Sun Virgo Sun Libra
Moon Libra Moon Sagittarius
Rising Cancer Rising Virgo
Sun sign = basic (core) personality; ego
Moon sign = inner self (the part of you that responds to habits, feelings and instinct); private personality
Rising sign = temperament; public personality
In this case scenario, he's attracted to her temperament because it speaks to his personality while she's attracted to his inner workings because it likely speaks to her personality.
Okay, that probably didn't make any sense to you, but that's okay because that was more for me to look at later more than it was for you to read.
So a lot has happened. After a falling out with my mother, a change of scene was in order and life is finally starting to look brighter. I felt like my mom sucked me into this really dark black hole with her and I had to fight my way to the light. Now that I'm here, it feels so refreshing. I replaced the Coffee Shop job with a new high value client. Now that I finally have a little room to breathe, I can fully focus on my tasks at hand and get things done.
The new change of scene also brought about a new dynamic amid the dating pool thanks to geo-dating apps. I met a boy and I kind of like him. I'm not sure to what extent but I'm curious to find out and see if there is something there. He's not my type physically but he's definitely my type personality-wise and energetically speaking. There's something there but I'm not quite sure. Maybe I just like the attention....I'm taking my time with this one.

Finances suck, paychecks from day job keep bouncing but life is still better than ever.
Gave up my social life to better myself. Re-branded myself from freelancer to Loveball Media. Started a relationship with my dream mentor. Finishing up my first book project. And ultimately decided to start my own online dating website.
For those of you who don't know this about me, I can't keep a job for the life of me because at the end of the day, I would rather be reading and writing and living an exciting life worth reading and writing about. I have had at least 20 jobs or freelance gigs over the past 10 years. I have a wide amount of experience but my loyalty tends to waver once you've done me wrong, like stunt my growth or write me bad checks to get me off your back... I'm not a collection agency, I'm trying to run a business and pay my bills here.
This last job I was hoping would be my last in the sense that I would be there for awhile, but every paycheck I get has bounced and it sucks leaving my well-being in someone else's hands. It has become painstakingly more and more clear that the solution to my problems are through entrepreneurship because at least I would be in control of my cash flow issues instead of being left in the dark about when I'll see my next paycheck.
So, to turn things around:
I gave up my social life to spend more time working on my freelance writing business since it is currently my #1 marketing tool.
I filed my DBA with the county clerk and will be publishing it in the Easy Reader in the coming weeks while I prepare to launch in January.
I applied for an editorial job at a dating company but instead found my dream mentor. I didn't get the job, but I think I landed the mentor. So far, I've passed his initial tests and have proven not to be a waste of his precious time. Crossing my fingers that he becomes more of a leading character in my professional life as a mentor.
I also recently decided to launch my own dating website to complement my book. My mission is and always has been to re-invent the dating game like it has never been done before. I already have an idea what technologies I may want to use to back it up. Ironically, the owner of a site using a technology that is 100% in line with my book's theme contacted me on my website with a story pitch. This was not a coincidence. This morning I wrote her back asking if she'd be interested in some kind of partnership, becoming each other's affiliates and entertained the idea of creating a spin-off site for online dating.
I have no idea how I am going to fund the development of my dream dating website, but the vision is there and the development process has already begun, starting with my book first, which is geared toward women but every man on the planet is going to want to read it too!
I am so excited about this new direction because it's much more in line with who I am and what I am about.
My mission is to re-invent the dating game like it has never been done before.
At the end of the day, I want to step up my game in every area of my life and I'm going to do this by helping other people step up their game first. At the end of the day, Loveball is all about turning darkness into light, sadness into joy and the pain of heartbreak into something beautiful.
My life actually kind of sucks, but I kind of need it to suck right now because the more it sucks, the more it pushes me to create more of the life I want for myself. I'd say I am well on my way there.
Visit my website at www.nikipayne.com and join the Loveball League if you share my values and want to support my mission to create the ultimate dating game of a life time. It's going to be legen -- wait for it -- dary!
