Stop Trying to Date Only Your “type”

Everyone has a preference when it comes to dating, but only dating people of your “type” can ultimately sabotage your romantic life. Dating outside of your comfort zone can help you make better choices in the future.

Meeting people with the same general qualities over and over again can be comfortable, but you will likely continue to face the same problems. In this video from YouTube channel TechInsider , dating expert Andrea Syrtash, author of He’s Just Not Your Type (And It’s A Good Thing): How to Find Love Where You Least Expect It , invites you to find out your type and deliberately try dating someone who doesn’t agree with this. If you are unsure of your “type”, Syrtash recommends the following simple exercise:

Think if your dating life was a movie, what would it be called? How would it start and end? What character do you always play? You will start to find multiple topics and this will determine your type …

Once you know your “type”, deliberately look for someone who doesn’t fit that pattern. If you tend to choose extroverts, try dating an introvert. If you are usually inclined towards artistry and love of freedom, try meeting a logical and conservative person. This change will not only give you the opportunity to learn more about your preferences in relationships, but you will also find that your usual “type” does not allow you to be the version of yourself that you want to be. You may never want to date your “type” again.
