I have come to look at dating as a competitive sport. It is like job interview, we post our profiles and wait for someone to pick us out of the crowd to see if we are a good fit. Height, weight, hair color, age, and children all play a major role in if you’ll get the job. It’s a tough market out there and matching with Mr. Right could mean years of interviews.
Sometimes ideas to help ask someone out to some might be romantic and to others could be considered silly. Then again you might still stand out and you could be remembered. It might be a great way to start a conversation. How about taking a photo of your hand and mail it to them. Include a message such as “Let’s hold hands or “Let’s walk hand and hand on the beach”. Then you can go on a walk on the beach and you could try this in the moonlight. This would also be an interesting way to actually ask a special someone out while at the beach. Not only would this be an ice-breaker but you could also evaluate if the date can potentially turn into a long term relationship at some point.
Keep your emotions in check. Someone may seem great at first, but don’t rush to meet them. You may want to set yourself a timeframe before you actually meet someone new in person.
With the explosion of www.couplefyt.com sites has come a virtual smorgasbord of choices. There are free sites… I don’t recommend those but if money is a real concern, they are better than nothing. There are the large paid sites with many and varied features like chat, IM and even matching using profiles. There are the less expensive paid sites with few features. There are special interest sites for almost any thing you can think of…outdoor enthusiasts, couch potatoes, religious, non-religious, gays, lesbians like I said almost anything you can think of.
Don’t date until your divorce is final. You’re not ready yet, and won’t be a suitable mate for anyone. Additionally, this will confuse your grieving process for the loss of your relationship. You may feel lonely and want to try dating, even casually. I strongly advise against it. Make friends and rely on platonic, supportive friendships to ease your loneliness.
If these compatibility test were taken honestly and really worked how does an independent college educated women with a solid career and a child match with a fast food worker who still lives in his mothers basement?
Going through a reputable dating service or a speed dating event, will help you find the right man to have a solid relationship with and spend your life with.
