This past week I was asking my friends if they ask their dads about dating and boys. We were going to have a dating segment on the radio station I worked for. The conversations were interesting because I realized coming up with the questions was more difficult than I expected. I knew I had questions, but didn’t know how to ask the questions. Titles of magazines, countless dating tips and relationship articles were streaming through my mind. All of the articles from complete strangers who tried to answer the questions floating around in my head. Why do we search for answers but do not ask the questions?
In the movie, “He’s Just Not That Into You” the main character, Gigi, does not have a clue about guys. I read the book in high school and stopped half way through.

When the movie came out, a few years later, I was able to face into the realities of the dating games. You can, too. Here are a few tips I have learned while dating about self respect. Here’s why, if you find yourself waiting on a guy, you should break up and make up.
