I’ve recently been out on a couple of dates each with two great women, and it’s about that time to set some New Year’s plans. I like them both, but obviously can only ask out one. I know whom I want to kiss at midnight, but I don’t want to send the “I’m not interested” message to the other woman. How do I handle this?
If you’re a couple of dates into each of them, then it sounds like you have enough data points to be making a decision based on where your heart and your head are taking you. Listen to what they are both telling you, ask the one woman to watch the ball drop with you and tell the other woman that it’s time to move on. That’s right, cut her loose. Success in relationships is not about keeping as many options open as possible, it’s about moving forward aggressively with what your heart and head tell you. At Kelleher International we constantly counsel our clients about honesty and directness, and so our message to you is embrace your choice, say goodbye to lady #2, and move forward with momentum with the lucky lady you’ve chosen. Happy New Year’s!
