10 Steps to Dating With a Purpose

With 4 weddings on the horizon between now and December, I felt compelled to start this conversation in the F.I.R.E. community. In 2015, one may frequently hear, "dating nowadays is different" and "the times have changed." Yet, just because times have changed doesn't mean it has changed in the right direction. Madam Koverage (madamkoverage.com), wrote a great blog post, "Dating with a Purpose" that listed 10 steps to help men and women date with a purpose. Below are Madam Koverage's 10 steps (the ones highlighted in bold, the F.I.R.E. community have explored). Check out the full article by clicking on Source below to read more about the steps and their importance.

  2. Keep your legs closed.
