Ten years ago when we were dating there was no internet, there was no
Fast forward to three years later, I get engaged and my parents threw me an engagement party.One of the other mistakes I have found that really makes a difference is we are all expecting to be liked, that’s what everyone wants and the best way to get someone to like you is to genuinely like them first. Successful dating really starts and ends in your mind.If you are looking for what’s good in that person—I’m not saying this person is going to be your husband or your soul mate—but when you walk in think, “I’m going to find what’s good about this person and I’m going to have fun,” then the dates start to become more fun. You get the third date, the fourth date, the guys don’t vaporize. One of the biggest problems that men complain about with women, especially with professionally successful women, is that they have taken on more of a masculine veneer and they want to talk about how successful they are at work and all of these great things they’ve done at work, they have their Blackberries on and they are talking about these big deals.So when we sleep with them too early a lot of the times we stunt that emotional connection.Haven’t you had a guy grow on you that you weren’t attracted to in the beginning? We are sparked emotionally and that’s when physical chemistry develops. They are like, “Why did he say yes instead of yeah with an exclamation point and a smiley face? I love the French impressionists so he took me to the Art Institute for some fake exhibit that he said was going on.
