Best Proven Dating Tips of the Pros
It is no secret that dating is hard. What made it harder? The pandemic.
You may be telling yourself that there is no chance for you to find your perfect mate, but that is simply not true! All you must do is follow the proven methods of dating professionals.
Here are the best-proven dating tips from the pros themselves:
Know Your “Non-negotiables”
It is imperative to know what you are not willing to negotiate in terms of dating. This may include but is not limited to:
Loving cats versus dogs
Make sure you know your non-negotiables before you step out on a date. Furthermore, root down in your stance and do not allow yourself to waver from your non-negotiable. They are NON-NEGOTIABLE.
Do Not Lie
The next tip is to not lie—about ANYTHING. Of course, you want to impress your potential new mate; however, lying is not the way to go about it.
It can be devastating to the remainder of your relationship to begin a new one on the foundation of lies. A prerequisite of a new relationship must be honesty and trust. Do not be deceptive.
Do Not Limit Your Options
It may be easy to say, “I don’t want to date someone who already has kids” or someone in a different age bracket, but do not do this. Limiting your dating options can remove potentially incredibly future partners from your dating pool.
If you are in a higher dating margin—such as the 40s and up—odds are, they have been married before and have children. All you will be doing is narrowing your own dating pool—and happiness.
No More “Texting and Calling” Rules
You have undoubtedly heard of “Wait 3 days before you call them”. This is ridiculous. You do not need to wait that long.
In fact, allowing the other person to know you are interested right off the bat paves the way for them to return the sentiment. Why wait longer to be happy with someone than you have to?
Know Who You Are
Dating can be quite difficult if you don’t know what you want. What can make it even more difficult is if you don’t know yourself.
Dr. Nikki Goldstein, a sex and relationship expert, reveals, “Building strength and self-confidence is key. The reality of it is that dating can be hard, and feelings can be hurt. But if you know who you are and how you want to be treated, then you won’t allow someone (or the dating scene) to continually hurt or discourage you.”
Therefore, if you do not know yourself, it will be harder for you to find the right person with whom you can genuinely connect. Sit down with yourself and begin to examine who you are, what makes you tick, what you like, and what you don’t like.
Be Emotionally Available
Along with the previous section, you must know yourself and be emotionally available. It is almost impossible to begin a new relationship with the openness of someone ready to date.
If you are not emotionally available, you may want to take time to relearn yourself and build more self-confidence before stepping back out onto the dating field. Unhealed traumas and pains can hurt yourself even more—and others.
When you are ready to date again, follow these proven tips for successful dating. Stay confident and true to yourself, be honest with who you are and what you want, and enjoy yourself!
