Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 3.37.27 PMWe live in a world where instant gratification has become an essential. Our attention span has plummeted tremendously. One in every three website visitors will spend less than 15 seconds on an article, which means content curators have a small window to capture the average American’s attention. At newsstands, a magazine headline has eight seconds to reel in a reader. With more and more millennials becoming inattentive and suffering from dating ADD, how can one focus on finding Mr. Right?

From Twitter to Tinder to #ManCrushMondays, it is harder than ever for millennials to concentrate on dating one person when there are several options within your immediate radius. How do you win the dating game?

First, you must be aware of the signs. Symptoms of dating ADD are akin to Attention Deficit Disorder. An individual who suffers from dating ADD will have difficulty paying attention to one person, will become easily distracted, frequently shift from one person to another and will exhibit poor listening skills. It can be seen before, during and following a date. This person yearns for as many courtships as possible.

Second, one must assess whether or not she is ready for something serious. If you’ve dated a wide range of suitors and is now 100 percent certain of what you want from a partner, perhaps it is time to reposition yourself in the dating world. Conversely, if you are unsure of the kind of man you would like to build a bond with, you should continue your courtships.

Once you’ve decided you are ready for a commitment, it is time to implement these simple tips that will help you focus on finding Mr. Right versus getting side tracked by Mr. Right now.

    Black Women n Latinas in their 20s often have a vastly overrated sense of their value and think that male 8’s are in their league when the women are only 6’s or 7’s.Women tend to focus on the most successful guys and then think all guys are like them and thus think that men can totally get sex whenever they want–not the reality for most men.

    Men who date women for 5 years and don’t want to marry or cohabit for a long time basically don’t like/love the women they’re with enough. It really is the settle for the 5 now until I get a bit older and have gotten more career under my belt and more confident and then go out and find a 6 that he’d actually be happy to marry.

    All that the timing wasn’t right and so on is mostly BS. They just weren’t that into her.

    That’s the hardest lesson for women to learn, that they can get sex with men that don’t love them that much, that aren’t into them, that will even stick around for a steady supply of sex and companionship for a couple years, but these men don’t love them deeply and sure as hell never intend on marrying them (though complacently sliding into marriage or kids does often happen).

    If your parents were both 6s, your mother could have spent her 20s hooking up with 8s – but your father couldn’t have. Young women days often do that these days. However, when these women reach their late 20s / 30s they will have to drop back down to dating 6s if they want to secure commitment. This process is difficult to accept because after 10 years of hooking-up with 8s she will have to realize that in fact she was only a 6 the whole time (the same applies for 5s hooking up with 7s, 4s with 6s etc). Truly hypergamous women never realize/accept it and so they keep getting dumped, or stay single.
