Many people don’t – and won’t – enjoy dating. In theory, dating is this exhilarating experience. We get to meet a lovely person and spend a really nice evening getting to know them. What’s not to like? This, sadly, is not how it feels for many people. Perhaps they find opening up to a new person difficult. Maybe they are not a strong conversationalist? Or, could it be that they feel a whole lot of pressure?
There are so many reasons why many people find dating a challenge and struggle with the process. Be careful before you judge the prospective life-partner by how much you are enjoying the dating. For many people, dating is a “necessary evil” that must be endured to get to a lasting relationship. There is no need to valorize the process, which is only a means to an end.
