As many people reading this can tell you: dating can take its toll on you. Not on your body, but on your soul. It’s very easy to get a nasty case of dating burnout.
One of the hardest things to do in dating is to keep your emotional energy up. It’s a hard truth that dating – even for the most socially skilled of us – involves a fair amount of rejection. Even when you know that it’s not necessarily about you, personally, it’s hard not to let it get to you.
Burnout is insidious, because it feels natural. It feels like the voice of experience telling you that there’s no point. It’s the feeling that you’ve been doing as much as you can and there’s nothing left to do.
Or is there?
If you want to keep dating without losing your soul or not let your heart grow a callus, you have to learn to recognize and deal with dating burnout.
