For over five years, I have read and researched the confusing and complicated world of modern love.
As a writer, I produce relationship articles for publications and investigate online dating apps. I created this platform for ambitious romantics who want to upgrade their love lives.
The Style of Laura Jane is not about uncovering the secrets to finding the one, nor is it a site claiming that love can be found through becoming more elegant, feminine or mysterious.
This is a place for women who want to lead extraordinary lives with exciting, romantic relationships.
Insecure and lonely, I spent most of my twenties running after men. I went through a phase of dating successful guys who I thought could boost my self-esteem, followed by many dates on dating apps that led to little passion.
The more I failed at love, the more my self-esteem suffered. The inability to trust myself led to poor relationships – both with partners, friends and myself.
All the dating experts I researched told me the answer was in their downloadable booklet. I needed to learn how to ‘play it cool’, wait for a response and not act too desperate. What I now know is that love is not found through playing games or mirroring an effortless French woman.
When you make confident decisions based on your values, you will uncover what you’re after. And you will learn how to create unforgettable experiences.
I am currently in a happy relationship where I no longer crave passion and romance.
The Style of Laura Jane focuses on these five key values:
1. Confident decisions
Not consistently asking family and friends for their opinions. I encourage you to use tools and techniques such as this blog to help you decide what to do. Rather than following someone else’s judgment.
Embracing your own style, beauty and image. Not trying to mould yourself into an ideal partner. There is a difference between aiming to be the most ideal version of yourself vs trying to change who you are – I am all about the former.
Spontaneity and thoughtful gestures. Love letters, a bouquet of flowers, an old, cobbled street with a hidden coffee shop or an al fresco bar.
4. Mind-blowing passion
Everyone deserves the wild intimacy that makes sex enjoyable and thrilling.
5. Dolce Vita
In other words, the ‘sweet life’. This is about pleasure, simplicity and luxury. Not waiting around for someone or attempting to go out of your way to make an impression.
If you feel unsatisfied with your love life, you might be:
- Struggling to find your ideal partner.
- Constantly dating the wrong people.
- Wondering whether to stay in your current relationship.
- Starved of romance, passion and excitement.
- Feeling insecure, lonely and bored.
I want you to have friends that don’t drain your energy, partners who add abundance to your already satisfying life. I also want you to have enough self-love that you can navigate after a breakup or as a single woman.
