People who date with confidence have one trait that stands out above all others: they love. They have a genuine love and compassion for all people. Think about the people you know who are successful at dating; typically they make others feel better about themselves when they are together. The general rule is this: You cannot hurt others and feel good about yourself. Conversely, when you lift others up, you feel better about yourself. When we truly love others, we are most likely to have confidence in ourselves. Love others and you will have more confidence in your dating skills.
