I'd like to follow up to my previous take I wrote a couple of days ago with the only real solution to dealing with dating fails: talking about them with your date.
Unless you want to end things before giving someone a chance to get to know you better (which, in some cases, is the right decision), the only way to get through the awkward dating phase in the beginning is through open communication.
All I wanted was to feel amazing around someone else again. But that takes work, and in my opinion, chemistry isn't intuitive or something you can expect to just come naturally.
You have to work on communicating more openly and honestly with one another to truly feel great and free around one another.
So, that's what I did. I talked about all the points I addressed in my previous take with him [the guy I met]. I know that for some of the people that commented on my previous take, this may seem strange given that I didn't feel like we were that attracted to one another, but relationships are work.
Who am I to judge someone after three meet-ups?
Other people are pretty different and this is how it'll always be. The way we were brought up is quite different usually, and it's important to talk about what you're feeling early on in a relationship in my opinion.
Also, I went on a "date" (again, a meet-up) with another guy. Here's that story - it helped me to some extent to figure out what I'm looking for.
What would you say is the best way to prevent dating fails from happening/from repeating themselves?
