7 tips to know in dating

Category : Lifestyle

Dating is a lot of things, and it can sometimes be fun, enlightening, exciting, and sweet. However, there are times when it becomes laborious, awkward, painful, and repetitive especially if you are with the wrong person. However, no one defines dating as simple.

Merriam-Webster defines dating as a series of engagements done by two people looking to marry each other, or it can be a romantic appointment.
