5 WAYS TO AVOID LOSING YOURSELF ON A DATE

  1. This is a comprehensive and thoughtful list! I have so many thoughts lol…

    I think I have the opposite problem, I tend to lose myself in relationships… On dates I’m usually carefree and throw caution to the wind bc my attitude is, Pfft take it or leave it I’d rather be real… But then that strong side starts to wane (unfortunately) as the relationship progresses!

    I love the point about thinking of your loved ones on dates and how they make you feel and trying to emulate that, that’s a great tip bc oftentimes I feel like we try to make consolations for other people’s shortcomings..

    Great point about dating within your league.. I find this important bc of the self-reflection part.. Not everyone is comfortable with self-reflection but u think that’s key in dating… I had a friend who I would describe is quite timid and introverted so it puzzled me when I asked her what her ideal mate was and she said “someone who is extroverted, quite outgoing and adventurous”… I have to admit, a part of me wanted to ask her the obvious question… Do you think someone, who is extroverted and adventurous, would like to partner up with someone who is the complete opposite? I never ended up saying that but your post made me think of that! Yes, self-reflection is KEY! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Amazing, omg we could share forever on this! Feel free to email me actually (if u want, no pressure!). On that last point, Iโ€™m actually an extrovert and my partner is full blown introvert. And itโ€™s weird but it works I think bc the difference is interesting and keeps it exciting. But also, we learn from each other. Iโ€™m able to get him out of his shell a little, and he helps me to kinda keep calm sometimes about things that I normally would just freak out about. What do you think? Soooo much more ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

      1. That’s true too, my husband and I are more opposites than two peas in a pod but somehow we work, I think it’s the sense of humour streak… ๐Ÿ˜‰
