How to change bad dating habits
Step 2: Ask Your Dates For Feedback
Most recently, I found myself obsessing over someone who, by the most liberal of standards, didn't treat me very well.
If wanting to be with someone makes you thirsty, then every person in a relationship is thirsty.
Nothing too personal or gross really, just more information about my life than the average stranger might need within the first few hours of meeting me.
This often tied in with my insecurities about dating in general.
02. Refusing to Be Needy
Don't be upset or discouraged if you work up the strength to do this and get very little feedback in return.
This person would schedule date after date with me only to cancel at the last minute or pretend to have forgotten all about our plans.
In an effort to spare his feelings, I lied to this guy—and to myself—for months, fantasizing that our principles and values were the same until I convinced myself it was true.
