The Two Biggest Dating Traps

TRAP #1: DATING TO AVOID BEING ALONE

Searching for someone out of scarcity means you are more likely to hold on to a minimal viable partner instead of a partner who is a true match.

Being alone is not the enemy. Staying with the wrong person is.

TRAP #2: DATING FOR EXTERNAL VALIDATION

Seeking external validation is deriving our worth off based on who we date.

If we’re dating to boost our ego, then we want people to like us just for our own vanity.

If it’s not a match, it is not a reflection on anyone’s value.
