You may be if you are not into socializing or putting yourself out there and taking risks.
You may be too innocent to date when you have stayed with the same group of people and have refused to expand on it.
You may be too innocent to date when you have made little effort to do or try something that you aren’t used to.
You really have to take a good look at your life and your experiences.
A person can typically sense when you haven’t had much life experience or when you are quite closed off.
This is how he may judge you.
He may judge you on those first impressions and unfortunately, first impressions can be difficult to overcome.
If you feel like you have been getting the message that you are too innocent to date, try to recollect the reasons that were given, if any.
If there were reasons given, you may want to start acting towards making a few changes.
You don’t have to change who you are or what you believe.
However, you can still make changes in areas where you truly feel like you are deficient or that you should improve upon.
If you have never gotten any feedback as to why these people felt that you were too innocent to date, just take a look at your own life and your experiences.
How similar does everything seem?
If everything feels so familiar and there doesn’t seem to be any danger, excitement or electricity in your experience, you may be playing it way too safe.
This is not about going out there and risking your life or breaking the law.
However, it is more about taking chances and getting out of your comfort zone.
You may have even had moments in your past when you wanted to do something that sparked your interest.
However, you talked yourself out of it because doing it would have put you outside of your comfort zone.
Well, try to remember those moments and the activities in question.
Now is your chance to actually do them.
If you were thinking about getting up on stage and reciting a poem but backed out of it at the last minute, now is your opportunity to just do it.
If you were thinking about travelling to a location that you have always dreamed about going to but backed out of it when the opportunity arose, now is your chance to start saving up again so that you can go there.
If you were thinking about trying out a new hair color or hairstyle but backed out of it because you weren’t sure about it, now is your time to take a chance and go for it.
If you are nervous about doing any of these things, rest in the knowledge that these activities aren’t permanent.
Reciting that poem that you wrote isn’t a forever sequence.
It will happen, you will get offstage and be done with it.
Travelling to this place that you have always wanted to go to isn’t a forever occurrence.
You will travel there, get the experience and come back home.
Changing your hair color or style isn’t necessarily permanent either.
You can do it, experience it and ultimately go back to the hairstyle you used to have if that is what you want.
The major benefit of these experiences is that they can add more valuable layers to your character, thereby making you appear more seasoned.
This experience alone could be enough to re-energize your life and allow you to feel as though you are someone who isn’t too innocent to get to know and ultimately date.
