” Can you imagine how constantly hearing this question from friends, family, and unsuspecting old ladies makes some singles believe they have a problem? When you date, allow the community of people around to speak into your relationship. Your friends are able to see inconsistencies and problems you can’t because they are outside the storm.
In life and relationships, risk usually equals a reward. This journey of moving towards love involves ‘putting yourself out there’ in the dating world in ways that may seem terrifying at the most and stretching at the least.
These stretching steps which can include but are not limited to jumping into the online dating world actively, attending a speed dating event, allowing yourself to be set up by friends, getting relationship coaching, showing interest in someone, and the list goes on.
I understand it can be challenging and rewarding all while sometimes being just plain downright scary. The risk feels overwhelming sometimes, especially if we aren’t quite seeing the reward we thought we would or as quickly as we hoped. Or we can sow in a field and we reap the harvest in that same field.
Sometimes it feels as though we may be treading in water that is taboo so to speak. We don’t really know and most the time can’t predict.
These are all valid questions many of us grapple with daily on our search for romance.
