Lagan, Constance Dating: A Spiritual (and Humorous) Approach Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other,
Other
No matter what your age, you know dating is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. Thrills and spills present themselves in sometimes equal, and many times, unequal proportions. Unfortunately, many people decide to give up the ride rather than risk one more deep dive or perilous curve. The good news is that there is a way to enjoy every date, even the ones you consider “disasters.” Everyone hopes their next date will light up their life forever, or, minimally, for a month or two. But even when the wattage is insufficient or when the light shines brightly for only one person, dating is always an opportunity to grow spiritually  and to laugh. Motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan encourages dating singles to look at each meeting as an adventure, a pathway to learning more about oneself and more about “what makes the world go round.”
