Everybody Gets One Date
To Sweep You Off Your Feet
By Frank Kermit
One of the mistakes singles make that keep them single is that when it comes to dating, they do not give enough people a chance. Almost every single person that walks into my office complaining that they simply can not find anyone to date, have all refused to give someone that liked them a chance.
This includes people who they chose through a match up, blind date or speed dating (meaning they initially agreed to go out on one date, and then changed their minds). If there was one attitude that separates the happy social single and the lonely solitaire single, it is their attitude about meeting new people and going out on first dates.
It is just one date. It is not a marriage proposal. It is just one date. It is not a lifetime commitment. It is just one date. It is not a promise to go out on numerous multiple dates. It is JUST ONE DATE!
If someone has the guts to make a romantic interest in you known, that person has earned enough of your attention to merit just one date. It does not matter if you are not attracted to that person, or if you do not think there is a future, or if your friends do not like the person. If you are alone, single and want to have a shot of love, then every time someone wants to have a date with you, go.
Just go on one date. At worst, you confirm your suspicions. At best, you might be surprised to find out that you were wrong and that the person that has been available to you was in fact your soul mate.
Many people tend to assume that they would be able to recognize their soul mates when they see or meet them. That is simply not the case. The more time you spend single and alone, the less you are getting to know yourself through creating life experiences. The less you are getting to know yourself through creating life experiences, then the less you will ever know who your soul mate could be. In that way, you would not be able to spot a soul mate, even if that soul mate was right in front of you.
So the next time, you have a chance to go out with someone, take that chance. When someone asks you out, just say YES damn it! The more you date others, the more you will learn about yourself and the more you will learn what kind of a person you are truly seeking.
