Are You Struggling In The Dating Scene?
Do you feel anxious and fearful when you think about asking someone out on a date? Are you uncertain of how you should make initial contact with a love interest, either online or in person? Perhaps when you are on dates or talking to someone you like, you feel socially awkward, nervous and not like yourself. It’s possible that every time you start dating someone, the relationship ends abruptly and you do not know why. Have you recently started dating after divorce or the end of a long-term relationship, and now you do not know if you are ready to foster a new meaningful connection? Does the vast online dating world seem scary and complicated, or are you simply overwhelmed by all of the time and effort it requires? Do you wish you could learn how to confidently navigate dating and build a lasting relationship with a compatible partner?
Dating can add an incredible amount of stress to your daily life, and may even feel like a part-time job. Your mind may often race, rehearsing how you will ask a particular person out on a date and doubting that he or she will say yes or even respond kindly. If you manage to secure a date, you may worry about what you will wear or that you will not have anything interesting to talk about. It’s possible that you feel unfocused at work because you are using dating sites and apps to communicate with potential dates. Each time one of your relationships or dating attempts fails, you may feel hopeless and immobilized. When you spend time with friends and family, you may witness how happy others are in their relationships and wonder why you have not gotten to that level with someone yet. And at the end of the day, you may worry that you will never find a person who loves you for who you are.
No matter how you have struggled with dating in the past, there is hope for you to find a compassionate partner and build a lasting relationship with the help of a professional dating coach.
Dating Presents Many Common Challenges
Most people experience some level of social anxiety. When an individual is faced with the uncertainty of dating a new person, he o
r she will often experience an especially heavy burden of worry and overthink what to say during a date or how to take the relationship to the next level. The pressures of dating may be even more intense for those who have str
uggled to maintain relationships in the past, as well as those who wrestle with a lot of self-doubt. For many people, starting and fostering meaningful relationships may seem impossible.
In addition to experiencing the common fears of opening up to a new person, individuals can find the prominent online dating world deeply discouraging. Even though dating apps and websites have the ability to easily connect people from all over the world, these tools often lack the intimacy of face-to-face conversations and real-world dates. Individuals may start to overuse these apps and websites, causing them to feel even more disconnected and lonely.
Confidently Date And Find An Ideal Match With The Help Of A Dating Coach
During supportive dating coaching sessions, we will work together to assess your dating history, and help you initiate and maintain more fulfilling relationships. My dating guidance will be tailored to your specific past experiences, present concerns and future goals.
Relationship coaching offers you the chance to reflect on your previous relationships and social history, ultimately allowing you to understand why you have been struggling in your current dating efforts. For example, if you were exposed to unhealthy relationships when you were a child, you may be repeating these same patterns in your own partnerships. We will then examine how your past experiences are impacting your current dating behaviors and take the necessary steps to modify the way you perceive and communicate in romantic relationships. For example, if you often run away from intimacy or, alternately, become overly attached early on in a relationship, we can identify ways for you to create greater balance and maintain a healthy connection in your attachments.
We may also work together to reduce your social anxiety so you can feel more confident and true to yourself when you are asking someone out or going on a date. We will break down your thought process and understand how negativity may be arising in your mind. I will then teach you ways you can alter these negative thoughts so you can feel calmer and more authentic while dating.
You may also benefit from practicing mindfulness. During coaching sessions, I can teach you how to slow down your racing thoughts about the past and future, and focus instead on the present moment. This can help you gain a more thoughtful awareness of how you are communicating and behaving as you are dating.
Since 2006, I have provided advocacy and support to individuals who are struggling to date and maintain rewarding relationships. Even though finding love may seem impossible, there are so many people who share your frustration and hope for connection. With the help of a dating consultant, you can take the steps to gain a deeper understanding of how you can impact the way you date and finally feel confident as you build a bond with someone who is right for you.
You may be interested in working with a dating coach, but you still have questions and concerns…
What if I just haven’t met the right person? Do I really need dating coaching?
It’s possible that you haven’t met the right person yet. However, with personalized relationship tips, you can start looking for romantic interests in the right places and make your initial connection on a positive note. You do not need to go through the dating process alone. With a dating coach, you can optimize your chances of finding someone who is compatible and work toward maintaining a fulfilling connection with him or her.
Will working with a relationship coach pay off?
Investing in yourself can be incredibly rewarding in almost every area of your life. Our sessions can help you not only improve your dating experiences and build better relationships, but you can also learn so much more about yourself. Reflecting on your past experiences and taking the time to change how you interact with others can help you grow your connection with loved ones, friends and coworkers — boosting your overall well-being.
If you have a busy schedule, I also offer phone coaching sessions so we can conveniently work together without the added stress of commuting to and from sessions.
I’m worried about what others will think of me if I attend sessions.
Our sessions are completely confidential, so you do not need to tell anyone about coaching if you do not want to. That said, almost everybody has been immersed in the dating world at some point in their lives. And, most people know how difficult and unsatisfying it can be. By getting individualized dating advice from an experienced professional, you are taking a courageous first step toward understanding what is blocking you from a lasting relationship and learning new ways to create intimate and meaningful interactions with your ideal partner.
