How to not take dating seriously


The ups and downs in this cycle can make you feel like you are unbalanced and have whiplash.

While it can be fun to go on a bunch of dates with different people, it can also make you feel like you’re floating alone on your own little island of solitude.

I find that super intriguing, want to go get a drink? After a while, it’s easy to feel like starting your collection of cats and totally giving up on the idea of ever meeting the right person.

To continue to date without this emotional cycle was difficult but essential.

Here is how I stopped the painful experience of getting my self-worth tied up in my dating experiences.

In the two-and-a-half hours I leave the house each week, is he going to trip on me at Starbucks while I’m nervously palming my skinny hazelnut latte and completely avoiding eye contact?

Will I lock eyes with him at the library while I’m researching just how relationships actually work? I see you’re clutching every book on love ever written.

So many people carry around the same negative thoughts about their desirability.
