Dating is awkward
Why cause that other person to lay awake in bed at night thinking about you or wondering if you are interested when you can put their anxiety to rest with a three-minute conversation?
If you were pining for someone who wasn’t interested in you, wouldn’t you rather know so you could move on and focus on someone or something else?
First, however, let’s discuss the reasons why awkward moments are so awkward.
A little bit of anxiety and awkwardness is part and parcel of dating.
If you’re tuned in to your emotional needs and have realistic expectations, you will find a partner soon enough.
Your self image and degree of guilt-proneness are at work, too.
Specifically, if you have a need to always come across as the good guy or gal, you aren’t going to want to disappoint anyone or turn them off.
