You browse through one of the dating sites you’ve signed up to, and you found yourself looking at profiles of other online daters. This time, it’s not the ladies you’re checking out but your competition. You read each profile carefully, and you compare it with your profile.
As you read, you think that maybe you’re life isn’t as exciting as others. You think that your life isn’t interesting enough for people to take notice. Does this sound familiar? If yes, you need to STOP right now.
No Room for Second Guessers on Dating Sites
Comparing yourself to others on dating sites and deliberately allowing yourself to feel insecure is a nasty habit. Online dating and insecurity do not mix! Being insecure is a hurdle that you need to jump over if you want to online date successfully. It may take time, but here are a few tips that might help you speed the process up a bit:
Tip #1: Acceptance
No matter where you are in life, you have to accept that there’s always someone who’s going to be better than you. It does not make you less of a person, but you have to accept the fact that there’s room for you to grow and improve. And, that’s not a bad thing at all. Nobody is perfect, not even Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp.
Tip #2: Stop Reading Others’ Profiles
Stop reading your “competitor’s” profiles on dating sites. It’s counterproductive to what you are doing. Online dating is not about competition so why not concentrate on improving yourself and finding beautiful women to connect with? That’s the goal of online dating after all, isn’t it?
Tip #3: It Won’t Matter When You Find the Right One
When you find the right person, it won’t even matter. The right person will make you feel like you are enough. You don’t have to second guess yourself because you’ll feel secure and contented. The right person doesn’t need a blown up online dating profile, nor a rich and famous lifestyle or life story.
It’s okay to feel a little bit left behind sometimes, but don’t let it go to your head. There’s always something unique and special about you, and the right one will spot it no matter how plain you think your life is. Share this post with a person you care for.
