Are you ready for a new relationship?

Are you ready for a new relationship?

Relationships are not black and white. Is the old relationship really dead? Should I be going out to meet someone else? Or should I just wait to see how my old relationship pans out? Sometimes we struggle to know when is the time to take the step to see who else is out there for us.

Are you ready for a new relationship?

You may be missing the companionship of the opposite sex and would like to take the plunge and start meeting new people. It is important that you have dealt with any relationship baggage before you return to the dating scene. Perhaps you could ask yourself the following questions to learn if you are ready to move on, or are still dealing with a past relationship.

Are you able to speak of the past relationship without feeling angry or bitter about the way it ended. This kind of reaction may be a turn-off to potential new love interests and may indicate you are still grieving.

If your ex contacted you to rekindle the relationship how would you respond? If your immediate response is to take him/her back, you might not be ready to participate in a new healthy relationship.

Do you talk about the relationship or your ex a lot? If you find yourself in conversations with your friends or family that lead to a story involving your ex, the situation is still very much  at the forefront of your mind and you may need to take more time to heal any hurt caused by the breakup.

Can you speak of the relationship in a positive way? Recounting stories, accepting the relationship for what it was, realising what you may have learnt from this relationship is a strong sign that you are moving on. If you still get anxious or upset when you see your ex or look at a photo, you might need more time to heal.

Everyone’s journey is different and we all take different amounts of time to grieve. But do encourage yourself to let go and move on. Once you feel you are ready, try going out and having fun without it needing to result in a relationship straight away. Give yourself positive self talk and remember that good things still await you and you will find that someone special at the right time.

Ask for his number. It is easy

“No” is just a word. It doesn’t mean anything else about you!

If you asked someone for a contact to catch up again and they said “No,” don’t make it mean anything about you. There are many reasons why they may have declined. Most often it is because of something in their life. Perhaps they lack the self-confidence to put themselves in a position where they could become vulnerable. By vulnerable I mean letting someone close to them. Their ex-partner may have come back into the scene. Or they may be still healing from a past relationship.

Ask for his number. It is easy

Ask for his number. It is easy

The important thing is that you remain optimistic and open to possibility. I’d like to extend an invitation to you to ask more often when you meet someone appealing. 100% of the people you don’t ask will not say “Yes.” So ask, and if they say “No,” it doesn’t mean anything about you.

Remember that we will do the asking for you as part of our personal service to you. When we send our request for feedback, just let us know who you would like to see again and we will follow up for you.

If you are clumsy, cheeky, uncertain, crazy, single, gorgeous, unorganised, super tidy, untidy or always late, you are unique and one of a kind. There is no one quite like you.

If you are ever dating someone who makes you feel like you are not good enough, remember that you wouldn’t want to spend time with that sort of person anyway. A life partner should make you feel like you are special just the way you are.

How to gain more confidence in dating

What can you do if you have a confidence problem?
Exercise
The effects of exercise are overwhelming and can’t be understated when you would like to gain confidence in dating. Your body releases a cocktail of endorphins that make you feel good when you work out. You will also have that sense of having accomplished something constructive that has long term benefits.

Learn how to dress and present yourself in the best light
Take some time and effort to assess and improve your wardrobe to gain some confidence in dating. It can have a dramatic effect on your confidence level. The colours you wear or the style of your glasses all affect the way that people view you.

Body language
Be aware of how you are holding your body. People who have movements that are more open and spread out, that take up more space-also feel confident. If you are not feeling confident, studies have shown that even faking high power poses caused people to become more confident. You may be in a situation where you don’t want to be perceived as too arrogant. Amy Cuddy disclosed in her Ted Talk “Your body language shapes who you are” that opening up your body for a few minutes prior to an important meeting or date, even in if it’s in the privacy of a bathroom, can make a big difference to gain confidence in dating.

Brush up on some current topics
Do conversations about politics, current affairs or economics make you feel unintelligent? Read up about it to gain confidence in dating. Then you will know that you can at least make some intelligent and relevant comments about current topics in the news
