In the game of dating there are many rules, and depending on the people involved those rules can be totally different. I think there are two different types of dating experiences. First is the traditional dating experience, where you meet your potential mate and you go out to see if there is chemistry. During this time you may not be dating other people until you get an understanding or feeling if that relationship is going to work. There is also the non traditional dating experience, where you date multiple people until you find the person that sweeps you off your feet. During this time you basically have to keep a calendar of your dates, this way everything is organized and you do not confuse one date with another. Dating can be challenging because in the beginning stages you are unsure if the other person is also dating other people. So how do you handle this situation?
Some would say to only date one person at a time and see where that relationship goes first. Others may say date as many people as you can until you find the one. I say, until you have the TALK it is all free will. What is the TALK? The TALK is when you ask the person where you all stand. What type of relationship is this? Is this exclusive? Until those questions are answered there is no telling what the other person is doing.
Here are 3 tips for dating someone new:
- Be Yourself- During a first date everyone is trying to put their best foot forward, but after awhile the real you will be exposed, so you mind as well be yourself from the start. No one appreciates a fraud.
- Know what you’re looking for- Have an idea of the type of person you want to be with and stand firm by your standards. For example, if you know for a fact you want to have children but the person you are dating is adamant about not having children, there is a big possibility you won’t be able to change their mind. Why waste your time?
- Have Fun- Ultimately enjoy the ride. Remember you have to meet a few frogs before one turns into your prince charming. Don’t give up, your significant other is somewhere out there
