Modern day dating is tricky. Perhaps, more of a challenge today than ever in history.

Why, with so many dating apps making it easier to meet people, has it become increasingly difficult?

I believe that because it has become so easy to find, talk to, and meet up with someone, there is little risk involved and therefore less effort to create real connection.

You meet up with someone to make small talk for a few hours hoping to convince them that you are a fascinating, charming person. Secretly, you are hoping to discover the same about them.

I have dedicated my life to helping women create more self-love and confidence, which is extremely important in dating.

Below is a list of 84 conversation and thought provoking questions to create real connection and help you in your quest for true love.
