Start by knowing yourself because that is the most important relationship in life. To improve mindful dating, it would help to first know and understand your emotions and how those emotions translate into thoughts and actions. This should help you potentially change your thoughts and actions in certain situations. When you know yourself better, you can easily understand the other person.

The more you know yourself, the better your understanding of what exactly you want from your partner. This lays the foundation to a healthy relationship.

2. Talk real

Mindful dating is all about encouraging open and honest communication. Avoid making assumptions without understanding the situation. Try not to avoid hard things; rather, face one another directly and see in each other’s eyes while communicating.

When you make efforts to talk real, it is a step to improve your mindful practice and simultaneously build a strong relationship.

3. Shun negativity

But when it comes to mindful dating, you should practice living in the moment and forget all negative vibes or conflicts of the past.
