“Will a potential bf/gf think something is wrong with me if I have never dated anyone before?”
“What if I don’t know what I’m doing? Will they be able to tell?”
“Have I missed out on valuable lessons that would help me find a meaningful relationship?”
I have a lot to say about these fears, but I want to start with this:
Feeling like you are behind in dating because of little experience is MORE common than you may even think.
The reality is the average age that people are getting married these days is hovering around 30… and that increases for people in BIG cities.
If you clicked on this then you’re probably the person who has never been in a relationship OR you’re the opposite and just curious as to how someone could have never ever been in a relationship.
When you are not dating or focusing on dating, here are some areas you are building:
One great caveat to keep in mind- all the amazing things you have learned building your life… are GREAT tools you can also utilize in dating.
I want to remind you of something that you MAY NOT think about, this is SO important. I want to walk you through a mindset SWITCH here when it comes to feeling “behind” in dating.
You may think you are the only one with little dating experience, BUT that is a lie. The REALITY is that there are sooooo many people who feel behind in their lives when it comes to dating. Especially Christians I might add.
And guess what? What you think puts you “behind” in terms of dating may ALSO be what puts you “ahead” in other areas- like emotional development, financial situation, career, and more. And those are all great things too!
Also, did you know that MEN tend to be the ones who actually feel more behind in dating?! Because by nature, men tend to feel less pressure biologically and can often focus on things such as health, finances, and careers.
So if you are a woman reading this, KEEP THAT in mind! There are a TON of guys out there who also feel behind in dating.
Chris discusses the Enneagram and how it's a useful tool that we can use in dating to see our own tendencies and desires.
Bianca talks about "acceptable stalking" how to date well without pressure, evaluation in dating and in yourself, how to prep for marriage, and more.
