Dating and self-esteem

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

In the last few weeks, several friends have commented to me that dating is good for their self-esteem. That knowing someone wants to be with them is a great ego boost, and they love that.

While I agree there's definitely some truth to that - I disagree with one part. I don't think anyone can get self-esteem from anyone else. In fact, I think dating is one of the biggest challenges your self-esteem will ever face - outside of gym class. It should be in-check before you even start.

That's the topic of today's Singles Warehouse post - read it here.

  1. Girls who have low self-esteem generally go where society leads them. Unfortunately, the stakes are high if they mess up. “When girls who already have a low sense of self engage in any activity before they’re ready, their Self Esteem for Teens plummets even more,” says Beck. Often, such activity can be self-destructive or even harmful. The problem is that besides ruining their tween/teen years, these behaviors of Self Esteem for Teens tend to follow them into adulthood and affect their lives as a whole, then get passed on to the next generation.
