There is a dating coach in New York City named Amy Nobile. She must be pretty good because she charges $10,000 for 4 months of services.
She's sharing one big piece of advice for FREE. It's a good one. If you're frantically searching for "the one," she says you have to use the 3-4 rule. The 3-4 rule will save you months, maybe years of time.
What is it?
What are they?
Chemistry: There has to be some level of attraction, physical, intellectual, etc...
Core Values: You have to know if your core values match. Your core values are up to you, what's most important to you in a longterm partner? Does this person want to have children? Religious beliefs?
Emotional Maturity: Is this person capable of expressing love?
Relationship Readiness: Are they ready to settle down? If they're not looking for a spouse and you are, well, this person isn't the one for you.
Sounds like some pretty valuable advice.
