Being single affords you the chance to get to know all sorts of people. When you're not in a rush to find "the one" you can enjoy learning new things from the men you date. You don't have to limit yourself to types who fit the specific criteria of what you're looking for in a life partner. We encourage all singles to date as many different types of people as pique your interest and curiosity.
We're not saying you have to settle down into serious relationships with each or get intimate with every one. We are saying: Don't let the opportunity of expanding your perspective and horizon pass you by. These are the men we'd all like to date at least once during our singlehood years.

A…Fireman. This is ultimate civic hero type. He's strong and a wears a protective suit because his job is so dangerous. Plus, he rides around in a big red firetruck saving lives and homes and cats that get stuck in trees. This no-fear gent boldly looks death right in the eye every time he heads into a flaming out-of-control fire. And he puts his life on the line all in the name of protecting other people's loved ones.
A…CIA Agent. Think Bond. James Bond. This secret agent, sleuth-type can be trusted with the nation's secrets and has all sorts of MacGyver-type moves up his sleeve. He's resourceful, smart as a whip and a rapid-fire judge of a person's character. You may not know what the heck he really does every day, who he is dealing with or the burden of top-secret information swimming around in his noggin. But you'll enjoy helping him take a break from the heaviness of his work.
A…Chef. A man who has been trained to cook professionally and is concocting new taste sensations every day in the kitchen? Score. We'll have an order of that. A chef is a man who is creative (ever dreaming up new food and spice combinations), sensual (a man who can take pleasure in the textures and tastes of food understands the power of the senses) and skilled with his hands (he can mince and dice like nobody's business). Plus, every women adores a man who not only can cook but actually enjoys cooking.Dating A Single Dad: What It's Really Like
