When you're really tired of being single, online dating is fun for approximately a day and a half.
OK, so maybe the high of adopting such a technologically advanced way of finding love sticks around for a little longer than that. That's why if you're looking for someone, online dating is a strategic, smart move, not something to be ashamed of.
This could be when we’re fresh out of a relationship or just a little raw from life. It’s totally OK to take time out from dating if you need a minute to work on yourself.
But, in this time, you should be actively working on the healing.
As a coach, matchmaker, and someone who has gone on over 100 first dates, I personally know what it feels like when you just need a break. So if you're dating and beginning to feel that there's no light at the end of the tunnel, quiet those beliefs. When you're on a mission to find love, it's easy to adhere to that mission, especially when an exciting new prospect enters your dating world.
A little bit of pouncing on your phone when you think they might have messaged you back is totally warranted.
Rebounding, jumping from one relationship to the next, usually produces less than satisfactory results.
