Check out the ladies’ list of dos and don’ts for single ladies this summer.
“Stay open minded and don’t bring any of your old baggage into your new relationship. Know who you are and where you want to go, and understand that you’re building up each other to be much more powerful together.” – LisaRaye McCoy
“Don’t let go of your personal life. Don’t stop hanging out with your friends. Don’t start slacking at work. Don’t start making everything about him. Because then, you’re not interesting, and let’s be realistic – there’s something about a man that enjoys that animalistic chase.” – Denise Vasi
“You have to have some mystery.” – Charity Shea
“Don’t answer every phone call and every text. Don’t make yourself overly available.” – Denise Vasi
“Don’t date a man who’s broke.” – Lisa Raye
“I love Steve Harvey’s 90-day rule. Keep your mystery.” – Charity Shea
“Remember, if they’re really right for you, they’ll wait for you.” – Denise Vasi
