Overcoming Dating Insecurities

Having insecure moments is a natural part of life. As we push ourselves to go after our goals, take social and emotional risks, make mistakes and try new things, we are bound to feel insecure at times.

As our healthiest selves, we are able to persevere through our insecurities, embrace our strengths, accept our limitations and keep moving forward even in the toughest of moments.

When meeting someone new, you actively put your best self forward, trying to make a great first impression and secretly hoping your new guy will not notice the qualities you do not like about yourself. Maybe it’s your height, weight, education level, job status or personality traits.
