Miss Know It All Answers Your Questions on Dating, Love, and Romance

Miss Know It All

Do you believe in love at first sight and why? AK

As to whether I believe in love at first sight, I can’t really say that I do. I think it is more of an infatuation or attraction to that person. Sometimes it is called lust. You can be turned on by someone but whether it is love, at first sight, has a different meaning depending on the person and what you are really seeking.

Have you ever had a horrific breakup and, if so, how did you handle it? SG

I have never had a horrific breakup, but you may find this post helpful:

In your opinion, what is the biggest mistake most people make after a breakup that inhibits that person from moving on? S

I find that many people will stay stuck on the reasons why the relationship ended rather than learn why it didn’t last. The following post may help answer your question:

Do you have specific rules for dating, if so what are they and what are the benefits of using them? A

If it’s the first date, the only rule I have is to remember it is just a date, period.

When going on a first date, what are the types of questions one should ask? V

That’s a tough question; it will depend on your objectives, but you may find this article helpful as to questions you should never ask on a first date:

What has been the best experience you have had on a first date? A

There were never any expectations that something more would happen on that first date.

In your experience, what is the prevalent difficulty singles find when making an effort to find a partner? CB

I believe that many singles have unrealistic aspirations when it comes to choosing a partner, for example, looking for that ‘perfect man or woman’ which can be a disappointment when that person doesn’t measure up to your wishes.

Which type of relationship has a better chance of endurance, a composed relationship or one filled with fervor and why? V 

This is a good question and will vary depending on the wants and needs of the couple. I believe for any relationship to endure, there should be a combination of both, filled with passion, respect, compassion, and understanding. I know of couples, who have been together for over 25 years, and they will tell you that for a relationship to sustain, the couple should have the same values and objectives along with a give and take attitude.

What was it that drew you to this specific theme for your blog? V

Someone else on this site had asked a similar question. It was a way to introduce my now defunct online dating site. Before I started my blog, I had published two newsletters that featured advice on dating, relationships and other topics of interest that were sent through snail mail. Once I got on the Internet, I started a blog in 2001 titled HMCS Romance International, which was geared toward people searching for adult contact. In 2006, I decided to start One World Singles Blog as a way to advertise and market my online dating site, but now I am concentrating on my blog.

Barnes and Noble:

What are some ideas of how a person can deal with the lure of contacting a one-night stand? J

I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking what you should do to encourage a one-night stand (which I don’t recommend for various reasons) or how to avoid someone who wants to just have a one-night stand?

What is the appropriate course of action for dealing with people who have misrepresented themselves online? T123

If you are talking about someone misrepresenting him or herself on an online dating site, you can contact the dating site directly or if you are in the USA, contact the Attorney General’s Office in the state where the site is operating. Most dating sites will deny any type of responsibilities or liabilities if you decide to meet someone online and you become the victim of a criminal act perpetrated by that person.

What do you want the world to know about you and how do you hope to impart this information to your blog? J

I have always believed in sharing information that improves the quality of life among individuals; when I help others, I am also helping myself. I will never forget when a close friend said, “If you don’t share the power, you will lose it.” And this is how I share what I know, whether it is through my writings, books or through the positive and life-saving messages found on my Tees.

Which social media sites have you used to promote your blog posts and why have you chosen these specific sites? A

I use Facebook and Twitter because these networks automatically feed my posts, which are available to my followers and friends. I am on Facebook more often because there is no limit to the number of characters you can use when making announcements.

How does a person handle a horrible first date after matching and interacting well with the person online?

Some people will never show you who they really are on an online dating site, which can be different when you meet that person face to face. You will have to decide if you just want to have a pleasant online connection only, but if your interaction with this person turns out to be bad on your first date, you may want to nip it in the bud and not see that person again.

What was one of the most heartbreaking things you have had to write about on your blog? MP

I made a decision to never write about heartbreaking stories on my blog. The mission of my blog is to provide informative, fun, and entertaining articles. Now, if you are interested in reading some fictional heartbreaking stories, you can check out my books at the following sites:

Due to the diverse range of your topics, have you ever considered writing a self-help book and why? B

Funny you should ask this question. Back in 1982 while I was on jury duty, an editor with a well-known book publishing company thought I should write a book on home management since my degree is in Home Economics. At that time I was not interested in writing a book. That was the furthest thing from my mind. However, something had happened that made me write Making Dollar$ And Cents Out Of Online Dating, which is not a self-help book, but the trails and tribulations I had face while starting an online dating site. But it may help someone who is contemplating on starting an online dating or any online business. But to answer your question, I have no intentions of writing a self-help book since this is not a passion of mine. I love writing stories that involve people who are searching for love and up with broken hearts and financially broke. In other words, my books do not have happily-ever-have endings. And these are the books I enjoy writing.

What safety measures do you use to secure your blog from hackers? D

I use McAfee software, which is excellent for blocking hackers and other threats. My blog is on Blogger and my web browser is Google Chrome which is good when it comes to blocking hackers.

Have you ever had an individual comment on your blog about an urgent life-threatening situation, if so how did you respond, if not how would you respond? @F

I have never had this issue regarding a life-threatening situation. Since I am not an expert when it comes to life-threatening circumstances, I would encourage that person to contact law enforcement or a professional who specializes in that particular threat.
