Even if you are desperate for a date on Friday night, a man who disrespects you or cannot hold a job will not be able to fulfill you in other areas.

Rule #4: Don’t Play Games Successful singles know what goes around comes around.
To become a truly successful single in the new millennium, you owe it to yourself to become a red flag specialist.
That means paying attention to red flags as they are presented to you on dates.
