My friend Rick claims that the secret to dating successfully is to decide what it is that you want, and then stick to it. Don’t make exceptions. People get into trouble when they start second-guessing themselves.
With that in mind, I set an age limit for myself. 28 was absolutely the youngest guy I would allow myself to date. And then a 25-year-old marine wrote to me on Match.com, and I decided that rules were made to be broken.
I’m sure Rick is right, but I bet I’m having more fun.
