Fein married for the second time in 2008; she had followed The Rules to attract her second husband, with the exception that they dated for three years rather than two (as “The Rules II” advises) before becoming engaged.
Dating can feel a bit overwhelming at times, but the good news is that there are ways to turn it into a rewarding experience.
After all, if you put pressure on yourself to just settle down already, you’re more likely to put yourself in a position where you have to settle for less.
Remember, just because someone has different interests than you and/or isn’t your typical “type” doesn’t mean that you should automatically write him or her off.
After all, while it’s imperative that you don’t settle, it’s equally imperative that you give someone else a chance—just as you’d hope others would do for you in return. An additional rule when it comes to dating is to keep yourself out of harm’s way.
After all, your pessimistic energy will be palpable to the people around you while simultaneously affecting your behavior in general.
However, if you opt to keep an optimistic mindset, your date will feed off of your positive energy and the entire experience will be far more pleasant on all counts.
It’s also important that you look at dating as an opportunity to have some fun.
For instance, the next time you go out on a date, why not meet at a bar you’ve wanted to check out, a favorite coffee shop or even at an arcade or bowling alley?
So, whether you’re new to the dating scene or are more of a seasoned dater, it’s important to live by (and date by) these seven essential rules.
One key rule when it comes to dating is to create more opportunities to meet more potential people.
And in light of many of today’s dating apps and sites where you’re potentially meeting a stranger, it’s never been more important to remain vigilant and put your safety and well-being first.
