I’m a therapist and I don’t know how to date

(but here’s 4 things I’ve learned so far)

1. Dating can actually be rewarding

It’s all the attachments we paper clip to dating that prevents us from tasting the true nectar of human collisions. Instead we hold up shields, blame, get disappointed, triggered, react, and of course get hurt.

2. Try to take in someone’s essence, their soul

3. How they treat you is everything

4. Trust the universe

I will continue to date.

I will continue to communicate.

I will continue to seek souls.

I will stop being responsible for other people’s feelings because we all know the risk is hurt.

I will start being easier on myself because of what I do.

And I will do my best to be fully present, creating a space to meet souls instead of going on “dates”.

And I will wash my car.
