Finding someone was something I wanted but was doubtful would ever happen.
Recently, I met a guy on Bumble with very similar interests and values to mine. I had used dating apps before and had gone out on a few dates but they never worked out.
This time around, it’s not awkward or pretentious. I’m being true to who I am and I think he is too. Although we have only been seeing each other for about a month, I really like him and I would really like this to evolve to something more serious.
I am excited for you and wish you all the luck in the world. You learned from your previous dates and you are now seeing success by simply being yourself. That’s a theme that you need to maintain throughout.
Now, I know that you are excited but be sure not to get ahead of yourself. Avoid making assumptions of where things are leading. That is the mistake that so many make when they finally meet someone who seems to be compatible with them from a dating app.
Do not start projecting what you are hoping to happen. You could start steering the relationship in that direction too prematurely if you have this mindset and this could ruin everything.
Relax. Let things play out at a natural pace. This approach gives you the best chance at getting a serious relationship out of this.
