In this video Claire Casey, a dating and relationship coach shares advice on how to recover from mistakes when dating.
It’s only natural that at some point, you or your guy, are going to do something that REALLY screws things up – and you will feel like your whole world has caved in. You may be embarrassed and you may make a real big deal out of it because you just want your man to know that you are sorry. How can you handle things? Read on to find out.
Step away from the scene of the crime
Our natural reaction is to try and deal with things then and there but this can sometimes make things even worse. Just step away from the scene of the crime to begin with and give things a day or so to calm down, but this does not mean that you have to ignore your man as this can make things worse. Follow the next step.
Act as if it never happened… kind of
Rather than make a really big deal of it, just sort of laugh it off, and say ‘Wow, I made a fool of myself there’ and this shows that you can laugh at yourself, which is a really attractive quality for anyone to have. Then, act normally and don't make a fuss. If he is bothered, he will come to you to talk about things, so just carry on as if it never happened.
Write to him if you feel more needs to be done
If you feel that he is not okay with what happened then after a few days, drop him an email or a letter and just tell him why you did what you did but show that you have learned from it and explain that we ALL makes mistakes and mess up and if anything, this happening can be a great test for your relationship as you will be stronger than ever if you come through it. Leave it with him then and give him some time to absorb what you have said and let him be the one to make the next move.
If he does come back to you and can laugh it off with you, then you stand a great chance of things working out as this is really promising. If he does not come back to you, well he was never the guy for you after all, was he?
