I want to say right from the beginning that I’m one of those people who believes that we don’t “look for and find love" but rather, the love already in us attracts the love of another.

Do Guys Lose Interest If You Reveal Too Much?

Do Guys Lose Interest If You Reveal Too Much?

Question: I read your blog: The "Rules" and Playing Dating Mind Games. While I agree with some things you say, I do not think that women should be open and forthcoming in the first few dates.
