For 10 years, I suffered from a flying phobia. I travelled only to areas I could reach by car, train, or bus, plagued by the voice in my head that “what if’d” incessantly: What if the plane crashes? What if I have a panic attack on board? What if the people on my flight think I’m nuts? What if I fly there but can’t get back on the plane to come home and have to miss work? What if I die before getting to accomplish my goals in life? And on and on. It was a severely limiting mindset, to the point where I missed out on job opportunities, vacations, weddings, and visits with friends. Eventually, I conquered my fear through a local, flying phobia program (thank you, Dr. Forgione!), and while I still don’t love to fly, I try my best not to let my fears rule my life.

Online dating has its own set of rules! However, if you’re looking to take your online love offline, don’t make these three critical mistakes.
If your profile includes the words “never,” “don’t,” “hate,” or “can’t,” you might be carrying around some dating baggage that could be keeping you from meeting Mr. or Ms. Right. Usually these feelings are subconscious; they have become unintentionally woven into your dating identity. Not noticing this, you simply qualify them as your personality, or part of the long list of preferences you seek in a mate. You mindlessly post these words on your profile hoping the ideal person will be able to navigate around the things that are going to upset you in advance, before you would ever have to think about pulling the plug on the relationship.
