The universal rule in matchmaking that should be applied to dating is there is no universal rule – no one-size-fits-all imperative that is relevant to each unique individual.
Everyone inside or outside of a dating service should be given their fair shot, but it takes a methodical, organic unveiling in due time to really understand someone you are dating.
If it is one thing people love to tell young, driven, single and slightly stubborn, “I will never,” women, it's that they will one day wake up and want the fairytale.
