So i’m supposed to be going on a date soon with this guy I’ve know for quite a while, we sort of drifted apart but lately he’s started texting me more and then asked me out on a date and I agreed to it. See but with a few things going on at the moment and me having problems at the moment with feeling low and being a complete insecure mess, it’s really putting me off the idea of dating someone and I just don’t know whether there’s a way to deal with it, or do I just tell him the truth?
On one hand going out may pick you up. Putting life on hold until you feel its better timing can delay the onset of better timing. On the other, it may not be fair to he or yourself to start on a bias note. there is no wrong answer here.
By dating do you mean literally just dating, or do you mean dating that leads into a relationship? To be honest, if you're feeling a bit low then maybe the date could be an awesome pick-me-up. It helps to be around people when you're feeling a bit blue otherwise you can come dangerously close to being a tortoise. When I'm feeling unsure about decisions to make, I flip a coin 3 times and best out of 3. Heads - you do it. Tails - You don't. You'll either be happy with the outcome or you won't. I know it helps me feel clear on what my feelings are towards a particular choice, so it might help you too!
Heads - You go on the date and could possibly have an awesome time
Tails - You don't go on the date, but instead you get to sit in and watch Netflix/read a lovely book/whatever other hobby you like doing. But whichever it lands on, it should determine how you feel about it. Good luck!
