How to Handle Dating Fears?

Unfortunately, the notions of dating and disappointment go together from time to time. Moreover, this is one of the crucial factors preventing singles from going on dates again and again. Even if we claim we are not afraid of rejection and don’t expect anything special from our new date, actually we do.

Every time staying in front of the mirror when getting prepared for the evening with a new would be partner subconsciously we hope that he/she may become our one and only. Every time after not a very successful date we realize that we were wrong once again and here comes the disappointment.

By the way, having read hundreds of articles and interviews devoted to matchmaking issues I come to the thought that men and women have absolutely different expectations when going on a first date thus, preparing the ground for mutual disappointment and misunderstanding. There are not too many single men out there who tend to launch long term relationships with the lady they’ve just met while women’s plans of being together usually go far away.

So, what do we need to do to make the process of dating easier and get rid of unpleasant emotions? Don’t take things too close to heart and stop making plans before your relationships actually become relationships. Treat dating as a pleasant and exciting game where each new step just makes you closer to the prize. I don’t persuade you to become cynics, no! I just want you to become realists who don’t have any illusions about new people.

As soon as you learn to take things as they are, your life will become easier and your communication with others will get to absolutely another level. Don’t think about your future too much and take one day at a time. This will definitely help you relax and start enjoying your life right now.

  • dating is about YOU. What makes YOU happy. You shouldn’t have to fear it! It should be fun! Get out there! And hell, if they hurt you, they were not worth it anyway:)

  • Your past experiences [good or bad] make you who you are today. Don’t fear dating but be causous, don’t look for a relationship, relax it will happen.

  • I don’t have much of a problem flirting with guys but when I feel like they want something more I get really freaked out and pull back. I’m afraid of awkward silences and rejection. Its a self confidence issue that I really need to work on. It sounds like you may too. Idk how much help I can give you because, as you can see, I’m a bit of a mess too. I would say take baby steps. Start with flirting for example. I also think things will get better as you get older. You grow more confidence and you aren’t the same little timid teenage anymore. At least that is what I’m hoping 🙂

  • take it slow. Someone will come eventually, everyone has their match somewhere though it’s not always easy to find! I know how you feel about men always seemin to want to hurt you. I have been in crappy situations too.

  • It’s hard to find someone you can fully trust and count on. If you meet someone you like, don’t automatically jump to the conclusion that “they’re the one” and also don’t assume they are scum. Like i said, take it slow, get to know their personality
