In a piece for News.com.au, Hocking explained that there's a "firm yes" or "hard no" when it comes to marrying a particular person.

She wrote: "I usually do it after quite a few dates, say three months down the track. I take a good look at the bloke and then imagine myself at the start of the wedding aisle.

"I think to myself, 'If I arrived at the aisle and looked down to see them waiting for me at the other end, would I light up and be genuinely excited to see them? Would I think to myself ‘How the heck did I get so lucky to marry them?"

She added: "Or would I just think, ‘OK cool, they seem like a good person, and I reckon I could have a decent life with them, so let’s do this.’"

The dating expert who also hosts the podcast Kinda Sorta Dating says that if you are going for the first option, then you are in it for the long run and you better stay with your partner. 

However, if the second option is tempting you then it is best for both that you end the relationship without moving ahead. 

She added: "The second option doesn’t offer an extraordinary love, it offers a safe love."

Talking about the modern dating ways, Hocking makes it a point to tell people that they should definitely keep their eyes and ears open for catching red flags on the dating apps.

An example to quote, one such red flag is potentially deleting their dating profile only a few days into the relationship with you.

This behavior Hocking says points towards borderline "stalker."

Another red flag she points out if your partner is constantly uploading pictures of their torso or from a distance then it is better that you stay away, as the former indicates excessive vanity and the latter that they are trying to conceal their identity.
