I feel like my frustration with the dating process is making me bitter. Should I take a break or just push through and hope I meet someone?
I hear your frustration. Putting yourself out there again and again can be emotionally draining and take a toll.
That said, a positive attitude is crucial in the dating process. Your feelings of frustration and bitterness are likely more transparent to dates than you might realize, and it sounds like a break would be a good idea.
Make that break count by doing self-nurturing activities which feed your soul.
Taking A Break From Dating – 3 Tips To Help:
1. Pursue passions such as music, sports, art or travel.
2. Embrace a daily gratitude practice where you recount the day’s experiences for which you’re most grateful.
3. Spend time with friends and family who are in romantic relationships, and try to steer clear of people with negative views of relationships or the opposite sex.
Savor your break from dating, while at the same time try not to stay out of the dating world for too long. While dating certainly can take us out of our comfort zones and make us feel vulnerable, the rewards of a healthy and happy relationship make it well worth it.
