If you already have the book, thank you thank you thank you and please tell a friend.
In the meantime, here are the preliminary results of the survey.
The phrase “finding a man who wants to be a grown-up” came up several times.
I’ve come to realize that he is not good for me and have left twice but he has come back every time without promising me a future.
I spent 9 months with a “bad boy,” who managed to break up with me 4 times in just 9 months.
For a lot of people, it’s a seemingly never-ending dance of missed connections, nights you’ll never get back again and wondering just what’s wrong with you and why everybody else seems to have it so much easier. In fact, for many people, online dating is such a trial that they give up early on.
Even for people like me who the whole dance and the chase and the thrill of the new, there will be points when you really just want to take a step back from it for a while and catch your breath and let your ego recover from the beatings that tend to come with it. But just as when you’re trying to meet your future snugglebunny the old-fashioned way, it’s important to understand the potential headaches that come with those marathon OKCupid sessions.
Online dating takes a different attitude and skill-set than, say, making cold approaches at a bar or flirting with someone you met at a house party.
To start with, you have to rethink the way that you present yourself.
By far, the biggest challenge the respondents encountered was meeting quality men.
How do you find a guy who’s compatible, age-appropriate, and interested in a long-term committed relationship?
After the 4th time I finally smartened up and focused on moving on.
I’ve now been dating a really great guy for over 2.5 years. Which brings us to the results of the survey I did last week.
All of this subconscious presentation and filtering is lost in online dating; all we have are our words and our photos, so we have to consider how to craft as attractive a snapshot of ourselves as possible.
