– Wendi L. Dumbroff discussed the importance of listening in romantic relationships – 

Wendi L. Dumbroff, MA, LPC, was again featured in “How to Purposefully Date for Marriage”, published by Wedding Wire.  In the article, Dumbroff offered expert insight on the importance of listening and decision making when you are seeking a lifelong partner. 

Dumbroff suggested listening closely to what your date is looking for down the road.

“If you find yourself on a date with a person who tells you they are not interested in a long-term relationship, believe them and move on.” She continued, “You don’t have to spend months (or years) of your life making them your project, or thinking you will be the one who finally changes their mind, only to be disappointed in the end.” 

She also explained the significance of seeking romantic partners who fit your criteria. It is best to make proactive decisions about the status of the relationship in the beginning. She explained: 

“It is much more difficult to end a relationship if you have developed strong feelings for someone, than to just go in a different direction when you first learn that you differ on deal breaking issues.” 

The same rule applies to establishing sexual preferences early on. 

“If sexual preferences are not discussed beforehand, it may lead to problems later on,” she warned.
