DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

"Ignore The Media"

Everywhere you look you see sexually suggestive, scantily clad or totally naked women advertising non-sexual products, or women betrayed as sex objects in music, movies and on television.  They are on the cover of magazines and in ads to sell a product. 

Problem is, women are believing the hype and have taken to behaving as if sex is a woman's only value to men.  Basically, indulging in self-objectification, accepting the beliefs that society has bestowed upon us.

Ladies, please stop allowing society, celebrities, or anyone for that matter to define who you are, and/or dictate your behavior.  Take back your DIGNITY, PRIDE & SELF-RESPECT!  Love, fame or fortune is not worth the sacrifice of your dignity, pride or self-respect.  Learn to love and honor yourself enough that you no longer entertain any thoughts or ideas of self-degradation in any way, shape, form or fashion.

Unfortunately, this over-sexualization of women has changed the mindset of many single women, and many now believe the key to a man's heart is through sex.   If you are of this mindset, know that you are devaluing yourself horribly to think that your only value to a man or society is sex.

Whether society honors or thinks highly of women or not, we must honor, value and think highly of ourselves, and cease abolishing high standards or lowering them for love or money.  Neither is worth the loss of your self-esteem in the long run.   Self-loving, dignified and self-respecting women wouldn't dream of offering up their bodies in exchange for affection, love or money.  If you are not yet that woman, work on becoming her!

MS. EDNA IS A TEXAN ONCE AGAIN!

 "Relocated Last Weekend"

As many of you know, I have been suffering from a severe case of rheumatoid arthritis for the past year and a half that crippled me.  Over the last few months, I haven't been able to walk.  This is when my wonderful son Steven, intervened and relocated from Los Angeles to Houston, then came to Oklahoma City to relocate me so he could help me heal.

After only a week, with his love and guidance, I am once again able to walk with a walker and exercise on my stationary bicycle that promises to improve the range of motion in my knees, ease or eliminate the pain so that I can walk on my own once again and regain my life.

We lived in Houston for 15 years, from 1985 - 2000, when I was transferred here from Oklahoma City in 1985, while employed by Exxon/Mobil.  We always loved it here, and moved when one of my daughters asked me to move to Florida to help her while she was expecting her son, and going through an ugly divorce. Since then, I have lived in Atlanta, Los Angeles, OKC once again, and now back in Houston.

I started my first business here in Houston, a very successful nail salon after leaving Exxon/Mobil in 1986.  Consequently, I am anxiously looking forward to opening Ms. Edna's Academy of Romance and Glam in the very near future, where I will host seminars in meeting the one and looking glamorous while doing it.

I want to thank all of you who have followed me through my journey as loyal readers of msedna.com.  Stay tuned for the next episode, and my continued support on your journey to meetup with and marry Mr. Right, via msedna.com, Ms. Edna's Academy of Romance and Glam, as well as my upcoming empowering new book.

May GOD bless us all!

HOW TO BE HAPPILY SINGLE!

"HAPPY & SINGLE"


"SINGLE-HOOD IS NOT THE KISS OF DEATH"

Ladies, as some of you have already learned, being single is so much better than being with the wrong man.

I recently read a quote that really resonated with me, "Being single doesn't mean you are weak, it means you are strong enough to wait for what you deserve."

Know that your happiness comes from loving you and not from men.  Yes, you want a man in your life, and there is not a thing wrong with that, but know that you have to fall madly in love with you first.  Then and only then will you be successful in love with a good man.

It starts with learning to be happy while alone and waiting on love to find you.  Therefore, stop sitting around with negative girlfriends who are desperate for a man, complaining about their lack thereof. Get a life ladies, and enjoy it to the fullest.

While surfing the web on this subject, I ran across this dynamite website that should be very beneficial in helping you to get a life and enjoy being single while waiting on "Mr. Right" to find you, a philosophy I have been advocating for years! http://datingtips.match.com/happy-single-woman-13443485.html

STOP SEARCHING FOR LOVE!

 
"Have Fun, Enjoy Your Life As A Single"

"Allow Love To Find You"

I can't stress too much, how important it is to build a rich, full and engaging social and civic life for yourself as a single woman.  Why?  So you can take your focus off of finding love, and allow love to flow naturally into your life when the time is right.

Far too many single women sit around being miserable because they don't have a man and looking for love at every turn, instead of living in the now and enjoying life as it is in the moment. This attitude makes you desperate, and a prime candidate for being a "fool for love."

