The Surprising Dating Advice That Gets Real Results | Janet Ong Zimmerman


How singles dated: then and now

Before online dating and matchmaking services existed, dating was simpler. Men and women met the old-fashioned way: through friends and family, at events, at church, or while they were out and about. Since there were a limited number of ways for singles to meet, men and women were more thought about the way they approached dating and their roles were clearly defined — men acted as men and women behaved like women.

In this day and age, online dating and matchmaking services have given singles exponentially more ways to meet. And since many women now act like men and many men aren’t as clear on what their role is, listening to old, stale dating advice won’t yield successful results.

These worn-out approaches may catch a man’s eye and land you a date or two.

But if you want your dates with a man to turn into a promising relationship, you need dating advice that’s insightful, meaningful, and empowering. Before we get to this advice, let’s look at why the “same old” dating advice no longer works — and why modern dating rules are confusing. Knowing this will give you a better understanding of why real-world advice is needed.

Why the same old dating advice and modern dating rules don’t work

Old dating advice is fluffy and lacks substance. It focuses more on the superficial aspects, like showing your cleavage, being flirtatious, and flipping your hair to get asked out on a date. It says to not call him unless he calls you. It tells you that dating is a numbers game, and to date as many people as possible.
