I would continue to date someone negative or rude or conceited and would just hope that things would just eventually “work themselves out”.
It also helped me better define what I was looking for in my profile. Greater Comfort One great side-effect to dating so actively was that I became more comfortable with dating itself.
Once I relaxed, I felt much better about the impressions I was leaving.
Even when things didn’t work out and my date was not interested in seeing me again, at least I knew we just weren’t a match instead of wondering if I had only done “better” would she have liked me? Improved Odds If you believe that you can get along with out there then dating few people could work for you.
Breaking off communication with someone I had nothing in common with, or at least who was missing qualities I was looking for, became easy.
Honestly, it was often a relief because there were more first dates waiting and I would be able to remove someone from my list of potentials.
