Why You Cannot Find “The One”
Heidi K. Isern

Love this. I was single — off and on — into my mid-30s. A friend gave me some advice that eventually stuck:

Only ask yourself one question on a first date: Would you be willing to go out with this person again?

On the second date, up the stakes — ask yourself if you would you be interested and willing to go out twice more with this person?

And so on.

My now husband and I have many interests that aren’t shared — he likes horror movies as much as I can’t stand them. I can remember thinking — with no particular sense of attachment — on the way home from our first date, “I’d be good with another date or if we’re just friends. He’s fun to be with.” He still is.
