A Man is not Responsible for your Happiness - Dating Yourself Intro

Sometimes as women we have a bad habit of immersing ourselves so much into a relationship that we start to lose ourselves. We stop focusing on our own personal goals, social activities and outside interests. In addition to the impact this may have on us, there is also the relationship to consider. If you are losing sight of everything for a guy it will slowly impact the relationship as well. After all, he fell for the strong independent woman with a lot going on for her. Changing into a clingy woman who simply seems unable to function without him will only cause a shift into his thoughts of who you are.

In order to help avoid this and ensure to maintain some balance in your personal time for yourself, make a commitment to do something weekly that will help you focus on who you are and what you want to accomplish. To help you in this endeavor, an ongoing series for dating your self is being launched. After all, why do you date? You want to get to know someone, learn more and more about them and see where things can go.

So whether you are in a relationship or not, why not also take some time to date yourself? In other words, get to know more about who you are and what you stand for. As you learn more, you can decide what you like and what you may want to change. Then take the necessary steps. In order to help you on this journey, step by step guides, challenges and insights will be listed here to guide you along the way. Since I have never been a major fan of writers sitting back and telling me to do something, this will be a mutual exercise. Simply put, if I suggest something, I will do it as well. Only difference is, I will post my experience openly for everyone to see. You don’t have to share your experience unless you want to, but by all means, do something to focus on you and how to maintain a well rounded life, the man in your life will appreciate you more if your happiness is not solely focused on him and him alone. If there is not a man in your life currently, this will help prepare you on the steps to make your self happy instead of counting on someone else to do it.
