There are lots of dating myths that are quite easy to dispel with a simple explanation. If these myths have been holding you back from reaching out to someone new via a Talk121 chat line, then read about why these dating myths are not true so you can get started on a new streak of chatting on the phone and dating.

Myth #1: Being Mysterious is Sexy

We are all led to believe that playing “hard to get” or playing a “game” will help us be more successful in the dating world, but this is really just not true. People who are more honest and open tend to have more success in the dating game. As people get older, they get sick of playing games and just want someone who can articulate what it is they want who isn’t afraid to go for it.

Myth #2: Chemistry Isn’t Real

Remember the time you’re friend told you “If you are trying that hard, you’re doing it wrong,” while you were putting together some cheap furniture that was going well? Well, that can also apply to dating. Chemistry is real, and if something feels forced then it’s just not right. Listen to that voice in your gut and you will find the love or lust that you’re looking for in life.

Myth #3: You Have to “Learn” Dating

Dating is not a skill that you have to learn by going on a bunch of first dates. You’re already good at dating and you might not even know it yet. Just relax and be yourself on a date, and you’ll find out the dating skills you already have. All you have to do is talk about the things you like and remember to make eye contact and ask the other person questions too. Show interest and talk from a genuine place!
