Dating Backward: Cornerstones of Great Relationships – Part 1
4 Week Class

The purpose of dating is to find that one special person that touches your heart and soul so deeply that it defies description. It’s about knowing yourself well enough that you recognize the person you don’t want to live without! Cornerstones of Great Relationships is a four week workshop based on the book Dating Backward: A practical guide to dating and finding your soul mate. It was created for anyone who is single, divorced, widowed, or currently dating. During this four week workshop you’ll learn:

  • The importance of developing an Intellectual, Spiritual, Emotional, and Physical connection with your mate.
  • Discover the power of creating a Must Have and Deal Breaker list.
  • Create extraordinary communication in your relationship.
  • Recognize what a healthy relationship should look like.
  • Identify red flags of toxic relationships quickly so you don’t invest time and emotional energy in the wrong relationships.

This group is facilitated by author, blogger, speaker and dating coach Rick Soetebier.

There is a one-time registration fee of $20.
