Paralysis by analysis is a real thing. Stop sitting on the sidelines, get in the game!
You will never feel ready, just start taking the first steps…
- Push yourself and be prepared to go outside your comfort zone.
- Acknowledge where you are starting from and set realistic goals. If you haven’t dated in a while, you may be overwhelmed with the multitude of apps, services, and the ways people are meeting one another. Ask for help. Ask people you admire how they are meeting people. Ask someone to help you research dating apps. Just talking about dating and/or downloading an app is a step in the right direction.
- Tell the people close to you that you want to start dating. Like setting an intention, once you say it out loud, it’s more likely to happen. Your friends can be your accountability partners. Ask them if they have friends who are single. Ask them to keep you in mind for fun events.
- Start being social without the pressure of “being on a date”. If friends or family invite you to do something, GO! Get in the habit of saying yes.
- Be optimistic. Look for the positive wherever you go. Start to see possibilities everywhere. Start a gratitude journal. Remind yourself how awesome you are.
- When surrounded by couples, listen, watch and learn. Pay attention to communication styles, body language and how people are treating each other. Think about how you want to show up for your future partner. Start imagining how you will speak to them and how your interactions will sound.
- Go on a date! Just do it. Remember to stay in your lane, your job is to be yourself. You are not responsible for the other person and they are not responsible for you.
