There are glimpses of a more normal reality starting to surface, but honestly, there is still a long way to go.
But don’t worry!
Quick mindset shift here - you are not waiting to go back to how things were before. You will not return to the previous way of life. It has forever been changed. Your life will start to look different and more “normal” but you won’t return to the same.
Ok, now that we got that out of the way. You are probably starting to think about putting more time into your dating life as you think about going back to normal.
You need to get your hair done, your eyebrows waxed, and then throw in the pedicure!
Not to mention all the half projects you started that you need to finish.
There is no time to figure out how to date during the Coronavirus.
You make the time. If you have the time and energy to get your beauty appointments scheduled, then you also have the time to commit to dating, whether virtual or in person.
You can’t continue to deny that dating will also not go back to the way it was. After weeks and months of protecting ourselves from any stranger you encounter, you will probably start to think twice about meeting up for a blind date. There may be more initial virtual dates - learn to enjoy that!
You worry about finding time yet you have been able to find time to binge Tiger King. Take a break from the binge and put in a proactive time for your dating life.
Here are a few tips on how to make time to date:
1 . Create a Schedule - Like you would any of those pending beauty appointments, you make an appointment with yourself every single day. You allow yourself to have the time to date. If that means reviewing profiles or even having some phone conversations. Then when the time is right, you will also schedule in those coffee or lunch and dinner dates. Be sure to block out time on your calendar or phone to review profiles or go on virtual dates.
2. Set Goals - Create achievable goals for yourself - What is your goal? To learn to communicate with men? To set better boundaries? Having goals will help you to stay on track. Then break your goals down into smaller action items that you can track: i.e. how times a week will you get online and check out profiles and/or how many virtual dates can you commit to going on each month. Remember, this is not another opportunity to beat yourself up! If you don’t meet your goals, get curious and notice what was holding you back. Were you afraid of being rejected? Once you uncover the belief that was keeping you stuck, you’ll be able to move forward.
3. Celebrate Your Successes - Take time to acknowledge each success no matter how small, you sent out messages to 3 different men in one evening, stop and congratulate yourself.
Your love life and finding a partner is a priority but you need to make it one. The same goes for the workout you say you will do or the sugar you will avoid. What you start spending time on is where you will also start to see results.
So, what can you start to do right now to build in more time for yourself and your dating life?