Being alone is not synonymous with being lonely.  Being lonely is a choice that you make.  You can be very happy alone and single, that is if you choose to be.  How can you be lonely if you have friends, family and an active lifestyle to interact with?  You can, but only if you don't actively engage yourself.  Spend quality time with friends and family, enjoy hobbies, and fulfill your civic and charitable responsibilities.

Trust me, God will send true love into your life when the timing is right, without you going through a slew of 'Mr. Wrong's & Mr. Right Now's.'

HOW TO AROUSE HIS INTEREST IN YOU!

 "Engage Him In Conversation"

The easiest way to arouse a man’s interest in you is to engage him in many hours of conversation - on the telephone and on dates.  By engaging him in conversation (not Q&A sessions), you will begin to find out things about him that no one else knows; his dreams, goals, difficulties, favorite holidays, childhood memories, favorite food, favorite drink and pet peeves, etc.  He must also know these things about you.

The more of yourself that you share with him, the more of himself he will share with you.  That is, if he feels that he can trust you.  You gain his trust by not criticizing or showing indifference to things that he tells you.  You will never gain his full trust if you discuss with him the personal business of friends and relatives.  If you can’t be trusted with their secrets, he knows for sure you can’t be trusted with his.

As time goes on, you will begin to appreciate and understand each other in ways that others don’t.  Once the two of you start to share secrets, your relationship will intensify.  What you are doing here is creating intimacy and a special bond that is shared only between the two of you. You will be creating a foundation on which to build love for one another and the desire to be together long-term.  As you can see falling in love is not about game playing and strategies, it’s about opening up to each other by sharing and caring; thereby creating intimacy as you allow each other to see who you really are. 

Learn to really listen when having conversations with everyone until it becomes a habit.  All of us love having ones undivided attention when we are sharing our life experiences, a man is no different.  Learn to really listen to people and when they expose a character trait or situation that you find admirable, never fail to acknowledge it and express your admiration.  None of us can ever receive too many strokes including men.

In order to build a good relationship with a man or anyone else, learn to be yourself, love yourself as is, and allow others to do and be the same.   Don’t take anything for granted – be appreciative and verbally grateful for every single gesture that people extend to you no matter how small or trivial it maybe.  Nothing makes a person’s day more so than being verbally appreciated for the things they do for you.  It doesn’t matter whether you are male, female or child.   

Therefore, start dishing out compliments and thank you’s abundantly and stop assuming that men can’t handle these things without becoming big headed, because they flourish and revel in both.  The only criteria is to be sincere and genuine as you lavish men with compliments.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CHOOSING A MAN WISELY!

What a Loser!
Confucius Says, "It is better to lose a lover than love a loser".

In selecting a possible mate, first ask yourself this very crucial question, "Would I want a son just like him?"  If the answer is yes, that's a great start. If the answer is no, you would be wise to keep it moving.

Secondly, does he have integrity?  By that I mean is he a man of his word, does he do what he says he will do?  Is he honest?  Can you trust him?  Is he emotionally mature?  What about his moral values, are they admirable?  Does he stand up for his beliefs and high standards?  Does he even have high standards?  You can get the answers to all of these questions over time, and by observing how he lives his life.

Thirdly, is he the type of man that you admire, respect and look up to? If not, you most definitely must keep it moving, as you will never have a happy life with a man that you neither admire, respect or look up to.

The warning signs are always there ladies, but we choose to ignore them or believe we can change him.   Let's not forget about gut feelings, as they never, ever fail us.  If you feel that something about him is not quite right, don't ignore these feelings, keep it moving.

Being single is not the kiss of death, but a miserable and unhappy marriage certainly is.  Get a life and enjoy it to the fullest until the right man comes along.  Whatever you do, don't settle, you will be sorry!

IF YOU WANT A HIGH QUALITY MAN, YOU MUST BE A HIGH QUALITY WOMAN!

"A High Quality Man"
"High Quality People Set High Standards For Themselves, In Their Appearance, Mind, Body & Spirit"

High quality people set high standards for themselves and stand by them like a pit bull.  They give alot and expect alot.

My goal is for all of you to be high quality women, so you can attract high quality men.  This is why I preach taking care of yourself and striving to be an all around better person, prior to dating.

