My co-host Steve and I did this video over 4 years ago but since it is “throw back Thursday” I wanted to share this with you. Do I still feel the same way today and would I answer with the same comments?
I think men and women are pretty complicated in 2016 and how we portray ourselves out in the dating world; but when it comes right down to it we all want the same thing – to be loved and respected. It sounds so simple doesn’t it? Unfortunately it is not an easy accomplishment for many people.
We’ve changed with how we interact and seem to be a lot more judgy than we were in the past. Both men and women will have to change things up in a big way if they want to have a reciprocated loving partnership down the road.
Courtship now consists of one date and if we don’t like what we see right away, we are off to a new conquest swipe on Tinder or some other dating site. Self esteem issues are affecting more people than ever due to daily online or first date rejections.
There is something to say for the old school way of dating! Boy meets girl in person, flirts a little, asks her out, kisses her at the front door after their first date, he calls her the next day and sets up the second date!
Now there are so many rules and expectations that people don’t know what to do anymore!
Due to unrealistic checklists for both men and women, many potential relationships are sabotaged before they are even given a chance! As I have written in other posts, both sexes are starting to get defensive, jaded and angry because they can’t find the love they are looking for. Why is that? Because they are too picky and judgemental!
We all have flaws and we all have great attributes. Your checklist needs to be revised & should only consist of a few important things:
- Loving & affectionate
- Chemistry (emotional and sexual)
There will always be a few non-negotiable things that are really important to you but they should not consist of shallow demands. Let’s all lighten up a little and learn to “like”each other again.
We are all great & we all have something to offer. Don’t look for ways to extinguish your happiness; look for positive ways to ignite it! <3
