5 Dating Tips From Buddha
Dating isn’t always easy; after all, there are some weirdos out there.
But following the advice of someone you believe is wise can go a long way towards helping you make the right decisions and finding someone you’re legitimately interested in.
And who better than…Buddha?
You can’t deny that he had some seriously great wisdom to extol. ‘
It’s just a matter of applying that wisdom to new situations.
So why not apply it to dating?

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”
The crucial first step to dating is really understanding that you’re complete already.
That may seem strange, but it really makes sense if you think about it.
You should want to date someone, want to fall in love.
But you don’t need them.
Neediness always leads to the wrong decisions, especially with dating.
“To be idle is a short road to death, and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.”
Find the life you want live, and you will attract the right person.
Sitting around waiting for life to happen to you is not exactly attractive.
Besides, how can you even tell what kind of person you want in your life if you don’t know the life you want?
Think about it!
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
Be well-rounded. Be healthy.
Exercise, right eating, and getting enough sleep all contribute to creating an aura of attraction.
That kind of glow is magnetic, and helps to draw people to you that otherwise you might not have met.
Plus, healthy living is good for you. Who doesn’t want to feel better?
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
These days, it seems like everyone is on their phone scrolling through Facebook or Instagram
And while the modern-day communication methods are pretty rad, they don’t exactly belong on dates.
Putting the phone away goes a long way to letting the other person know you’re completely present and ready to engage with them.
It really just boils down to respect; after all, that’s part of the foundation for a solid relationship.
“A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”
Don’t play games.
Everyone seems to do that these days.
Being upfront and direct with people is always the best way to approach dating.
If you’re looking to create a real connection with someone, the fastest way to ruin it is by lying or telling half-truths.
