"The Rules" Rethought

nitial; ">Open your mind. Expand beyond your limited horizons of dating knowledge and limitations. Think beyond archetypes; don’t be quick to judge and date outside of your comfort zone. Think beyond bars, parties and online as the only options to fall in like. Use your peripheral vision to meet men; there is no wrong place to Mr. Right. Think beyond timelines. Abolish the premise that you must be married by 30 or have to date someone for two years before getting engaged; think in experience lines instead.

Be open for business. From having an approachable attitude and demeanor to dressing for dating success (i.e. never stepping foot out of the house in a housecoat and curlers), allow yourself to say “yes” to the possibility of love at all times. Be prepared attitudinally, emotionally and physically to take and give applications anytime, anywhere.
