Social circles dating
If you are a woman in your mid-30s and wanting a child, put it out there.Sure, you’ll turn off some guys but better to have them turn away now then date them for six months and then hear they don’t really want kids. Often we hear what we want to hear instead of what is actually being said, because we believe we have the power to change someone.Dating is a deeply personal experience and can be quite triggering depending on how well you know yourself, but there are universal do’s and don’ts for all ages.Date online: In your 30s and 40s this is a must, even if you have a large social circle, go out all the time, and hate the idea.When I was single, I thought, when I meet someone, then I’ll go camping and get a dog. So I bought a tent, took my son camping, and eventually adopted a dog.
I have a client who met a cute guy online but it fizzled before they actually met.It then becomes obvious why they haven’t found what they are looking for. Don’t put too much heart into anyone until they truly show up in a way that feels real.They are attracting the wrong people based on their profile. Hook up in hope: Instant chemistry is awesome and can make you feel you’ve known the person your entire life, but be careful, I’ve witnessed much heartbreak from that instant connection without communication. Especially, in the frontier of online dating, there are tons of possibility, too many choices, which leads to fantasy. Lose yourself: Dating is just one aspect of your life. If you find yourself picking up your phone to see who’s reached out or to swipe to see who’s out there more than being out with friends, exercising or taking care of you, than maybe limit yourself to a determined daily time.By getting to know two to three people at the same time you are more likely to stay balanced and focused on your own life even when you do find chemistry with someone. Often we are dating in a haze, hoping we’ll be shown what we want when the right person comes along, but it doesn’t work that way.Know your attachment style: "Attached" by Amir Levine, M. I’m not asking about the obvious things like are they funny or do they like to travel?
