'Hardballing' Is Ruling The Dating Billboards & We Are Not Complaining!
2021 has a few more dating trends for us and this one, is one that I believe we all should be following. ‘Hardballing’ means that you are confident enough to voice what you want from a relationship (commitment, a partner) and not settling for less than what you deserve.
Say goodbye to wondering where you stand with someone or the ‘ghosters’ of the world, as this new trend promotes empowerment and standing your ground!
Dear Bae, Communication Is Key!
A lot of the time, when we are getting to know someone new, we are afraid to ‘push the talk’ of where the relationship is going. We get comfortable in the ‘let's go with the flow’ approach. However, while doing this, many people are left in a state of anxiousness and uncertainty. This is because they know what they want but are afraid that if they voice it, it will scare the other person off. This trend ensures that we don’t have to go through this anymore.
Prioritise Your Time
If you know what you want, you should fight the fear of how you will come off. Why waste three months of your life getting to know someone, only to find out that you were never on the same page? Have that talk in the ‘getting to know each other' stage, and don’t waste your time investing in bonds that can’t grow in the first place. ‘
Identify What You Want
Hardball players do not have time for minor flirtations or banter, that isn't really going anywhere. If you are looking for something long-term, then this trend is the one you need to follow!
Make A Vow To Yourself: I Won’t Settle For Less
As dating keeps evolving, our approach needs to as well. Sticking up for what you truly desire and not settling for less will keep the ball always in your court.
And that power is something you shouldn’t be giving away in the first place!
Now that you are a bit prepped about this new dating trend, are you up for it?
