Playing the Waiting Game Are you playing the waiting game in your dating life? Do you ever just wonder what are you really waiting for? It can leave us feeling unsettled. Or are you feeling pushed away? Deep down, is it really fear of commitment? Many times we go into relationships and dating with preconceived notions. When we go into relationships with these limiting beliefs, we end up acting out a self-fulfilling prophecy. We can gather lessons and takeaways about our behavior and our contributions to the relationship—but remember: Relationships are a two-way street.
As we work through what happened, we have to own both what we brought into the relationship and the times when we held back. Were we really engaged with the other person? Did we express the things we truly wanted and fully jump in? Were we true to ourselves? Sick of playing the waiting game? Now is your chance to build lasting, healthy relationships. Reach out to our experienced relationship coaches to discover how to bring out your best in every relationship. Dating is a great opportunity to measure and examine our interactions in a variety of situations.
We can also see the times when we had different expectations or desires than the other person. Playing the Waiting Game when Commitment is the Question Sometimes we reach the point in our relationship when things start to get serious. The best relationships allow us to be our true selves.
The best relationships are great because they bring out the best traits and strengths in both parties. Is there more to your apprehension? If you find some genuine incongruences, then they need to be addressed.
Whatever you learn from dating, it can be a great opportunity to explore some of these larger questions about ourselves and how we work with and interact with other people. Listen to this episode here on BlogTalkRadio or here on iTunes. Let us know how your dating is going!
