Dating Advice From A Guy Who Has Never Dated

Ask Chandara No.4

By Chandara Tep, Reporter

This week someone has anonymously asked me for some dating advice. I, myself have never dated or have been in a relationship. However, I can bring you the small amount of dating knowledge I’ve acquired throughout my life. First of all, I’d like to say I don’t believe in “the one”. When people tell me they’ve met “the one”, I choose to believe they’ve just met someone with the traits they desired who’ve coincidentally also was looking for a deep relationship. Next off, I’d like to mention when dating don’t be afraid of rejection or not finding the “right” person straight away. That’s the purpose of dating, cycling through potential partners until you find the person for you. When dating, you also need to look for red flags. An obvious red flag to look out for is if they are the the type of of person who doesn’t acknowledge their mistakes. Another bad sign is if they are the type of person who does acknowledge the problem, but change their behavior temporarily not permanently . In some people these traits are not easy to see, and you should always be careful. When you do find someone suitable, there’s something you need to be careful of that we all do. Don’t fall in love with the ideal version of them, fall in love with them. When you put them on a higher level, you put them in an uncomfortable position where they have to fill up your expectations. I believe that putting pressure on your partner is a path that can lead to a failing relationship. When you put yourself out there, always remember that things may not always work out the way you want them to and that is perfectly fine.
