We all know that setting expectations will have you disappointed and upset. So why do we continue to set ourselves up for failure? I usually never have many expectations until it comes to dating. That is when all hell breaks loose for me.
Met this guy about a week ago and we have exchanged a few text conversations. Nothing too heavy has been discussed, just the regular “how old are you?” and “what do you do for a living” questions. In my head I have already pictured our first date and him attending a family cookout. As soon as I started having those thoughts I said to myself “sllooooooowww doooowwwwn cowboy, you haven’t even talked to this man on the phone yet.” I knew then that I had to step back some and let nature take its course or else I would have already dated the man and broke up with him within the same thought. This is a sure way of ruining something that could potentially be good for you. For me personally I think I just find comfort in the idea of getting to know someone and being courted.
We have to stop trying to create the destiny of a potential relationship because we want it to be to our liking at a certain point. I am not saying to not have standards or know what you want, I am just saying to get to know the situation and see what it has to offer you.
What is meant to be will be.
