"Dawn Dating": The Romance Strategy For Morning People, Explained
Dawn dating means rescheduling your dates for an earlier time. This can lead to a positive first date that won't leave you overanalyzing in the morning (the way a night out does).
According to neuropsychologist Dr. Sanam Hafeez, many secretly prefer early dates. She told PureWow that they "allow[s] you to have the rest of the day for yourself."
According to Dr. Hafeez, morning dates have fewer expectations when it comes to romance and intimacy, lowering the anxiety that you typically experience before a nighttime date.
Our brains are often in a different headspace in the morning, removing any pressure to drink or stay out too late. It can allow you the time to get to know your date better.
Dawn dating will force you out of your comfort zone and will help you see if your routines and lifestyles align. Try a morning walk, an exercise class, or breakfast with your date.
