But you can meet a great man who is perfect for you.When you go online and read men's profiles, you create a picture of who a man is based on the words he's written and the pictures he's posted.

You don't play and you don't just hang with guys as friends like you did when you were younger.

In fact, when you make such a fast decision, you often miss a lot of guys who could have made great friends to hang out with, or possibly boyfriends if you'd given them the chance..you did when you were younger.

You didn't think twice about putting in the time getting to know each other before deciding...

Yes, I'd like to spend the rest of my life with this man. You go on a coffee date and before the coffee is even finished, you've figured out whether or not he's right for you.

Believing you'll just know he's the right guy for you when he shows up Remember when you were a teenage girl with stars in your eyes when it came to boys? You didn't feel the pressure you feel today to find 'the one' on your first interaction together.

You spent time enjoying each other's company at school or at work and you laughed and played as you experienced the things you both loved in life.

In addition, the very concept of what was attractive was also drilled into our young brains, and unfortunately, what was considered attractive was informed by racism, ableism, ageism, and cis-gendered heterosexuality.

Even more unfortunate, the competition increased as girls became women.

You come home feeling depressed and hopeless about ever finding your guy. I'm going to meet someone new and interesting today. Plus, it will keep you from making snap judgments about who you think a man is before you've met.

And this is about the time you start thinking....there are no good guys out there. Persistence is the name of the game when it comes to dating.

You just need to work the dating system...putting yourself in situations so you can find him and he can find you.
