When to go from dating

14 Jan

A person who constantly makes plans and then cancels them, or who can talk on the phone only at certain times of the day, either has an incredibly demanding job or is not quite as single as she claims.

Someone who truly wants to get to know you will take the time to write a personalized message responding to specific items in your profile, not send a generic cut-and-paste letter saying, “Hey girl, I saw your profile and was intrigued …” Think about the hundreds of other people who’ve gotten the same letter, and decide whether you’re willing to accept only the barest minimum of effort.What’s not okay is to expect potential suitors to conform to a long list of demands.If you see a profile that specifies a required height/weight, salary, or supermodel looks, or includes domineering phrases like “I need …” or “I won’t tolerate …,” consider whether you could ever live up to this person’s impossible standards.If that didn’t turn her off, then the subsequent emails from the same men asking why she was an ageist definitely did.It’s okay to state some basic requirements, such as whether you’re willing to date someone who smokes or who has children.
