The Four Most Important Dating Lessons
What do you think of when you hear the word “dating?” If the first word that comes to mind is “fun,” you’re doing dating right. If it’s anything else, you could use some help in the love department. As the go-to dating service in Houston, one of the tricks we frequently tell singles in Houston is to take a good look at the past. . . and then learn from it! Anyone can be a good dater (aka someone who is open to love and willing to go after it), all it takes is a little perspective and perseverance.
To get you started, we’re sharing four dating lessons most people learn the hard way, but you can learn right now:
Honesty is always the best policy!
Forget the fact that it’s a cliché. It’s true! People looking for long-lasting relationships are really looking for someone they can trust unconditionally. So don’t start things off on the wrong foot by telling a little fib on the first or second date. Be honest, and wonderful things will happen.
Break ups are great learning opportunities!
Having your heart broken is never fun, and we know that looking back on how things ended can sometimes be painful and unpleasant, but if you want to grow, it’s an important step. Take a good look at what went wrong, what you did and didn’t like, and what made you feel so right in the relationship before things went wrong.
You’re responsible for your own happiness!
The great thing about lasting and loving relationships is that they make everything seem better. From watching a movie on a rainy day to something as mundane as grocery shopping, everything seems better when you’ve found Mr. or Mrs. Right, but the truth is you can’t wait for someone else to make you happy. You have to be the person you want to be and go after what you want most in order to truly be content.
You get what you're putting out there!
It’s not uncommon for single professionals, especially those in Houston, to put finding someone special on the backburner. However, if you’re not giving your love life the time of day it deserves, it won’t be very kind to you in return. You have be positive, and open yourself up to the amazing possibilities of connecting with someone new.
Take our word for it: these are the lessons you’re going to want to learn sooner rather than later. So, remember these, get out there and look forward to what’s ahead!
