  1. Decent advice…however!
    I’m currently ‘getting to know’ a young lady who was very reluctant to give me her age and she still hasn’t even given me her last name. We’ve been out twice and she wants me to open ALL doors for her though she has yet to offer to pay for at least a tip and hasn’t shown much gratitude even with a simple kiss after the date.
    With that said, I must say there should be a line drawn somewhere as far as giving potential partners a chance. Fk looking for perfect, some of us are finding it hard to just meet attractive people who actually make sense.
    I’ve noticed in the average married person’s mind, ‘not settling’ equals ‘looking for perfect.’ This simply isn’t true. I think ‘not settling’ means nothing less than a partner that turns you on and has a good head on their shoulders and that the attraction and compatibility is mutual. This is something that all healthy relationships should have going on.

    • If you want a good woman you have to be prepared to give up some of your boyish ways. I don’t agree with her not telling you her last name and age, for that alone you should have headed for the exit door, but expecting her to tip and give you a kiss after a date is too much.
      The advise I like to give single men is become the man that you would want your daughter to marry and marry the type of woman you expect your daughter to be.

  2. If there is no love, compatibility and pleasure in a relationship, that’s settling.

  3. Dr. Boyce,

    I see your point but instead of giving advice to people and telling them that settling might be a good option for them the best advise should be ” DON’T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN YOUR WILLING TO BRING TO THE REALATIONSHIP” If I am a beautiful college educated working woman than not settling for anything less than an attractive college educated employed man is not unreasonable.

    If a man is having a hard time finding a woman its because he doesn’t quite have his self together.
    If a woman is having a hard time finding a man its because she is not ready financial , spiritually, emotional or something.

    God is not cruel and mean, his intentions aren’t to leave us alone and desperate our whole lives. If you want to find a good mate or have a good mate find you First, FIND YOURSELF!!!!!
