Men reveal their biggest dating fears and insecurities

When it comes to the dating scene, women are usually typecast as fraught with worry over their relationship status, whereas men are seen as much more relaxed. As it turns out, men can be pretty hard on themselves and are dogged by just as many insecurities meeting someone new.

Today the ‘Men’s Heads and Hearts’ report from eharmony and the charity Relate shines a light on male attitudes to modern dating, love and relationships in 2021. One of its key findings saw that four in 10 men (39%) admit that the #MeToo movement has impacted their approach to dating, with a tenth (10%) even saying they feel ashamed with how they previously treated women.

Aston spoke to Rachael Lloyd, dating expert at eHarmony and Josh Smith, counsellor at Relate.
