Dating As a Journey

Bookmark and Share

ingles need to acknowledge that dating is the process of selection of potential dates and requires going through various stages. I believe it is crucial to identify and clearly communicate relationship expectations and personal timelines early on in the dating process.
Sometimes uncertainly in the first months of dating someone is an early warning sign of problems ahead. More commonly though potential couples don't know their true feelings because they are holding back.
The answer lies in the fact that during this time, people who were able to reveal more about themselves - to bring their true feelings to the surface - possibly through an argument or disagreement might trigger true characteristics and behaviour. It is also important to have a readiness for a constructive argument or an ability to listen to the other partner's point of view, taking into account their feelings and feedback. Thus each partner could decide as they have been more open with their feelings, that they can then match to each other and be able to create a good relationship. Alternately, they may decide to break off the relationship and move on in different directions.
One of the secrets of successful couples who grow together and become good partners over time is being honest and open with each other, rather than being defensive. This is a recipe for relationship success; telling our partners how they make us feel or what is on our mind that concerns us about a particular situation or behaviour. Therefore during dating to see each other in different environments and settings with other people and friends can be helpful to identify the real character of a person that you date. Dating is learning to be more assertive. It is important to remember you are searching for your good match.
In dating to fulfil a long lasting relationship various factors are important:
1. Feeling ready for new dating experiences. If you are still sad or in a mourning stage after splitting up with your ex partner, you should wait to be reattached, to lift up your spirits and be available for a new adventure.
2. To recognise someone's potential ability to create a good relationship. To maintain a good relationship takes energy, affection, and support. Do potential partners have the time to pursue a relationship? There might be a conflict between what people want and having the ability to make it happen.
3. Revealing your true personality and level of commitment you planned to invest in a relationship.
However, in a dating process there should be no harsh assumptions or rush to conclusions to evaluate compatibility factors; but to understand each other's relationship intentions during an early stage of dating is essential.
There are millions looking for love and dating should be a more proactive process. Remember, singles need to enjoy their dating journey instead of having a fear of uncertainty or settling down too soon with somebody who is unsuitable.
Keep, your heart open and master dating skills to be able to catch the person of your dreams.
Wishing you success and love always!
