A Modern Guide to Dating
from the Minds of 150 Opinionated Ladies
Let's be honest. Men and women are different. Sometimes very different and that can make dating tricky. Wouldn't it be helpful to know what she's looking for in a guy and what she wants out of a relationship? Which is why we went straight to source—nearly 150 women assembled for DonQ Rum's candid and painfully honest LadyData project which catalogs the collective wants of the complicated female brain. We probed the panel for some real world relationship advice you can use.
