Four weeks into online dating

Posted by:

I’ve tried Brad’s method of contacting as many people as possible to improve my odds of getting a date. In my opinion, it’s not the best approach for me.

Although I have written ...

Are You Ready For a Relationship?

Posted by:

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.

The Right Way to Ask What Went Wrong

Posted by:

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.

In that article, I ended by recommending that we all look to ourselves and ask if anything we’re doing could be driving people away. One problem I’ll admit exists in this advice is ...

How Do I Approach a Woman I See Every Day But Don’t Know?

Posted by:

For me, online dating was a godsend: I always had trouble approaching women in day-to-day life. For example, if I’m remembering correctly, I only got two phone numbers at a bar in my life prior to online dating (and one of those only applies if Applebee’s counts as a bar). It was always something I overthought and the benefits of online dating propelled my ability to find and connect with people.
