Do A Little Self-Care Before
In preparation for your date, do some self-care.
Apply a face mask, take a bath, or read a bit of your favorite book.
Do something that either feels indulgent or helps calm your nerves. You don’t want to rush to get ready for the date and walk out the door flustered. Your demeanor before the date will often carry over into the date.
Remind Yourself Of Your Value
The way your date goes does not determine your value. Repeat that until you believe it.
Often, people give too much value to the way their date treats them. But the person you’re seeing is not above you. They aren’t the holy one, determining people’s worth. Remind yourself before the date that you’re freakin’ rad, too, and no person can change that.
