3. You sacrifice your comfort for your date’s
After college, I went on a date with a man I met at a yoga studio. He seemed like my type: athletic, charming, friendly, and enthusiastic. But somewhere along our first date, I realized he was much different than I imagined. I knew things wouldn’t progress to a second date.
Yet, when the time came to say goodnight, I let him make out with me on the sidewalk outside of my apartment. I didn’t want to make him feel bad, and boy did that kissing last way too long.
There’s never a good reason to make yourself feel uncomfortable just to make your date comfortable. This includes everything from hand-holding to not speaking up about your opinion. The best relationships are ones you feel comfortable in.
Your comfort matters just as much as your date’s.
