Dating for Beginners

What could be more pleasant and rewarding than being in love, having a meaningful relationship, sharing life with your perfect soul mate?

While few people dispute the power of love, many seem to have trouble finding —or keeping— that special person...

This site contains a large number of dating-related articles, sometimes written from a female perspective, sometimes a little "tongue-in-cheek" —but always with a good dose of common sense.

The first article asks you about your dating objectives, in other words: What do you want from romance?

If you give that question some thought before you enter the dating scene, your chances of finding what you are looking for are greatly improved!

Other articles offer generic dating advice, specific tips for men, and dating tips for women.

We look at the pros and cons of dating services, online dating, blind dates, and speed dating —four ways of finding a partner that are quite popular nowadays.

Of course, no matter how you decide to find that Mr. or Mrs. Right, it is important that you pay attention to dating safety.

We look at a few date ideas that can help turn your first date into a success; we also talk about the best way to behave after the first date —and during the second date, if you are fortunate enough to get one!

Finally, there are articles about specific aspects of dating, such as teen dating and senior dating; reading personals or writing a personal ad of your own; flirting and dealing with jealousy.

Happy Dating, and enjoy your stay!
