Here are five tips for having a feral girl summer provided by Love Coach Persia Lawson:
Date how you want
Forget all the traditional dating rules, Feral Dating is about deciding what works for YOU. This is not about casting aside all boundaries around dating, but instead deciding what you actually want for your love life.
Forget the timeline
Lots of people have had to deal with the social and familial pressure to be in a relationship for too long, and it’s high time we did away with this pressure. Feral Dating means you get to drown out any external noise around hitting romantic milestones.
Forget about putting your best foot forwards on dates – just be who you really are from the first point of contact. Imperfect authenticity is so much more attractive than a perfect façade.
Encourage your date to be themselves
By showing up as you really are in romance, you automatically give your date permission to be who they really are, too. However, you can encourage them further by asking Feral-style questions on dates, such as “What’s your worst habit?”
Listen to your gut
Forget about whether the person you’re dating looks good on paper, and instead trust your own instincts about this person. Feral Dating is all about dating in a way that feels good to YOU, not in a way that looks good to others.
