Don’t Get Ahead Of Yourself

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.

  1. Completely agree. Sometimes we are too excited for the potential of “the one” that we become overzealous. We need to just enjoy it for what it is and see what happens.
