101 Screts For Your Twenties: Love life

You can’t have a book called “101 Secrets For Your Twenties” without a single secret to help people on their love life. Paul Angone wrote a couple of chapters about dating and marriage and I will cover both on the same blog post.

Paul wrote

A date is a short period of time with another human being getting to know ech other’s story. Then you go home. Don’t make a date into something more than a date.

which is the first mistake of many people.

Later, Paul said

you can’t really define what you’re looking for in a guy or girl if you haven’t spent time getting to know them. Each date gives you a better understnding of the complexity of your taste.

And close to the end of the book, Paul advises about The One:

But wheter there is such a thing as The One is really not that important to me. What’s important is that you make a wise decision when deciding if this is the right one for you.

(…)

So instead of searching for this magical creature called The One, I propose we should be on the hunt for The Four—the four different relationships that need to be intertwined within the Right One.

The four different relationships are

  1. Best Friend
  2. Lover
  3. Business Partner
  4. Wartime Ally
