Founder Helen Croydon also writes about the benefits of what she calls the 'low maintenance relationship' in her latest book, Screw the Fairytale, which investigates 'alternative models of relationships to conventional marriage'.

After the 4th time I finally smartened up and focused on moving on.
I’ve now been dating a really great guy for over 2.5 years. Which brings us to the results of the survey I did last week.
In the beginning I was still hung up on Bad Boy, but distraction and detox (no contact with Bad Boy) really worked. Some of you were kind enough to answer my 60-second survey question: What is the single biggest challenge you’re dealing with in dating and relationships these days?
By comparison, just 25% of those with a high school diploma or less know someone who uses online dating – and just 18% know someone who has entered into a long-term relationship with someone they met this way.The phrase “finding a man who wants to be a grown-up” came up several times. This response summarized the challenge nicely: “Meeting a man who I feel compatible with, feeling attracted to that same man AND having him treat me well.” This is what all the online dating methods call the phase. I’ve come to realize that he is not good for me and have left twice but he has come back every time without promising me a future.I spent 9 months with a “bad boy,” who managed to break up with me 4 times in just 9 months.
