Dating after a long break is tough under any circumstance. Whether you've just gotten out of a long term relationship with your girlfriend or you've been focusing on other aspects of your life, the rules of dating change as time goes by. As a newly single woman, you're ready to mingle.. but the problem is you don't know how. If you've been out of the dating pool for awhile, it's completely understandable that you find it scary to step back in. However, you shouldn't let that stop you from finding love and having the time of your life.
There's no question that the older you get, the pressure to be in a committed relationship or get married by a certain age will pretty much have a constant presence in your life. But do you really have to have a boyfriend on your birthday just because the big 4-0 [insert fabulous age] has rolled around? Contrary to popular belief, your shelf life has not expired.
In today's modern age, it's no surprise that texting has become a major part of the dating game. A lot of people have different communication styles but what happens if your style clashes with your partner's? What do you do if he only texts you and never wants to talk on the phone.
When you hit it off with someone you've just met online, it's natural to want to text them and pick up the conversation and flirting where you left off. But when it comes to dating fails, that's the first of many problems. If you've been wondering why you're not having any luck at online dating and don't know what to do to get them to call you back, you're going to have to listen up.
When it comes to dating in the modern age, the vast amount of rules we tend to listen to and follow without question makes finding the one incredibly stressful. Just how many dates should you go on before you have sex? Despite being one of the most popular questions asked by Ok Cupid and the rest of the online dating world, pinning down the answer isn't as easy as simply checking off an option.
Being rejected is a bummer, right? No one likes being romantically interested and then jilted. But is it possible that being rejected actually makes you stronger and more ready for a relationship?
So you filled out an online dating profile and yet there has not been a flood of emails. Is it possible that you're doing something wrong? If you want to score that first date, you're going to have to go a bit deeper than saying that you're just as comfortable in a pair of sweats as you are in a tuxedo, Mr. Gatsby.
One of the biggest fears that people have about online dating is whether their potential love interests are misrepresenting themselves. The scourge of catfishing has been all over the news but is it really such a problem?
