How to build a connection on a date
I say this with the utmost sincerity, please know that you can fall in love and truly be loved in return. You just have to be ready to put yourself out there and be willing to let it happen.
We forget that love is about vulnerability and letting your guard down sufficiently enough to really open up to another person. It’s not a competition. A potential partner is not an opponent that you need to outmaneuver. It’s about exposing your inner self, and that is a little scary. Love is something you need to be ready for and you must be willing to take the risk. Once you do, you’ll find it is more than worth it.
Here’s an idea to help you open up on a date and really connect with the other person. The next time that you’re on a date and it seems to be going well try asking each other a few questions from Mandy Len’s, ‘The Sharing Game’. This 36 question exercise is notorious for creating intimacy between people. As the questions go on, they get more and more personal. If you are on a first date, you might want to start with just the first five and continue moving on through the exercise during future dates.
Here are a few of the sample questions from the game:
If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, who would it be?
Would you like to be famous? If so, in what way?
What is your idea of a perfect day?
And so the list goes on. This is a great, non-threatening first step at opening up to one another. Not only will this help you get to know your new potential partner a little bit better, but these questions can be used as an ice-breaker.
So Are You Ready to Find Love?
If you’re ready to expand your happiness and have the love that you deserve? Then, stop waiting around for it to magically find you. You need to get out there and make it happen. Unfortunately for us romantics, we don’t live inside of a Walt Disney movie. Little pink and blue birdies don’t tug at the tunics of our soulmates and guide them to our doors. We must take matters into our own hands.
Now that you’re ready to make things happen, you’ll need someone compatible to date. If there’s a certain person that you’ve had your eye on, make your move. Ladies, give guys an opening and let them know you’re interested. If you don’t have your eye on anyone in particular at the moment, sign up! Our matchmakers are always looking for great new people and there is a whole world of expert help that you can gain access to on our site.
As I always say, what’s the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You get a different outcome in your love life by trying something new!
You can find the love that you have always wanted and received the love that you deserve.
