h2>Dating : How To Boost Your Self-Esteem During The First Month Of Dating

‘’In youth, it was a way I had,

To do my best to please.

And change, with every passing lad

To suit his theories.

But now I know the things I know

And do the things I do,

And if you do not like me so,

To hell, my love, with you.’’ ~ Dorothy Parker

Self-esteem is the opinion you have of yourself. If you have low self-esteem, it can affect your insight about yourself and also your romantic relationship. You may not feel worthy of love or have abandonment issues. Low self-esteem is directly proportionate to low relationship satisfaction and low trust. However, by challenging your mindset, and by adjusting the communication with your partner, self-esteem can be boosted during the honeymoon period of dating your perfect match. Because it is worth it. What is not worth is being single because of what low self-esteem entails.

Practice Being Assertive

Low self-esteem may cause difficulty in being expressive in the relationship. You should try to be assertive in your relationship by personally and truthfully communicating your wants, needs, feelings, beliefs, and opinions. This way, you can find your voice, and you can value what you think and feel in the relationship.

Believe The Positive Things Your Partner Says About You

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Your partner might see in you what you are not able to see. He or she might find you good looking, intelligent, warm-hearted, and honest. You should believe what your partner says instead of staying in denial. Take a dip in your partner’s perspective, and you will realize that you possess all the qualities mentioned in the compliments.

Avoid Constantly Seeking Approval

Tell yourself that you do not need anyone’s approval, either from your parents, friends, or partner. Your partner’s approval may feel good, but this feeling is temporary and is needed again. You don’t want to find yourself in a never-ending battle for validation, and often getting upset when you don’t get approval at every turn. You are significant and special, and you don’t need anyone’s approval to be loved or cared about.

“You are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody” ~ Maya Angelou
