Not to mention coming out of a relationship, dating can be awkward at first.As someone who had been in a three-year long relationship, coming out of that heartbreak was definitely the hardest step, and going back into the dating game wasn't easy.
Practice holding your head up high and smiling at people as you make eye contact. You can’t literally walk with your head held high, but you can express your confidence in flattering pictures, the About Me section of your profile, and in written correspondence with other Meet Mindful members.
The worst thing you can do is compare yourself to other women.
I didn't know how to talk, didn't know how to present myself because I lacked the confidence due to the prior relationship, and I made everything awkward for a while.
No one wants to deal with that nonsense, so, to ease the tension, I'm hoping this small list of advice will help you on your future dates.
You’re two different people which is why comparing yourself to others doesn’t solve (or help) anything.
Again, focus on building your confidence and having fun.
Imagine meeting a great guy in a bar, or even in a gym, store, etc. In fact, listening to these serious and personal stories on a first date is a major turn-off for most people.
Instead, let your date get to know the real you—how fun you are, what you like to do in free time, etc.
Instead, take the time to get to know someone through private messaging first; if (and only when) you feel as though you have a connection with an individual, give your phone number or email address for continued, off-site correspondence. Or you finally decide you will accept an invitation to meet someone you met online.
