One day, I decided that I was ready to get myself married. In order to accomplish that, I had to make some radical changes. Given the fact that I spend day in and day out listening to what men like and don't like when it comes to dating, I already knew the "secret sauce" for getting married... now, I just needed to practice what I preached.
I hate to admit it, but I truly believe that dating apps have ruined dating forever. Thinking back to my college days, I only wish that it were still the norm to meet people in person. Now, people are looking to date those with the hottest photos, the best jobs -- basically anyone who looks good on paper.
"Play it safe" is the oldest rule in the book, especially when it comes to online dating. While there are a certain set of rules to follow in order to stay safe during the cyber interaction portion of your online dating endeavors, there are entirely different guidelines that pertain to staying safe once you decide to take your relationship offline.
