It’s not realistic to pretend to be someone that you are not for any length of time, and the longer you leave it before confessing, the harder it will be.
However much you like your new date, don’t ignore obvious red flags that this relationship is a bad idea.
Also be wary of anyone who seems secretive about their life or if they seem to be hiding something. Be honest with yourself, is there a chance you might be self sabotaging?
If you have negative thoughts running through your head like ‘I’ll never settle down’; ‘no-one I’ve met so far has been good enough’; or ‘he’s not going to see me again, so why bother trying today’.
If you met through a dating site, you need to be clear with each other what happens next.
Are you keeping your profile active and messaging other people? Whatever decision you make is fine, but you need to be clear with each other or run the risk of one of you getting hurt.
More and more, we’re finding our jobs, our cars, and our homes online – and we’re also finding love.
