4 Questions That Will Help You Break Your Unhealthy Dating Patterns

The easiest and most efficient way to break the cycle of unhealthy dating is to reflect on things in past relationships that were detrimental to your happiness and not conducive to your growth. Doing this will help you concretely define the negative habits and patterns that have contributed to your dating patterns and break the cycle of unhealthy dating. In order to change your unhealthy dating patterns, you  must set new boundaries and stick to them! Ask yourself:

  1. What expectations did you fail to set when you were dating and/or in relationships?
  2. What do you want from your next relationship emotionally, physically and spiritually?
  3. What needs weren’t met in your last relationship?
  4. What were the red flags in your last dating relationships that you ignored?

The aforementioned questions are a good start to setting new boundaries and changing your old dating habits. Remember, self-reflection is the catalyst to change! #DateWisely
