Dating is a game, and unfortunately not entertaining as a game of ping-pong. This is serious Monopoly. One moment you are immensely rich and you live on the expensive Kalverstraat, the other moment you walk empty-handed to the bank. In fact, nobody wants to play that game, but if you want a new relationship, you will have to believe it. As with any game, it helps to determine a strategy.
If there is anything that helps after a failed date, it is an episode of the American series, Sex and the City. Let the friends Samantha, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte help you determine a new strategy:
1. Being single is ok
Does Samantha look unhappy? It seems that she has more fun in her life than her three girlfriends. She is confident, successful and intelligent. She compares men with another organism: "Men are not complicated. They are really just plants'.
2. Don't look for mister perfect
While Charlotte is trying to divorce her "perfect" husband, she unexpectedly falls under the spell of her lawyer Harry. He is small, has no hair on his head but on his back, slightly thick, not fallen on his mouth and quite sweaty. After her attempts to change him she decides to accept him as he is and appears to make her overjoyed.
3. Do not go for less
Carrie believes in true love and does not go for less: "I am someone who is looking for love, really love. Ridiculous, intense, uncomfortable, craving I cannot live without you love. Well and who not? In other words, you save time and energy and only invest it in men who deserve it. Until then you will be happier on your own. It took a while, but also Carrie got it done with her Mr. Big.
4. Without friends you are nowhere
"It doesn't matter who broke your heart or how long it takes you to get over it, you will never manage without your friends."
With this strategy the game is a lot less annoying?
