For those who are single and dating, this past year definitely had its challenges. With social distancing measures in place and spending more time alone, finding love could feel close to impossible. Just because dating isn’t business as usual, doesn’t mean you need to wait until the pandemic is over to meet someone. There is actually an upside to getting to know someone virtually “at first” and here are a few tips whether you are beginning to date again or are new to the online dating scene.
So often people have a list of qualities in others that they aren’t willing to embody themselves. Your energy is everything and it does not lie.
Get on a face to face call early on so that you can see if there is a connection and save yourself time. I see clients text for weeks and then when they finally meet someone in person, there is little connection.
Intention impacts your outcome just like cause and effect and the energy and vibe you put forth will produce the outcome.
Let things happen naturally and let it be fun.
Determine your level of comfort in terms of meeting up in-person/intimacy.
It is a practice in getting to know yourself and the other person. If it’s not a fit, what can you take away and learn about yourself? Everything is feedback. Remember, we all have stories we bring to the table that can cloud the reality of what is.
Ghosting has become more common and it does not feel good for anyone. Most people take it as a form of rejection and seek some type of closure. If you are ghosted, though it can feel unfair or unjust, don’t take it personally. The person who ghosted you saved you time by checking out early. If you are wanting to ghost to avoid potentially hurting someone, simply communicate that you are not interested and then move on. Simple honest communication goes a long way.
Real confidence is magnetic and sexy. How is your relationship with you, really? Do you value yourself and what you bring to the table? Do you recognize you are worthy of great love for who you truly are and not based on what you do or have, but by just being inherently you? This is where all the work really matters. The better you feel about you, the more genuine connections you will attract.
