Social intelligence is insight, knowledge and know-how about social situations. One aspect of social intelligence is being savvy in relating to the opposite sex in a romantic scenario.
Most people think the greatest value dating holds for them is mate selection. I believe the greatest value dating holds for most people is the development of romantic social intelligence.
Dating is a skill just like any other. Developing the skills to interact successfully with the opposite sex is a decision that can change a person's life dramatically. Feeling confidant in the ability to attract new partners gives people the peace of mind to weather most of life's romantic ups and downs.
When people have romantic social intelligence they are able to hold their own in romantic situations. They do not become intimidated, confused, overwhelm or discouraged by dating scenarios.
The ease and confidence that comes from having a high level of romantic social intelligence spills over into all other areas of a person's life. It makes dating a fun adventure and makes mate selection happier, healthier and more successful.
Food for thought.