Ladies you must understand, and so do men, that whatever you want in a mate, you must be that type of person yourself.  So many men want a high quality mate who is loyal and faithful, but they are unwilling to be the same to her (my two ex husbands). I was loyal and faithful to both of them, but they were not to me.  My mistake was choosing men who didn't meet the same standards I set for myself, due to my low self-esteem and lack of self-love and self-worth.  Do you see the importance of choosing a mate wisely?

Few good men do this, they know when they are a great catch, and they seek a great catch in return.  This reminds me of a "blast from the past", Do Right Man, Do Right Woman by Aretha Franklin.

FIRST DATE ETIQUETTE

All Dates Should Be Fun
If you have done your prerequisite dating homework, i.e. self-development, self-esteem building, as well as self-love development, and getting all glammed up on a daily basic,  the following first date etiquette will be a breeze for you.

1.  Get all dolled up.   Every date should be treated as a special occasion, the first date is no exception.  Therefore,  make sure your hair and nails are done, your makeup is on point, and you look drop dead gorgeous.  This is not to impress him, but for you to feel confident, self-assured, good about yourself, and cool, calm and collected.

2.   Be yourself.  Don't try to impress, be impressed.  Don't put on any airs, just be you.  You love who you are, so why wouldn't he?

3.   Give him your undivided attention.  Turn your cell phone off, and listen attentively when he is conversing with you.

4.  Don't over share.  For your part, keep the conversation light, and your personal business to yourself.

5.   Have fun.  Make this your primary objective.  Look for every opportunity to laugh and be jovial. 

6.   He's the man, allow him to be just that.  Let him open doors for you, etc.  Don't you dare reach for your purse when the check comes.  If he is a real man, he expects to pay and enjoys doing so.  Don't suggest a 2nd date, he's the man, let him lead and you follow.  Thank him for a fun evening and leave it at that.

7.    No sex or heavy duty petting.   He is just a date, need I say more.

8.   By all means don't drink too much.  Again, need I say more.

SO YOU SAY YOU WANT TO BE MARRIED!


"Then Why Are You Giving Your All In Serious Relationships?"

A man will marry you if it makes sense to him. If he is already receiving all of you, it won't make sense to him  to marry you.

A man who truly loves you won't be put off by the standards you setup for yourself, nor will your standards run him off, as so many of you believe.  A man who runs off didn't mean you any good in the first place, and most certainly isn't in love with you.

Therefore girlfriends, think twice before you start cooking, cleaning and running his errands, etc. More importantly, don't give him all of your time and sex on demand.  All of these things are wifely duties, and you are not his wife.  In most cases, you haven't even been offered the job.

Maintain a busy social and civic lifestyle and you won't fall prey to these situations.  See him on the weekend, and make sure this time spent together is enjoyable and fun.  Every now and then, you can see him one time during the week.  However, don't make this a habit.  

The more he falls in love with you, quite naturally the more time he will want to spend with you.  But until he puts a ring on it, he can't, that is if you're smart.  Trust me, he will put a ring on it when he can't see you as often as he would like. Again, marriage has to make sense to men, and it will make sense to him when all of his needs aren't being met.

This is how you get a ring on it ladies, by giving him less instead of more of you.  Just remember to stay in your girlfriend lane, and keep in mind at all times that you are not his wife, and you don't owe him anything more than being a great girlfriend.

LET A MAN BE THE MAN!


“So What You’re Successful and Make Good Money, 
Good For You”


I have been told by countless men, including my son, when the tab comes, their dates immediately reach for their purses, and they promptly tell her, it’s on them. In my opinion, when women do this on dates, it signifies that they are so grateful to have been asked out on a date, they feel they must reward the man by picking up the tab. Or, they feel superior to their date, and wants him to know they can afford to pay.

Ladies, a real man expects to pay and wants to pay on dates (look at the smile on that man's face as he takes the tab).  The only exception to a woman paying for a date, is when she asks a man out, or when in a serious monogamous relationship, and she wants to treat her man on his birthday, his promotion, etc.

If a man is broke, then he ought to know that he's not qualified to date a top quality woman like you.  In fact, in my opinion if a man is broke, he shouldn't be dating until his finances improve.  Here again is another instance where a real man will put a ring on it, when it becomes financially taxing  to foot the bill for all of your many outings, so he can get some relief.

I've read on line that men want women to split the tab on dates but are afraid to ask.  I can't emphasize enough,  a real man expects to pay and wants to pay on dates. You do the math!!!
