Let’s talk about dating, more specifically swiping. You know what we mean, the left and right swipes that determine your dating fate. Apps like Tinder, Hinge, and Bumble have taken over the dating scene leaving a path of destruction in their wake. Online dating – a gift and a curse. We now live in a digital-first world where first impressions and innate attraction reigns supreme, and chivalry has flown right out the window.
With “endless” options on dating apps, countless matches left on read, and ghosting at an alltime high, how can we navigate the precarious new dating terrain post covid without losing your mind, and your dignity? We chatted with Kathleen Cameron, success, life, and manifestation coach, and your personal genie in a bottle here to help you to manifest your mate!

She helps others step into their true potential to become the best version of themselves and facilitates bringing their goals and wishes to actual reality.

As a manifestation coach, how does that apply to the search for love?
Finding love is not for the faint of heart. There is certainly no quick fix for attracting the right person, one that adds joy to your life and not an addition of stress.. Like anything in your life that you want to manifest, it’s important to be as precise as possible about identifying what you are looking for in a relationship. The more clear you can be on your intention, the more likely you are to manifest it. This certainly applies to your love life. Take the time for introspection and clearly define what you want to manifest, then be diligent and relentless about your intention. Write it down or record a voice note, whatever you dream of, show it to the universe. Stay the course and be thankful, every experience helps the universe get you one step closer to manifesting your dreams.
Fear of rejection is a very real thing, what are your suggestions for navigating this?
Overcoming fear of rejection is a big step in the right direction when it comes to finding love. In your quest for your match it’s imperative that you become aware of this very real fear and identify its origin. In order to let your guard down, so you can spark an authentic connection, it’s important to see that fear of rejection is based on past experience. The things we fear the most come true because we are operating on that frequency of vibration. Instead, let’s be confident and expect what we desire to come to us effortlessly and easily. Anything that doesn’t match this you can then say goodbye to, without feeling rejected because it’s not what you asked for ! This is why being self-aware is so important in the quest for love. We attract who we are. If you are your best self, you will attract the best to you and they will see in you all the amazing things you see in yourself. Rejection isnt an option for the self-aware and self-assured. And lets be real, sometimes we feel rejection from someone we didn’t really like anyways!
Wedding season is upon us, and many experience single wedding attendee anxiety, what tips do you have for us?
Wedding season is here and there is nothing wrong with attending an event solo. Why? Because you may meet that special someone there if you have an open mind and a good attitude. Everyone in attendance is there to celebrate love, if that doesn’t set the tone, I don’t know what will! The other great thing about weddings is that “how do you know the bride and groom” is an instant icebreaker. Weddings are a great opportunity to have genuine conversations. Be a conversation starter, ignite interest, be armed with fantastic stories, you never know who will be in the room.
In today’s dating landscape ghosting is at an all time high. How do you prepare for that and what do you do when it happens to you?
The best thing you can do to prepare for, and ultimately avoid being ghosted is to exude positivity and confidence. Positive energy allows for a greater return on a positive outcome. How can you attract your true love if you are negative? You can’t. If you find yourself consistently getting ghosted, you have to ask yourself, is it me? Again, it’s all about setting a positive intention and reminding yourself to stay laser focused on positivity and manifesting the love you want, the love you deserve. There is no limit to what you can manifest as long as you accept it in the fibers of your being. You want new love? It’s yours – but you need to nurture an environment that feeds the soul of new love. Maybe you do something out of the ordinary which takes you out of your comfort zone.
If you do find yourself getting ghosted, it’s imperative that you lead with clear and concise communication. Remember to always treat someone the way you want to be treated. Don’t always jump to conclusions but also trust your gut. Would you treat someone this way? Is this the standard you set for yourself? And if the answer is no then let’s thank the universe for showing you this person is not what you asked for.
And in the event clarity is needed, don’t be afraid to reach out and ask. They are likely scared to be honest, or they wouldn’t be ghosting you so straight up ask for feedback, say “Hey, haven’t heard back from you. If you’re not interested in connecting further, it’s totally fine but please let me know so I don’t keep reaching out.” That way you put the ball squarely in their court and lead with respect and kindness. You have to set expectations for how you want to be treated, and don’t waiver. Know in your heart that you deserve more, and demand it.
When one door closes, another one opens. Instead of being bummed about being ghosted, use it as a learning opportunity to refine what you are really looking for.
