How to Get a Date Worth Keeping

Take your time to discover who you are. Do not limit yourself to a type of man or woman. Get healthy yourself first in order to attract someone worth keeping. Be yourself from the beginning, and set boundaries. Do not SETTLE.
Single men and women, please pay attention! Dating is not about marriage. It is a process of getting to yourself and others without any romantic involvment. Romantic involvement clouds the process of getting to know the real person. In fact, this is one of the reasons that we are constantly dating but not finding a real KEEPER.

As a divorcee, it is a challenge to get back into the dating scene after a broken heart. Not to mention, that the rules of dating has changed alot.This book, How to Get a Date Worth Keeping, was written by Dr. Henry Cloud, a Christian, after he heard some single, attractive, and successful women talking about having a lack of dates. He discovered that most of these women went the same places every day which turned into the same places for a whole YEAR. How can you meet someone under these circumstances? In this book, he challenges YOU to go on many dates and suggest that you (THE WOMEN) initate the conversations. After reading this book, I discovered that we have unrealistic expectations of others which are needs that we should meet for ourselves. To end, for some of us, it is our preferences that are preventing us from finding a date worth keeping.
