How Our Disastrous Approach to Dating Results in Unsatisfying and Even Unsuccessful Relationships.

image by Aron Visuals from

As a culture at large, we do not really understand how to date. Nor do we understand much about healthy, emotionally mature, long-term, happy love.

Infatuation = Love. Not so much.

Dating long-distance is not a sound method of getting to know someone in the beginning.

We choose partners based on shallow traits.

We base too much of our interest in someone on their looks.

We commit too quickly.

We have sex too soon.
