I really wanted him to like me so I spent hours cooking a gourmet dinner and creating a romantic ambiance. Crying after only 3 dates -- what was wrong with me?Again, I thought the evening was magical and we were destined to be together. To ease the pain of rejection, I told myself he must have had a girlfriend.We met at a restaurant and during the course of the evening I kept telling myself how perfect he was for me. In my mind I was already envisioning the three of us enjoying fun family events and holidays.I was so filled with hope and promise for the future.Have you ever wondered why you have great first and second dates, but can’t seem to find a fulfilling long-term relationship with anyone?Last week I spoke with Vanessa, a single-mother in her early thirties.
I’m a divorced mother with two young children, but I am not looking for someone to “rescue” me.
This may not seem like a problem to some women, but for me it is.
When I am dating, I like to really take my time and get to know someone before I put any “name” on what we’re doing.
As anyone who's spent time on dating sites knows, they can be time consuming. Online dating breaks the romance rules on so many levels can one more kink really hurt the process?
A growing trend, particularly amongst busy businessmen, is to hire a third party to write their profile description and manage introductory correspondence. To my mind, speed dating is possibly the most unromantic thing in the world but if two people meet and fall in love because of a speed dating event, who am I to question their relationship?
It’s just having fun with someone, getting to know him, and see where things go.
