Do you ever wonder if you have a fear of dating?
Did you know that a fear of dating can sabotage your dating life and any chance you have at finding true love?
Here are a few of the reasons why someone may develop a fear of dating.
- Past heartbreak.
- Low self-esteem.
- Lack of social skills.
- Fear of rejection
These four are not all of the reasons why someone could develop such a fear but they tend to be some of the most common.
Many people who have a fear of dating display it in different ways and this is just how the ego protects itself.
For example, you may see some people who make comments like, “ I’m not dating because I’m ugly” or “I’m not dating because I’m lazy.”
These kinds of statements are essentially fear-based statements and they are how the ego protects itself from any perceived potential harm.
This is nothing but a manifestation of fear. It’s very important to pay attention to the kind of excuses you make regarding dating because many of them will unravel the fears you have about this area of your life.
So what you can to deal with this fear if you think you are suffering from it?
A great start is by acknowledging that you have a fear of dating in the first place. In fact, acknowledging a problem exists is always the first step to effective change.
Once you’ve acknowledged this fear then you can start to take some baby steps that will help you to overcome it and only then will you be able to eventually meet a great partner to share your life with.
Fears are one of the biggest problems us as humans experience that prevent us getting what we really want in life and it applies to dating as well.
If you can rid yourself of any fears you have about dating and meeting new people then you stand a much better chance of finding a great partner to share your life with.
