Last night I got invited out to an workshop hosted by Downtown Dharma. It was, “Creating Love and Money: An evening to help you know your worth, create abundance, and attract real love.”
Now, anyone who knows me well, knows that I’m not really the workshop type. Not because I think my life is so fabulous that I don’t need help. I’m just not into the workshop vibe, usually (too touchy-feely, self-helpy). If there’s something about my life I want to fix, I’d rather read a book, see a professional, work hard at fixing. Not so much with the talking about it.
BUT, I accepted this invite because one of the presenters was Andrea Syrtash. Andrea is a friend and sometimes client, and I genuinely like and respect her (hence the friend thing). So I was excited to go.
Anyway, I took lots of notes, but most of them are FOR ME. Here’s something interesting I wrote down that I wanted to share with everyone. And I hope I’m not misquoting Andrea:
“During the first 3 months of dating, everyone is lying.”
She went on to explain that people aren’t intentionally lying. Rather, they’re trying to please the person they’ve just met and like, mirroring the other person, on their best behavior… Not, in other words, being their true selves. And that it takes a few months for everyone, in a normal dating situation, to adjust and stop lying and start being normal/who they really are. There are, of course, some people who are just lying phonies.
So, um…I started this post with a vague idea that it was going to be a poll. But, truth is, I overslept and I’m running late and I’m not all that sure what exactly my question would be. Other than, what do you think of this? Which really isn’t a poll question.
So, what do you think of this?
