Are you feeling frustrated with the dissatisfying process of online dating? Do you feel you’re stuck in a rut of being single? Keep reading to find our top 3 tips to set you up for success towards finding true love in 2021.
1: While single get your priorities in order
On the hunt for love, my suggestion is to start by looking inward with some self-reflection. Ask yourself if the laundry list of “must-haves” in a partner is realistic or better yet necessary for long-term compatibility. Does it really matter if someone is over 6 feet tall and has traveled to every continent? Is your checklist holding you back from finding “the one”?
Research has found that when dating expectations are not met, there may in turn be a negative effect on commitment and relationship happiness. Of course, I’m not implying that you settle for less, but I would suggest a more comprehensive outlook. Instead of putting sole emphasis on looks and financial success, it’s important to consider similar core values, lifestyles, and relationship aspirations. At Maclynn International we believe this is where true compatibility stems from. Many of our clients are often surprised how well they get along with someone they would have never considered dating if we had not introduced them.
2: Take advantage of opportunities
Are you looking but not actually seeing?
Confused? What I mean by this, is are you maximizing all your everyday opportunities to meet someone? When you’re out and about- running errands or grabbing a drink with friends make sure you keep an open mind and say hello to people! The right person for you could be hiding where you least expect them- and a simple smile and some eye contact could be the small nudge they need to come over and start chatting with you!
Another potentially prosperous opportunity would be widening your social circle. Looking to meet like-minded people? Join a new club, take up dancing lessons, or volunteer at a local charity. Psychology suggests the larger your network is, the greater chance you have of meeting a compatible partner.
3: Nurture self-acceptance
We’ve all heard the saying “you can’t fully love someone until you love yourself.” Sometimes it’s not possible to love yourself fully 100% of the time. Instead, I suggest accepting yourself. The good and the not-so-good. Once you accept yourself despite your flaws you will feel more worthy of love and thus more confident- and remember confidence looks good on everyone!
