As online dating experts we know deciding where to go on a date can be stressful. Especially so when you are in those early stages and still getting to know someone. To mark our launch in Leicester, our cool photographer Rowan asked some local friends to give us the lowdown and share their ideas to suit just about any date.
The 5 skills to master before your next first date
I recently posted on Huffington Post, “The only 5 first date questions you’ll ever need” and that got me to thinking about how else you can prepare yourself so that you rock that next first date. Read on for the 5 skills I reckon you need to master to blow your date away.
1. Learn to avoid taking anything personally
The key to getting through lots of first dates unscathed, and in fact the key to getting through life more or less unscathed, is to avoid taking things too personally. Learn to rely on yourself and know yourself rather than seeking validation from others. When you look to others for validation you’re handing over your personal power to them to decide how to think and feel about you. Sounds awful when you put it like that, doesn’t it? If you head to your date, feeling confident and knowing you’ve got your own back no matter what happens, you’ll be able to handle any dating situation with humour, good grace and jazz hands.
The midweek meltdown
The middle of the week can be hard to get through as the next weekend is still so far away & the last one is fast becoming a distant memory. Well you’re in the right place. I’m starting a new regular blogpost to share all the crazy, useful, inspiring, funny or challenging things I’ve read during the past week. It’ll give you that uplift you need to make it through to the weekend.
