“You’re not going to meet a guy unless you go out and make it happen.” “You need to stop trying to meet someone,” Danielle said. You should be successful, but not so successful that it scares off a man.
“The right guy always comes along when you’re not looking.” As a woman in America, I’m used to mixed signals. And dating advice is full of well-intentioned but confusing tips that often make me more bewildered than I was when I started.
Find someone in the same career as you, because they’ll understand. Marry the first person who gives you the time of day. Although many of the people I’ve gone to for dating advice are in happy, functional relationships that indicate they know what they’re doing in the love department, I just can’t take dating advice anymore.
Find someone in a completely different career field, because then they can be a neutral presence when you talk about work. There are plenty of books that advise treating relationships like business deals, and bringing the same approach to landing a husband that you’d use to win a case or hook a client.
And some of the advice, no matter how well-intentioned, failed spectacularly.
I agreed that I would go to a party and try to talk to every single guy there, even if I wasn’t attracted to him.
But there’s one problem with that approach – they fail to take actual human beings, with all their emotions and quirks, into account.
