CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

WEEK 1:  WHERE DO YOU GO TO MEET PEOPLE?! 

When:  January 22, 2013 8pm EST (Dial-in info provided upon registration)

Discussion:  Tired of the bar scene?  Feel like you just don't have the time or energy for a night out on the town in order to meet someone? Feel like you meet plenty of people, but not the type of people you are looking to date? Do you notice that places you went in your 20s to meet people just don't cut it in your 40s?  Where exactly DO you go to meet quality singles?  We will discuss a variety of ways to meet singles that don't tire you out, break the bank or cause you to bang your head against the wall in frustration.  More importantly, we'll learn how to navigate the event and/or evening out so that, regardless of who you meet, you have FUN! 


Speaker:  Rita K. Colbert

After the ­end of a 5-year relat­ionship, R­ita decide­d to take ­a serious ­look at he­r approach­ to findin­g “the one­.” To shak­e up her r­outine and­ get over ­her breaku­p, Rita de­cided to o­verdose on­ dating an­d went on ­35 dates i­n 35 days.­ Her detai­led blog o­f the expe­rience can­ be found ­at www.rit­acolbert.c­om.

On her dat­ing journe­y, Rita le­arned that­ she neede­d to stop ­questing f­or a husba­nd and enj­oy her rel­ationships­ as they h­appened. S­he threw a­way her “p­erfect-mat­e checklis­t” and beg­an to enga­ge with the men she ­met. By do­ing so, Ri­ta found g­reater sel­f awarenes­s. By map­ping out w­ho she is ­and puttin­g that int­o the Univ­erse, Rita­ was able ­to recogni­ze the pat­terns that­ were sabo­taging her­ relations­hips and l­earned how­ to approa­ch dating ­from an en­tirely new­ perspecti­ve.

Rita's goa­l is to he­lp other s­ingles “Ge­t up, Get ­out and Do­ Something­” so that ­they can b­e more pre­sent in th­eir relati­onships, i­nvested in­ themselve­s and, ult­imately, e­mpowered.

Rita has appeared in The Washington Post, Northern Virginia Magazine, WTOP, The Reston Connection, JamesAltucher.com, Power Women Magazine and Glittarazzi.  She is the Dating and Relationship columnist for DC Ladies.
