This could be good assessment of how well you know and practice the Five Stages of Dating: attraction, uncertainty, exclusivity, intimacy, and engagement. Each stage is required to form a solid foundation in a relationship and, ideally, the stages should be completed in order.

 

Now, let's see where your relationship style puts you in the dating game … 

 

Whether you’re officially dating or not even sure if what you’re doing is a date, it’s kind of strange that a series of successive planned activities with rigidly prescribed rules defines whether or not two people are compatible for a long-term relationship. And yet, we continue to do it. Since dating is so weird, one’s navigation of this world can say a lot about them.

 

Online dating sites present us with a seemingly endless amount of choice and questions to fill out, at first this array of choice may seem to be a good thing, however this may not be a good thing all of the time especially when having to fill out forms and answer long questions. 

 

This degree of choice in online dating has a differential effect on the decision making strategies we all make. When more options are available to participants, this can lead to more searching behaviour. 'More means worse' and the ultimate consequence is that we can end up not finding our best dating match.

 

 

At Terry Webbs we keep things simple and uncomplicated, we want dating to be fun, not mundane, we want dating to be about you finding your perfect partner or soulmate and not having to worry about answering profile questions or filling out forms. At Terry Webbs you can be more of yourself and worry less about forms and profiles!

Anyone who's been on the dating scene knows how scary it is, with friends setting up blind dates, meeting strangers or taking a stab at an online dating service. Bombarded with people offering unsolicited advice on who's right for you, it's no wonder choosing someone to go out with gets confusing. You have to listen to your common sense, and with the following process, you can decide who to date.

 

Find out if you like doing the same things. If you enjoy watching a movie at home with a big bucket of popcorn when he'd rather be out hiking a trail, that's a clue that you have different hobbies. The more activities you enjoy in common, the more you'll have to do when you're together.

 

Inquire about her faith. It may not seem that important at the beginning when you're just deciding who to date, but dating someone who believes much as you do will help a future relationship. If your faith is important to you, this is an especially pertinent piece of information to have before asking her out.

 

Share similar family values. You spend every holiday surrounded by family and can't wait to open presents on Christmas Eve, but he flies to Aspen to ski Christmas week. The differences in your life may attract you to him now but may cause problems when your family asks for him next Christmas.

Watch how she treats others. When you go out on your first date, pay attention to how she interacts with and treats other people. You can tell a lot about her by whether she berates the wait staff for small infractions or treats others with respect.

 

Consider your past relationships. If you see a familiar unsuccessful pattern emerging, think twice before saying "yes" to dinner and a movie with another high-powered executive. You might think you need to be dating a certain type, but it may be time to redefine the type for you.

 

Resist giving in to a dry spell. Your friends may mean well by trying to send you out on blind dates with all of their girlfriends' girlfriends, but don't ask someone out just for the sake of going out. If you know ahead of time that she just doesn't interest you, then head off any future complications by passing.

 

Evaluate whether your goals are compatible. If you see yourself in 10 years with the four-bedroom, two and a half-bath colonial with two kids, a dog and a picket fence, but he's talking about backpacking through Europe before touring the Outback, forgo a second date.
