Worst Dating Mistakes, Part 2
Last week I outlined the first five of 10 of the worst dating mistakes singles make. To review, click here.
Here's a brief summary of last week's list:
6. Giving too much personal information too soon
Once you are in a healthy loving relationship, you will realize that a relationship needs time to develop before it can handle the deeply personal information. The longer the relationship has been around, the stronger it will be and the more it can handle without breaking.
Having said this, do not withhold information that would help the other person decide whether you are a good match or not.
7. Seeing people as you want them to be instead of who they really are
Once you are in a healthy loving relationship, you will realize the people who want to grow and change will be the first to tell you how they are working on growing and changing. They don't need you to be the agent of change. If you try to move someone in a direction they are not interested in going, it will take all of your energy. Even then, you will likely fail because it is your direction, not theirs. It's better to choose people who you can love without changing them.
8. Believing a relationship is all you need to be happy and to have a
Once you are in a healthy loving relationship, you will realize that although love is extremely important, it is not the one thing that will fulfill you, complete you, or satisfy you. The minute you really do create a truly fulfilling life, you will attract love.
9. Making people wrong for who they were from the start
Once you are in a healthy loving relationship, you will realize people tell you who they are, what they want, what they will and will not do, and how your relationship will turn out right from the start. They might not tell you this information verbally, but you will see it in their actions or behaviors. You would do well to listen and believe them.
10. Going too fast into a relationship
Once you are in a healthy loving relationship, you will realize you simply cannot rush the process of relationship building. And if you do rush in, you and your partner will suffer the consequences.
