Mr mrs fresh dating dating the reign of solomon
In a quiet moment, I even run a short film of our first date in my head (a couple of glasses of Pinot Grigio made the movie really rush past in a blur of When Harry Met Sally-style wit and soft-focus romance) and guess what? I've also brought along my dog, Wilma, for company.(Must like dogs being an absolute given for me in any potential relationship.)We are meeting for coffee in this leafy, affluent part of London and I have the feeling that after a few false starts, flings and one-night stands, this could be the date that changes everything for me.
This time, it's not someone that a friend has fixed me up with nor someone I've met at a party, but rather someone intelligent, age appropriate (I'm 52), also divorced and emotionally sympathetic. Simon Mills, right, is divorced and been struggling to find love. It's a well-worn cliche, but we had nothing in common. I uploaded my most handsome, recent-ish photo and dived in. Two lunches, two early evening drinks, two dinners.
He turns to Manj Weerasekera, aka The Fresh Start Guy, a dating coach, to learn techniques to find - and keep - the next love of his life Calling on his own experiences as a divorced father of two who is in a happy new relationship, Manj helps wealthy people (and a few celebrities) to find their 'Mrs Right' the second, or even third, time around. Do I pour out my heart, weeping on his shoulder as I tell him the story of my own break-up? There was infidelity, pain, heartache and industrial levels of mutual disrespect. Even though I should have done it years before, moving out was protracted and painful. But after a couple of months, the intensity of dating began to consume me. Manj wants me to start by imagining my ideal woman. Key to my success with this ideal woman is - counter-intuitively - my perception of my former wife.
