Dating is hard. While my mother’s sage wisdom that I am awesome and any guy would be lucky to date me has gotten me through a lot of the nasty, tangled mess that is dating, there are just some times I need more than her advice.
Let’s be honest, dating has changed. My mom never had to deal with online dating. My mom never even had to deal with being single at 28 (when she was 28 she was married and had me.) There was no such thing as a hook-up. There was definitely no such thing as Facebook or texting or email. There were two ways to make a date; asking someone out in person or asking them out on the phone. There were two ways to meet someone; meeting them in real life or a set-up.
All these new technologies have made what is already a sticky mess even more complicated. I just had so many questions: Where do you find guys? What about guys who actually want a girlfriend? What about guys of a quality/caliber worthy of my awesomeness? Should I try online dating? And if I do it, what do I write in that stupid, intimidating profile form? What picture should I use? And that guy I just met at the bar—How can I tell if he likes me? Should I just go ahead and ask him out?
And I know I’m not alone in feeling this way. These are basic, fundamental questions that almost every girl I know has had at some point or another. Yet what I couldn’t seem to find were good answers for them.
And I wanted answers. Hoo boy, did I want answers.
I was tired of advice that in the end only made me feel less in control of my dating life by telling me I apparently needed to change my personality just to play games or follow old-school “rules.” (Which seems to me to be exactly the trite, drippy missives slightly reworded in every Cosmo magazine published since I first picked one up in the early ‘90s.) So, after all our searching without a quality solution that fit our real lives, and in the truest spirit of Vixely, we decided to create our own.
With the help of the amazing Vixely team, we set out looking for advice on how to meet and date really great people. We scoured the internet, best-selling books, and the most popular dating blogs. We drowned in a sea of advice. Then, before we even wrote anything down, we rigorously tested it. We turned ourselves into human guinea pigs sacrificed on the altar of the science (and art) of dating. Using our own experiences and the successes and failures of our endeavors, we cut through all the garbage out there (and there’s a lot) and what we finally put together might just be the definitive guide to how to meet great guys.
This is, after all, the essential first step. The foundation on which all other advice and research must be built. Because none of that other advice is worth a lick if you don’t have a really great guy in the first place. So, that’s where we started, helping you efficiently and effectively meet the men you want so you can date with confidence and success.
“The Dating Guide: The Ultimate Guide to Meeting a Great Guy, Online Dating, Flirting and the First Date” is more than just another “pick-up” guide. The focus is on providing detailed, useful instructions on exactly what to do, tried and proven by Vixens just like you. So you can stop wondering how to meet guys and start dating them.
