In this video Matthew Hussey talks about how embarrassing things can sometimes happen on a date and why it’s important to laugh at ourselves.
A personal story from a subscriber
A woman was watching Mr. Hussey’s video on ‘things not to do on a date.’ She absentmindedly shut the laptop and took it with her on the date. During the date the guy wanted to look something up on the internet and when he opened her laptop what popped up was the video on what not to do on a date.
Don’t take yourself or the other person too seriously
This woman was able to laugh at herself, and still relives this story with friends for a laugh. Being able to laugh at the ridiculous things that happen to us is such a good thing. It’s important not to take yourself too seriously any more than you can take your date too seriously.
Laughing at yourself helps you take risks
If you are too afraid to take risks, you are never going to find the relationship you want. When those embarrassing moments happen and you can turn around and laugh at yourself, it makes it easier to take more risks. With risk comes reward and you will someday find the relationship you are looking for.
Embarrassing moments on a date can be awkward and difficult, but it’s important not to let these moments keep us from continuing to take risks and put ourselves out there. By taking these moments and finding the humor in them you can be more confident to go out and take risks. It’s important when you’re dating not to take yourself too seriously and learn to laugh at your embarrassing or ridiculous moments.
