When it comes to dating there isn’t any shortage of suggestions. But, there is one thing in common to most dating tips. All are about living in the moment but learning from the past. Here are some more of our favorite dating tips. Enjoy!
1. I’m Enough For Me
Some men and women dread the idea of being alone so much that they keep jumping from one relationship to the next. This isn’t good. You need to be confident, happy and comfortable on your own before you start dating.
2. Don't Assume Anything
You and girlfriend have been dating for six months, and just think that you both are exclusive. But, most of us rightfully know that it’s untrue. Ask him or her to know what the current status of your relationship is, and don’t be afraid to express your true intentions about the relationship.
3. Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Do something new. If your boyfriend or girlfriend wants to go hiking or biking in the mountains, don’t hesitate or over think about it. Just do it.
4. Do Not Settle
Always settle for the best, don’t settle for second best. Maybe you feel stressed out because you’re 35, and still haven’t found Mr. Right, but that shouldn’t compel to settle for someone not right for you. Ultimately, you'll be much happier being single than wasting time with the wrong man or woman.
5. Learn From the Past
Before you embark on a new relationship, take some time to reflect and learn why your last relationship didn't work. Was there a reason or problem that you struggled to resolve? Are you always getting involved with people who aren’t right for you? Whether it’s right or wrong for us, understanding ourselves is the key to a brighter dating future.
6. Trust Your Instincts
Your instincts are a gift. Don’t ignore your guts when it tells you that something is wrong about the cool guy or that lovely woman you just met. Always keep your eyes open, and listen to your inner self.
7. The Man List
Who doesn’t like the idea of writing down all of the qualities and behaviors that you want to see in your future boyfriend or girlfriend? Knowing what you want is a powerful feeling, but it’s important to keep your list short and lists only the qualities that matter to be in a committed relationship.
8. Preserve Your Own Identity
You meet a great guy or gal, and you drop everything that makes you, “YOU.” This isn’t good for you or the new relationship either. Maintain your own sense of self, passion, and friendships will keep you balanced in your life, and will also make you a more desirable partner.
Many women get into a relationship with partners not right for them. But, they still continue having relationships with because they think that they could change something about their boyfriends. Let’s be clear – people don’t change. So, it’s highly likely that he isn't going to change. It doesn’t matter whether you both move in together or get married. If you are dating someone and finds it difficult to accept some traits or habits of your partner, it's time you look for someone else.
