There are many difficulties in online dating and finding that special someone can be hard.
I recently met a woman online. She approached me, and I thought, wow this could be good. We were only talking for a day when she gave me her number.

Before you jump online and start filling out a dating profile and joyfully browsing the singles in your area, it would be wise to take a moment to assess your readiness to enter into the world of dating. It is not uncommon for people to jump blindfolded into a relationship they are not truly ready for, nor is it uncommon for people to connect with someone who is not currently capable of offering all that a relationship requires. In both ...Continue Reading →
In my last article, I wrote about a pattern I see in giving dating advice: one where a person assumes everyone they meet is doing something wrong where in reality they are the one creating the situation.
