“Mi Media Naranja” which means: ‘One’s sweetheart, one’s beautifully perfect other half’ when used to describe a loved one in Spanish, is the title for Amy Spencer’s new book, Meeting your Half Orange: An Utterly Upbeat Guide to Using Dating Optimism to Find Your Perfect Match.
According to the author, one can take the dating concept and transform it into a unique and positive experience by simply helping the average single ‘sow their orange seed’ into “fruit-ion” -or their ideal relationship. From Spencer’s own experiences in life, this book is intended to provide optimism and hope within the souls of the unattached, thus offering an opportunity to gain not only a partner, but a soul mate.
The advice in Spencer’s book so closely parallels my own dating path that I had to write a post about it! For years, I had been focusing on the negative aspects of dating (and men), always finding a reason why I didn’t like a guy or found something wrong with him. What I didn’t realize is that this negative attitude was transparent to others. Once I decided to change my way of thinking, and adopt a more positive attitude–Voila–dating became so much fun. Having an optimistic outlook is the key message that Spencer delivers in her book. The only thing I’d like to add is “watch out” because within months, a man who is now my husband swarmed in and swept me away. This book is a great guide for singles.
