#62 - You're Not Being "Too Picky" By Having High Standards in Dating
It seems like every time you tell someone what you want in a relationship, you’re met with the same argument: you’re being too picky. Your friends, your family, even strangers(!) will all tell you that you need to lower your standards if you ever want to find a boyfriend. And with an abundance of dating apps and websites, there’s a never-ending pool of potential partners to choose from. So, if you’re holding out for someone who meets all of your criteria, it can feel like you’ll never find them.But the truth is, you’re not being “too picky” – you’re just being selective. And there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, having high standards is a good thing. On this week's episode of The Single Girl's Guide to Life, Chantelle discusses how having standards shows that you know what you want and how to hold those high standards, despite the scepticism that might surround you!-------------If this show is helpful to you, consider joining our amazing community of other single ladies at and you'll get access to monthly zoom meetings, The Single Girls Book Club and more!The Single Girl's Guide to Life was created by Chantelle Dyson.

#55 - How To Stick With It In Dating When The Odds SUCK!
The odds in the dating world seem to be against us. Why is it that we can't seem to find the one? Is it because we're looking in all the wrong places? Or is it because the universe is just playing a cruel trick on us?The statistics in dating suck. There are just too many people and not enough time to date them all. And, to make matters worse, people keep getting married and having kids, which means the pool of eligible singles keeps getting smaller. So, what's a single person to do?With roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who are single, there are only about 620 million potential mates for you to choose from. And of those, only a small percentage will be compatible with you. So the chances of finding a good match are pretty slim.Like the show?
