Day 7: Navigating Dating with a Wanting Mindset

Welcome to the final day of our 7-day journey to shift your dating mindset. Today, we’re going to discuss how to approach dating with a ‘wanting’ mindset, a perspective that can make your dating experiences more fulfilling and less stressful.

Understanding the Wanting Mindset

A wanting mindset in dating means viewing a relationship as something you want, not something you need. It involves seeing dating as an opportunity to meet and learn about new people, without attaching your self-worth or happiness to the outcome.

The Power of the Wanting Mindset

This mindset can transform your dating experiences. When you approach dating from a place of want rather than need, you’re less likely to settle for relationships that don’t serve you, and more likely to attract partners who align with your values and respect your boundaries.

Activity: Reflecting on Your Mindset

Reflect on your current mindset towards dating. Are you viewing it as a need or a want? Identify any beliefs or fears that may be leading you towards a needing mindset. Consider how you might shift these perspectives to a wanting mindset.

Embracing a Wanting Mindset

As you embrace a wanting mindset, remember to maintain your positive energy, uphold your boundaries, pursue your passions, and nurture your self-worth. These practices will support you in approaching dating with confidence, patience, and a clear understanding of what you’re looking for.

Activity: Manifesting Your Wanting Mindset

Write down a personal mantra that encapsulates your wanting mindset. This could be something like, “I am complete and happy on my own. I welcome the opportunity to share my life with someone, but I don’t need a relationship to define me or make me happy.”


Continue with the practices we’ve established throughout this course. Uphold your boundaries, engage with your passions, maintain your positive energy, and affirm your self-worth and wanting mindset daily.

Congratulations on completing Day 7 and the entire course! By embracing a wanting mindset, you are well on your way to healthier, more fulfilling dating experiences. Remember, the journey towards personal growth and better relationships is ongoing, so keep learning, exploring, and growing.
