We did The Rules, wrote The Rules, and have helped millions of women do The Rules, too. Whether you were recently hurt or haven’t been in a relationship for a while, you want immediate gratification and compensation for all the pain and heartache of recent years or even decades.
It used to be that you went to singles events or bars, or you might have been paired up by family, friends, or coworkers. The last time I was on online dating I met someone who I went out with for four months.
It was a crapshoot with lousy odds, considering the amount of time, energy, and effort expended compared with the number of people with whom you came into contact. There are now dating sites for Christians, Catholics, Jews, seniors, single parents, even the "casual" dater, and certainly more to come. Don’t let the anxious thoughts take over your mind. While it was difficult for me, I can say that for each person I meet, I find out something more about myself and what I want.
If you are single and just entering the world of internet dating, here are a few suggestions: Finally, dating sites are not panaceas; they are just another way to connect with other people. Push away all the ‘What if I…’ type questions; Remind yourself of the positives. A first date has the potential for future love and happiness. That, I think, is the most important key for finding someone and for a lot of things in life.
Go online, sure, but remember to bring your honesty, integrity, values, and principles with you. The first time I began, I was a beginner at it and I was living at home and I didn't have a lot of confidence and it didn't work out.
We put two and two together, and wrote and wrote, and that’s how The Rules were born!
