Why Online Dating Isn’t for Pessimists

Ten years ago, some people thought that those who used online dating had given up on optimism. Maybe they were “different” for not wanting to wait around for Mr. or Mrs. Right to roll up into their lives. Today, in dear old 2014, people who use online dating are seen as optimists, as being in control of their own destiny and as taking charge of their own love life.

In this post, we’re talking about why online dating isn’t the place for pessimists. Better yet, we’re sharing how online dating is filled with people who would rather find someone online than trek through bars, clubs and the usual offline hangouts looking for love.

What You’re Saying VS. What He’s Hearing in Your Relationship

We’re all familiar with the old adage “men are from Mars and women are from Venus,” and it has become the cultural red herring for explaining the differences between genders. But how often does this idea actually make its way into our relationships? Well, perhaps more often that you think. Sometimes we think our significant other is hard of hearing, severely confused, and maybe sometimes just silly. Always remember however that communication is a two way street and when you’re saying something but they are hearing something different, there’s always a way to find common ground.

4 Major Online Dating Mistakes You Might be Making

It can be tempting to go a little overboard when it comes to your online dating profile. Then, it can be even more tempting to take things from “sort of true” to “definitely not true” when it comes time to message a hot match. These are just two online dating mistakes that could a) leave you unsuccessful and b) seriously deter great, high quality matches. 

With online dating, honesty and clarity matter. You’re putting yourself out there and trying to meet someone amazing. It’s important to remember that your “someone amazing” is doing the same… and they don’t want to waste time on a profile filled with fibs, or messaging someone who tends to share bigger-than-life tall tales.

Relationship Advice for Women Who Have Been Cheated On… From Women Who Have Been Cheated On

We asked women who have been cheated on in the past what advice they’d give to women who are currently dealing with a recent breakup or a stressful relationship because of cheating. Here’s what they had to say:

Sarah—“Listen to your intuition.”

I would have all of the evidence in the world, except his confession and still want to give my ex the benefit of the doubt. It’s not easy to accept something you know will break your heart. Don’t make the same mistake I did. 9 times out 10, my intuition has been right. If you feel like a guy is cheating on you that’s because he probably is; and if not, then there’s something he’s not telling you about how he feels about your relationship. Whichever the case, do exactly what your gut is telling you to do, do exactly what you would do if your intuition was right. I promise that you won’t regret it and you’ll be happier in the long run.
