The Single Most Important Habit of Dating

See also

Have you been experiencing more failures than successes on the dating scene? If yes, you may be neglecting the single most important habit of dating - punctuality.

Yes, punctuality plays a major role in whether you find someone wonderful for you or your worse nightmare. By being punctual, you increase your chances of being at the right place, at the right time, with the right person.

Being punctual demonstrates you’re committed and you stick to your promises without excuse, without exception.

When you’re always on time, you place yourself in a position of power. You can demand that people take you seriously and respect your time without saying a word.

In the dating world, first impressions are lasting impressions. You will want your first impression to be a powerful and delightful impression.

You will want to date someone just as punctual as you because respect and time go hand in hand. You learn a great deal about the person you’re attracted to or dating by observing their punctuality or lack of punctuality. You, I repeat, you will never want to date, marry or have sex with someone that is so disrespectful towards commitments made and careless of the time you make for him or her.

When people drop plans or mistreat you, it’s a sign of how disorganized they live their lives. You don’t want to get caught up with someone that cannot honor easy commitments to you. Can you imagine how that same someone would honor important commitments?

When you’re dating someone that cannot honor the easiest commitments, trust me that same person will lie, cheat and disrespect you no matter how many times you agree to forgive and forget.

Disorganized. Dysfunctional. Unreasonable. The 3 no’s of dating. Anytime someone shows you signs of these bad personality traits, it’s time to get rid of him/her as your potential lifetime partner.

You want a good man or woman, be punctual. It will save you a great deal of time and trouble in dating. Date with a purpose.
