If you've just come out of a marriage or long relationship, you may or may not be ready for the mentality that comes with getting back into the dating game. There could be lingering perspectives on how a person should treat you on a date based on your spouse or some emotional distress that will prevent you from showing off your amazing personality. Whatever the case, here are some great reminders to help you boost your brain power and get back out there!
You're beautiful on the inside and outside.
I know this is easier said than done but if you don't feel this way, fake it 'til you make it! Confidence is key to becoming charismatic and building relationships. If he sees you as someone who is outgoing and comfortable in your own skin, you'll have a better chance of creating a deeper connection with him.
Approach mature dating with the goal to learn.
Listening is a give-take relationship, just like with anything, When you're out on a date, share your experiences and life stories but make sure to take away key points of interest for your sake and his. This is a good mentality to approach dating because it allows you to narrow down the most important aspects that will intensify your attraction to your date.
Leave the mental baggage at home.
You've been through a marriage and you know the struggles you'd like to avoid. That doesn't mean you want to whip out the topics of money, religion, or politics on the first date. If those things are incredibly important to you, preface your dates with those disclosures so you both don't waste your time.
Let the date flow naturally.
Whether or not you know what you're looking for, don't go into a date with expectations. You may feel pressed for time or eager to find the ideal match but a little bit of patience can go a long way. If you've picked someone for a date, it means they have potential so see where that potential leads you.
The date is all about getting past that first barrier. Make sure the first impression you leave is a positive one full of confidence and optimism.
