Have you ever thought about what really makes you stand out from the crowd? Whether you’re a man or woman, the key ingredient is “Confidence”.
Confidence is attractive and we’re drawn to people who feel secure, decisive, and know what they want in life and in a relationship. So, how do you become the kind of confident person that you’ve always wanted to be and give your dating life a confidence boost? Here are a few hits and tips to get you started…
Let go of bad experiences
You’ve had some bad experiences in the past with dating, right? But it’s what you do next that counts. Put them behind you and move on with a positive attitude, rather than letting them define your dating journey.
Get yourself in the right mindset
Rather than putting pressure on yourself that you may be meeting your soulmate or ‘The One’, try to have an open mind and refrain from making any judgments until the date is over.
Celebrate who you are
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves why we’re the lovely person we are. Spend some time writing down all the things that make you, ‘you’ and ask your family and friends. Rather than thinking about any negative aspects, find all the things that make you uniquely special and you’ll start to feel more confident.
Think “Do I like them?” instead of “Do they like me?”
So many people obsess over making the other person like them back that they forget it’s a two-way street. Instead, think about what’s more important to you: feeling popular in the dating world, or finding the right person who you can share your life with.
Step out of your comfort zone
The quickest way to grow your confidence is to push yourself out of your comfort zone. We’re not saying it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3, but… pushing out from your comfort zone will give you a great feeling when you succeed and will boost your confidence to new levels.
Put it into practice
The only way you’ll get more confident in dating is to just go out on dates. Keep putting yourself out there. The more dates you go on will help you to take it all in your stride and your confidence will start to sky rocket because of it. ‘Practice makes perfect’ applies to just about everything — including dating.
Learning to be confident on dates is easier said than done, but if you give yourself plenty of opportunity to practice, you’ll become your best self on every date and eventually meet someone who likes you for exactly who you are.
