10 Tips on Dating

There are a ton of horror stories out there about people meeting on the internet trying to find love, and then there are some wonderful stories about people who have met on the internet.  I am one of the wonderful stories. My husband and I met on and we are absolutely perfect for one another, so it can definitely work. The internet is an unavoidable tool these days if we want to be more efficient with our work, shopping and even sometimes play. In a previous post, I wrote about the 8 Do’s and Don’ts of Internet Dating, but today I am going to discuss something rather old fashioned. Finding love in the real world and not the cyber world.

For those of you who have done the internet dating thing, you know how frustrating it can be to weed through thousands of profiles, e-mails, photos and go on those 20 minute coffee dates.  It can be as time consuming and exhausting as making the effort to get yourself out in the world and find love in person.  Has the world of finding love changed all that much from our parents’ generation?  I can remember my mom telling me stories about how fun her dating life was in meeting guys at parties or through fix-ups or through a gang of friends.  It did not seem as complicated back then, but then again everything was probably easier.

The people around you and in your community can be one of your greatest untapped resources for meeting someone.

no i'm offended as well kemono. i spend probably about 10 minutes max at a mall and that is only for lush products. but when you see her talking about men looking for women or a women meeting a man at a golf lesson you can tell it's going to be very non inclusive.

Maybe,being so intent on "looking for a relationship/love"is the one thing holding people back from actually finding it!

am i the only who finds the phrase about easily finding women at malls, and the bit about them being too focused on shopping to notice men offensive? i'm suprised no one has mentioned this, it's kind of sad...
