Dating can be a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t have to be! Taking things slow and enjoying the journey of getting to know someone is often more rewarding than rushing into something. Here are some reasons why longer dates are better than shorter ones:
More Time to Get To Know Each Other
Longer dates tend to give you more time to get to know each other and build a stronger connection. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about topics which might not come up in a short period, giving you an insight into their background, values and interests. This helps create a deeper conversation which can lead you towards forming a meaningful relationship!
More Natural Setting
Having more time on your hands gives you the perfect opportunity to relax, share a meal or take part in different activities. *Wink*
This allows to experience things together more naturally rather than feeling rushed or uncomfortable in what could be perceived as a ‘non-traditional date setting’.
Going for longer periods means that there’s less pressure – making it easier for both people involved to let their guard down and enjoy themselves.
Increased Comfort Level
With increased comfort comes increased trust & understanding – allowing your conversations & interactions to flow more organically. You may start off having small talk at first, but this will eventually give way for deeper topics such as aspirations & hobbies as both parties become increasingly comfortable with each other. This type of openness is only possible when both parties feel safe & secure in each other’s presence!
