things we do in a given day we …
Happy October Everyone! Yes, that’s right it’s the wonderful autumn month of October where fall festivities get into full swing, including everyone’s childhood favorite: Halloween. But Halloween isn’t JUST for kids anymore. It’s the perfect time to let loose, jump start your creativity and meet new people in an over-the-top way!
What to Wear?
The main thing to remember about Halloween is that you should have fun. Pick something that you like and you feel good in. You should feel confident in your costume and go for appeal. Halloween doesn’t suspend the rules of dating, you should still show confidence, look your best, and knock the socks off the person whose attention you’re going after. Here are some quick tips in case you get stuck:
Be original: try to think outside of the box. Ladies, if you have a great figure, …
So it’s that time of year when the masses huddle around their TV screens and watch hours of football on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays (seriously, thurdays?). We at The One, forever trying to help couples achieve maximum success in relationships would like to share a few tips for you ladies on how to effectively love and satisfy your man’s other love interest.
Be aware that he’s most likely going to want to watch football all day on Sunday, don’t assume that he’s going to want to go hiking or play party games with your friends. Remember that he still cares for you, but football is his getaway for him and something he has enjoyed for some time now.
Make your own plans on Sunday. As we stated in #1, football is a getaway for him, maybe use football as a getaway for yourself …
Dating in the summertime is very exciting! Your date spot options expand with the (sometimes) beautiful weather to include restaurants and venues whose main draw is their outdoor seating. Still in the end, as with any season, you are just looking to have a good time with someone you are interested in. The right location can help you relax and slip right into easy conversations and if things go well, maybe a little after-dinner dancing. With summertime on our mind, we decided to “serve” up (get it) 5 of our favorite places that will make those first dates a little less awkward, or provide a nice change of pace for you and your significant other. Some of these are old standbys, and others are new hot spots, but we think you’ll enjoy all of them!

There have been a number of recent surveys conducted and Washington, DC has featured prominently in all of them. We’re apparently the sixth most-caffeinated city, the second most-active city, the rudest city, and one of the ugliest cities (don’t worry we still think you’re pretty). We also have the worst traffic, we’re the most literate, and we’re very low on the manliness scale (42nd to be exact).
Out of all of these studies there was one that stuck out for us; being 42nd on the manliness scale. Now it’s a well-documented fact that the ratio of single women to single men in Washington, DC is 4 to 1 and …
