You smile as you park your car and cautiously look around wondering if she is arriving at the same time. Afternoon coffee is the perfect way to first get acquainted, although you had nearly suggested meeting at the beach and going for a walk first.
Here are some fun things to do (not try) DO! So you can start to feel how success feels. It is important to understand that I want you to put a single day INTO you life that is full of what you Want to happen, yes a whole DAY!
As you wait you dream of the meeting being very pleasant and a strong attraction or “chemistry” immediately occurs. Yes, “chemistry” happens at all ages, you realize and with just as much excitement and anticipation for the future.

You even struggle as you contemplate not opening your eyes until a hand taps you on the shoulder and the miracle begins.
There are of course other methods of getting that morning boost. You can always brew your own cup of Joe first thing and take it with you to work. But, many people are turned off by the prospect of the extra time spent brewing and work spent cleaning the mess up. If you’re a single cup kind of person, there’s no need to worry about that extra clean up and maneuvering. There are single cup coffee makers on the market that will brew up exactly as much as you need quickly, saving you the time and money of having to go to Starbucks or one of its many rivals or subsidiaries.
Next, keep your eyes open. Now this doesn’t mean that you analyze every person you met but if you feel an attraction pay attention to it. Oh yes, that means you must be paying attention. You could be in line at the coffee shop and if you are busy texting on your phone, you could be missing the opportunity to talk to the awesome person who is behind you. Open up the opportunities to meet people. Make conversations with people at the park or at a sporting event. You can do this very gently and natural. Find an approach you are comfortable with and start taking some action!
Noticing a large collection of liquors and the ever present Heineken taps behind the bar, I figured this to be the perfect place to do my latest research update. Jochem said that yes indeed over the next couple years coffee shops will have to make a decision to serve one product or the other. He said that many places would try to subdivide their locations and offer theoretically separate establishments that would allow you to bring refreshments from one side to the other. If not feasible, and an owner had to choose, it was pretty unanimous that the herbal means of commerce would prevail among most of the current establishments.
