Rhiannon: What’s the bigger dilemma, going through a dry dating spell or having the pressure of planning something exciting for that big anniversary? Our relationship pros, have the answers in today’s Ask Matt and Tamsen. Tamsen: Hi everybody, Matt and Tamsen here, your love consultants answering your questions about love, sex, dating and relationships. We’re consulting people, right? Matt: Yes, and we are in love, so we’re love consultants, got it? Tamsen: Alright, let’s get started, the first question, “Dear Matt and Tamsen, I’ve been married to the same woman for the last ten years. She is in every way my soul mate. I like to celebrate our upcoming anniversary with style, can you give me ideas on how to make this the most special anniversary yet. I love you.” He’s so sweet. Matt: Wow, yeah, he’s the man, I think you got to go all out, 10 year anniversary, I think that you need to call her boss, make sure that she’s good to go from maybe a Thursday to a Sunday, get her Thursday and Friday off. Tamsen: Matt only knows that because he did it once so he’s going to brag to you about that. Matt: Yes, I think you need to get a car service and send it to her work with her bags already all packed, I think you need to take her to some place she’s always been talking about. I don’t care how much it costs, borrow from your friends if you have to or the bank, it’s very important and I think you need to make it as romantic as possible in every single way. Tamsen: I got to tell you though, already from writing this question to us and saying that she’s your soul mate and that you want to celebrate it in style, I think that’s already going to that place, you know what I mean, I think it’s already making it really, really special. Matt: Well, its how he feels but she has to know that by doing something too. Tamsen: Yeah, absolutely, I would do something out of the ordinary, though, and I would not ask her this question which I’ve heard plenty of times, “Hey, what do you want to do for your birthday? What do you want to do for our anniversary?” Just make sure that you take control and you move it forward and have it to be sentimental in some way. Matt: Sentimental is a good point. See how I backed her up with her issue, it’s a very good point. And I think you need to buy her something there so she’ll never forget where she got it or when you have given it to her. It’s very important, I got all the answers. Tamsen: Remember that for our ten year, please. Next question, “I’m a single girl in the city, everywhere I look I see happy couples are driving me crazy. What can I do to calm down my date deprived mind?” Matt: Focused on yourself. All that glitters is not gold. You don’t know what’s going on with these couples, they could actually hate one another and look like they’re having a good time. Tamsen: They could be writing us a question. Matt: No, just kidding, seriously, I think that you should concentrate on yourself, get yourself in great condition, get yourself well versed in culture, improve yourself when you’re alone. Then by the time you look up, there’ll be three guys crazy about you. Tamsen: I also think that you shouldn’t think that being single is a problem I think that the summer is an exciting time. I think there’s a lot of newness to it all and I think concentrating on yourself and enjoying the fact you’re single is a great thing. Don’t think that you’re dating deprived. I don’t think that’s such a big deal, I think you can go out with your friends and have as good as a time. Matt: Don’t even focused on it, just have a good time and again next thing you’ll know you have two guys who are nuts about you. Rhiannon: As always, great advice guys, thanks.
