Is Your Dating Life Like Bridget Jones?
By James Preece
The new Bridget Jones film “Bridget Jones’ Baby” will hit our cinemas very soon. Bridget Jones is the archetypal thirty something single girl. It took her a long time to meet the right person which was frustrating for her and amusing for everyone else who read and watches her odd experiences. For many women, dating can be just as awkward in the real world so it’s easy to identify with her. Here are some things you might have in common with her.
You worry about Everything
Bridget Jones struggles with her weight and is constantly unsure about whether her career is going the way she thinks it ought to be. As such, she finds herself smoking and drinking a lot which leaves her little time and confidence to get herself out of the house and dating new men. If this rings alarm bells with you, you don’t need to worry, as we now live in an age where you can meet new people using online dating sites. So you can still sit at home in your oversized knickers, enjoying a bottle of wine and nobody need ever know.
Interfering Friends and Family
There’s nothing worse than seeing all your friends and family getting paired up. To make things worse you find that everyone around you keeps putting pressure on you to find someone special too. So they’ll make sure they take every available opportunity to ask you intimate questions about your love life. Or even worse, they’ll try and pair you up with every single person they meet. Not only is it embarrassing but it’s incredibly irritating too. Do remember that they love you and want you to be happy, as annoying as this might be!
Dealing With Disappointment
Not everything in life goes Bridget’s way and she is left feeling very let down from time to time, especially by men. Does this sound familiar to you? Unfortunately, that’s just a risk you have to take in the game of love. Not everyone will be able to keep their promises to you, but the right person will. That’s why you have to be willing to let your guard down just a little.
Learning to Love Yourself
The wonderful thing about Bridget is that she learns not to care what anyone else thinks about her and once you can learn to adapt this attitude, you will suddenly be able to enjoy your own life, too. You will be much more open to possibilities and will be seen as more charismatic and confident. You’ll accept more invitations and embrace the world and everything it might be able to offer you. If you can learn to value yourself like Bridget does then I promise you’ll be much happier!
Opportunities come all at once
Dating can be a bit like waiting for a bus: You have absolutely no success for ages and then several invitations arrive at the same time. For Bridget, she was torn between dating good guy Mark Darcy and Mr Wrong – Daniel Cleaver. Everyone should have fun dating and try going out on dates with people you might not necessarily think will be your type because that way you will find out more about yourself and work out what you really want.
