As with many things in life, finding the confidence to start dating is really a matter of “just doing it”. You see, if you allow yourself to worry about the potential rejection or struggling to find someone whom you connect with, all of that negativity is only going to dissuade you from trying at all. Many people spend more and more lonely nights this way. It’s counter productive to worry about what might go wrong! You have to take the reins and just take a chance. Whatever may happen along the way is just part of your particular journey, and that’s okay!
Besides, what’s the worst that will really happen if you have to go on a several dates before you find someone you really like? At the very least, you’ll end up with a new handful of stories to tell! It’s much more interesting to experience as much of life as you can. Surely you must have that one person among your friends or family that always seems to have an interesting anecdote about something they’ve done or someone they spent time with. Entering the dating scene and just seeing what happens can easily leave you with some interesting tidbits of your own to share.
Really, just think about where you are right now in your love life. If you want it to change, you’re only going to be able to make that happen if you jump in with both feet and just give it a shot. Say yes to more people that ask you out, or do the asking yourself! It’s all about taking a chance. Like the popular phrase goes – fortune absolutely favors the bold. Once you eventually do find someone you really connect with, you’ll be glad you finally found the courage to stop worrying about what could go wrong. It really couldn’t be simpler.
