Dating Relationship

The dating part of a relationship can be some of the most fun and romantic times between a couple. Being comfortable in a dating relationship can set the stage for a truly fantastic relationship that even goes beyond dating. Here are a few tips for the dating part of your relationship:

1. Relax.

Nothing is more troublesome in a dating relationship than seeming desperate for attention. Take it easy, and don’t make a big deal out of this whole «love» thing. You know that it’s going to happen. All you have to do is get out there, make sure that you are looking for it, and then trust that you will find it. You are definitely going to get the relationship you want, as long as keep trying. So there is no need to worry. Just relax and enjoy the dating experience.

2. Listen.

It’s natural to want to talk a lot when you are in a dating relationship. You want them too see how funny and clever and charming you are, and that you are a wonderful and caring person. That’s fine, but you also have to make sure that your date gets a chance too! When you listen to what they have to say, it shows that you are interested in who they are, and what makes them tick.

3. Be yourself.

This is very important and often overlooked in a dating relationship. There is no point trying to be someone that you’re not; you won’t enjoy it, and even if it seems to work, it will only cause you more trouble down the road.   A dating relationship is a chance to get to know the other person, and for the other person to get to know you. If you both pretend to be someone that you’re not, it isn’t going to help either of you.

4. Look your best.

We all know that there are more important things that looks in a dating relationship, but dressing up isn’t just about trying to look physically attractive. When you dress up, you are actually paying a respectful compliment to your date: you are saying «This date is exciting for me, and I want to make it special!». That’s a wonderful thing to say to someone!

5. Forget expectations.

Perhaps you feel that you have met your soul mate. Perhaps you want this person to be your new girlfriend or boyfriend? Maybe you can already hear wedding bells ringing merrily? No matter what you are hoping for, it’s better not to expect too much when you are starting out in a dating relationship.

Just see what happens. If you set too many expectations, a date can start to feel like a challenge; like you somehow have to accomplish all these things, otherwise you have wasted your time.

Don’t let a dating relationship become a mission to accomplish. Just focus on having fun and getting to know the other person. . . there will be plenty of time for wedding bells later.

6. Be lovable.

If you want somebody to love you, then you have to be the type of person that someone could love. Are you fun to be with? Are you caring? Are you honest? Are you the sort of person that you would want your brother or sister to date? Do you treat people with respect, and do you have respect for yourself as well?

If your answer to these questions is anything but «yes», then maybe you should work out why, and find a way to change the things about yourself that you don’t respect. For someone to love and respect you, you must first be able to love and respect yourself. Make sure that you do.

7. Enjoy yourself!

Dating relationships are fun! Don’t let it feel like you are under a lot of pressure to make a good impression. You are going out with a nice person, to have a good time and to get to know each other a little bit better. That’s great! Enjoy the experience!
