For many single adults, there has been a history of dating one person, seeing if it will lead to a close significant relationship, and taking the relationship as far as possible.
After it ends, the cycle then repeats: find and date just one new person.
It turns out, the secret to finding love and commitment is not committing too soon.
So many of my clients ask me whether dating more than one man at a time is a wise idea.
Communicate your expectations and hopes and get on the same dating page.
It's not just Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore who look amazing and decades younger than they actually are.
Or at least be very aware of what you share online - especially in the social media arena.
Frequently, men would drop out after one, two or three dates.
In keeping with the purpose of dating, we advocate a conservative, defensive posture since it is our experience that there are many more people that don’t know how to date in a healthy manner than those that do.
It is dangerous and risky to place yourself in a vulnerable situation until you really know who you are with.
It is heartbreaking to see them make the same mistakes over and over again.
All too often, I see friends continually devastated by their dating experiences. Don’t give them your power by allowing yourself to feel bad.
