The rate of adults without a romantic partner is at an all-time high of 51%, according to a national survey. Not only are more people single than ever before in history, but the feeling of loneliness is also a growing problem. In fact, 63% of men and 58% of women are lonely, according to Cigna’s 2020 U.S. report.
You may be asking yourself if so many people are single and desire a partner, why is dating so difficult? Dating in today’s society is complex but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve dating success. With the help of a dating coach, you can avoid the pitfalls of dating, and have a fulfilling, long-term relationship.
Psychologist Dr. Philip Glickman and the team at Wellness Road Psychology want to help you find the right partner and have the rewarding relationship you’ve always wanted. We’re dedicated to building a strong, collaborative partnership with you to help you achieve your goals. Here are some of the ways our team can help you improve your dating skills.
#1: Gain valuable insight
The ability to understand yourself better is key to not only finding and choosing the right partner, but it’s also a cornerstone of building and maintaining a fulfilling, long-term relationship. It’s difficult to have an objective perspective from a subjective experience. That’s where the value of a dating coach comes in.
Dating coaches help you understand yourself better and provide valuable insights into who you are at your deepest level. Understanding your individual needs, communication style, attachment style, and hardwired inner workings set the path for dating success.
#2: Help tailoring your approach to dating
If you find yourself stuck in the same dating pattern over and over again, a dating coach can help you identify the root of these patterns and change them so that you move forward and accomplish your relationship goals.
The dating patterns that drive men and women to repeatedly choose the same type of partner are often unconscious. This means they’re inherently outside of your awareness. A dating coach can help you identify these patterns so that you have the power to change them. Unconscious patterns of behavior in dating and relationships are complex and different for each individual. A dating coach can help you identify, understand, and remove these roadblocks to success.
#3: Help managing dating anxiety
Even the most confident person may have some dating-related nervousness, anxiety, or fear. Everything from what to talk about on a first date to how to ask for a second date can make your stomach churn and your palms sweaty.
Whether you have new relationship questions or need insight on compatibility signs to look for, a dating coach can help you manage these anxiety-provoking aspects of dating.
#4: Boost your dating confidence
Lack of confidence can hinder dating success, and yet, many adults could use a confidence boost when it comes to dating. A dating coach can help you identify the core messages and beliefs that cause you to feel less confident in dating.
Once you know the root of your anxiety, working with your dating coach can help you reframe these beliefs so that you’re looking at them from a different perspective. This helps remove limiting beliefs that are holding you back in your dating life and boost your confidence so that you achieve success.
#5: Provide valuable support to reach your dating goals
A dating coach can not only help you view dating through an entirely new lens, your dating coach provides the tools and support to help you find success in dating. A dating coach will evaluate your situation, collaborate with you to create goals, help you remove roadblocks, and create an action plan to bring those goals into fruition so that you have a fulfilling dating life, find the right partner, and have rewarding relationships.
