Just like everything else in life, dating also comes with its ups and downs. But, before you get involved in a relationship, it is important for you to remind yourself why you are dating in the first place. You should date and spend time with a person who will give what you want and need. When it comes to dating and relationship, everyone should deserve only the best. Having said that, what is the most important thing you need to keep reminding yourself when you are out there sharing meals and drinks with girls while looking for love? The answer is to stay true to yourself. How can you do that?
Well, here are five traits of successful daters you need to know:
1. You can't escape from someone you're attracted to
If you fantasize of dating a tall, sexy, blonde woman, no one can stop you. If you want to date a lady who is a high school teacher, or a model, or someone who’s both, it means that you know to whom you are attracted to and who will be a good partner to you at the end of the day. So, don’t fight it. Convincing yourself about someone who is perfect for you in paper when that’s not the person you feel attracted to will only disappoint further down the road.
2. Never settle for less than you deserve.
It is a bad idea to put too much effort into a woman if you know for sure that she’s not the right girl for you and not going to make you happy. If you want to date a woman, first be true to yourself. If you want a girlfriend and after going out with her for few times, you find that she’s having second thoughts about you or realize that she can’t commit to a long-term relationship, don’t go out with her again. It’s nothing but a waste of your time and effort, both for you and her.
3. Remember you can't change someone
Guys, if you happen to date a woman who says she doesn’t want a man, listen to her. Don’t attempt to make her into one of your pet projects. Pursue or court a woman who wants to be in a relationship and wants to be your girlfriend. Don’t date a girl because you want her to be your significant other.
4. Have confidence in yourself
When you realize you are confident and awesome, people around you will feel it too. When you compliment and appreciate yourself, other people will compliment and appreciate you. You will only have fun dating and enjoyable if you realize how great you are. Always tell yourself that you are a great catch and you should only be dating a woman who is chasing you.
5. Always be true to yourself
When a man meets a woman they are attracted to, he turns into the man of her dreams. This isn’t healthy. It isn’t reality. Relationships don’t work this way. High expectations can destroy a relationship. Remember that honesty is the best policy. So, instead of turning yourself into someone your girlfriend wants, be true to yourself and who you really are because your true self will eventually come out someday.
