#13: Fear of Rejection w/ Suzanna Mathews

Dating has always been difficult but this new age of technology has accelerated the pace of feedback.  This can very easily add a lot of anxiety for single people looking for connection with others.  This week I am joined by a very special guest, Suzanna Mathews (aka "The Date Maven"), to talk about dealing with fear of rejection in relationships and how to have a healthy approach to dating relationships.  On this episode we discuss:

  • Listener questions!
  • Identifying and dealing with the physical responses to fear
  • Being present with others
  • Criticism rejection frameworks
  • PTSD created from relationships
  • How relationships can be part of your healing process
  • How to reject someone else with sensitivity
  • The collateral damage of ghosting
  • Engaging those you know in real-life through dating apps
  • Setting healthy expectations for a first date
