5 Misconceptions about Love and Dating

No Relationship is perfect, and it takes a lot of persistence, understanding  and an intent to resolve any differences amicably and positively, to make a relationship work. But, thanks to movies and fairy tales, that we have grown up watching, our idea of Love and Dating is marred by a lot of myths and false notions. In your quest for ‘True Love’ and a ‘Long-Lasting Relationship’, disposing of the following myths or misconceptions is of paramount importance:

5 Misconceptions about Love and Dating

1: Being Single is a Taboo
2: You have to be Attractive to Date
3: I Can Transform my Partner
4: Friends cannot be Dates
5: Disagreements spell the end of a Relationship

1: Being Single is a Taboo

Not at all!! Being single can be as fulfilling and as gratifying as being in a relationship. ‘Loneliness’ is not synonymous with ‘Aloneness’. Both Online Dating and IRL dating demand time and emotional investment, so it’s only sensible to not take the plunge unless you feel you are ready for it. Take this ‘being single’ time as an opportunity to meet different people and indulge in activities you enjoy – join a book club, take an art class, go for hiking, be creative. You never know, you might just bump into that ‘special someone’ along the way!

2: You have to be Attractive to Date

There is much more to true love and relationship than physical attractiveness. Train your brain to look beyond superficial attributes as relationships based on the sheer beauty and physical attraction are doomed to vanish into thin air over the time. True relationships are built on other significant attributes like – values, passions, beliefs, temperament, etc. At the same time, physical fitness of a person ensures his/her commitment to taking care of his/her health which is a good indication. So, it is imperative to use a good sense of judgement in gauging a person’s worth whether dating online or in person.

3: I Can Transform my Partner

No, you cannot always change a person to fit your own sweet will and fancy. Even if a person seems willing to change to please you at present, he/she might end up being rubbed the wrong way in times to come. Certain traits pertaining to a person’s health, hygiene and social behaviour can be transformed over a period of time for the betterment of their own health and prosperity. But, understand that it is highly difficult to modify traits pertaining to an individual’s personality and physicality.

4: Friends cannot be Dates

Emotions do evolve over a period of time. Being unduly protective of your friend, acting skittish in the middle of a normal conversation, thinking constantly about your friend, getting melancholic with your friend’s significant other, are some of the telltale signs that you are in love with your friend. And there is nothing wrong with it! As a matter of fact, it is easier for friends to turn lovers, friendship being a precursor to a long-lasting relationship.

5: Disagreements spell the end of a Relationship

Conflicts and disagreements are a part of life and do not necessarily have to be calamitous. Be open and free in expressing your discontent without humiliating and degrading the other. Make sure your discussion steers you towards the best solution for both of you. If handled with prowess, conflicts can be healthy and productive and can help you evolve beautifully in a relationship.

Now that we have dispelled your dating myths, it’s time to throw away your inhibitions to the wind and venture into the whole new world of dating with a new perspective and without being intimidated by the above mentioned misconceptions.

All the Very Best !!
