Are you the type who loses hope if a date doesn’t turn out the way you expected? Do you judge every date as a marriage prospect? Do you try so hard to impress that you end up scaring off the other person? Or are you just unsure about the whole process and would rather just binge watch Netflix than suffer one . more. date.
One of the most common mistakes singles make is putting too much pressure on themselves. Often times, they think they have to be in the dating game or, if they are in a relationship, that “it has to work.” Truth of it is, just because you are single doesn’t mean you are available.
If you aren’t comfortable with yourself or the process, then you aren’t ready for a relationship. That’s okay.
Step back. Get in touch with yourself. Get current with what you want from life and a potential partner. To help with that process, here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Why are you dating?
- What do you have to offer?
- What will you do differently this time?
- Who is the type of person you would like to meet?
- What is important to you in a partner?
Knowing who you are and what you want out of a partner is the first step to dating.
