And I do think there is room for a woman to instigate a conversation first in the competitive world singles ward meeting and dating. But then again, if you’re his type, he will see you. But if you want to throw a party and, so happen invites your crush. It doesn't matter when you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60 and, over. I don’t pretend to be a relationships expert, a dating guru, or any sort of therapist. You will find that person when you least expect it. All of this goes against the teachings of The Rules. I’ve read “The Rules” (both the original and updated) a few times. I’ve broken every single one of The Rules at times. The women feel like they have no choice but to be proactive, invite the guys over, flaunt what they got, and make sure they are noticed and remembered.So when The Rules suggest that a woman should never instigate a conversation, or angle herself into the seat beside his, invite him over first, etc., it might seem like a really bad strategy. I’ve been a Rules Girl, and I’ve been the anti-Rules Girl. (It’s possible she only ever planned the dinner just for this reason.) Every Sunday she makes it a point to talk to him, sit near but not too close to him, and repeats the same at family home evening, and Institute during the week.How else will a guy ever notice you in a sea of other women, if you don’t help him out a bit? I’ve asked out men, and I’ve patiently waited and wished for a man to ask me out. She conveniently got his phone number when she invited him over for dinner. How much more does she have to do to get him to ask her out or fall in love with her? If she had never done any of that, she wouldn’t have to ask.
He must have put together at least dozens, if not hundreds, of snail mail letters (the only kind that existed at the time) and sent them all over the Rocky Mountains, looking for love.In the first ward where I saw this letter, there was a single woman we were good friends with, and I encouraged her to respond.(He looked like a decent guy and, while I’m no judge, he seemed good looking.You can meet a new person, have a fabulous conversation with them, and then it may be months before you spot the person at church again.There are so many people in our ward it can feel like Where’s Waldo in there week after week.
