Dating can be really hard for women, and finding that right guy can sometimes seem impossible. There are many different things that can make dating more difficult for women. We will discuss some of those reasons and how to overcome them in this post.
Are You ready To Date?
Women may be afraid about the potential outcome when they first start dating someone new because they feel like it is too soon to invest into a relationship. Are you looking for fun or a serious relationship? Do you want to be friends first or start dating right away? These are all things that women may think about when they are just starting out.
Tackle Your Fear of Rejection
Many people, and especially women, have a fear of rejection which can make them hesitant to go on another date with someone. It can feel like such an investment in time and emotion if the other person does not show the same interest back. However, there is always a chance that those feelings could change over time and the connection can grow with more dates.
Online dating sites and texting makes rejection much easier to take. Before investing in meeting someone in person, you can feel them out online and look for warning signs. What is their sense of humor like? What are their hobbies? Many times, it is far easier to end these connections before ever having to meet them in person. Don’t be afraid to listen to warning signs and weed out men before meeting.
Safety is Always Important
After watching too many movies and hearing about online-dating horror stories many women can be reserved about meeting someone in person. Meeting someone through a friend is much easier at they come pre-qualified by someone that you already trust. For many women personal safety becomes an issue when dating for the first time with someone new.
These reservations can be easily overcome by meeting in a public place and keeping personal details to a minimum. Double-dating is always an option. it is said that there is safety in numbers so a guy should understand you wanting to bring a friend along for a first meeting. And chances are that you will be more comfortable around someone you know well.
Women Are Not Always Interested in Dating
Are you ready to date or are you just bored? Dating is hard for men also so be honest with yourself about what you want. If it is just fun that you want and not a relationship then enjoy yourself and don’t worry about what the guy thinks. If you want a relationship, then consider dating someone who is not of interest to you just for fun. Getting attached can be all encompassing to the point where you can’t stop thinking about seeing him again. Step back and take a breather. There is no rush.
But some women love that they are in control of their date night destiny all by themselves. It is empowering to keep it casual with no expectations or commitments while also being spontaneous and enjoying every moment as if it could be your last.
Low Self-esteem or High Standards
Many women won’t admit that they have low self-esteem. They might think that they have high standards, but the truth is it’s probably both.
Low self-esteem can lead to feeling like you don’t deserve a good guy so instead of dating someone who would be great for you, you hold out for an even better one which only leads to more disappointment and loneliness.
High standards could make it hard to find anyone at all because your expectations are too high and not realistic in today’s world of dating apps.
Too Many Choices
Anxiety from being overwhelmed with looking at too many profiles and receiving bad pick-up lines can be daunting. This can actually cause a lot of stress and make online dating more like a job than a fun experience. Just relax to avoid getting overwhelmed and enjoying the fun of dating.
It sounds ridiculous but try being single with no expectation or commitment from yourself other than just having fun every time date night comes around. This way there will be less pressure on finding “the right” person and the real goal is to just to enjoy being out. You can avoid the jealousy dating games and just be true to yourself. This will allow you to let your guard down and the chances of meeting someone without the pressure is far better.
