We're getting closer to a new year!! I have had plenty of time to review and reflect on past relationships and I’m ready to get back out there on the dating scene! Only I just want to date. I’m not looking to fall in love or find my husband. I’m looking for healthy connections with members of the opposite sex. I notice that as women we limit ourselves when it comes to dating.
Nope!! Not anymore if you are single, you have permission to date! Dating should be a fun experience. It’s a chance to meet and get to know different men that interest you. Some you may like just as friends, others you may be totally disgusted by, maybe one or two will really get your attention.
Here’s the thing, dating doesn’t make you a hoe, a slut, loose, or a floozy. It makes you a woman meeting with men to get to know them and to determine if there is a connection and the chance for more.
I haven’t dated in a while, the last time I went out on a date, it just didn't feel right. It seemed rushed and contrived. But, I did learn a lot about how I wanted to approach dating.
Dating and being in a relationship are not the same thing. It’s time to stop confusing dating with being in a relationship. You can date someone exclusively when neither of you are seeing other people, that’s more along the lines of a relationship or “talking”.
Dating doesn’t mean you are having sex with any or all of the people you’re dating. It’s your decision what you do with your body. I don’t judge, but if you want to meet someone on a different level, let sex be the last thing you do.
Not only will it prevent you from finding out who he truly is, you are creating an energetic connection and it may not be a healthy one. If you choose to have sex be safe and be smart.
It’s okay to date multiple people. I'm going to say this again: It is okay. It is acceptable to go on dates with more than 1 person. That is the purpose of dating.
This is something that I noticed is unequal between men and women. Men date more than one woman at a time (even if they are in a relationship). For women, if we do that we are automatically called all kinds of things. I also noticed that women have a limited viewpoint on what dating is.
I was in a group and someone was appalled that a man they went on a date with said he was seeing other women. So many women were saying things like he's a dog or I have to be the only one. I shared my view, no one responded, but I hope that my message helped at least one woman see that dating is just meeting people you may be interested in romantically.
Be open about it and don’t lead anyone on. Some men feel like one date ties you them for life and that’s not the case. Dating gives you the chance to go out and have fun with companionship while getting to know them. It also gives you the chance to refine what you are looking for and practice enforcing boundaries and love lessons. I talk more about this during the Spiritual Love Masterclass, register for the next live masterclass to learn more about Spiritual Love.
Dating is exciting, it’s fun, and it’s okay to date. It is okay for men and women to date more than one person, be honest about it. Have boundaries and expectations. If you are a single mom like me, it’s okay to date. Have fun. Live Life. Attract Love.
