Why is it so difficult for us to accept generosity when we date?

We’ve all done this: Signed up for online dating and then spent the next few days or weeks or even months just swiping right on dozens of people. We chat, we flirt, we even go on dates sometimes.

The whole point of online dating is to find someone to date, right? But although I suspect many of us venturing into this world want true love, we rarely take a chance and open up to just one person. In the world of casually swiping right, it’s easier to say “sure, why not?” to ten people than to say “yes, definitely” up to just one special someone.

But without opening up, how can we truly know and accept the kind of love, kindness and generosity that we all deserve? In my latest article for Dose.com, I explore why it’s just SO DARN DIFFICULT to accept generosity when dating, why it’s so much easier to allow bad behavior and why we all deserve mutual self-giving and vulnerability.

Here’s the absolute best of the worst dating advice I’ve ever heard

Please subscribe to my newsletter to get writing news and updates.

I’m lucky to have found the person I want to spend the rest of my life with (finally!), but before that… Well, I was a single and dating girl for many more years than I care to count. And while I can look back and appreciate the times I was single and the times I was coupled up, there’s one thing that I’ve never appreciated: bad dating advice.

The truth is that, whether you’re in a long-term relationship or are happily without a life partner, you’re bound to hear tons of advice from well-meaning strangers, acquaintances, coworkers, friends and family members. I’ve compiled some of that oh-so-horrible dating advice. While most of it applies to single folk, the #1 bad piece of advice is actually the worst piece of advice I’ve ever heard.

The truth behind why Millennials don’t care about owning cars or houses

Please subscribe to my newsletter to get writing news and updates.

Earlier this year I wrote about Millennial wedding trends and a couple months ago I wrote about how asking a millennial to carry cash is absolutely terrible. Today I’m back writing about Millennials once more! This time it’s about why we Millennials don’t really want to buy cars and houses quite as much as generations of the past.

For me, it mainly comes down to memories being more important than material possessions… But there’s a lot more to it too. Plus, BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: This is also my very first story published for my new contributor gig at Dose.com and OMGFacts.com. YAY!
