Dating Tip #1: You are an expensive gift

You are an expensive gift waiting to be unwrapped. Don’t present yourself on a platter to just anyone, especially those who are in a hurry to tear away your wrapping. Put a high price on your value and raise the bar. If they want you badly enough, they will put in the time and effort to get to know you. If they don’t.. well, who wants a cheap date anyway? Move on to someone who respects quality, not quantity.

Even the roughest diamond will handle a priceless artifact with care, while the most polished person will be careless with what he or she perceives to be worthless. The trick is to be sure of our own worth before we can see it reflected in the eyes of another. All to often we do it the other way around, with disastrous results.

In order to feel better about ourselves, we need the approval of others to reassure ourselves that we are indeed special. Its normal and yes, everyone does it every now and then. For example, its wonderful that your friends support you during a tough time when you’re too low to get through it on your own. Its heartwarming when someone compliments your work and it feels great you turn a few heads with your new hairdo. But what happens when life throws us a curveball or two? 

It is tough when you’ve had a few relationship mishaps, yet everyone you know is madly in love or happily married and you’re still single. Even worse is the stiff competition encountered from those younger, prettier, slimmer or sexier than you, seen hanging around on the arm of every available man. It’s difficult not to get caught up in an addictive chain reaction that leaves you wishing for confirmation that you too, are attractive and lovable with someone hanging on your every word.  So, you try harder, date a bit more or maybe relax your standards just that weeny bit. Or you withdraw and remove yourself from the race.

Dont sell yourself short. You might forget that somehow, someone, somewhere out there, is looking for a more  substantial gift than the cubic zirconia offered by the lithe beauty or sexy siren, that initially blinded him. The same someone who will gently sort through the layers of perfect  packaging, to unearth the priceless gem within.
