The other day I posted about how to ask for your needs to be met, and someone DM'ed me saying, "I love this! Why weren't we taught this in school??"
This couldn't be a more spot-on observation. Most of us have zero knowledge of how to date when we start dating. We jump in, feet first, and hope for the best. While this is great for gaining experience and learning about ourselves, it's also a quick path to creating dating habits that aren't helpful for our search for love.
Let's be real: plenty of people have not-so-great habits when it comes to dating, like not creating boundaries, having no clue what we want, and playing games because we think it'll attract a partner.
It's nothing to feel bad about since, again, no one taught us how to date!
But now that we're adults, we can reflect and change how we date. We can improve our dating skills to show up authentically and find a fulfilling relationship.
How do you do that? Here are some ways:
Asking for your needs to be met early on
Knowing the signs of someone emotionally unavailable
Working against your self-sabotaging habits
Creating a dating profile that attracts the right person; noteveryone
Learning tools to take care of your mental health along the way
Making these changes result in things like finally ending the cycle of emotionally available partners, a sense of ease while you date, feeling respected and appreciated in relationships, and knowing you're worthy of love.
The gist of all of this is:
Improve your dating skills = improve your dating life = improve the outcomes of dating.
