Its Just Lunch Seattle Coaching Topic of the Month
Happy New Year everyone! With the New Year comes plenty of resolutions. Based on conversations I have had with my clients recently, I put together a list of easy dating resolutions that everyone can put into action for the whole year of 2017.
Have more confidence. Confidence is one of the most attractive qualities someone can possess. Many of my clients have spoken to me about how they have felt a lack of confidence in themselves and it has been holding them back when it comes to dating. We are our own worst critics and chances are, people don’t even notice these little insecurities we have about ourselves. Don’t get hung up on trying to impress everyone. Putting your best foot forward on a first date does NOT mean changing who you are. However, if you tell yourself you are confident and emulate the qualities of the confident people you know, you will naturally become more confident over time. Practice makes perfect!
Make dating a priority. We all understand that work is important. However, for some of my clients I have noticed that work has taken over their lives. If dating is a priority for you then it is imperative to have work-life balance. If you can’t take an hour out of your day to go on a date, then you most definitely won’t have time for a relationship! Make a point to make time for dating or even to go out with friends. Commit to going on more second and third dates to give each opportunity the full potential. This will greatly increase your chances of finding that relationship you’re looking for.
Don’t be so serious. Dating is supposed to be fun! A first date shouldn’t feel like a job interview or a work meeting. Clients always tell me it’s a turn-off to sit down and be peppered with endless boring questions by their dates after a long day at work. Joke around, tell fun stories or ask creative questions that aren’t standard date conversation. Talk about music, movies, travel, sports, hobbies or bucket list items. Remember to laugh, smile and even flirt if it feels natural. You can talk about more serious topics on your second or third date!
