How is it only Wednesday? Below we have some questions answered from our Sunday Scaries Q and A to get you through. Followed by a cocktail, of course.
Q. How many dates before I can consider us exclusive?
It really depends on what you and your partner agree on-some couples agree to be exclusive instantly, whereas others need to date for a fair while before deciding that they are comfortable and can move forward with exclusivity! As long as you find the right moment, for both of you, to have that conversation, you can then decide what is the right timeline for you.
Q. Is it possible to find love in your 30’s? I’m 29 and freaking out!!
The idea that your age is proportional to the time you find someone you love is preposterous. Love has no boundaries in terms of age, circumstance, or any other specific ‘rule’ that society has dictated. When you’re ready, you will find someone who can add value to your life in all the ways you need them to. You should never continue with the mindset of finding someone to complete you, as though being without a partner makes you somehow less whole- first, you must feel complete and happy alone. Only then, when you are truly at ease with yourself and who you are, will a person be able to come into your life to enrich it.
Q. How do you get over relationship fears like ‘what if he loses interest’?
Insecurities in relationships are incredibly common and okay to feel. We all feel inadequate at times, so it’s only natural for those fears to carry over to our personal relationships; complexes that have been conditioned into us from a youn g age. As we get older, it is our job to combat these insecurities and persevere, stopping the generational cycle of passing off your insecurities to the next generation.
The more you focus on the negative and the ‘what if?’ the more you manifest that into existence. Even if you don’t believe in the power of thoughts and their frequency, when you think about something consistently, you are naturally bound to see it more because that’s all you’re focusing on; even if it’s not there and it’s purely in your head. It is unhealthy and strains the relationship with an unnecessary burden. Instead, try to reframe the narrative to “wow, he must be so happy and in love with me!” If you start changing the words you use in regards to yourself and your relationship, you’ll reshape the narrative you’ve instilled in yourself from the beginning. It is a process, but it is so worth it for a healthy, happy relationship down the line.
