12 Best Pieces of Dating Advice
My current favorite tips to help you create a healthy, fulfilling, sustainable relationship!

• Resist the urge to merge until you find out if this person has the same relationship goals as you do and that YOU are in fact a candidate! Sex does not a relationship make!
• Take care, use your common sense and set yourself up to succeed, not fail!. For example: don’t date a guy who wants kids if you know you don’t or can’t—why cause each other pain? Or gracefully decline if someone is “sleeping in the other room” from their spouse, “about to get a divorce” or is “technically” separated. Have them call you in a year when they are actually free and available!
• Make your list of non-negotiables, things that come hell or high water are deal breakers! Like smoking, drugs, polygamy, porn…whatever does NOT work for you!! (for more info on deal-breakers get a copy of Hindsight, What You Need to Know Before You Drop Your Drawers.)
• But the best advice I could ever give, which took me many years to realize and even longer to understand and put successfully into practice, is: Great relationships begin within!®

I just have to share some of the things I learned in my philosophy class. Dr. Schreibman is a brilliant teacher, and you won't believe what I'm finding out!: In ancient western civilization (700-300 BCE) women were relegated to three primary roles: wife, slave or prostitute. During this period they were further regarded as men's legal wards. ... Read more
