Love and romance—such a great feeling. The face-to-face meeting: looking your best, a secluded table set for two, a little wine to loosen up the nerves and conversation. Dining etiquette, laughter, shared interest, flirtatious language. An affirming touch, then holding hands, the goodnight kiss. Sleepless nights, all-consuming thoughts of what could be, finally, it’s your turn—chemistry is happening.
Long, late-night phone calls, sharing all your favorite things—even your color. The one you’ve been waiting for; the one who understands you, brightens your day with a smile, a laugh, a touch. Ahhh…the touching! It’s the best part—the icing on the wedding cake! Wedding?
Are you telling me, you haven’t talked about marriage?
It's been months! What have you been talking about, besides sex?
Now I understand why you are still single.
If you can relate, you’re not alone, in fact, this is the way we date, and date, and date and date. Some last months, and some last years. You have dating experience—lots of it—yet never experience the relationship you desire. In fact, you’re now a little worse for wear and considering giving up on your marital dreams altogether.
Your failed efforts aren’t entirely your fault—you’ve been misled.
A popular way to get rich quick and be admired by many is to visit a casino, at least that’s what the commercials imply. No experience required, you just need a little luck! These casino commercials show everyone dressed up, experiencing romance, and winning jackpots of cash. I challenge you to find such a place.
Deceptive tactics are used everywhere. We romanticize many facets of life. Just because it’s shown to be popular and successful, doesn’t make it so. If it were, they wouldn’t need to lure you with deceptive commercials. Yet, their tactics works, leading many to believe that they can beat the odds and be one of the lucky ones.
The same goes for dating. We don’t question what we are shown and believe that we too can beat the odds and win at love—even if it’s only for a night.
But what if you want more than one night, one month, or one year? What if you are looking for the one to marry and spend the rest of your life with?
Is the popular way the best way?
The truth be told, only a small percentage of dates lead to a meaningful relationship, so don't take it personally if you lose playing their game. Maybe you are one of tens of millions of singles that have experienced such pain from dating that you have given up on finding love entirely.
The good news is, there is a better way. But first, you need to stop gambling with your future and learn why people continue to follow popular dating techniques, the consequences, and how to make better choices.
Then you need a technique where knowledge comes before intimacy. Because dating shouldn’t be about romance, luck, or deception. It should be about finding the right person. A person with whom you’re compatible with. A person who understands how to honor the relationship, protect it, and maintain marital harmony. Someone who is more than an exciting first date and then a lousy partner. Such a person does exist, discover that special one.
