Joanne Deck. And then there are the aspects of being single you enjoy and will miss. Just what is the best way to start dating again? Doing your inner work is a mindful practice and a great place to begin. Gaining clarity and setting an intention for what you want will enable you to have a positive transition back into dating. Singles often feel pressure from those close to them to find a partner. Once you begin dating, you will have another party to consider, which may mean relinquishing some feelings of freedom and spontaneity. Be clear that this is a trade-off you see as worthwhile.
Is it to have someone to do things with, or are you ultimately looking for your life partner? What is it about being a couple that you seek? Take the time to identify your needs and desires as doing so will help you make the best decisions. This focus will also enable you avoid missteps, helping to keep your confidence up as you get started. Have your lifestyle, schedule or eating habits changed? Are your goals different this time? Have your values or family relationships shifted? Are you in a new stage of life that will impact a relationship?
Mindfulness is all about self-awareness. You may choose to reserve portions of your week for your family, or you may decide to date only vegans. The greater your clarity, the smoother the process will be for you. Releasing regrets and hurts will enable you to stay in the moment, which is where your new partner will be. This is especially important if your last relationship was painful or ended badly.
Leave your former partners in the past to avoid the common dating mistake of bringing them up in conversation. We have a right to expect certain things, such as being treated with respect, for example. Instead, be conscious of any expectations you may have for yourself, the other person, and the relationship. Are you setting appropriate boundaries, or instead, are you limiting your possibilities?
As you get started, you may feel a rush of emotion. It may be fear or doubt—or you may find connecting exhilarating. If enthusiasm is your experience, are you getting carried away by your emotions and having difficulty being discerning in your decisions? Allowing yourself to ease into the experience and take it slowly will help you get an accurate perception of yourself and the other person. You may find it difficult to meet someone compatible to date.
Hold to your intention. As you progress, take time to reflect on your experience. Journaling about your choices, decisions, feelings, successes, and challenges will be enlightening and help you stay in alignment with your vision. Starting to date again is an exciting change. Take a lesson from nature where change is constantly occurring. Ease into your new dating experience, and it will develop naturally.
