If you’re looking to meet someone, you should be putting yourself out there and dating all kinds. It’s fun and can be very rewarding! But there is a fine line between going about it the right way and the wrong way and by no means should dating be a stress in your life. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to get a better understanding if you’re dating right.
Are you spending beyond your means?
Going further into debt to impress your dates is far from a smart move for you and actually slightly deceitful towards them. You don’t want or need someone to think you’re Ms. Money Bags to enjoy your time together.
Are you going after the same type again and again?
Dating is about meeting new people and learning more about what you want in a future partner. You need to keep an open mind and date different types of people so that you get the most out of your time spent on the dating scene.
Is your life in order?
If your career, living arrangements or relationships with friends and family are in disarray, make correcting those situations your number one priority.
Are you sleeping with most of people you meet?
You should not be sleeping with all your dates, especially if it’s for the wrong reasons. Be selective when bringing someone to the bedroom.
Do you find you’re feeling down on yourself?
Your dating life should result in ego boosts and a lift in spirits, not with you feeling low or bad about yourself. Cut anyone loose who isn’t adding value and happiness to your life.
Are you often leading people on?
Shying away from being honest about what you have to offer, or worse lying about it, is disrespectful and hurtful. Avoid this by being a grown up and be clear about what you are looking for early enough so that no one get’s hurt.
Identify which (if any) of the above points you identify with most and make a conscious decision to change or improve your ways. You are the one who will benefit in the long run.
