Love is in the Moon, TODAY

Sorry for my writing hiatus, but... I'm back.

And I'm back on a very special day. Today, actually tonight... there will be a HARVEST FULL MOON.

And for those of you who don't know what that means or why that is significant....legend has it, actually Chinese legend that today is a very auspicious day for romance!

According to the legend, on this day the Man in the Moon records all the names of happy couples who were fated to live happily ever after. Is it true? I really have no idea, but wouldn't it be nice if it were? Wouldn't it be nice if there was a proverbial Man in the Moon who was watching out for us and helping us meet our mate and live happily ever after? Sounds pretty romantic to me!

So... if you want to believe in the Man on the Moon today or if you are just hoping he might write about is a little advice for when you are out and about today and tonight...

1. Make it a point to smile at a few strangers, opposite sex strangers. This might open up a world of possibilities

2. Reach out to "a crush" today. You don't have to do anything overt or over the top; maybe just send an email and say hello.

3. Ask a friend or colleague if they know anyone for you... anyone single and sexy and fun. Who knows, they might just know your next significant other.

4. If you are in a relationship- married, dating casually one person or trying to make a go of or say one extra sweet thing today- it doesn't cost you anything to put a smile on that other person's face.

5. If you have a friend or colleague who is having a tough time of it right now- they are going through a breakup, a divorce, lost their job, are feeling all alone, reach out to them and say something encouraging. Karma is key and what comes around goes around especially on a day where a Man (or a Woman) in the Moon might just help you find true love!


  1. Thanks for the good advice Samantha. I have enjoyed watching your success. Regards. Earl

  2. Hi Samantha,
    I finished reading 'Matchbook' today. Just loved it. And thank you so much for sharing so much of your own direct experiences. In all, extremely inspirational. I am a practising psychologist in South Australia. I really do want to focus on more on 'wellness' and the more positive side to how people relate, and what better way than with matchmaking! Would love to start something up here. Will let you know! Again, thank you for your insights and all your sharing! Wishing you continued fun and success from Downunder!

  3. Attraction Explained: Your Social Circle

    Our social circle is one of the biggest determining factors in who we meet. Going back a bit, in a 1956 study 70% of married American couples lived within 20 blocks of each other before marriage. Now admittedly that was 1956 and this is now, but the basic principle holds true - you're more likely to find success with someone closer to you than you are someone further way.

    So, how do we use this to improve our chances? Simple - we expand our social circle!

    1) Network, Network, Network
    2) Organise a night out, invite all your friends, tell them to bring friends
    3) Join a club. A sports club, a movie club, a dinner club, a sex club - whatever you fancy!
    4) Don’t try and jump into an encounter or relationship with every attractive person you meet.
    5) Put people in contact with each other.

    Attraction Explained

  4. love is when something happens to your honey, they get sick, and you have to take care of them the rest of their life, and rather than feel life has cheated you, you feel it a great honor to have been chosen to take care of them, because you wouldnt want to entrust such an important responsibility to anyone else.
    Now, if it's years and years, the decision of whether to enter another relationship if your honey is incapacited, is more complicated, isnt it?

    and of course, all the relationships that dont work out prepare you better for the one that does;

    and there are only two kinds of relationships, those that last forever and those that dont, and most of them dont; all end except the last one, and we dont know if that's the one we're in until it does, do we? so we just stay in the moment and take it a day at a time and try to be the best we can be while it's playing itself out; relationships have a mind of their own and go where they're supposed to go, so we should try not to drive others crazy while it's getting there;

    and sometimes we get to be with the same people again in another life is what I believe.

    and finally, for the moment, the correct answer when your honey tells you they're leaving you for someone else and feel terrible about it, is "Thank you for the respect of telling me; that must have been very hard. Because I love you, if you will be happier somewhere else, that's where I want you to be. And I will miss you, and cry and be in some pain for a while, but I'm glad for what we shared, will always value it, and I owe it to what we've meant to each other to be ok, and so I will be." Easier said than done, but still the right answer.

  15. Very nice post and good advice too, thanks.

  16. I loved Miss Match. Don't understand why they cancelled it. I believe it was on Friday nights and that is not a very good time slot. Do you allow your articles republished on websites with full credits?


  17. hi... good one... it was interesting... dont write now a days???

  18. Good advice. The problem with good advice is that so few are willing to take it.

  19. There are no "dating techniques" as far as I'm concerned. Anyone who stays true to himself, honest and caring will sooner or later find the partner he needs.

  20. I perfectly agree with you, "white label dating"!

    Being natural, self-confident & happy is the best and most effective dating technique I know

    “You’re On Fire” - True Story Almost Unbelievably Funny


    I was on a double date Sunday night. We two girls were early, and the guys were late. When my friend went to the bathroom, the saxophone player at the restaurant saw me and came over to give me a special solo saxophone serenade. When our dates arrived, the saxophone player remained undeterred and decided to continue trying to woo me. He walked over to our table, saxophone in hand, and shook hands with my date and continued flirting with me. He used the ruse of collecting musical play list requests from me and my friends. Later he returned to our table again, this time, bypassing my date and standing in between our table and the one directly beside us. Unbeknownst to him, his coat tail (purple velvet jacket) ended up resting in a lit candle. I said, “you’re on fire.” He thought I meant “you’re on fire” in a flirtatious way. His face indicated his pleasure in what he thought was my responding to his saxophone playing and flirtation. Actually, though, I saw flames two feet high extending up above his head as his whole coat caught on fire. My friend finally yelled, “FIRE!”, and I said, “Take off your jacket!” By this time he turned and realized the blaze behind him. He ran to the kitchen where they doused him with water. A few minutes later, he returned to playing with the band.

    This was too unbelievable - while still being true - not to share with you.
