It is such an unrealistic viewpoint to expect that you can know whether someone is your life partner from one meeting in an artificial setting.

"We all make mistakes." Nowhere is the cliché more apt than when it comes to relationships.

Enjoy speaking with each other, and share your feelings with each other.

Just because you message a woman, she does not owe you a reply.

It’s not just about you and what you’re interested in and what you do and what you like. If you don’t ask me about myself when we are messaging, I will not meet up with you for a lifetime of the “YOU” show. Guys, please stop using pictures of you and just one other woman.

There’s a stereotype that lesbians won’t stop talking about their relationships and gay men can’t start, but over-discussing is not unique to women, and emotional repression is not unique to men.

If you’ve got two people who can’t stop defining their feelings, and how the feelings of others make them feel – or two people who would rather eat a worm than talk about their relationship status – you’re going to run into problems. Make sure you fulfill all of the promises you offer each other.

And if they do get to the date stage, the woman carries that agenda to their date as well with less than satisfying results.

It may seem counterintuitive to say don’t have an agenda when dating, after all surely the whole reason we date is to meet ‘your man’ right? Ultimately and long term this is the desire, however you drastically reduce your chances of getting to that stage if you approach dating with an agenda.

But nobody wants to be a back-burner date idea or your creepy obsession.

If you look sad in all your pics, I’m going to believe you’re sad.

Something even the cool guys who are sort of good at online dating don’t seem to understand: you have to also ask me about me. If there is a woman in your picture, you don’t look available.
