Do you have a friend that rates every date according to their marriage potential? Are you that person?

1. Practice Makes Perfect
As with all social dynamics, successfully navigating the waters of dating takes some practice. A dating relationship requires many skills, and you are unlikely to get it right without the benefit of previously experiencing the problems and situations that may arise throughout the course of a romantic relationship. By dating several people over a period of time and having a couple long-term relationships, you can gain valuable insight into the dynamics of a dating relationship. Not only will this allow you to become more confident in your current relationships, but it will better equip you for when you do meet someone you want to marry.
