In fact, so many dating singles out there worry so much about what their date will think, that they totally forgot the purpose of the date - to find out whether or not they will find the connection they are seeking.
No matter how you fix yourself and what manners or personality you put on, you will never be in control of what your date will think or feel about the date, so set that unnecessary stress aside.
Instead, shift your focus about what you will think about him or her.
Observe everything about them.
Do YOU like their appearance?
Does their personality appeal to YOU?
Do YOU feel that you are making a good connection?
As you can see, it is what you think that is important here, because you are the one looking for the right person, as well as certain qualities.
Leave what they think, up to them!
The fear of being single forever can cloud your good judgment, causing you to continue seeing a person who you know you are not entirely satisfied with.
You will do this because you will try to convince yourself that maybe you have been too picky and being with anybody, even if you are not crazy about him or her, is better than nobody.
Stop lying to yourself!
You do not have to get stuck with someone you are not entirely happy with, nor do you have to be single forever.
Being honest and up front from the beginning is what will get you where you want to be and whom you want to be with.
Do not worry that you may scare off someone by telling him or her exactly what expectations you have and how serious of a relationship you are looking for.
Look at this way, if they get scared that quickly, then it is a sign that they were not looking for the same thing as you are, so it saves you time and you can then move on to dating someone else.
As long as you get real with yourself,
stop making excuses,
know what your really want,
stick to it and
make it clear to the people that you date,
then you will be safe from too many mixed messages, misunderstandings and frustrations.
When you treat your goal of meeting the right person seriously and important, then you will stay motivated to find him or her, and when you do- you will finally be able to begin the kind of relationship that you have always longed for, needed and deserve.
