How to Have the Best Online Dating Photos

Jill Crosby
  Your headshot is your first impression on your online dating profile and arguably the most important part of enticing a more in-depth look at the rest of profile. If you were to list your home for sale, you’d want it to have great “curb appeal” to draw potential buyers inside for a better look. A wonderful headshot gives your profile that curb appeal it needs to magnetize your new love!   The most important thing is to be authentic and up to date with your profile pics. Remember that you will be meeting potential partners in person, so keep it real and always have fun!  

Do Polyamorous Relationships Work?

Dr Lori Beth
Yes polyamorous relationships work and they work extremely well.  Polyamorous relationships can be deep intimate relationships that equal the intimacy of monogamous relationships.  In the past 30 years, I have worked with polyamorous couples, groups and singles as well as monogamous ones.  The differences are not found in the relationship style, they are found in the ways in which the people involved approach issues, conflict and the resolution of problems, commitment and the relationships themselves.   Some believe that a person can only fully commit to one...

Do Long Distance Relationships Work When You Meet Online?

Jill Crosby
You’re on your favorite online dating site and you come across a profile that really captures your attention. You have tons in common; sense the chemistry could be off the charts and feel guided to contact this person… but wait! They live in another country—a plane flight away! Do you go with your instinct, or do you decide that long distance dating isn’t for you because it's too much of a hassel? Let’s dive in to this quandary. First off, what if this person is the absolute love of your life? Are you willing to relocate for that kind of love? If not, check their profile to see if they are. Most singles ARE willing to relocate for love, so the odds are in your favor, even if you would like to stay put.

3 Ways Your Dating Expectations Will Dictate Your Experience

Wendy Newman
Are you a planner? I am. I love Post-its and daily to-do lists. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of triumphantly scratching things off those lists as goals get accomplished. It feels good to plan for every eventuality.   Expectations can be great for motivation and goal-setting, but when it comes to dating, all bets are off.  Dating is not a linear experience and "dating expectations" can prevent you from getting your heart’s desire. Here are some sneaky ones to keep one eye...

An Interview with Jill Crosby - Online Dating Site CEO -

Joy Taylor
How has online dating continued to evolve, and what trends do you see now? When I launched Spiritual Singles back in 2000, there was a huge stigma about meeting someone online. This has completely dissolved as success stories have become so common and most people know someone (or many people) that has met their spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend on an online dating site. It makes sense to have a large pool of eligible singles at your finger tips, rather than hoping to bump into the love of your life at the gym. It’s like shopping online—you can look at many different varieties and styles to find exactly what you are looking for, rather than physically searching store after store hoping to find something you like. By reading in-depth profiles, like we have on Spiritual Singles, members can learn a ton about someone's values,...

How to Stay Positive and Meet Your Soulmate

Jill Crosby
How do we stay positive during times of turmoil and unrest?   Sometimes it can be challenging to keep your vibration high and to stay positive, especially in what seems like great times of change and upheaval, however, staying positive is a key factor in creating the NOW that you choose to experience.   When you can stay calm and in your heart you can help those in need and also benefit the collective consciousness, which we are all a part of. When you silence your mind and connect with the present moment you connect...

Focus on How You Feel, Not How It Looks

Joy Taylor
Elizabeth came to me after a painful divorce.  She was not feeling inspired. She was depressed, numb, angry and often confused.  She was coping by drinking alcohol and fixating over sit-coms.  This was a temporary way to sooth her emptiness and fill her lonely heart.  While she felt triumphant in breaking free from a marriage and a life that stifled her, she was also grieving what could have been.  She wanted to do life differently now.  She called me and shared, “I am re-evaluating my priorities.  I’m looking at everything.  I feel lost and I need to find myself again.”   Everything had looked quite idyllic for Elizabeth only a year before she found my practice.  At 37, she had a handsome wealthy husband, a large custom-built...

Is Openness to BDSM a Deal Breaker for You? Here's How to Broach the Topic

Dr Lori Beth
The advice about when to have sex when dating is often:   If you are looking for a serious relationship, wait to have sex until you get to know each other.  Often what goes along with this advice is a belief that sex does not need to be talked about because it is ‘natural’.  My experience as a sex & intimacy coach and a psychologist is that sex may be natural but desires vary widely amongst people.    Many couples have sex before talking about what turns them on.  If your desires are kinky, this can cause problems as the relationship progresses.   If the first times you have sex, things are decidedly ordinary, your partner can be forgiven if he assumes that...

Self-Care for Empaths

Jackie Edwards
2-3% of the population falls under the "empath" category. Empaths are highly sensitive people who pick up on the emotions of others. Empaths don't just empathize with people, they are known to actually take on the emotions they sense in others. While being an empath is an amazing and useful gift, it can cause much emotional strain for those who don't know how to protect themselves. This short guide will teach you how to navigate the world as an empath and learn to guard yourself against emotional stress. Common Types of Empaths  The moons of most empaths are located in a water sign, the most common being Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio. This is...

What is the best timing to tell a date that you have an STD?

Dr Lori Beth
Let’s face it.  Dating can be daunting in the 21st century.  People are so busy that it is hard to find time to connect.  Thankfully, the internet makes some of the beginning stages of a search for partners easier.  You can join specialised dating sites that seek members who share some of the things you find most important.   These sites raise the likelihood that someone you meet will have the qualities or interests you find essential in a mate.   Once you have spent some time getting to know each other online, it’s time to head out on that first in-person date.    The anxiety and excitement mix together as you wait to see if that spark is there when you meet in person.  After all,...

How Do I Know If They Are the ONE?

Nijole Sparkis
Question: "I met someone I feel so close to, but we are going through a lot of ups and downs. How do I know if they are the one for me or not?" Good question! Even though I was blessed with a flash of inspiration and my husband and I both KNEW right away that we were perfect for each other, this isn’t always the case. In fact, surveys have revealed that only about 12% experience “love at first sight” and less than 30% know their partner is right for them on their first date. Most people respond that they know “after a couple of weeks”...

Greater Authenticity & Personal Freedom

Nijole Sparkis
I have truly been moving through many deep levels and layers of healing, following the passing of my mother last March.   People often describe a complete transformation taking place in their lives after the death of someone close. Something about death causes you to reach deeply into your soul – as I said when my sister passed away over 4 years ago, your “heart gets broken open.” Although my relationship with my mother was very...

Feng Shui Your Bedroom to Atract a Lover

Ken Lauher
Rest, Rejuvenation and Romance: Use Feng Shui in your bedroom to attract a lover or strengthen your relationship: Are you looking to attract a lover? Perhaps you would like to strengthen your romantic relationship with your partner. In Feng Shui, the bedroom (along with the kitchen and entrance) is one of the three most important areas of a home.  If you are struggling to find the love of your life, constantly fighting with your partner, or simply waking up exhausted every morning, the layout and colors of your bedroom may be contributing to these circumstances.   Create a Peaceful...

World Vision of Humanity Waking Up

Jill Crosby
The following is a vision that I received in October, 2011. It came to me in the evening before going to sleep while lying in bed. It was if I was actually there, living it. I don't know what created this mass awakening, however, it was very vivid and beautiful. When I came back to this realm I took copious notes in my iphone which was on my night stand. After meditating the morning of 11/11/11, I felt guided to share this vision with our members in the form of a mass email. I got sooooo many responses from that email that I decided to post it on the site. I feel that this vision is waking up deep seeded cellular (and probably DNA) memories for those that read it, feel it and connect with it. I share this with unconditional love and a knowingness that we are all FAMILY. In-JOY! Here is the vision I was given: Everyone on the planet...
