Adi Cecile Success Stories
Afraid To Date Becomes Enthralled With Her New Dating Life
Women newly dating
1. What prompted me to finally consider dating online, and dating at all?
I was still getting over the heartache of my last relationship, I moved to New Orleans, and I started to open my life up and met Adi Cecile, who encouraged me and coached me into starting. Knowing that I had her support really put me more at ease to begin dating.
2. How do I feel now as compared to before I embarked on the online dating adventure?
I have to say, I feel AMAZING. It’s always a bit of a growing pain when you step outside your comfort zone, but it feels really great to tackle this online dating phenomenon head on. I will admit, I felt threatened on the site a few times (one guy went on an angry rant about what I do for a living; I’ve had a few guys flat out say “f u then” when I don’t respond to their messages), but honestly? Those guys are the exceptions, not the rule and I’m damned if I’m going to let some a-hole make me feel unsafe through a computer/smartphone screen.
3. My transformation over the last several months?
I feel more like myself than I have over the past 4 years. I was not in a very good place in my life for a while, but now, overall? I feel absolutely amazing.
4. Compare/contrast my emotional well-being now and before Adi started coaching me.
Wow. Pre-Adi, I was still kind of a mess from my break-up almost 2 years ago with the guy I thought I was going to end up married to and having babies with. My ego was intertwined with the relationship and my emotional well-being, which was absolutely detrimental, because it took quite a blow that I almost didn’t recover from. Name it, I felt it; not good enough, will always be alone, no one would ever want me, I wasn’t (insert adjective) enough, and WHAT ABOUT BABIES???? WILL I EVER HAVE BABIES???? Tick-tock….Yikes. What a hot mess. At first, when I started online dating, I had a few missteps, still found myself getting carried away with the fantasy, still felt infatuated and let that guide me, still felt needy on the inside BUT I put myself out there and I learned a lot. I’m STILL learning a lot. The Journey Continues. By now, I feel happy and relaxed.
5. Is dating a better or worse experience than I thought it would be?
Oh better. Much better and way less scary than I'd anticipated.
6. What are some of the things I have learned that have had the biggest impact on me and caused the biggest shift/transformation in mindset/attitude?
Well, I started salsa and bachata dancing again. Social dancing is a HUGE part of my life and of who I am; I love it so much. I stopped dancing when I was in my last relationship because he wasn’t supportive of it and giving up that aspect of my life really damaged my spirit for a long while. THAT is a mistake I will never, EVER make again; giving up part of myself and what makes me so wonderfully me for someone.
