Dating should be fun and adventurous. You always have the option to walk away when you don’t feel a connection. It shouldn’t feel uncomfortably forced or one-sided and you should have a good idea if there is a connection within the first date. If you don’t feel anything or you don’t have much in common with them, move on. Be true to your self and always have respectful boundaries.
Some friends and family members will feel a strong loyalty to your partner due to obvious reasons. (They were there before you came along.) That is a natural progression after a breakup. It is difficult for everyone when they feel they have to choose sides and unfortunately that has to happen in some cases.
The old expression: “You snooze you lose,” can often be a very true statement in dating circumstances. Standing back and taking your time to initiate the first date can put you on the back burner and less of a texting priority when it comes to potential suitors!
Relationships are about partnerships, but each person is an individual. A couple can be on very different paths, encountering various challenges along the way. If your partner opens up to you about a specific problem they’re having, or if they’re struggling with their health or well-being, be supportive.
Today I answer Christina’s question. My Husband Prefers Being With His Ex and Their Child Over Spending Time With Me & Our Son. Dear Sybersue,
Cleanliness and making the effort to look (and smell) your best on a date will make or break whether there is a second date! First impressions are everything, especially with how hard it is to date today. Stand out in a good way!
