The series ran on ABC from September 17, 2002 to April 15, 2005.The first season focused on Paul being left in charge of the kids after Cate takes a full-time job as a nurse, with comedic emphasis on his often strict rules concerning his daughters and dating.The series' name and premise were derived from the book 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter: And Other Tips from a Beleaguered Father (Not That Any of Them Work) by W. While 8 Simple Rules was renewed for a second season and production had begun, Ritter's sudden death in September 2003 left the series in an uncertain position.After a hiatus, the series returned and continued without Ritter, with the producers deciding to kill off Paul and not replace him.
I realized that it had very little to do with the men, but more to do with how the women approached dating.
It is overwhelming and can end a relationship before it starts. Hopefully, by this point, this goes without saying. It devastates so many women when a first date does not become a relationship.
Men will easily get turned off by a woman who calls or texts too much.
It is heartbreaking to see them make the same mistakes over and over again.
All too often, I see friends continually devastated by their dating experiences. Don’t give them your power by allowing yourself to feel bad.
