This not-so-stellar habit made dating a living hell when I was single. I worried about liking someone new more than enjoying the great feelings that come with a blossoming relationship. Overthinking is rarely a minor annoyance that interferes with your love life; it makes dating unbearable at times. Instead, take more time to get to know the person.
Dating is just one of those things, man. It just is.
When your new romance sends you a text, you read between every single line to look for hidden meanings. You start thinking up all these crazy scenarios that lead to crazy conclusions, and your mind is just the perfect storm of negative outcomes.
And while all of this is going on inside of your dome, the reality is that things are going pretty well, and unfolding exactly as they should in the relationship. And I feel like we tend to forget that in the middle of our over-thinking.
You need to know there is more to her than her anxiety
The worst type of heartbreak is the one knowing that you got in your own head, and screwed up something that was perfectly fine in reality. So I felt compelled to write this for my overthinkers out there.
Hopefully this will help you stay cool, calm, collected, and in tune with reality when your mind wants to get in the way. Keep A Fresh Text Thread Reply, Delete, Repeat : When your love-interest sends you a text, respond to it and make sure it was delivered, then delete the text thread, and do this over and over again.
2. they need to know that you’re confident in the relationship.
Overthinkers tend to read texts to analyze what the other person could have meant. When you delete the text thread consistently, you have nothing to look back on and over-analyze.
Out of sight, out of mind…kinda. On your end, you can only control your own actions.
Once you start trying to control the other person, we all know how that ends up. This is just another way that over-thinking ends up being like shooting yourself in the foot.
But my over-thinking peeps need me, so I gotchu! I am now giving you permission to think, you over-thinker! Think about what giving anyone else details about your date or text session opens the door to: More opinions, more advice, and more stuff to help you over-analyze and over-think things.
The more noise you get in your head, the more ammo you give yourself to over-think. It makes you feel like you need to analyze and calculate every move you make in order for this person to like you. So this last tip might possibly the hardest one to follow, but it might possibly be the game-changer to overcome your over-thinking ways.
Take care of yourself first.
