The Wonderful World of Dating. What a fun placeâ€¦or maybe not. Dating is something that is personal and individual. There are no set rules or circumstances in dating. Every person is different and every date is different. There are some guidelines and basic ideals that will help you when you are stepping out into the dating world.
Life is not a fairy tale, although love can seem to start out that way, it wonâ€™t end up that way. That is where the contentment we spoke of earlier comes in. Some people see contentment as settling for something less than they are truly worth but like I said, contentment means you never have to be afraid of anything ever again, you have a partner that has your back no matter what.
You set things up so you would start attracting better quality people. Losers be gone! Once you did that dating became easier and more fun. Even if the first date didnâ€™t result in a second date you still had fun. Why? because you kept your expectations under control and didnâ€™t read too much into the date. Too many people expect that just because there is an initial attraction that that person is â€œthe oneâ€, and that is not always the case.
When you are dating the best thing that you can do is just be yourself. There is no point trying to be someone youâ€™re not and there is no point lying about things to try and impress a date. If a relationship develops they will soon find out the truth and then may feel hurt that you lied to them. You canâ€™t build a successful relationship that has a foundation of lies so it is best to be honest from the start and then you can meet someone that will really accept you for who you are. Sincerity and honesty are required for a good foundation to have a successful relationship.
You need to be able to have a conversation with people. If you are not able to talk to someone, you are not going to be able to go on successful dates. You need to be able to have basic conversations. This is not to say that you have to be able to pour out your heart and soul to a date. You just need to be able to have a basic conversation and keep someoneâ€™s interest and attention in you.
Honesty is another very important part of dating. If you are not able to be honest with yourself and with those that you come in contact with, you are not going to get anywhere. You will immediately set yourself up for failure if you are dishonest. Being honest with you is just as important as being honest with others.
You need to know exactly what you want out of things and what you are looking for in a date. If you have false hopes or unrealistic ideas, you are not going to get anywhere. You are setting yourself up for failure before you even start. Look within yourself and decide what it is that you want before you start looking for someone to date.
Be particular about where you go to look for people to date. Bars and nightclubs are bad places to meet people. Most often people in these places are under the influence of alcohol. They are impaired and not capable of entering into a relationship or even a simple date.
