Liking a guy too much before dating him is a common occurrence in the world of online dating.
You are not yet conversing with the guy in real life, so you are able to make all kinds of assumptions about him.
So much of this is based off of the conversations that you are having with him.
If you are really enjoying the conversations that you are having with the guy on the online dating site, your mind will begin to make assumptions about him when you are going about your day to day life.
Your mind will want to keep you feeling good.
As a result, you will only create the best romantic scenarios in your mind.
You will make this guy out to be the epitome of what you are looking for in a guy.
In essence, you will create the best possible mate.
This is how you end up beginning to like this guy too much before even dating him or meeting him in real life.
To stop yourself from doing this, you should avoid creating these fantasies about this guy in your mind when you are going about your day to day life or when you are being idle.
The moment that you notice that you are beginning to get caught up in the imaginary scenarios that you are creating in your mind, you should bring yourself back to the present.
This is often done best when you start preoccupying your time by engaging in a task that will take up a good amount of your mental energy.
This way, you can redirect your mind to the task at hand instead of letting it run wild with all the imaginary scenarios that it could be creating about this guy.
You can stop liking a guy too much before dating him by not allowing yourself to get too stuck on any one guy.
If you are spending all of your time talking to this one guy on the online dating site, you may become more and more emotionally dependent on the guy.
You may put literally all of your hopes and dreams of finding love and romance on this one guy.
This isn’t wise.
One of the biggest advantages of online dating is the ability to talk to multiple people that you may be romantically interested in at once.
You don’t need to bite off more than you can chew in terms of how many more guys you should talk to.
However, it is always a good strategy to talk to a handful of guys at the same time when you are online dating.
This way, you are spreading the risk across more guys.
Doing this keeps you from being solely dependent on one interaction working out.
It gives you more of an opportunity to find love and romance because you now have a few more guys who could become the partner that you are seeking.
Being able to distribute your effort among a few other guys of interest really helps in keeping your mind from becoming too emotionally attached to this one guy that you have been talking to on an online dating site.
You can stop liking a guy too much before dating him when you avoid going on the guy’s social media and trying to get to know him that way.
It may be really tempting to want to find this guy on social media, but you can save this for later.
Your focus right now should be on getting to know this guy in one on one interactions online.
If you were to find this guy’s social media, you may instantly start making assumptions of what this guy must be like, based on his online presence or persona.
The truth is that, he could create any online presence or persona that he wants.
In essence, what you see on his social media is what he wants to share.
Most people will typically put their best foot forward when it comes to what they want to share with the world.
This doesn’t mean that you are getting to know the actual person.
You aren’t in this person’s inner circle. You are simply not privy to what this person is like when they aren’t putting on a show.
Hence, by finding and following this guy on social media, you could start really liking what he is sharing before actually getting to know the person he truly is.
By focusing on getting to know him first before allowing yourself to become influenced by what his social media presence or persona may be like, you will stop liking him so much.
Doing this allows you to have a more realistic and cautionary approach to your interaction with him and this tends to keep you from giving in to your emotions too quickly.
Thereby, you are able to stop yourself from liking a guy too much before dating him.
