How to Know When You're Ready to Date
The age old question of how do you know when you are ready to date again seems to surface frequently in my coaching conversations. Often, my clients share with me that a family, friend, or colleague felt it was too early for them to date again after a major life event, divorce, or the ending of a long relationship.
My clients often ask me for guidance on how to know when they are truly "ready" to date again. I will be honest with you... I don't have the perfect answer as to how many months or years someone should wait before venturing back out into the dating world. Every person heals at a difference pace and only you know when you are truly ready. So rather than shaming yourself for putting yourself out there again based on what someone else thinks is best for you, ask yourself these three very important questions:
- "Why is now the right time for me to begin dating again?"
- "What am I really looking for and who do I desire to attract into my dating life?"
- "Am I looking for a relationship or just to experience casual dating?"
To give you more guidance on this topic, I invite you to check out a short video clip from a recent interview discussing this topic in more detail. >>> Watch it now
This is where the internal preparation occurs as you step back into the world of digital dating in 2018. The advice I give every client is to be intentional about who you want to attract into your life. Ask yourself what you're really available for and if you are willing to repeat old patterns of attracting the wrong relationships... Because, if you don't change the way you approach dating, you will never break free of the patterns that keep you frustrated, sad, angry, and lonely.
I want to personally invite you to schedule a consultation with me so we can dive a little deeper to see why these feelings are coming up and how much they are affecting your ability to attract the LOVE and relationship you deeply desire. Let's talk about taking a new approach to dating that will get you the results you really desire and allow you to experience the joy of companionship and being loved & respected in a fulfilling, lasting relationship.
