I get it. I've been there. You're a busy smart woman with a full life who isn't sure she even has time to date.
Dating online and in real life— setting up profiles, responding to messages, attending singles-type events, and actually going on dates — can be like another full-time job.
This is why it's important to have a dating strategy.
If you follow these 3 essential tips, you will weed out time wasters very fast.
First of all:
1. Let a man ask you out first. Men know what they like. They have types. If they aren't moving a relationship forward by asking you out, cut your losses and move on to the one who asks you out.
2. Hold out for Saturday night dates. If a man isn't with you on Saturday nights, it means he's on the prowl for someone else or with someone else. (Exceptions are for work and family situations). Not all men get courtship — they may be spoiled — in which case you can subtly train a man to ask you out for Saturday night.
3. Don't see a man again if he asks you to pay or split the bill. When a man is very interested in you, and he's a good guy, he will pay. He will want to woo and impress you, and paying for you is a big part of this. A man who feels that special thing for a woman wants to provide and protect her. He wants to feed her.
If a man makes it through all these three hoops after several consistent Saturday night dates, this means you have a serious contender.
