Fact is, the person you end up with may not be in the package you expected him/her to be in, so give everyone a fair chance even if you don't immediately feel that spark! My number one piece of advice to singles in their 20s is to take dating seriously.
But going on actual dates, meeting actual people, and maybe, possibly committing to someone forever? Providing dating advice for men and women in their 20s can sometimes feel impossible, because we often stand in our own way on our search for finding the right person.
You have a signature dating mistake that is all yours and has your name written all over it.
All your friends and family know your relationships by this mistake.
It doesn't care if the guy you just slept with is also sleeping with five other side chicks or chronically unemployed.
By waiting to have sex until you have objectively qualified this guy as a boyfriend for you, who has proven himself through consistent behavior and [is] committed to being with just you, you are saving yourself from a whole lot of heart break from boys you will become prematurely infatuated with. Don't wait for someone else to come along and make you happy.
