So when something happens that seems like it could be bad it’s easy to assume and fly off the handle.But jumping to conclusions and confronting the person just increases the chance that everything will blow up in your face.It’s also normal to be excited and want to tell everyone about your new relationship.But just like the obsessive calling/texting thing, asking your new boo everyday what you are or when he/she is going to commit is a little much. With the election, we hear how candidates need to "frame the issue better." At work, our boss tells us to "frame the problem differently." While I'm listening to a guided meditation, the voice of Andy Puddicombe, an ex Buddhist monk, soothingly tells me, "A big part of [meditation] is how we frame the exercise.By changing your outlook, the mind softens." So I thought, OK, if framing is such a powerful force, how can we leverage it in the world of dating?I am here to find out if old-fashioned speed dating might hold something over the app experience.It's an odd set up: a PR stunt demonstrating the luxury of the Virgin Trains first class experience, and the nippy speed at which it covers the distance between London and York (a little over two hours).

From a biological perspective, "the most important thing we do with our lives is to find a mating partner—to send our lineage to the next generation," says Fisher. "For years, I went out with a man who was really slow. The best way to reframe, according to meditation instructor Aaron Dias, is to focus on mindfulness—a term that gets tossed around a lot these days but rarely in the context of dating. Sit across from him or her and "notice every time your mind wanders to your phone, and then gently bring the mind back.
"So the brain is built to overlook things." Scientists suspect that this positive framing stems from a chunk of the brain called the medial prefrontal cortex, which Fisher describes as "a brain region that's linked with positive illusions.'" It also makes us less likely to notice or care about someone's faults. This means "being able to sit across from someone—it could be a first date—and to be fully in that person's presence. This helps take away all these frames, and it gives you access to a greater, deeper experience," says Dias. Keep an open curiosity." You can also practice in other parts of your life.
The last I time I took an East Coast train from Edinburgh, a man opposite me told me – once I’d finished putting my make up on – that I looked ‘poppin’.
A few chat up lines later; he suggested we cuddle after two older ladies mistook us for a couple in love.
