I’m Inexperienced with Dating, Help!

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.

    It is a nervous, jittery but thrilling experience when you first start dating!
