It’s so easy to judge one another and jump to quick conclusions.
This is especially likely to happen on a first date since both of you can be a bit nervous.
Consequently we may start to analyze (with SWOT analysis running through our brains) as if a date is some kind of business venture. While the analytical part can be useful, it isn’t really helpful to begin with – at least not, if you want to date with success.
Getting to know each other takes time. Period!
And whether you are on your best date or your worst date, it is crucial to drop the judgment and simply relax into being present with another person. Although being relaxed could be easier said than done, at least try not to get to too “hang up” about the whole thing.
If a date does not go so well, I encourage you to collect your compassion rather than making quick judgment about your date (or yourself).
Simply remember that everyone is probably doing the best that they can, and if someone misbehaves, there is probably a good reason for that.
Don’t take it personally; it rarely is.
In step no 8 you will learn how to date with success!
