I take for granted the fact that not everyone has spent most of their adult life dating. My apologies dating newbies! Here’s how to date when you’re inexperienced:
1. Don’t Rush ANYTHING
Everyone starts somewhere. Your dating life isn’t a race to the finish, so go at your own pace.
2. Do ONLY what you’re Comfortable doing
Start at your own pace and only do things you want to do. Don’t like drinking? Don’t go to bars on dates? Don’t want to have sex, don’t. Simple as that.
3. Comparison is the Thief of Joy
Dating should be fun! It will be significantly less fun if you’re comparing your experience to your friends/people who write blogs. Trust me, you don’t need a “I was mugged on a date” story.
4. Embrace your Nervousness
Everyone was inexperienced once. Overcome your nerves by embracing your inexperience. Open up and say “This is new to me”. Doing so will scare away the ones you wouldn’t want to date.
5. You’ll make a lot of mistakes, and that’s Okay
You’re going to make a lot of mistakes when it comes to dating. With over 10 years of dating experience, online and offline, and I still make dating mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes! You will too and remember, it’s okay.
Good Luck Out There.
