We all desire meaningful friendships and relationships. Dating is often the means by which we develop such friendships, explore compatibility and consider continuing on into the future together.Many parents don't tell their children how to properly date, pursue courtship or even assess a future spouse.
Is it any wonder we have such a difficult time doing all of the above.Here are some Powerful Keys to Alleviate and Overcome Disappointment when Dating: 1. Make friends first and have safe fun.
Maintain personal respect and don't get too serious too soon. Don't have unrealistic expectations.2. Guard your heart and set boundaries.
Don't allow anyone to pressure you into something you don't feel comfortable with.3. Remember, your past does not determine your future. Though you may have been merely tolerated in your past, someone is going to exuberantly celebrate you in your future.4. Refuse to erect emotional walls and be overly cautious.
Love requires spontaneity and vulnerability. Don't be afraid of getting disappointed. Strive to not disappoint yourself by limiting your relational opportunities by way of your own predispositions and erroneous assumptions.
5. Cultivate a love for yourself, which shall uphold you no matter what occurs in your relationships. Value and affirm yourself. Get rid of negative self talk and celebrate you today for no reason at all. You are special and that is enough reason!.
6. When alone enjoy your season of soul-searching as you come to a greater level of self awareness. Discover and be established in your identity.7. Identify your values and beliefs. Don't deviate from them when assessing future relational compatibility.
Remember what you tolerate will perpetuate and dominate.8. Give yourself to personal growth, enrichment and new challenges. Take up a sport or hobby. Develop a new skill. Travel somewhere you've always dreamed of.
Expand your mind.9. Give others the benefit of the doubt and guard against seeing them through the eyes of your past relationships. Everybody deserves the right of being innocent before being assumed guilty.10. Live wholeheartedly.
Love fearlessly. Laugh joyously and attract new love expectantly. Smile! It improves the value of your face. Happy people are attractive people.
Remember the sun always shines above the clouds. Lift up your head!.11.
Set your intent as to what you want relationally and patiently wait believing that the universe itself will conspire to give you what you want when you don't settle for less. Believe for the best and in the meantime be your best.12. Remember what you are seeking is seeking you! You would not desire someone with such qualities unless they already existed. Rest assuredly in faith therefore that you will in due time discern and attract a perfect suitable to your needs and preferences. In the meantime, keep working on you!.
13. Locate and position yourself appropriately to meet a person with your unique interests and values. Don't just follow your friends wherever they go. Oranges don't grow in Alaska no matter how many of their friends go there. Find what is of interest to you and purpose to get involved therein. Put yourself back into circulation and happily date again!.
