Here’s 145 uplifting dating affirmations – plus, how to use them. We’ll also guide you on how to create your own affirmations for dating as they really are a powerful tool. So let’s get stuck in, shall we?
What Are Dating Affirmations?
So first up, before we get into our affirmations for dating, you may be wondering what a dating affirmation actually is.
Well, essentially, affirmations are short, powerful statements or phrases that are repeated, consistently, to help you foster particular beliefs or challenge negative / unhelpful thoughts.
Dating affirmations are therefore statements about or relating to, your dating life – aiming to shift the way you think and feel about it.
Do Dating Affirmations Actually Work?
Now you may think, “just saying something doesn’t make it true!” and this is true.
However, we touched on this when exploring the positive effects of breakup affirmations and so will repeat the same thing here…
Affirmations are still incredibly powerful – and that’s something that’s proved by science.
See, a study published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (1) used MRI to reveal that:
“practising self-affirmation activates the reward centres in your brain.”
And sure, saying, “I love dating” may not automatically actually make you genuinely THINK and FEEL that way. That’s not what makes it true.
But (and this is a big but!) – it will light up the same reward system in your brain, that would be triggered if you DID genuinely enjoy dating.
See, ultimately, affirmations fire up your neural pathways and makes changes to the areas of the brain that make you happy and positive…
And when you’re in that state, you’re able to better do the things you need to do, or shift your mindset around something so that you can properly and fully, give dating your best shot… Without letting past hurt or baggage, hold you back.
(Hence why dating affirmations are such a great tool!)
How To Create Your Own Dating Affirmations
Now, we’re about to run through 145 uplifting dating affirmations for you in just a moment.
But the most powerful ones – are the ones you come up with yourself… As these will resonate the closest and deepest with you.
So, when it comes to how to create your own dating affirmations, you want to:
- Know what you want to achieve – what your relationship vision is, and what you want to work towards.
- Understand your current negative / limiting beliefs that may be holding you back.
- Recognise the OUTLOOK you want to have going into this.
- Know the things you want / need to remind yourself when it comes to dating and meeting someone new.
Then from there, you can pull it all together, coming up with short, snappy, powerful statements that you will repeat.
How To Use Dating Affirmations
Once you have your dating affirmations, when it comes to when or how to use them, it’s really quite simple… It’s also very flexible too. So you might want to:
1) Read your dating affirmations every morning when you wake up.
2) Read your dating affirmations every night before you go to bed.
3) Use your dating affirmations to change your state / mood, as and when you need.
The easiest way to do this is to save them on your “notes” tab on your phone, then get into the habit of reading them when you need a little boost!
Or, better yet, grab our Breakup Affirmation Cards (Digital Download) for printable copies you can pop into your purse, for the clear, visual reminders, as and when you need.
So maybe your first date nerves are setting in and you need a little encouragement.
Or perhaps you’re getting in your head about a guy who’s still on dating apps, and you don’t know what to do or how to act.
By repeating your dating affirmations, it reminds you of the things that are important and calms you down in the moments that you need.
As time goes on, they’ll be better embedded in your mind, more naturally, and come to you more naturally too… Without you having to consciously think about reciting them.
But the more you can embed them in your mind initially, the greater the impact and the easier it all becomes.
