And if so, you may have walked away from what could have been a great date because your inner critic got the best of you.While you may think your inner critic is merely pointing out relationship red flags, what it’s really doing is sabotaging your ability to get to know someone new, someone who a great guy if you gave yourself a chance to get to know him.After all, would you want to date someone who hated being single?Do: Become a successful single The key to enjoying your social life as a savvy single is to relish in the possibilities.)The best way to avoid a dating rut is to get “out there” on a regular basis.And by “out there,” I mean target-rich environments, at least once a week.
