A lot of singles have difficulty navigating their own conflicting views of dating. And there is this age-old dilemma for our friends/family who have life experiences, know us, and want to use it to help us from making mistakes.  But guess again, most singles see the interventions as intrusive and crossing a boundary usually creating […]

  Too many people see dating as an endgame, in which they must score their goal of finding a partner as fast as possible and getting frustrated in the process.
