intuition in datingYour intuition is probably the best indicator you have as to whether a date is a good or bad fit. Intuition tells you if someone is dangerous or just not a right for you. If you turn up the volume on your intuition from the very first email or phone call, you’ll be able to quickly choose whom to pursue and whom to throw back into the dating pool. How do you learn to trust your intuition when dating?

First, let’s define intuition. According to the Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Online Dictionary, there are many words associated with intuition.

  • Intuition – Knowledge obtained from an ability to understand or know something immediately without needing to think about it, learn it, or discover it by using reason.
  • Gut Feelings – A strong belief about someone or something which cannot completely be explained and is not necessarily decided by reasoning.
  • Instincts – The way people or animals naturally react or behave, without having to think or learn about it.
  • Sixth Sense – A power of perception seemingly independent of the five senses; keen intuition.
  • Premonition – A feeling that something, especially something unpleasant, is going to happen.
  • Hunch – An idea which is based on feeling and for which there is no proof.

Jane Pollak, my good friend and colleague, was my radio guest this week. She spoke about the importance of intuition in nipping relationships in the bud. She shared so many gems on the show, and you’ll have to tune in to the replay to hear them all.

I will share one of my favorite quotes from the show, “The body is the midwife to the mind.” Jane explained how helpful it is to tune into the sensations in your body that signal when something is right or wrong with a date. People feel it in different parts of their bodies. I get a fluttering of the heart and an upset stomach when something is off. How about you?

The more you practice listening to your intuition, the more confident you become in your choices.

Has there been a time in your life when you ignored your intuition and it came back to hurt you in some way? Please share your comments below.
