Getting Serious About Your Search for THE ONE

In an otherwise perfect world the person you were meant to be with is a friend, colleague or associate that you are already in contact with and you’ll just have to realize what’s already there and fall in love with each other. In the real world, you’ll have to search high and low, travel great distances, conquer your fears, and dodge vicious impostors to find Mr. or Ms. Right.

If you are specifically looking for a serious relationship be very clear what you what you want. But listen to your date carefully when you ask, where would they like to see things go in the long run? There is no way of asking this without scaring someone away. However, this is something you must know. It's also really important to know, if you are looking for a specific type of serious relationship, like an open relationship, or monogamous.

Once you know what you want and you know what they want, is it a match? Will you have to jump through fiery hoops and perform magical rituals in the moonlight in order to have your way? Do you think the person is so drop dead hot, you will be glad to do anything for just the tiniest chance to be with them? Because if you do, THIS IS THE TIME TO END THINGS!

If you decide to stay and settle, this will be the moment you'll always regret not walking away from the relationship.

NEVER EVER SETTLE for alternatives! Nothing for the time being, nothing to get you through the month, etc. Be firm. No matter how goodlooking your date may look remember that nothing is as gorgeous as your heart. Don't get it trampled on by someone who isn't on your level! That’s a big dating mistake… dating someone to get you through the drought.

WAIT for Mr. or Mrs. Right. They could be passing you by as you are still tangled up with Mr. or Mrs. Right Now. We can’t stress that fact enough. BE PATIENT and BE PERSISTENT!
