How to Get a Date Worth Keeping


Now before you start asking me a ton of questions… Yes, I am married and I am reading these books for work. I am a producer and have the absolute privilege of producing a weekly show. Our latest topic is that of relationships and specifically dating.

It’s been a while since I’ve been on the dating scene and quite honestly my husband swept me off the market at an early age. As I look at women navigating their way through this dating scene, I find most of them are coming up empty handed. Where have all the good men gone??

I am reading a handful of books by experts and one in particular entitled, “How to Get a Date Worth Keeping” by Henry Cloud. This book claims “be dating in six months or your money back.”

There have already been a couple of very insightful lines about how men and women date and I want to ask my single readers what their dating experiences have been like so far?

If you are married, what was dating like before you met your husband? How did you know dating your husband was different?


  1. I’ve been married for five years now and dated my husband for 4 years before we got married, so I’ve been off the market awhile as well. I remember that I knew dating Michael was different because it wasn’t so much effort. I didn’t feel like I was constantly having to work to get his attention. I had it just being me.

    • Your story is so similar to mine. Yes, dating my husband was so effortless. Don’t get me wrong, we had our ups and downs, but we were better together than apart. I also thought Brett was very mature for his age. At 18 he had a very clear path for his life and I really admired him that. His ambition was very attractive.
