Seeing ourselves and others as commodities makes dating stressful and no fun. So instead, why not see the date for what it is: a meeting of two people, trying to connect.
I believe that when you take initiative to do something you want to do, good things will happen. They might not be the exact thing you set out to obtain (for example, you might meet someone online who turns out to be a really good friend), but they will add to your life regardless.
I'm too old to fake it (yes, I mean that in every way you think) anymore, so in this "adult" phase of my dating life, I've decided to approach it entirely differently by promising five things to myself.
Don is the ultimate bad boy: slick, sophisticated, rich and fun. He's also a terrible husband who is only totally committed to himself. There are lots of men out there in real life just like Jon Hamm's character. Let's face it; If you're like most women, you probably love the infamous bad boy.
If anything, being in this city will help you realize one thing: You're going to be just fine.
The new casual dating app Tinder has been all over the news lately, so I wanted to find out for myself what all the rage was all about. So, I downloaded the app and loaded it up. It's like the Twitter of dating.
How many times have you heard yourself say, "He's just not my type" before you've even gotten a chance to know a man? Sure, it's hard to think outside of the box, but if your relationships are causing more grief than good in your life, then it's time to end this pattern.

No relationship comes without risks or baggage for that matter. I would have missed out on a life-changing relationship if I made his single dad status a deal-breaker. Being in a relationship with a man who has taken on raising kids makes my life that much richer and rewarding, mostly in unexpected ways.
You can control the amount of time and effort you spend trying to meet people. You can control your behavior on your dates -- your promptness, the way you dress and how you treat these gentle strangers. But you can't control whether the two of you fall in love.
It can be awkward to end a date with a person you don't plan on seeing again. What are your parting words? How do you communicate finality? You don't want to give false hope, so next time give these a try.
We've been told through movies, music and literature that we're incomplete if we're alone. Only the presence of "another" can alleviate the void we feel inside and make us feel whole. In actuality, we feel the void when we're not aligned with ourselves.
Flirty texts and emails may never become physical, but that doesn't mean you're not having an affair.
One of the scariest things about dating, especially after 50, is having to worry about how members of the opposite sex will perceive you, especially when you're comparing yourself to the person you were when you were 20.
