I’ve been on a number of dates where it felt more like a chore than fun. In some cases I would actually go out on another date with the same guy, thinking that it would be different somehow, but it wasn’t.
In order to have a successful relationship, you must start by dating someone who you vibe with… someone who you get along with… someone who you laugh and crack jokes with… someone who really likes you and who you really like.
How many times have you gone out on a date with a guy and didn’t feel a strong connection, but since he was good-looking and halfway acceptable you kept dating him to pass time?
I am of the strong belief that you can tell if you have a connection with someone the first time that you meet them. There are energies that travel between people to inform them if this is a person who you will get along with in the long run.
I think it’s best to leave yourself open to meeting and dating a special someone rather than wasting time with someone that you don’t really feel that connection with. Follow your intuition.
