When Brian called to ask me out for a second dinner date, I giddily said, "Of course, I'd love to.But instead of going out, I'd like to cook dinner for you." He accepted my offer and I proceeded to work so hard to impress him with my domestic abilities.In the process of going through a divorce, it's likely you will receive a lot of advice about legal issues, finances, custody, how to "stick it" to your soon-to-be ex, and so on.But the one subject no one ever discusses is how to avoid being a desperate dater.The phenomenon is special appear in women obviously, because since women's movement in the 1960s, women in particular have delayed marring and have a families in order to develop their careers, that's why the number of educated singles is increasing.So it's not surprise that Watt and White (1999) assert that through computer communication, people can develop a very close, and potentially important relationship, even they never meet and seen one another.
If you are feeling desperate, consider it may not be the best time to seek a new relationship.
A conscious awareness of desperate dating can help to avoid relationship mistakes.
