I’ve never been Romeo who meets a girl and falls for her immediately. My philosophy of dating is to just fart right away. I’m not great at dating, but I need to do it to relax. Well, dating has become a sport and not about finding the person you love. My mom is going to kill me for talking about sleeping with people. I think I’m a change from what it would be like dating a normal guy who doesn’t talk too much.
It’s been a much slower process for me each time I’ve gone into a relationship. Watching your daughter being collected by her date feels like handing over a million dollar Stradivarius to a gorilla. I don’t know any of us who are in relationships that are totally honest – it doesn’t exist. I have a lot of boyfriends, I want you to write that. I was dating this guy and we would spend all day text messaging each other. I don’t know the first real thing about the dating game. But I don’t want to put myself in the position where I’m in a monogamous relationship right now. ‘Sex and the City’ changed everything for me because those girls would sleep with so many people.

We are constantly protecting the male ego, and it’s a disservice to men. I don’t know how to talk to a specific person and connect.
It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. Now and then for no good reason a man can figure out, life will just haul off and knock him flat, slam him agin’ the ground so hard it seems like all his insides is busted. A lot of it’s mighty fine, and you can’t afford to waste the good part frettin’ about the bad. Sure, I know – sayin’ it’s one thing and feelin’ it’s another.
But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer… Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. But I’ll tell you a trick that’s sometimes a big help.
Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point – that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. When you start lookin’ around for something good to take the place of the bad, as a general rule you can find it.
As professional women always on the lookout for the best and the brightest life has to offer, we can’t help but reflect back on our past dating experiences, as well as the ones we are currently exploring and those we’ve yet to discover.
The best to stay sane, we’ve found, is to know others are going through the same exact thing as you.
This is where some very witty—and inspirational—dating quotes come in handy. In my own relationships, I know that I should break up with someone who doesn’t encourage me to be strong and make my own choices and do what’s best in my life, so if you’re dating someone who doesn’t want you to be the best person you can be, you shouldn’t be dating them. You know, the man of my dreams might walk round the corner tomorrow. Nothing defines humans better than their willingness to do irrational things in the pursuit of phenomenally unlikely payoffs. It’s needing people who understand your work schedule. But I do know a woman who’d be mad at me for saying that. I used to be a real prince charming if I went on a date with a girl.

But then I’d get to where I was likely to have a stroke from the stress of keeping up my act. Dating has taught me what I want and don’t want, who I am, and who I want to be. Dating is really hard because everyone puts on a front.
If you don’t have a valentine, hang out with your girlfriends, don’t go looking for someone. I’ve since learned the key to a good date is to pay attention to her.

Mary Tyler Moore was a working woman whose story lines were not always about dating and men. You’re not as trusting, or as eager to get back out there and expose yourself to someone. If I’m with a man, is that going to prevent me from achieving my goal?
Sometimes it’s better to hold out and not kiss for a long time. They were about work friendships and relationships, which is what I feel my adult life has mostly been about. What sacrifices will I have to make in terms of being myself, if I’m with a man? Women need to know that not all guys are going to hurt them the way that the guy did before they started dating me.
