17 Women Reveal Their Dating Dealbreakers & They’re So Brutal

Candice Jalili writes at Elite Daily “When it comes to dating, everyone has some sort of deal-breaker. If you’re sitting there thinking you’re an exception to this rule just wait it out. You’ll find out your dating deal-breaker in due time. For me, it’s bailing. I cannot stand people who bail on plans. I think it’s totally rude and completely unacceptable. For my best friend, it’s guys with dirty finger nails… which, TBH, I might have to add to my list also because, well, ew. Want to hear some more? You’re in luck!

Most people pursue mates who are ‘out of their league,’ according to a new dating site study

Peter Kotecki writes for Business Insider “When it comes to online dating, a majority of men and women pursue partners who are “out of their league,” reaching out to people who are 25% more desirable than themselves, according to a new study. University of Michigan professors Elizabeth Bruch and M.E.J. Newman, who study human behavior, analyzed the messages between heterosexual people from four cities in the United States — New York, Chicago, Seattle, and Boston. Desirability was measured using an algorithm that rates someone as more desirable if other desirable people send them a message. Dating site users have a variety of methods for judging desirability, including age, sexual orientation, and responses to open-ended questions. (Bruch told Business Insider she cannot specify which dating site was used due to a non-disclosure agreement.)”

Yes, You Have To Update Your Online Dating Profiles (Frequently)

Kasandra Brabaw writes for Refinery 29 “Often, setting up an online dating profile is a painstaking process. You suffer over every choice: which photos make your life look adventurous, how to answer questions in a way that shows you’re witty and fun, and which music and tv shows really describe your personality. But once you’ve finished setting up your profile, you forget it. Because who wants to go through the trouble again? Well, as hard as it is to think up even more witty things to say, it’s totally worth it to update your online dating profiles. And if you’re serious about finding a relationship (or hookups) on dating apps, then you should update frequently. Julie Spira, an online dating coach, suggests tweaking your profiles at least once a week.”

I asked a matchmaker about the 3 biggest mistakes people make when dating — and you’re probably guilty of at least one

Shana Lebowitz writes for Business Insider “Claudia Duran has seen it all. The Miami-based matchmaker works with dating service Elite Connections , and she’s helped everyone from a 35-year-old MBA whose family is paying for his membership to a 73-year-old widower who is the CEO of a commercial real-estate company. But Duran has watched people of all backgrounds fall into the same traps when it comes to finding a relationship. We chatted by phone this summer, and she told me about some of the most common pitfalls — plus how to avoid them.”

7 Pieces Of Dating Advice From A Woman Who Went On 100 Dates In A Year

Kelsey Booresen writes for the Huffington Post “In the span of one year, Holly Martyn did something that would make most people exhausted to even think about: She went on 100 ― yes, 100 ― dates. In 2014, after two divorces and a breakup with a boyfriend, Martyn said she was feeling sorry for herself. The single mom and former Wall Street executive was at a spa reading a magazine when she came across an essay by journalist Donna Freydkin that told the story of her falling love and getting married in her 30s, then getting pregnant, only to find out two months before her due date that her husband had a brain tumor, which eventually killed him. ”

The 10 red flags of online dating

Our good friend Erika Ettin writes for The Bristol Herald Courier ” People ask me all the time whether there are specific “red flags” to look for when reading someone’s online dating profile or message. Obviously, what you determine to be a red flag will be subjective, just like your personal deal-breakers, but below are a few things to watch out for on your venture into online dating: 1. Photos with dates (if they are oblivious enough to leave a timestamp or put an old date in the caption) from more than two or three years ago … or no pictures at all.”

The 5 hardest things about dating someone you work with

Lindsay Dodgson writes for The Insider ” Spending a lot of time with your colleagues means you form some great friendships, but it also means the lines can blur a little. You might find the people you considered friends are suddenly becoming attractive. This could be a genuine romantic connection blossoming, or it could be something called “vicinity attraction” where you start to have feelings for someone simply because you’ve spent a lot of time together. That’s not to say it’s a less viable way of starting a relationship, but you might want to take a step back and see if the relationship also works outside the office before you commit to anything. Wherever and however you felt the spark, work relationships are complicated. Sometimes a work spouse may turn into something more, or an affair may arise from having a few too many drinks one evening.”

According to some headhunters, the secret to finding “the one” in NYC is to treat it like a numbers game. “The pure volume of daters [in the city means] you have to sift through them similar to interviewing a ton of candidates for a job,” says Dandan Zhu, 30, the owner of recruitment firm DG Recruit in Midtown.So to efficiently find the best possible romantic match, Zhu says to act like a headhunter when looking for love.

8 Things To Know If You’re Dating Someone With Anxiety

Claire Lampen writes for Women’s Health “You know that feeling you get when you’re waiting for someone to text you back—and it’s stressing you out? Your stomach is flooded with butterflies (in a bad way), you feel slightly nauseated, and your heart flutters in a weird rhythm? Well, for someone with anxiety, that feeling is present a lot. If you’re dating someone with anxiety, it can be hard to understand why that feeling doesn’t just subside, or why you can’t fix it.”

If The Person You’re Dating Is Seeing Other People, But You’re Not, Here’s What To Do

Elana Rubin writes for Elite Daily ” I’ve never been able to continuously date multiple people at the same time. Sure, I’ve gone on a string of first dates in the same week, but never has anything expanded from the initial meeting to dating many people at once. It’s not that I have anything against it personally — I just like my alone time and only want to give so much time to dating, let alone to several people. So what do you do if the person you’re dating is seeing other people while you’re very much not? It’s less tricky than you think, but you will want to consider how you approach this, for sure. It’s probably something awkward to think about once you’ve been dating someone for some time — say several weeks into seeing one another. You could very well be pretty unaffected by them dating other people, but it may eat at you the more it goes on (and the more attached you get). That’s why I suggest you address it — but of course, it may be your own personal decision to not see other people, and to not be bothered by the fact that the person you’re seeing is still dating. Everyone is different. But if it were me? I’d consider the following.”
