Take This Dating IQ Quiz and We’ll Guess When You’ll Meet Your Soulmate

 

 

Romantic relationships are usually the next step from a friendship. When you come into a relationship it is necessary to keep that spark alive, to be adventurous and fun. But it also means there should be mutual respect and equality. While it is true that relationship compatibility makes a relationship stronger, it is also true that a couple doesn’t have to have every interest in common.

Well the ancient concept of a “soul mate” still exists and is quite popular. The idea that there is one perfect person for us out there, who will find all our flaws as our unique aspects is way too pretentious. This belief does nothing but makes us sabotage and doubt potential relationships and partners, because they don’t match the image we have in our mind.

Often we find that potential partner and let go if it because of different interests and needs, but what we forget is that is not how life works. We can’t find someone with exactly the same interests as ours’ and it is also necessary a friendship as a support to the relationship.

“I believe with all my heart that the cliches are true, that we are our own best friends and best company, and that if you’re not right for yourself, it’s impossible to be right for anyone.”
Rachel Machacek, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment

“The more you talk about it, rehash it, rethink it, cross analyze it, debate it, respond to it, get paranoid about it, compete with it, complain about it, immortalize it, cry over it, kick it, defame it, stalk it, gossip about it, pray over it, put it down or dissect its motives it continues to rot in your brain. It is dead. It is over. It is gone. It is done. It is time to bury it because it is smelling up your life and no one wants to be near your rotted corpse of memories and decaying attitude. Be the funeral director of your life and bury that thing!”
Shannon L. Alder He’s Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys

“Better to put your heart on the line, risk everything, and walk away with nothing than play it safe. Love is a lot of things, but “safe” isn’t one of them.”
Mandy Hale, Mend My Broken Heart

“…he had a way of taking your hand which made it clear he’d have to be the one to let go.”
Alice Hoffman, Paper Towns

“A man fishes for two reasons: he’s either sport fishing or fishing to eat, which means he’s either going to try to catch the biggest fish he can, take a picture of it, admire it with his buddies and toss it back to sea, or he’s going to take that fish on home, scale it, fillet it, toss it in some cornmeal, fry it up, and put it on his plate. This, I think, is a great analogy for how men seek out women.”
Steve Harvey, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“There will never be a good time, financially, to get married, unless you’re Shaq or Ray Romano. But somehow people manage. If your man is using money as an excuse not to marry you, it’s your relationship that’s insecure, not his bank account.”
Greg Behrendt, Sugar Daddy

“Dating is like trying to make a meal out of leftovers. Some leftovers actually get better when they’ve had a little time to mature. But others should be thrown out right away, No matter how you try to warm them up, they’re never as good as when they were new.”
Lisa Kleypas, Succubus Blues

“We men are very simple people: if we like what we see, we’re coming over there. If we don’t want anything from you, we’re not coming over there. Period. Please highlight this part right here so you can always remind yourself the next time a man steps to you: a man always wants something. Always. And when it comes to women, that plan is always to find out two things: (1) if you’re willing to sleep with him, and (2) if you are, how much it will cost to get you to sleep with him.”
Steve Harvey, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

“A friend of mine told a story about a date with a guy she was really excited about: He stood her up. He then called her, begging her forgiveness and giving some excuse. She told him to get lost, telling him that he only gets one shot with her, and he blew it.”
Greg Behrendt, Liz Tuccillo Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman

“If you have to convince someone to stay with you then they have already left.”

“I think we’re too young to be dating. I mean I don’t see what the rush is.” Summer says.
