Cultivating a romantic relationship with your ideal woman takes more than asking for phone numbers, sending messages online, and planning dates. You must be emotionally available for love, open to the experience of dating, and present during each date.
Dating naturally triggers anxieties and insecurities in both men and women. It is all too easy to get wrapped up in your own anxious thoughts or concerns about the past, present and future, but this actually blocks love.
The best strategy to connect with your date is to be in the moment while you are with her. Here are two tips to support you in mindful, empowered dating:
Ask her questions and truly listen opposed to prejudging what she will say. Get to know her values, beliefs, goals and dreams by gently taking a deep breath and bringing your mind back to the moment when it wanders.
Bring your most confident self on each date and believe that you deserve love.
It is common to experience dating jitters, but focus on embracing your inner confidence and resisting the urge to believe self-critical thoughts. Remember that you attract a great partner through your own self-worth and availability.
