It’s Time to Give Up On Mr. Perfect

Still looking for Mister Perfect?While browsing a list of handsome guys on a dating site, it’s easy to get whisked away by the idea of finding that perfect man who looks good, makes a ton of money and gives you everything you could ever ask for in life. The reality, unfortunately, is that everyone has faults. Yes, everyone. Even your best friend’s seemingly-perfect husband has faults.

It’s natural to hope for that perfect, fault-less man while you’re first getting your feet wet in the dating world, but there comes a time and place to realize that Mr. Perfect doesn’t exist.

Watch What You Say: Three Things to Avoid Saying On a Date

There are certain things you'd better not say on a dateIt’s no secret that men and women are often very different when it comes to how they interpret verbal and physical cues. In many ways, we’re simply wired differently. This is one reason why the first few dates are always a little nerve-wracking. It’s easy for both the man and woman to say the wrong things or send the wrong signals.

1. “It’s up to you.”/”I don’t care.”

Dating An Older Man – What You Need To Know

Would you date an older man?Are you curious how it’s like dating an older man? It can be quite a world of difference, especially if you’re used to going out with men having practically the same age as you. “Older” does not only mean that the guy is a couple of years ahead of you. Usually, it connotes at least five years, even more.

Most women start out with dating guys their age. It is easier to find things in common, and to do things together, because of the shared interests. Later on, however, women start looking for more maturity and stability, especially as they near the age when they begin thinking of having their own families. No longer is it just all about the fun and the romance anymore. The desire for a more rational and practical relationship takes shape as well, and this, they believe can be found with somebody older.
