Are you getting to an age where all of your friends are settling down? If you’re looking for love, you may be sick of looking in all the wrong places. Here are some top tips to help you find that special someone:
Take a holiday
If you’re serious about looking for love, why not try a singles holiday? The great thing about these types of holidays is that there is zero pressure, but everyone there is looking for the exact same thing you are. That means that instead of wasting your time with someone who isn’t quite sure what they want, you can find someone who’s ready and willing to give you the time and commitment you need.
Take every opportunity
Instead of saying no to your happily married friends who insist on hooking you up with their single friend, why not go on the blind date? You never know- that person could be the person you’ve been looking for. When you’re single, it can be easy to get into a slump and avoid another excruciating blind date or Tinder match. But if you’re looking for love, you’re going to have to put yourself out there.
Use those apps
Online dating and dating apps used to have a bad reputation, but I can’t tell you the number of people I know who met their husband or wife on Tinder. Our generation is simply always on our phones, so it makes sense to go where everyone is hanging out. It’s not Tinder or nothing anymore, there are plenty of other apps to choose from depending on what you’re looking for.
Be open to new opportunities
When you’ve been single for a while, it can be easy to get a little…cynical. “There are no good guys in this city” “All the women are taken”, you’ve probably heard (or said) it all before. Whether you believe in attracting your soul mate or not, there’s no doubt that good things happen to fun, positive people. If you’ve already given up on the idea of love, you’re unlikely to find it.
People also want to spend time with people who are happy, and are more likely to think of you when they have a friend who’s looking for a date if you’re positive. If you’re not feeling happy about your prospects, you may want to talk it out. There are many different relationship and life coaches available online to talk to, or you could simply talk about your struggles with a friend who will understand.
