Have you ever heard of a philosophy called,

Dating Yourself?

Well, I have to say that after Veronica Grant, a HUGE proponent of the theory explained it’s premise to me I was totally sold on the idea.

So, what is “Dating Yourself?”

Well, I think it’s best if I allow Veronica’s words to do the talking,

Dating yourself is kind of what it sounds like. Doing things for yourself that you would either want or expect your significant other to do for you. So, it can be things like buying yourself flowers, writing yourself a love note, taking like a hot bubble bath, taking yourself out for a drink or for a nice dinner but really the deeper essence of it is making yourself feel how you want to feel on your relationship.

What an idea, right?

Well, in today’s episode of “The Ex Boyfriend Recovery Podcast” I talk to Veronica Grant, a dating mindset coach/yoga teacher all about breakups and how to handle them.


Video Of Episode 60 (Dating Yourself During The No Contact Rule)

I have to admit that I enjoyed the interview with Veronica so much that I decided to start incorporating them into the podcast a lot more.

I mean, sometimes all it takes for “relationships” to really click for someone is to have a person come at it from a different angle and I think that’s what these interviews do for you.

I also want to take a moment to thank Veronica Grant for coming on the show.

If you are reading this Veronica (which I am sure at some point you will) thank you so much!

    My ex’s birthday comes on the 28th day of NC. I pla to greet him on the 34th day.

    I already bought him a personalized gift before we stopped dating. Should I give that to him? How?

    Also, he said he realized he is not ready for a relationship. You think NC could still help me?
    Thanks so much

    Hi EBR Team, I broke up with my ex few days ago. Our relationships last 1 year and 3 months when I found out that he cheated on me. I feel alone and empty. he said that he never want to give on me. then I ask him that he needs to choose one me or her new girlfriend. I never lie i was hoping that he choose me. But he didn’t choose between me and his new girl. He said that he never want to hurt me and his new girl. That’s why I made up a decision to set them free. I let him go. I thought I can manage the pain of losing him. But not as easy as I thought I love him so much I trusted him so much. And Now he wants me to be his friends and asking me that we never cut our contacts and closeness is still there. I want to get him back. I regret that I broke up with him. He is in Saudi now and I’m here in the Philippines. please help me . 🙁

    Hi guys.. I’m 3 weeks into the NC rule.. I have my days where really struggle.. but today is a good day! 🙂 I’ve decided he is only one aspect of my life.. And I’m extremely happy with every other part of my life.. I’m where I want to be heading in my career I have amazing friends and family, my fitness is improving and I feel I’m moving forward everywhere except for with him.. Don’t get me wrong.. I would love him back.. I’m just slowly starting to think that it isn’t the end of the word if I don’t get him back though.. I wouldn’t have got to this stage without reading your book thankyou! 🙂

    I lied to my boyfriend about who took me home and I shared a lollipop with a guy. Then his friends told him that I cheated on him. (Which is a lie and I can’t believe his friends would do that) so now I have no way of proving to him that I did not cheat? I need advice..
