I consider myself pretty cautious when it comes to dating. I like taking calculated risks, carefully weighing my options before taking the plunge, so to speak. I feel as though it’s been a blessing and a curse sometimes though! How are you suppose to figure out when you are being too cautious (or careless) in dating?
Well, last month I said I was interested in exploring the matchmaking world a bit. I reached out to a real-life matchmaker, Mr. Paul Brunson aka the “Modern Day Matchmaker“.
Paul had a wonderful series of videos that sparked a lot of interesting dialogue among my friends and I. My favorite so far is “ How Do I know When to Invest?” because it explores one of the issues that I struggle with personally.
If you can’t view the video, there is one important question that really resonated with me: “Do they respond selflessly in times of challenge?” I have always believed that Maya Angelou quote, when people show you who they are, believe them. This is an example of that, I think. When you are faced with something really tough, how does the person you are dating handle it?
What do you think about risk management in terms of how and when to invest in each other?
When do you start to evaluate when to invest in potential mates? Is it before you go on the first date or after a few weeks?
How do YOU know when it’s time to invest?
