Most of the time, when you are on a date, you get butterflies in your stomach. To most of us, this means that we are nervous or anxious because we don’t want to mess up, which could result in the other person losing interest. If there are no butterflies, then, we think, it’s maybe because we are not that interested in the person we are seeing.
What Butterflies In Your Stomach Actually Mean
It’s common for us to say that we get butterflies in our stomach when we are nervous or when we are in a stressful situation. Going on a date can be a good example of this situation. Experts say that these “butterflies” are actually a combination of anxiety and discomfort. You’re stressed and worried, and you get this physical manifestation in your stomach.
How To Overcome These “Butterflies”
The best way to overcome butterflies is to face it. If you are always nervous about going on dates, then go on some more so that you can practice. If you’re going on a first date (which is the most nerve-wracking), make sure that you prepare yourself. Knowing that you have everything covered will lessen your anxiety during the date.
What Does It Mean When You Don’t Experience This Feeling?
Now, on the big question: what if you don’t feel any butterflies in your stomach when you go on dates? Does it mean that you’re not interested in your date enough?
According to experts, it’s good that you don’t feel any butterflies. Since we already talked about this sensation being a physical manifestation of stress or anxiety and discomfort, not experiencing them means that you are comfortable with your date. You might be feeling confident or prepared.
Moving forward, we have to adjust our perspective when it comes to the butterflies in our stomach. It’s better to feel comfortable during a date because it means that there are fewer mistakes that could happen. It doesn’t mean that the spark isn’t there or that you are not interested in your date at all. It just means that you are at ease with the person you are seeing, and this should be seen as something positive. Be thankful if you don’t have those butterflies when you are meeting someone for a date. For more tips, read other posts on the blog.
