My favorite Matchmaker Paul Carrick Brunson recently tweeted: “If you don’t allocate time to find love, it’s going to be very hard for love to find you”. Now I had to seriously think of the amount of time I allocate to dating. Even though I’m on the go a lot, I don’t necessarily have “manhunt” on the menu, although I certainly wouldn’t run from a promising potential. How much time should you allocate to finding love?
Last night I attended a panel discussion at W Hotel in Buckhead, presented by The Root and Target. It was a positive and empowering event for women who are Young, Female, and Fabulous (oh hush, 2 out of 3 isn’t bad). The panelists included: Tracy Ferguson from Jones Magazine, Taj George (singer/SWV member), Beverly Bond (DJ Extraordinaire/Black Girls Rock founder), and Jacque Reid (TV/Radio personality) facilitated the discussion.
One of the attendees asked, “How do you balance work and home life?” When home life is supposed to include devoting time to dating, how do you juggle everything? Most of us have busy schedules and many responsibilities, so how do you carve out time for dating? How do you prioritize what is important and necessary?
Are you leaving it to chance or do you actively take steps to meeting someone special?
