Dating is like going to a candy store. Each time you try a different piece to see which one you like the best. Some look enticing on the outside until you unwrap and taste it only to discover it wasn’t what you thought. Others may not look so great displayed on the shelf, but once you try it you realize that it is your favorite and you keep going back for more!
“Playing the field” in dating Candyland is actually a healthy way to discover not only who is right for you, but also a great way to get to know yourself in the process. When I coach clients I always explain my theory of dating as having several phases. The first phase is the courting phase where it should be light and fun while getting to know various people.
