A break dating
If you find yourself prejudging and assuming your date is going to be horrible, then your date is going to be horrible because that's the energy you're bringing to it.If you're in this place, enjoy a meaningful dating hiatus and work on letting expectations go and being present. Allow yourself to take a step back, feel your emotions, and come back when you're recharged.
This is the the biggest warning sign that you need a dating break.
But, if you find yourself constantly neglecting the things you love and that make you YOU, you're going to end up feeling resentful and burned out.
If you're in this run-down place, take a momentary hiatus from dating and begin to add back in the things that bring you joy and make you feel whole (think nights with friends, solo time for reflection, a yoga class, etc.).
If you’re single and looking for a boyfriend or husband, as many of my clients and friends are, I say you’ve got to be going on all cylinders at all times.
Dating is basically a full time job and you’re not going to get anywhere if you treat it as anything less.
