Today I was thinking about dating tips and the importance of balance when it comes to loving, losing and even trying (dating). It's tricky. If you ONLY focus on finding love, you come across as too intense. You end up neglecting your social life, job, family and sometimes even health. Not to mention how you struggle to pull yourself back up if it all goes wrong. At the same time, not even "giving it a go" leads to endless missed opportunities, regrets and potent unhappiness.

So what’s the secret?

The first of our dating tips is:

“Keep everything in perspective” is probably the most powerful of all dating tips.

The more balanced your life is, the happier you are with your friends, career, family and even yourself. Do you like who is looking back at you from the mirror?

If the answer is yes, that inner confidence will show on the outside, which is the most attractive thing you own.

Our next dating tip is to:

Live your own life.

If diligently watching out for “the One” is the only thing on your agenda, you will probably not find the type of partner you are looking for. Being needy never seems to attract the person you so desperately crave. So what can you do? Take a step back and realize that they could appear anywhere, and if they are a keeper, they will appreciate the fact that you have a life that doesn’t just revolve around them.

Your search for love will be more fun, productive and rewarding if balance is put front and center. When you’re bored at work, you’re checking your phone for that all-important acknowledgement from your partner. You wait, you stew, you contemplate if they are playing games, and you wonder what they are doing. If this is all you think about, it will end up making you crazy and killing your chances at finding the one.

Another super important tip to keep in mind is:

Do not lose track of your friends.

Often people struggle to remember their friends when they’re wrapped up in dating. These are the people who were there before you had this wondrous man in your life and will be your shoulder to cry on if, sadly, all goes wrong. So get out there and pay them the afternoon they deserve – don’t be glued to your partner (or your phone) 24/7.

One of the most important dating tips we can give you is to:

Be happy with yourself first and foremost.

Being happy with yourself will also make you more open with your partner. Second guessing someone’s motives due to your own insecurities is a sure-fire way to drive yourself crazy or push your new guy away in the early stages of a relationship. Alternatively, it can make you a doormat, accepting standards that are well less than you deserve.

Dating Tips Final Thoughts

Remember not to put all your eggs in one basket when it comes to life and love. Reflect on what’s important to you, and your partner should add to that. Hopefully these dating tips can help you keep that all-important balance in your life and love.

  1. My girl of a 14months requested for a break last month. According to her, she ain’t feeling us anymore.. we tend to be struggling alot.. I want your help to get her back.. please! I do luv her.

    1. Hi Endurance,
      Did she say why she isn’t feeling you anymore? In order to fix the situation, you need to know why she is upset. A lot of times it is because someone feels taken for granted, or not appreciated. Try and set up a meeting and talk it through. I would also suggest sending her short, personalized text messages letting her know why you miss her and what you like about her. For example “Missing your contagious laugh” or “Missing the taste of your lips”.
      Please let me know if I can help…

    1. Hi Lauretta,
      If he is not respecting you, or if he is taking your relationship for granted, then let him know that it is bothering you face to face (never via text). Try and find a neutral time (when you haven’t been drinking and he is calm and relaxed) and let him know how you feel. If you don’t it will just build up and up over time…
      I hope everything works out for you. Please let me know if I can help.
      Sending tons of positive energy your way!
      xo Claudia
