Which of These Four Dating Myths Are Stopping You Finding …


However much you want to find love, if you believe some of the most common dating myths then these could be holding you back. Here are the four dating myths which could be preventing you from finding love.

Myth 1) If you don’t fall for each other on the first date, it’s not going to work out

A first date can be enlightening and of course can reveal certain ‘deal breakers’. If you want totally different things out of life or are utterly repulsed by one or more things about your dating partner, it could well be better not to meet up with them for a second time.

However, if you simply aren’t sure or are not strongly attracted to the person you are dating straight away, this is the type of thing which can build over time. It could be a good idea to meet again and see if attraction builds over time. The strongest bonds of all often build up gradually.

Myth 2) Ignore everyone else’s opinions about your date, what you think about them is all that matters.

Sometimes a personality clash can lead to your date not getting along with one of your friends or relatives. However, when a number of people close to you tell you there is something wrong with the person you are dating, it is time to listen to their concerns.

It can be hard to be objective when you are dating someone as attraction or pride can override straightforward logic, so it is sometimes very valuable to listen to your friends and family.

Myth 3) Love is all that matters

It is a myth populated by romcoms and Disney that as long as two people are in love they can overcome any problems that arise between them. If two people are looking for completely different things out of life, there will be issues and the relationship may not be fulfilling, despite a strong bond.

Many people go as far as marriage without talking through even the most basic issues of being together, such as whether or not to have children. Others are aware of differences but think they won’t matter. This is usually a mistake – it’s important to work out discrepancies before committing as these are bound to come up again and again until they are resolved.

Myth 4) The longer a person has been dating, the more of an expert they are

If a person has been dating for years and years, they will be experienced at dating, but not necessarily an expert at getting what they want. If the purpose has been to find love than a long dating history only shows that there is something getting in the way of them finding a long-term relationship.

For some people, dating for a long time can leave them with a narrower and narrower view of what they are looking for in a partner. With more and more criteria the dating process can stretch on forever as they may end up searching for something which doesn’t really exist – the truth is that nobody is perfect.

Others may be making the same dating mistakes over and over again through habit. If you have been dating for years without finding ‘someone special’, it’s a good idea to take a look at whether that is because of your approach to dating, rather than the being that your dating partners haven’t been up to scratch.
