Let's face it - the dating world can be a confusing and dangerous place.
While the internet and smart phones make the quest for romance easier in some ways, technology can also complicate matters.

His approach creeped me out and I hated that I felt pressured to give him my digits. I probably would’ve gone out with Dex, but the guy took too long!

He was just too late.–Ivan: Another guy I met in the store I worked at, Ivan is the guy I married. And no, I don’t know what it’s like to be a guy looking for women to date. And what I learned:–John: When I met John, he was working in a shoe store and was just about the funniest man I’d ever known. We just had different goals.–Adam: I was in a bar when I met Adam. He came in the first weekend we’d opened a brand new location, and my friend Misti told me “that guy’s vibing you!
