Confidence and dating are two things which go well together. Some people just seem to have it. Confidence is something which many people, including myself, struggle with when it comes to dating. If you are anything like me, you will worry over whether you are saying the right things.
Worrying about minimalistic issues isn’t the best thing to do. Take care of you first, wear something you feel confident and comfortable in. This would definitely be my first tip.
As you are taking care of you and putting yourself first, I always put on my favourite perfume as it helps me to feel confident. Another good piece of advice is to smile and make eye contact. It’s such a simple thing to remember and it can be a powerful tool.
Thinking about areas of mutual interest can also be a useful tip. Prepare in your head a few talking points before the actual date. This will help to avoid any awkward silences.
No matter what age, body shape, etc you are, you shouldn’t give up hope on dating. Due to technology, the way dating works has changed. Some websites will have a location based theme, such as Glasgow dating or Portsmouth dating.
There are plenty of websites for mature women focusing on local areas, such as over 50s dating Guernsey, over 50s dating Kent and over 50s dating Cumbria. Another option is a more generic website aimed at over 50s dating as a general theme. There are also dating websites aimed specifically at young professionals, or individuals of particular body sizes where this is the main focus.
If you want to date people, but with no specific commitments, there are plenty of UK based adult dating websites. There is nothing wrong with this in my opinion, as long as nobody gets hurt.
I have a favourite quote from Sex and the City which is very relevant to this subject: “But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”
Know your worth and value. Learning to love yourself is key. Know what you want from dating. You are far more capable than you probably realise at this dating business. I know you are. You’ve got this!
