Welcome to my author page! My name is Christie Jordan and I write for women who believe they can reinvent and improve their lives. My own life story life has been a cycle of reinvention so I understand about navigating change, being resourceful and thriving in unexpected circumstances.

It's true: it is harder for booming women. Credit: Stocksy. What relationship assistance does a professional matchmaker give her daughter about men and relationships — and what can the rest of us learn from her? Dating drill and owner of Dinner for Two Katja Rembrandt has spent 30 years helping men and women play the dating game. She understands matchmaking at the same time as well as Redheads and she has five pieces of advice. We advance girls and women to be cultured and ambitious, to kick-arse in the boardroom, but then expect them en route for play a subservient role in their relationship. We need men to be raised with a stronger sense of self so that they can be aware and admire strong women rather than feel threatened by them. We additionally need to redefine masculinity so so as to a man does not need en route for be dominant and controlling in array to feel worthy.

Afterwards my first date in a day ended in disaster, I spoke en route for other fortysomething women — and a psychologist — to learn what they could teach me about running the gauntlet of romance.

My process of natural deselection is trawling hundreds of profiles that accept in a blur of torso selfies, confusing group photos and grinning men in their 50s holding out big fish this choice of profile adventure is one of the many mysteries of online dating.
