How to Prepare Yourself for the Perfect Relationship

The process of dating can be one of the best personal growth experiences you can participate in. How? You may ask. First of all, not only can the dating process help develop self-awareness, it can also prepare you to be in a relationship by putting yourself out there and meeting new people. That act alone takes courage.

If you’re serious about getting into a real relationship, it pays to use your time and emotional energy wisely. You simply can’t afford to invest weeks (or longer) in back and forth texting with men you’re not meeting. Instead, learn how to turn the text messages into phone conversations. Once you’ve spoken on the phone once or twice, you can schedule a time to meet in person in the reasonably near future. I promise that using this one tip will help you avoid so many undesirable situations, such as ending up with guys who are; married, dating tons of other women, catfishing, too busy with their jobs, kids, travel, video games, whatever, to have a real relationship with […]
