2 min read

In the world of modern dating, ‘hesidating’ has emerged as a common trend. It’s the act of dipping your toes into the dating pool without really committing, often due to life’s uncertainties or personal indecisiveness. If you’ve ever found yourself or your date dodging vulnerability, cancelling plans last minute, or just seeming disinterested, you’re likely encountering ‘hesidating’.

Tackling Hesidating: Two Key Questions to Consider

What Do You Really Want from Dating?

Before you start swiping right or planning dates, take a moment to think about what you’re looking for. Are you in the mood for something casual, or are you aiming for a serious relationship? Your current life phase, emotional state, and personal goals should all play into this decision. Understand that casual relationships are often about fun and spontaneity with less commitment, while serious relationships mean deeper emotional connections and long-term plans. Pay attention to how you interact with potential partners. Do your actions reflect a desire for something light and fun, or do you find yourself seeking deeper, more meaningful connections?

To Date or Not to Date?

If you’re hesitating to even start dating, it’s crucial to figure out why. Are you holding back because of past experiences, a period of self-growth, or other personal reasons? It’s okay to decide that now’s not the time for dating. To get to the heart of your hesitation, ask yourself how past dating experiences have shaped your view of relationships, whether your personal goals align with the emotional demands of dating, and what personal growth you need to focus on before jumping back into the dating scene.

The Bottom Line

Understanding your hesitations about dating is key to making informed decisions in your love life. This might be your cue to focus on self-care and growth, so when you’re ready to date, you’re doing so with a clear mind and open heart. By nurturing your emotional well-being, you’re laying the groundwork for a strong, healthy relationship when the time is right.
