    ..was sitting (wondering/ruminating) why a potential new relationship just didn’t feel quite right and happened on your latest Uplift. The timing was perfect.

    When I met this potential relationship guy I mentioned that I like cycling – didn’t ask him to cycle with me, just that I like cycling and he said, “I think cycling is stupid.” ) I think he was coming from that whole you cycle there and then you cycle back, kinda like chasing the white ball around the golf course (which I also like) so what’s the point mentality – not sure.

    The conversation topic changed but I was left with this lingering “something ain’t right feeling” yet… still couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong.

    Then I read your Uplift, and thought, “That’s it!” That’s why his “I think cycling is stupid” comment left me feeling like I was not supported, encouraged, or connected and probably never would feel that with this individual. I could have challenged him but not sure that would have changed anything anyway.

    Your article is a great check point for any potential relationship – friend/business partner/life partner. Definitely was for me.


    Not this one for sure.

    with much gratitude to you

      Hi Elissa,

      Thank you for pointing out these steps can be used to check out a date. Perhaps at speed dating events, if you attend them, these steps could be tucked in your memory bank or a piece of paper for reference.

      I am so glad this blog/article saved you some angst.

      Happy future dating!
