It depends. Some people have no confidence and self worth so they end up being clingy self worth soul suckers with their partners. Those people should not date until they're comfortable with themselves. We can never get self worth and confidence from someone else. That has to come from within. To try is futile and it will only mentally and emotionally drain the people we are with until they leave us.
Some people crave that feeling and admire it so much in others that they don't notice themselves falling into that routine. They may like a man or woman with traits they wish they had. That pursuit will be unsuccessful before you even begin because again, that strength is within all of us the whole time. That neediness will only lead to our own undoing.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

This is actually a really good question, something that I sometimes think about. So to answer your question, "yes". But you can be comfortable in your skin but meet a guy and he will have you doing things that may be out of character for you. I feel that a lot of women change who they are to keep a guy around. You can be comfortable in your skin and date a guy where you do not have to change who you are. I find that when dating a lot of men want to change a females outlook on things instead of taking the females personality as is.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
