In order to date you need to be able to flirt or in some way able to attract the attention of another single person.Not too much, and not too little, but just the right amount to generate interest.Where the more initiating person tries to reach the person who draws back, that person may feel like he’s failing and not being or doing enough, which leads him to withdraw even more. That is a more straightforward question to answer in couples therapy than it is with singles.In couples therapy you explain the dynamics and invite the withdrawing person to reengage, and open up. What I do in counselling is encourage women who are being accused of being ‘too critical’, or ‘too eager’, to soften, to ease down, to open up and be vulnerable without wanting to pursue the relationship right away or know where things are going from the start. How do you reach out to the other gender without being too eager or appearing more interested than you feel, therefore perhaps creating false expectations?Aukelien van Abbema has a degree in Psychology and in Philosophy and owns a privately held practice as a licensed counsellor in Emotionally Focussed Therapy (EFT) for both couples and singles.She has developed a Dating course which she has recorded in a book called ‘Dare to Date’ published in 2017 at SPCK, with a foreword written by Nicky and Sila Lee.The guys aren’t always going to drop what they’re doing and sweep you off your feet; it’s a shame, we know, but this doesn’t mean you have to put all your energy into desperately searching for “the one.” We talked to college girls and guys who shared their experiences about girls who didn’t get the “be a little mysterious” message.
Because that’s where things get really real, and you need to learn how to dance together…You automatically think that means he wants to date you so you text him over and over again trying to hang out.And when that doesn’t work, you move on to the next one—someone, anyone to be your boyfriend.
