Mindfulness in Relationships
Mindful dating is important because if eHarmony is right, it's going to lead to more mindful partnerships. Chief of advice at eHarmony Jeannie Assimos told us ahead of 2019, "Couples will be more open to couples therapy and talking about their feelings than in years past, especially as millennials continue to date and Gen Zers enter the dating scene." Why is that? Perhaps it's that they're approaching dating with more mindfulness and taking their time selecting a partner. Assimos confirmed, "More people will meet their love interests online than any other way (an increasing trend year after year), and in general, couples will wait longer — some six or seven years of dating — before getting married."
So let's remind ourselves to be mindful, kind, adventurous, selective, self-aware, and most of all loving.
