Dating by the numbers is often misunderstood. It isn't about going out every night. It isn't about looking, hunting, or hoping. The numbers game is a service we give to ourselves, that eventually allows us the ability to recognize our true mate... when we meet them.
Just because a romantic relationship expires doesn't mean a new connection can't eventually evolve. Becoming friends with an ex can be complex, but not impossible.
