Speed dating and power yoga

In the last week, I found two powerful approaches to dating and exercise.  First, I found speed dating.  It just makes so much sense.  Why spend one entire evening with one date when you can meet ten?  Granted, all ten weren't amazing, but I really enjoyed meeting lots of new people.  The funniest part about speed dating is the way that eight minutes can feel like 8 seconds or 80 minutes, depending on the date.  

FastLife ( did a great job of organizing the evening, and the biggest bonus of all -- I met a great new girlfriend!  Some of the guys were pretty cool, too.  All in all, a night is never a wasted when it brings about new friends.

Shortly after my speed dating session, I learned about Power Yoga at YogaSport in Dallas ( -- and it was the perfect place to spend a Friday evening.  I felt the most amazing high at the end of the session -- a sense of euphoria that I hadn't felt in a long time....if ever.  I was at peace, in a state of relaxation and bliss.  The room was heated to 90 degrees, and the space was full of energy.  I was greeted by Angela, the instructor -- and and I have to say that she's done an amazing job with her studio.  I felt as if every muscle in my body was engaged, and I was grateful for the workout.

This past week was powerful -- speed dating, power yoga and relaxation with friends.  I'm less focused on dating right now.  I'm more focused on myself -- and it feels good.    


  1. What do you have to offer a man that you didn't have at 25? Or that a 25yr old girl with similar background and looks can't offer?

  2. That's a serious question by the way. One that any non-desperate guy contemplating a relationship with you is asking himself.
