Dating the same guy twice
Online dating can produce a relationship, but if you’re only swiping in an app that’s intent is based around casual encounters, you’re likely going to be feel disappointed. This is bad because playing games don’t work in good relationships.
“There are many sites, and they are pretty clear what their purpose is. If you want to have fun, there is nothing wrong with that, but if you are looking for something serious and long term, don’t set yourself up for hurt and failure,” she explains. You are likely to turn someone off rather than seem mysterious and alluring.
If you value honesty and integrity, you need to act this way as well to attract someone with those qualities,” she explains.

At the same token, don’t have a laundry list of must haves, you will never find anyone that meets all those criteria,” Rahbar says.
It’s comforting to place any of the responsibility of meeting the right person out of your hands and give it to the universe, but as the experts explain, meeting a partner requires some effort.

My single friends and I often joke about the advice we’re constantly given by our parents, our coupled-up friends and basically, anyone who hears yes, we’re ‘still single’ and yes, ‘still looking.’ The words of wisdom are never delivered with any malicious intent and really, are meant to raise our spirits and ensure we don’t adopt a mostly-bitter attitude toward finding our life partner.
But the kicker that’s humorous – especially if you’ve been dating for quite some time, like I have – is that all advice seems to contradict itself.
