The worldwide pandemic created a number of new dating trends people use to adapt to the new social environment they live in. One of those, slow dating, seems to be here to stay.
Slow dating isn’t really a new concept, but rather one we forgot about. But, according to experts, if you choose slow dating as your tactic for finding love, you will actually be doing yourself a favor.
Slow dating means you’ll get an actual chance to get to know someone and form a meaningful, lasting connection before you decide whether you’re in for something more. It’s a great way of dating for shy people because it takes off the pressure of getting serious or physical.
It’s all about going out on dates and spending quality time with someone. You get to know them, their interests, and how they react in different social settings. Not to mention it promotes your self-esteem as it takes away a sense of hopelessness and having to be liked by someone.
Perhaps the most important thing is that slow dating will almost certainly save you from heartbreak. We often fail to see the flaws of partners we’re attracted to, but by spending more time with them, the effect wears off, and we see them for who they are.
Slow dating at first seems like an old-fashioned approach to dating. However, it may be just what we need to build stable relationships as we live through shifting times.
